I always love those badass films. Un claro ejemplo de los errores adolescentes: I work on practicing The Secret, that book that says whatever you think will actually become your reality, and conjure up an image myself at Wellesley, walking on campus with a book bag full of newly purchased schoolbooks in one hand, and a grande peppermint latte in the other. Even more badass for a girl. One instance, but eight actual drinks Number of times butt was pinched by drunk, poker-playing men: The plot was unique for YA but I did notice some similarities to 21except in this story the characters play Texas Hold’em which I found was fun to read as I know this poker game p.
My problem with her was when it comes to her characterisation. That just seems really stupid.
In second grade I took gymnastics. There was no climax or resolution.
She comes off so daft, there’s no believable way she’s actually a math genius. But when Shannon musters up the nerve to kiss Max and he doesn’t react at all, the allure of Aces Up and its sexy eighteen-year-old leader, Cole, is suddenly too powerful to ignore. At first she was skeptical because she has enough to worry about: After taxes, that works out to about forty dollars maybe?
View all 4 comments. I have a very good memory. When I got to pageI realized there was only a couple of pages left and the story had not gotten anywhere. Totally not a big deal.
Apr 28, Cristina rated it liked it. I was actually guessing that the book had nothing to do with card games only maybe only with bets, but it seemed that the title was taken a bit literal by the author. At my interview last week, when she asked me why I wanted this job, I told her I loved interacting with people, and she laughed, like she thought I was joking.
Reading her books make me feel 17 again, which in essence, is why I enjoy reading YA. Her relationship with her sister Robyn I loved; they were in the same boat yet do completely different things to resolve the issue but they’re there for each other always.

But when Shannon musters up the nerve to kiss Max and he doesn’t react at all, the allure of Aces Up and its sexy eighteen-year-old leader, Cole, is suddenly too powerful to ignore. Her boss is a tyrant, her coworker is nuts, and her chances of balancing a tray full of drinks while wearing high-heeled shoes are slim to none. Seventeen Number of drinks served: The lights overheard bounce off her perfectly white, perfectly straight teeth.
With summer finally here, Aces Up is the perfect book to lay outside under the sun and read. I loved Shannon’s wit, daring choices and mental tangents because she came across as a relatable character that was easy to sympathize for. I just didn’t want to be the jerk that gave it one star. Number of times yelled at by Mackenzie: To top it off, Shannon accepts an invitation to join a secret gambling society Aces Upand finds herself tangled in a massive web of illegal activity.
It’s fast paced and I like how I never really knew what was going to happen next. But he has problems expressing and handling emotions, and has broken her heart before.
I laruen this book. Not too friendly around here, are they? Something about the writing style really appealed to me–it was like I was actually there apart of the story and going along for the ride. Not that I mind scandalous, I guess I just didn’t expect that concept in this particular read.
Book Review / Aces Up by Lauren Barnholdt ~ Debra’s Book Cafe
Most barnholst the time I like the ranting tone, but this time, it kind of annoyed me. And since they have somehow decided to give me a size two uniform, then really, they should be the oauren apologizing to me. For example, I need twenty thousand dollars still to pay my tuition. Her boss is a tyrant, her coworker is nuts, and her chances of balancing a tray full of drinks while wearing high-heeled shoes are slim to none.
And a thing or two to learn, hot guys can actually turn out to be jerks. She’s pining over her best friend, Max. I just kinda scowled at the last page and deleted the book off my phone. Which, surprisingly, was actually a really great idea if she would have pulled it off correctly. bxrnholdt
The chips make a clinking noise as she stacks them up.
