King of Hearts by Kay David
She loved him so much, she was willing to kill. He loved her so much, he was willing to die.
One night with bad-girl biker Jessie Delacort should have been enough for straight-laced cop Kingson Landry. But she got under his skin and hasn't let go. Discovering she's an undercover Texas ACES agent makes it even harder to resist her. But he must, because his past could kill Jessie just as easily as it has the other people he loves.
When Jessie Delacort rides into town on her Harley, the last thing she wants is to fall in love with another man who is hiding secrets too dark to reveal. But when they're forced to work together to bring down a powerful drug cartel, Jessie knows she's got it bad for the quiet cop with the haunted eyes.
When the cartel's vengeance-driven leader sets his sights on the two of them, King knows he'll do whatever it takes to keep Jessie safe. Even if that means giving up their chance of turning the white-hot attraction between them into love.

I have not read the first one but felt like this could be used as a standalone novel. Secrets will never stay hidden is what I always believe. And in this story that is for sure. Kingson has many of these and when they are slowly starting to come back up, what is a man suppose to do to keep these buried. The author described Jessie Delacort as a bad-girl biker and let me tell you in my mind I would definitely have to say she is correct except with a more descriptive word that I can’t use on here. Love kills I would almost say and these two are definitely in for a ride of their life because with Kingson’s past and Jessie’s love they will have to battle the war that is coming towards them. The author couldn’t have picked out two better characters than what they did for this book because I think these two balance each other out. While one wants to keep the other safe, the other wants to take the horns and run full speed ahead. I always love to see what authors do with uncover characters and to me the author did a great job with this book especially when they added the extra excitement in. Who wouldn’t want to take down the drug cartel? Lol  I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ~ Sue Ellen (Girlygirlbookreviews)

I really enjoyed this book and even though I haven’t read the first book I didn't feel like I was missing anything (although having read this book I want to go back and read the first one).  The history between King and Jessie added a delightful tension that kept you reading on to see where the case would take them both professionally and personally.  This is my fist read from Kay David but I will be on the lookout for more from this author. I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Solid Read - Lots of Action and Heat!.....Solid 3.5 stars! Kingston Landry is a good cop, but he has secrets from his past that are catching up with him. Jessie Delacort is an undercover agent and has been burned before by men with secrets. They spent one night together months ago, and now, after a series of crimes take place, they must work together to bring down a powerful drug cartel. Jessie can’t help the wild attraction she feels for King… “He’d had the whole cool Nordic look going with the icy blue eyes and tall, lean form, but the moment he’d put his hands on her, she’d realized his calm collectedness was a façade – inside, the man smoldered.” …but she needs to protect her heart from being broken again. “His secrets separated the two of them like a curtain she couldn’t see behind, though it seemed important that she do so.” That realization jarred her. The last thing she needed – the very last thing – was to fall for another cop with a hidden agenda.” King wants Jessie like he’s wanted no one before, but because of his past he knows he needs to keep her at a distance to keep her safe – something that he can’t seem to do… “He drifted, thinking about the pleasure Jessie had brought him and his out-of-control emotions that were turning into love. Either of these could mean her death if news of this night and the depth of his feeling for her got back to Ortega.” …but those secrets continue to drive them apart. “Sometimes secrets are necessary.” She spoke as if she knew what he was thinking “Secrets may be necessary in your life, but they aren’t in mine.” As Jessie and King work to bring Ortega and his drug cartel down, King must confront not only the demons from his past but also those that stand to threaten his future. I really enjoyed this book. Even though it was the second installment in the Smokin’ Aces series, I don’t think I missed anything by not having read book #1 – Texas Hold ‘Em. I loved the all the tension between King and Jessie, especially all the bantering and innuendos that got thrown around. Loved that the ACES were undercover as a motorcycle club and Jessie’s undercover persona was a bad-ass biker chick! There were a few plot points that I thought could have been further developed, but all in all this was a good read that kept me turning the pages. I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
