Passions are rising…J.J and Jack discover each victim had a shocking secret, and the very foundation of J.J.’s life is in danger of crumbling when it turns out she’s harboring secrets of her own—secrets that make her a perfect target in a deadly game.”

This is book 1 of 10 (books 11 and 12 are available for preorder)

While the premise of this story is one that had every potential of being great I feel this first story came up a bit short. There are some holes and completely dropped plot points, the protagonist has a quirk of being a bit obsessed with sex and getting herself some but after a while it got really old and I just wanted to skip it altogether, but alas I am not a quitter. The ending was something I didn’t see coming and that’s because it was never even hinted at, let alone introduced. I will continue this series just to see if it gets better with each book but as of now this book is getting a two out of five stars.
