Wicked Games - kindle ebook by A.D. Justice


Wicked Games is a novel that combines love, lies, loyalty, betrayal, life and death - and of course, hot steamy romance.  The characters are life-like, with flaws, quirks and real emotions.  Brianna is not the typical damsel-in-distress.  She loves fiercely, and to protect those she loves, she makes sacrifices others wouldn't dare.  

Noah isn't the typical romance-story hero who reluctantly falls in love.  His love, loyalty and dedication are deep and palpable to the reader throughout the story.  While this is not a military romance, Noah and the Steele Security brothers' military background is integral to the bonds they've established with Brianna. 

Brief Synopsis
Investigative reporter Brianna Tate has stumbled upon the story of a lifetime but she has no idea it will change her entire life. When the story thrusts her into a web of lies that puts her life in danger, she has to choose between seeing the man she loves destroyed or giving up her whole life to enter WITSEC.  After three years of living someone else's life, everything changes when her true identity and location is discovered.  She is forced to leave protective custody to save the man she still loves.    

Noah Steele owns a successful business with Steele Security, providing security escorts for the nations' top officials, wealthy elitists, and high-profile visiting dignitaries.  What he keeps from everyone in his life is that he never fully recovered from losing Brianna.  He shares a bed with other women but never his heart.  Noah's life now revolves around his work until the night he stumbles upon an intruder in his house and learns that intruder is actually his long-dead love, Brianna.  

With her sudden reappearance, Noah discovers the passion that once fueled their relationship is still there, burning hotter than ever.   However, even love can't erase the betrayal Noah experiences after learning that Brianna faked her death and has been in hiding this whole time.  Noah must decide if he can accept that she betrayed him and caused him the worst pain in his life. Learning that she has been alive and seemingly fine without him may be more than he can take.   

Brianna's relationships with everyone at Steele Security is teetering precariously on a ledge.  Loyalty and honesty is key with the men who once looked at her as a sister but now openly distrust her.  Can they work together to identify the real threat, save his business and their own lives?  Or will Noah lose the only woman he's ever loved, twice in one lifetime, in his fight against the tangled web of lies and betrayal that surround him?
