I had so much fun reading this book. It really was one of those books that made me smile a lot. This book has everything I like in a romance book, attraction, lust, likable characters, a story, no cheating, characters that actually grow to love each other rather than thinking lust is love, and of course a happy ever after. The storyline of marriage for the media has been done before, and honestly there is probably not a lot in this book that is different than others out there, but this one was good. I liked the instant lust between Jared and Sheridan. I felt it. I liked how neither denied it, but when it came to the marriage Sheridan was smart enough to try and protect herself from it. I liked how Jared initially pushed for Sheridan but then let Sheridan ignore the lust whilst marriage. But what made this book great was when they both stopped denying it. Then there was heat. A lot. If you have read Tempting the Player (The Gamble Brothers) by J. Lynn and liked it, you will like this.

Karen Erickson is bringing her brand of sexy back! Jane's Gift, her first book with Entangled Publishing was sweet and sensual but good gosh almighty! Game for Marriage had my palms sweating, giggling hysterically, sighing and ugly crying at *the moment*. I can't wait for more smexiness from Karen.

***Step aside Tom and Katie! The Mighty Jared Quinn, hottie quarterback and girl who needs money Sheridan Harper will give you a run for your title of Mr. and Mrs. We're Totally Not Together But Have A Contract That Says So!***

Dearest Gossip Readers,

A little birdie told me that San Jose Hawks Jared Quinn, yes, the Mighty Jared Quinn, is in a marriage of convenience to try to clean up his bad boy image. Squeaky clean Sheridan Harper is just the girl for the job.

Jared was last seen hosting the former Mrs. Craig Wallace on his lap at a club and a few days later, he's officially a homewrecker. Of course he's in denial but with his womanizing reputation, who would believe his denial? Not this girl! At least when the scandal broke out.

Enter struggling artist Sheridan Harper to the rescue. She looks like a total Suzie Homemaker and well, her grandmother's studio is in financial decline. How much money would you sell yourself for to keep a legacy running? A large enough sum will for a marriage of convenience, that's how much. And seriously, who would say no to spending a year with Jared Quinn? If you say not you, you're in some major denial. I know you spend your days Googling him. *evil laughter*

I've been told that PR shark Harvey Price negotiated this deal along with entertainment lawyer Walter Cavanaugh. One year, no sex-clause.

I absolutely loved this book and want more of it... the characters are real and the love scenes Whew!!! Fan me! Even though this book was a rather short read it was spectacular. The characters didn't instantly fall in love and the sex was amazing(did I already mention that??!!) If you like a sexy QB and a independent and equally sexy heroine then this is the story for you.Add in the whole marriage of convenience twist and viola a masterpiece! I enjoy sports related RN so this was so up my alley. I have found a new favorite author... you go Karen E.!!!

I enjoyed reading this book from author karen Erickson. It contained enough steamy scenes to satisfy my desire for sex, but wasn't overdone to be nothing but sex. The plot was strong and carried the story all the way though. For a first book of this author, I am looking forward to reading more of her work.

3 stars = it's okay.
That's how I felt about this story
Sheridan is a struggling artist that meets gorgeous hunky QB, Jared.
Jared and Sheridan immediately have strong chemistry between them.
Jared has experienced some bad publicity due to a football player's wife sitting on his lap.
The owner is threatening to trade Jared, so the plot is about creating a fake marriage b/w the perfectly adorable Sheridan and Jared.
Sheridan and Jared fall in love, they have great sex, marriage is real, HEA, no cliffhanger. The End.

It's a premise that has been done before - so the author needed to create great characters and give depth to the storyline. Neither was accomplish. The story was tepid, the relationship romance factor was okay, and the ending was contrived and campy. I didn't give it 2 stars because it is defined as 'I didn't like it'. This book was just ok.

Storyline: Jared needs a fake marriage? Even if he HAD slept with another player's wife. Who cares? Football is a very forgiving sport. Sports fans have a 10 minute memory. As long as the player is kicking butt on the field - who cares. Anymore remember Ray Lewis??? How did he end up being the darling of the Ravens after the murder trial? The list is 10 miles long of players like that. I think the more of a tool the players are, the more football fans like them.

Okay - so storyline aside.
Jared and Sheridan seem like nice people - but cannot communicate a darn.
They spend a lot of time avoiding each other.
Then Sheridan has to throw herself at Jared.
Where is the dialogue. The author talks about HOW they like each other, but doesn't SHOW us. I like books where we experience the growth of friendship and love WITH the characters - not hear about afterwards.
