I can't wait to see how the series conclude. Review can also be found on Four Chicks Flipping Pages: Oct 29, Kate's Corner rated it it was amazing Shelves: You have to read the first book to read the second book in the series. She is passionate, a firecracker. She has a connection to Jake that makes her open up. I love them together they Balance one another out and Jake is amazing. Jake was 5 Me, Tarzan. Jake was so accepting of Maggie's past.
I was really into the story and as soon as I was in it I got ripped out of it. Three words I didn't want to read are to be continued again. I shall be patient for the thrid book. I knew there was a cliffhanger but it still annoyed me not enough to dock a star though. Diamond writes a solid Story with great suspense and an unpredictable plot. Kayla is still missing we know who it is and the plot behind it is solid.
The kidnapper planned it all for five years and covered his tracks but he didn't cover them well enough. Kayla is a fighter. And the Senator her father is a cruel, coldhearted bastard and well the mum seems to be spineless.
The ending was unexpected and to use Ms. Diamonds words you will have to wait for this to be continued. Book supplied by author in exchange for an honest review. Dec 03, Book Him Danno rated it really liked it. Book two starts right back up from where book one leaves off. Senator Thebese is still a horrible father unwilling to give the kidnapper what they want with exchange of his diabetic daughter. The plot thickens as they learn the true identity of the kidnapper giving the story a boost.
I honestly enjoy this story but I wish the author had made it one full length novel bringing in more background detail, more depth that would pull me in more than reading and quickly ending the book with a cliffhanger. I needed more of everything, personal connections, angry and more background that gave me the details to fill in what was missing.
As a while I would rather have Tess write this as a full length novel than three short stories. Jan 06, Donna Maguire rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is the second book in the O'Connor and Kincaid series and this kept the brilliant pace from the first book, Dangerous Games. Tess Diamond has again written a brilliant book and I read it in one sitting and loved every page. In this book, time is running out for Special Agent Maggie Kincaid What started as a routine case has spiralle https: I loved the first in the series and was delighted when Tess offered me the opportunity to review the second and third books too in exchange for honest reviews - I have read a lot of crime fiction and police procedurals and this book is up there with the best of those I have read - I loved it!!
The characters are believable and I really enjoyed how they have developed and Maggie is a brilliant lead character, a kick ass woman in predominately a man's world - I'm looking forward to the third and final book - 5 stars!! Nov 24, Kris - My Novelesque Life rated it really liked it. Game of Lies continues where the first book left off and but knowing the identity of the kidnapper hasn't made Maggie or Jake's jobs any easier.
They may know the who but now they have to discover the why to get to the Senator's daughter alive. In the second part of the three-part series we get to know more about Maggie's past - what happened with her own kidnapping as a child and why she left the FBI two years ago. We get a few glimpses of Jake but not enough to make him a more standout hero.
If you are looking for more heat in the romance department, Diamond does deliver but I was more intrigued with the consequences. I will definitely be reading the third book as soon as I can because I am curious to see how it all gets tied up. Stay tuned to tomorrow's post as I will reveal if it is all worth the hype I have psyched myself with, lol. For those wanting to wait till all 3 books are released Nov 26, Kathy Martin rated it really liked it. This book is spent trying to track down the perpetrator and rescue Kayla before she goes into a diabetic coma.
Along the way, they learn why the perpetrator is doing this. And we learn just how long the plot has been in the works. Maggie Kincaid is still dealing with the doubts that caused her to leave the FBI two years earlier. A case that reminded her of her own kidnapping when she was a child went horribly wrong. They have been attracted to each other since they first met. But it manifested as a competitive rivalry with Jake especially wanting to beat Maggie to clues.
In this book they are starting to work together better and support each other. The only problem I had with this story was that it was incomplete. Like the first book, this story ends on a major cliffhanger. Dec 16, Nadine Bookaholic rated it really liked it Shelves: I just don't know, there was so much going on. Well, we know who the bad guy is but what we didn't know was why. Maggie and Jake get to the bottom of that in this part of the trilogy and there is a big reason on why he kidnapped Kayla!
Unfortunately he still has her, but; Maggie and Jake are getting closer to rescuing her. Things heat up between Maggie and Jake, and Paul doesn't like it I'm off to read the last book End Game. Nov 19, Anita rated it it was amazing Shelves: ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
Riveting suspense and smoking hot romance. Throw in a dash of dark humor and you have the perfect recipe for the second installment of the O'Connor and Kincaid serial. The first book Dangerous Games is a must read first. Otherwise, you will be coming in during the second act of this suspense drama. Game of Lies picks up with the escape and manhunt of the kidnapper of Kayla, the 14 year old diabetic daughter of US Senator Thebes. We also ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Also revealed is the reason for the kidnapping. The cliffhanger is the perfect setup for the final installment of this fantastic serial.
Digital copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review] Great installment in this trilogy. This book gave me everything I was hoping it would when I finished the first book. We get more back story on the previous case that Maggie worked on that led to her leaving the FBI which I was really pleased about. We also get more of Maggie and Jake's budding relationship, which I was really happy about! The chemistry between these two just steams up the pages.
