    FOUR PLAYER STARS One touch two years ago was not enough Everything about this book was pointing towards a gorgeous reading time The title had me interested, the cover is stunning and the blurb had me giddy excited ready to spend my time with a man whore hero and a feisty heroine Overall I m glad to report that once again BJ Harvey delivered what I was expecting and I can t deny that I thoroughly enjoyed my time spent with characters that had me smiling from beginning to end What s it all about Those who have read BJ Harvey s Bliss series will be familiar with this authors canny ability to put together an impressive romantic comedy Following on from her success of this series Harvey has created a new spin off series to fall in love with The first book in the series brings us the story of Matt Taylor and Mia Roberts Both unable to avoid the attraction between them both equally unprepared for the challenge of their game Be prepared to laugh, swoon and cheer this couple from the sidelines as Harvey delivers yet another fantastic romance What did I love I loved the banter between the characters, I loved the way the hero had no choice but to fall in love even though he had no intention of being in a committed relationship I adored that the heroine didn t just roll over and accept his advances and I couldn t get enough of this authors ability to make me smile like only a crazy, romance book addict would understand BJ Harvey has written a brilliantly witty and lusty start to what I know is going to be a fabulous spin off series and I can already forsee that this is going to be a set of books that will be right up my street It s obvious from the start that Matt and Mia are perfectly matched and even though I had my niggles only a few I loved watching this love story unfold A little predictable Possibly, but I wouldn t have had it any other way BJ Harvey has an adorable way of sweeping me off my feet and transporting me right into her romance and comedy Why not five It s hard to come up with much to disagree with when reading a romantic comedy style book by BJ Harvey Her books are just my cup of tea and there s rarely a moment to not enjoy with her quick wit and comedy gold one liners Alas, my five star radar didn t quite signal this time around A little on the short side Maybe Not quite falling head over heels for the heroine I think so Did I struggle with some of the conflict Yes All in all this was a thoroughly enjoyable romance, just not enough to make me convinced that it was five star worthy Final thoughts BJ Harvey is an author that has plenty to bring to the table when it comes to a romantic comedy I don t know many other authors who are able to string together so many brilliant one liners and for that alone it makes me want to pick up all of her releases Thoroughly romantic and hotter than a spa day session in a sauna, Harvey always hits the spot with her character connection and steamy encounters Whether or not you ve been a fan of this author before Game player is a romance that will sweep you of your feet whilst giving you a fabulous comedy journey and I can t wait for from this series and author Enjoy Kisses Purchased stock images were used in this review ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

    WHATEVER 2 STARS JUST FOR MATT WOW I am REALLY REALLY disappointed I thought this would be 4 or 5 star read for me but mehhhh I think author did all the thinking just for the synopsis then forgot it all I really didn t liked the h well like is not the right word, i HATED her Mia was so judgy Like comeon girl it s not like you are a virgin and all If he was a manwhore so let it be it was his past. But NO she was all judging him about his past and not even giving him a fair chance. Mia really made me on the verge of DNF ing this book. But i wanted to see how much she is dragging Matt on the verge for him to leave her But he didn t leave her begged her till the end.So really this book was just about..Mia pushing poor Matt because he USED to have alot of sex with the ladies with no strings attached When Mia herself NEVER had a relationship with anyone.Now how could you judge anyone when you yourself is NOT SO SUBTLE.. Matt, how can i forget him, poor guy did all he can for the bitch Mia but didn t get any appreciation till the end If i was in Mia s shoes, i would ve jumped on his bones But no Mia was soooooooooo good to be with him Right yeah right I was sooo bored just reading her POV and her bitchy attitude toward Matt at 25% but I HAVE to complete it because of MATT And the Plot was really bad too. So, for me i DO NOT recommend this book to anyone.Nor i would read any book of this series and will not repeat this mistake to re read it

    This book has literally sucked all the energy out of my body It was exhausting I m having to use my nose to write this review because my limbs no longer work We started well, the writing was enjoyable so it was easy to read and Matt had a nine incher which always helps But, that s where my positive words end and my rant starts.It wasn t even the whole manwhore thing that bothered me I can deal with that It was Mia The whole woe is me my Daddy cheated on my Mummy and then died so all men are dirty untrustworthy pigs that only want to stuff me with their pork swords and then leave me Waa waa waa SNORES SELF INTO A COMA It went on and on and I ended up HATING this stupid bitch because JEEZ LADY YOU HAVE A HANDSOME HUNG MAN THAT IS WILLING TO GIVE YOU EVERYTHING RIGHT THERE and you re carrying on about useless shit instead of listening to one word he s saying On top of that, I didn t find the sexual nicknames particularly funny A lot of them had me cringing It was too much As were a lot of the group scenes Everyone seems to be related in some way and have 2 million kids each, all of whom we need to know the names and ages of apparently It was just too much.But, if you like your stories over the top and your lead females stupid, then you ll enjoy this It s a shame really because the writing was good.

    Can t say I m really disappointed considering it didn t really pull me in in the beginning I didn t like Mia Thought she was a bitch who didn t deserve Matt and was all judgy towards him She got not respect from, that s what I m saying Why did I ever think I could play the player at his own game Quick basic facts Genre Contemporary Romance Series Stand Alone Spin Off Series Love triangle view spoiler No hide spoiler

    BJ Harvey sets the tone for the Game Series, with this hysterical and at times emotional release Game Player features Matt Taylor, the boy made famous in the Bliss Series by his scratch n stiff technique Younger brother to Noah Taylor the original Walking Dildo , Matt the mini walking dildo, soon proves there is nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing mini about him Mia Roberts, who happens to be Zander s little sister Bliss has some loose family ties to Matt You see, Matt s brother married Mia s sister you still with me so not only does she know his fame for the cut n run romance moves that Matt rocks, he also knows that she isn t the relationship type of gal either But things are bound to get complicated with the connections these two share run this deep But they weren t thinking about the consequences when they have a hot little encounter in a closet at a wedding two years ago and when Matt still can t get her out of his head, nothing is going to stand in his way, even if that thing is Mia.One of my favorite types of heroes are the sorts that like to sleep around but when they find the one, they go all in We like to call these the man whores of the romance community Matt Taylor certainly wears that crown with pride but that doesn t mean that he doesn t want out of life than just a quick lay and an easy goodbye in the morning I loved Matt It didn t take long for me to start to see this softer vulnerable side of him I felt horrible that so many didn t see him as mature or worthy It broke my heart even as BJ had me in fits of giggles I wanted to stand up and shout that he was than just the dick in his pants I loved how much he jumped into the whole deal with Mia He knew what he wanted and he went after it.Then that leaves Mia Poor, poor confused Mia It was obvious that she was harboring some issues when it came to commitment Repeating the mistakes her mother made, falling for a man that could wreck her, use her and leave her for someone else was her greatest fear Falling for Matt Taylor, the very definition of man whore wasn t the greatest idea she s ever had I didn t love Mia, but I didn t hate her I think I saw enough of her insecurities to make sense of her behavior but that didn t mean that she did not leave me frustrated But this was a rom com so although some moments of this book did hit some emotional moments, it still remained lighthearted I loved the chemistry between these two I loved getting to have extra time with the cast of Bliss, but most of all, I loved getting to watch Matt Taylor fall on his ass, head over heels in love with the one woman that could give him a run for his money when it came to serious relationships Of all the books I ve read from BJ and I ve read them all , this is my favorite I can t wait for the rest of this series and to get to know the other characters.

    4 Stars I still hate you She mutters under her breath You can hate me and still fuck me In fact, if you go off like that every time I make you come, you re welcome to hate fuck me any time you want I ve been on a rom kick lately so when the author offered me a chance to read Game Player, I jumped on it This was my first book by BJ Harvey and all I can say after finishing is, where has she been all my life Game Player is full of wickedly hilarious banter, sizzling hot romance, and a cast of characters that I completely fell in love with I had a goofy smile on my face for most of the book some parts I wanted to throttle the heroine , but that may have been because I wanted Matt for myself Nothing wrong with a little heroinecide I m totally making that a word, by the way But I digress Knowing you, you d probably try and turn up early to witness the walk of shame If you ve done it right, it should always be a stomp of satisfaction Have I taught you nothing Matt Taylor is a player in every sense of the word He s the hit it and quit it type and not one for settling down But one drunken hookup at a wedding 18 months ago changed his relationship with Mia irrevocably They may not have spoken of it since, but eventually the sparks between them prove too hot to ignore Don t you worry about me, legs There s a whole black book worth of willing volunteers Legs Well I can t call you Tits, can I You re a piece of work, Taylor It s okay to admit you want me, Mia Mia is a sassy, call them like she sees them type of chick She sees nothing wrong with giving in to the undeniable urges between her and Matt, but that s it Matt may want something , or so he says, but how can she trust a player like him Why did I ever think I could play the player at his own game I absolutely loved Matt His internal dialogue gave me many a giggle, and the man has a hell of a mouth on him when it comes to the dirty talk Jesus, are you trying to kill me No, Legs, I don t want to kill you I want to make you moan I want you to whimper, and I want you to scream my name when I m balls deep inside you My mouth is going to claim you, my hands are going to explore you, and my cock will make you mine even if you only ever give me one night Ovaries CUMbusted.But in all seriousness, I couldn t get enough of him You can see how much he struggles with his feelings for Mia when she doesn t trust him with that Mia was a source of frustration for me for much of the duration of the book I wanted to throttle her for the way she acts with Matt at times But on the other hand, it kept their antics lively and angsty, so in the grand scheme of things, it didn t take much away form my enjoyment.Admittedly, it took me a bit to really wrap my mind around all the characters I believe this is a spin off from BJ s Bliss series, and many of the characters from that series have a cameo here As this was my first book, it took my puny brain a bit to get a hang of everything, but once I did, I was right in the swing of things.All in all, Game Player was a sexy and hilarious read that I enjoyed thoroughly This is an author that will surely be my go to whenever I need a book to put a smile on my face while making my ovaries happy ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest reviewFind me on

    Game Player Game 1 by BJ Harvey4.5 stars You want this to be wrong but to me, it s always been right BJ Harvey never fails to make me laugh and smile when reading one of her books and Game Player was no different, with fantastic dialogue BJ Harvey really nailed her character s sense of humour and made these characters come to life This is one of the things I adore when reading, characters you can really relate to, characters you want to be friends with and most importantly by the end you actually believe you are.For those that have read the Bliss Series Matt is Noah s brother, Noah was affectionately known as The Walking Dildo and as Matt is younger his affectionate title is Mini Walking Dildo If the names are anything to go by you know you are going to have a giggle However, if you have not read The Bliss series don t panic, you don t need to have read them, but I would recommend them as they are highly entertaining.Game Player is Matt and Mia s story are you ready to be confused So we have Matt Matt is Mia s brother in law s brother and we have Mia who is Matt s sister in law s sister clear Basically, their elder siblings married each other and did I say they were protective Matt has a reputation, hence the title, he is a man of meaningless hook ups and the women know what they are getting before he even goes there He didn t want attachments but his reputation precedes him and deep down, the man underneath the bravado was nothing like the cocky fa ade he had put firmly in place Matt was a man wanting recognition and respect from his father, a man who wanted to find the one, a man who had actually grown up and yet no one else could see it Nobody saw the real Matt, he just wanted to be taken seriously Au contraire, little dicked one, married life means I never wake up alone and therefore never have to take my one eyed trouser snake in hand unless my wife is begging to watch me do it Mia is the female version of Matt, another one that cannot settle down, doesn t want to settle down Mia was sassy, she s got quick wit and can cut anyone down to size with a well timed barb and she was as stubborn as a mule I must admit, I found it hard in the beginning to really relate to her but as the story evolved and back stories are told I came to understand her It s just that I don t want to be in a relationship I m all about the date and not about the mate So we have two players and herein lies the biggest issue never trust a player With two people that were content on playing the field when it comes to finally getting serious there was always going to be trust issues, security issues am I being played issues Matt knew what he wanted and he knew he had found the one with Mia, but Mia needed a lot convincing The ball s in your court now, and it has to be you that makes the next play because I m all out of moves The chemistry between Matt and Mia will seriously melt your kindles and set your pages on fire One thing that BJ Harvey writes extremely well are intense, hot, steamy bedroom scenes and this book does not disappoint Their attraction to one another crackled off the pages but the reticence and hesitance from Mia wanted you to slap her a few times and beg her to see the genuineness behind Matt s actions and words.The I read the I fell in love with Matt and that is testament to BJ Harvey s writing because she really captured Matt s evolution from a horny player to a dedicated, serious adult Through work and his relationship with Mia his change was dramatic but that man had always been there, he just needed to show it you know you want me I know you want me I just need you to give me a chance I loved that we caught up with the whole Bliss crowd, while this is most definitely Matt and Mia s story they all had their part to play Another winner from BJ

    I liked the hero because he wanted the heroin and was determined from the beginning Our heroine was in doubt until the end and left me a little annoyed with her attitude Nothing much about the story.

    That book had the potential and it could have been a sweet and cute love story with a gorgeous swoon worthy hero and a sassy heroine but alas, it failed in many ways First of all, the heroine got and annoying all along the book Her stupid actions made me feel that she did not deserve HIM Secondly, I wanted to throw my kindle away when the most unoriginal plot twist was served AGAIN Come on, I am begging all writers to please find something other than an view spoiler unplanned pregnancy when the couples are on the pill hide spoiler
