#REVIEW – Control Games (Game for Cookies Book 2) by Allyson Lindt

Julie is living her dream.

She’s opening a video-game themed cookie bouquet shop with her best friend. But even dreams come with stress and sleepless nights.

Their primary investor, Dante, is as overbearing in real life as he is on his award winning cooking show. On the other hand, he’s sexy as hell, and his boyfriend, Christopher, is as kind as he is a gorgeous, drool-worthy geek of a guy.

She likes looking, but she’d rather have a hands-on experience.

When the tension of trying to keep her business together threatens to tear Julie apart, Christopher’s got a solution for teaching her to share the workload. If she can surrender control in the bedroom, it might help her delegate in the office.

Is submission worth the cost?

What starts as game where blindfolds and submission are the board pieces becomes more serious. Until Julie discovers that Dante and Christopher have kept a secret from her that shatters her trust, leaving their hearts and jobs one move away from game over.

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

First off. Oh Christopher. Ooohlala.

So I was intrigued by Julie and Dante’s not so nice relationship while reading the first book. And when I realized they were getting their book, I knew this was going to be fun. The only thing I wished because I’m a freak and all, was that the first BIG fight they had, ended up in crazy hot intense sex. But I got why it didn’t happen. The tension was INSANE and it drove me nuts. But I also loved it. I’m a masochist that way.

I really loved the dynamic between this trio but I have to say, that I REALLY loved Christopher’s character. I’m partial to Dominant men so maybe that’s why? Either way, all three characters worked well together. I hope the author does more to this series although I’m not sure what other side characters could get stories. Either way, I’m satisfied if there is no more.

Now onto the next book!

#REVIEW – Seduction Games (Game for Cookies Book 1) by Allyson Lindt

Andi’s been denied funding—again—to expand her cookie business, and walked in on her boyfriend screwing another woman. Saying she’s had better days is an understatement.

Kane and Isaiah, her online gaming partners and the cutest couple ever as far as Andi’s concerned, know exactly how to cheer her up. They’re thinking road trip to Las Vegas, compete in a national first person shooter competition for a cash grand prize, and find her a one night stand to take her mind off her cheating ex.

Andi’s all in… except she’s not sure she can seduce a random hookup. Isaiah and Kane offer to give her some hands-on experience. With each new lesson, it becomes harder for Andi to remember the guys are just friends.

If Andi can’t put some distance between their seductive three-way hookups and her heart, it will cost their team the competition, and she’ll lose two of the best friends she’s ever had.

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously released as Will Game for Cookies (For the Win Book 1)

Twinsie Jo’s Review:

I was looking for a book last night. I had no idea what I wanted to read but then I came across this one. And I’m SO glad I gave it a chance. Hot boys and gaming? Yes please! NERD alert! Now, I don’t play. I used to play like Zelda and stuff but nothing more than that but the fact that there are competitions for games, fascinates me. But anyway, let’s review.

Andi has her heart broken something fierce. Buuuut…is it really that broken? James was a douche canoe and I personally would just be more embarrassed over it than anything.

Andi and her two team mates, head to a gaming competition in Vegas and the sparks fly during this trip. I have to say that Kane’s hot and cold bothered me but that’s good! It means the author did something right. But when everything gets revealed, *swoon*, it was just everything I could hope for in an ending.

Also, the fact that Andi and her best friend are trying to run a cookie business, is even more reason to fall in love with this story.
