Place a good bet on Full Tilt Billionaire + giveaway

I was sold when I saw those gorgeous covers in black and red. Have you seen that smart pose, that angle of the hands, that pure... sensuality? ;o) Soon, book buddies, I'll be reading this series of novellas, and I'll let you know if my sure bet produced a fortune or not.

Full Tilt Billionaire Series
by Jessa Jacobs


It was risky, I knew, but what better way to pay off my student debt and earn money for graduate school than to put my unique skills to work at the tables in Las Vegas? Little did I know just how risky it would be, and how my life would change forever.


My casino security business was doing well, very well. But it wasn’t what I wanted to be doing. I needed a way to clear my name and make the other players trust me again. I needed someone like the woman I noticed winning way too much and hiding herself in ugly clothes to help me with my plan. How was I to know I’d end up needing her for far more than that?

Full Tilt Billionaire is a complete story presented in five parts. 
All but the last part contain cliffhangers.
 They are not standalone, and must be read in order for best enjoyment. 
18+ due to mature content.

PART ONE - Sinful Deal

I was minding my own business, using my skill to win enough money at the blackjack tables to pay off my student debt, when I noticed someone else was minding my business, too.

He was hot, he looked ultra-rich, and he had no reason to notice me. So why was he stalking me from table to table? I thought I might be in trouble for winning too much.

I had no idea how much trouble it would turn out to be.




Smart and provocative, this little morsel is perfect to entice the appetite for the big story it introduces. The main characters speak in their own voices which really makes it more real to me. Tara is genious-samrt when it comes to playing cards, but her debt is so high that she can't refuse the god-like temptation named Marc who proposes a sinfully appealing proposition.

Even though is so short, this first installment manages a great balance between plot and couple potential.

There is enough chemistry between Tara and Marc to giggle at things to come. They won't be able to stop it, I'm sure. What's more, the fluid writing is capable of presenting winning methods about cards and poker in an interesting fashion and spark that competitive strike in a reader who has never played a hand in her life.

So, I'm intrigued to see the transformation in Tara from a mouse into a sophisticated player, and I also want to learn more of Marc's game and see if he holds as many secrets as it seems.

PART TWO - Upping His Ante

It was a deal I couldn’t resist.

Billionaire Marc Andretti, former pro poker champion, picked me to mentor for the pro Texas Hold’em tour, and I was supposed to make enough money to pay off my student loans.

So why am I worried? Well, for one thing, I’m finding it hard to keep my hands off him.

Something’s got to give, and I hope it won’t be my self-control…




It was playfully entertaining to see Tara's inner struggle between her emotional response to the hotter-than-Adonis card-player master and her intent to keep their pact professional.
I loved the plot twist that arises from an ultimatum on Marc's part. It rose the temperature all around.

One thing I do miss is more detail in the scenes. For instance, what each character glimpses and interprets from the other's facial and body language. It would enhance the experience.

Then, the explosive scene at the end took me by surprise. It was hot, fast and hard, but well... so sudden that it came on as too soon and with not enough build-up. I wanted to relish for longer! Anyway, it was fun. And now, how are they going to deal with it? So curious!

PART THREE - Hard Hand

I had made a deal with the Devil.

This particular devil was Billionaire Marc Andretti, former pro poker champion, my dream lover, and as I discovered the hard way, someone who took orders from the Mob.

I’d had enough of his secrets and lies.

So why couldn’t I get enough of HIM?




HARD HAND is getting tougher on all accounts. Tara is feisty in this part, learning new tricks on the gambling tables and behind bedroom doors. Even Marc is impressed with her prowess. It was fun to see his reactions when he feels more connected to her, relishing their relationship on borrowed time. 

There are a few surprises as Marc's past starts to catch up with him and Tara finds out the hard way.

The mage is getting more serious and detailed, which is becoming exciting to read about. And that sexiest-of-all intimacy at the end was also a great addition.

PART FOUR - Surrender the Bet

Better the Devil you know than the Devil you don’t.

I didn’t know Marc anymore. Where was the charming man who won my heart? The on again off again nature of our personal relationship wore me out, but his slightest touch brought me back into his arms, helpless to withstand his power over my desires.

Now he has banished me.

Must I really give him up forever?




Oh, the feelings are running free now. Most of the story is told from Tara's POV, which allows to feel all her abandonment, her need for an aloof Marc, and the unavoidable link she now has both to the game and her elusive mentor.

I liked it a lot when there is a rift and what she does after because when they come together again, there are fireworks!

I'm not sure how I feel about Mark, I want to like him and he's showing some attachement to Tara, but he's a hard nut to crack ;o) In addition, his baggage is as thrilling as dangerous.

Poor Tara is so in love, she just doesn't know how to give up. Though that stubbornness is what makes her such a good poker player, right? Anyway, this installment has one of the saddest endings in the series.

PART Five - Final Table


I was on my own.

My friend, my coach, my lover – Marc – was lost to me. And worse, if I wanted to keep playing toward the World Championship, I would face him across a poker table sooner or later.

Could I win against him at our game, when I’d lost the only thing I wanted from him?

What will be the final outcome?




This is it, the grand finale, the hottest bet and it's surprising to say the least. I was on edge with the change of scenery and that heart-breaking severance between implacable Marc and so-in-love Tara.

Finally, we get to see some strong feelings from this tied-up man, but they don't serve to ease up this impossible relationship as trouble brews big time.

Hidden feelings, a poker tournament and mafia crime all collide to push this couple together for steamy times that were long overdue. I didn't see the plot twist coming, but it was fun and sexy, though I missed a more public outcome and more action on the poker tables.

Overall, the serial is very original, well-researched about gaming techniques, and a whole lot sexy. I'm gonna miss this world!


Like you, I'm a reader. When I read a good story with characters I can connect with, my everyday existence fades into the background as I enter a world that may contain exotic locations, adventure and excitement. And, if I can be totally honest with you, in my favorite stories I can fall in love for a while with an impossibly gorgeous guy who is the best lover imaginable.

So, maybe it won't come as a surprise that in my books you'll find hot alpha male book-boyfriends, sassy heroines who are much more clever and beautiful than I am, and stories I hope will make you laugh and cry while reading them, as I did while writing them. Oh, and some scenes you may want to role-play with your lover.

Why not take a chance? All of my stories are perfect for a lunch-break escape, and priced less than a cup of coffee. In fact, if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, they won't cost you another dime, so take as many as you want! They're calorie-free, too!
