Series: The Game Makers #3
“The Player has to be my favourite in this series, it has the perfect mix of humour, romance and scorching hot sex”
~ Under the Covers
So, we come to the final Sevastyan sibling, Dmitri; the mysterious youngest brother of the trio, the brother we have heard about, yet never seen, was he worth waiting two books for? Hell. Yeah. In The Player sets eyes on Victioria “Vice” Valentine and, like his brothers before him, and knows she is his. However, Vice is a con artist from a family of con artists who is in a spot of trouble. Her only way out? Get a big score, and Dmitri seems like a prime target only she gets more than she bargains for. After all, the last thing she should do is fall in love with him.
Someone get me an ice bucket and a fan! I need it after reading The Player, Kresley Cole has made the third book in The Game Maker the sexiest one to date, I’m pretty sure Dmitri and Vice overheated my poor kindle…or maybe they just overheated poor me. I feel sorry for the next guy with a Russian accent that I hear, ‘cos there’s a fair chance he is going to be jumped. I fully expect Cole to get me the bail money, after all it’s all her fault.
The Player has to be my favourite in this series, it has the perfect mix of humour, romance and scorching hot sex, all of which Cole is fantastic is writing and in this book came together really well. This is nothing new and the book was written very much in Cole’s style, yet with Dmitri she has created a hero who was both incredibly vulnerable and undoubtedly lethal and his pursuit of Vice was both beautifully tender and crazy aggressive and this very contradictory blend of features and actions made him irresistible. I’ve already mentioned how hot the sex was between them, but it bears repeating, the chemistry between them was fantastic, they sizzled together right from the very start. All of which led to some incredibly delicious scenes between them, scenes that were more than just body part a inserts to body part b, it was sexy not only because what they were doing, but because they were with eachother.
This is such a great book, my favourite in the series although, but if you haven’t started The Game Maker series yet it reads well as a standalone; it isn’t necessary to have read the previous books to understand what is happening. If you want something sexy and funny then I highly recommend you pick this up, it is one of my favourite reads of the year so far!
