Official Blurb:

Luke Price and Violet Hayes haven’t seen each other in a couple of months, not since they discovered Luke’s mother’s connection to Violet’s parent’s murders. But when Luke gets into some gambling trouble with the wrong people, destiny decides to throw the two of them together and they head out to Vegas to try and settle Luke’s debt.

As Violet spends time with Luke, she becomes torn on whether she should be with him. She definitely can’t deny that her life is better when she’s with Luke and she starts to wonder if going back to Preston was a mistake.

Things seem to be going well as Violet opens up more to Luke, but then she gets a call from the detective, not only to give an update on Mira Price and the case, but to give information about some threatening texts she’s been getting. The information is not only shocking, but makes Violet question what kind of people her parents really where and whether she’ll be able to trust anyone ever again.

Review:



Violet’s life has spiraled even more out of control. She’s living in an abusive situation with drug dealer/foster “father” Preston.  Meanwhile, Luke is in no better shape. He’s heavily drinking and gambling himself into serious trouble with the back alley people you never want to meet. When they have a chance re-uniting at an underground poker game, their lives are once again drawn together in the worst of circumstances.

Just when I thought the first Violet and Luke book left me speechless, this book’s explosive reveal and cliff hanger left me in shock and awe. Sorensen’s ability to tie in character backstories and past events is almost mystical. When the dots are all connected, you can’t help but wonder what was the motives behind the people in Violet and Luke’s life. Violet and Luke try so hard to steer clear of each other, but it’s as if fate draws them back together in their darkest moments. They save each when they’re together and destroy their own worlds apart.  You’ll be ready to dive into the next Violet and Luke book with such a ferocity that you will be left with a major book hangover.
