Overview

What she’s wanted…

Sydney Warren is a successful painter of erotic landscapes—just the artful fantasies of a woman whose own life has been stripped of passion. Though she has stayed loyal to her boyfriend, Max, he’s unable to ignite the sparks they once shared, leaving Sydney wanting. Then comes the stranger, a work of art himself, and everything changes.

is what she’s getting…

With chestnut hair, mesmerizing green eyes, and the perfect body, Colm Hennessy is every woman’s fantasy. He too is aroused, and more intrigued by the beautiful artist than he expected to be—because it wasn’t supposed to happen this way. For there’s something about Colm that Sydney doesn’t know...

in the ultimate game of control.

Colm is only pretending to be a model. He’s been hired by Max to seduce her—a twisted scheme to test her fidelity. But Max never imagined that Colm would feel something real. As Sydney and Colm’s intimacy grows, as passions neither expected are unleashed, the stakes in a cruel game are raised—and desire isn’t the only thing set to spiral out of control.

    3.5 Stars ~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Cover

    3.5 Stars
    ~Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

    A little bit gritty and emotional.” ~Under the Covers

    GAMES PEOPLE PLAY is a bit different than something I would normally pick up. Starting with the fact the hero is a male prostitute. Colm has been through hell in his life and that hell has put him in a place where he’s shut down his emotions and sold his body to get money he desperately needed for his sister. He is broken and damaged with plenty of skeletons in his closet. But they usually don’t come to the surface.

    Except when he takes on the job of seducing Sydney Warren. She’s an artist with a flair for sexual, who has been with her partner, a renowned arts dealer, for a long time. Part of that time after he was in an accident that left him in a wheelchair. He wants to test Sydney by putting a good looking man in her path who will attempt to seduce her to see if she caves. If she doesn’t, the test passed and he will marry her.

    Sydney was a bit of a lost soul to me. She’s not entirely happy with her relationship but she feels she can’t seek elsewhere what she needs to feel complete. She also seems to feel that she’s sold out on her art and done what sells instead of what’s in her heart.

    When Sydney and Colm start spending time together as he’s modeling for her both their walls come down.

    It was an interesting read that wasn’t at all what I would’ve expected but turned out to be enjoyable. A little bit gritty and emotional. I had some issues with certain parts and the pacing could’ve used a bit more speed but the relationship between Colm and Sydney developed nicely. I did feel a bit rushed in the end, looking for a resolution that I’m not sure I was ready to have.
