About this ebook

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.

THE KING is the first book in the new Masterpiece duet about risking your heart and finding yourself. It's a spin-off from the USA Today bestselling trilogy but can be read separately.

Way different never would have thought to use Chess pieces but a good book. Like how the guys fight over her just dont all the holding grudges, or would have gave more stars.

This book was very dark, raw, and emotional. There was defintely innocence lost,but there a need to fight for the life you what. Penny and Damon have that connection and I wonder how this be pulled off in the next book.

You know that feeling you get when you are so excited you almost tremble. The undiscovered joy and fear when you are about to open a present. Is it something you have been dying for or just something to fill a box? The desperate need to know amps up your excitement so you are on the border of frenzied. The King makes that feeling your normal. I was dying to know how Penny fit into everything since we first saw her wet body lifeless in Damon's arms in The Castle. The edgy feeling had me on the edge the entire book. Because I want something...I need it to happen. Yet Skye Warren leaves me on the edge of that feeling questioning if I really want to turn the page...Yes, I really do. You will need to as well. Almost addiction... Skye Warren is a siren. She uses her words to draw you in. She brings you to places you never would have gone. Her words lure you there with anticipation and a smile on your face. While you are caught up in the web they weave, she locks you into place with invisible chains. Now you can't go but you also can't stay... You are left in between. Between the wanting and the waiting...for The Queen.
