Review by: Fern

Dixie Sinclair spends her days toiling over role playing kits in her high-class adult boutique. Allergic to commitment, she considers sexy Jase Cavannaugh to be the perfect partner for some fun and games. After all, he’s just as noncommittal. The man radiates sexual charisma – she’d be crazy not to.

Jase leaps at the chance to play with the little minx. Something about peeling back the layers of her personality and finding the really Dixie Sinclair appeals to him on a primal level. He believes in working hard and playing harder, and she definitely needs someone that can not only quench her sexual appetite, but match her wit.

Neither Dixie nor Jase is prepared for the chemistry their play ignites; and each role play pushes the envelope on not only their darkest fantasies, but their sworn belief that love is a four letter word.

Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable.Anal play/intercourse, dubious consent, ménage (m/f/m), voyeurism.

A reader warning–when you snag your own copy of Sex Games, be sure to proceed with extreme caution. This book should come with its very own burn notice! Cara Carnes has written a tale of sexual exploration and trust that you simply have to read. It’s hot, it’s sexy, and it will make you squirm like a worm on a hook. Never has role-play been so sweet…or so tempting.

The protagonists, Dixie and Jase, endear themselves to the reader immediately. They are both self professed “players” that avoid commitment and emotional ties to their lovers. It’s about enjoying the time and play in the bedroom, getting the most from the sex provided, and leaving before the night ends with no hard feelings. This works for them so much that when they meet, a gauntlet is thrown. Neither believes they will find exactly what they are searching for in the other, and they will push the boundaries and limits to prove it. Of course, a connection is made almost immediately. The remainder of the story will test their resolve to remain unattached, and force each of them to step outside of their comfort zone in order to nurture what may be the most intense and rewarding relationship they’ve ever known.

I loved the role-play scenes, and felt they brought a deeper level of understanding to Dixie and Jase. When they take turns creating unique encounters, and each one only gets hotter and more risqué, you begin waiting with a baited breath to see what happens next. The choice to introduce other people into these play scenes is also well done and artfully plotted, and works beautifully to add depth to the possessiveness both Dixie and Jase don’t want to experience, but eventually, can no longer deny. That is the theme and heart of the story. How do you catch someone that isn’t even aware they want to be caught? And better yet, how do you answer that question when the person is yourself?

This one needs to be on that all important TBR list, without question. The story, characters, and those ultra-steamy play scenes will have you hot and bothered for days. The secondary characters are also equally memorable, and I hope to see one or two of them with their own stories in the future. I loved Sex Games, and I’m certain others will as well.
