Review...Lovegame by: Tracy Wolff
True Crime novelist Ian Sharpe has spent his career writing about serial killers for very personal reasons. For his latest exposé, he is taking on the sadistic madman known as the Red Ribbon Strangler, and when his research leads him to Hollywood’s most private and provocative actress, he will break every rule to uncover her truth.
The daughter of one of Hollywood’s golden couples, chased by paparazzi and treated as a commodity her entire life, Veronica Romero wields her sex appeal like a weapon. She expects Ian to be as easy to control as every other man she’s ever known. But from the beginning, he refuses to fall into line. Mysterious and cool, challenging and just a little bit dangerous, Ian somehow makes her feel safe—even as he digs into the deepest secrets of her life and pushes her to the breaking point.
As raw ecstasy gives way to agonized truths, their dark obsession exposes secrets that have been buried for far too long. Ian wants to tear down her walls and heal the sensual woman underneath. But if Veronica’s learned anything, it’s that the line between pleasure and pain is a narrow one—and when caught between them the only thing that matters is how you play the game.
My Review (ARC provided)
There were so many layers to this book. I couldn't quite get a grasp of who our MC's were and then not quite half way through it was like I get it, the light bulb moment. I liked the twist in the end but I did guess it. The sex scenes were intense and the give and take of control between the two were apparent. I absolutely will not spoil this book, there is just too much in it that I could give away.
Since you have a great synopsis I won't go into detail about the book itself. This is a story of two deeply disturbed individuals (hero and heroine) they both have had lives that affected them deeply. They are very complex characters, I can't say I really liked either one of them until the book got deeper into the story. This isn't an easy read, there are some disturbing things and although it's a page turner it's not a book that is a "fast" read. I had to go over and reread parts to make sure I knew what was happening. It's a long book that consumed me.
In the end I guess I just thought for as much detail the book had, and because of the length of the book it wrapped up a little too quickly, I ultimately would've liked to see more punishment/justice of the person that did Veronica our heroine wrong.
If you want a page turner with suspense and some pretty hot scenes I recommend this one.
