In an underground club, a high-ranking public official spends his secret nights indulging in fantasies as exciting as they are depraved. For a seductive employee of the Dungeon, it’s her job to fulfill them. But she’s playing a far more dangerous game—one of blackmail, politics, and murder that reaches into the shadow world of the Ghostwalkers, and the creation of a spectacular, one-of-a-kind new weapon of defense.
But when a dictator makes his own catastrophic moves, the Ghostwalkers have no choice but to bring in two major players—a man and woman both driven by passion and revenge. Both expendable. Both with nothing left to lose.
2.5 Flat stars
I am going to keep this short, and to the point. The two words I would use for Samurai game is Flat, and boring! I don't know what happened, but this book was so off for me. I didn't connect to the lead couple, or the plot. Sam had no real personality . I didn't feel like I got to know him at all. Azami was just Meh. She totally pissed me off when she went undercover as a high priced escort, and lets one of Dr. Whitney's flunkies, Frank , feel her up, suck on her fingers, and then she felt up his cock.....Really? I don't care if she was undercover it was disrespectful to Sam especially since she didn't even bother to tell Sam she was going undercover, and she never even tells him about the frank thing !
I didn't invest in their relationship at all, most likely because they didn't really have much of one. The book was repetitive, and tedious. A ton of " I am not good enough to love." "You are great, and I love you." " You can't love me Whitney messed me up, and I am nothing." "You are everything to me." Blah Blah Blah! I fell asleep at one point. The love making was pages long. Pages!!! Then there was the super long detailed ritual bath. Really I get it she washed him I didn't need such a in depth description of it. Nor did I need to know pages about Nano technology, every weapon under the damn sun, or a ton of Military Jargon. OMG and don't even get me started on the end fight with Dr. Whitney. The book builds up this big fight. OMG Whitney is sending men to kidnap the babies and almost all the men are away on a mission. OMG what are they going to do. Dun dun dun. Yea it's 4 men and Azami and Saber take them out in like 2 second talk about anti-climactic. Whatevs! I am on to the next book and I hope to GOD it's better than this one!
