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.

I want to say some DIRTY WORDS… but can’t, or it won’t get posted on social media. So I will just say I am sad that this is over… and I am left hanging until the next story comes out.
I didn’t know this was a 1 of 2 stories when I signed up to read it. I love the author, and usually sign up for anything she writes. Usually she writes the stories to where you don’t have to read the first one…to be able to read the next. Even though they are a series, the can still be left as a standalone. Well… let me tell you, there is more to come, and you are not going to want to miss it.
This is a story of Avery… she lost her mother when she was younger and was raised by her father. He is a very strong and influential business man. Avery has a great boyfriend, saving herself for marriage and he is willing to wait. He loves her that much. Justin wants to get into politics when he graduates, and wants Avery by his side.
Then, Avery’s world comes tumbling down. Her father is accused of criminal acts, was found guilty, and then beaten to a thread of his life. Avery is desperate, trying to take care of her father, paying all the bills, and trying to keep her family home.
She does something desperate and goes to seek help, from the man who hates her father the most…Gabriel Miller.
There is a history between Gabriel and Avery, but Avery isn’t aware of it, she just knows there is a pull towards him.
This is a HOT sexy story, but leaves you wanting and needing more.
I could not put it down. The way it is written, leaves you panting and pissed all at the same time.
