Summary

I was too isolated. I was about to be evicted. I made a final desperate call to the man who ruined my life, but he didn't come for me. 

Someone else did. 

And then there was Seven. When I first woke in the cell, I thought he was my captor, but he is a pawn, like me. 

Seven is beautiful and kind. I want him so much I can barely breathe. He wants to protect me from our captor, but he can't. 

We are both locked inside a game neither of us can ever hope to win, and even though it's wrong, I'm starting to want both men, not just the good one...the monster as well. 

This is a stand-alone dark contemporary romance.

Insane and twisted

So crazy, twisted hot. Jaw dropping! Submissive and Master play. Psychopathic Men, could never expect the conclusion.

Woah! What a dark kinky read!

This was so much fun - really made me sit up and listen and so much strong feeling reading it - made me furious, confused, baffled, turned on - well done Kitty! Great narration also!

5 mind-bending stars!

Kitty has done it, I didn't think I'd ever say this, but I think she's topped Comfort Food and Tender Mercies, I think The Game Maker wins.

In true Kitty style, the twists are great, it's dark, kinky and the heroes are to die for.

I don't want to say too much and anything could be a spoiler and this book is best going in blind. But if you like dark romance, this is one of the best.

The narrator for this one is awesome, she's gives such life to Kate. She's narrated some of my favourite books so I'm so glad to have her back for The Game Maker.

Another great Kitty book!

Another Kitty book to add to my favorites!! In true Kitty fashion, we get darkness, unconventional romance, twists, turns, and a whole lot of sexy time. If you’ve read previous Kitty books you know what I’m talking about. If this is your first, it’s definitely a good introduction to dark romance. I’m not even sure what I can say because it seems like everything I want to say is a spoiler LOL but needless to say, I loved it! I loved Seven and the captor. I loved Kate and how she doesn’t fight her urges too much. To be completely honest, I loved this book so much, I want more in this world! I want more of these 3 characters. I want to see what’s beyond the ending. I want them to be in another “dark” situation. I’m not sure what that says about me but I can’t get enough of Kitty’s books! And don’t even get me started on that gorgeous cover! The first cover to have a male model. Hello, gorgeous! It rivals my favorite cover of Kitty’s which is “Persephone”.

Shirl Rae does a phenomenal job at bringing these characters to life! She’s quickly becoming a favorite narrator.

This book is a MUST, MUST, MUST read!

Delightfully Dark and Twisted

I listened to this in one sitting. It was good and I will be listening to it again, which I rarely do. It would be hard to say much without spoiling it. So I'll leave it at this. I rarely ever enjoy the narrator and I liked this one and I rarely rate books at a 5.

yes and no

On one hand I really enjoyed this and I kinda didnt. I seriously struggled with the FMC. Her inner dialog and direct explanation/rationalizations took me out of the story several times. I love a dark and twisty captive with dub-con abound which is totally fine in this setting for me. The ending had me rolling my eyes but ok. As an overall escape and good sex scenarios to loose yourself in this totally worked.
Shirl Rae narration is different but I appreciate and enjoyed it.

Fabulous Book!

Love this twisted tale. The build up and climax are expertly done, one of my favorite Kitty reads. Listening to it while I cleaned house was like the book coming to life, fantastic! Shirl Rae is an awesome narrator!

My favorite from Kitty so far!

The game is dark, devious, depraved, and yet so tempting. Kate may be a manipulated captive but something in her aches in fascination for it. Its all so twisted but yet perfect at the same time. I was pulled into the story with this narrator's soothing, alluring voice.

This tale is best when going in blind. You'll understand once you've read or listened. It's impossible not to dive in and escape, you yourself will become a captive in its lustful grip. One woman, one man, one captor, the possibilities are eternal.

Dark & twisty & fascinating!!!

What an intriguing, dark, twisty tale this was, but I totally loved it! Kate’s life has pretty much fallen apart (thanks to a man no less), when she makes a rash decision while sitting at a bar, and makes a phone call that changes everything. She wakes up in a cell, with a man, and another man calling the shots. And this is where things start turning a bit dark & some twists come in. And you can’t put it down!! Gripping & fascinating! And Shirl Rae does a phenomenal job narrating this story. I’m telling you, it’s a definite must listen to!!

I enjoyed this one.

I really had a God time listening to this book. it was unique and while the main character had a definite case of stockholm syndrome, there was no doubt that it was still enjoyable to listen to. The end felt a little rushed with Kate falling into her new life so willingly and quickly, and although it was obvious the guys cared for her, it didn't feel like this was conveyed strongly enough. I understand they're sociopaths, but all the same I was hoping for just a little more love expressed between them all. Either way, I liked the writing and the performance was awesome so I really shouldn't have any complaints!

Great read

This book is about a woman named Kate who's ex has blacklisted her from finding a job and is about to be homeless. On the day she agrees to return to her ex she's kidnapped and placed into a cell and forced to play a dangerous game. Who can she trust her cellmate? Her captor? Herself? Can she figure a way out of her predicament in one piece?

Kate was very strong but gentle. She was dealt a shit hand and tries to do her best with a bad situation. When she wakes up in the cell I had a lot of thoughts. The ending was definitely surprising. Another great read!

I would recommend this book if you like suspense, surprises, hot bad guys, sex, fear and twist endings!

I love Shirl she's such a great narrator and she did well narrating all the different characters and made the story come alive a great listen.

Loved it

I enjoyed the narrator. She had a pleasant voice and I liked how she changed her voice for the different characters. Made the story that much better!

This is another great book by this author! She knows how to write them and keep you interested and twitching in your seat! If you've never read this author then this is a great one to start. It isn't attached to any of her other stories and it doesn't end in a cliffhanger. And if you have ever read any of this author's books then you know you can expect the best kind of dark romance she can come up with!
