Editorial Reviews


Praise for Wild Card
  • "Kelsie Rae has shown us a new side of her writing... and you won't be disappointed! I love when an author has the talent to successfully cross genres and switch up their styles, and Kelsie Rae has done just that with her new darker romance." -Katherine Hastings, Romance Author
  • "It's time for a new reign in the Romano family. Kingston Romano is hot, demanding and my new Book Boyfriend. You won't be disappointed, but you will definitely be left wanting more of these big players!" - Hayley Faiman, author of the Notorious Devils MC Series.
  • "I don't think Kelsie Rae can write anything but 5 star books in my opinion! Wild card is so crazy different than her sweetheart series, but OMG this book sucked me in from the first chapter. Wild card kept me turning pages and at the edge of my seat! Holy guacamole giant freaking cliff hanger!!!"-Goodreads Reviewer
  • "Kelsie Rae is quickly becoming one of my go-to, one-click authors. Though a departure from her other books, Kelsie Rae absolutely smashed this one out of the park! The storyline was incredible and the world building was fantastic! The chemistry between Ace and Kingston was electric and I cannot wait for Dark King to continue their story!"-Goodreads Reviewer
  • "Very rarely do I finish a book in less than a day but I finished this one super quick, I love Ace and Kingston. Kelsie Rae did not disappoint, this was such a good read, and I can't wait for the second book."-Goodreads Reviewer

From the Author

Here's an excerpt:Still frozen, I watch as he circles me like a shark and a single thought whispers through my mind. I'm about to get eaten alive. 
"Do you know who I am?" his low voice rumbles.
I hold my breath, but don't respond.
"Answer me, Acely Mezzerich." With a knowing smirk and a few choice words, he nearly knocks me on my ass.
Shit. Shit. Shit. 
"Surprised I know who you are?" he pushes.
Again, I'm silent.
How the hell does he know my real name? 
"Do you know why you're here?"
I keep my lips zipped.
"Answer me, Ace. I won't ask again." His authoritative tone does weird things to me, but I don't have time to assess them now, so I shove them in a little box deep down labeled: Don't Open.
"Yes," I whisper as I watch him continue to circle me. The guy is built like a freaking panther. I can see his muscles bunching beneath the tailored suit he wears like a second skin, making me anxious.
He pauses at my voice. With a quirked brow, he asks, "Yes, you're surprised I know who you are? Or yes, you know why you're here?"
Licking my chapped lips, I hold his gaze. "Both, I guess."
"And do you know how much money you've taken from me and my casino?"
I nearly grimace before schooling my features. If I had my notebook that's not-so-safely tucked away in my backpack by the Blackjack table upstairs, I'd be able to tell him exactlyhow much money I've taken from him. Even without it, I think I can still ballpark the number off the top of my head. That is, if I wanted to get backhanded. Again.
A cocky grin tugs at his mouth. "So you do know, I take it. Interesting."
Shit. Shit. Shit. 
"Do you know who am?" he continues his probing while slowly closing the circle he's been surrounding me with. The shrinking proximity is giving me heart palpitations and my hands start to sweat as they hang by my sides, bunching up the black material of my dress.
When I stay silent, he pushes a little harder with a sharp tongue and an icy stare. "Better start talking, Ace. I'd hate to see that pretty little face get any more bruised than it already is."
Part of me doesn't believe he'd actually hit me, but the other part doesn't want to risk any more damage.
Lifting my chin, I find the courage to answer. "I have an idea."
He laughs dryly. "You have an idea of how much you've stolen from me, or you have an idea of who I am?"
"Both." My lips tilt up on one side, and I find it ironic that any of this situation could possibly be found amusing to me.
"This is starting to feel an awful lot like deja vu, isn't it?" 
Again, I catch him reading my mind.
Rule #3: If something feels fishy, it probably is. Trust your instincts. The only problem? My instincts aren't telling me to run the other direction. The longer I'm in this room, the less threatened I'm beginning to feel. Which is weird. And foreign. Thanks to my past, I always feel the need to run.
