I really enjoyed the first book in this series (Wicked Games), a Survivor-like romance, so I picked this one up. Playing Games is, like the first one, a reality-show based romance. This one is based on The Amazing Race. I liked the fast paced romance while trying to complete tasks so they wouldn't get booted. Katy and Liam were good characters. Abby and Dean (from book 1) make an appearance in this one as well. This book had a good mix of characters to cheer on and others to boo at. Recommended if you like reality shows.
