The price of survival…
Gabriel Miller swept into my life like a storm. He tore down my father with cold retribution, leaving him penniless in a hospital bed. I quit my private all-girl’s college to take care of the only family I have left.
There’s one way to save our house, one thing I have left of value.
A forbidden auction…
Gabriel appears at every turn. He seems to take pleasure in watching me fall. Other times he’s the only kindness in a brutal underworld.
Except he’s playing a deeper game than I know. Every move brings us together, every secret rips us apart. And when the final piece is played, only one of us can be left standing.
THE PAWN is a full-length contemporary novel from New York Times bestselling author Skye Warren about revenge and seduction in the game of love.
**Review From Liz**
Wow. Just wow. This book had me from the start and I could not put it down. What would cause a woman to sell her virginity? She would have to literally have hit rock bottom, right?
Avery James had it all. She lived a life of privilege. Her needs and wants met at every turn. Her father loved and doted on her. Nothing could ever go wrong, until it so badly did. Now she has nothing left, they lost everything, but her father needs her more than ever. What does she have left of worth? Her virginity. So, she decides to auction it to help her father.
Gabriel Miller is a man of means and always gets what he wants. He plays to win and his game is a very dark one. When he wins the auction, he owns Avery for a month and plans to enjoy every minute she is his. But what are his real intentions? What secrets does he hide? There is so much of Gabriel we just do not know.
I was so intrigued with the fight for control and all the twists and turns in this story. The games being played, the secrets, fear and heartbreak are felt every step of the way. I repeatedly held my breath waiting to see what would happen next.
The chemistry between Gabriel and Avery was off the charts. And even though Avery was on the naïve side, she could hold her own against him at times. And Gabriel. What can you say about him? He is the type of character you love…and hate.
This book was wonderfully written with surprises along the way that had me captivated. This dark romance was erotic and addicting. Just when you think you know what is happening, the author leaves you reeling. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
I give The Pawn by Skye Warren 5-stars!
