When a knee injury ends twenty-year-old Quinn Rowland’s pro tennis career, he’s not only dumped by his hot Russian girlfriend but ordered to attend college by his disinterested billionaire father. A rich kid who’s not used to being disappointed by life, Quinn and his sociopathic half-brother Sebastian create a frat house game intended to treat girls how they see them—as simple game pieces to be manipulated for their pleasure.
College sophomore Emilie Swanson knows Quinn’s reputation—after all, he did send one of her sorority sisters into therapy earlier in the semester—but the game and his charm bring them closer together and soon she starts to believe there’s more to Quinn than people think.
But what if the more is something darker than a game of toying with emotions and breaking hearts?
Quinn and Emilie might be falling for each other, but there are secrets he’s not ready to tell—and lifestyle changes he’s reluctant to make. She willingly stepped on the court, but if Emilie finds out she started out as nothing as a pawn in Quinn and Sebastian’s twisted game, she might never forgive him.
To his surprise, Quinn finds that he might finally care about someone more than he cares about himself…even if that means letting Emilie walk away for good.
This is one Smoking book!
I can say I wasn't overly disgusted about the "Game" as I should have been not sure why but I think because I knew that Quinn was going to get it handled to him on sliver platter when he crossed Emile's path. Don't get me wrong the "Game" is beyond appalling but I think what is more appalling is Sebastian. It's a rough road of a love story. Not only did I fall in love with Quinn and Emilie but also Ruby, Emile's smart mouth friend. Ending was Fabulous. On the author's website there is a bonus scene and an epilogue!
"I'm eighteen, and you're broken. I don't have time for a dog."
"I know who you are, dumbass. I don't live in a fucking hole."
"So why not try to make him change his mind about you instead of acting like a guy who just got out of prison and found himself in the middle of spring break weekend?"
