If this wasn't one of the shortest books I've ever read then I might have DNf'd it. What is sad is that the book has one of the more interesting premises but was so insanely rushed that it couldn't have even begun to be developed. It was a skeleton of what it could be.. which oddly seems a little fitting with the cover. Either way I felt we were left with the bones of what could have been something great. For those of you new to G. Bailey's work.. this is not the norm, though she writes fast paced books often its not usually this fast paced. There is no world building, we are just thrown in here willy nilly, sink or swim. There isn't really any backstory other than thrown in tidbits to try and fill some holes here and there. There was no time for character development or even for the story to fully develop into anything, however, smut... there was plenty of that, and sappy insta love with no real adversity.

Thrown into the middle of this game.. with no real backstory of how the game actually started.. apparently humans are captured and forced to participate for witches who want to have a few minutes contact with the dead. This game can be deadly and requires great sacrifice on the human's behalf... Mila our FMC is saved from one group of witches only to be used by another, one of which happens to be some random guy she went to grade school with.. who she doesn't even remember.. even though hes apparently her soul mate... The Hex coven, 3 brothers, decide to use Mila to win the games in order to summon their brother to identify his killer so they can get revenge. A super rushed tiny adventure with lots of smut and no real depth ensues..4

Luckily it is a fast read.. so .. there is that.. This is also a standalone so what you see is what you get. If your looking for some explanations then your looking for too much...
