She’s the beautiful fiery angel.
You look at her and you forget… everything.
Past, present and future. You just forget.
I’ve been called many things in my life.
Marine, agent, hacker, thief, killer…
Now I’m a fraud.
I’m here for one single reason – to steal from her father, the Vegas Mafia King.
Eliminate him if I need to.
Greedy mobster…he got caught up in something above him and dragged her in too.
I dropped my guard and got lost in her.
Mind, body, and soul.
The angel drew me in at hello.
With a body made for serious sinning, Jia Marchesi reminded me of what I wanted and never had.
I want her to be mine.
But… the more I dig the more secrets I find.
The more I realize what’s going on is above me too.
Danger and death are on the horizon.
Sorry, Bellezza. You got dealt a cruel hand.
I should have stayed away from you…
You were my big mistake. I was always a threat.
In the end, there’s no way this will end well.
Not for me
Nor for you.

Being with her or being without her.
Both seemed to carry its own weight of grief.
Maybe it would have been better to just leave, get out of her life and she’d never see me again.
I’d shared several moments with this woman I shouldn’t have had.
She’d looked desperate to me. I just didn’t know at the time what the desperate was.
The desperation was to be saved.
People like that were best left alone if you couldn’t help them.
Not only had I potentially blown the mission, but I’d made her life worse just for being with her.
Now all hell was breaking loose.
My enemy has returned and he knows she’s my weakness.
It’s only a matter of time before heads will roll.
Please note Tease of Spades is book 2 in the Game of Love series. This book ends with a Cliffhanger. Pretty please read the books in order for your enjoyment of this series. Xander and Jia’s story continues in Queen of his Heart.
