Blurb from Goodreads :

"Sinfully sexy and darkly beautiful, The Pawn will play games with your heart and leave you craving more!" - Laura Kaye, New York Times bestselling author

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.

My virginity.

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. It's the first book in the brand new ENDGAME series.

"The Pawn is an emotionally charged roller coaster ride that will leave you breathless. From the start, the edgy and intense story will bring you to the edge of your seat and hold you there." - RT Book Reviews 


Chess is one of my favourite games, its depiction on the cover had got me interested in the first place. I loved the cover design, its so subtle yet talking something about the story. The blurb increased the curiosity and I had to get this one at the end. Well the 'NYT bestseller' tag really serves it well. Most books these days have such a title but I don't say the same for all.

The plot feels somewhat cliche but the as you read, you notice the subtle mystery and the chess influence going on in the story. The perfect balance of the story, narration and plot is what makes the book more interesting. The narration is really smooth and grabs your interest till the end. Most part that had me interested was the business magnet part. Although at times it would make you feel quite superficial and cliche but here it was quite balanced. The characters felt real and were gripping enough to have my attention. I hope the mysterious character of Gabriel Miller gets more attention in the next part of the series.

Coming to the point of discussion which most of you would be interested in knowing about. Yes its a mature read and is again well balanced in that segment as well. I won't say much about the book as it'd probably ruin the fun of reading. Let me tell you, just wait for the ending. It might grab your interested further as it ends on a cliffhanger.

If you love mind games, business magnets and sensual romance in your reads then this book is surely the one for you.
