Spider Game (Ghost Walker Series, Book 12) by Christine Feehan
Synopsis: In the new GhostWalker novel by the #1 New York Timesbestselling author of Viper Game, a trained killer meets his match in a woman whose very kiss can stop a heart.
The Cajun dive in the middle of the godforsaken swamps wasn’t exactly Trap Dawkins’ idea of fun. But the GhostWalker wasn’t there for a good time. He was looking for her. Cayenne. It’s where she found her victims. Poor suckers. Then again, who wouldn’t want to leave a place like this with a woman like her?
It’s not Cayenne’s fault. Locked up, experimented on and never knowing kindness, she was bred this way—with a heart of pure venom. Trap understands her. He survived his own dark past and he shares her desire for getting even. But now Trap’s greatest danger is Cayenne herself. Because what’s inside her is hard to control—especially when it’s aroused by a lover as reckless as Trap.
Review: This wasn’t my favorite in the series. I couldn’t get truly engrossed with the couple. I bordered on disliking Trap. He was an ass and at times too dominant for my taste and she was too understanding of his ass like behavior. He had his sweet moments but it was like he was bipolar; soft and sweet and supportive one minute, aggressive, domineering and sometimes crude in his behavior towards her the next. She at times was dynamic and then other times she was too submissive and didn’t stand up for herself. The conflict in this installment was good; it stood up to the other stories and progressed the plot line of the series well. I just didn’t like him as a character. His jerkitude was different than the priggishness of King in The Rogue Not Taken. With him, he was a jerk but there was still emotional appeal to the relationship. I get why Trap is who he is but at a certain point, he needs to trust in her love and stop testing her, because that is how it felt at times. He was testing her staying power and her love, and she needed to stand up to him and tell him off and she was too submissive for that.
Even though they weren’t my favorite couple, I’m not really into the very dominate male lead, I did still enjoy the latest installment in the GhostWalkers Saga and I am excited to see what happens next. I love the series.
