I don t wanna give too much away but there are lots of intrigues, plots and machinations in this book that make the story interesting and never dull But while I enjoyed the plot, I really disliked the heroine, and she s the reason why my rating is so low We are constantly told throughout the book that she is a clever, fiery woman but she s really just a spoilt, whining child that throws a tantrum whenever things don t go her way She just screams and storms off without ever giving people the chance to explain their reasons and actions, and she s also very self centered She puts Liam through so much crap that I can t really see why he bothers with her Overall, The Game is a nice story, weakened by the irritating main female character

    I just finished book and found it entertaining It is full of intrigue, deception, and love Taking place during Queen Elizabeth I s reign, it drives home some of the historical events home This book introduces the O Neill family, which I have read about in other books Though this is another romance for her, it shows the despair and dangerous times that was rampant during this historical period A great read and intriguing journey of two people s love.

    Couldn t bring myself to finish the book It started out OK But the characters were constantly flipping from one extreme emotion to another without any real explanation The storyline got so convoluted that by the time I got 3 4 of the way through, I just didn t care any.
