Part of a series? No, but it is a book shot.

The premise: two divorcees find one another and click. One thing they love to do during their dates is “play make-believe”; let go of their inhibitions and do things they normally would not do. Walk out on a check, take a car for a test drive for days…. crazy things. What will happen when the games go too far? When they become dangerous?
I have mixed feeling about this book. The premise intrigued me, I enjoyed the play between the characters. The two main characters seemed a bit bitter at times… but they were both going through nasty divorces. The game seemed to move along to more and more crazy things, but the progression made a strange sort of sense. I felt like the ending was rushed though. Now, I don’t know that there is enough here to make a full 240 page book, it works best as a novella; but an extra twenty pages might have been nice. All in all I enjoyed the ride and do recommend it- it just wasn’t my favorite. Three stars.
As far as the Adult Content scale goes… drugs, sex, mayhem… a seven. Let’s just say it wasn’t written with teens in mind.
The book is out now. Go get it!
