Book Description

Trapped with a billionaire in his mysterious mansion... Can she beat him at his own game?

Lily Frazer would do anything to save the Frazer Center for the Arts--even take on the infamous billionaire Calder Cunningham. When Lily breaks onto the Cunningham estate, she only wants to find and reason with Calder. (All right, all right, she wants to punch him in the face, too, but that's Plan B.) As it turns out, the arrogant billionaire is willing to give her the money he promised, but there's a catch: she must win it from him.

And the games he has in mind aren't exactly... innocent.

Lily isn't about to give up the money without a fight (or let some haughty bastard seduce her), but she quickly discovers that there might be more to the brooding Calder than she initially perceived. As their games of cat and mouse become increasingly intense, she suddenly finds herself confused by her own emotions. Can she deny her attraction long enough to win the money she needs?

A contemporary, steamy take on Beauty and the Beast, His Wicked Games is a tale of devilish deeds, wild passions, and wicked romance.

Review

  • "This book was like the roller coaster you never want to get off of -- it had me on the edge of my seat the entire time and when I wasn't reading it, I was fangirl squealing about it to whoever would listen!" - Preppea at I ♥ Bookie Nookie Reviews
  • "His Wicked Games is a great quick and fun romance read! I read the book within three hours and couldn't put it down! It was erotic without being too much; it was sweet without being cheesy, and well written. I want the second book in the series NOW!!" - Jessica's Book Review
  • "I really enjoyed the characters, and absolutely loved the setting. I mean, who wouldn't want to spend 3 days holed up in a huge, mysterious mansion with secret passageways and gorgeous, playful billionaire to have a little fun with? Sign me up." - Brittany at Brittany & Bianca Blab Books

3.0 out of 5 stars MEEEHHH/BEWARE OF THE SEQUEL August 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book deserves at least 2.5 stars but since I cannot rate it 2.5, I will give it a 3. I liked it more than I disliked it. It gets a 3 because I think that the story it itself was well written and it flowed nicely. There are just enough supporting characters to make it interesting. I did not skip pages and it held my attention. Another reviewer stated that this book lacked something. It did. It lacked heart. I was not totally invested or convinced of the feelings of these two characters. The lead female character (Lily) is trying to solicit money for a community center that she runs. Lily is selfish and her behavior to meet this man (Calder) was just too way over the top persistent and stalker like. Once she meets him she is condescending, rude and just down right unpleasant. He starts out being gracious but there is this creepiness about him that I cannot put my finger on. He is lonely, bitter and desperate. Although he is a little creepy I do like how the author wrote his character. There was a cadence in how he seemed to speak that he is from old inherited money and that he was very worldly. Needless to say things get heated between them very quickly. Now I don't want to give anything away but when "the misunderstanding" comes it involves her ex. Honestly, I still can't figure out why she is so angry with him when he uncovers the truth. I think maybe she is more mad at herself then anything.

There is a sequel to this book. I think this was meant to be one book and she probably just put this version out to get feedback. The sequel will probably be a rehash of everything that you already read in this book with the additional chapters that should have completed this book. The author does state it on the Amazon website.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot Fun Read! June 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
"I've never been this reckless before, but I think it agrees with me. I know I'm being insane, but I don't care. I've come to save the Center, and there's no turning back now. Calder Cunningham won't even know what hit him."

Lily Frazer and her father own a small non-profit called The Frazer Center for the Arts. They rely on donations to run their operations, which gives a place for disadvantaged youth to spend time after school doing various activities until their parents pick them up.

The Frazer's have always relied on a substantial donation from the Cunningham family. However, now that Wentworth Cunningham has died, all business has fallen into the hands of his son, Calder.

Calder is a rich playboy who is used to spending his time traveling and living a carefree life. You can find him on the arm of the most beautiful women in the world at any time. Since his father has passed away, he is forced to come home and take responsibility for his affairs.

Lily receives a letter from Calder letting her know that his family will not be able to keep their contract in the future and that it would be in her best interest to not waste her time pursuing the funds any longer. Lily is not okay with that at all. The Frazer Center desperately needs that money. So she takes it upon herself to go have a chat with the man himself. When she arrives at the mansion no one will answer her at the intercom, no one will open the gates, and there are no security guards either. She thinks up quite interesting ways to get someones attention but nothing works. At her wits end, she decides to crawl through the gate!

Calder catches Lily and the game of cat and mouse begins. You can feel the attraction right from the start.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a fan January 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I didn't have high hopes for this book, so it wasn't too disappointing when it finally ended. The characters were straight annoying. The only one I could sympathize with was Calder. Lily was persistent, rude, selfish, slutty and a terrible main character.

The story had no real plot development. It was pointless.

Probably won't be reading much by this author. Would not recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars Female character's odd behaviour February 8, 2014
By A. Rees
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I expected a young woman seeking support for the arts to be poised, and have more refined language; instead Lily is a potty-mouth, doing ridiculous things. I wearied of her being soaking wet all the time, and the abundance of explicit sex diminished the story line. Too many inconsistencies. I should have saved my time when the ever-present 'battered car' entered the picture.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so good... February 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I feel like this story had potential and could've been much better. Lily was not very likeable. I wanted to punch her in the face half the time. She was selfish and stupid. Just because you say you want to have a spine over and over throughout most of the story doesn't make it so when your actions are the complete opposite. Also the love story was like eeehh... I understand lust between them but love not so much. There's also things that could've been left out such as Garrett and the whole backstory that includes him since it didn't give anything to the story. There's many other little things but I won't go over them.

It was fun at times and the sex scenes were very good. I truly liked Calder but the fact that I couldn't like Lily more turned me off the whole series.
