The Negotiator (Games People Play 2.5) Read Online Free - Lauren Gallagher’s life changed almost three years ago. After her husband disappeared at sea, she was left with a failing pleasure boat company and more than a few secrets. Now, after years spent rebuilding the business and paying off the pile of debts, she finally feels in control. But when she finds her husband, actually dead, on the floor, she becomes the leading suspect in his murder investigation.
Garrett McGrath wants Lauren in his bed, not his heart. He doesn’t do emotions, but every time he sees her, holding himself back gets harder and harder. When Lauren comes under suspicion for killing her previously presumed-dead husband, he knows he has to help her, any way he can.
But as the danger becomes more intense and Garret and Lauren grow closer than either planned, they’re in danger of losing everything…including their hearts.

I've given this a C+ at AAR, sot that's 3.5 stars
In HelenKay Dimon’s Games People Play series, the heroes are all men who bonded in their youth when they were taken under the wing of someone named Quint, who saved them from the downward spirals they were in, helped all of them learn to utilise...

HelenKay Dimon’s ‘Games People Play’ series is an odd one. Mostly about men who’d grown up disenfranchised, emotionally stunted but wealthy, their HEAs come in such unexpected ways that I don’t really know what to expect in each book. And that arguably, can either be the series’ selling point or...

The Negotiator is the first book I read from HelenKay Dimon and I don't think it will be the last. The author mixed together some elements of romance and others of suspence and while I wasn't blown away by the story, I found it good. We are talking about a novella so there is not much ro...

This was my first story by HelenKay Dimon and I wasn't sure what to expect. I'm happy to say that I enjoyed it and I have the next book in the series, The Pretender, sitting on my Kindle. I also want to see if my library has the first two books in the series so I can play catch up.

The book starts with our heroine, Lauren, opening the door to find her presumed dead husband at the door. There's basically...

The Negotiator is billed as a Christmas novella, and though it takes place in December and decorating for the holiday becomes a topic late in the story, it isn't terribly Christmas-sy, so be warned. Instead, it's the consummation of a romance that's been building up for months (it apparently bega...

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~
3.5*s were negotiated!
This is part of a series, and I wonder if I understood less of the undercurrents because I haven't read the earlier stories.
I enjoy Ms Dimon's books, as they often have a clever twist, which fits w...

The Negotiator was a quick and fun story about Garrett McGrath from HelenKay Dimon's Games People Play series. It was sexy and full of banter. I loved Garrett and Lauren and the way he was so protective of her. I really could not get enough!
When Lauren Gallagher's long lost husband comes from the...
