My Rating: 4.5 Stars
A Wicked Game is an utterly enjoyable read from the first chapter. It just draws you in until you're completely under the spell of all the romance.
All the tropes here..
a long family feud,
frienemies to lovers,
MMC home after years fighting in the military
and I’m sure I’m missing one or two,
.. just worked really well together. I adored this one (this entire series is so wonderfully fun!) and liked reading it so much ❤️reading this while anxious, really helped redirect my attention - this one just made me smile throughout because it was such a wholly loveable read and was exactly what I needed after a run of more serious books.
Harriet and Morgan were absolutely perfect together, there’s a lot of friendship, history, and longing in these pages and the chemistry between the two is fantastic. The spice level was nice, albeit in a limited capacity.
This one would be an excellent cozy, hibernating until the New Year is over with cocoa, Netflix, and books read. It’s utterly romantic, swoony, and a delightful long weekend book.
I love a well done and fun historical romance, and Ms. Bateman absolutely knows how to write them.
I can’t wait for the next one!
