Review- The Games He Plays

The Games He Plays
By: Michael Wellington
Release Date: June 2nd, 2020
Publisher: Self-published

When I received the copy of The Games He Plays I wasn’t sure what to expect. Reviewing the synopsis of the book I was glad to see this was right up my alley, being a romantic suspense.

The book started off, not slow, but it didn’t jump right in either. I wasn’t grasped from page one. I do appreciate the author’s writing style and the smooth transition from the start of the story to the end. I will say some parts were more telling than showing but given how the story unfolded I’m not really complaining. Understanding Jennifer better was a great help to me as I moved through the plot.

I did find the strange dreams Jennifer has in the story to be tiptoeing the line into the supernatural/horror landscape but that wasn’t a problem for me and I found I enjoyed it. Still, most of the story is firmly in the romantic suspense, mystery and thriller genres so if you enjoy those genres you will enjoy this tale as well.

With so many twists and turns this is a well written debut novel and one that is indeed a quick and enjoyable read. Thank you to the author Michael Wellington for the copy of the book.

About author

Brittney Soban

Brittney is a writer, reader and general lover of all things that end up printed on a page. With a few published poems and a lot of unpublished stories and novels she spends her days doing a nine to five job while wishing she was home working on the worlds she loves to create. As “punishment”, her and her brothers were banned from watching television for a week, leading to Brittney deciding that the free books at the library were better than TV and, in a very Matilda fashion, she took home loads of books every day and has never looked back. A reader of all types of literature, she will read practically anything put in front of her as long as something within it, no matter how small, sparks her interest. Give her high fantasy, science fiction, mystery, it doesn’t matter, but her love does lie within the fantasy and YA genres. A series junkie on top of everything else, she picks and chooses when to begin a series based on how many standalone books also await her attention in her to be read pile. Once she starts a series she will read every installment available back to back until she finishes a series or is forced to wait for the next publication. Called a book dragon by her boyfriend, the term is fitting as she owns more books than anything else and is quite sure her obituary will state she died under an avalanche of books. She truly wouldn’t have it any other way.
