Thanks for checking out the blog tour for Cash Plays, the third book in the Seven of Spades series!

About Cash Plays

In this game, the stakes are life or death.

The Seven of Spades is back with a vengeance—the vigilante serial killer has resumed their murderous crusade, eluding the police at every turn. But a bloodthirsty killer isn’t the only threat facing Sin City. A devious saboteur is wreaking havoc in Las Vegas’s criminal underworld, and the entire city seems to be barreling toward an all-out gang war.

As Detective Levi Abrams is pushed ever closer to his breaking point, his control over his dangerous rage slips further every day. His relationship with PI Dominic Russo should be a source of comfort, but Dominic is secretly locked in his own downward spiral, confronting a nightmare he can’t bear to reveal.

Las Vegas is floundering. Levi and Dominic’s bond is cracking along the seams. And the Seven of Spades is still playing to win. How many bad hands can Levi and Dominic survive before it’s game over?


Fuuuuuuuck, I love this series. I seriously cannot get enough!

Why-o-why do I think it's adorable that a serial killer is protecting Levi, even if it's from Dom? That's just twisted! 

One word to describe how I felt reading this book? Trepidation
For Dom, for Levi, Jessica Miller. Hell, for everyone in this story. 

First I felt bad for Dominic, then I was angry. Then I felt bad again, and then furious. Towards the end, the threat, then I felt joyous. Seriously, that's twisted lol! 

Levi's parents are adorable, we finally get to meet them in person in this book. I think that was one of my favorite parts, before everything went down the shitter. 

Levi's anger issues are also increasing, but it's kind of hot in the aftermath of their sparring. Dom's addictive tendencies are getting out of control, and it's really sad to see these two struggle. This isn't a happy ending, by any means. Yet, I found myself kind of charmed by SoS. 

I feel like with every book, the latest one is my favorite. I just want to shake my Kindle as I yell "WHO DAFUQ IS SOS!?!?!?" 
I'm dying to find out. Especially since things are escalating with their killings.

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?
