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.
If you were like me and followed this dark world since The Endgame series then you know exactly who Damon Scott is. We even get a brief introduction into Penny except for how she got where we find her in The Castle (My Review).
I was fascinated with Damon and what made him tick from the beginning… even more so when Penny was thrown into the dark world of underground of all things that are just so f*ed up. No one has a perfect life in this series and reading through this book was like picking at a scab and getting it infected again. Where The Endgame series ends in HEA we are thrown back into the time when Damon’s evil dad ruled and tormented all. So many cans of worms are opened that terrifies me even more so because Penny in present time is just barely 16.
While no explicit things happen the fact that Penny is young is overshadowed by how much she had to grow up and quickly since meeting Damon at age of 5.
The first 25% of the book is titled The Prince which was released as novella earlier which focuses on the time when Penny was just a kid and Damon trying to survive and escape his dad’s clutches. In part 2 of the book titled The King we just forward and see the different side… Penny’s side as the events of The Castle unravel.
In Skye Warren’s usual style I was left wanting more… and NOW when the final (for this first part of the duet) bomb drops.
