Our Review

“Everybody has a dark side…it’s okay to take that side out for a drive every now and then. Healthy adults have this crazy thing called impulse control that tells them when and where to do that. It’s what separates us from psychotic serial killers. And teenagers.”

*Thump….thump…..thump* we’re sure you can hear the sound of our hearts beating wildly after finishing Cash Plays! What an exhilarating, addictive and compelling read! The Seven of Spades is readily becoming one of our favourite series delivering a heady mix of suspense, intrigue, mystery, romance and intense emotion, not to mention an absorbing, enthralling and very clever storyline brilliantly brought to life by uber talented Cordelia Kingsbridge. This author sure knows how to grab our attention, ensuring we remain riveted from start to finish! This has been a 5 stars series so far!

“…there have to be boundaries. There have to be lines the good guys won’t cross no matter what. Otherwise, what’s stopping us from becoming monsters ourselves.”

We’re now at book three and Cordelia Kingsbridge seems to delight in taking us right to the edge, toying with us in the most delicious way possible by spiking our adrenaline to stratospheric levels! We’re consumed by the Seven of Spades series, absolutely fascinated with the Seven of Spade’s serial killer, constantly second guessing ourselves as to whom it may be! Whilst we may have many theories as to their identity, we’re no closer to solving this puzzle and love that we’re continually being tested, relishing being treated to teasing morsels and red herrings this far into this series!

There’s a fine line between bravery and carelessness, and Dominic and Levi constantly straddle these line making decisions that put their relationship and their lives on the line. These guys own our hearts. The dynamic between them, their friends and their families feel so real, never forced.

“Levi Abrams is damaged goods.”
“So am I.”

From the police department bullpen to the neon lights of Vegas, to the seedy underground, loyalties are tested, suspicions are cast as Cordelia Kingsbridge introduces us to a raft of characters and continues a plot that always moves forward. Nothing is added to simply fill the pages. Every word contributes to the overall heart stopping pull of the story; the dialogue feels real, the dramatic effect pushes us to our limits, and the hypnotic and brilliant prose leaves us breathless.

The beautiful relationship between Levi and Dominic is tested, at times with heartbreaking results, yet the droll mirth and endearments between these two powerful characters, bring the biggest smiles to our faces. We love both these characters. They each have baggage, each tests their own, and each other’s limits, yet underneath is a true, passionate and heartfelt love. The sex, whilst extremely hot and physical, doesn’t overwhelm the emotion, instead intensifying every feeling.

We’re so incredibly invested in this story, our knuckles white as we grip our Kindles. The psychological aspect is potent, and as other crimes are introduced in each book, the Seven of Spaces serial killer is always in the background, always provoking and providing a menacing atmosphere throughout; just waiting to strike. It’s knife-edge stuff people, and we can’t get enough!

“I can’t invite that kind of darkness inside myself. I don’t know what it would do to me, and I can’t risk finding out…”

The ending!! OMG! The ending! It was powerful beyond explanation and left us in a state of anticipation and eagerness for the next book! We know that when this series is complete, we’ll be devouring every book –  in its entirety in one go. Such is the pull of the story and its characters.

Synopsis

The Seven of Spades is back with a vengeance—the vigilante serial killer has resumed their murderous crusade, eluding the police at every turn. But a bloodthirsty killer isn’t the only threat facing Sin City. A devious saboteur is wreaking havoc in Las Vegas’s criminal underworld, and the entire city seems to be barreling toward an all-out gang war.

As Detective Levi Abrams is pushed ever closer to his breaking point, his control over his dangerous rage slips further every day. His relationship with PI Dominic Russo should be a source of comfort, but Dominic is secretly locked in his own downward spiral, confronting a nightmare he can’t bear to reveal.

Las Vegas is floundering. Levi and Dominic’s bond is cracking along the seams. And the Seven of Spades is still playing to win. How many bad hands can Levi and Dominic survive before it’s game over?
