His darkness drew me in.
A mystery with a past I wanted to solve.
He was cold, like ice, but set me on fire.
A heat I hadn’t felt in ages.
But when I saw his face, I burned…
She melted from my voice–shuddered from my touch.
But trembled from the memories
That my face brought back.
She wanted more…
Maybe even him.
I wasn’t the hand she counted on.
But I was what she was dealt…
A Wild Ace with no way to win.
My first foray into Marni Mann’s writing was reading Unblocked…seriously fantastic! More on that another time. Wild Aces was an intense story to be sure. Trapper and Brea are an AMAZING couple! They have both been through hell, albeit very different kids. Trapper grew up in hell and has really done something with himself – even though it’s not a traditional success story. He dedicated his life to keeping others from experiencing what he did and he is a special kind of hero.
Brea lost the love of her life – or so she thought. Hints of Brea’s past are given in Unblocked, but I was beyond thrilled to hear her entire storyline! She is such an amazing person and very real. I found myself making a deep connection with her because she reminds me so much of a close friend.
I can pretty well guarantee you have never read a story quite like this one and you will not be sorry you picked it up!
