Games by Brianne Day

9 months away from Audrey’s ex didn’t seem like long enough.

Audrey thought she had been able to let go. She had tried so hard but the scarring wasn’t just skin deep, he had marred her soul. After a moment of weakness Carson is back but at what cost? Her life or someone that she loves?

Brock has it all figured out until his thoughtlessness lands him on Audrey doorstep. Clothed Audrey would have been hard enough to resist but half naked Audrey? No chance.

He struggles with accepting the new whirlwind of emotions she invokes in him and getting involved with her psychotic ex. But when Audrey’s life is on the line, just how far will he go to protect the woman he can’t stop thinking about?

Author Brianne Day is a new author to me. But when I was given a chance to read this book, I knew I had to jump at the opportunity. This story is available in paperback right now, but there is an ebook release scheduled for December 6th, 2016.

I liked the overall concept of this book. From the synopsis, we know that Audrey has an insane ex, named Carson. Audrey meets Brock through her sister, Ari. Brock happens to be a mechanic and runs his own garage, and he’s helping Audrey with her broken down truck.

I really liked Brock’s character. I thoroughly enjoyed his character, and I loved how sweet he was. Brock is truly a thoughtful guy. Another aspect I appreciated was that even though he is trying to figure out what is happening, in regards to the ex, his feelings for Audrey don’t waiver.

Audrey’s character was a bit harder for me to like. I think part of that is because she sort of keeps letting Carson back in her life at certain points. It was somewhat hard to understand her true intent. I know that part of that may be the portrayal of someone who has been abused, but it still did confuse me a bit.

Based on what I just said, I will say I wished this book was longer. Its listed as being 150 pages on Amazon. The story did move quickly, which I liked. I think I just felt it was a bit too much story for such a physically shorter story. I truly enjoyed the concept, I just wish that it could have developed even more.

Overall, I did enjoy this story. I was definitely able to stay interested in the story throughout, and I am excited to read more from this new author.
