One mind-blowing night with a hot guy I picked up at the bar. That’s all it was supposed to be.
But with our explosive chemistry in bed and easy camaraderie out of it, Mason and I both agree: There’s no harm in having a little more fun.
After all, we both know what this is. Neither of us are looking for anything serious. I’m just keeping my promise to live life to the fullest.
But the more time I spend with Mason, the more I begin to realize something.
I haven’t been living.
I’ve been running.
Because I’ve known loss before. Agonizing loss. And I can’t risk opening my heart again.
Especially not for a man who thinks this is all just fun and games

Where to begin with this entertaining book!  Fun and Games is a standalone novel in this author’s Sin and Tonic series and it is sure to pull you in from the first page and keep you engaged until the very end.  It is a story full of heartache, joy, humor, and passion.  As with this author’s previous books, she weaves a beautiful story with endearing, well developed characters and an engaging storyline, all while putting you through all the feels you follow them on their winding journey.

Told from Bree’s POV, Mason and Bree experience a steamy one night stand which later evolves into friends with benefits.  Bree’s past is heartbreaking and I found myself tearing up at times for this strong heroine.  Having suffered a devastating loss, she decides to live life with no regrets and hasn’t planted down any roots. I love how she is a trivia geek and was amused by all of her temp jobs that allowed her to travel from place to place.  Mason is the bar manager at Sin and Tonic, but was a former band manager for his friends who is now the owner of the bar.  I adored this sexy, thoughtful man who guards his heart so fiercely that he can’t fathom that true love is real.  The way he seemed to understand and connect with Bree left me swooning throughout the book.

Bree and Mason’s first meeting is hilarious and the two of them together are dynamite!  I really enjoyed the various escapades that these two experienced and I loved seeing their relationship evolve.  With one knowing what it is to have loved and lost and another so jaded into believing that love doesn’t exist, can these two overcome their obstacles and find their path to love? 

I received an early complimentary version of this book.
