Synopsis: "Kathryn West has it all-she's a
confident, bestselling author living it up in New York City. Too bad she

romance novels, she plots to find a sexy bad boy who's up to Kathryn's
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
As the reunion nears, Maddie tries to maintain her
carefree façade, 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.
