Talk about a mystery that draws you in with intrigue and gives you a sneaking view of the ride. All from the prospective of someone who shouldn’t be there, and one who doesn’t want to be. Seeing how a murder can have a ripple effect across Campbell College, and how it plays into the fraternity/sorority life, add in some heated passion between Wolf and Emily that you can’t help but want, and you’ve got some Wicked Games going on. 😉
Even with a few missing details, I couldn’t get enough. I love the deep feeling I get when I read something that has suspense, crime, desire all wound around each other. Emily, the outcast turned sorority sister with a style all her own, is learning who she is and what she wants. Which is the one who should be off limits to her… Wolf. Head of the Skull and Thorns fraternity, has the world at his feet, with the grief of the loss of his friend on his shoulders, when Emily comes in and throws his world into a tail spin. Their back and forth of taunting and teasing is fun and adds to the intrigue of the drama going on around them.
If you are in search of a modern, college twist on the the classic “Who Dun It?” Mystery, then you want to make sure to catch this one.

looking at me askance.

broad-shouldered, he wears his black denim and dark blue tee shirt incredibly
well. He knows it too, judging by his posture. He perches on his stool and
crosses his arms, expectant. Perfectly unkempt sandy blond hair, dark brows
spread wide over the darkest blue eyes I’ve ever seen, a patrician nose, two
incredible cheekbones, and the most expressive lips…

avoided them, truth be told. But this guy is on another level. He is so
dazzling that he could work in television… and bad tv just so
