His darkness drew me in.
A mystery with a past I wanted to solve.
He was cold, like ice, but set me on fire.
A heat I hadn’t felt in ages.
But when I saw his face, I burned…
She melted from my voice–shuddered from my touch.
But trembled from the memories
That my face brought back.
She wanted more…
Maybe even him.
I wasn’t the hand she counted on.
But I was what she was dealt…
A Wild Ace with no way to win.
Let me start with if you haven’t read Unblocked yet you are missing out. It was my first Marni Mann book and I was hooked. Wild Aces is the story of Brea, who we met and fell in love with in Unblocked as the BFF. I was so looking forward to reading her story.
I didn’t know what to expect at all. The blurb gives away very little about this book.
Just from reading the prologue, I was hooked. How could I not be? I wanted to know more!!! How? Why? Who?
Brea Bradley is so much fun and, as I already said, I loved her. But as this story unfolds, I also realized there is so much more to her than meets the eye. This girl has been through a lot and deserves happiness in her life.
Trapper Montgomery, his name already panty melting, is mysterious and cold. He has a certain darkness to him and has secrets that can destroy everyone around him.
“He was dark nights of phone sex and gambling, a gravelly voice that could make me wet from afar. “
These two were burning up the pages from the moment they met; even before their first date. Their connection and chemistry was hot and steamy even though they were states apart.
I loved the mystery element weaved into this story. So many twists and turns. Marni Mann kept me guessing till the end.
Having Frankie and Derek making appearances was an added bonus that made me smile. Especially at the end.
Wild Aces is a steamy, mystery-filled love story of two people who unexpectedly crossed paths and their lives were changed forever. Their meeting sets events in motion that will set them on a new path as they try to navigate through lies and secrets of the past.
“We were all fucked up in our own way, all victims of some kind of tragedy, all trying to make it out alive in a world that got darker by the day.”
Marni Mann is a very talented author and I’m looking forward reading more of her stories.
Wild Aces can be read as a standalone. It is a spin-off from her fantastic Unblocked Timber Towers series.
