Blog Tour & Review ~~ The Vanilla Bet by Ella Emerson
Trace Weston is a classic rich college playboy from privileged Palm Beach, Florida. He is just going through life partying and jumping from girl to girl. Until he loses a bet at a poker game. His punishment for losing is having to date, “Vanilla” Vanessa for an entire month. Vanessa Summers isn’t the type of girl Trace is used to… although she is beautiful, she is simple, sweet and sincere. Poor Vanessa is clueless about the bet. She is simply being herself… while doing so, she unlocks sides of Trace he didn’t know existed. He seems to be more than meets the eye. Protective, compassionate, kind and even loyal! Is this the real Trace?? Will they ultimately fall for each other or will it all blow up in their faces? While they are getting to know each other, strange things start happening… you will be guessing who is behind them till the end. Ella created memorable characters. Especially Maxine, Vanessa’s best friend. She is a trip and will make you laugh quite a few times. Ella also did a great job depicting Palm beach and college life…. She made me want to go back!!
Ella Emerson is a new author. She is still learning and will continue to grow with experience. She has great ideas but there are rookie mistakes throughout the book. Grammatical and plot errors that frustrated me, because any good editor or beta team should have caught them. I do not blame or penalise her for the fault of others.
She is an author to keep your eye on… I see so much potential! I’m looking forward to more from The Palm Beach Princess series!
Boys will be boys! College partying, a simple game of cards and a bet. This starts off this sweet Romantic mystery by Ella Emerson. My second story I’ve read by her, I see a very talented writer in the midst!
Reading the first chapter I stepped into the hot and sandy world of Palm Beach. While I’m sitting here in almost below zero temps, I was excited like a little kid at the zoo reading this. I meet a cute sexy college boy named Trace Weston. He is very popular with the girls and has a very well known reputation. Having a father who is demanding him to go into a profession he is not eager to start instead he wants to party in college. Enjoying the no string attached relationships. Well that’s until he gets an unlucky hand of cards.
Vanessa Summers, studies and working her way to a bright future, are the two things on her mind. Having a history with a bad relationship, boys are far from what she wants right now.
These two got another thing coming when they are put together one night. Bets and awakened feelings mixed up together is about to explode with unexpected surprises.
While feelings are exposed, mystery and fright swarm around in the air. What is in the future for Trace and Vanessa?
I really enjoyed what Ella did here! She brings out likeable and fresh characters. I laughed and chuckled a lot with these guys, bringing me back to my college years and all the fun I had! I recommend this sweet, sexy, witty and thrilling story with a mystery twist to all readers. I felt like a reading detective trying to piece all the clues together. Ella brought the surprise and suspence. I give this story a 3.5 stars, while I loved the story, there were a few grammical errors and minor things that I wish were added. This is Ella’s second series and she keeps getting better and better! I am really looking forward to reading many more from her.
In high school she discovered her love for reading, and even had one of her poems published in a national magazine. She continues to read, write, review and hopefully she can become an inspiration to her own children, as well as others.
