5 out of 5 smirks
Synopsis: “Chris St. James is ready for normal. After walking away from her pro tennis career and a toxic relationship with a star hockey player, she's starting a new life as a teacher and tennis coach in a small town. Now all she needs is an average guy to share it with.
Brett Wallace is no average guy. Forced to retire from the NFL after an injury-and suddenly single after being dumped by his status-conscious wife-he's returned to his hometown to coach the varsity football team. Wary of women interested only in his celebrity, Brett finds Chris's indifference to his former career refreshing.
The last thing Chris needs is to get involved with another pro athlete, but she can't deny the sparks that fly between them. So she agrees to a purely physical, no-strings-attached affair. But the rules of the game change when she falls for him...”
The Game of Love by Jeanette Murray is one of the most original romance stories I have read this summer. It was unique and captivating in the story itself and the characters. I instantly fell in love with Brett and Chris as a couple because they are so much alike and yet so different. I loved how they danced around each other for the longest time and found ways without even realizing it to become a part of each other’s everyday lives. I also loved the fact that we as readers got to see three points of view in this story and that Chris remained as much as a mystery to readers as she did to Brett. I give The Game of Love by Jeanette Murray 5 smirks because the characters were not only relatable, but loveable and I couldn’t stop reading it. I also loved the fact that this story made me laugh which is something I value when reading a book.
