After Fifty review: Wicked Game by Mercy Celeste

Publication date: 3rd Sept 2011

If you like your contemporary romance to sizzle then Wicked Game by Mercy Celeste is the book for you. I’m a real sucker for an alpha male with a sporting background and full of testosterone so Wicked Game ticked all the boxes for me.

Childhood enemies (and we all know why little boys really pull little girls pig tails) Cass takes a job as Jaime’s PA. He’s a hot shot American football superstar and she’s feisty and not in the least bit interested in football. The banter between Cass and Jaime was hilarious and their snarky fights were definite fore play as they go from sort of enemies to friends with benefits to lovers. Their burning hot scenes were out of this world fantastic. My favourite part was their phone calls, as Cass is watching the game live on TV Jaime would phone her, talk dirty and end up on camera as the whole world wondered who he was talking to. I also loved that he was her Pepper and made her call him Lord Ironman it really had me laughing.

Wicked Game is a hot escapist read. I loved it.

  1. Lesley I love your blog! I especially love your 'After Fifty' reviews. It's really useful for those of us who don't know which adult contemp. books to read next :)

    Can I make a suggestion though if I may? Would you consider having all the after fifty posts in the sidebar or something, so that we can access them whenever you post one, and we can access your older after fifty reviews too? Just a suggestion though :)

    As I said..Love your blog! Tasnim xx
