Jack (Vegas Kings, Book One) by McKenna James: Release Blitz + Excerpt + Double Review

Title: Jack
Series: Vegas Kings, Book One
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publish Date: May 1, 2021
Review Source: Elle Woods PR

Jack Stapleton and his friends rule Las Vegas. They’ve got more money than they know what to do with, and Jack can have any woman he wants­­­­—except Ellie.


Rejection. That’s what I get for trying to save a girl who obviously doesn’t want saving.

Paying off her father’s debt so she can stop taking off her clothes for other people? That was a no-brainer. Obviously, I hoped she’d fall victim to my irresistible charm. My selflessness.

But no.

I’ve offended her independent spirit, and instead of falling for me, she’s doing everything she can to avoid me. I should forget all about Ellie Masters, but I’m a sucker for her sassy smile and that fiery, luscious mouth.

I’m more than willing to take a gamble on this girl, but she’s made it clear I’m going to need more than luck to win her heart.


My momma raised me to believe that I don’t need a man. Except, apparently, I do.

And now that I owe a debt to a billionaire, I feel sick to my stomach.

It’s not like I’ll ever be able to pay him back.

The man is richer than God and hotter than the Devil. When he’s next to me, I just about melt.

The last thing I want is to fall for a man like that.

The problem is, I think I already have…

I really loved this story!! Jack & Ellie are amazing!!

Jack the playboy and Ellie the level-headed one. Her father dies and leaves her and her mom with major debt and not just any debt. It’s to some really bad people.

Jack is one of the Four Kings of Vegas. Just a title the paps gave them because they are all single players. No one expects them to ever settle down. One is now getting married and it’s making Jack think he’s ready. Especially if he found the right girl.

Ellie kinda slams into his life suddenly and he can’t get her out of his mind. He helps her in ways only a Knight in shining armor could do.

The characters, the story, and the writing are amazing!!!! I can’t wait for the next book. Jack's sister is off-limits to his friends. But, I think there’s something going on with her and one of the Kings. I just can’t wait!!

Highly Recommended!!!!

This is the first book in a new series - The Vegas Kings.

Here, you meet Jack and Ellie; who have an amazing connection from the start, even if she doesn't want to see or admit it. They have that fun-loving ‘I'm not going to give up until I get you’ kind of vibe. Ellie is a stubborn one, but Jack is a persistent one, with a playboy past and a heart of gold. However, will he be able to win out over Ellies stubbornness? I guess you will have to read to find out! This was a very good intro to the start of a new series. I can't wait to read the rest of them.

Available HERE on all platforms!

“Wait, please!” a feminine voice calls out as the doors begin to close.

I put my hand out, triggering the sensor, and they burst open to reveal a woman standing there. She isn’t just any woman, though. With long dark hair that hangs loosely around her shoulders and impossibly long legs that spill out from beneath the short white jacket she’s wearing, she’s quite possibly the most stunning woman I’ve ever seen. Her icy blue eyes flicker up and meet mine as she steps into the elevator.

“Thanks,” she murmurs, giving me a tight smile.

“What floor?” I ask.

“Top,” she replies, avoiding any further eye contact.

Amused, I press the button for the top floor again. That can only mean one thing—Ace ignored Asher’s request about the strippers. No doubt he’ll try to pin it on me.

“Fuck. I can't do this.”

I glance at the woman in surprise. I’m no expert when it comes to female emotions and shit, but she looks like she’s about to either burst into tears or start punching the elevator wall. Either way, something is obviously bothering her.

“Are you okay?” I ask.

Her head snaps up, and she looks at me like she forgot I was there. A faint glow of pink spreads across her cheeks as she quickly nods, then shakes her head.

“This is so not me,” she mutters, releasing a harsh laugh. “I tried, but I can’t do it.”

“Do you want to talk about it?” I offer. “I can be a pretty good listener.”

That part is a lie. Piper’s always telling me I can’t listen for shit, but honestly, I’m not sure what else to say to this girl.

“What the hell is talking going to do?” she snaps. “I’m sorry, I just…” She sighs. “No. There’s no way I’ll be able to go through with this.”

“Then don’t.”

If she is part of the entertainment that Ace hired—though she really doesn’t strike me as the type—I’m worried someone is making her do something she doesn’t want to do.

“It’s not that simple.” She mumbles so softly that I’m pretty sure she didn’t mean for me to hear it. “I need the money.”

“There are other ways to make money.”

“Only a rich person would say that with such ignorance,” she replies, her lips twitching.


But at least I got her to almost smile.
