Michael is always there for his friends, which is why he ended up keeping Rachel out of Eric’s and Molly’s way.  Rachel has always taken on the task of trying to keep her sister out of trouble that she has forgotten how to take care of herself. 

The second book in the Games of Love series, The World is a Stage, had me laughing and crying at different parts of the book.  The fact that Rachel has to learn some hard lessons if she is to keep her relationship with her family is so true, even though there were times I wanted to slap her and tell Michael to just walk away. 

The reactions of the various characters to each other and the circumstances were so true and funny at times.  Michael also has to come to terms with a life-changing injury as well, because professional athletes are sometimes the last to give up, to their determent. 

The author did something with Shakespeare that I would never have thought of, so be warned this plays a very interesting role within this story.  There is also a lot of emotional turmoil, as well as wondering how this will all be resolved.  I enjoyed the ending because I thought the author did a great job of getting the conflict resolved, though she kept you wondering right to the last.   

Though you do not have to read this series in order, to get the most enjoyment, I recommend you read the books in order.
