⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Crassy, sassy, and brassy, that’s Benni. She’s loyal to a fault and has a heart of gold, but she doesn’t show it often. She loves her family and wants to provide for them, but the only way she is able to, will lead her to trouble and danger. It can also lead her to a man who will love her and respect her as well as help her find her right path in life. Unfortunately, they have some obstacles to overcome first. She did the crime and the time, now I only hope that she can follow the right path and stay on it. Time will tell. Benni’s almost-ex is an obstacle that she will have to fight to overcome. He still has a hold on her heart, much to her dismay.
I really enjoyed this book. Benni’s toughness and her loyalty to those that are in her inner circle shows that she is a good person, the only problem is that she chose the wrong path to help her family and realizes almost too late that she did it for selfish reasons. The struggles that she goes through in her life shows her true character. I look forward to seeing if her path leading forward will continue in the right direction. I love the characters and the story, and I look forward to the next book.
I give this book a 5-star review. I love Ms. Garcia’s books and she has not disappointed on this book. Her ability to write characters that are like old friends of mine, is what always pulls me into her books. I can see Benni as a classmate of mine and it’s like reading about an old friend. I love the turmoil, danger, and choices that the characters go through. If you like stories of strong women, cartels, or romantic situations with characters that shouldn’t be together, you will enjoy The Games That Break Us. Benni is a great character and the men around her only enhance her personality.
