Quite honestly, this has to be my favorite book of Nyrae Dawn's. It definitely, opened a lot of doors for her. Since this one, she has written a more New Adult novels. FACADE (Book 2 of the games series) seems to something the critics are enjoying as well as her fans. CHARADE was the first book, but I don't think you have to read it to enjoy the second book.
Nyrae certainly loves character driven stories, and she had a soft spot for bad boys. So if you have a hankering for something new to read especially and e-read, you should really check out her stuff.
