This book had a dark undercurrent to it and felt palpable through the pages. Knowing that something was there, kept me captivated and I couldn't put the book down! This book is a little darker than previous Tracy Wolff books I've read, but at the same time, that was part of the allure. I wasn't sure what was going to happen but was completely lost in their story. There were so many things happening around Ian and Veronica that lead them to their time together. He had an agenda, which we the reader knew most of, and she was a complete mystery. We saw bits and pieces of her (as Ian did), and had to put the puzzle together.
This book was nice and long and had a way of gripping you. I was completely sucked into Ian and Veronica's twisted world. They appear to be exactly what the other person needed, but it's quite deep. There are many twists and turns as they start this journey and things aren't exactly what they seem. I did figure a few things out before they came to light but this story was one that grabbed hold and didn't want to let me go. And trust me, I didn't want to let it go either. This book was absolutely delicious and I wish I could read it for the first time again. It's dark, sad, sweet, thrilling, sexy and I couldn't get enough of it. I don't want to say too much and give it away, but I HIGHLY recommend this book. It's unexpected and has so much to offer.

Hailed by J. Kenner as an author who “knows how to steam up the pages,” Tracy Wolff delivers a darkly addictive novel of seduction and psychological obsession. The stakes are high in Lovegame, when a movie star with a shattered past meets a man who can either break her or make her whole.
True Crime novelist Ian Sharpe has spent his career writing about serial killers for very personal reasons. For his latest exposé, he is taking on the sadistic madman known as the Red Ribbon Strangler, and when his research leads him to Hollywood’s most private and provocative actress, he will break every rule to uncover her truth.
The daughter of one of Hollywood’s golden couples, chased by paparazzi and treated as a commodity her entire life, Veronica Romero wields her sex appeal like a weapon. She expects Ian to be as easy to control as every other man she’s ever known. But from the beginning, he refuses to fall into line. Mysterious and cool, challenging and just a little bit dangerous, Ian somehow makes her feel safe—even as he digs into the deepest secrets of her life and pushes her to the breaking point.
As raw ecstasy gives way to agonized truths, their dark obsession exposes secrets that have been buried for far too long. Ian wants to tear down her walls and heal the sensual woman underneath. But if Veronica’s learned anything, it’s that the line between pleasure and pain is a narrow one—and when caught between them the only thing that matters is how you play the game.
Lovegame is intended for mature audiences. This ebook includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
