Partner Games

Clementine and Georgie were twins who were in the World Race games. Clementine was the nerdy twin and Georgie was the model. The two could not be more unalike but they would do anything for each other. Together they will have to go through the challenges and figure out who to trust within the game.

Partner Games is the last book in the series Games by Jessica Clare. I enjoyed this book.

I thought Clementine’s character was great. She was very nerdy and unsure of herself but she had guts and would do what was needed, especially for her sister. I didn’t like that Clementine was overlooked a lot, at least until Swift comes into the picture. Swift was another player in the game and he was all about Clementine. He had to keep his mind on the game but it had been hard as he was lusting after her. I liked that a romance between them started. It was lustful but sweet at the same time. They were a pair that you wanted to cheer for.

There will be a touchy subject, rape, that had happened to Georgie in the not too distant past, which I had a feeling about. She had showed all the traits of a person who had been abused. You felt for her and hoped that she would be whole again. I was thankful that Jessica Clare wrote in the character Plate who was a great match for Georgie, someone who will let her be the woman she wanted.

I thought this was a solid series from Jessica Clare and have enjoyed these characters.

Playing Games

Katy Short was only at the audition to help her brother but she will quickly be paired up with her brother for the reality tv show that was a race. Katy will be happy with the money that came with the show but things will get out of hand especially when her partner changes from brother to rock star.

Playing Games is the second book to the series Games by Jessica Clare. This series is clearly inspired by classical reality tv shows that are still very popular. This one was very much based on the Amazing Race and I really enjoyed it. I thought it was a great follow up to the series.

Katy was a fantastic character. She was very genuine and I liked that as the race started she got that competitive edge. I also liked that she found something real in a reality tv show. The romance reader in me was cheering for Katy and Liam and hoping that they would find a happy ending. Liam’s character was a rock star that just wanted to write music. He was stuck on this show but he will be surprised by Katy and surprised that he found a connection with her.

The one thing that drove me was crazy was Brodie, Katy’s older brother. He pretty much betrayed his sister at every turn. Yet she tried to help her brother. If Brodie is in another story within the series I hope he isn’t such a villain, but more than likely he would be.

I am reading Ice Games next.
