About the Author

Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched). Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up. And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

More About the Author

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

I finished reading Game of Hearts and I loved it.

What I love about KA is that she brings in so many characters in her boooks that you really get emotionally invested in the stories and you fall in love with them every single time. And because of the length of her books you get a chance to live with those characters and they feel like family and it gives you that warm happy feeling ...every single time.

I was not a fan of Mike Haines before - as he was trying to get between Vi and Joe and I wanted him gone. But OMG I am a huge fan of his now. I love these alpha males and when you find one like Mike - who I was not expecting to be so great - it is like decadent icing on a triple layer chocolate cake.

Just a few things I really enjoyed about the book are
* Dusty fell in love with Mike as a teenager and never fell out of love with him. I really loved that they had this relationship before and were able to build on it and take it to another level.

* I loved the fact that it was the man jumping to conclusions all of the time and not the woman. I also loved how he apologised for his jumping to conclusions. :) But these false conclusions were cleared up quickly and did not linger throughout the book.

* I liked that this time the sister was the evil one and not the ex-wife a nice twist. Although for a moment it looked like we would have 2 evil ones but the ex-wife redeemed herself in the end.

* An added bonus was the relationship between Fin and Reesee - alpha male at such a young age - yummy.

* Those moments that were totally Alpha such as Mike taking a call from Beau when he and Dusty were doing the deed and setting him straight.

* But most of all I liked that Dusty was a strong woman.

Let me just state first up that I love Kristen I think that her work is amazing and the fact that she writes so quickly,and comes up with these rich stories filled with complex and loveable characters makes her some kind if genius. I love her use of language and her ability to create a world from thin air and juggle all the pieces with out letting any of them drop is truly wondrous. In Games of the heart she has given us a fantastic story with a truly kick ass leading lady ( Dusty) and a true alpha male ( Mike)loves his job and his kids and manages both so well. The story is fabulous and the side story of Fin and Clarisse is just icing on the cake.

However I have one major problem with this story and that is the conversations and exchanges that the characters have. Every single one them is so bloody heart felt! It seems they can't even have a discussion about cake with it turning into some sort of love in.The overuse of deep and meaningfuls in this book actually make the true exchanges of love commitment seem slightly trivial. it bothered me so much that I was actually skipping chunks of dialogue to get to the next point. I'm not sure why Kristen seems to have gone overboard in this book with these exchanges, maybe she saw that readers responded well to these in her other books ( and let me tell you when she uses theses correctly her words can pack a literary punch the likes of which you rarely get to read let alone see in every single item of an authors body of work) so she decided that if a little was good then a lot would be great? I spent alot of the book thinking to myself No one talks like this!

I swear Mike Haines has got some deep down and dirty secret on Kristen Ashley's editor and he threatened her with exposure if she took her red pen to him because, boy, can that man talk. I'd get up in the morning, he'd be talking. I'd go make coffee, he'd still be talking. I'd go to work for 10 hours and get home and he'd still be going on. OK - so most of what he said was lovely and gave me the warm and fuzzies but I was desperate for him to talk in speeches of 2 pages or less instead of the long, blusterous soliloquies he gave us.

I had a bit of a problem with him at the beginning of the book. Judgemental, much? Twice he jumped to wrong conclusions about Dusty and the third time, after he found out about a traumatic incident in her past, he decided she just wasn't worth it and dumped her. If it hadn't been for the fact that the book was on my Precious (my Kindle), it would have been hurled across the room. Never have we met a KA Alpha who slithered quite so low to the ground.

He did, of course, redeem himself and then some and I grew to love him but I was shocked at how quickly Dusty forgave him because Dusty must be one of KA's best ever heroines. She's honest, open, engaging, totally without deceit and a strong, feisty woman and I totally, totally loved her. She was prepared to move heaven and earth for those she loved. For a long time, I felt she deserved much better than Mike but I came around, eventually.

There's a beautiful secondary romance here between the teenagers Fin and Reesee and I did feel this totally eclipsed Dusty and Mike as their romance was a done deal before even a third of the book was completed. Fin is a boy/man very much in the Ashley Alpha Mould and I can see why he brings out the latent cougar in so many reviewers here at Goodreads.
