Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


Hailed by J. Kenner as an author who “knows how to steam up the pages,” Tracy Wolff delivers a darkly addictive novel of seduction and psychological obsession. The stakes are high in Lovegame, when a movie star with a shattered past meets a man who can either break her or make her whole.

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 Thoughts:

I found Veronica to be something of a puzzle and Ivan is our way of seeing how her pieces fit together.  He also gives us a little peek into how an author may go about solving a mystery – they may see something that normal people may not pick up on.  The mystery in this seems to be Veronica herself.  She only lets us see what she wants people to know about her.  But you will find that she’s not the only one who is something of a mystery.

Our author does a bold move by not letting you know, in print, when the first person switches between the two main characters.  But you will have no trouble figuring it out for yourself.  Veronica is a woman who is very vulnerable.  She lets the reader see but no one in her world is allowed to see the cracks.  Ian is a very straightforward man who needs answers ones that get told to him and those that remain unspoken.

I found that part of the story felt psychological, there’s some sexual tension and Ian has the right antidote, and if you loved that combined with some suspense then this might just be the book for you.  This is not a book that you can expect it to be like some of our author’s other books, for example the author’s Play Me Series.  It’s a story that will have you fixated on it.  Just like a movie, you don’t want to miss anything so you stayed glued to your seat until the end comes. And that psychological thriller had me in its grips right until the end of their last conversation.  The Epilogue will give you your happy ending.  The sad part for me was in to trying to find out what Ms. Wolff’s next will be and I couldn’t find anything coming out until next year.
