How do you know when fake turns real?
Abi Cook lives her life by her own rules. She works hard, plays hard, and knows who she is and where she wants to be.
Following a repeat one-night stand with the dashing Dr. Cade Carsen, Cade asks Abi for a favor: be the fake girlfriend on his arm for the duration of his father's mayoral campaign.
Never one to turn down a challenge, she doesn't hesitate. I mean, who wouldn't when all that's involved is a little fake girlfriending with a side of hot sex, and with Doctor Hottie no less?
But like any Game, there are always twists and turns, unexpected players, villains, heroes and ultimately, winners and losers.
Game Saver is the story of what happens when two happily single people try for something less, but end up with something so much more.
This was my first BJ Harvey book, and I have to say I enjoyed it. I really love the whole friends with benefits trope in romances, and how it of course always ends up being more than either party bargained for in the end. I know this book has ties to some other books in a series, but you honestly don’t need to have read any of the other books, although judging my the big cast of secondary characters if you have read the books you will probably enjoy seeing some old friends.
So our heroine in this book is Abi, and I really like her. She’s a really confident, independent woman. I like how sure she is of herself, and her blunt honesty. I don’t think she could ever be a person who lies a lot, mostly because she almost lacks like a bit of filter, which I kind of loved. I like that she’s not ashamed of some of her life choices, including being a stripper to get out of debt. I also like that she is well educated and works two jobs.
Our hero is Cade, who is basically a trust fund baby from very wealthy and let’s call it self-important family. The great thing about Cade is that while he appreciated being able to go to med school without any student loans, he really does not like the whole idea of his wealthy family, and he works hard for what he has. I liked how throughout the book he bucks up against his parents and how controlling they try to be. He has a couple of alpha traits, but not to much, man knows how to talk dirty, and apparently he is very skilled in the bedroom.
I really liked the dynamics between Abi and Cade, they have a great banter, and they are great in the bedroom, and you could just tell from the beginning of the book that they really just fit together. It was easy to root for them right from the beginning. I will admit that I was wondering where the conflict was going to come in for these two, and I figured it would come from Cade’s super controlling family, and I was right, but I guess I was hoping for a bit more of a showdown between Cade and his family, there was a lot of build up, but not quite the dramatic show down I wanted. The book itself was a fast read, and it was really enjoyable for me. I would easily read another book by this author.
