No matter where you are, they’ll find you, and put you in “The GAME”.
Candice Laguna’s life is being systematically dismantled, by an unknown force, for a reason she can’t imagine. But she is about to become the unwilling star of a reality game competition the likes of which has never been broadcast to the world.
Just when things get darkest, a mysterious man snatches her from the grips of doom. He is a man who is not what he appears, and not who he says. He has no name and his motivation to help Candice is not what it seems to be.

Sometimes a book comes along that grabs you, holds on tight and just when you think you can't take anymore (though secretly you do) the book decides to let you go. First half of The Game was awesome. Think Saw meets Untraceable. Sick, twisted, visceral I loved it! Seriously, the first half of The Game would make an amazing movie.
Now the first half of the book is 5 Stars all the way. In fact I'd recommend picking up the book just to read the beginning. The second half however, Why? Why? Why? Do you hate your readers? Was your ultimate goal to have the book thrown across the room in disgust? If so, Congrats you succeeded!
Unpredicatable Paranormal twist did not work. Why would someone try to combine these two elements together? It's like the author had writer ADHD, To many ideas, not enough time to write them all so I know, let's just throw them together. Ugh, I can't even begin to describe how truly disappointing
Overall, The Game was a huge disappointment. So much potential was wasted by introducing the paranormal element. It saddens me to say this but I'm definitely going to be leery reading from this Author again. In the end, The Game is being rated a solid ★★★. While I loved the first half, the second half killed the book for me. I highly recommend borrowing this book and testing it out before purchasing. You've been warned.
