The Game Never Ends by Zaire Crown is book two in her The Game series, follow-up to Games Women Play. Though part of a series, it reads well as a standalone.
Tuesday Knight, former Detroit hood hustler, now lives in the lap of luxury in an affluent Hollywood suburb, as Tabitha King. She’s a mother of two and wife to the former drug kingpin now known as Marcus King. They’re living and loving big in their new legit life, until the past comes back with a vengeance. Is Tuesday going to be forced to return to her hood persona?
Zaire Crown has created a bit of magic in this continuation to her urban saga. Her characters are strong, vibrant and believable. The urban scenery is utilized to it’s advantage. The dialogue is vivid and has enough humor to occasionally ease the tense interplay. The plot is a contemporary romance melded with urban warfare and a conspiracy theory. This is a story of betrayal, murder, revenge and greed that has you rooting for the bad guys. Or are they the good guys? The ending is shocking and expertly sets up for future installments. There is some explicit content, but it’s totally appropriate for the story. I thoroughly enjoyed The Game Never Ends. I rate it 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to everyone who enjoys multicultural and/or urban fiction.
My thanks to Kensington Books and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
