Team Ryan
Ryan Rose and her fellow Spartans are finalists in a high-profile entrepreneurial competition. They’re competing for life-changing money and for their futures. They have a solid plan to win. All they need to do is trounce the competition: rich frat boys from an archrival university. Easy, right?

Team Jett
Jett Trebuchet’s first mistake was not realizing that Ryan and her friends were the competition. His second was expressing his unabashed confidence in his team’s ability to win. After all, everyone knows the only thing MSU does better than U of M is produce beautiful, easy women…oh, and he almost forgot to say “dumb.” And boy, does his team pay for that one.

Game On
As each side tries to game the other, something else seems to be getting in the way—attraction. Now Ryan and Jett must keep their teams from getting distracted by the opposite sex…and each other. All is not fair in love and war when it comes to winning this game.


Review: I’m new to Shae Ross books, and when I read the blurb to this book, I fell in love. College romance and competition? Yes please! I was definitely not disappointed and am now a big fan of the talented Ms. Ross. From start to finish, this book kept me hooked with it’s awesome plot line, well chiseled characters and college hotness galore.

Ryan. Bless her, she’s a great character, perfect for her role! She’s competition, beautiful, and, of course, she’s super smart. I loved her! Watching her really pulled me into the story and I became her while reading the story. When an author transform me into the characters, that’s talent! The sparks that fly when she’s near Jett…..well, that’s highly addictive, too.

Jett. I loved him, and I disliked him. He was hot and funny, and well, he just needed to get it together from time to time. He truly made me smile though. The competive nature of him was evident and I loved watching him go head to head with sweet Ryan!

I definitely loved this book and give it high flying praises. Ms. Ross is going on my list of recommended authors to read, and I am excited to read the next book in this series! Filled with laughs, uh-oh moments and super fun characters, this book is sure to keep you hooked until the end! Well done, Ms. Ross. Well done.
