Publisher's Summary

He'll play dirty to get what he wants....
Willow Cavanaugh would be happy if she never saw cocky football star Nick Hamilton again. Sure, their fling was the hottest she'd had, but he's way too much of a playboy to settle down with one woman. Plus, she's got her heart set on a piece of real estate for her catering business - and Nick owns that property. Nick may be at the top of his game, but all he wants is a second chance with Willow. When he offers to sell her his commercial space if she agrees to a series of dates with him, their chemistry is so scintillating that jumping back into bed seems like an inevitability. But Willow's decided all's fair in sex and blackmail. Little does she know, Nick's playing to win - and she's the prize.

A Little Blackmail Never Hurt Anyone

Game for Trouble is the perfect title for Willow and Nick’s book because when they reconnect after Nick left her when they were younger, he causes nothing but distress for her by blackmailing himself back into her life and forcing her to go on 8 dates with him in order to get the building that she needs for her burgeoning business. But the true concern in their relationship is that both Willow and Nick feel too much for each other and the reasons why Nick left all those years ago is something that might destroy any progress he makes with her, if she ever does truly allow him back into her life and her bed.

I can’t blame Willow for her fears and frustrations at the game she thinks Nick’s playing with her. Her feelings for him are intense and the hurt she felt after he broke her heart is not something she can easily get past. She agrees to Nick’s proposition because she’s desperate for the space for her catering company, but she refuses to allow him back into her heart…but he definitely knows how to wear Willow down.

Nick may be a superstar football player, but he’s over the kind of lifestyle that comes with it; he wants Willow back and regrets how things played out with her but he also knew he never had a chance to make it work back then but he sure as hell plans to take what he wants now, even if it means playing dirty and forcing himself on the stubborn woman he wants.

The banter between Willow and Nick throughout the text illustrates how much they’re into each other as well as how easily they get on each other’s nerves. They both seem to overanalyze everything, especially Willow, but it’s hard to let go of the hurt from their past relationship. Getting both of their POVs allows readers to truly understand what’s going through their heads as they try to cautiously move forward and get what they want. The issues between them are never truly discussed until close to the end of the story, which creates quite a bit of angst throughout the text and has both Willow and Nick questioning everything about their relationship.

Game For Trouble is a sexy, quick second chance love story that is definitely worth the read.

Audio Insight

I love listening to books that use both the male/female perspective. It adds to the depth of understanding for me as the listener because it allows both characters to be represented and clearly characterized throughout the reading. Both narrators in Game For Trouble embody their characters’ emotions and jumbled up brains extremely well, which makes the text an enjoyable audio experience.
