Twenty years later, they are called back to… Rosey Plantation.
A getaway shared by their parents and… the place they were all found dead.
As they get the house ready to sell, they uncover clues to a game—a handcuff key in a trinket box, eye bolts anchored into the basement wall, silk bindings in unusual places—and discover it wasn’t a retreat but a place to play.
While Emma and Branch find solace in one another, and explore some of their own dark fantasies, mysterious things start happening. Convinced they need to play the erotic game, or end up like their parents, their lives start to unravel.
Some say ghosts can haunt, but when the danger becomes real, they find themselves racing against the clock to find the killer among friends before history repeats itself.
Are you ready to play, Ring around the Rosey?
They all fall down.

So deets…I found this book to be well written. I am not normally a fan of third person narration, but it worked well in this case. I had a small issue with the pace. It is a fairly long book, and I felt that the story got bogged down at times with some unnecessary scenes (more about that below). However, I never lost interest or felt the need to skim. The story itself was interesting and quite unique. It had a great cast of characters (I LOVED Tommy). It had a lot of hot sex scenes. Last, it was all wrapped up in a fantastic (if a bit rushed and far-fetched) ending.
The only other issue I had (apart from the pace) was the hero having a (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) daughter. That aspect didn’t feel organic to the story. She was cute and all that, but for me the hero having a (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) child didn’t work with the overall feel of this book. It just didn’t mesh well with the tone of the plot and rubbed me the wrong way on a more personal pet peeve level. (lol) I think if hero had been (HIGHLIGHT TEXT FOR SPOILER) childless the pace (and to some extent the plot/romance) would have been better and raised this up to a 5 Star rating.However, even with those small issues this was still a cracking good read. And it gets two thumbs up from yours truly.
