Dirty Wife Games by Clarissa Wild
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
I was given an arc of this in exchange for an honest review. I have given it 3.5 stars.
These are the reviews I hate to write. Having loved Dirty Bride Games I jumped at the chance to read Dirty Wife Games but for me it just didn't hold the same appeal as it's predecessor. I struggled to get into the story and found myself skim reading several parts but the last 20-ish % I did actually find myself thinking what a clever concept the story actually was as all the pieces started clicking into place. I love these twisty turny kinda stories where everything isn't quite as it seems.
Hyun was my least favourite characters in Wicked Bride Games and unfortunately my opinion hasn't changed. I'm still feeling pretty meh about her.
Wicked Wife games was well....It was bizarre to say the least. Several aspects of this story just didn't sit right. Her ability to just accept a stalker was a crazy notion but obviously makes a whole lot of sense once you read it.
I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either. The style of writing was a bit jumpy as it moved between the past and the present and different character POVs and I felt that the despite the twist at the end, the beginning and middle were rather lackluster. It just didn't excite me in ways I had expected it to.
Very unfortunate this story wasn't me as I couldn't wait to read it. However don't let my review put you off. If you enjoyed Wicked Bride Games you may just find that this is a book for you.
