Wow wow wow loved this one .. This is the second book int the Vegas Underground series and it can be read as a stand alone it was so easy to follow even though there are some characters from the first book that show up in this one (but you don’t lose track of the storyline as you wonder what their background story is.) I do enjoy Mafia bad boys but don’t really read too many of them so this one was quite a joy, and I quite like the way Renee writes hers with those little twists that pop up to keep the suspense going so deal me in for more...
I don't really consider myself a fan of the Mafia bad boy genre. I just don't understand the appeal, and to be honest, most of the books I've read that fall into this category just reinforce my dislike. However, I quite enjoyed this book. It is part of the Vegas Underground series, and each book is completely standalone, even though they link together through an interconnected story. This is the story of Stefano & Corey. On the surface, Stefano is a bad guy from a Mafia family. Corey is the cousin of Sondra (of King of Hearts) and is the more streetwise of the two. This story shows that sometimes, the bad guys are good, and the good guys are bad.
4.5 bambina stars! Renee Rose has aced it with Jack of Spades! An action packed, smuttilicious story that was chock full of delicious spanky scenes and yet also gave me all the FEELS, especially in those final chapters! I loved how UBER ALPHA Stefano was !! He was overly protective and territorial over Corey which made me swooon!! This story had the perfect balance of a sexy romance with a little mafia side story thrown in. I can’t wait for the next book in this series!
I’ve given this book 4 stars purely because I wanted maybe 1-2 additional chapters just to wrap up something. No spoilers ☺️ Jack of Spades is the 1st Renee Rose book I’ve read. I was really impressed with her writing style and the flow of the book. I’ll definitely be reading the next addition Ace of Spades, and will be going back to read the previous books in Vegas Underground Series.
I love a good mafia story and no one does it better than Renee. I know never to start one of her books until I have free time to immerse myself A great ,book really enjoyed the characters and witty dialogue
