Title: Separation Games
Author: CD Reiss
Series: Games Duet Book2
Release Date: January 3, 2016
These are the unbreakable rules in the game.
Stay collected. Compartmentalize. Think your next move through. Never let your heart dictate your tactics.
The heart is impulsive.
The heart makes bad decisions.
The heart doesn’t see the long game.
Because the heart may have decided to get Adam back, but when the endgame comes, the heart’s going to be the first thing to break.
The stakes are higher and the emotions even more raw in the heart-stopping conclusion to the Games Duet. Separation Games picks up after the conclusion of Marriage Games, which left me completely gutted. If I was gutted, imagine how confused and heartbroken our heroine felt! Book 2 is told from Dianna perspective and have to admit, I really liked her in this book! Although she owns her submissive nature she remains a strong capable woman who fights for what she wants.
*slight spoilers ahead*
After Adam leaves her in Montauk, she rewrites the rules of the game and pulls out all the stops to save her marriage. The irony and juxtaposition of the main characters was very entertaining, albeit slightly confusing. Adam is dominant, but can’t love a sub. Dianna is a sub that refuses to follow directions. Initially he was fighting for the marriage and now she’s pursuing him. Seriously, right was left and up was down in this one, folks.
It’s dramatic, heart-breaking, thrilling, confusing, and utterly breathtaking. To say the relationships and characters in this novel are complex is an understatement. The character development is phenomenal. Each character discovers a piece of themselves they never knew existed. It was so great to see them finally come together.
What I loved the most about Separation Games was the writing. It’s smart, well thought out, deliberate and spot on. This is one of those books that leaves you questioning how on earth the author came up with the details!
Overall, this is another heart-pounding, breathtaking read from CD. Reiss. If you’re a fan of angsty emotional reads; this series is definitely for you.
I rate it:
