Fare Game by Cade Haddock Strong

⭐⭐⭐☆

This one has a thoroughly intriguing storyline with a major financial crime at its centre, very likeable MCs and great chemistry.

Kay Corbett is a long-time employee at Logan airline and has recently been moved into the upper echelons of the company. Kay’s father had also worked in Logan for decades so fondness for and loyalty to the company is ingrained within Kay. Soon after joining the rarefied senior management, Kay is dismayed to discover that there is a huge cross-airline consortium working together and cheating customers. Willy-nilly Kay is dragged into the whole nefarious scheme. She starts gathering evidence against the consortium hoping to expose them. Hardworking and brilliant Riley Bauer, a new member of the Finance team of Logan, has a huge crush on Kay. On an overseas trip to Tokyo, Riley and Kay realise that their attraction is mutual. Back home things are fraught because of Kay’s secret mission. Taking a leap of faith, Kay shares information with Riley and finds her new girlfriend rock-solid in her affection and integrity.

The high-stakes white-collared crime makes an interesting premise. However, the writing is uneven in the sense that a lot of times it feels like dispassionate narration and at other times there is this fantastic chemistry between Riley and Kay. We loved Riley – she is sexy, risk-taking emotionally, open, loyal, has high levels of integrity, honest and practical. Kay is also a strong and solid protagonist. The whole whistle-blower rules, rights and process is very interesting.

This is an engaging and interesting read.
