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 HeartMarvelous 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.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?

Thanks for the enthusiastic review. I haven’t read anything by this author yet but you have certainly convinced me that I should give her a try. All 4 characters look interesting & I can’t wait to “Meet” them.
