Publisher's Summary

He kidnapped me. Held me prisoner.

I knew Junior Tacone was dangerous.

I worked for him once taking care of his mother.

I thought when the job was over I’d be safe.

Out of his awareness. Out of his reach.

But his brother took a bullet and Junior chose me to be his nurse.

So I’m his prisoner, trapped in his beautiful house, subject to his rule.

And it seems he’s developed a thing for me.

Which means he may never let me go....

Note: This steamy stand-alone romance is the fifth in USA Today best-selling author Renee Rose's Vegas Underground series. No cheating, no cliffhangers.

redemption for junior

I loved that Junior was Desiree's kryptonite and vice versa. I enjoyed seeing Junior had a heart, and especially his efforts with finding Jasper. Desiree was a true gift to all the Tacones, because she humanized this rigid tough guy and made him a better person for everyone to enjoy the benefits of. Up to this point I hated Junior and his ways. but now he's transformed and redeemed. Great job author!! I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing the characters and story to life.

Junior's Fall

"Vegas Underground" is one of the BEST Mafia Romance series I've read, hands down - I could NOT read them fast enough! I go through serious withdrawal and feel compelled to reread them all the minute I'm done. (I may had a problem...) "Joker's Wild" is really satisfying, because we get to see Junior, the Big, Bad Oldest Tacone FINALLY fall. His story was surprisingly emotional and beautiful.

Entertaining

I was so entertained with this instalment. It is equally great as the first two books! I’m glad the authors can always come up with stories that are amazing and well-thought of! Great!

Great book

This book is a wonderful addition to the Vegas Underground series. Junior was very good with Desiree, even though she is kidnapped and forced to take care of his brother Joe when he was shot. Slowly they fell in love but both came with a lot of baggage. Great ending. I love how Junior opened up to Desiree. Benjamin Sands did a great job with the narration.

My review

I liked the voice but I cannot relate to Desiree when it's her turn to speak or perhaps it does not matched the voice in my head. :D.

Enjoyable book

This was a surprise, I never really likes the character of Junior much in previous books, but this one shows a whole new side to him which surprised me as I never thought he could be shown in a redeeming light. after all even his brother's were wary of him
This had a enjoyable enjoyable and likeable characters.
Again I liked the narration. As a non US listener, I've struggled with the US accent in a lot of books on Audible, however have found I prefer the ones with male narrators.

So enjoyable

This is a great listen and finally getting Juniors book was such a welcome book. It was so enjoyable to see the different sides of Junior after seeing the little snippets that were hinted at through the previous books.

Mafia Bad Man

No one should miss this one
The ultimate billionaire Bad Man...this definitely not a boy! Bred up by his father to be the next leader of the Tacone mafia family n the Windy City, the heir the throne and in charge while the Don is in jail. Running the family's loan sharking business, in a dispute over territory There's a trap and he shoots and kills every last one of the Bratva who tried to ambush him. His brother Gio is badly injured in the firefight, hospital is out of the question, as Gio would be arrested. So what does he do? Kidnaps a feisty trauma nurse and makes her care for his brother at home. Definitely a Bad Man!
But even a Bad Man can have tragedy in his life that colours his every move from the start. And this trauma nurse, has tragedy too, as her young son has been stolen from her.
He had begun to want her for himself when she was employed nursing his Mother a while ago, maybe the feeling was mutual? But no mother can have a Bad Man in her young sons life. And so the tragedy begins to play out.

He's my favourite anti hero yet! And how these two find a HEA is due to the compelling twists and turns of a well plotted and gripping story.
