Driving the narrative — and telling the story in the first-person — is Kat, a young woman who makes her living as a professional poker player. Kat thinks she has the world all figured out until a young boy unexpectedly enters her life. Caring for him and meeting his father complicates Kat’s life in ways she never imagined.
Meanwhile, she has everything riding in a Las Vegas poker showdown for high stakes. The reader is along for the ride to find out how it all plays out.
Epic Game is a quick and fun read.
