Live. Breath. And Believe—to Rena Novo there’s nothing better than being a part of the most popular virtual-reality game—EverLife…until she’s given a Quest to evict her best friend from the society she’s come to love. If she completes the job—she’ll rise to the top of the leaderboard, but a sexy recruit makes her question what’s really going on. He also stirs a different kind of passion within her that’s becoming hard to ignore.



Hunting for his missing sister, investigative reporter Gage Stone goes undercover in the gaming cult that’s taken over his sister’s life. But his biggest obstacle is his sizzling attraction to Rena, the extremely hot gamer assigned as his trainer. As their attraction builds, Gage realizes his sister isn’t the only one he can’t leave without. Now he must convince Rena that hundreds of people’s lives are at stake… before she turns him in and gets them all killed.

      Drunk and without hope, newly turned twenty-one year old Rena

      Drunk and without hope, newly turned twenty-one year old Rena Novo has
    decided she's had enough and is about to step in front of a speeding eighteen
    wheeler. Saved from her folly, Rena is brought into the society of Everlife. A new
    concept in interactive gaming, where employees live, work and are totally
    immersed in the Everlife philosophy. Assigned to gaming lounges, "Lifers" move
    up the status ladder by a point system. They live on site, they eat and play on
    site, and they choose who they earn sex points with on site. Rena is a shining
    star in Everlife and is a fervent believer in their philosophy. She will do whatever
    it takes to protect her new family.

      Gage Stone is an investigative reporter looking for his missing younger sister.
    She is his only family and he fears she has been sucked in by Everlife's
    questionable organization. Determined to find her, he goes undercover as an
    Everlife new recruit. His assigned mentor, Rena could be an invaluable resource
    but she has not only drank the Kool-Aid, she showers in it every morning. 

     Let me just say that I don't know what I expected from this book, but it wasn't
    what I got . When I first met Rena, my first reaction was "Oh no, another fidiot
    heroine". As I read on, I discovered some sterling characteristics though. On the
    surface, she is fearless, strong, smart and a leader. On the downside, she also
    seemed to easily swallow whatever tripe her Everlife gurus threw at her. It was
    no less than mindless worship. I understand she felt that she had found the
    home, purpose, and family she so desperately needed, however it was very
    difficult not to wish she had indeed stepped in front of the semi. She ignores her
    inner voice that says "Hey, get a clue!" But wait, don't runaway yet, it gets
    waaaaay better. 

     Enter my boy, Gage. Yaaaay, a person with working brain cells!! (Spoiler hint)
    That statement has MAJOR implications. Instantly attracted to Rena, he is
    frustrated by her refusal to see the cancer in the upper echelons of Everlife. He
    perseveres however because he is just that awesome. I loved Gage.

    Now I know you must be thinking, "Wow, she does not like this book.". Au contraire,
    mon ami. I was enthralled by this book, and let me tell you it absolutely shocked
    me to my toes. It is an enormous testament to Dawn Atkins' talent as a writer.
    She not only answered every qualm and question that I had, but she did it in
    such a compelling way that I had finished the book and become an avid fan
    before I realized it. I was obsessed with finding out how Rena could prove my
    initial impression as dead wrong. The story was a wonderful thriller with twist,
    turns, surprises, heartbreak, and redemption. There is a thread of romance, but
    the actual story is the thing. The evolution of Rena and Gage as a couple and as
    individuals turned out to be a wonderful reading experience. Just goes to show
    that first impressions can be seriously flawed and for that I thank you Ms. Atkins,
     for the life lesson and the absolutely enjoyable read.

    I wasn¿t sure what to expect from Two Can Play, for one thing ho

    I wasn’t sure what to expect from Two Can Play, for one thing how can you mix romance and a cult?  I will say I was pleasantly surprised.  Dawn Atkins has created a very interesting world that I could easily see in a Sci-Fi book.  I would love to read some more books by this author because I do feel this was very well written, but in the end though I feel this was aimed for a younger crowd despite some of the more intimate scenes.  
    I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
