Sweet, funny & brittle

Game On Victoria Denault (Hometown Players #6)

First up, I absolutely loved this book. The shades of light and dark are so powerful. It’s a masterclass in romance writing.

It was nothing I was expecting and thank god for that! I read it in one sitting, I could not leave it alone

As the hero Alex is simply wonderful. At times he’s sweet, funny and easy going and you can see why he is everyone’s best friend. And then he’s brittle, hurt, childlike. I hurt for him, I wanted to take care of him. Yet, it was obvious that wasn’t what was needed, and you had to like Brie for knowing that.

I liked how both Brie and Alex had their own prejudices about each other that slowly dissolved, and the way Brie convinced him to take a chance had my heart thumping! And their first meeting was so super cute!

Often I don’t like writing from the two different POVs but this was so well done it felt real. It’s so biographical in detail, it’s hard to remember that Alex is a fictional character.

I really hope that people will pick this up, it doesn’t matter if you’ve read the other books in the series or not. It’s such a lovely read that it will completely devour you.
