One ContractOne Contract by L.P. Lovell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Title: One Contract
Author: LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole


The first noel I've read by this author duo was War Poppy - a contemporary romance that had taken an often overlooked subject and brought it to the forefront, making my eyes tear up more time than i'd care to admit. One Contract was completely different from that story and no less captivating. These two write a seamless story - there's no way i can guess who wrote which part and i absolutely loved that aspect. Ella is at the end of her rope after her boyfriend leaves her, about to get evicted from her apartment. So when Tobias calls her in for an interview, the last thing she ever expected was to be offered a minimum of a million dollars if she can follow the simple rules, double that amount if she can win the game. Instead of just one man, the intense Tobias, Ella must also contend with Preston, no less dominant than his best friend Tobias.


Oh my god! I want that second part to find out what happens! It wasn't exactly a cliffhanger, although it feels like it, but it absolutely leaves you wanting more. Neither Tobias or Preston are ready to admit defeat and take their rules very seriously, never letting any slip go by unnoticed; however, Ella isn't ready to let these two win without a fight. I absolutely loved this trio and i can't wait to find out how their week will end and find out who will be the victor in the games: Ella, Preston, Tobias or all three of them.

Two Guys Two Guys by L.P. Lovell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Title: Two Guys
Author: LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole


Once in a while I'll get caught up in a series and will absolutely have to have to follow because it'll catch my attention so very thoroughly. My impatience in having to wait until each new installment is released is so very accrue that i'm not even sure how i'm still as calm as i am. I loved the first installment, One Contract, and i was even more thrilled when i got my greedy little hands on Two Guys. Where One Contract was about Ella discovering the men's sexual appetites and getting to know just how much they take the week seriously, Two Guys was darker. It showed us just how far Preston and Tobias will push Ella physically, mentally and emotionally to find out if she'll crack.


I was surprised more than once by the events of this short story and never more so from that surprise ending. Nothing is screaming at me more than for Ella to win these games because boy, i only want a woman to be their equal in all aspects - no matter how twisted it may be. Bravo on these authors for creating one series worth reading more than once.

Title: Three Players
Author: LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole

What the...?!? It can't just end like that!!! Lp Lovell and Stevie J. Cole just threw a wrench in the entire operation and now, having to wait an extra two weeks to find out what's to happen just seems completely unfair and cruel!!!

Compared to the other novels in the series, Three Players felt as though it was a bridge between Two Guys and the next instalment - I went in waiting answers after the last book and came out with more questions and utterly flabbergasted. Taking me less than an hour to read, I simply gobbled up the story and after the events, I'm wondering, truly, if Ella will make it out unscathed and if she'll be able to go toe to toe to Preston and Tobias... my attention is completely captivated and I can't wait for the next book, which can't be released fast enough in my opinion!

Four Strikes Four Strikes by Stevie J. Cole
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Title: Four Strikes
Author: LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole


Bloody Hell!!!! One more book from The Game series and i simply can't believe that these two authors have done it again! Gah! It's a good thing that i have some self control, otherwise i would probably throw my kindle against the wall knowing that i'll have to wait another two weeks for the next instalment. This time we finally get to know more about Number 3. The elusive man that seems to hold the reigns over Preston and Tobias. Four Strikes was different from all the other novels, there seemed to be more accent on Ella's submission rather than her ability to follow whatever it is that Tobias and Preston command from her. Can she really do it all? Even submit fully to Number 3 even though her fear stops her from reacting as she does with the other men of her life.

So what's next for this trio? I'm really not sure, especially after those numerous twists that LP Lovell and Stevie J Cole keep throwing at us. Their future is so up in the air that trust me, i will be absolutely watching for the next part to find out exactly what's going to happen to Number 3, Ella, Tobias and Preston... i swear my patience is being tested like there's no tomorrow.

Five Rules Five Rules by L.P. Lovell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Title: Five Rules
Author: LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole

At this point i'm not sure if LP Lovell and Stevie J Cole are sadists. I mean, who in their right minds writes short novels for a series that has me completely hooked to the point where i simply want to rage out in frustration! One thing is for sure, the Game series is genius - no one would ask the questions that Preston and Tobias ask of Ella and make it sound completely sane. Five Rules is the book that makes you think; makes you see these two men in a different way that you hadn't really thought about before. I know i didn't expect this. Didn't expect the emotions, the constant questioning of yourself, but mostly, wondering just what exactly you should do with this latest instalment of the series. In true form of who they are, LP Lovell and Stevie J Cole made this book hot and sexy, but it had something else that i don't know what to make of it: drama. Drama of the kind that you can't help but make it come at the forefront and make everything else pale in comparison.
But if you've followed the series so far, and you really should to get the best idea and picture of what happened, you will literally squeal in joy as you realize that Three has a name!! Oh! My! Gawd!!! Hell yes!!

Title: Six Zeros
Author: LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole

  Bloody Hell! What in the world is going on in this series? Just when you think you have your mind wrapped around one thing, getting over that shock to my system, LP Lovell and Stevie J. Cole hit you with another curve ball so intense that all i could do was pick up my jaw off from the floor. At this point, i can't even start to guess at what'll happen next and neither am i sure at what i want to happen in the end. It's the kind of series where at first i wanted this trio to end up together at the end, but now, i'm not so sure if that's what i want. With everything that Ella has gone through so far, dare i say that i believe she's simply surpassed Tobias, Preston and even Number Three? I don't know what's going to happen next, but knowing these authors, i'm only going to expect everything and nothing!

  Title: Seven Days  
Author: LP Lovell & Stevie J. Cole

Holy Mother! A few weeks ago, LP Lovell and Stevie J. Cole took four people and made them go through the ringer and questions what it means to love someone else no matter what and questions what is right or wrong. Then they made three of the four feel such an attraction for one another that they simply can't keep their hands off of one another. Of course, there were rules. Rules that Ella strove not to break and fought hard to obey. At first i wanted Ella, Tobias and Preston to end up together, then i wasn't so sure as Ella went through the paces and even made me questions what was real. But one thing was sure - i wanted and needed answers. Who is Three? What happens after the seventh day? Why Ella? Why? It might have been short, but Seven Days answers those questions and leaves you wanting more because quite honestly - it can't just end like that! That is simply too cruel! But in the end, it's one of those series that has to be read.

"It's a simple question, really,” Preston says. “What would you do for a million dollars?" 
Tobias smirks. "Or better yet, what would you not do?" 
Preston glances at Tobias, then back at me. "Would you kill someone?" 
Tobias laughs, spreading his arms wide. "Would you submit yourself then? Mind." He leans forward, locking eyes with me. "Body. Soul." 
I swallow. My heart hammers against my ribs. And I glance at the elevator, staring at the panel without buttons. “Submit…” I whisper, mentally acknowledging that I am trapped.
"Complete subservience." Preston says. 
"Like a slave?" My skin crawls when I utter that word. 
Tobias’s brow raises as he glances at Preston. "Slave rather implies doing something distasteful, doesn't it?" 
A slow smile pulls at Preston's lips before he looks at me. "It does. Slavery is to be debased and degraded. Submission is to be protected." His eyes skate slowly over my body. "Coveted. Revered. Cherished." 
These two men look like wolves, waiting, preying...and although my stomach is unsettled, the allure swarming around them is nearly undeniable. They are like the forbidden fruit. One bite may kill you, but how will you ever know until you taste it? 
"Trust me, sweetheart, you'll like it...for the most part." Preston winks. 
"I'm offering you one million dollars in exchange for one week of your time," Tobias says. 
"No amount of money is worth my dignity." I go to stand, although I don’t know where I’ll go, but Tobias grabs my wrist, subtly shaking his head. 
"Dignity?" he says, smirking. "And where exactly will your dignity be when you're living on the street?" My heart pounds unevenly in my chest. "We offer you a salvation not many are afforded. One million dollars for a mere seven days of your life." 
His hand is still wrapped tightly around my wrist. I can't breathe. I can't move. His eyes have me pinned in place. Slowly, I sit back down.
"Sweet Ella," Preston murmurs, standing up and walking behind me. He places his hand on my shoulder, the heat of his palm searing through me, "We know you have no money. No prospects. You're about to lose your apartment..."  
My heart sits in my throat in a pounding lump. I'm frozen with fear, and dare I say, curiosity.  
"You have no family, no one to fall back on," Tobias adds.  
"So tragic," Preston says, "what happened to your parents."  
I shake my head, unable to form words. How do they know this? How do they know these details about my life when I know nothing about them? "I..." I grip the arms of the chair so hard, I fear my knuckles may split.  
"No boyfriend. No job," Tobias says, inspecting the cuff of his jacket as though the entire notion of my pitiful existence bores him. "You've got nothing." His eyes flick to mine, imprisoning me in their green depths. "But you are very beautiful."
