Book Description

This first book in the new romantic suspense series from AJ Carella is a thrilling read.

Tara and Kyle come from completely different backgrounds but fate throws them together.

Kyle is damaged from the loss of his family. A series of bad decisions have left him working for the very criminals he once sought to put away. His heart is frozen and he cares about nothing, least of all himself.

Tara, given away by her mother when she was a child, has never known love.

Thrown together by circumstances, they soon realize that they need each other but are cruelly ripped apart.

Kyle must race against time to save Tara from the clutches of the man who controls her every move and who has kept the most devastating of betrayals until last.

This fast paced thriller takes you on a journey to the dark side of human nature.

Fate brought them together. Can The Game keep them apart?

5.0 out of 5 stars Expect the unexpected. This is terrific! March 18, 2014
By RhonJer
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I watch Scorsese movies, I'm left feeling exhilarated and drained as though I've experienced the life of all characters invovled in a fast paced, hard hitting experience unlike any other. This is how I felt from page one forward the minute I opened The Game. Like the famous movie maker, A.J. Carella yanks you into the action and you are absorbed into the characters as though you grew up with them.

Unlike anything I've read in a while (and I read a ton), this book is intriguing as heck. Don't expect to figure this one out. It just won't happen, and like the darkness you have happened into within this clever story, you are so attached you cannot stop reading. I read it in a matter of hours.

Highly recommend to lovers of suspense and dark thrillers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read September 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Let me start by saying that if you want an original plot, read this book now.

It seems like all books these days revolve around the same plot just told in a different way. This book is nothing like that.

The Game is a great story that is intriguing and new. I've never read anything quite like the story I just read (I just finished reading it). The characters breathe and are believable. The vibe of the story is a little dark in a good way. The narrative keeps you engaged and wondering how it will end. The writing is very well done and the pages fly by easily

Overall, cool story. I personally enjoyed it very much.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Dark and Very Good. Leaves You Yearning for More! October 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I think the title says it all. Miss Carella did a great job with The Game. It pulls you right in and won't let you go. The plot is gritty and, I agree with other reviewers, very unusual. Short, yes, but what I liked about it is that it was not predictable at all, especially the cliffhanger ending. Looking forward to the next one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Incredible Story September 22, 2013
By Cynthia
Format:Kindle Edition
Before I begin, the only reason I gave it four stars is because it was short. Due to it being short, some things weren't as detailed as they could've been. But this is a novella so I understand.
What I absolutely LOVED was the gritty aspect of it. Too many times there are near perfect characters. Not here! I love that they're flawed (although severely). There's definitely a future for Tara and Kyle. I look forward to reading more and AJ Carella writes the story beautifully.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read.... March 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you want a quick, interesting page turner...this is the book to read. Read this in one day. Some of the scenes could have been elaborated a bit more but this does not take away from the storyline.

1.0 out of 5 stars I got it for free. I paid too much. April 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For the first few pages of the book, it was ok. It went sharply downhill, however.

Bottom line -

Very little time was spent developing characters and relationships. I didn't get attached to any of them and didn't buy in to their 'instant' attachments.

There were inconsistencies. He says he doesn't know where an apartment is, but earlier in the book he had gone to the apartment. She hears a name given, and later hears the name again and reacts to the fact that she finally has heard the name. Things did not track correctly throughout the story.

The editing is terrible. The author and editor need to learn about using commas. Words were incorrect, which spell check couldn't catch - but someone that actually read the book carefully should be able to realize that if the sentence doesn't make sense, one of the words is wrong.

*Not worth your time to read - find something else.
