Pleiades witch Jennifer Marcos is determined to be a contestant on Extreme Survivor. She believes that the show's host is her destined mate. To become a contestant she needs a fake boyfriend. Reluctantly she asks Nikolai Jovec to go with her. Their chemistry is off the charts which might complicate their partnership. Do they stand a chance to make it through when evil is all around them? Jenwants to find her perfect man. I liked her spunk and her determination to do her own thing. Nick is more than her match. I loved that he's dedicated to protecting Jen from the evil magic. These two may fight but they always make up. Their attraction is off the charts. They work well together and always have each other's back. I loved the romance, the Greek gods and the magic. This story is an exciting adventure filled with unexpected twists and turns. Zoe Forward kept me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait for the next adventure for the Keepers of the Veil. I received a copy in exchange for an honest and unscripted review.

Playing the Witch’s Game by Zoe Forward is the 3rd book in her Keepers of the Veil series. This series revolves around the seven Pleiades witches, their destined mates who protect them, and the evil that is out to kill them. It reads very well as a standalone, though it is always better to get to know the previous characters in the earlier books. Jen Marcos is our heroine, a Pleiades witch, who thinks she knows who her destined mate is. She has to participate in a TV reality show, Extreme Survivor, because her boyfriend is the host. Nik Jovec is our hero, and Alexi ‘s (previous hero) brother. Nik will be approached by Jen to be her partner in this dangerous game, and at first he refuses. But Nik feels his attraction to Jen, and knows that she may be his mate, and despite his fears for her survival, and her insistence to participate, he agrees to help. At the same time, Nik does not tell her that the man she thinks is her mate is not, that it is him. As this game begins, they are met with danger at every step. It is very exciting and tense. On occasion, Jen will secretly transport them to another dimension, to help them recuperate, and in those moments their relationship heats up. Jen feels her attraction to Nik, but steadfastly refuses to believe that it’s just lust. When back in the game, they cannot quit, but they realize that they are actually targets by a dangerous and powerful villain. Alexi and Serenity secretly join them to help, and the TV show camerawoman, Shannon (who is also an upcoming Pleiades witch ) is also in danger. Telling too much more would be spoilers, but this is a very exciting adventure that will hold you on the edge of your seat, unable to put the book down, as you needed to know if our couple will survive. I liked Nik a lot, he was not only a hunk; he was also so sweet and protective of Jen. I liked Jen, but wasn’t crazy about her insistence about her so called mate, not realizing until later that Nik was the man for her. Zoe Forward does a great job continuing this storyline of the witches. This is a fun exciting series, which I wholly recommend.

This was a 4+ book for me. The premise was a little out there, but it is a paranormal romance after all. This is the first one that I’ve read of this series, so it can be read as a stand-alone. This was enjoyable as it had a little bit of romance with a hot male lead; paranormal activities and some Greek mythology thrown in. Jennifer Marcos, is a Pleiades witch who is determined to participate in the next couple’s edition of the Extreme Survivor show. Nikolai Jovec is someone from her past who she ropes into portraying her fake boyfriend to get on the show. Jen thinks the host of the show is her destined mate, but the gods (and Nikolai) have something else in store for her. I enjoyed the banter between Jen and Nick and liked the other worldly aspects to the story, so it wasn’t your typical fake romance turns into something more. There was more substance to the story which I thoroughly enjoyed. I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Received ARC from the Publisher via Net Galley for an honest review.

I was tired by the time I finished this story. Jennifer and Nikolai went through so much and still somehow survived, although it was very bleak at times. The near death experiences, the evil powers surrounding them, the crazy obstacles they had to overcome kept the book interesting and me in awe. Their reintroduction to one another was quite entertaining. They pushed each other's buttons and added a little heated sexual innuendo. But when push came to shove, they supported one another and were even willing to die for the other. Definitely a destined match. Loved their story. Now I just need Shannon's story. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

Another great book in one of my favorite Entangled Covet series. Each book combines the search for the witch's "Protector" with the continuing war all of the community (friends, family, sworn protectors and others who support their destiny) surrounding these special 7 women, as witches in a modern world, face. Not only must they hide their abilities from the technology of the 21st century but there are still actual Witch Hunters out there determined to exterminate the witches and all around them! This book, more so than the first two, gives us a clearer picture of the types of enemies facing the witches and their supporters, as well as the lengths they are willing to go to to destroy the witches. I really hope we get (at least) 7 books since there are 7 witches out there who need to find love and laughter and happiness and continue to "fight the good fight".

Ms Forward gives you explanation words you might not know or able to guess what they might be. It is a standalone and the last book of this series. This is the first book of Ms Forward's I have read. At first I was not sure I would like the book, but the more I read the more engrossed I became. Jen is a witch. She thinks that Owen could be the One. He is is the host for the show Extreme Survivor. He has led her to believe that he will date her if she gets on the show. She is looking for a fake boyfriend since this is a couples show. She won't ask any of the male humans she knows and the Sentry druids, who are bodyguards for her and the other 6 witches like her. They would be good for this but they wouldn't let her take the chance because of the danger. Jen decides to go to the restroom. A man makes advances and he looks like he's had something more than alcohol. She's ready to try some self defense moves but the guy becomes airborne. She's mad but happy that Nikolai came to her rescue. His eyes have the other men leaving immediately. The gods have not provided the man for the show so convinces him to join her. Why did he agree? Why is she unhappy to have him help her?

Playing the Witch's Game by Zoe Forward...This is a very entertaining book, it held your attention all the way through. There is romance, action, fake boyfriends, survivor games, and witches. Jennifer and Nikolia have so much chemistry they burn the pages up. If you are looking for a entertaining story, this is a must read. I received a complimentary copy of this book from publisher, via NetGalley for an honest review.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This is Book 3 of the Keepers of the Veil Series. Playing the Witch's Game by Zoe Forward is amazing. Even though the book is part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. Mind you, once you’ve finished book 3, you will be tempted to go back and read from the beginning of the series. I know that’s what I’m going to do-it’s that good! The whole reality survival show angle was intriguing and to watch how it all unfolded and played into the storyline was even better. The icing on the cake was the hexing...loved it! The chemistry between Jen and Nikolai was hot and intense while the supporting characters were very well done! This book has it all guys and gals: witches, gods, romance, and action all wrapped up in a delightful package!

I loved this story!! I was sort of like a Hunger Games in the witch's world. So well written and the characters are so well developed. A great job by Zoe Forward on this one!! When Jennifer falls in love with the host of the show Extreme Survivor, he tells her all she needs to do is get on the show. Jennifer is confused as to how she is going to do this because she does not have a boyfriend at the time and only couples can enter. When Jennifer meets talk, sexy Nikolai one night, she knows that he has to be her in for the show. When Jennifer pitches the whole things to Nikolai, he is hesitant at first, but knows that he has to do this in order to protect her from this vision he has seen. The attraction is too strong for the both of them too, so Nikolai knows that he doesn't want anyone else to be able to take advantage of her. Who else can protect what he thinks is his?? No one but Nikolai, SO...he agrees to do the show with Jennifer. When Jennifer and Nikolai are being interviewed for the show, she gets a strange feeling that maybe they shouldn't go through with the whole deal. The show informs them that they are already bound by the contract of the show and that they can not back out now. Nikolai tells Jennifer that it will all be ok and that he will be there with her. When they run into the host of the show that Jennifer is trying so desperately to impress, he tries to talk them out of the show too. Jennifer thinks that his actions are strange and that what he says to her is even more strange. What Nikolai and Jennifer have to go through with the show provides for an action packed story that is for sure. Will they be able to survive all that they are being faced with? What about the host, will Jennifer get her chance with him? You need to read this awesome story to find out how things end. I don't want to give it all away because you need to read it for yourself. Such a great read and I can't wait to see what Zoe Forward come out with next!!

In this third installment of Zoe Foward’s Keepers of the Veil series, I’m absolutely blown away. Centered around a curse, a reality TV show, and Jennifer needing a fake boyfriend, the book takes you though non-stop action, tantalizing romance, and so much more. Nikolai is dangerous, sexy, and everything Jen needs in her life, even if she doesn’t want to see it. Forward’s writing is compelling and addictive and I couldn’t put the book down for the life of me. 5 stars.

A very enjoyable, action-packed addition to the series! "What could possibly go wrong with faking love with a stranger on national TV?" PLAYING THE WITCH'S GAME by Zoe Forward is the third installment in the author's bewitching Keepers of the Veil series. Each book has featured one of the seven Pleiades, female descendants from goddesses, who must meet once every seven years to ensure that the veil that prohibits evil from being released into the world remains closed. I've always enjoyed stories that incorporate Greek mythology. Add in witches and I'm more than hooked! PLAYING THE WITCH'S GAME is a very enjoyable, action-packed addition to the series. This story features ex-Russian spy Nikolai Jovec and Pleiades witch Jennifer Marcos. I love the depiction of Nikolai on the cover. This book can be read as a standalone, but it would be enjoyed more if the series has been read in order so that the reader is acquainted with the wherewithal of these Pleiades witches. As the story opens, Jennifer, accompanied by her best friend, Shannon, has cast a spell in a bar to draw possible fake boyfriend partners to join her in applying to be in the cast of the next survivor reality TV show teeming with dangerous perils. The show was an interesting twist. It was a bit confusing at first as to why Jen was so set on doing it, but, no worries, all is revealed in good time. Jen is convinced that the show's host is her intended, and while she doesn't understand why the competition is necessary to win her destinied's favor, she's determined to comply with his wishes. When she is accosted by some undesirables at the bar, Nikolai comes to her rescue. They share an acrimonious history but end up coming to an agreement to partner to compete in the show despite Nikolai's misgivings. This couple rocked. Nikolai was adorable and I was head over heels in love with him. Jennifer was stubborn and seemed to be high maintenance... at first. Their soul mate attraction was heated and volatile with plenty of angst and steamy sex. Add in a few unpleasant hexes, a pissed-off goddess and threatening wielders of dark magic and the couple's future prospects appear bleak indeed. If you have read the previous book, HIS WITCH TO KEEP, you will recognize Nikokai as the brother of Alexi, whose story was told in that book. Both Alexi and Serenity, his fated mate, appear and figure into this tale. It was great catching up with them! I thoroughly enjoyed this addition to the series. The characters were strong and compelling and the story was addicting with plenty of danger and excitement. I highly recommend PLAYING THE WITCH'S GAME to anyone who enjoys steamy, spell-bounding paranormal romance with a plethora of mystery! I can't wait to read Shannon's story!

Jen is desperate to get on a TV show, even though everyone is telling her that it's a bad idea. She just can't understand why they are being like this. She sends a spell out for a fake boyfriend to help her on the show, but gets more than she bargained for when Nikolai shows up. With hexes, a necromancer, murder and a TV survival show to contend with, Jen and Nikolai will have to dig deep to survive this. I am really liking the Keepers of the Veil series! Full of action, humour and sass, there is something here for everyone. The connection between Jen and Nikolai is simply steaming, although neither of them will admit to it being real. A wonderful addition to the series, and yet I am still wanting more! Definitely recommended. * I received this book from Entangled Publishing / NetGalley in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
