When a battle of wills becomes a game of lust, one wrong move could be fatal.
Actress Stacy Roberts is ready to ride her rising star straight to Hollywood’s A-list. All she needs is the famous Hollywood Hedonism party (check), one very naughty angel costume (check), and a few drinks to get her sexy swagger back (check, check). Tonight, she is not aching for her hot, hard-bodied ex. Or worrying about the threatening letters signed by “Your Worst Nightmare.”
For Detective Ian Ford, “nightmare” doesn’t begin to cover it. Whatever demons prompted Stacy to cut and run have him tied up in knots. Worse, his ex is dressed to kill any man with a pulse, and Ian is seeing red. If Stacy wants trouble, she’ll find it. Only Ian’s going to make damned sure that the only trouble she gets is with him.
There are no rules. They either both win, or they both lose. But this time, there’s an extra player—one who’s determined to make sure this is the very last game Stacy plays…

I really enjoyed this one. I loved that Ian never wavered in his love in Stacy. I loved that not once was he tempted to try and move on or forget her. I like suspense and it had that in spades.
Safe with the exception that kept me from rating five stars.

First of all, Wicked Games is a standalone but it contains some spoilers relating to the first book, Lover Undercover. For that reason, I strongly recommend you read Lover Undercover first.

I put my day on hold and read this in one sitting. I was super pleased to read Ian and Stacy's story from Lover Undercover. I'm thrilled I got to read their sexy, fun story. Catching up with Kylie and the hotter than hot Trevor, also from Lover Undercover is always a good thing.

Another fantastic book by one of my favorite authors! This read is super-sexy and I love the fun, sarcastic banter between the two main characters. Stacy makes me laugh with the mouth she has on her, and Ian is just a panty-melting, smoking-hot hero. As usual, another terrific read with loads of... ...more
Very hot, short story
My new favorite author for entangled short stories. I love the way this author writes, the style is tight but flowing (lol) but packs a lot within the short length of the story. Great reads. ...more
Very sexy, well written and funny. When I wasn't laughing, I was looking over my shoulder to make sure the kids weren't in the room! ...more
Another great Entangled Novella
In Wicked Games we are treated to Ian’s partner Trevor and his comical one-liners. Trevor and Ian are police officers who just happen to be dating twin sisters, although Ian split up from Stacy a month ago, and is currently working on getting them back together.
Why I waited so long to read this novella, I don't know. But it was the right dose of a sexy. Short, sweet and to the point.
Ian and Stacey are introduced in Lover Undercover where we get a glimpse of how their relationships starts. In Wicked Games, we get the grovel aspect of their relationship.... ...more
I liked this novella better than I did Lover Undercover. The romance and the suspense were mixed well throughout the story and didn’t seem overly forced.

wicked games was another fantastic book
This is the second book in the series and it's about Kylie's sister Stacey! It was a quick read but also one you don't want to miss. I can't wait to check out the next book in the series! Maybe Trevor's brothers?? Check this out and you will not be let down!... ...more
I loved every moment of this novella. The tension between Ian and Stacy, the shmexy memories since the two of them are not together and the mystery/action aspect. Samanthe Beck knows how to write these Brazen books and honestly, she's got me hooked. If she writes it, I will read it.
Now I just hav... ...more
Ian and Stacey were totally different. Stacey fall for Ian right from the start, when Ian was trying to solve a murder. Stacey and her sister Kylie traded places because Stacey got hurt at work. Stacey was afraid of falling in love with Ian because of her past. Can't wait to see what happens next... ...more
I wasn't too sure about Stacy's story. In the first book, her and Ian's relationship seemed pretty random. This short story filled in the missing information. While I'm not 100% sold on their romance, this was a cute read to pass the time. ...more
Awesome quick read.
I really liked this book. It held my attention and I felt the connection between characters. Stacey and Ian were hot! A great short read with love and an unexpected twist. It was definitely worth it!! ...more
I liked it.
Even though I didn't really like Stacy, I enjoyed this book mostly because there's angst in it and she got hurt. I loved it when the heroine got hurt and the Hero went ballistic. Adorable.
Looking forward to read Samanthe Beck's other books. ...more
*3.75* Hot short read, with a side of suspense. I didn't quite get Stacy for pushing Ian away, but it did make for some interesting angst and hot sexual encounter.
If you don't have much time and want to squeeze a sexy read in between, this is a good bet. ...more
