Virtual Book Tour: A Chip and a Chair (Seven of Spades Series #5) by Cordelia Kingsbridge (Review+Giveaway)

Thanks for checking out the blog tour for A Chip and a Chair, the conclusion to the Seven of Spades series!

Just as the Seven of Spades investigation is closing in, an act of terror devastates Las Vegas. In order to save the city they love, Levi and Dominic may need the help of the very killer they’ve been hunting…

About A Chip and a Chair

It's time to lay all the cards on the table.

Detective Levi Abrams and PI Dominic Russo are reunited and more committed to each other than ever, but they can’t truly move forward with their lives until the serial killer who’s been tormenting them is behind bars. When a secret burial site is discovered in the desert with the remains of the Seven of Spades’s earliest victims, that goal finally seems within reach.

But just as the net is tightening, the neo-Nazi militia Utopia launches their master plan with a devastating act of terror that changes the landscape of Las Vegas forever. As Levi and Dominic scramble to prevent the city’s destruction, they’re opposed by treacherous forces that propel them toward catastrophe. In the end, Levi’s fate may rest in the hands of the very killer he’s been hunting.

The race to save Sin City is on, and these players are going for broke. No matter how hopeless things seem, as long as they’re together and they’ve got a chip to play and a chair to sit in, they’re still in the game.

5+ Stars!!!

A Chip and a Chair is the fifth and last book in the Seven of Spades series and it can't be read as a standalone and frankly, why would you want to miss out on one of the most amazing romantic suspense series there is?

I've been waiting for this book what felt like forever, and it didn't disappoint. Ms. Kingsbridge wove a masterful tale from the first book until the last one and while I had strong suspicions over the Seven of Spades' identity, she threw me off the scent on the last book. When I started reading A Chip and a Chair, though, I wrote down two names on the note pad next to my computer and it was one of them, so yay, go me! LOL

I loved the conclusion to Levi and Dominic's story and I found Levi's reactions to finding out who could potentially be/actually was the Seven of Spades very realistic, same with Dominic's struggles with his gaming addiction. It made sense that it wouldn't just go away. The chemistry between them was out of this world and the love they felt for each other was undeniable. Of course, it didn't hurt that the sex scenes were hot enough to set my kindle on fire. LOL

This book was suspenseful, action-packed, fast-paced and absolutely enthralling. I can't say I couldn't put it down, because I had to take little breathers in between because I was so anxious with everything happening and my heart can only take so much, but it definitely was all I had been hoping for and more, so much more. This is a book and a series you want to pick up asap, you won't regret it.

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?
