Lethal Game by Katie Reus is every romantic suspense lover’s dream. Hold on while reading this one because it is action packed, filled with suspense, drama, intrigue as well as passionate, sexy romance. Reus does a great job of weaving an original plot throughout the book while balancing not one, but two romances.
Graysen is ex-CIA who has come to his friend and founder of Red Stone Security with a government contract and a job request. See, Graysen wants to win back the heart of Isa who also works for Red Stone, but she really doesn’t want anything to do with him. Being forced to work on a job together will require Isa to spend time with Graysen. I can’t say I fell in love with either of these characters at the beginning, however, as the story continued, I was treated to more layers of their personality and really really wanted things to work out for them.
The added romance between Carlito, a police detective and Emerson, a Red Stone employee was a bonus. They were loosely tied to the overall plot connected with Emerson and Isa and while I enjoyed watching their love story unfold, I would have preferred more of Graysen and Isa. I haven’t read the last few Red Stone books so it could be that the fans wanted an Emerson story and this was the best way to include that in the final book in the series. Regardless, their story was truly engaging and heart warming.
As with all of Reus’ stories, we are treated to great writing, a unique plot with descriptive action scenes, and intimate scenes that make you squirm. The best thing about a series is that many of characters from previous books make an appearance. From the owners of Red Stone Security to their wives and even discussions about other characters made for a great ending. If you like romantic suspense, definitely give Lethal Game a try.
