Publisher's Summary

I know exactly why it turns you on...because you're messed up too.

Asha's life is no fairytale, by any stretch of the imagination. There was no kind, generous father to care for and protect her from the Vegas that exists beyond the glitz and glamour of The Strip. No wise, doting mother to look over and guide her, passing down essential lessons and leading her to the right path. And certainly, no Prince Charming just around the corner, ready to rescue her from working late nights to cover steadily mounting bills.

You're not born to sharks without becoming one yourself.

In Vegas, King is exactly what his name implies. Born into money and influence, but respected - and feared - in his own right. The privileges of wealth have afforded him many things, freedom, power, massive eligibility - while simultaneously leaving him exposed to others: betrayal, exploitation, and manipulation.

Like attracts like...

Her poker face has kept her alive all this time, and he keeps his cards close to his chest. Neither is interested in gambling their hearts, but when they can't stay away from each other, there's only one choice...ante up.

Contains mature themes.

Kingston is my new book Bae

This is a sizzling story set in Vegas and the glitz is the backdrop! The story is detailed as if written by a seasoned Vegas poker player! The heat between the two characters is well illustrated by Wesleigh Slobhan and the incomparable Jakobi Diem. Hats off to the author for this riveting story. If only Kingston Whitfield was real! Jakobi, you’re amazing!

Excellent storyline

I always enjoy Ms. Jones books, but found this one to be maybe her best. Great story and character development. The performance...well as always Jakobi Diener was the “TRUTH”! Both performances were excellent. Can’t wait for book 2&3 to become an audiobook.

Great book!

This was a great book. I wasn't a big fan of the storyline but I love Christina's writing style and the narrators were wonderful.

Great Story

Really liked the roller coaster ride I found my on from beginning to end of this book. Also liked the love and intrigue displayed. Would make a great movie! Narration was good; perfect voices for each. Highly recommend!
