Foolish Games by Lilliana Anderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
4 Cranky Stars
First things first yes, this book can be read as a standalone. You might be a tad lost on the family dynamic, but it can be read as one. I was the one who jumped straight into this one without thinking wishing I had some background into the characters. It’s all good though it was a rather interesting read.
Veronica “Ronnie is a petty thief. Car theft and lifting small things to make a quick buck were her thing. When she steals a car she doesn’t expect that it would come back to bite her in the rear. She is now in the crosshairs of someone very powerful who shakes her already once unstable life upside down. Ronnie and her hatred of authority or anyone in general who holds her back makes a grave mistake in targeting this guys car once again. When she is caught and “forced” to pay off her debt by living with her captor she thinks things can’t get any worse.
Kristian is in love with his car (honestly it’s truly ugly) but he’s a man of his word. You mess with him and his family you get what’s coming to you. He has connections that are far reaching and when he decides to mess with the life of the woman who messed with his car. He catches her once again and basically makes her his live in maid to pay off her debt. When secrets come to light he realizes they are more alike than he thought.
I waffled with my rating on this book. At times it was frustrating to make sense of Ronnie and Kris. They were the same yet so different and so combative with each other. I wanted to hate a lot of members of the Cartwright family but Toby. He was kind of stalkerish, but I got it. The way the brothers have found their women was kind of odd, but I guess that’s what makes the story. All in all it was a steamy interesting read with lots of drama and action.
