I have not read the first book of this series which is about a different couple. I didn’t really have a hard time keeping up with the storyline or characters, but I will be reading the first book because I see that the stories flow together.
Melanie and Jake live in the same town. Jake’s life is in their small village, but Melanie is waiting to flee it. She is looked down upon because of her past mistakes and feels like she can’t breathe there. Jake and Melanie shared a short period in the past, and both thought they could move on. When Jake returns home, all bets are off. Can they make this fling a relationship? Will she ever be able to trust anyone again, especially someone who has the power to completely crush her?
Melanie was an intriguing character..she definitely isn’t perfect, and people in the book seem to make some unfair judgments about her. Yes, she made some bad choices, but no one ever asked why she did. They assumed, never asking themselves why she became the person they thought she was. She is the first to admit her flaws, but life dealt her a crap hand, and she dealt with it the only way she knew how. She lost two of the most important people in her life, and she began thinking no one ever stays, so why should she allow her heart to be broken again. She thought she had protected her heart, but she found out she hadn’t when Jake came back into her life.
Jake, himself, is also an intriguing character. He is flawed as well, but aren’t we all? Life dealt him a blow as well, professionally and more importantly, personally. Things he grew up thinking were true were lies. He is having a hard time dealing with it, especially when it impacts his relationship and who he thought his cousin, Taylor, was. His heart has always belonged to Melanie, even if he doesn’t realize it yet. He can’t get her out of his head, and he’ll take her anyway he can get her.
“She was intriguing—a closed book I wanted to tear open and devour every last word of.”
I just love when two people who have been hurt and in pain find one another and begin the healing process. These two were destined to be together. Not only do they find love, but they also discovered who they were as individuals. Life will definitely take them places they only dreamed of.

By Charlie M. Matthews
“So, what do you do when your world is ripped out from under your very feet? What do you do when all you've ever known is lost? Do you fight? Or do you just sit back and watch everything fade away?”
Everyone has a story. Everyone has a past. And sometimes those stories and pasts define who we are. Melanie has a past. A past filled with happy memories and love, until one day those memories and love are ripped away. When tragedy strikes her family, Melanie is shoved aside and she constructs a wall to protect herself from getting hurt again. Jake has had it all. Money, fame, and a loving family. One secret rips his whole world in pieces, and Jake is faced with reality. He needs to find who he is and what he wants, but at what cost?
“Faced with the realisation that no one could be trusted, I learned quickly that I didn’t need anyone in my life and I would treat others how they treated me. I wouldn’t love again.”
This book...I loved it! I love the characters, yes, even Melanie. And I love how Charlie was able to keep the story flowing with The Wrong Game. The intensity of the characters attraction has you wanting more, while the heartache breaks you down. A Different Game is just that, it’s different. Raw, honest and real. (There is a surprise character in this story as well!!!)
“Now, with her fingers in my hair and her contented breaths dancing across my chest, I knew that whatever storm awaited us, we would ride it out together. Because as long as we had each other, nothing and no one could tear us apart.”
