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. No way could he want a serious relationship with her...or could he?

My 5 Star Review

OMG! I loved this book so hard! I am talking, texting my book besties while reading to tell them about my intense love for this new book. 

To say we run in different crowds is putting it mildly, He’s older than me by two years. He’s in a frat and I’m not in a sorority. He’s rich as hell and I am most assuredly not. There is absolutely no reason whatsoever for him to know I exist and I am fine with that. 

Jade Frost is a freshman, quick witted and feisty. She is attending an underground poker game with her then boyfriend Joel, when she meets Shepley Prescott for the first time. Joel is losing big time and out of resources when he accepts Jade as a term in the bet. As you guess, he loses Jade to none other than The Shepley Prescott.

Shep is entitled, wealthy, and has the reputation of a sex-god and he hasn’t even reached his senior year of college. He has won a lot of odd prizes, but never a girl. A person isn’t really something you can claim, but Shep expects to be compensated through some means. 

This is where the story gets unputable-down. The banter and flirtatious between Shep and Jade had me eager to turn the page and see what happened next. The build up, hype and angst just added to the thrill and addictiveness of the story. 

She acts like she hates me most of the time and I fucking love it for some twisted reason. She’s a challenge. No girl is a challenge for me. Ever. 

Fair Game is about a guy who is used to getting his way, he can flirt or buy his way into anything he wants, but Jade isn’t so easy. Jade is a girl with morals, values, and refuses to bow down to his demands. I love seeing Shep gradually wear her down and earn his place in her life. 

This story is why I love reading. It is fast paced, fun, sexy and had me so freaking excited and eager to turn the page. I highly recommend Fair Game!

I just got fucked by Shep Prescott and lord help me, I think he’s spoiled me for anyone else.
