I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Ace and King are two different sides of a coin. But somehow they fit. Ace is a nonsense type of person. Which I think made me like her even more. She could tit for tat without even blinking an eye. King ha ...more
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.
At first I hated this. A lot of the same old heroines that suffer in silence, think they’re special because they’re ‘different’ from other girls, has a gorgeous BFF and doesn’t know she’s hot until the hero comes along. But the more I read the more I was fine with it. But ‘fine’ as in, when I’m done reading this I won’t ever think back on it again.
This book was so fucking perfect! It was amazing mafia romance. I loved every minute of it, every page! From the moments I started reading, I could barely breathe.
The story was suspense, romance, sexy, and scary. Great development of the characters and plot.
So much happens with so many different emotions...
Both Kingston and Ace had a tragic past. But they fight for better future. When they meet each other it was love on the first sight. And Kingston ❤️❤️❤️ I'm in love with this man. I'm a ...more
A really good, yet slightly predictable, read! I loved our characters and I’m anxious to find out what happens next. This is a dark romance, so don’t go into this book expecting prince charmings in the men. They’re lovable a$$holes with questionable morals, yet hot as h e double hockey sticks. Even though our love interest is between Kingston and Ace, we get a few other characters POVs also, and I can’t wait to see how those characters play out i ...more
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
The pace is quick, the action is intense, and there's quite a bit of angst and intrigue to keep you on the edge of your seat woven through the book to keep you hooked from start t ...more
Mafia romance with so many twists, point of views and turns you will be on the edge of your seat! It does end in a cliffhanger, but don’t let that stop you.
The chemistry between Ace and Kingston is off the charts hot! I love them and what is starting between the two of them. The storyline is fantastic and keeps you on your toes. A book you won’t ...more
It’s dark and keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what happens next!
Full of Mafia, mob bosses, gambling, counting cards, mob wars, love, friendship,kidnapping and drama.
This was my first book by this author and it will not be my last.
Be sure to check this book out when it releases
Here's your review - although AT THIS MOMENT - I don't like you very much! A cliffhanger, REALLY - UGH!! ~~
I would give this book/story 10 stars if they were available - it is THAT GOOD! You KNOW I've already got Book 2 & 3 in my KU library. I'm an Ace fan. And I'm ready for the bad guy to get what's coming.
Thank you for your time, talent and THE STORY! ...more
My only one complaint is it ends in a cliff hanger but that can be readily fixed by getting the next book in the series. I liked the chemistry between Ace and Kingston. I hope the next book will reveal more about Jack’s role and that it is as enjoyable to read as this one was.
I follow Kaylee Ryan on Facebook and she had a post asking authors to tag there books, Kelise tagged this one and Thank God she did!! This was my first Kelise Rae book and my first mafia romance, to say I’m now addicted is an understatement.
Ace is the heroine no one asked for but everyone needs in their lives, she’s smart and even though she’s had it tough she doesn’t give u ...more
Wild Card Advantage Play, Book 1
By: Kelsie Rae
Narrated by: Kelsey Navarro, Aaron Shedlock
I loved everything about this book, from Kelsie Rae’s wonderful writing style to the story and characters she created to the perfectly casted narrators who did an awesome job bringing her story to life. There is great world building and character development too. Acely “Ace” Mezzarich has not had the easiest of lives, but she always focuses on accomplishing ...more
Ace is a card-counting badass hiding behind short skirts and blonde wigs. She slips into the casino, wins at black-jack and slips ...more
Ace is a unique girl/women who has her own story. It will make you tear up, worry, and cheer her on. Unfortunately, life has been hard for her and it doesn’t look like it’s ...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
