This is a well written novel with strong characters, a good helping of humor and a lot of steamy scenes to keep you reading for a while!
4 Stars for Play A Game with Me by Cadence Vonn
ARC received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review … opinions expressed are my own & have not been influenced in any way …
Absolutely loved this book !!! This author has now been added to my TBR author list & I am hoping for a book 2 !! Max & Tess need to have their love story continue …
This book has it all :
Great plot with a few unexpected twists
I really ❤️ when a heroine plays a bit hard to get ❤️❤️
Great chemistry 🔥🔥
This is a great romance with a HEA that made me 😊❤️
Read in 24 hrs could not put it down ! Tess also has the most awesome bestie & wingman in Max’s cousin - great secondary characters as well …
The only reason I did not rate a 5 is because I wanted MORE …
I have mixed feelings with this book. It's almost as though one author wrote the first half and another author finished it. Or the first half is maybe a second or third draft and the last half a polished book. The writing, dialogue, story flow, etc. in the first half came off as stiff and unnatural. Somewhere along the line, it all changed. The writing felt more polished, smoothed out, and not at all clunky, and I was immersed in the story.
Despite the "station" in life these two held, I loved the down-to-earth insecurities, played up with mixed signals and misread situations. The mother was an excellent villain, but it would have helped to give her some humanity too. I enjoyed how the story played out at the end. But a major event came across as a little too deus ex machina to neatly tie it all up.
As someone else mentioned, the repetition of Tess's gay best friend's comments regarding her outfits, and how "hot" and fabulous she looked every time, and how all the men would be drooling... monotonous and unimaginative.
And the sex scenes... again, in the beginning, awkward and clunky. I didn't feel the passion so much as mechanics of body parts, almost uncomfortable to read. These scenes also improved as the story moved forward.
Had the quality of writing and story flow been there from the beginning, this would have been a solid four or five stars. As is, it's generous for me at three.
Maximilian is a businessman, one who brought the family business back from the brink of death to the top. I did not expect him to let loose and be able go without work and business. I was wrong. Dead wrong! Their chemistry is buzzing and addictive.
Teresa, or Tess for friends and co-workers, except for her father, has tried to build up her career without the help from her father.
The book kept me on my toes. With every page, I fell for the characters. Both Maximilian and Tess are well developed and that bound me to the book every time I had to put it down. There was a lot going on with the plot and the story but because the book in novel length, it was ideal.
Play a Game With Me had a minor subplot of a romantic relationship that was very well incorporated without pushing attention away from the main plot. All the interesting secondary characters gave me a myriad of emotions, from anger to love to disbelief. I never thought about stopping until I finished the book.
The climax was action filled and if there was any anger around, the climax fixed that.
Got to tell you, I am going to have a book hangover over this one.
