Ah, who knew I would fall in love with Aces Up? I know this because she told me. The plot of the story was exciting but I feel like the book would have been better without the impolite language. But it was Max who is was the surprise of the book for me.

A flimsy, totally stretchable piece of fabric. I couldn't have asked for anything more.
She was too calculative but in the end her estimates were still off. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.
Every character in this book is just horrible. Nov 29, Ariana rated barnholet did not like it. I think I was expecting something cutesy and fluffy and something closer kp what the cover feels to me when I look at it, but instead the tone felt scandalous more then anything. He was perfectly nice about it.
Which, surprisingly, was actually a really great idea if she would have pulled it off correctly. But Aces Up is well yes, different acez it involves money and casino. The characters are all very much likeable. And while there is poker, and there are relationships in this book, I found both aspects to be quite surprising.
I need a backup form of identification. It follow the similar line except without the whole teamwork aspect. Maybe I just need someone to zip me up? I love people who are very surprising and outspoken and fun like Mackenzie is! Though the whole being-amazing-and-winning-tons-of-money blackjack was kind of hard to truly believe, Barnholdt made it up with the lovable characters and cute story. And had some great poker talk.
Overall, though it's short and acea, Aces Up sends a message that I think is worth a lot and definitely worth the read! The plot of the story is pretty fast. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources.
One instance, but eight actual drinks Number of times butt was pinched luren drunk, poker-playing men: Read more Read less. Not too friendly around here, are they? One Night That Changes Everything.
ACES UP by Lauren Barnholdt | Kirkus Reviews
I just wanted to get on with the story. Keep notebook for special orders. Her narration is peppered with pop-culture references and poker strategy, and her tendency to make lists is used to amusing effect. Shannon is all set to say no to Cole's offer.
Feb 26, Moon Love rated it liked it. I thought the narrator was judgmental, irritating, stupid, and selfish.
Review: Aces Up by Lauren Barnholdt.
The premise is the only thing this book has going for it. And lots of it.
She treated people like crap for no reason. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.
