Rules of the Game by Sandy James

Review of Rules of The Game by Sandy James

Published: April 2, 2012

5 out of 5 smirks

Synopsis: "Kathryn West has it all-she's a confident, bestselling author living it up in New York City. Too bad she doesn't actually exist, and is only timid Maddie Sawyer's pseudonym. Determined to attend her high school reunion with a man right out of one of her racy romance novels, she plots to find a sexy bad boy who's up to Kathryn's standards.

She finds Mr. Perfect shooting pool in a biker bar. He's a blue-collar hunk who just happens to look great in leather. But the mysterious Scott Brady has some rules of his own: he won't agree to her deal unless she poses as his girlfriend in front of his family and friends first.

As the reunion nears, Maddie tries to maintain her carefree fa├žade, knowing she'll soon face some old ghosts. She's torn between her growing attraction to Scott and the nagging feeling that he's hiding something important. Will she still want him when she finds out his secret? What about when he discovers hers?"

Rules of The Game by Sandy James is a story about how when it rain it pours.  I really enjoyed the air of not everyone is perfect this story seemed to give off in vibes. I loved how in this story readers can find that love can be perfect if you find the person who is perfect for you.  Maddie is a refreshing character who seems to not have control over what she thinks to what she says.  It's Maddie's personality that will have readers glued to this book, not being able to put it down.  I also found Scott to be the perfect embodiment of how a partner is suppose to be in a relationship, someone solid and constant.  Together these two characters hash out, work out, and all around complement each other until the very end.  What made this story so intriguing was the skeletons not in Scott's closet, but in Maddie's.  I don't want to give anything away because this book is truly one of a kind.  Rules of The Game by Sandy James, 5 smirks, must read, own, recommend.
