GHBT: Bluffing the Devil by C.L. Foster- Review & Giveaway

Bluffing the Devil
By C.L. Foster
Expected Publication Date-May 2013

After losing her fiancé to a freak accident, Alexia Riley decides to swear off relationships and focus her energy on conquering the male-dominated sport of professional poker.

When Alexia finds herself being visited in her dreams by a mysterious new man, she begins to wonder if her world is slowly starting to unravel around her.

Tested by a double-dealing nemesis on the tables and tempted by a mysterious "dream man", Alexia soon contemplates making a deal with the Devil to rid herself of these torments. What bargain will she strike with the Dark Prince to get what she wants? As temptation for a mysterious dream man weakens her resolve, a desire to defeat her greatest rival beckons her. Will she sacrifice her soul for victory? Love? Or does she want something else entirely?

The stakes have never been higher for Alexia than they are when she is bluffing the Devil.


I just... I cannot wrap my head around...

I am totally thrown... I don't even know how to explain my undying love of this book. And I was very worried to start it, because C.L. Foster is one of my new favorite people to stalk, and the thought I might not like her book made me want to cry. But thankfully, I can definitely continue to fangirl over her all. day. long. and disturb her awesomeness with my creeperness and everyone can be happy.

Bluffing the Devil is (a terribly evil story) about Alexia (Lexi), a woman who lost her husband to "a horrible accident" (no spoilers, sowee) and lost herself in the world of professional poker, and falls in love with a man she "made up" (again). I am making this book sound ridiculous aren't I? I know I am. But honestly, after reading it, I feel like everything I say is a spoiler. Foster is one of those shedevilgeniesquirrelninjas who can have the truth dangling in front of you the entire time and you don't even realize. Which I LOVE.

And on top of this having an awesome plot, I love the writing style, and Lexi is one of my new favorite characters. Such a smart ass with her Devil May Care (pun intended) attitude, and her passion for one of my favorite card games. Ugh. Is it legal to marry a book? No kidding?

Five stars is insulting to this novel. 5,000,000! 5,000,000,000,000! I cannot add enough zeros. Just. READ IT.
