I would definitely recommend this book.
I haven’t had a boyfriend in years either. So long that all my orifices have been reinstated to virginal status.
Some mistakes can be prevented… Others are meant to happen.
Winning the Game had an interesting premise, amusing and entertaining storylines, and a few interesting and endearing characters, although the vast majority of the cast were dishearteningly shallow, manipulative, and self-serving. I grew increasingly annoyed and disappointed with the main character of Tori as her seesawing, waffling, and deceit became increasingly tiresome and tedious. Rhett was a highly likable and cleverly amusing bad boy who had been forced into participating in a “scripted drama” reality program under duress to save his sports career. I felt considerable empathy for him as he had been blackmailed into cooperating with ambitious network vipers and had been exploited by everyone by the end of the story. Among the angst and backstabbing and between the Tori’s flip-flopping, a covert yet sweet and steamy romance was blooming. Of course, those were my favorite chapters.
Tori Winchester is busy trying to build her career as a TV mentor who is brought in to help Rhett on the show. She has no time for romance, but it’s funny how love strikes when you least expect it or even want it. As she spends more time with Rhett, she gets to know the man, not the football star the public knows. She’s finding it hard to resist him.
I loved the relationship between Tori and Rhett. Yes, there is an amazing attraction, yet I loved their friendship and their conversations with one another. As they were learning more about each other and falling in love, so was I. Bow always has a knack for making me do that. Both of them thought they realized what was important to them, but they soon find it isn’t the job that defines them…it’s something much more.
It was interesting to see a look behind reality shows, especially the ones about love. We, as an audience, see one thing, not realizing what goes on behind the scenes. WOW…what an eye opener if this is indeed what goes on. I know when I watched reality shows about finding love, I always wanted the couple to find their HEA. Winning the Game showed me that love in front of the camera is much different than real life.
I really liked the way the epilogue was done. It was divided up into three different time periods, so readers get to see how Rhett and Tori are doing throughout a period..not just jumping to a longer period of time in their future. LOVED it! I know whenever Leesa Bow writes a book, I’m going to love it. She always writes from the heart, and I always see that. That’s why I always fall in love with her stories and her characters. Now, I’ll just patiently have to wait for her next one!!!!
