Fatal Games by Lee Anne Jones with Lindsay K. Below & Traci Douglass Release Blitz
Laura Rockford needs that big break that will move her journalism career from fluff pieces to serious news. When she stumbles across a bizarre murder scene in downtown Vegas, she finally gets her chance. Even more so when her older brother spills the beans that could implicate a video game programming genius. For once in her career Laura has a lead that the police don’t know about. She flings herself head-first into digging up everything she can to break the case, oblivious to any personal danger in confronting a possible killer. After all, how hard can it be to wheedle information out of a geeky reclusive computer nerd?
Mike McQuaid is anything but geeky–unless you consider a ruggedly handsome face and a sexy as hell male model body with a computer genius brain geeky. But he is reclusive – he has to be because he has a deep, dark secret and he can’t let anyone get close enough to discover it. Not even the hot little journalist that shows up at his penthouse begging for an interview.
With the body count rising and Laura and Mike’s attraction sizzling out of control, Laura does what any good journalist would do. She digs in even deeper. But she soon discovers that some secrets should stay buried and trusting the wrong person could have consequences much more deadly than just losing her heart.

Fatal Games by Lee Anne Jones
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fatal Games is a romantic mystery full of surprises. It follows Laura, a reporter, who is just trying to get her first big story which just happens to be a string of murders that are based off of a video game. Enter Mike, the creator of said video game. He is a recluse and just wants to be left alone. One thing leads to another and we get some steamy bedroom scenes and a bunch of twists that had me guessing up to the end.
This is my first Lee Anne Jones read, and even though Fatal Games is second in the series it can be read as a stand alone. As stated before it had me guessing and trying go figure out who the killer was and who could be trusted. I enjoyed the twists and mystery of the whole book. I also love me some hot broody males so Mike is perfect. Laura is an alpha female, she can take care of herself and throws herself right in the middle of things. I enjoyed the characters and the story. The writing flowed nicely between the duel POVs and helped with the overall telling of the story. I look forward to reading more of Lee Anne's books.
