3.0 out of 5 stars Sweet & Sordid, 11 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Game (Kindle Edition)
This is the sequel to a previous book. However, I didn't read the first book and it didn't matter. There are certain references to things that occurred within the previous book but it doesn't affect this story. As the name suggests, this book is about 'a game' or 'being game' and the whole story is about the challenges that Lloyd sets for Sophie. Some of them are lighthearted whilst some are just sordid.

Sophie narrates the story so you see how she feels about Lloyd even though she doesn't need to express her love for him in words. There is a certain tenderness and gentleness when she thinks about him or looks at him. One of my favourites is when she looks at him in the shower and sees his hair plastered down to his head and the water dripping from his eyelashes - read it and you will see what I mean.

I love Lloyd! He is no he-man and he has a pale freckled chest, according to Sophie, and is just a normal bloke who loves Sophie. He can be dominant but is never vicious. He doesn't need to tell Sophie that he loves her, you just know from the way he treats her and talks to her. He has imagination and a certain charm. During one part of the book he has doubts about whether he is a proper dom and asks Sophie whether he ought to get a tattoo to make himself more macho, I smiled because it just seems so typical of him. Also when Sophie says that she doesn't like to be called 'a sub' because it makes her sound like a baguette, I laughed out loud. I loved these interactions and the gentle humour between them.

There are things in this book that I think are a turn off. The overuse of the word 'c***' for a part of the female body is one of them. I also think some of the challenges are quite sordid - mainly because they involve strangers. I realise that the whole premise of this book is about these challenges but I dislike them and don't find them erotic. I have knocked stars off because of these. The hottest sex both within and without the challenges is between Lloyd and Sophie - probably because it is within a caring relationship - I don't know - I am going to have to think about that one.

I like the author's writing style. She makes the story flow easily. I like the way she injects humour into any given situation and helps the reader understand Lloyd's and Sophie's feelings with nuance and inference rather than blatancy. Well worth a read.
