You’d think the masks would come off once the ball drops at the New Year’s masquerade but, tossing caution to the wind, Liam and Maci decide to have a bit of fun by continuing to keep their faces hidden from each other during a night full of games and passion.

Get to know these two game-playing lovers before they even know each other in The Wager, a prequel to the new novel in the Playing Games series, Game Changer.

Note: This contemporary romance novella is an optional read in the Playing Games series and contains adult situations meant for ages 18+.
~My Thoughts~
I actually feel like you should read this one first before reading the first book, Game Changer, in the series. The flow of the stories would be stronger and you'd be able to connect even more to the characters! I thought this night brought a bit of mystery to Game Changer but honestly it doesn't because you find out quickly what happened that night so I wished I read this one first. I think it would have made Game Changer that much more enjoyable.
I couldn't wait to jump into The Wager after finishing the first book in the series! Maci and Liam's story is cute! Maci's friend Sky invites her to a New Years party to get out of the house because she's one that would rather stay inside. She seems like the antisocial type however she has complete confidence and I absolutely loved that! Breaking the forms of stereotypes is a big part of this series giving this a fresh voice for me! So when the party begins Maci falls in lust with Liam's piercing blue eyes and after to getting to know each other, all but their names, she decides to have a little fun by making a bet on Super Smash Brothers.
Overall I feel like Mrs. Folsom could actually combine these two, I think it would make this even better! I don't really think there needs to be a prequel for Game Changer, I believe it could all be one story. It all just flows perfectly that I don't see why not. Other than that and how I felt during the sex scene some of the paragraphs needed to be rearranged, I truly enjoyed this! Even though I still have some questions that need to be answered, hopefully in book two. 
Sweet Readings Everybody!
