When the stakes are this high, it’s game on. . . .
“Kelly Jamieson is an auto-buy for me.”—New York Times bestselling author Carly Phillips
Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season, because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle.
Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections. When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people.
Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
Game On starts out with a hysterical comedy of errors between Cam and Olivia as they go on their first few dates, and evolves into a sweet love story. But Cam only asked her out on a bet, and Olivia only agreed to go out with him because of what his celebrity could do for her non-profit.
There is a great connection between the characters, and I was glad that commitaphobe Cam fessed up about the bet he made with his teammates early on. Olivia agrees to help him win, but as usually happens, she falls in love with Cam by the time their two months is up. But when she opens up and tells Cam how she feels for him, will he blow her off or tell her that he’s fallen for her as well?
I had not read any of the other books in this series, but didn’t feel like I was missing plot points. It is a true standalone. The epilogue gave a cute update on all the other couples in this series, which I’m sure is great for fans of this series.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
