About the Book


Politics is no game when a stalker nears and there’s nowhere to hide.

 A run for the senate is just a step on the road to the White House for Congressman Lucas McMann. But his public profile has put him in the middle of a crazed gunman’s twisted game of stalking. If he wants to win the election and reclaim his life, he’ll need the help of the one person who’d rather leave their past behind them.

 Private Investigator Nikki Kent knows how to dig up secrets and discover those who exist in the shadows. She should. She’s good at hiding secrets of her own. Can she risk her own discovery for someone so desperate for her help? For the first man who broke her heart? With new-found faith, she’ll help Lucas search for the answers. But with the truth comes a danger they must face together.


My Review

When I heard this was a political thriller, I was immediately intrigued- I had never really heard of such a genre. I was delighted by the surprise I got in Game On. From page 1, the action starts for career politician Lucas and private investigator Nikki. We are thrust into the spotlight with Lucas as he becomes suspicious of a stalker instead of a pesky media constantly following his every move. We are also thrust into Nikki's world which as a private investigator is stressful enough, but takes a heart wrenching turn when she is confronted with Lucas again. As a new found Christian, Nikki knows forgiveness is what the Lord would want her to do, but the pain of her past with Lucas makes her want to turn tail and run from having any relationship with him again. Soon enough, we find out that Nikki is just as involved in the stalker's plan as Lucas the politician is, and their relationship begins to rekindle. The action in this book is heart pounding, and I felt like I was looking over my shoulder with the characters, and sneaking around trying to be quiet to hide from my pursuers. The complexity of the plot and characters was thrilling and made it to where I didn't want to put the book down until I finished it! The plot kept you guessing hoping that you had finally figured out who the stalker was, but you keep coming face to face with twists and turns instead. I personally enjoy shows like Criminal Minds, and this book fed my inner detective just as much as watching a suspenseful show would do. It was even better because I was able to act out the plot and interact with the characters in my mind. This book will keep you moving emotionally and mentally, and doesn't stop for one second. The best part of the book was how the Lord was so evident in Lucas and Nikki's lives and how that was the guiding force and source of peace for them through so many challenges. Thanks to Game On, I have a new top Christian genre that I love! Thanks for the great read Ms. Duncan!

I received this book for free in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.

Guest Post from Lillian Duncan

Everyone’s heard the saying: just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean someone isn’t out to get you! That’s the premise of my new political thriller, GAME ON.

Congressman, Lucas McMann wants to throw his hat into the political arena once again, this time for the U.S. Senate. It’s the next step on his journey to the White House, but he believes he’s the victim of an elaborate stalking game.

The problem is no one else believes him.

He can’t move forward until he stops the game. He can’t stop the game until he discovers who’s behind it. To do that he needs someone who will believe in him enough to help him get the proof he so desperately wants.

And he knows just the person.

If only she’s put their past behind her.

 Private Investigator, Nikki Kent makes a living finding out other people’s secrets, but she has one of her own. When Lucas shows up asking for her help, she refuses. She can’t take the chance of her secret coming to light. But her new-found faith won’t let her turn her back on someone who is desperate for her help—even if he was the first man to break her heart Game On is filled with enough twists and turns that will keep you turning those pages late into the night. I really had fun writing it and hope readers will have fun reading it. My publisher outdid herself with the book trailer for GAME ON so I hope you’ll check it out at: https://youtu.be/t6MK2UGB1P0.
