Blog Tour – Book Review – Game of Love by Melissa Foster

Game of LoveThe Blurb:

Ellie Parker is a master at building walls around her heart. In the twenty-five years she’s been alive, Dex Remington has been the only person who has always believed in her and been there for her. But four years earlier she came to Dex seeking comfort, and then disappeared like a thief in the night, leaving him a broken man.


Dex Remington is one of the top PC game developers in the U.S. He’s handsome, smart, and numb. So damn numb that he’s not sure he’ll ever find a reason to feel again.


A chance encounter sparks intense desires in Ellie and Dex. Desires that make her want to run—and make him want to feel. A combination of lust and fear leads these young lovers down a dangerous path. Is it possible to cross a burned bridge or are they destined to be apart forever?

The Review:

I have finally found something by Melissa Foster that just didn’t trip my trigger. The book had a sexy alpha male and a strong female who has gone through hell and come out the other side of it. It even had plenty of action between the sheets, but for some reason this book just didn’t do it for me. The writing was great, the characters were wonderful, but I just didn’t enjoy the book. It wasn’t that I had to make myself read it or anything, it was interesting, it was just that there was never that “Oh my gosh, I absolutely have to know what happens next” factor. I could and did pick the book up and put it back down several times with no angst over what was happening to the characters in the meantime and to me that is what makes a page turning romance. When I HAVE to know what’s next or I won’t be able to sleep. This book just fell short of that for me.
