Blog Post: Playing the Witch's Game (Keepers of the Veil #3) by Zoe Forward

Pleiades witch Jennifer Marcos is certain that the host of Extreme Survivor is her soulmate. All she has to do is find a fake boyfriend, get on the show, and voila! She'll have her destiny. Unfortunately, she has to rely on ex-Russian spy Nikolai Jovec's six-foot-something of gorgeous, infuriating hotness. To make matters worse, the electric attraction between Jen and Nikolai is hotter than ever. But the only way Nikolai can protect Jen is by hiding the identity of her true Destined...him.

I am a big fan of the Keepers of the veil series, but I am not sure what to make of this book. This review is me trying to decide what my feelings are about it. This is a stand alone book, but in the end I couldn't help but feel that it ended in a cliffy way. I want the next book now! I don't know whose story is going to be, but I hope for some answers.

After reading the blurb I was expecting more angst and a lot more jealousy from Nick's side, but what I got was a heroine whines making the wrong choices and was begin me to slap some sense into her. It was a little tiring, to be honest. There is a balance between the romance and the rest of the things that are happening which was nice and it made the book more enjoyable.

Once Jennifer accepted that Owen wasn't her destined guy and gave in Nicks advances things got so much better. It was surprising how many faced were familiar with the characters on the island where the show was taking place. I never realized how many resources these people had. I think that the better part of the book overcame the bad and that's why I am giving 4 stars to the book and a recommendation.
