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.

Narrators made the book

My two eye rolling moments were (1) The fact that he was a member of the most powerful black Vegas family, handsome, single, she grew up in Vegas, and she didn't recognize him throughout their entire first encounter? And (2) she was beautiful, had the gorgeous red locks, worked in his bar for months, and he never saw her before? C'mon man! Om the other hand, Jakobi and Wesleigh are among the very BEST at narrating urban erotic fiction.

One the best

I enjoyed the storyline and how “thuggish” & “gansta” the main characters are. Ready for the sequel. This author does it with the right pace and story development that raises the bar in this genre. Once again the narrators are my favorites and bring the characters to life. I read almost everything that they do.

Whew...drink please (sparkling grape juice though)

One of my new favorite authors and of course my favorite narrating duo!!! I absolutely love this book. It's so juicy and detailed. I kept wanting to stop listening but I needed to know what would happen next. This played out in an entire motion picture in my head!!! My heart rate is still trying to return to normal.

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.
