Peek Inside Wicked Games

When actress Stacy Roberts discovers her sex-on-a-stick ex Ian Ford at her Hollywood Halloween blow-out, she decides to show the cocky homicide detective exactly what he’s been missing. But she’s not the only one plotting revenge, and Ian’s the only one who can save her.

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…

Previously released as part of the Lovers Unmasked anthology. Now available individually!

5 Stars! Loved it!! The perfect novella!

If you haven't read Lover Undercover, you might want to do that first to get a better grasp on the character relationships.

I adored Ian and Stacy in that book and was hoping they would get the ...more

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.

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.

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.

Stacy Roberts is finally able to tell all the naysayers in her ...more

This is the 2nd book in the McCade Brothers series, focussing on Detective Ian Ford, work colleague of Trevor from Lover Undercover.

Wicked Games was a fun, sexy, action packed read!

If you are looking to dip your toe into the McCade brothers series without the commitment of the full stories than this is the book for you. I guarantee you will want to read all of them by the time you are done. This was my first experience with this ...more

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.

Ms. Beck is a defini ...more

By Nicola March 28, 2014

If you have read Lover Undercover, then this novella is an absolute must read as it focusses on Stacy & Ian, whilst treating us to a little more of Trevor and Kylie.

Short it may be, but this Halloween turns into a true nightmare and Samanthe Beck delivers everything from suspense to sexiness.

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 che ...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

Sooooooo glad that the author did Ian and Stacy’s story. It was a quick read and honestly really good. It bad all the bells and whistles and then some. I think finishing the story that started for these two in Kylie’s book was good. Picking up right where they left off. I loved the VIP room. I loved ...more

5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 A short, sharp, fun read, with good character development and action.

I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this novella given I didn’t warm to Stacy when she was introduced in Lover Undercover. Samanthe Beck really redeems Stacy here and makes you fall for the sexy Ian over jus ...more

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. Th ...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. I really loved Stacy and Ian together in Lover Undercover so it was great to get more of them. I also enjoyed seeing Kylie and Trevor too. And of ...more

Stacy walked away from Ian after he asked her to move in. Now 6 weeks later she has a stalker and Trevor and Ian show up at the Halloween party. Ian doesn't realize she knows it's him when she leads him to a VIP room for a smoking hot night. Ian has been patient waiting for stacy t ...more

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 have t ...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 wi ...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

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
