    Crazy ending! What a super snarky crazy amazing series. The unexpected always happens, and the dialog is totally funny. I adore Luke and Anabel. Luke is so serious while Anabel just blurts out everything she thinks, sometimes even talking to herself out loud. The two wouldn't seem to mix, but their chemistry is amazing and their encounters often amusing. I have enjoyed every story in this series. I've gotta say, the ending for this story caught me off guard. I even find myself speculating whether Crazy ending! What a super snarky crazy amazing series.

    Tracy Ellen is at it again with her brilliant writing and devious plot line. Readers crave more of Anabel, Luke, and the crazy Axelrods as each of the books within this series comes to an end. However, nothing can prepare readers for the cliff hangers/open ends of Family & Fortune. I was completely shocked at the turn of events that occurred!

    I honestly can't say enough about this series. I wish I was friends with these character's. Not one other series has ever made me laugh out loud as much as this one. I don't even usually write reviews but I always do for these. The characters in these books I find are totally relatable personality wise and entertaining as hell, so if you don't want to laugh and be entertained, these books aren't for you.

    Another winner! (it primarily takes place in Las Vegas.) Anabel Axelrod is delightful and she is well matched by Luke Drake. This story had intrigue, mystery, madcap adventures, witty dialogue and lots of laughs. Trouble finds Anabel despite traveling to Las Vegas for the first time. This Book (# 5 in the series,) has less drama then previous ones, but that was a welcome relief. Here, I finally believed they've become a solid couple.

    Another great adventure! Well I have to say that, as I continue to read this series I'm beginning to envision whom I'd like to see play each character if a TV series were to ever be contemplated. Great work thus far Tracy Ellen! I can't wait to see where Anabel Axelrod will take me next.... Las Vegas was pretty fun, though I felt hugely bad for Stella and Eric George. I don't like spoilers, because I believe you should experience a story firsthand. You will not be disappointed with this series! HAP Another great adventure!

    4.25 stars of fortune. This is another winner from Tracy Ellen and the Anabel Axelrod series. The dialog is as snarky as ever, the plot twists never end, and the Axelrods are as quirky as always. Pure entertainment with a side of laugh out loud humor. Luke and Anabel are at it again. Anabel still has no filter and Luke is sometimes speechless when she opens her mouth. No matter where Anabel goes she ends up in trouble. Luke's time in Delta Force never prepared him for what Anable gets herself in 4.25 stars of fortune.

In this installment, they are headed to Vegas for the weddings of Reg & Anna and Stella & Eric George. Within thirty minutes of arriving Anabel becomes embroiled in an altercation between a maid and one of Vegas's most notorious criminals. And that's when the fun begins. This is one of my favorite series and I can't wait to see what's next for Luke and Anabel. I know their story doesn't stop here....cliffhanger alert!!!!

Now I am more anxiously awaiting the next installment. HURRY!!!

All I can say about the ending is Wow! I highly recommend this series and this book.

    Good Until the Last Chapter I loved book 4 of the series and had high hopes for book 5. The author did have to put in the suspense and intrigue. The story was great with getting to know the characters as average people. I was all excited with the idea of a spontaneous wedding. That is what Luke and Anabel are all about. But to end the story the way it did was very disappointing.

If it was meant to be funny because Anabel is getting something she never wanted, it wasn't. There isn't even a tease that there will be more to come. I had such high hopes for this book and Tracy Ellen you let me down.

    I was so looking forward to this book but I have to say I am somewhat disappointed that we didn't get to see more of the kidnaping. Also, I saw the ending coming from almost the beginning. Hope something in the next book will change where this ending was headed. If not how can the Annabel I love sneak out in the middle of the night with her sisters for some mischief?

    I did not see that coming! I was confused by what happened to Anabel and how she ended up with Kyle. But considering the condition she was in and the fact that this is first person pov, I guess it makes sense. But the ending caught me off guard! Nothing ever happens the way Anabel plans!

New characters are introduced and described by Anabel in her usual hilarious ways. Ash’s obsession with Disney songs had me laughing so hard, I had to put my Kindle down to compose myself before continuing. When reading about the spiderman, I couldn’t help thinking that this series could easily jump into the paranormal genre and I would still love it just as much, and the ending had me smiling at the thought. As always, I love Luke Drake. He could kill baskets full of kittens, and I am pretty sure I would still be obsessed with that fictional man, but I like to think that the man of my dreams wouldn’t do such a horrible thing to innocent little kittens. :-) This series is well worth every penny and one I plan to read over and over again. You are seriously missing out if you pass this one up!

    This is the 1dt installment I haven't adored. I enjoyed it, definitely and some of the dialogue had me in stitches but there was something slightly off about this story. I found despite the unrealistic dramas of the other stories you could still relate but this installment was different. The ending also was just not quite right and though I've literally just finished this book I'll have to read through the ending again. I've read the lot in about 6 days and thoroughly enjoyed them.

I just went back a reread all of the first six books that are published and I was reminded that these stories are super enthralling, super sexy, and downright addicting! How can they not be when you have a feisty, independent, self-aware female protagonist and a man to match?!
