Truth or Dare by Ember Casey
Calder, Calder, Calder, how I have missed you!! This book is the sequel to His Wicked Games and picks up 3 weeks after the conclusion of that book. Lily is back at work and Calder is off dealing with whatever it is he is dealing with (he is still being secretive).
Now outside of the estate will Calder and Lily be able to have a "normal" relationship? Despite all the secrets that Calder holds will Lily be able to discover the true "Calder Cunningham," what will Lily have to do to peek at the cards that he holds so tightly to his chest. The secrets are not all one sided though...Lily is still reluctant to tell her father who the "new man" is in her life. She fears that he will not be accepted because of what happened with the pledges when the Cunningham Estate went to the wall.
The press are still out in force trying to get the scoop on what has happened. The rumour mill is in overdrive and Calder's name is being sullied left, right and centre. Lily cannot defend him as people are still unaware of their relationship. Lily also feels that she still doesn't know anything about Calder, she therefore plays him at his own game and starts a game of "Truth or Dare" to try and get him to open up and maybe just maybe she can shed some light on this mysterious man.
The games were a hoot!! Initially Calder does not play along and plays safe but eventually they open up to each other and Ember writes some seriously smoking scenes, who knew that a game of Truth or Dare could be so highly amusing, stimulating and seriously hot! They are both playing hardball during this book and it really makes for some highly entertaining reading.
When Calder "forgets" about what is going on with regards to his father and the estate, we get glimpses of the true Calder and he is a man that you cannot help but fall in love with. He has the weight of the world on his shoulders, but those little sneak peeks you get make you melt.
"But please, I don't want to drag you into this. You are - you are the only thing keeping me together. The one perfect, beautiful thing in my life right now. The only thing set apart from all this BS. I need that, please, Lily, I need that. I need you."
Like the first book, I was seriously rooting for this couple all the way through. I felt that they brought out the best in each other and truly deserved happiness, together! Ember Casey once again takes you on a journey that you don't want to finish and the kindle was firmly gripped in my hands until the end, I could not put it down. I wanted to see if they got the HEA they so richly deserved and thoroughly enjoyed the ride to the end.
For a new author, Ember has a great way of you drawing you in, this book will make you laugh and cry, whilst taking you down a road full of plot twists and turns, angst, drama, love, romance and smexy times. I have thoroughly enjoyed this series and cannot wait to see what comes next from this author.
