New Release Review: The Game by Vi Keeland


Title: The Game
Author: Vi Keeland
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 16, 2023


It started out like any other Tuesday.

I spent twelve hours writing algorithms for one of the largest companies in the world and then came home to work on a pet project of mine—feeding facts about the men I knew into a formula to find my perfect match before my twenties came barreling to a close.

But then a man knocked on my door and handed me some papers that turned my life upside down.

Apparently, a father I never knew existed had left me something in his will. That something turned out to be part ownership in a professional football team.

Next thing I knew, I was learning a sport I knew nothing about by spending time with the team’s quarterback who was out with an injury, a man who my formula would definitely determine was all wrong for me.

Christian Knox was too handsome and confident for his own good and could have any woman he wanted. Only lately the only woman he seemed to want was me.

But there was no way I was getting involved when I was now his boss, even if he was insanely gorgeous and had the dirtiest mouth I’d ever come across.

It would be wrong, wouldn’t it?

Probably. But you know what they say about things that are wrong...sometimes they feel so right.



My review: 5 stars!

Christian Knox is hands-down one of my favorite book heroes. He was so charming and I loved how he patiently wooed our heroine Bella. I always find Vi Keeland's books to be hard to put down, and The Game was no exception. There was everything I love about romance novels- witty banter, scorching chemistry, and characters I'd love to hang out with. Keeland always gives her readers unique premises and situations, and I loved that Bella was a female owner of the football team that Knox played for. (And this Okie also loved that Knox's brother played for a team in my state- we totally need an pro team here!) I laughed, I longed right along with Bella and Knox, and I positively swooned!
