The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan

Title: The Game Plan (Game On, Book 3)
Author: Kristen Callihan

A beard-related dare and one hot-as-hell kiss changes everything.

NFL center Ethan Dexter’s focus has always been on playing football and little else. Except when it comes to one particular woman. The lovely Fiona Mackenzie might not care about his fame, but she’s also never looked at him as anything more than one of her brother-in-law’s best friend. That ends now.

Fi doesn’t know what to make of Dex. The bearded, tattooed, mountain of man-muscle looks more like a biker than a football player. Rumor has it he’s a virgin, but she finds that hard to believe. Because from the moment he decides to turn his quiet intensity on her she’s left weak at the knees and aching to see his famous control fully unleashed.

Dex is looking for a forever girl, but they live vastly different lives in separate cities. Fi ought to guard her heart and walk away. But Dex has upped his game and is using all his considerable charm to convince Fi he's her forever man.

Game On

Finally readers will get their hands on Dex's story! Let me start by saying if you haven't read the Game On Series by Kristen Callihan yet. you are truly missing out on some tremendous stories. Each can be read as a stand alone, so don't be intimidated that The Game Plan is Book 3. However, once you get a taste of one, you'll be dying to tear through the other stories in the series.

What I loved going into Dex and Fiona's story is how little I actually knew about these characters. They've played the supporting role in the series so far, but even then I felt like I have only been exposed to a sliver of their personalities and background. Being so unfamiliar made delving into their story that much more enticing. I was hooked from the first paragraphs and couldn't force myself to put the book down. I just had to continue and read "just one more chapter".

What I loved about our hero and heroine's dynamic was how different they were but how well their chemistry worked when together. Dex will make readers melt. The man is a wall of sexy muscle coupled with a tender heart and a love for children. Melt. Melt. Melt. Fiona was easy to identify with. All around her, people are coupling off and finding their forever while she's still trudging through meaningless relationships. Dex is everything she needs but never knew she wanted.

I cannot recommend The Game Plan by Kristen Callihan enough. It may be my favorite book in the Game On Series (so far). Readers are going to devour Dex and Fiona's story and love every word of their electric and captivating connection.
