Synopsis

Playing His Game

Learning the moves from the best…

Aimee, a teacher, never wanted to be in the limelight, but when her professional videogame playing twin sister asked her to fill in for her at the regional championships, how could she say no? Especially, when the best player of The Celestial Prophesy is her teacher… in more ways than one. All she knows is that she is dying to lick his Star Wars Rebel Alliance tattoo and see if he is the Superman that his other body art implies.

He’s going to school the teacher…

Daemon Ivanov has lusted after Aimee for years. One taste of her and he knows that she will be his. A few nights will not be enough. Daemon plays to win.

Caution: This story is full of lust. So much lust that you might find that you need a fan due to the rising temperature in the room. It’s the first in a series with an HEA, but is a standalone story.

My Review:

This is indeed one of those HOT books, with hot scenes and burning desires. The fire between Daemon and Aimee started long time ago, but since he did not pay much attention to her she was left with her desire and imagination. When Aimee’s twin sister is forced to retreat from a gaming competition because of an arm injury, she is asked to take her place so that her team is not disqualified. So here comes Daemon, who’s supposed to teach her how to play “The Celestial Prophecy”. But being left alone in her apartment, they start playing a different kind of game J

For a short length story, the book is very well compressed, most of the action happening between our main characters. I can say that the way they begin their relationship is a little frail. Somehow, when Aimee finds herself alone with him is overpowered by her feelings and becomes this bold woman, ready to seduce the man of her dreams. Well, he also gives her the needed encouragements J These moments with the two of them are quite nicely built, the reader can feel the emotions, the passion and the intensity of the moment.

Daemon has tried to avoid Aimee as much as he could. Not sure exactly why, he mot definitely is not a shy guy, on the contrary. Maybe out of respect for her sister, who is his best friend. He will do all in his power to convince Aimee that what he feels for her is not a momentary thing and that he wants long term.

Even if Aimee has had these hidden feelings for him, she has never had the courage to show them. She always believed Daemon will never look her way. The moment he shows her that he is attracted to her as well, she starts exploring, or better yet, living her fantasies. Lucky woman!

The gaming competition comes second to their relationship. At some point I had the feeling it didn’t even matter anymore, even if both kept training. Well, I can understand why you’d put a space shooting game second to … other activities.

All in all, the story was nice, I enjoyed reading how both characters came together and evolved as a couple. I appreciated the clean romance as well – for a short book, an ex would have been an unnecessary complication. Hope you’ll like it too!

Excerpt

Daemon

 

“Daemon!” an insistent voice called over the speakers in his room. He didn’t pay it any mind. He had the sexiest woman in the universe under him not wearing panties. Nothing was more important than that.

“DAEMON!” the voice insistently called.

Daemon looked up to the TV screen to see the press corps sitting with their mouths gaping staring back at he and Aimee. Aimee let out a small scream and scooted out of the camera range, until she accidently fell off the bed with an unladylike thump.

He ran his hand through his hair. How could I have forgotten?! He had scheduled a press conference with the South Korean gaming press elite. As usual, he had left the permissions on his gaming system to bring up the video conferencing screen at the appointed time. When he was playing, he never had time to pause to answer, auto-answering had always made sense… until now.

The press seemed to come alive at the same moment. Loud voices rose through the speakers and the journalists tried to ask their questions all at once. Daemon muted the TV and turned to Aimee, who was kneeling on the floor, peeking over the bed at the TV with wide eyes.

Daemon felt his heart race. He couldn’t lose her now. Not when they were so close. Not over this. He held his hand out to her. “Aimee, I’m so sorry! I had forgotten that I had scheduled this interview.”

Aimee’s muffled voice was hard to make out as she spoke into the down comforter. “Um… it’s okay. They can still see me, Daemon.”

Daemon whipped his head back around to see their projected image in one of the screens. Sure enough, he saw himself laying across the bed with Aimee’s eyes peeking out over the top of the mattress. “Fuck. Just… just… dip down. I’ll take care of this.” He waited until he saw Aimee’s head disappear behind the bed.

He unmuted the sound and immediately the shouting voices of the journalists jockeying for attention almost deafened him. “Please! PLEASE! Calm down! I am happy to answer your gaming questions,” he began, “But, my answer for anything relating to my personal life is ‘NO COMMENT.’”
