Game of Chances was an interesting storyline. It could have been, so much better if it hadn't been so all over the place. To few explanations during the book had me guessing and confused. I had no idea what I was reading really till close to the end of the book. If the storyline had been smoother in the telling it would have been a good book.
The few loves scenes were choppy and though they were hot and sensual they didn't carry the story.
If your into suspense and agents you might want to give this one a try.
