~ Under the Covers
For what feels like years ago now, the I-Team series was my top favorite Romantic Suspense series for a long time. I remembered readers begging Pamela Clare for horny Holly’s book for years but the time has come to have her story told. When I realized that SEDUCTION GAME was Holly’s book my expectations sky-rocketed and I went into this book hoping to be blown away. And I was.
For the most part.
Pamela Clare’s action sequences are money. From the very first page, the action and suspense pulls this book forward. It reminded me a lot of what I loved about the earlier books. Scene after scene grips you and it’s impossible to put the book down.
However, as I mentioned, I think I was more critical about this book more because it’s one of my favorites and I really wanted Holly’s book to shine. That being said, Nick Andris turned out to the perfect hero for her. Although Nick is a bit cold in the beginning as he is driven by his dark need for revenge, his hang-ups are pushed aside as the true romance begins. I would have loved to get more out of Nick’s character since the story starts out with him being very wary of everyone. I didn’t feel like we knew him well before the action started. And then there was no time after.
One thing I loved about Clare’s writing was the attention to detail. In all honestly, I felt like some of that was missing from this book. Some scenes were highly detailed and others seemed to gloss over things that I would have loved to explore some more. As a result, I didn’t think it was all very consistent. I also do wonder if that’s just because I wanted more from this book and wanted to like it a lot.
So despite those minor things, SEDUCTION GAME is still a wonderful installment to the series. While it doesn’t match the first few books that I hold above all others, it is one of my favorite stories that Clare has put out recently.

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
