One of my favorite new-found authors,  stumbled a bit with “The Name of the Game.” In this book, two roommates with completely different backgrounds, are forced to face their attraction to each other under false pretense.

One roommate is gay, the other is trying to get out of his suffocating relationship with a possessive woman and uses his friendship with his roommate to break things off in an unusual manner. One thing leads to another… and their friendship grows quickly into something more.

Overall, this was an easy read with one character exploring his sexuality. Unfortunately, it was a bit contrived at parts and quite predictable, but there was just enough turmoil, missed opportunities, and sex to keep it entertaining.

Out of four…
Overall Read: ♥♥♥
Sex Heat: ♥♥
Plot: ♥♥

Read this if you like… An enjoyable read with a predictable plot (and some tame sex thrown in!).

Other authors/books to try (and why you’ll like them):

Both of these authors and series have strong plots and are enjoyable to read. The sex is hot, but still “tame” and the main focus of each book, is on the relationship between the characters.

Hello world!

Well, apparently WordPress is giving me a little push to start blogging! Welcome world is right – I will be posting eBook reviews and hopefully providing you with some suggested reading, based on your reading preferences. I tend to jump from random (aka – obscure) genre to another, and because of that most of my reading options tend to be random finds. Hopefully you will find some useful information to help you choose your next eBook or new favorite author. Happy reading… and if you’re going to read, read it right!
