Ok so where do I start???? Let me just say this book made me wanna slap my mama! Twice! Mrs. Groom just has a way with her characters that makes you believe she is one of the characters in her book. I finished this book in about 3 hrs. That's how good it kept me hooked.

Ok so this book picks up where Holding Aces left off with Ari alone in the room with Jonny. Out of the 2 this is probably my favorite. There is just so much more going on. Ari is still coming terms with what happened but doesn't let it rule her life in this book. She takes more chances and we really get to see how she "rises from ashes" if you will. And Denham? Oh sweet baby jesus. I just love him! He takes what he wants, and what he wants is Ari and he will have her. Denham is so sweet and caring but total Alpha male when he needs to be without being all possessive and you just wish you could have your own Denham.

So in this book, the main focus Jonny and the steps Denham takes to protect Ari whether she likes it or not. We see more of Amy (grade A b**ch), We meet Mrs. King and let me just say I love her, Aaron makes a surprising visit and finally Jonny. Jonny made me wanna go get ax and chop him to little bitty bits!! ok insane moment over, sorry lol. Anywho, Ari stays strong thru everything going on even though she just wants to run away and hide. But she stays bc of Denham and she's just simply tired. The ending just made me want to cry and do a happy dance all at the same time. I won't say much more bc I don't wanna ruin the book but I will say you won't regret buying this book! I hope Spike and Lottie get to have their own book after all that's happened bc they deserve it! Oh and I hope Tara gets one too!

I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Could this series get any hotter? I have to say I think it just might. When I got the opportunity to read Holding Aces I was a little apprehensive. Books staged around Vegas just didn't appeal to me. Nikki changes my view on that in just a few paragraphs. High Stakes has just pushed me over the edge. You know the old saying never judge a book by its cover; well I guess that stands true to never judge it by its settings!

If you looking for a book that is full of hot encounters, lots of suspense and mystery, you will find just that and more with High Stakes. I have fallen in love with this series again. Dehman is that hot alpha male that just can't seem to say no to Arianna. He is fierce in protecting what he hold dear. Arianna is trying to find herself after living most of her adult life being told what she will do and how she will do it. She is fighting hard to gain herself back.

As we all know Nikki will not just let things run smooth with the Kings and their life's which makes for a very powerful read.

I highly recommend this series!

Eventually i managed to get my hands on my most anticipated book of the year. It’s safe to say with the way Nikki left Holding Aces I was desperate for High Stakes. We left Arianna in a life threatening situation and although I couldn’t wait to dive in I was also apprehensive as to where Nikki would take these characters, it’s safe to say the first few chapters did not go the way I expected.

What I love about this book is the way the characters drag you in, you can’t help but fall under their spell. Arianna is damaged and following her past it’s heartwarming to see how far she’s come since that first chapter in Holding Aces. Having said that she doesn’t overcome old wounds easily and at times I was frustrated with her and I just wanted her to demand more for herself. There is a particular shower scene that broke my heart and i just wanted to jump inside the book and hug her.

As for Denham, well he is hot as ever and wow did that bath scene do things to me, it’s safe to say i added bubble bath to the shopping list that week! He remains the sexy, caring protector we fell in love with in Aces only this time we learn more about his background and I defy you not to fall harder for him.

Then we have secondary characters, Spike, Lottie, Tara and Jack and in all honesty I don’t think calling them ‘secondary characters’ does them justice as they play such an integral part in Ari and Denham’s story but thats what they are so i’ll just have to get over my massive Lottie crush and deal with it! The book wouldn’t be the same without Lottie’s straight talking ways and Spikes playful nature. The fact I adored these characters as much as the main characters is testament to the Nikki’s writing.

The book flows perfectly, I love the way we see the relationships grow.

Since I'm a huge fan of book 1. This was an automatic must buy and on top of my long TBR list. Let me tell you the King did NOT disappoint. Book 1 kept me hanging, which felt like forever.... From page 1 of this second book I was hooked back in again. Ari and Denhems story made me put my life on hold to find out what happens next. Right to the very last page I was hanging on ever word! A must read. 5/5 stars!

I absolutely LOVED this book. It was even better than Holding Aces (which I also loved). The author does an amazing job of keeping the suspense, while incorporating an amazing love story. I do not know what Nikki Groom has in the works for her next novel, but I am looking forward to reading it.
