Reese's Review:I received an ARC of The Lover’s Game for an honest review.
Jett and Brooke have come a long way since their first encounter in Surrender Your Love. Now they’re spending a hot weekend together in a hotel alone. Except the weekend doesn’t go as planned and Jett needs to leave for work and Brooke’s e-mail has been broken into. Jett’s hiding things from Brooke and considering their past together Brooke doesn’t know if she can trust him. After some strange encounters and some snooping Brooke knows something’s up and she’s not about to have her heart broken by the same man twice.
The Lover’s Game starts off hot where Brooke meets her hot “stranger” in a hotel to get picked up. It’s kind of cute and romantic. This story picks up almost immediately after Treasure Your Love.
P.S.: If you haven’t heard or read the Surrender Your Love Trilogy yet please shield your eyes away from this review and escort yourself from the premises.
Back to the review Brooke is definitely a great character and I am super excited to continue reading about her journey. I have to say she irritated me a wee bit when she just decides to ignore her bills and then passes up an opportunity to help herself out of a bad situation. It was really aggravating and I really hope she gets her crap together for the upcoming book.
Jett is hiding a whole lot of stuff and some of his past is revealed in this and I was so shocked. All I can think is “what an a** hole”. I’m definitely leaning towards the he has something evil planned and am in the boat with Brooke on not trusting him.
This story is definitely fantastic and I am super excited to get to read the next installment very soon. I know it will be stellar!!! Eep! J.C. Reed is definitely an amazing writing whom I enjoy all of her books. She definitely has a way with words!
