In GAME OF LOVE...
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 United States. 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?

I found this series when I got the first book free, and I had to have them all. Loved this story and the families!

I could only read about a 100 pages. So dull and REDUNDANT. So MUCH narrative, UGH! Way TOO much self deprecation from the protagonists. PLEASE, authors, don't inundate us with so much information about secondary characters (for up in coming series) when we just want to read through this romance first! It's two pages of narrative before the hero answers a simple yes or no question from the heroine. I'd forgotten the question! Forgotten what they were talking about and almost dosed off. How the h*** did this book get such a high rating? Won't be reading more of this series. S.A.K.

First things first, this review is long overdue. I was in vacation-mode, and a little bit under the weather. Sorry. Allow me to start my review by asking: where can I find these men Melissa Foster has been writing about? First the Bradens, now the Remingtons! If you think you have seen the best men Ms. Foster has to offer when you read the Bradens series, it was only the tip of the iceberg. I think my heart just dilated a bit, because I couldn’t allow Dex not to be in it! Dex Remington is a gamer. He makes video games for a living, but he doesn’t really encourage people to make it their priorities. Instead, he still thinks education is important, and despite the huge promises of sales from his video games, he still wants children to have a life off the computer. He’s sensitive, loyal to a fault, and when he loves, awww, he loves with every thread of his being. That’s why when Ellie Parker, his best friend, left without a word four years ago leaving his heart broken and tattered into pieces. Now she was back in his life – will his love be enough to make her stay? Or will he constantly watch the door, paranoid that she might bail on him again? "I can’t be another pit stop. I won’t be another pit stop." Ellie Parker is a runner. She is a product of the system, and knew how tough life can be. She had sampled it, it was bitter, good thing she had someone to run to when things get a little out of hand. Dex Remington’s window is always open for her. His arms would be ready to welcome her. He was her safety, her comfort. He was too good for her. She had nothing to offer, so instead of staying, she had to go. But a sudden twist of fate had brought them back together, and this time she would do everything to glue her feet on the ground. She was done running. Now, how to make him believe her? I adore these two characters. Usually, I’m not into sensitive guys, I think their lame. But not Dex, despite his sensitive, he still oozes with confidence that I didn’t dare question his manliness. I understand that he was hurt, and he just wanted to protect his heart. It was just heartbreaking to see him paranoid and waiting for Ellie to break her word and run. As for Ellie, GIRL: HOW CAN YOU LEAVE HIM? He is perfect for you! They were perfect for each other. They didn’t need words to converse, they understood each other in silence. They were each other’s comfort and strength. Crossing my fingers, I was hoping Ellie wouldn’t run away again. Dex has been through enough. Ellie is a very strong girl, strong enough to rise from everything she had underwent through the system. She strived, and wished to make a difference to kids who are in the same situation as she was before. Melissa Foster always gives me the unexpected. I know I would love the characters, I just know I would feel pain, and maybe cry a little, and I always know I will fall in love, but there would always be something new, there would always be something unexpected that will throw me off guard and my jaws would widen in surprise. This time, the big surprise was the father. I was ready to hate him. After all the things he did to Dex, I was prepared for lashing it out on him. Imagine my surprise when he turned out to be different. He was a general, it was expected that he comes a bit strong, but what he did secretly for Dex – I didn’t really see it coming. His family, just like the Bradens, were completely diversified. If the Bradens lost their mother in an early age, the Remingtons had a wonderful, outgoing mother who babied her children despite their age, and a stern father who taught them how to be tough. Their mother had taught them love, and showed them how much to cover for their father’s inability to show his emotions. But despite this fact, their father had loved them and shows it in a different manner that will touch your hearts as well. I look forward for more Remingtons, and excited to read Sage’s story as well!
