Series: The Game, #2


She's in love with him.
He's trying not to love her.
One night changes everything.

Aston Banks never meant to get close to Megan Harper - not even for that one night. Haunted by a childhood he refuses to face, he knew she could break through every wall he'd ever built and tear them down without even realizing she was doing it.

Betraying Braden by starting a relationship with Aston wasn't on Megan's to-do list, but the second she sees a glimpse of someone other than the arrogant ass she's come to know, she can't walk away.

Aston's childhood is worse than Megan ever guessed, but as he tries and fails to push her away, it's clear her love is stronger than the demons that cling to him every day. And now, because of it, he finally has to deal with what he's buried deep down.

What he doesn't want to face. What he's fought against for so long.

And they have to do it all without Braden finding out.

Keeping a relationship a secret has never been harder.

My Review 

I love this book just as much as the first one! That doesn't often happen; usually the second in a series is good, but not as good as the first. Well this book changes that! Megan and Aston are so cute together and help each other in so many ways. I felt so bad for Aston as his childhood was slowly revealed, and it explains why he acts like such an arrogant prick. He starts to open up and show who he really is. I also really love his 'Gramps' in this book - he reminds me of my grandpa and I just love it! (: Emma Hart definitely knows how to write a great romance with everything in it - hot, steamy love scenes, laughter, friendship, love, and a little friendly bickering. Every now and then (more than I actually admit) I need a really fun romance to break up all the heavy-feelings, though-provoking books that generally fill up my shelves. I can't wait to get the third and fourth books in this series! I highly recommend the series if you like fun, easy-to-read romances. You won't be disappointed.
