Charlie Hardie has lived the hard life and was now drinking himself in oblivion one house sitting job at a time. He was a reliable source to stay put, water your plants, and make sure no one breaks into your house. Therefore, what a surprise for Charlie when he arrives at his latest job someone has gotten there before him who knows how to throw a microphone stand. The intruder turns out to be actress, Lane Madden who swears "The Accident People" are after her and if they find her, she is dead, again. They have tried to kill her already and staying out of sight was her main objective that became impossible when Charlie dropped into her life, literally. He is not sure what parts he believes and which are just good acting but the one thing he knows for sure is the actress is a very good liar and her story may add up but it is not straight up. Charlie finds "they" have every high power weapon, every spy trick known to every side of the game and no issues with killing anyone that blocks their objective of eliminating that seen as a problem. However, Charlie is a fighter and he is not going down without taking out as many of them as he can if only he can survive. There are multiple attacks on him and Lane, be able to crawl up the side of a canyon and convince the police that he is not a bad guy just a man with a questionable past and shaky future. Wow is an understatement for this book. The action starts on the first page and never stops during one single line. When you get to the last line, you know you are pre-ordering the next book and the one after that today.

Meet Charlie Hardie, former cop, resident bada$$, coming to housesit in a neighborhood near you. He gets drunk and watches old movies as often as Congress runs a budget deficit, before he meets Lane Madden, a chick with more attitude and gumption and fighting ability than the top UFC contender, and gets tossed in the middle of the ring with a group of coldblooded killers. Lane’s tough, and she’s not about to take attitude from anyone, including a group of hit men and one woman who want nothing more than to see her dead. If I had to pick a favorite character (and this is nothing short of a difficult task), I’d have to say Mann topped the charts. She focuses on the score, and she has a body and an attitude that just won’t quit. Despite being maimed and mauled (and her thing against guns), she’s going to see her assignment through all the way to end, as long as she still has a breath or two left in her. She focuses on her script, and she sets out to direct her masterpiece, even if she has to improvise her plan multiple times. If FUN AND GAMES had been set anywhere other than LA, the high speed chases on narrow mountain passes, the tan, shaved woman sunbathing on her deck in the nude in broad daylight, the impalement of Charlie by a beautiful woman in a t-shirt and bikini underwear wielding a microphone stand like it’s a machete, and the house that goes up in flames faster than a hayfield after a lightning strike, the antics might have strained my believability factor, even though I have a high tolerance for suspending disbelief. But I figured this was LA and all bets are off, literally, and I thought absolutely nothing of the shenanigans, as I pushed the car close to ninety in the middle of the freeway, flipping page after high-octane page, and enjoying the ride with every smooth turn.
