Playing For Keeps (The Game, #2)
Emma Hart
Surrender - Aimee Laine As a Mimic, albeit a weak one, Lily Crane can look however she wants. Unfortunately the ability has some disadvantages, as Lily discovers when her current face causes a case of mistaken identity which will force her to face the past she has tried so hard to forget.Cael Alderidge would go to the ends of the earth to keep Lily safe, and with a Dangerous Mimic wanting her for unknown reasons; Cael must be willing to do anything to keep the woman he loves safe.This book throws you straight into the action from the very first page and you will be hooked until the very last. Aimee Laine definitely has the recipe for a very good paranormal romance; surrender has a perfect balance of action, romance, intrigue and mystery. The characters have an incredible amount of depth to them, especially Lily. As a mimic her powers are very weak but she has an inner strength and determination that is remarkable considering her tortured past. Cael is the perfect love interest: smart, strong, sexy and protective of Lily without being too possessive. The secondary characters are just as amazing, my favourite was Maggie and I am hoping we will get to see a lot more of her in a future book.The twists and turns in the plot kept me guessing throughout and there were points in the book where I could barely stand the suspense of wanting to know what Roy was up to. I loved the romance between Lily and Cael though I did keep wondering why they weren’t already together after knowing each other for so long and clearly being perfect each other. However I suppose that’s life, not knowing what you have until it is torn away from you.Overall an incredible book and I can’t wait for the third in the Mimics of Rune series.
