Chris St. James is ready for normal. After walking away from her pro tennis career and a toxic relationship with a star hockey player, she's starting a new life as a teacher and tennis coach in a small town. Now all she needs is an average guy to share it with.Brett Wallace is no average guy. Forced to retire from the NFL after an injury—and suddenly single after being dumped by his status-conscious wife—he's returned to his hometown to coach the varsity football team. Wary of women interested only in his celebrity, Brett finds Chris's indifference to his former career refreshing.
The last thing Chris needs is to get involved with another pro athlete, but she can't deny the sparks that fly between them. So she agrees to a purely physical, no-strings-attached affair. But the rules of the game change when she falls for him…85,000 words

It was so much fun reading The Game of Love. I really enjoyed it and now I want more from Jeanette Murray. 

Both characters, Brett and Chris were hilarious and the sexual tension between the two was steaming off the pages. Whenever these two were in a room together or just standing next to each other, I wanted to scream "Kiss already!" Chris has a past and her past has left some scars that when she sees Brett she can't help but dislike him. But the more time she spent around Brett the more he surprises her. Brett too has a past that left some scars and at first he thinks it's best to not even pursue Chris, but in the end his attraction to her wins. He can't help but find her funny and super sexy.

I really enjoyed the way Murray developed their relationship. It wasn't super-fast, but it wasn't super-slow. It moved at a very good pace and so did the story. There wasn't a moment I wanted to put the book down. The ending will leave you at the edge of your seat holding your breath and then the next smiling from ear to ear. A Good Choice for Reading!

Five out of Five stars!
