Author: F.G. Adams
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
 Release Date: July 19, 2017

Oh, the foolish games we play.

The moment I was gifted a test drive of the luscious Sage Blackwood, I knew she was mine. I was broken, half a man, until she pieced me back together. She changed my world forever with her magnetic humor and hot body. Sage is an expert of subterfuge. Her logic overrules her cravings. It doesn’t matter if she feels the same; I’m the master at games and puzzles. And I’ll win this game in the end. I always do.

Oh, the tangled webs we weave.

Pushing the wrong buttons is Lukas Rogers' forte. Except he presses all the right ones when he’s sending me to heaven with each and every delicious touch. But I can't give him what he wants. I will never give myself completely to another. It just doesn’t work in my world. I bury those dreams deep. My job connected us. Now this powerful bond scares me. My body desires to cling to what Lukas offers, while my mind is telling me to run away.



Ok SO yes that's a 3.5 rating, but let me explain.

When I finished the book I liked it much, much better than when I began it. For me there was a disconnect with the writing. On one hand it reads like a standard romance. Not much dirty stuff. On the other it's like someone added just enough cursing and dirty stuff to try to make it "today's" romance.

I think it would have made an awesome historic book. Change the setting and change some of the military aspects and it would have made a bit more sense. I found myself reading it in a British accent. LOL All the one-liners and elementary type banter really took away from the story for me.

And the story is really great!!! The characters are too!! I loved Lukas and Sage so much. Sage has and independence and sassiness that I LOVED. Along with Lukas' broken and brought back to life determination, they are a force.

I loved Lukas' alpha protection but also his respect for Sage's independent streak. They balance and compliment each other. They understand each other's weaknesses and needs and respect each other.

Even though I didn't love some of the writing aspects, it's a great story. Everyone reads things and likes things differently. I also have to say that I did not read the other three first. Each book is about a member of the "team" and I think that would have helped. However, I didn't feel lost, as there is enough mention of past events to help you along.

Give this book and the series a try. You may love it.
