Synopsis from Goodreads:

At the request of the U.S. Government, Caitlyn O’Rourke faked her death years ago, only to be reborn as the Cat—a deadly black-ops agent tasked with working for the shadowy organization Chameleon and doing the jobs that can’t be done in the light of day. Now, on the verge of taking down a notorious drug lord and rescuing a captured Chameleon agent, Cat is targeted for assassination…from within. But who’s making the call, and why? As she attempts to uncover answers and stay alive, Cat finds herself working alongside Cody Kingsley, the mysterious senator who broke her heart and betrayed her long ago. Along with an inner circle of fellow agents, Cat and Cody must untangle the web of lies that surrounds them before it’s too late. From the sultry streets of New Orleans to a secluded plantation in Ecuador to Washington, DC, Cat must elude an agent hell-bent on her destruction while figuring out how high up the ladder the conspiracy reaches. At the same time, she must work through her tumultuous and conflicting emotions where both Cody and fellow agent Galloway—who may or may not have her best interests at heart—are concerned. A thrill ride of emotions, suspense, and action, Fool’s Game intertwines matters of the heart and survival …and the only thing certain is that Cat will never be the same.

My Review:

Intrigue and subterfuge run rampant in this very heated novel. Huffman takes you on a wild ride with twists and turns galore. Everything melds so seamlessly together that you can’t help but get drawn along with the fast paced action of this well written tale. This story definitely made me laugh and gasp in turn. Not only is this story action packed, it’s also very emotionally charged. Huffman adds a bit of everything to this story so that there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Huffman doesn’t simply tell a story with this novel, but rather paints and interactive picture for her audience to walk through. She gives you all the details that are pertinent while still leaving her readers enough leeway for their imaginations to run away with them.

The characters in this novel are quite well developed. They were also enjoyable individuals who remain ‘normal’ in the face of rather atypical professions and circumstances. This cast of characters definitely sets the tone and pace of the novel quite uniquely and makes it very easy to immerse yourself in.

As a whole, this was a great, fast paced read with a little bit of everything. I’d definitely recommend it.
