His Wicked Games by Ember Casey

Monday, August 19, 2013
Synopsis: 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 sexual in nature, 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: His Wicked Games is a refreshing read with plenty of steamy scenes. Casey drew me in from chapter 1 and I was hooked until the end. I think the thing I loved about His Wicked Games is it didn't come off as cliche like so many other contemporaries with hot billionaires. I also think that it was a fantastic contemporary take on Beauty and the Beast. I don't think I could've asked for better.

I adored the setting of this book, it's very gothic with Calder's Mansion, the secret passageways, the maze, and the storm that strands Lily. I thought it was fantastic that Casey really kept me guessing until the end. She did a fantastic job making Calder come off like a gorgeous asshole even though he wasn't entirely.

My only complaint is I wish more time would've been spent on developing Lily and Calder and who they were before they met each other. I felt like there were some unanswered questions.

Overall, I would definitely recommend His Wicked Games. It's a refreshing and sensual read. I can't wait for book 2! :)
