“Games of Rome” is a good second installment of the series. The murder mystery, as well as a few other surprises, provides a nice counterpoint to the developing ‘romance’ between Gaius and Allerix. As in the first book, the historical background of the story rings true, while the dialog is sometimes shockingly contemporary.
With few new characters introduced, this volume flows along quite well. The main players have all been set up in the first book, so there’s very little time wasted getting to know new personalities. The storytelling is quite vivid, not to mention a little steamy in parts. It will probably leave you hoping the next installment is not so far away this time.
Lots of plot development occurs in his book, some good things happen, some bad things happen, and of course, sexy times happen. I gained extensive knowledge on the Roman ' s sexual appetites, the food they ate, and the way they prepared their homes for guests. Roman politics plays a central role in this tale, involving well written characters that we love to hate, and ache to love. I cheer with the character's triumphs, and weep with their heartbreaks. JP Kenwood kept me riveted to the pages of book 2, and left me wanting more.
So, as I raise my glass of wine, I cheer the fabulous characters, and well written story of the Roman and his slaves. May he find peace, love, and vengeance for the murder of the first man he ever dared to love, and the new man teaching him to love once again.
I loved this book. The writing is so delicious I can feel, smell and taste the characters' surroundings while reading.
I loved the eroticism. It is sweet and passionate when it needs to be, rougher and sexy when called for. What I also admire is the author's ability to write the erotica without the scenes seeming repetitive, and every sex scene furthers the characterization (or plot).
There is a little paranormal in this one, and it was perfect, even believable. I loved the ghost so much.
I don't want to give spoiler details away, but I will say that one character has never experienced a certain sexual position, and he gets to. I was thrilled about that (it might seem a small thing, but I loved that he got to do it). Read the book to find out what that is.
I highly recommend this series and cannot wait for book 3. Well done!
I was hoping Allerix would have saved the whole series for me and he's nice and sweet and very likeable but I was utterly disappointed how easily he was taken by Gaius, I get why the other slaves think he is just that amazing, it makes complete sense for them but Allerix is a Dacian prince, he grow up hating and fighting Romans and now he seems fine being a sex slave for not just a regular Roman but to the very general responsible for the destruction of his people, not just fine but having feelings for him. I would need much more than I got to make me believe that, I know from the dozens and dozens of sex scenes that he's having lots of fun with his "master" but I don't get how he got there. I would love it it was only an act, Gaius being "in love" with his slave while he had much, much more conflicted feelings and trying to use that would have been wonderful but that's not what happened, if he was more proactive would be great but his only plan of rebellion is so dumb is almost embarrassing and of course it's discovered by Gaius because he's oh so clever and Allerix is so incompetent. What annoyed me in these books is that I expected an amazing enemies to lovers stories full of epic drama, hurt and sex between two strong characters but what I read until now was this very average story about a "hot" master and his pushover slave/prince having lots and lots of sex with each other and with other characters and that's somehow means they have feelings for each other. I'll keep reading because they are enjoyable books in a not very popular setting, and by the end of this book is implied that Gaius will punish Allerix in the next one and I'm curious if that would make Allerix realize Gaius is not his boyfriend but his master who can do absolutely anything to him and it might make him step back and maybe be angry? Despondent? Vengeful? Sad? Anything so that I can at least try to get what makes him tick beyond having sex with his master/enemy.
