3.5 Stars. Jen and Nik go through quite the ordeal to be together. Nik agrees to pretend to be Jen's boyfriend on a survival game show so she can snag the host. Whaaaaat? Yup, but before we freak out that our heroine is using our hero to get someone else, know that there is a reasonable paranormal e ...more

This is the third book in the series which combines a contemporary romance with Greek mythology. The intriguing mix of genre works brilliantly in this skilfully written novel where one of the seven Pelaides witches, Jenny, decides to participate in an extreme survival game show - much against the ad ...more

Actual rating 3.5 stars.

I've read the other two books in this series, and really enjoyed both of them, so I was keen to read this when it came up for review. While I definitely enjoyed Jennifer and Nick's story, it's my least favorite of the series so far.

Both were trying to deny the obvious attrac ...more

Jen is one of the seven Pleiades witches, she's pretty determined to find her it guy, the sooner the better. I liked that even though Jen is a powerful descendant of gods, she has dreams and ambitions. She has fears and doubts just like the rest of us. In the beginning Jen is just someone tired of ...more

This book was an easy read, I read it in one sitting. I liked the idea of the survivor show. I just don't get why she was insistent on doing it. She just seemed obsessed. I really did enjoy the games show - extreme survivor..

Playing the Witch’s Game by Zoe Forward is the 3rd book in her Keepers of the Veil series. This series revolves around the seven Pleiades witches, their destined mates who protect them, and the evil that is out to kill them.

Playing the Witch’s Game is the third book in the Keepers of the Veil series and I can honestly say that it is my favorite in the series.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

While I missed the book in between, I've had experience in this world before reading this one. I think this can be read as a standalone if it needs to be, because it is mostly the story of Nikolai (aka Nick) and Jen.

Jen has cast a spe ...more

Another great book in one of my favorite Entangled Covet series.

I can't decide if Nik was strange, or caring, “really?

In this third installment of Zoe Forward’s Keepers of the Veil series, I’m absolutely blown away.

About the author

Zoe Forward

Zoe Forward is a hopeless romantic who can't decide between paranormal and contemporary romance. So she writes both. In addition to being a mom to one rambunctious kindergartner and wife to a conservation ecologist who plans to save all the big cats on the planet, she's a small animal veterinarian caring for all the small furries, although there has been the occasional hermit crab. When she's not typing at her laptop she's tying on a karate belt for her son or cleaning up the newest pet mess form the menagerie that occupies her house. She's madly in love with her globe trotting husband and happiest when he returns to their home base in North Carolina.
