The Love Game by Emma Hart

Title: The Love Game
Author: Emma Hart

Kindle Edition

Blurb from Goodreads:His challenge? Make her fall in love with him.
Her challenge? Play the player.
Until life changes the rules of the game.

Maddie Stevens hated Braden Carter on sight. Arrogant, egotistical, and the playboy of the University of California, Berkeley, he's everything her brother Pearce has taught her to despise. So why, when the girls challenge her to play the player, doesn't she say no? She doesn't know either.

Braden wanted fiery little Maddie the second he laid eyes on her - and he'd do anything to have her, hence why he's agreed to make her fall in love with him. After all, it's the only way he'll get what he wants. Sex.

But, as Braden discovers, there's more to the girl from Brooklyn than he ever imagined - and he can't help but care about the broken girl behind those pretty green eyes.

Maddie finds Braden isn't just a walking erection - he actually has feelings. He can be sweet, funny and his good looks don't exactly hurt. That means trouble - but when her brother Pearce turns up in Berkeley begging for her help, she realises Braden and Pearce aren't so alike anymore.

And maybe, just maybe, they're exactly what each other needs.

Review:  This was such a fun, cute, quirky read, I can't get over it. If you enjoyed "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" then this book is definitely for you.
“Maddie Stevens. Your mission, should you choose to accept it.” She grins and puts her hand out. “Is to play the player at his own game. Do you accept?”
I inhale deeply, every bit of my mind screaming at me to say no and run. Play the player. “Accepted.” 
    So Maddie accepts a mission to play the schools biggest player, it's just too bad for her he accepts the mission to get to make her fall in love with him and play her. So who's going to lose? And what are the stakes when you're playing with love?
    So let's face it we know how this book will end before we even get into it, but it doesn't make it any less enjoyable. The characters  were great and lovable. Maddie was so easy to fall in love with. She got a little annoying at times with the whole " No brain I shouldn't be feeling this way, I don't love him, Nope, Nu-ah, not at all."
    Braden. We all love a changed man-whore ( well at least in books  bot so much in real life) Braden was a typical guy in the beginning with the emotional depth  of  a dry rain puddle, but as time goes on he really changes and grows for the better.
    One thing this book did a really good job with was portraying the  characters opinions change as time goes on. You can definitely tell the difference between 1st chapter Maddie and Braden and Last chapter. But by far my favorite part of the book was the dialogue. It was hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!
"Did you, you know, blow his whistle?”
“Did you suck his lollipop?”
“Well, did he bite your burger?”
“What, on earth, is that?” Kay tries and fails to get the words out,
“It's, licking, um, y'know.” Megan shakes her head and laughs.
“Okay, so was there bean flicking?”
“Did he play with the bait while he went fishing?”
      Great book go read it.
   I give this novel
