What would you do for one million dollars? Or rather, what wouldn’t you do? Would you play a game?
One contract. Two Guys. Three players. Four Strikes. Five rules. Six zeros. Seven days.
No safe words. No questions. Complete submission. Are you game?
Judging by the synopsis, I thought THE GAME would be one hell of a kinky read; one with a little bit of a dark edge. In the end, what I got with THE GAME was nothing like I was expecting⎯or hoping⎯for. It was kinky, no doubt about that, but it wasn’t just a little bit dark; it was very dark and, in my opinion, sick and twisted. I found the entire “game” to be bizarre and I just couldn’t make much sense of it.
THE GAME was originally released as a series of seven novellas, but it’s now been combined and released as a single book. Even though it’s now a full story, it still has that novella feel to it because of its fast pace. My Advance Reader Copy was in desperate need of a proofreader, as I lost count of all the spelling mistakes and missing words. I can only hope that these mistakes have been fixed in the final published version.
THE GAME is told mostly in Ella’s POV, with the final chapter for each day being told in Tobias’ POV. I will say this for THE GAME though: the M/F/M and M/M/F sex scenes between Ella, Tobias and Preston were so very, very hot. That being said, the amount of anal sex without lube or preparation was, for lack of better words, butt-clenching and wince-inducing. In the end, I would have just rated this story 1❤️, but I added another ❤️ because those sex scenes were fabulous and truly panty-melting.
