Releasing June 27, 2017
Montlake Romance


In the second novel in acclaimed author Sandra Owens’s Aces & Eights series, passions—and tempers—flare as one star-crossed couple gets a second chance at love.

Covert FBI agent Court Gentry loves his brothers, his job, and his Harley-Davidson. Once he loved a girl, too, but when she broke his heart, he put his emotions on lockdown…until she crosses his path again.

On vacation six years ago, free-spirited Lauren Montgomery fell hard for Court Gentry. She returned home happier than ever, only to descend into a spiral of abuse by her ex-husband, Stephan. When Stephan threatened to kill any man who touched her, Lauren cut Court from her life—but not from her heart.

When Lauren and Court reunite after her friend marries his brother, Court guards himself against the person who made him feel such intense passion and pain. Except the undeniable spark between them is impossible to contain and heating up fast. Six years ago, it was love. Now, it’s just lust. Keeping it merely physical is a foolproof plan…right?

When Stephan is released from prison, Lauren can’t outrun her past anymore, and Court vows to protect her. But with Lauren in imminent danger, Court must question his heart and risk his life to save the woman he never stopped loving.


My Review



My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love second chance romances and this one was good. King of Clubs is a well written story, with some good plot twists, lots of action and excellent pace.

I not only liked both main characters but they felt normal and believable as people. The chemistry between them was so hot and the connection very real. Court was a bit of an a$$ when he first learnt the truth regarding Lauren's disappearance 6 years ago but thankfully, once he got over himself, Court grew to understand and accept her choice.

With his alpha male 'bada$$ness' and also his hidden gentle side Court was one smoking hot hero. Lauren wasn't a pushover either, she stood her ground when necessary and made her own choices.

The story really held my interest and whilst some aspects were out of the usual (hacking, FBI agent etc) they were within the realms of possibility. The writing was of a good standard, the plot flowed well and the story was very easy to read. I enjoyed the book enough that I have now bought the first book in the series.
