Publisher's Summary

The Remingtons are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.
Ellie Parker is a master at building walls around her heart. In the 25 years she's been alive, Dex Remington has been the only person who has always believed in her and been there for her. But four years earlier, she came to Dex seeking comfort and then disappeared like a thief in the night, leaving him a broken man.
Dex Remington is one of the top PC game developers in the United States. He's handsome, smart, and numb. So damn numb that he's not sure he'll ever find a reason to feel again.
A chance encounter sparks intense desires in Ellie and Dex. Desires that make her want to run - and make him want to feel. A combination of lust and fear leads these young lovers down a dangerous path. Is it possible to cross a burned bridge, or are they destined to be apart forever?

Love Dex and Ellie

This is my very first Melissa Foster book so I have not read any others in main series, but now I really want to! I really liked this story, the struggle Dex and Ellie went through, being together, apart, together, and how it showed the work they needed in order to be together! I liked how human they really seemed and relatable in their struggles. I love Mitch and Regina and how they also helped to bring more of the fun banter into the story, I'm hoping for an HEA for them too! I'm looking forward to reading/hearing more from Melissa Foster, I would love to find out more from other characters in the series!

This is my first BJ Harrison audiobook. He has a pleasant voice and I would listen to others from him again. However, I did feel like the voice I pictured for Dex was a little different than the one he used. Though, it did not detract from the story at all!

This was my first Melissa Foster book and it won't be my last. I enjoyed the overall story, I did feel that some things were rather repetitive and a few lines in the story made me sit up and think 'say what?' But, I'm sure that's personal taste, others may actually like it. It wasn't enough to make me stop listening, or prevent me from listening to more. I liked Melissa's writing style, it was quick and easy to follow.

Dex and Ellie are a cute couple, I really liked them, they've been friends for a long time, Dex has always wanted more but whenever he gets close Ellie is either taken or runs away from him. Meeting again as adults he's concerned about protecting his heart, which is understandable. Ellie had a tough childhood, moving from foster placement to foster placement, she only ever felt safe with Dex, she's accustomed to running but seeing the effect that has on Dex really makes her start to sit up and take notice. They've loved each other for a long time and waste no time sinking into a relationship. It was sweet to watch unfold and I dare you not to empathise with Ellie. There is a little drama but, to be honest, it's pretty much over by the time it starts. The sexy times are written well and make sense to the story and progress it along nicely.

B.J. Harrison was new to me and I don't know if it's because he was new or I just didn't connect with his performance, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I've enjoyed books in the past. At first, he sounded almost British, which threw me off, I couldn't understand why. As the book progressed and I got used to his style of narration, I did enjoy it more, but it still wasn't a performance that jumped out at me. I felt the way Regina was performed was entirely too whiny and almost, insulting, which did not fit the character at all. I did enjoy the emotion that came across from Dex, that was done well.

A sweet story to brighten your day :)

What did you like most about Game of Love?

Dax and Ellie story is one that starts as teenage love and develops over time. These are my favourite stories.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Dex seeing Ellie for the first time after 4 years. He struggled to hear the conversation around him as the memories come back.

Any additional comments?

I loved this story.
Dex and Ellie have a sweet story that starts in childhood and despite a separation, Dex has not forgotten her or removed her from his heart. Ellie has had to build some rather solid walls around her heart and after a night of disaster, finds herself at Dex's door looking for help. A visit to her past enables Ellie to embrace the past and the walls start to crumble allowing her to see that Dex is the man for her.

When you're not looking for love

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Its quite an emotional journey for both the main characters and you get that with the narration.

What other book might you compare Game of Love to, and why?

I think all Melissa's books have a different take on love story, but if I had to pick one book it would be Amy and Tony from the Seaside stories.

What does B.J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

When you listen to an audio book there is at lot more emotion in the story. You get drawn into it and that is down to having a good narrator.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

When you're childhood crush is your long lost love.
