It’s the height of summer in Las Vegas. Everyone believes the serial killer Seven of Spades is dead—except Levi Abrams and Dominic Russo—and it’s back to business as usual. For Levi, that means investigating a suspicious overdose at the Mirage that looks like the work of a high-class call girl, while Dominic pursues a tough internship with a local private investigator. The one bright spot for both of them is their blossoming relationship.

But things aren’t so simple. Soon Levi is sucked into a dangerous web of secrets and lies, even as his obsession with the Seven of Spades intensifies. Dominic knows that Levi isn’t crazy. He knows the Seven of Spades is still out there, and he’ll do anything to prove it. But Dominic has his own demons to battle, and he may be fighting a losing war.

One thing is certain: the Seven of Spades holds all the cards. It won’t be long before they show their hand.

5+++ stars

Cordelia Kingsbridge leaves no box unticked with this series y’all! Seriously, this is already in my top ten books for 2018 and it’s only January.

I can’t say much without spoiling the story, but believe me if you loved Kill Game, you ‘re going to want to have Trick Roller’s babies.

The mystery blew my mind! Both mysteries actually. The trick roller case that is Levi’s new assignment, and the Seven of Spades, the ongoing theme in the series and the case that Levi never gave up on. This and Dal Maclean’s Bitter Legacy are quite possibly the best MM mystery/suspense books I ‘ve ever read.

Levi and Dominic’s relationship starts to take off. It’s not just sex now that emotions start getting in the way. The suspense plot might always be at the forefront but the romance is still strong.

The sex. What can I possibly say about the sex? The two full on sex scenes count for ten! Levi is WILD! And really, really bendy!

The ending is very strong and left me gaping like an idiot. Honestly it puts to same some of the best movies.

Every secondary chracter is very well sketched. I really like some of them but at this point I suspect everyone.

I can’t say more, but trust me, you want to read this. Highly recommended!

Mother, wife, teacher and READER. I read MM almost exclusively. My kindle is my best friend and the most important thing in my life after my son. My poor husband…

I read MM romance almost exclusively. As a reader I don’t have any hard limits except incest. I like Contemporary and Historicals and I rarely read Paranormal unless recommended…
