Book Description:

How do you know when fake turns real?

Abi Cook lives her life by her own rules. She works hard, plays hard, and knows who she is and where she wants to be. 

Following a repeat one-night stand with the dashing Dr. Cade Carsen, Cade asks Abi for a favor: be the fake girlfriend on his arm for the duration of his father's mayoral campaign.

Never one to turn down a challenge, she doesn't hesitate. I mean, who would when all that's involved is a little fake girlfriending with a side of hot sex, and with Doctor Hottie no less? 

But like any Game, there are always twists and turns, unexpected players, villains, heroes and ultimately, winners and losers. 

Game Saver is the story of what happens when two happily single people try for something less, but end up with something so much more.

Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

“…don't rule out something more just because it started off as something less.”

BJ Harvey never fails to deliver with her hot men and sassy women, women that have embraced their femininity and inner sexual goddess and know how to use it. These characters, as the past two books and the Bliss series before that all culminate in a read that will have you laughing one minute, swooning the next and definitely fanning yourself too. Holy chemistry, this woman knows how to deliver between the pages and between the sheets.

Cade and Abi met ten months ago. Ten months ago they both had the best one night stand of their lives, one that while they knew what it was at the time had never left their memory. One night that was literally unforgettable. Now their paths cross once again and memories are suddenly becoming little sparks that definitely warrant reigniting.

“That was the only time we hooked up . . . until last night. Last night, everything changed. Whether that’s a good thing or not is yet to be seen. All I know is I’ve reviewed the forecast, and I’m predicting orgasms.”

Cade Carsen was a doctor and between long shifts and rest and relaxation he has not had the time for a relationship. He has made do with nights out with the lads often ending in a no names one-night encounter. No strings, no ties, no issues. Coming from wealth and a father in politics Cade Carsen III has to keep up appearances and a society wife was high on his parents list and at the bottom of his.

“She's the breath of fresh air I never saw coming.”

Abi was a hotel manager but supplements her income with a night of stripping. An income that is now not needed but once was her answer to settling the huge mountain of debt that her ex had left her with. Abi is not man friendly, after being burned once they only have one use and one use only, one night of hot sex and then see you later.

On paper, these two were perfect for each other, both not wanting a relationship, both the king and queen of no strings sex, but when their paths cross once again and they have a repeat performance it seems that these two have more in common than they thought. An agreement was made, no strings sex, fake girlfriend, whenever and wherever…of course no feelings would ever get involved…would they?

“I like this being real. A lot of my life hasn't been, so I like that I have a slice of real with you.”
“I think I'm falling for our real,”
“That's good, because I'm already gone.”

For the past few books one thing that I keep harping on about is the dialogue, BJ Harvey nails her dialogue, every single time. The wit and banter between these couples and their friends is hilarious. No topic is off limits, no subject unfiltered, just say what you feel and watch the fall out. These quite honest and frank discussions thought scream REAL and you can imagine this band of friends comparing notes, sizes and anything else that pops into their minds. I laughed a lot, I cried tears of laughter but underneath all this was a fantastic romance as ever, cementing the story perfectly.

“To taking the brown highway,”

I have adored this series from start to finish and cannot wait for the next one. These characters have become firm friends, after living in their lives for so long they are one of the team and I cannot wait to see what shenanigans BJ Harvey has in store for us next.

“He’s perfect. I’m just doing what I can to be perfect for him back.”


“Are you at work already?” I ask, having a brilliant idea of swinging by her place for a quickie. 
“Yeah, I’m sitting in my office.” 
There goes that plan then. 
“Is the door closed?” I ask, a rather nice image of Abi taking care of herself in her chair and describing it to me in vivid detail flashing through my mind. 
“Cade . . .” she warns, but her tone is not cutting. There’s a vein of amusement and a raspy undertone running through it. 
I chuckle. “Okay, okay. I’ll behave.” 
“Good, because after last night’s efforts, I can still feel where you’ve been and that’s had me at level five all day. You instigating phone sex in my office when I can’t do anything about it for eight hours is just cruel.” 
My mouth goes dry, and my groin tightens. “You can still feel me?” I ask gruffly, thinking phone sex is another fucking fantastic idea as I scan for the next exit. 
“Cade, my vagina has had more of a workout in the past week than it’s had in the ten months between visits.” 
That grabs my attention. “Ten months?” 
“Shit,” she mutters. “Forget I said that.” 
“There’s no way I’m letting you out of this one. Are you saying you didn’t sleep with anyone else after me?” Why the hell do I like that so. fucking. much? 
“I was busy! Doesn’t mean I didn’t give my toy chest a good workout.” 
“Yes. The toy chest. Guess what just got scratched onto our to-do list?” 
“You mean the to-do-me-with list?” she says with a giggle. 
“That too.”
