Review: Wicked Games by A.D. Justice


Investigative reporter Brianna Tate has stumbled upon the story of a lifetime but she has no idea it will change her entire life. When the story thrusts her into a web of lies that puts her life in danger, she has to choose between seeing the man she loves destroyed or giving up her whole life to enter WITSEC. After three years of living someone else's life, everything changes when her true identity and location is discovered. She is forced to leave protective custody to save the man she still loves. 
Noah Steele owns a successful business with Steele Security, providing security escorts for the nations' top officials, wealthy elitists, and high-profile visiting dignitaries. What he keeps from everyone in his life is that he never fully recovered from losing Brianna. He shares a bed with other women but never his heart. Noah's life now revolves around his work until the night he stumbles upon an intruder in his house and learns that intruder is actually his long-dead love, Brianna. 
With her sudden reappearance, Noah discovers the passion that once fueled their relationship is still there, burning hotter than ever. However, even love can't erase the betrayal Noah experiences after learning that Brianna faked her death and has been in hiding this whole time. Noah must decide if he can accept that she betrayed him and caused him the worst pain in his life. Learning that she has been alive and seemingly fine without him may be more than he can take. 
Brianna's relationships with everyone at Steele Security is teetering precariously on a ledge. Loyalty and honesty is key with the men who once looked at her as a sister but now openly distrust her. Can they work together to identify the real threat, save his business and their own lives? Or will Noah lose the only woman he's ever loved, twice in one lifetime, in his fight against the tangled web of lies and betrayal that surround him?
Recommended for readers 18+ due to language, violence and sexual content.

Wow. This book had me staying up late at night to finish!
The story line moves quickly, but never did I feel lost with the plot. A.D. Justice did a great job drawing the emotions of the characters on each page. 

Brianna Tate is a investigating reporter, who became a little too involved in her story. Danger lurks around the corner and she is taken into Witness Protection after being targeted. She is forced to leave her family and love of her life in order to protect him. 

Noah Steele, AKA Reaper, owns his own security company and still has many ties into the military world. His world is turned upside down when he hears that Brianna was killed in a plane crash, never knowing the truth of what happened... until she turns up on his door step three years later...

The danger continues and we are left with a cliff hanger at the end of this one. I love these characters, the band of brothers, and the will to protect their "sister". I can't wait to find out what happens next!!!

*I was gifted a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review*
