Game On: Review

Today I have the pleasure of reviewing Kyra Lennon's d├ębut novel, contemporary romance, Game On.

After swapping her small town life to work for one of the top soccer teams in the U.S, Leah Walker thought she could finally leave the ghosts of her past behind. However, when she meets serial womanizer, Radleigh McCoy, the memories of her old life come swarming back, and she is forced to ask herself whether she has really changed at all.

I must have read this book at least 50 times, as I critiqued it for Kyra, and it hasn't lost it's magic. In fact, with each new read, I pick up on a detail I've missed, or find an new dimension to a character.

Leah is a compelling protagonist. Witty, friendly, genuine and most importantly flawed. It would be so easy to make her the perfect woman, but Kyra didn't, Leah is entirely human, believable and relatable.

Radleigh McCoy is the bad boy every woman wants to tame, but once you scratch the surface, you discover he's a deep guy full of human intricacies. Finding out what makes him tick is almost as intriguing as discovering if he and Leah get together or not.

Supporting Leah and Radleigh, are a background cast of wonderfully real secondary characters, all of whom could easily walk right into everyday life, and each add something special to the story.

Game On is a moving, emotional, very real contemporary romance filled with fun, friendship, laughter, and a look on the human condition. Discovering why these characters act the way they do is an incredible part of the journey.

There's twists and turns throughout that will leave you guessing where Leah and Radleigh will end up, but an ending that leaves you completely satisfied.

One of the best contemporary romances I've read in years, and a story I could read over and over again.
