I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This freaking story is so good!
Kelsie’s best book to date!
I cannot even fully express what this book is about without giving anything away and possibly ruining something for you.
I could not put it down.
I didn’t want to put it down.
Too bad I have work, a husband, a kid and home to take care of on days like this when I get sucked into such a wonderful story.
This one had me on my toes a few times. Completely on the edge of my seat.
And that ‘ending’?!?! Eek!!!!
No spoilers from me.
The book is fast paced, exciting and an incredibly addictive plot. I began reading last night and almost read it all in one sitting, refusing to end my reading journey due to being completely inmersed.
The story focuses on Ace, a beautiful young card counter who frequents the city’s casinos in order to to gain money for her ultimate goal. For years she has be ...more

I honestly could not put this book down! Kelsie does such a brilliant job drawing the reader into Kingston and Ace's world that you down want to leave it. This book is a bit of a departure from the Signature Sweethearts series but Kelsie definitely does not disappoint. As someone who has no idea the rules or regulations regarding poker, I was a little bit nervous about reading a story that centered around gambling, casinos and the mob, but I was able to follow along easily with how descriptive a...more
Ace is such a great character. She’s been through so much in her young life, which has made her into the tough, nearly untouchable woman that she is. However, her life hasn’t stopped her from going for what she wants and enacting revenge on an enemy in a way that I thought was clever and really cool ...more

Wild Card is Kelsie's latest 5 star winning release. This page turning mafia romance is filled with suspense, twists and surprises that will have you speeding to the climax like a bat out of hell. In Ace, a card counting loner bent on revenge, Kelsie introduces us to yet another incredible female lead who is not only beautiful, and smart as a whip but also has the guts and resolve to stand up to not one, but two mafia bosses.
This was a dark romance that sent chills through me, the suspense was sky high and it did not finish at the end of this story but continues on in the next book in the series. Ace was a young girl determined to have her revenge on the man she views as responsible for her mother's disappearance. When she is caught counting cards at a Romano Casino she meets with the head man himself King. There is a chemistry between them that has them bo ...more

Ace is essentially a loner, she knows what she wants and has a plan in place to get it. Even a few curve balls can't derail her plan, it's taken her too long to finally be in a position to execute it.
Kingston is now t ...more
This is a new Author to me. Now I’m stalking her Amazon page for her other books,I really enjoyed reading this story. Ace is young pretty and she can count cards. She knows how to blend in and win some cash at casino’s. She has a single focus and that’s to win a poker tournament against the man who she thinks killed her mom but that man is Mafia so she needs to play it smart. While she’s practicing her skills at another casino she catches the eye of owner Kingston w ...more

This book was such a departure from her Signature Sweethearts series and her other standalones, which just goes to show what a great writer she is. She builds suspense, sprinkles in a little romance, and then ends on a cliffhanger ...more
To me, a great author can dabble in many genres and do it well, and this describes Kelsie Rae to a T. I’ve read all of Rae’s books, and while this one is very different than what I’m used to from her, she has done it beautifully.
This book is extremely well rounded. It is gripping, exciting, entertaining, funny, and even made me a little squeamish! I could not read it fast enough.
Rae’s characters are so believable. Her character development is incredible. You s ...more
I’ve never really been a fan of mafia romances, but Kingston, aka, the Dark King is sexy as hell and this book may have me rethinking my romance genres. Kingston shows his gentle, white knight side to Ace, but that’s not exactly the side of Kingston you meet in the beginning of the book.
I’m not going to lie, it took me until Chapter 6/7 to understand how all the characters were placed ...more
