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.
I was anxiously awaiting Damon Scott’s story and The King did not disappoint. I have loved The Endgame Series since the beginning and was super excited about the Masterpiece Duet.
Damon and Penny’s relationship begins early and sets the tone of the story. The King is not easy to read because of Penny’s age, which I didn’t realize while reading The Endgame Series. She is mature and strong beyond her years, an intelligent yet damaged young woman that has seen and experienced more in her life then she should have. This makes her the perfect foil for the equally damaged Damon. I also thought him slightly deranged but I understand him so much better now.
This book is best read after the first series. It is definitely not for people that get easily offended. That being said, Skye Warren did an amazing job not being graphic about details, instead just giving the reader enough to understand what happened. I adore these books and can not wait for the next one!
