The King (Masterpiece Duet, #1)

The King (Masterpiece Duet, #1)

The King by Skye Warren

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The angst! The suspense! The darkness! The age gap! Ooh la la!
This book turned out to be different than I anticipated, but in a good way. The lead up and back story provided really lent a richness to the book that made all of the difference. I really felt for Penny and Damon. Both of them are without a mother, and with fathers that are hardly fathers at all aside from biology. I just want them to be with each other! I am going to need them to get it together.
I won’t get too much into anything else, but suffice to say I am thus far loving this duet, and am heading straight off to dive into book two!

Trigger warning: contains a reference to non-consent of a person under 18 (not real-time, and not graphic).

The highest stakes…

My father gambles every night, falling deeper and deeper into debt. When he hits the bottom, he places a new bet: his daughter. I’m his entry bet to the biggest underground poker game.

Every kind of danger circles the velvet-covered table, but only one man makes me tremble.

A trailer park princess.

The son of a criminal king.

We don’t belong together, but I’m caught in a twisted game.

His eyes meet mine with dark promise. And when he puts down his cards, I know I’m going to lose more than my body. I’m going to lose everything.

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
