The gripping follow up to Partners (Fire & Lies -One). Be sure to read Partners first.
Be careful whom you trust…
It’s something I thought I knew but with Chloe Donovan, all of my reasons seems to fly out the window the moment I’m around her.
Blinded by lust, persuaded by love. I hedged my bets on our forever. Twice. And both times, I lost. She’s gone. And once again, she’s ruined my life.
Stuck helping a federal agent by the name of Drake Jefferson, I’m biding my time until I can find where she is.
I won’t be giving up my partner in crime to the authorities. I’ll be dealing out my own brand of justice, and when I’m done, I don’t care if I rot in prison for it.
Chloe Donovan had better start sleeping with one eye open. Because I’m coming for her.
She played me.
I let her in, and she played me. If she sees me. She’d better run.
I won’t be trusting her a third time.
Played was a great 5 star read.
Played picks up where Partners left off. Aiden wakes up in the hospital handcuffed to the bed with Drake and Caitlin in his room waiting to talk to him. Aiden is hurt and furious with what Chloe has done, he will get his revenge.
They say there’s a thin line between love and hate, and I’d say a bullet pushes a man to cross it.
Drake and Caitlin are working the robbery case and are determined to solve the case. They offer a deal to Aiden that he can’t refuse. He want’s out of the cuffs so this is his only option at the moment. Of course he pushes their buttons to the max. He takes off and finds Chloe and they have a quite the discussion. Definitely not how he had planned it.
We also get a glimpse into Drake and Caitlin’s relationship as partners. There seems to be more between them and Aiden quickly picks up on it and uses that to his advantage as well.
Things are going to get way more complicated. In his eyes, it’s only a matter of time before they lose control.
Things get even more complicated and intense as the story moves forward. Aiden continues to have love/hate thoughts about Chloe. There are more twists and secrets revealed. I really enjoyed all of the secondary characters, they added a great element to the story. I had some LOL moments with Aiden and the things he would pull on Drake and Caitlin. The ending was great, definitely not what I expected at all. I was pleasantly surprised. Make sure you read book one, Partners before Played. I was lucky enough to have both books in hand so I didn’t have to wait to see what happened in Played. Thank you Lilliana Anderson for a great read. I will definitely be reading more from this author.
