The Game (The ICON Trilogy #2) by Vanessa Fewings


Can she outwit the ultimate master in a timeless game of seduction?

Chasing Icon, the world's slickest art thief, was the most seductive thrill of London art investigator Zara Leighton's career…until the clues led her to the man who holds command of her body and heart, Tobias Wilder, an American billionaire with charisma to spare. Her duty to capture him is complicated by the intensity of their passion. Her will to end their connection is tinted with red-hot need to never let him go.

Tobias's heists are about more than money and ego. His plot to orchestrate the perfect deception in Los Angeles is destiny. No one—not even Zara—knows the depths of his motivation. And no one suspects the truth behind a single artifact that holds the secrets to an entire civilization. Forced to deny one calling to satisfy another, he knows something must be sacrificed: his code of honor or his loyalty to Zara.

5 out of 5 stars

Cannot be read as a standalone

Zara Leighton is torn. Does she follow the rules? Or does she trust her heart?

Tobias is somehow involved, and Zara will not stop until she finds the truth. She travels from London to Los Angeles to confront him, but what she ends up discovering changes everything.

I really enjoyed their steamy moments, but I loved their relationship outside the bedroom. The moves they played against each other were entertaining to witness. Whenever it seemed like Zara was about to find something, Tobias was always one step ahead. I couldn't put this book down!

Second books in trilogies usually drag and disappoint, but there was never a dull moment in The Game. I'm biting my nails for book 3. Please pick this series up if you love mystery, romance, and adventure.
