Since marrying her college sweetheart, Vanessa has learned to deal with life with a professional athlete - the groupies, the paparazzi, and the unchecked ego of a man the sports world puts on a pedestal. When Laila James, self-proclaimed "Golden Goddess," sets her sights on Marcus and shops a reality show based on their affair - and then a dangerous stalker threatens his family - Vanessa turns to her best friend Nia to save her marriage and her life.

I have to be honest to say I liked the story, just not all of it. It didn't catch my attention until the last 2 hours of the book. The beginning was a lot of details I didn't care to know. I know it was the same narrator for all three characters but when she did Layla's voice I was so annoyed. I was distracted several times which isn't normal for me when I'm listening to a good book. I wouldn't recommend it but everyone has different opinions.
A total book geek who wishes she had the gift of writing!!
This books starts off very slow. It sounds like another basketball wives storyline. The mystery made it better even though I figured out one of the culprits. It got better as I listened.
It was a nice ending. Doesn't leave you hanging
The Narrator was not very animated. I felt like she was reading to me instead of acting out the parts. There were a few times I got confused on which character I was listing too
For the most part, I really enjoyed this book. The storylines twisted and turned and kept me interested. I would read other books by this author.
Only thing that really got on my nerves is having to give the name of every item that they are wearing. Please just say I'm putting on my tennis shoes or pink sweater . Who cares about what the name brand is!!!
I enjoyed listening to Games Divas Play. This was well worth the credit used to purchase the book.
Doubt I'll read another book in this series. Glad this one was on sale. The minute details of every piece of clothing or accessories for every single character as well as every single sexual encounter detracted from the story. Too many distracting details took away from the story.
This is the first time I listened to a book by this author and the first time I heard the narrator. I was very skeptical but pleasantly surprised. The story had a great plot, characters that were developed, and drama! I think you should give it a listen. You wont be disappointed.
