Game for Marriage - Karen Erickson I'm a publicist with Entangled, but Karen Erickson is not my client. I'm writing this disclaimer because her book is published by Entangled. I've been a pretty active book reviewer for years, but I wanted to make all the above clear before you read my review. Many might say my opinion is swayed because of my affiliation, but I'll leave that up to you to judge.She had me with the tagline, "He’s going in deep to make her his…"I swear, every time I read a contemporary romance and love it, I'm shocked. You can tell by my review history, I read mostly fantasy. Not to mention, I own the Fantasy Book Addict website. I guess you could say my tastes are evolving. When I need a change of pace, I go into these contemporary romance binges. That's how I ended up reading, Game for Marriage.Can I just say I loved this book and leave it at that? No, okay, I'll elaborate. The story was the first aspect that peeked my interest. Ever since reading, Tempting the Player by J. Lynn, I've been looking for a romance with an athlete. Since this is football season, this book totally grabbed my attention. Once I got into the story, I fell hard for Jared Quinn. He's my kind of guy: tough, tortured, and sexy-as-hell! I flew through the pages. Actually, I finished reading it in one afternoon. In the past, I've always steered clear of contemporary romance because of the crappy, weak female characters. This is so not true with Sheridan Harper. She has her own opinions and she doesn't take any of his crap. She wasn't interested in him for his fame or money (although she was down on her luck by no fault of her own). She was worth cheering for!Bottom line: If you love sexy contemporary romance, you absolutely must read this. I've already been bugging Karen for information on the next book in the series.
