Playing Their Games is another outstanding multicultural fiction tale from bestselling author, Kiki Swinson. This is the second prequel to her Notorious duology, which I haven’t read…yet. I did read the first prequel, and it was awesome! After reading prequel one, Playing With Fire I immediately picked up this one
Yoshi Lomax has finished her college education and is now an intern at a prestigious New York law firm. Her previous naïveté now borders on childishness. What trouble will her actions bring into her life?
Playing Their Games is told through the alternating viewpoints of Yoshi and her new love interest, Troy. This method of revealing the story is satisfactorily managed through chapter headers. Yoshi still seems younger than her years and is developing a habit of irrational thinking. This prequel was a little slower developing than the previous one, and I dropped one star for this reason, but it still held my attention. This was an interesting read. I rate it 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it to all readers readers of good adult fiction, especially fiction with multicultural interest.
My thanks to Kensington Books, Dafina, 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.
