book blurb

 Bad enough Jade Frost’s boyfriend drags her to a boring poker game. Even worse that he actually threw her into the betting pot during an intense round…and lost. Talk about the perfect excuse for Jade to make him her ex-boyfriend.

Now she supposedly belongs to the ultra rich, extremely gorgeous Shep Prescott. He could have anything he wants yet he seems to be in hot pursuit of her. No matter how rude, how snarky, how impossible she acts, it doesn’t stop him. More like her horrible behavior seems to make him want her more.

When she finds herself starting to fall for him, Jade’s confused. There’s more to Shep than the carefree rich charmer he portrays. He has secrets. And she wants to discover them, no matter how ugly they might be…

my review

5 Stars

I am in LOVE with the Rules Series.  Right from the first moments, you are charmed by the characters – well maybe not Jade’s boyfriend but that’s on him.  Fair Game is hilarious and sweet. The chemistry between Shep and Jade – off the freaking charts.  They are very likable characters, so in turn you are quickly invested in the two becoming a couple.  The promise of what they will be has you cheering them on.

I absolutely love it when a cocky male character meets his match and not only does she make him work for her affection, but she makes him work toward being a better version of himself.  You know that all the hijinks, wooing and foreplay will lead to an epic showdown where they give into their lust.  You anticipate the moment they individually realize they’ve lost their hearts to love because you already have.  You fall in love with their love.

Monica Murphy wrote an incredible romance book.  I laughed out loud.  I swooned.  Shep and Jade’s love story leaves you wanting more because they are so awesome.  I could not put their book down.

Fair Game is the first book released in this series and it is not a cliffhanger.  The following two books are about Shep’s best friends and I seriously cannot wait to read about them falling in love – it’s going to be an awesome ride!! I definitely recommend you start this series, it is fun and highly entertaining.
