Publisher's Summary

The Remingtons are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series.

Ellie Parker is a master at building walls around her heart. In the 25 years she's been alive, Dex Remington has been the only person who has always believed in her and been there for her. But four years earlier, she came to Dex seeking comfort and then disappeared like a thief in the night, leaving him a broken man.

Dex Remington is one of the top PC game developers in the United States. He's handsome, smart, and numb. So damn numb that he's not sure he'll ever find a reason to feel again.

A chance encounter sparks intense desires in Ellie and Dex. Desires that make her want to run - and make him want to feel. A combination of lust and fear leads these young lovers down a dangerous path. Is it possible to cross a burned bridge, or are they destined to be apart forever?

Game of Love!

This was my first Melissa Foster's book. I love it! This is a good second chance love story. I love the two main characters Dex and Elie. Dex is amazing! I was hooked by this book from the first page until the end. I already like The Remington family and can't wait to listen to the next book in this Series. This was my first listen to B.J. Harrison and the narration was very great. I'm looking forward for more stories by this author. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Game On!

What a wonderful story! I loved the long term relationship between Dex and Ellie. This story isn't instant love, but slow, steady and unconditional. I loved how realistic some of the descriptions were. Contentment with just being by the person is such a warm feeling. Ellie had walls around her heart that Dex just got thru by being Dex. Another aspect that I found especially wonderful about this book was Ellie looking at schools to see the students and not statistics. This book has so many facets like a gem. The Remington family sounds so good with their big hearts, humor, and individual characters. The symbolism of the open window was cool too. I can't wait to hear the next story (Sage) in this series. This is a standalone listen. The narrator did a great job with all of his various characters and emotions.

Love rekindled

Audio books are so great for people with an very busy life and who love to read. I loved how the characters reconnected and how the story comes to life while you listen.

Little darker then most of Melissa s books

Dex Remington has been Ellie Parker's safe place since they were kids. To this day he still leaves his window open for her. Ellie grew up in foster care and lots of insecurities. With Dex's help she is able to trust and be loved the way she deserves to be. Melissa Foster gets better and better with each book. BJ Harrison did another amazing job with the narration.

Loved this book!

I listened to Game of Love again after reading it back in 2014. The narration brought to life Ellie and Dex’s story in a way that I didn’t remember from reading it. Ellie has had a rough upbringing and Dex was there for her when they were younger before she had to move away. When she shows back up at his doorstep then leaves again, he is devastated. Finding her in NYC is both a blessing and a curse. He is so happy to see her but doesn’t know if he can trust her and Ellie still doesn’t know how to open up and let him all the way in either. Overcoming their fears is the only way they can find love. This is a great story – even the second time around – I love all of Melissa’s characters but have a special soft spot for Ellie and Dex.

All The Feels

This book was packed with all the feels. I found the narrators did an amazing job bringing these characters to life. My heart was pulled in so many ways for the two characters and what an emotional ride this was. This one is definitely going into my re-read/re-listen pile.

Love Game of Love

This was a great story. I loved the characters. They reminded me of friends of my past. BJ Harrison narrates again and does a great job with New York accents. He made the story enjoyable to listen to.

Dex & Ellie- Second Time around

Dex was Ellie's first love. No other woman came close to his feelings for Ellie. Ellie was in the foster care system. One day she was there, the next she was whisked off to another family. Move forward many years, Ellie is a school teacher who finds out her boyfriend is married so yet more heart ache for her. Dex is a rich game developer who has an ache in his heart for Ellie but built high walls around his heart. They run into each other in NY but this time Dex vows to keep Ellie by his side and not let her disappear into the night again.

I did enjoy the narrator of the book. I found my attention was held through out the entire book.Great job by Melissa Foster again (my favorite author) and B.J. Harrison for great narration!

Love Dex and Ellie

This is my very first Melissa Foster book so I have not read any others in main series, but now I really want to! I really liked this story, the struggle Dex and Ellie went through, being together, apart, together, and how it showed the work they needed in order to be together! I liked how human they really seemed and relatable in their struggles. I love Mitch and Regina and how they also helped to bring more of the fun banter into the story, I'm hoping for an HEA for them too! I'm looking forward to reading/hearing more from Melissa Foster, I would love to find out more from other characters in the series!

This is my first BJ Harrison audiobook. He has a pleasant voice and I would listen to others from him again. However, I did feel like the voice I pictured for Dex was a little different than the one he used. Though, it did not detract from the story at all!

A sweet story to brighten your day :)

What did you like most about Game of Love?

Dax and Ellie story is one that starts as teenage love and develops over time. These are my favourite stories.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Dex seeing Ellie for the first time after 4 years. He struggled to hear the conversation around him as the memories come back.

Any additional comments?

I loved this story.
Dex and Ellie have a sweet story that starts in childhood and despite a separation, Dex has not forgotten her or removed her from his heart. Ellie has had to build some rather solid walls around her heart and after a night of disaster, finds herself at Dex's door looking for help. A visit to her past enables Ellie to embrace the past and the walls start to crumble allowing her to see that Dex is the man for her.

When you're not looking for love

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Its quite an emotional journey for both the main characters and you get that with the narration.

What other book might you compare Game of Love to, and why?

I think all Melissa's books have a different take on love story, but if I had to pick one book it would be Amy and Tony from the Seaside stories.

What does B.J. Harrison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

When you listen to an audio book there is at lot more emotion in the story. You get drawn into it and that is down to having a good narrator.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

When you're childhood crush is your long lost love.
