B&N: Coming soon
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.
Wild Aces caught me with the prologue. It had pain and the need for survival all over its pages. I was fighting with him. As I started reading the first couple of chapters it kind of lost some of its impact with me. The sexy scenes were seriously hot and Trapper is all mysterious, hot and naughty. But it was missing something for me. I hard a hard time with the insta thing they had going and I just couldn't connect to the characters the way I liked. The story was good and I wanted to read to the end to find out what was happening.
Marni Mann did a great job of building a suspense in me wondering what Trapper was into and what he was doing. I enjoyed the hints until the reveal. Wild Aces wasn't what I was expecting but it was a good book to enjoy.
