Rule #5: Don’t allow distractions. They’ll only break you.
In the blink of an eye, Kingston Romano’s entire world has fallen apart. His sister is in the hands of a rival mafia family, and his only hope of getting her back is by making a wager that includes the mysterious Acely Mezzerich.
Unfortunately for King, his feelings for Ace only escalate the longer he’s around her, muddling his conscience as well as his arrangement with the enemy. And if has any hope of saving his sister and keeping Ace, he needs to execute it perfectly.
As the pieces start to fall, he’ll have to learn who he can trust and who needs to be eliminated before it’s too late.

BlueSeals’s review of Dark King
Kelsie Rae has officially entered the dark side with her second book in the Advantage Play Series – Dark King by putting her own sweet spin on life in the mafia. She has also tackled one of our nation’s most widespread topics – human trafficking. Grab your whiskey and a tissue (you will need it). Come in my office and let’s have a chat about Kelsie Rae’s Dark King (read that using your best Godfather voice).
Wild Card left me on the edge of my seat with the kidnapping of Kingston’s sister Regina. In order to get his sister back, Kingston will have to win her in Burlone’s poker tournament. What’s the catch? Kingston’s buy-in is Ace.
Kingston has a special set of skills that involve getting information from people who don’t’ want to talk. Being an ace poker player is not one of them. He can hold his own when playing with the family but he needs to be the best. Lucky for him, Ace has already beaten Burlone at his own game once. She has studied his tactics for years and hates him enough to sacrifice herself to get Regina back from that monster.
Only Kelsie could make us fall in love with a mafia boss who’s special set of skills involve torture. Kingston, the Dark King, may rule the Romano family business ruthlessly but behind closed doors, he rules Ace with tender, loving touches. There are so many stories to tell from this wonderfully created set of characters. I really hope that there are more books to come. With my whiskey tumbler and tissues in hand, I give Dark King 5 out of 5 propellers!

About the Author
Kelsie is a sucker for a love story with all the feels and enjoys a solid chick flick, too. When she’s not chasing words for her next book, you will probably find her reading or, more likely, playing with her three small children who love to drive her crazy. She adores chocolate, photography, and baking. And now that she’s actively pursuing her writing dreams, she’s set her sights on someday finding the self-discipline to not eat an entire batch of cookies in one sitting.
