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.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

If someone  asked me today “Who are among your favorite  new-to-me authors?” I would definitely say Skye Warren. I was instantaneously hooked while reading  The Pawn ( Endgame #1) and “The King” isn’t any different.

“The King” is about an intelligent teen girl named Penny who due to her father’s addictions is forced to mature before her actual age. Her skills don’t escape the two major power players notice and this is how she becomes a puppet in their dangerous games.

Damon Scott, in particular, takes an interest in her. In fact, he is borderline obsessed with Penny. He would literally do anything for her but then as soon as he does this “grand gesture” his attitude towards her completely changes. And at first, I could see where things were going but the author surprises me towards the very end. Unpredictability is definitely a plus in this instance.

As expected, The King is a cliffhanger (hence duet)  but I am I guarantee the wait will so be worth it.  What I loved most about it was how the Skye Warren effortlessly integrated her Endgame Series and Masterpiece Duet together. They were amazing on their own but intertwined as one? It is even better!

If you haven’t started these series, I suggest you do so now! Don’t miss out on these magnificent stories.
