~The key to a killer poker face is to strip your soul of all emotion and show only what you purposefully want the other person to see. And trust me-I'm the lead singer in the band of No Emotion.~ Flirty fun, deception, drama drama sex, lies, games, sex, drama drama drama, poker... Welcome to Palm South. This book has all the ingredients for a fantastic romance- the kind I readily sink my claws into. The storyline was wickedly unique-who would've thought poker could be so sexy? There is a ton of fabulous characters, the paced flowed rapidly-constantly evolving, changing, twisting-it made my head spin as I was furiously flipping through the pages. I have to be careful with what I say here because there were so many lies, so much deception and games being played, that I had a hard time seeing anyone coming out of this in one piece. There is always something going on and while I understood where most everyone was coming from, I was afraid for the hearts that were being toyed with. This was not a sunshine and flowers read, Ms. Steiner strings us along on such an emotional high that it took me some time to come down and I loved every freakin minute of it. I highly recommend this to anyone who like a little angst with their read and some tears with their romance. But don't fret, even with all the drama and intense emotions flying around there was still plenty of melt-your-panties sexy in here. Kandi Steiner has slammed her way onto my One-Click-Addiction List one bluff, blush and sob at a time with this one and I cannot wait to see what she brings us next.
“I don't know where we go from here, Kip. I don't know if we can come back from this. We lied. Both of us. We played games and even though all the cards are on the table now, I don't know if this is a game we can finish playing and still survive.”
