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.


Rating: 3.5*

This was my first book by F.G. Adams and it was one that appealed to me after reading the blurb.  However, I struggled to connect to the story and the characters.  There were elements of this story that I felt were glossed over and not really given the attention that they needed, whilst others were given too much attention.

That being said I was still able to enjoy elements of this story.  Lukas and Sage have a one night history between them and when Lukas' life is changed irrevocably by war, it brings Sage back into his life.  A wedding brings them back into close quarters and this time Lukas is not giving up but Sage is stubborn.  In addition someone is stalking Sage and it is someone from both their pasts.  I suppose it is good that Lukas is even more stubborn than Sage and refuses to let her run away and deny her feelings for them.

Sage's stubbornness was just plain rude on occasion and I found it hard to understand Lukas' perseverance at these times and yet at times you could see her exterior slip and Sage let him in which brought me back into the story.

I wonder whether I should have read others in the series first as this may have filled in some of the gaps I felt were there.  It felt that there was an expectation that we knew the backstory for all the characters.  I will be going back to read the earlier installments in the series and will revisit this again at a later point.
