Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: The hot guy arrives first: he's in a crosswalk clutching a bag of groceries while a blonde in a Hummer is learning hard on her horn, sending the man's groceries and white cane flying. How has this woman missed that fact that the man is blind? From the curb, an outraged Allie jumps to his rescue, rebagging the groceries as well.The money is in the bag. Literally- Thomas Bennington III, for that's who the handsome guy proves to be, has bought a MondoMegaJackpot ticket along with canned tomatoes. Allie takes him home and turns his groceries into dinner for two. Later that night, Tom hears the numbers announced. He's won. And he's less than thrilled. PhD Tom had gambled on the odds of losing (175 million to one) to prove a point to Rune, a kid from the projects he's befriended, that only losers buy lottery tickets. Instead, Rune, who'd helped pick the Mondo numbers, will share Tom's jackpot.Allie and Tom grasp two things: one, they're hot for each other, and two, the ticket is a hot target, and now so are they. Every scheming weasel in Cleveland will be after Tom's millions. $550 of them. Yes, once the Mondo ball drops, it's game on with killers and kidnappers as players.Allie and Tom need to get smarter about the threats all around them. On the run from one fancy hotel refuge to another and from one danger moment to the next, with only Allie s feisty landlady, Margo, and a couple of Cleveland cops for back-up, Allie and Tom evolve a strategy. First, turn in the ticket and claim the jackpot. Second, set up accounts to manage the millions. Third, stay alive to the end of the weekif they can.

    Divorced and down on her luck, Allie Harper rescues a blind man, Thomas Bennington III, who is about to be run over by a woman in a Hummer, and they form an instant connection. That evening, while having dinner with Allie, Bennington learns he has won the Mondo jackpot of $550 million—a real problem since he only bought the ticket to convince his young friend, Rune, of the futility of playing the lottery. As soon as the news is out, both of their houses are ransacked, Allie's landlady is assaulted, and the bodies begin to pile up as Cleveland's criminal element works to find and steal the ticket. The two begin to investigate to protect themselves, hiding in hotels while keeping tabs on Rune. When the killer makes a final desperate play for the money, the two make a choice that may cost them their lives. Fast pacing, multiple plot twists, and humor, including a Stephanie Plum–like main character, enliven the story and keep the pages turning. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
