“He was a mystery man I knew nothing about, and that made him even more appealing.”
Wild Aces is my very first book by this author and I absolutely devour this story in one setting. It was honestly nothing I expected to be and everything at the same time. I will be reading more of this author for sure.
Trapper Montgomery grew up in the foster system and had an awful childhood growing up; at an early age he knew that no one is worthy of his trust and he had to fend for himself. He turns his life around when he finally gets the break he needed and earned his living as a professional poker player. He practiced patient and how to read people for so many years that he knew exactly how to use a poker face and always win big time.
Brea Bradley was finally recovering from sad events in her life. She had lost the love of her life and it changed her life forever. She just couldn’t deal but family and friends helped her and were there for her. Brea worked for her best friend and one evening at her friend’s masquerade party she meets this mysterious guy; she didn’t see his face but she wanted him as much as he wanted their attraction was instant. It was really not an insta-love kind of book this was an insta-lust but one that you will truly enjoy. Two gorgeous people attracted to each other definable nothing wrong with that.
That day changed both of their lived; Trapper left to Vegas for a big poker event and Brea was left with her needs for him. They communicated via text and phone calls and that’s how their relationship started; everything was great until he comes back and they finally get to meet each other for the first time. Brea literally lost it believing Trapper was her ex-lover and Trapper finds himself so confused and bound to find answers. Both of them realized something is up and with both of their research; secrets come out and it was a very suspenseful read that I enjoyed very much.
Not wanting to loose whatever each other have started feeling; they team up to find out the truth. Once they finally get to the bottom of everything their relationship is amazing. Truly hot and steamy and Trapper was definable a HOT man you don’t want to miss on. If you have not read this book to all my romance/suspense reader this one is a must that I highly recommend. You will not regret this sexy, suspenseful, and hot ride.
His darkness drew me in.
A mystery with a past I wanted to solve.
He was cold, like ice, but set me on fire.
A heat I hadn’t felt in ages.
But when I saw his face, I burned…
She melted from my voice–shuddered from my touch.
But trembled from the memories
That my face brought back.
She wanted more…
Maybe even him.
I wasn’t the hand she counted on.
But I was what she was dealt…
A Wild Ace with no way to win.
