Playing For Keeps (The Game, #2)

Kings & Queens - Courtney Vail I thought this book was AMAZING, the plot had me hooked and would not let me go until the very end and even when I had finished I just could not stop thinking about it. Majesty Alistair is just an average teenage girl with a normal life until she over hears some of her fellow students planning a church massacre. Unable to go to the police, majesty feels she only has one choice – to discover herself who she overheard and to stop the massacre before it happens. Little by little majesty discovers that everything is much more complex than just a church shooting, and she finds herself pulled into a deadly game where even her closest friends are suspect.I loved how every single character was complex and multi layered as this is something I find lacking in most books I read. Majesty is probably one of the best female characters I have had the pleasure of reading about. She is gutsy, smart and brave, and is far less idiotic than most female heroines – though she still has her moments. The plot was confusing but thrilling and kept me guessing throughout. As soon as you think you understand what is going on a new piece of information is revealed which rips apart all you thought you knew . Like the rest of the book the romance isn’t simple either, forget love triangles, this is more like a love pentagon.The ending was absolutely amazing though I will admit that I yelled out NOOO at one particular moment. I thought it was amazing how the author makes you feel for each and every character, even the ‘bad’ ones. This book has everything; suspense, action, romance, and some moments might even make you cry.I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read a book that isn’t just a simple, easy (and boring) read. However don’t read this book after having a manicure as the suspense will have you biting your nails off. I am eagerly looking forwards to reading more books by Courtney Vail, especially Sapphire Reign, the sequel to Kings and Queens that is set 10 years later.*This book was provided to me by the publisher for review.
