I thought that The Chase was outstanding and didn't think it could get any better, but I was completely blown away by The Game. Sensational! After the big reveal about Icon, Zara was devastated and felt betrayed. She loves her investigative work and needs evidence against the "thief". Somewhere along the line, she finds herself wanting to be the "saviour". On meeting Tobias, the attraction between them is even stronger. The sexual tension is all consuming and resisting the pull proves to be pointless. Above all, Tobias wants to protect Zara. She doesn't have a clue of the danger ahead. They soon embark on the most sizzling and passionate love affair but, nothing is straightforward. There is so much more going on, and by trying to shield Zara, Tobias only manages to put doubts in her mind. As the story unfolds, the reasons why Tobias has taken this route becomes apparent. He has made a vow. One he intends to honour at the cost of losing what is more precious to him. In her quest to do what she thinks is right and to keep her reputation, Zara makes some irrational decisions. Her lack of trust drives her to misinterpret what she is told and she gets herself in a tizzy. Tobias does everything in his power to reassure her and his ability to understand and forgive is applaudable. Despite all the difficulties, their love for each other remains profound. I absolutely love the twist, where one of Zara's irrational behaviour turns out to be an eye opener and a life saver! I must admit that I was shouting at her at this stage! The Chase is more than I expected. The plot is intricate and plagued with greed, danger, deceit and corruption. Yes, there is lust but, the love between Tobias and Zara is just as potent. An extraordinary couple and a brilliant read! The end has left me wanting for more, and I look forward to see what transpires in The Prize.
5 “game on!” Stars! Exciting, intriguing and absolutely addicting ... and deliciously naughty! Tobias Wilder is seriously dreamy! The Review: This author NEVER fails to impress. If you think this story couldn't get more decadent, more compelling, more charged and more provocative, it most certainly did in this second installment of the ICON Trilogy! The writing is intelligent and mesmerizing, the story vivid and electric, and the characters even more enchanting and alluring than before! I loved this read and with the way it ended, I’m salivating for the third and final book in the series. It’s going to be a torturous wait, but one I’ll gladly endure to see how this fascinating story ends. Story/Characters... After the unbelievable and exhilarating ending from book one, the author picks up right where she left off, only this time we are taken from the lively and historic streets of London to the complex, billowing City of Angels. Believing Tobias Wilder is the infamous ICON, Zara Leighton tracks her man to his art museum in Los Angeles and as she closes in on him, her heart is torn between believing all she knew about them as a couple to be a lie, and trusting he is the man she’s come to love. With her heart invested and her mind confused, Zara is on a mission to save Tobias from himself, seeking the truth behind ICON. Never expecting to develop the feelings he finds himself harboring, Tobias is on a mission to possess every inch of Zara, get her to trust him and ultimately protect her. Zara’s character is so much fun! I love her honesty and her moral compass. And I totally love her spontaneity and her penchant for getting herself into certain situations which usually lead to an exciting adventure and Tobias swooping in to save the day. As for Tobias, though more layers of his character were stripped away and his motives and personality became more transparent, he still remains a great mystery and one who impresses with his heart stopping intensity, his spine tingling sexual presence and his incomparable intelligence. The man makes me “swoon”! These two are intoxicating together. The “sexy” is definitely amped up in this book as Zara and Tobias’s chemistry sizzle. Their romance is challenging, flirty and the sexually charged as each tries to outmaneuver the other. And it was exceedingly FUN to read! But the books contains more than just an outstanding romance. There’s mystery and intrigue at every turn as a dark past and sinister intentions circle the elitist art world. Zara digs deeper into the thefts she’s tasked with uncovering and discovers a danger and wealth of deception she might not be prepared for. Tobias, with all his gadgetry and sleuthing skills, has to stay one step ahead of his pursuers, to not only protect himself, but also the woman he loves. Writing Notes... I’ve said it before, but it bears repeating. I always come away from a Vanessa Fewings book enlightened, educated and drunk off her smart, witty writing style. In this book, she really conveys her passion and love of the art world through her expert writing and storytelling. She writes with feeling and I was captivated by the world she created. I, who have hardly any knowledge of the art world, came away from the story intrigued and determined to learn more. The Wrap Up: The Game was deliciously clever and all around consuming. If Tobias Wilder didn’t steal your heart in the first book, he surely will in this second installment of the ICON Trilogy!
