Book Description

                                        #1 Kindle Romance Bestseller!

                            She's HOT! He's BOTHERED! Together they Sizzle!

"You need an attitude adjustment!" Samantha Logan told Adam Rourke.

She didn't care that he was rich, she didn't care that he was handsome, and she didn't care that her boss was his surrogate father.

She tried to ignore the fact that his deep voice hit her behind the knees and made her feel oddly off balance. And she was sure those heart palpitations were the result of drinking two five-hour energy drinks in less than thirty minutes and definitely not from a pair of broad shoulders, green eyes and a sexy stubble.

He was way too cynical, thought he knew it all, and had her reaching for three Excedrin™ and a couple of Tums™ in less than five minutes!

Samantha Logan, he decided, was the proverbial sexy librarian fantasy - with dancer's legs and a curvy ass. Her blonde hair was piled precariously on top of her head, held in place by a bright yellow pencil. A few flaxen wisps had escaped, teasing against a softly rounded face. Square blue-tinted eyeglasses highlighted even bluer eyes. She was smart, sassy, way too funny - and she had no idea she was all that.

When she pulled the pencil from her topknot, he watched her hair untangle and drift down to her shoulders, in a sexy-just-out-of-bed, mess-me-up-more tumble. Adam hadn't realized he was even holding his breath, until he coughed in relief.

Right now, she was mad! Her barefoot angrily tapping against the carpet. And way too sexy, he tried to blink that observation away. There was nothing left to do but apologize. But she had looked him straight in the eye and insulted him!

Even after two tours of duty in Fallujah, Adam wasn't sure he could handle a woman who: wrangled a team of SEALS for the Wounded Warrior Project, was banned from singing, humming or playing golf, had an oven timer that played Beethoven's Fifth, loved all things chocolate way too much, preferred puppy kisses over his, and owned a moose named Morti.

There was only one thing for this Marine to do - man up, take her down and demand a zerbert - whatever the hell that was!

Voted by Turning Pages - winner erotic romance category for 2012!

Highlights the Wounded Warrior Project!

5.0 out of 5 stars Moose! October 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! Just absolutely Wow! I read this book in one night, I was so taken by the characters. Towards the middle of the book, the main character started to make me mad, but knowing more about her now I'm not so sure of my feelings that made me mad. This book was beautifully written, and the characters are so easy to fall in love with. My heart melted in an instant and I giggled so much through this book. Amazing read!

4.0 out of 5 stars A sweet and steamy love story July 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed Rules of the Game very much. It was my first taste of Ms Elaine Raco Chase's writing and I was pleasantly surprised. She painted vivid and very likeable characters with strong and believable personalities. Even the lesser characters were sufficiently developed and fun to read about. This book was romantic as well as steamy. Oh, and let's not forget the humour. I enjoyed a few good chuckles thanks to the witty banter.

I'm pleased to also say that I came across very few errors and the writing had a nice flow to it. At times I felt there was perhaps a little too much attention placed on setting and describing the scenes and incidental things that had little bearing on the story, but that's just me. I can't really call this a flaw in the writing so much as a difference in reading tastes. Besides, despite this the book did not drag. All in all this is a lovely feel-good book that is perfect for the romance lover. Far, far better than many e-books I've read. Trust me; I've done the legwork.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoy every moment of the journey getting to the end August 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I have had the privilege of reading / listening to the audiobook versions of several titles by Elaine Raco Chase. Her romances are spicy, with banter and dialogue that is realistic, female protagonists that are strong and often confident without being brash or showboating. This title is no different: in Rules of the Game we meet Samantha, an independent attorney with a penchant for chocolate and a no-nonsense ability to bully, cajole and sweet talk those in the Wounded Warrior project to do her bidding.

When she meets Adam, a friend of her boss, the rich, urbane and often abrupt ex-marine instantly sparks her interest, even as she is pulling away. Utterly enchanted and wanting to react with his go-to alpha tendencies, Adam is both confused and confounded when she doesn't react as he expects.

Elaine Raco Chase then sets the story for multiple encounters and conversations, with sexual tension being predominant, when you aren't chuckling over the banter between the two. Or melting when she scenes snowball to ramp up the steam quotient, for there is steam heat here in these pages.

These are light, fun romances: you know what you will get with one of Elaine's books, and you will enjoy every moment of the journey getting to the end. And you will revel in the dialogue, so real that you could overhear it from your seat in the restaurant, and lean just a tiny bit closer to not miss a word. Enjoy this book; it will entertain you on an otherwise quiet afternoon.

I purchased a copy of this title for my own library. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attitude adjustment ! August 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Samantha and Adam meet... humor follows with witty dialogue and a growing attraction ensues, Sam a paralegal and Adam a former Marine and now businessman. The attraction was instant, it was great to watch their love develop. It was nice how Miss Chase included the Wounded Warrior Project into the story.

once you identify who is who, the rest is all fun (with a happy ending of course). Once again we are reminded strong women like strong men or is it strong men like strong women? Either way, it's the best way to build tension in a story, and "Rules" doesn't disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Read! July 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I won this book in a giveaway and I am so glad I did. I laughed, got mad, cheered and got a bit, um, hot so I know this was a great read for me. Lovely characters, even the mean witchy one, which kept me reading from start to finish without stopping. A very well written, sexy and funny book that I hope others will read too. I am now a fan for life!

Reviewers have called them: "cat & mouse" - "slow burn" - "hot and steamy" - "highly addicting" - "solid characters & lots of humor" - "amazing reads!"

I call them fun! My heroines are NOT: thin, petite, clueless or submissive. They are strong women who aren't looking for a man - until the right one comes along!

And those men! Tough-guy, alpha males who don't know what hit them! But do know they want MORE!

Whether you read my erotic romantic comedies (updated eBooks), my updated 'steamy' romantic eBooks, or my classic eBooks - remember there's never an expiration date on Romance!

I'm excited to announce: Double Occupancy has been on Facebook's "What to read after 50 Shades of Grey Top 50 book list" for over 2 years! While it's on FB's hottest list...there is no BDSM - no college 'twinkies' - just a fabulous explicit love story that readers say "wow, this is so real, I feel it can happen."
