Games People Play is challenging book. Some of the characters were nuanced, but artificially, so was the Madame of the male prostitute business. The hero's martyr-based motivations to be a prostitute weren't really that well developed. He was an architect and his sister was a paraplegic. He really needed to quit his job and have sex for money to provide for her?
I wasn't sold on him as a good match for the heroine. I think it had some challenging concepts and I wished I liked it more, but I felt largely unsatisfied at the end. I didn't think that the hero had really worked through all his issues. He was still pretty messed up, if you ask me. This was an ok read to me, but that's my opinion.
