Painted in gold, Jaslyn was born into a life of luxury with the world at her feet.
After the death of her father, his empire became hers and the princess became a queen. Painted in gold, Jaslyn was born into a life of luxury with the world at her feet.
Her fortune was sought after and deception and deceit had a ring around her finger.
But with the ring, came the accessories that money can’t buy.
At the hands of the new king, the empire began to crumble as Jaslyn’s world spiraled out of control.
Through the bars of her prison, she watched life pass her by.
Hope was fading quickly… until she met him.
Axel was the glimmer that she needed to survive.
From the wrong side of the tracks, Axel’s life was never easy.
He worked his way through the blood and sweat and went from rags to riches.
When you’re on top of the world, one mistake is all it takes to lose it all. And getting back up is always harder than the fall.
Getting his life back came with an offer he couldn’t refuse and he would pay the cost.
Jaslyn wasn’t part of the deal, but she was a temptation that he couldn’t escape.
She was his endgame and he would fight to the death to get to that finish line.
Together, they roll the dice and risk it all for love.
But when you gamble in the game of life or death, you pay a price.
And sometimes, that price could cost you everything.
My Review: 4 stars
This is my favorite book of this series so far.
Jaslyn is living a life she doesn’t want. With a man she doesn’t want to be with because she has no other option. He is holding something over her head and she can not leave. But she also knows that once he gets the chance, he will kill her and take everything.
Axel is given the opportunity of a life time. Work for a man and make a ton of money doing it. But what he didn’t expect was to want to save Jaslyn from the man he will be working for.
What will happen? Will he be able to save her? Or will he ruin his life and her life trying?
Axel comes off as a guy who doesn’t have about anything but himself but that is the farthest thing from the truth. He has a heart buried down inside him.
Jaslyn might seem weak for not getting out of her situation, but she is actually a very strong woman.
I really enjoyed this book and I am glad I did. I needed a good book in this series to keep me going.
My only complaint is it ends with a cliffhanger. UGHHHHHHH!!!! I did not know it would have a cliffhanger. I am not a fan of those. Especially if I don’t know they are coming.
I will defiantly be reading the second book.
