#1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole brings readers the third book of the erotic Game Maker Series, a searing tale of a man racked with dark desires and the beautiful young woman who could sate him at last.

Four Boundless Stars
The third installment of The Game Maker Series follows the youngest brother Dmitri, who isn’t all together sane. His complete and total obsession with Victoria would be freighting in any other circumstances; yet, make him a billionaire, her a con artist and she is going to put up with his crazy, because she need his money.
“I’d rather have an honest madman than a sane liar.”
Victoria struggles with the con from the beginning. She starts to have feelings for Dmitri almost immediately, and her conscious is working against her. She doesn’t want to con him; yet, her family has got themselves into such a bad situation to the point to where they have no other choice. She has to go through with it; no matter what.
This series has been incredibly erotic, and The Player is no exception to that. The sex scenes are downright panty melting. Out of all three books this has been my least favorite, but not by much. I am still giving it 4 Boundless stars. I just like the other two more.
