He controls the game, but she’s rewriting all the rules…
Marley Lake is no stranger to awkwardness, but getting caught watching a dirty GIF by the company’s hot new IT guy exceeds even her standards. That is, until she realizes he's as turned on by it as she is. But with a big promotion on the line, she refuses to let her current dry spell be her downfall. Maybe.
Austin Rivers has no business lusting after the irresistible editor of Gamers Magazine. He's a secret partner in the business—and technically Marley’s boss. One look at that GIF, though, and he’s ready to install a whole lot more than just software…as long as she never finds out who he really is.
But reality’s not as virtual as it seems, and when Austin’s identity jeopardizes Marley’s promotion, he has to change his game or risk losing the only woman with the cheat code to his heart.
Can I tell you how happy I am with the number of sexy nerdy guy books that have been coming out lately? Up until recently, I’ve found nerds sadly underrepresented in books, and I’m thrilled authors are taking note. Especially when it’s the trifecta of THREE of my favorite authors who have written dirty, nerdy guys first. And Changing His Game? Holy. Hell. ALL THE STARS! So much awesome geeky goodness. I don’t even know where to start.
To say I was sucked into this book from the very beginning would be a total understatement. I seriously couldn’t put it down. I loved the characters. Marley was the perfect type of awkward and her initial meeting with Austin had me freaking out because I can *only* imagine how mortified she must’ve been. I was beyond embarrassed for her! Like, hide under the desk and never come out again embarrassed. Austin was so freaking perfect. There’s something about a hot nerdy guy that just does it for me. Nerdy on the outside, total alpha male behind closed doors? Yes, please.
This book is HOT. No. That doesn’t even begin to cover it. It’s Tessa Bailey book HOT. Austin has a dirty, dirty mouth and I freaking loved it. Well done, Megan, for writing scenes that left me with my jaw on the floor and wishing for an Austin of my own. I knew she could write sexy, but ja-he-sus. I thought for sure my iPad was going to catch fire. And seriously, if anyone knows where I can find an Austin of my own, let me know, huh? He’s pretty much my perfect guy.
The romance was wonderful, sexy and swoony. The storyline was just plain FUN. I giggled my way through several scenes. I couldn’t get enough of the chemistry between Marley and Austin. Their dialogue was witty and flirty and I just loved them so much together. There are also some great secondary characters in this book and I can’t wait for the series to continue so I can learn more about them.
If you’re looking for your next favorite book, and you’re a fan of sexy reads with humor and heart, you should pick up Changing His Game. Nerd is the new hot and Austin is incredible. I have a new book boyfriend, y’all, and there’s no way guys in real life can live up to him!
