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.

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.

I have seen the reviews and heard nothing but great things about Skye Warren's, The King. So I was happy to dive into the book. Little did I know the emotional roller coaster I was going to get myself into. This is my first book I have read by Skye Warren. I seriously need to read her other books she has before this duet. My heart was crying for Damon. He was trapped and his only saving grace was Penny. When he first met her, you knew that there was some innocence in these two. Not so much in Damon, but he still had a bit of growing to do. When they meet again, he has so much he hopes for and Penny may help him get them both there. I yelled at my Kindle a time or two cussing out Penny's father. I reflected after the book and know that I need to read the conclusion in The Queen. I am a fan of Skye and The King was definitely a Masterpiece!
