Delicious mix of spice and sweet as The Game continues

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Well that was utterly delicious and sweet, just like Corey Cruz himself.

Cara’s back to the top of The Game with this book, it was an absolute joy to watch how Greer, Sloan and Archer enfolded Corey into their family and helped him recover from the abuses (non sexual) his previous “Daddy” had inflicted on his mental state.

Corey is a beautiful mixture of vulnerability, brattishness, sass and sparkle, but his autism also means he sometimes struggles to understand how he’s been manipulated by Marcus, the man who should have been protecting him when he regresses into his Little persona.

This was a read in one go book from the minute I picked it up, I needed to find out what was going to happen with Corey, would he move to Denver, away from all his family and friends, would Marcus get away with his awful behaviour (which we’ve seen glimpses of in previous instalments) and would Greer be able to stand back or would he finally intervene?

All these questions, and more, were answered beautifully as Cara spun this tale of recovery, of finding a family who support, encourage, enhance and protect everyone who comes in their orbit.

And OMG this is one of the hottest, but also amazingly emotionally charged, relationships in the series so far as each one of the four men finds their own personal connection individually, in pairs, as a triad and also as a quartet.

I don’t think I could have loved this book more if I tried!
