Troubled Aussie football star, Rhett Williams' infamous off-field misdemeanours land him in front of his club's board with an ultimatum: clean up his bad-boy image or lose his contract.
There's one catch: appear on a reality show to reinvent himself.
Football is Rhett's lifeblood, but his family and the orchard farm in the country where he grew up means more, especially as his family relies on his wage to keep the business afloat. So Rhett puts his opinion of reality shows aside to concentrate on doing whatever it takes to be re-signed.
Career-focussed TV mentor, Tori Winchester doesn't have time for men, or a social life, which suits her fine. When Rhett Williams arrives on set with his blond beach hair and his mesmerising blue eyes, her resolve begins to crumble. He's not the spoiled bad boy casting had told her to expect.
Getting involved with someone like Rhett could not only damage her long-term career prospects, they could both lose everything.
In a game of cat and mouse, Rhett is playing the one game he doesn't want to win...

My Rating: 3.5 Favorite Quotes: I haven’t had a boyfriend in years either. So long that all my orifices have been reinstated to virginal status. Some mistakes can be prevented… Others are meant to happen. My Review: Winning the Game had an interesting premise, amusing and entertaining storylines, and a few interesting and endearing characters, although the vast majority of the cast were dishearteningly shallow, manipulative, and self-serving. I grew increasingly annoyed and disappointed with the main character of Tori as her seesawing, waffling, and deceit became increasingly tiresome and tedious. Rhett was highly likable and cleverly amusing bad boy, although he had been forced into participating in a “scripted drama” reality program under duress to save his sports career, and I felt considerable empathy for him as he had been blackmailed into cooperating with ambitious network vipers’ and had been exploited by everyone by the end of the story. Among the angst and backstabbing and between the Tori’s flip-flopping, a covert yet sweet and steamy romance was blooming. Of course, those were my favorite chapters.
OMG, what a great read this book is. This is my first book by Leesa Bow and I am so happy to have found this great Australian author. After reading so many American authors I found it so refreshing and entertaining to read a story set in Australia, my home country. I loved the Aussie lingo and references. The author’s style of writing is very good, her description of her characters made you feel so much of their emotions. There was only one plot moment that I knew was going to happen other than that she kept me guessing about what was going to happen next. It is full of up’s and down’s, twists and turns that will keep you wanting more of these characters. I received a free copy of the book and have voluntarily written an honest review.
