The game of reality TV hasn’t been an easy road for former Hollywood A-Lister, Deacon Brady, but he’s playing to win.
This time in Salzburg, Austria ...
When a global pandemic forces the entire cast and crew into lockdown, things get complicated. For the first time in television history, Tainted Love goes live online, making the game interactive and oh so interesting.
Former Navel Officer, Fynn, is the next bachelor in a long line trying to capture Deacon’s heart. The catch— he’s never even heard of Deacon Brady, so Fynn doesn’t give a damn about the competition.
But what is Fynn really hiding?
Just when Deacon thought he’d seen and heard it all, the show’s producer, Dante, does what he does best, and drops yet another plot twist. It wouldn’t be good reality TV without a little drama ... or a lot!
Has Deacon Brady finally met his match?
The hills are alive - Salzburg, Austria.
Going in, I knew this was part of a series but didn't realize it's a series based on one main character and it's a continuation type of story, so I was a bit lost about some of the events that were mentioned, but that still didn't take away from my overall enjoyment of this book. I liked that this fictional story sort of imitated real life with Deacon, Dante and Fynn on lockdown due to a pandemic and trying to figure out how Deacon and Fynn would get to know each other more when they can't be in close proximity to each other.
One thing that really stands out is that there's tension between Deacon and Fynn, and it ain't necessarily the good kind at times. Even after they're finally able to meet in person, there's still some tension between them, although it does improve, but it doesn't touch the tension between Deacon and Dante. I'm planning on going back to read the previous books, because based on what I read in this one regarding D&D, I'm interested in finding out how this all came together and see the evolution of their interactions, and I'm really curious about how the rest of the series will play out and what's going to happen with D&D.
