Q: Who would stalk Isis?
A: Somebody with a deathwish.
Isis always knew her bank robbers were ruthless, dangerous, and brilliant. After all, they take their names from gods. They’ve eluded law enforcement agencies across the globe. And with just the crook of a little finger they’re able to bend her to their every kinky desire.
But it isn’t until the threatening letter arrives for her that she realizes just how ruthless, dangerous and brilliant her three men are.
The stalker’s threats unleash the robbers’ most primal and possessive instincts as they blaze a path of destruction through the criminal underground. The culprit lands in a prison hospital before the outlaws can get their hands on him, but at least Isis is safe. Or is she? Can the robbers let go of their obsession with banks long enough to recognize the danger swirling around her?
This series has been one of the most surprising books I’ve read this year so far. I really love these characters so much and the story is pretty damn great. I read the books all one after the other, it was so addicting! And I wonder, will there be more books? I do hope so!
The Deeper Game, the third book in the series kicked things up a notch when a stalker threatens to ruin everything Isis has build with the god pack. In the meanwhile Isis tries to convince her guys that they don’t have to keep robbing banks but they are hell-bent on getting revenge. When Isis receives an intimidating letter, Zeus, Odin and Thor really show how fierce and even kind of scary they can be. Throw in a lot of kinky sex and you have one hell of a book!
So this book was really intense. Like REALLY! There isn’t just the excitement of planning to rob a big bank but also the threat of Isis’ stalker. While reading I could never guess who exactly it would be. I mean, it could’ve been anyone so I was a bit surprised by who it was and how screwed up and psycho he turned out to be. Isis as always was a great character. I genuinely like her because she’s so funny, honestly loves her three guys and just wants them all to be a family.
And what can I say about the guys that I haven’t said before? I love them ALL! To be honest, I never quite read a book like this about bank robbers and never thought them as hot but damn, I changed my mind the moment I read the first book. Zeus, Odin and Thor are some of the most sexy male characters I have read about, no question there! They were fiercely protective of Isis and quite agressive in this book. I just adore them!
Overall, The Deeper Game was sizzling hot, with fantastic writing, a great plot and just awesome. I had a blast reading it and it’s one of my favorites now (as are the other books). So highly recommended!
