~Rules of the Game~

Kathryn West has it all-she's a confident, bestselling author living it up in New York City. Too bad she doesn't actually exist, and is only timid Maddie Sawyer's pseudonym. Determined to attend her high school reunion with a man right out of one of her racy romance novels, she plots to find a sexy bad boy who's up to Kathryn's standards.
She finds Mr. Perfect shooting pool in a biker bar. He's a blue-collar hunk who just happens to look great in leather. But the mysterious Scott Brady has some rules of his own: he won't agree to her deal unless she poses as his girlfriend in front of his family and friends first.
As the reunion nears, Maddie tries to maintain her carefree fa├žade, knowing she'll soon face some old ghosts. She's torn between her growing attraction to Scott and the nagging feeling that he's hiding something important. Will she still want him when she finds out his secret? What about when he discovers hers?

About~76,000 words

The cover for this book in my opinion really doesn't do the story any justice at all. The story ROCKS! It has so many twists that I swear you'll feel as if you're on a roller coaster  taken by surprise.
This was beyond a fun read!

I loved how Maddie and Scott met. It's was as if she was shoe shopping :0)
The Story itself goes around the rules that Maddie has made up.....Scott of course changes them .
Soon they're dating... for REAL....
Then the REUNION
Talk about one twist.....(by here I already figured out what Scott was hiding...But man Maddie!!!!)
This is where all blanky blanky goes forth and you would think Scott would take tail and run, but nope.....
he stayed ......
I really liked him .
After the reunion when they return to life as it's Maddie that REALLY and I mean REALLY starts to rub me wrong.....
I just wish I could of like her through the whole book, but I couldn't. She just crashed and burned for me and never recovered.

The author did a great job telling a interesting story with twists and turns. Each of the characters were relate-able to real life craziness which makes this story all the more fun to read. I can think of various of my friends that would go through the trouble of finding a "date " for a reunion. Although, I doubt if their stories extend any further.
Wonderful summer read....totally recommend!!!
