The story was a slow process – foremost the chapters in the beginning - and information was seeded sparsely but after I got to know the characters better, I was smitten and greedy to learn more about them.
The ending was not something I'd have seen coming and really took me by surprise. It was a huge cliffhanger and I can't wait to read more!!
This book was told from multiple POVs and started in the present but went back in time to when Tia and Atticus were kids. The past chapters were chosen perfectly because they always had enough information to understand what happened and to get a better feeling of the characters growing connection, but it was never too long to lose my interest and moved ahead on a great pace.
Tia and Atticus lived in two very different worlds and it was just a matter of time that their ways would take different directions and lead them apart, even though they never thought that it would come to this, it eventually happened. He went to a school far away and growing up paired with long distance friendship could only bring trouble and change a person.
This book is hard to describe because the blurb says a lot already but it's the details that matter and how the book is written which made it so amazing.
These characters couldn't be any more different from each other but still had a lot in common. Tia's life had never been easy what with her mother worshipping the ground Mrs. Kruse walked on despite the way this woman treated Tia and how she looked down on people like Tia and her mother. Atticus didn't care that his mother didn't like him playing with Tia because he liked her and although his family was rich and he could have anything he wanted, friends were a rarity for him too.
When Tia was accused and put in jail for theft, Atticus hands were tied for a different reason.
After her time spent in jail, Tia couldn't afford to do anything that put her on the police radar because she wouldn't survive prison another time. Once in a lifetime was enough and even that was too many especially since she was innocent in the first place and still had to live in hell for years because of the Kruse family. It's time for revenge.
Atticus was a lively and smart young boy full of temper. He was very clever for his age and he knew how he got his way. This didn't much change when he grew older, but he became tougher, hardened from life and deep regret held him back from happiness. I was torn about his character because although I couldn't resist his charm as a young boy and understood his reasons for most of his actions, he was arrogant and cocky, and I didn't know everything that happened yet so my opinion of him is not made up yet. The same applies to another character. =P
There were lots of secrets in this book and not many were revealed yet. I can't wait to discover them in the next book!
Oh! I almost forgot to mention the very hot scenes in this book! Lots of sexual tension and frustration led to some very intense scenes. And all the while I had to think of the characters secrets and if what they said and did was honest or just a game.
The title of this book was spot on and so true with the story because this definitely were some wicked little games!
This book is so completely different to anything this author has written before; the quality and depth of the writing has evolved into something so much more than previous novels. As the story progresses it becomes harder and harder to work out the direction this book was going to take. It's books like these that take my attention hostage and not releasing me until the last page has been read. I am consumed by the lives of these characters. In true Dee Palmer style we are provided with not just one sexy alpha male but two for us to drool over! AND this book had me feeling uncomfortable (in a good way) on several occasions.
Logan has a whole load of secrets of his own going on; added to Tia's nightmares makes this a compelling read. Logan wanted more than just friendship with Tia, she has friend zoned him. However, you are willing her to just cross the friendship line she has set for herself, there is so much erotic tension between them. We know from previous books this author can write steaming hot sex scenes that leave you needing a cold shower! Logan was just sex on legs for me, he had no inhibitions and knew exactly what he wanted!
We are fed bits of information about Atticus (Cass); her childhood sweetheart. A character you truly want to dislike but can't. Cass is the complete polar opposite to Logan, he is arrogant, narcissistic, dominant and powerful due to the legacy of the Kraus family fortune. A Family shrouded in secrets and lies. Heading up the family, Atticus's mother who could give the wicked stepmother a run for her money! The woman is a bona fide snob who hates Tia on sight because she doesn't have the breeding or the social status that the Kraus family has amassed!
Reading this book will leave you sucker punched as it ends at the most inconvenient part of the story; I am now left hanging until part two. Damn!!
