Oh my goodness! This is now my favourite book in the series, I loved absolutely everything about it. In fact I am too excited to right a proper review with full sentences so instead here’s a list of three main three things I loved about Games of the Heart: Marvelous Mike: I wasn’t sure what to expect from Mike, he is such a nice guy in all the other books, I was half expecting him to be a little boring. Bah! What a fool I was! He was all good boy on the surface, but his alpha male was fully unleashed in the bedroom where he was demanding and dirty. He reminded me a little of Hank Nightingale from the Rock Chick series actually, another one of my favourite KA heroes.
Delightful Dusty: Loved her! She was a little different from a usual KA heroine in that she seemed to have more confidence and she was the one to make the first move on Mike. But she was also sweet and funny and protective of those she loves so despite her stealing my man Mike, I couldn’t help but like her.
The Cute & Adorable Teen Tale: Fin and Rees, what a couple, I loved their romance so much that it almost eclipsed the main couple, Mike and Dusty. I loved how she described Clarisse (although whenever I heard her name in my head I was thinking Silence of the Lambs!) that uncertainty about herself and her talents reminded me so much teenagerdom when you are so full of hormones you don’t know what the hell is going on. And Fin, wow, I don’t think I have ever met a 17 year old like him, it feels wrong but I was a little in love with him myself.
I have loved this series so far and I can’t wait for the next book to come out, once again Kristen Ashley has penned a winner.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
