Love and Other Games
Review Tour Stop & Giveaway!

LOVE AND OTHER GAMES is a collection of sexy new adult stories centered around athletes competing in the Winter Games by Ana Blaze, Melinda Dozier, Aria Kane and Kara Leigh Miller.

Worth More Than Gold by Ana Blaze
Amy Pierce, the klutzy sister and manager of America's Skating Sweetheart, is used to being invisible. but when a friend drags her to a party near the Olympic Village, Amy catches the eye of a sexy Norwegian ski jumper. It's a magical night, but an awkward next morning has her running.

Everyone knows Erik Andresen's best shot at an individual medal was back in 2010, before an injury pulled him from competition. He's there for his team but a hot night and a remarkable last training session have him wondering if his gorgeous good-luck charm could give him another chance at the podium.

With a little bit of luck, these two might have a shot at something worth more than gold.

Trouble with Gold by Melinda Dozier
US snowboarder and notorious prankster, Ty (Trouble) Madsen is only getting a taste of his own medicine with his Olympic teammates shackle him to a fence wearing nothing but his boxers.

Reception and protocol volunteer, Nadia Hoffman, gets up close and personal with the sexy snowboarder to rescue him, but she's not the kind of girl who lets her hormones get in her way. A professional performance could help her land her dream job at the Olympic Committee Headquarters, but her new assignment supervising the rambunctious US Snowboarding Team is making that difficult. Can she see bend the snowman in the community center bathroom and into the warm heart of a man everyone calls trouble?

The Girl Behind the Gold by Aria Kane
Greek aerial skier Lia Milonas's parents are about to lose the family farm. Saving it means medaling and landing a huge sponsor. While her no-nonsense attitude has her well on her way to a medal, it hasn't won her a place in fans' hearts.

"Come back with a story that will make the readers cry, or don't come back." This is what Brandon James' boss told him before he left New York to cover the Winter Games for Moment Magazine. With a  wink and a smile, he can charm his way into any invite-only-party, but that career-making story is nowhere to be found- until he meets Lia.

The two strike a deal that should get them both what they want- but neither would have guessed they'd also find what they need.

Ice Gold by Kara Leigh Miller
Colton Campbell thrives on the fast paced, adrenaline rushed lifestyle of being an Olympic hockey player.

Despite Brenna Jessup's abhorrence for the games and the athletes, she's hand-picked as the official photographer for the U.S. Olympic Hockey Team.

When a faux pas by Brenna almost cost Colton his career, she owes him. Too bad for her, Colton doesn't want apologies.- he wants retribution! And he knows just how to get it-- and her in the process.

If you are looking for a collection of romances to get you in the mood for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games this is the series for you. This collection of delightful short stories will leave you with dreams of sexy athletes and wondering what really is going on behind the scenes at the real games.

I loved each of these stories, they are well written and each author paints a beautiful picture in their specific story within the collection. I liked them so much I found it hard to pick a favorite, however I may or may not have been doodling the name Colton Campbell in my notes for this review.
