What the Critics Say

"Each narrator in this romantic comedy is perfectly cast, providing just the right voice, accent, and touch to make his or her character interesting, funny, and larger than life. Chas's Southern accent is charming and suave, and Legs's own voice is sultry and hot. The result is a winning combination." (AudioFile magazine)

First Thought when Finished: Game On by Gabra Zackman was fun sexy romp but the story could have been more flushed out.

Overall Thoughts: I really enjoyed Game On (my stepmom enjoyed it even more) but it must be said that at times it relied a little to much on sass instead of strength of story. I wanted a little bit more from the story--more background, character building, and mystery. I liked what was there though: pacing, sass, fun, and excitement. This story was short which means I suffered from what I always do with short stories: the want of more. I will read more if this turns into a series though because I loved the characters. They were quirky, sexy, and at times a bit over a top in a totally fun way (think Stephanie Plum but with real badass skills). If you are looking for something sexy, fun, and exciting I don't think you will be disappointed in Game On!

The narration was out of this park! Seriously it was just downright fun and brought the characters too life. You can tell they had fun with the subject matter because they let the sass fly! Totally recommend this on audio if you pick it up. You will thank me later!

Not Your Mama's Romance Novel!

What did you love best about Game On?

I loved both the story and the performances. Fast-paced and fun, this book was a great mash up between romance and espionage caper. I appreciated the strong, witty women characters who aren't afraid to actively pursue love and sex while kicking butt at their jobs--they were the equals of the men in the book and insisted on being treated as partners, not possessions to be protected. Most romance novels (at least the ones I've listened to) seem to feature women who are insecure, submissive and/or inexperienced--which often reads as code for a "good" woman deserving of love. Legs, Lisa Bee, AJ and the other female characters turned this stereotype on its head. And the performances were amazing, which made the characters really come to life. Having a full cast made this already enjoyable story even better.
