Overview

Can the power of intention go wrong?

Byrdie, a graduate of art school, decides she's sick of living on a shoestring. After reading books on success, and learning how to bring about what one desires, it's Game On. She creates a painting of what she wants to achieve and it ushers in the life she'd envisioned. When she lands a lucrative dream job in financial investments, it comes with more luxuries than she'd ever imagined.

Along with the mansion, maid, fancy car, and clothes, comes the knight in shining armor who hired her. Byrdie doesn't know the secrets he keeps beneath his polished persona, but he can't possibly be what her psychic brother thinks he is. She wouldn't have created such a perfect future, just to have it blemished with psychopathic, murdering thieves.

What's wrong is wrong and what's right is right, has always been Byrdie's motto. She soon realizes not everyone views right and wrong the same way. Will she do what she knows is right or will she discover things aren't always so black and white?

Did the power of intention go wrong? Or did it really go wrong at all? Be careful what you wish for.

Look inside and start reading now.

Reviewed by Arya Fomonyuy for Readers' Favorite Game On is Book Two in Breaking Into the Black Elite series by Shonette Charles, a compelling story of power, loyalty, and betrayal, and most importantly a tale that examines the most brazen of socialite values. When Sahara finally makes up her mind to join one of Fairchester’s most expensive social clubs, she is unaware of the obstacles she’ll have to face, and little does she know that she’ll have to face her most powerful opponent, Emery Edmonds. In this class game, she quickly learns that no one plays to lose, but does she have what it takes to win? Now the author takes readers into the behind-the-scenes stories of ambition, stabbings-in-the-back, rivalry, infidelity, and suicide. There is something very sweet and soothing in Shonnette Charles’ voice and it comes across very clearly through the beautiful writing. I particularly loved the color she brings into the world she creates through her powerful descriptions. The author creates very compelling characters who reflect the world to which she wants to introduce her readers, and they blend easily into the culture and décor of that world. I particularly loved Sahara and her kind of stubbornness that could border on the tragic. The plot is well thought out with numerous surprises for readers. If you want to know what happens behind the glitz, the expensive lunches, cars, and gadgets, then you’ll definitely be entertained and amused by reading Game On by Shonnette Charles.

Reviewed by Sherri Fulmer Moorer for Readers' Favorite Breaking into high society is hard enough, especially in a small North Carolina town, but shoving those skeletons in the closet can be a particular challenge. Game On by Shonette Charles gives readers an exciting tale of secrets, lies, double lives, and drama as several women compete for a coveted spot in the Belles and Beaus society, a group dedicated to providing opportunities for children. All mothers want to provide the best for their children, and these women will stop at nothing to win the invitation to one of the exclusive groups of high society. Central to this story are Sahara, a stay-at-home mother struggling with her past and a workaholic husband, and her rival, Emery, a down to earth, self made woman with a roving husband and a will of steel. Petitioning for entry into the society requires each woman to search within themselves, their past, and their current relationships to secure a positive step into the future for themselves and their family. Game On was a great break for me from my usual mystery/suspense and sci-fi genres, and I'm glad I gave it a chance. High society tales have always interested me, and I like how Shonette Charles shows how these women are real people with real problems, just like everybody else. Money can't buy everything, and the women in this story learn where the line is drawn between wealth and power, and the pain of reality. Better yet, I liked the characters. I could see them as real people, even in my own town. If you like drama, suspense, and some great humor sprinkled in, then this book is for you. I'm glad I read it, and I'd suggest it to readers as well.

Reviewed by Elizabeth Butts for Readers' Favorite Game On takes you to Fairchester, North Carolina where you are welcomed into the world of Sahara Kyle and her husband, Noah, along with Teri, Zora, and Emery. This is a world of ladies clubs, the social elite, and the power of who you know, not what you know. The prize? Membership to the Belles and Beaus, a very exclusive social club where the membership is held in the mother's name, but allows access to meaningful friendships and social activities for their children, as well as guaranteed membership to those children when they become parents themselves. But don't let this fool you, it is a cutthroat business getting vetted for this club, and there's only one opening. Friends are pitted against friends and, in the end, you have to decide what is more important in the long run; friendship or the climb to the top. Shonette Charles welcomes you into the world of Game On with a cheerful smile, while extending a glass of cool sweet tea. The plot twists and turns on a fun roller coaster ride, and you are hanging on for dear life along with Sahara, Teri, Zora, and Emery. The characters' emotional responses to the events that unfold around them are palpable, and you can't help but get pulled into the drama (I mean, who doesn't love drama). When you pick up Game On, you will have a hard time putting it down. I highly recommend that you read this book today!

Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite Game On is a psychological thriller by A.J. Aaron. Brent McCaster's job as a telephone customer service rep took a decidedly dark turn when he began working with the newest occupant of the Tully Mansion. As the man described the type of phone he was looking for, the clairvoyant service rep was seeing chilling images of a smartly dressed man whose suit was covered with a plastic coverall and a wine press that seemed to be brimming with blood. When he envisioned gloved hands removing skin and bones from that wine press, his pulse raced and he began to perspire. And when that customer demanded Brent's name and personal cell phone number, there was no way that he wanted to give that information out, but he could think of no way to avoid it. When Duncan James finally rang off, Brent needed to stop working just to calm down. His best friend and roommate, Stan, instantly noticed Brent's haggard appearance when they were at home later that afternoon. Stan didn't believe in Brent's paranormal abilities. After all, if he could really see into the future, why didn't he pick the winning numbers in the lottery and make them both rich? Later, at the sports bar they liked to hang out at, Brent's sister, Byrdie, mentioned a meet and greet she'd be attending at a local church that evening. She too dismissed her brother’s eerie premonitions and was focused on meeting the newest member of the church, a dashing Brit with loads of money and a successful financial investment firm. His name was Duncan James, and he and Byrdie seemed to hit it off very well that evening. A.J. Aaron's dark psychological thriller, Game On, is an exciting and suspenseful tale about a charming psychopath who seems like the perfect gentleman -- if only he didn't have that strange affectation of adding blood to his wine and keeping an abattoir in his newly renovated mansion. Duncan James, however, has met his match it seems in the lovely and ruthless, Byrdie McCaster. A dominant and powerful man who views himself as the ultimate predator, Duncan is alternately delighted and alarmed at his new assistant's easy ability to take charge and turn off all empathic responses at will. Is she his ideal predator partner or is she ultimately doomed to be yet another prey animal? This tightly plotted and tense tale will keep readers up at night as they wonder who will win this deadly psychological game. Game On is terrifying and as sharp as those special knives Mr. James and his partner, Mario, use for butchering their prey. It's one of those books you just can't put down lest you miss out on what will happen next. Game On is most highly recommended.
