Virtual Blog Tour Spotlight, Giveaway, & 4+* Review ~ Trick Roller by Cordelia Kingsbridge




Thanks for checking out the blog tour for Trick Roller, the second book in the Seven of Spades series!

We rejoin Levi and Dominic three months after the events of Kill Game. Although most of Las Vegas believes the Seven of Spades is dead, our two heroes know better. It’s only a matter of time until the killer resurfaces…

About Trick Roller

It’s the height of summer in Las Vegas. Everyone believes the serial killer Seven of Spades is dead—except Levi Abrams and Dominic Russo—and it’s back to business as usual. For Levi, that means investigating a suspicious overdose at the Mirage that looks like the work of a high-class call girl, while Dominic pursues a tough internship with a local private investigator. The one bright spot for both of them is their blossoming relationship.

But things aren’t so simple. Soon Levi is sucked into a dangerous web of secrets and lies, even as his obsession with the Seven of Spades intensifies. Dominic knows that Levi isn’t crazy. He knows the Seven of Spades is still out there, and he’ll do anything to prove it. But Dominic has his own demons to battle, and he may be fighting a losing war.

One thing is certain: the Seven of Spades holds all the cards. It won’t be long before they show their hand.




About the Seven of Spades Series

Las Vegas has never seen a serial killer like the Seven of Spades.

The self-styled vigilante is on a mission to cut down the wicked and treacherous, and Sin City has no shortage of targets for their bloody wrath. What happens in Vegas . . . ends with the Seven of Spades’s calling card on a grisly corpse.

Standing against the killer are Levi Abrams, a dedicated homicide detective locked in a constant struggle to restrain his own dark side, and bounty hunter Dominic Russo, a charming rogue with a heavy secret weighing on his shoulders.

The hunt for the Seven of Spades sends Levi and Dominic on a collision course, igniting a passionate relationship forged in conflict and sealed with blood. Together they’re stronger than the sum of their parts, but a wily, elusive serial killer isn’t the only threat that will strain their bond to the breaking point.

Ante up, because the Seven of Spades is all in. Are you?








Wow. 
This book has pretty much the same energy as the first book. We all know the truth, along with Levi. It almost reminds me of in Harry Potter, how the minister of magic was in denial of Voldemort's return. No one wanted to believe he was alive and look at that shit show it created...

Levi and Dominic are truly becoming one of my absolute favorite couples. Dominic is this huge teddy bear and Levi is a bit prickly. He's more serious and subdued where Dominic is social and even tempered, they make a really nice balance. (One could almost say Like Vic and Jake?) The way their relationship is opening up just seems so natural and light. Of course I still feel bad for Stanton, but only briefly, because Dominic rocks.

"I'm not looking for a nice guy, Levi. I want a good guy. That's way more important."

Levi is investigating a tourists' murder, which somehow leaks into Dominic's first investigation as a PI in training.

What I love about Cordelia is, I never get it right. Especially this one, this guy seemed to have a lot of enemies, so there are many suspects to weed through. I think that's part of the fun in this book. On top of that he's still investigating the Seven of Spades and trying to get a better feel for the new DA, all while budding a new relationship, saving a girl from getting thrown back with her horrible foster dad, being suspended and an upcoming trial against Mr. Barton.

Remember the guy who killed his wife and was trying to pin it on the SoS? Well, he's made some people unhappy and tried to tarnish Levi's character and pin his sloppy job on the wrong person (people?)

This book was filled with action, mystery, and some very inventive scenes that may leave you pink in the cheeks and it ends in a bang.
I cannot wait for more, and from what I see, there's definitely going to be 5 books!!


4.75* and my favorite read so far this year!
