Book Review: Game Point (Dreamspun Desires #45) – M.J. O’Shea

Date of Publication: November 1st 2017 by Dreamspinner Press
Theme & Genres: LGBTQI, Romance, Contemporary, Age-Gap
Format: Ebook, 194 pages
ISBN: 9781635337563
Characters: Quinn Valenzuela, Porter Davis

Blurb:
Game, set… match made in heaven.

Spoiled socialite Quinn Valenzuela has no interest in sports or his family’s huge sporting goods empire, Sparta Athletics. So when Quinn learns his grandfather has died and he’s in control of the corporation, no one is more surprised than Quinn himself.

Dedicated COO Porter Davis has little time and less patience for brats like Quinn who have never done a day’s work, but circumstances leave him with little choice. Quinn claims he’s ready to leave partying behind and grow up, but it’ll take more than words to earn Porter’s respect. As it turns out, they can work—and play—together after all. A friends with benefits arrangement makes sense for the two busy men, but are they too different for it to ever develop into more? Not if Quinn can convince Porter he has his head in the game

This whole Dreamspun Desires Series is a hit or missed thing and this one definitely hit the target! I loved both MCs. I liked Quinn onset of the story with bits of his backstory being explained on why he became a party boy. Porter at first was a bit annoying but I guess he made up for his awful attitude midway through. I still want to learn more about him though. The few things we learned about him are his fuck-up social climbing parents, him being a previous Tennis player and his sister Perry and nothing else.

It felt a bit rushed and I wished the ending was a bit longer but overall, the story is sweet with hot sexy scenes and likable characters so that’s a win for the author!

‘Will definitely recommend this one!

Kerry Pickering has a problem. As a publicist for Hollywood bad boy Jericho Knox, it’s Kerry’s job to keep Jericho in the news. So far, Jericho’s partying and public escapades have made it easy. But Jericho has a secret, and when that secret is revealed in the most spectacularly disastrous way, it’s up to Kerry to spin it.

The team decides the best course of action is to make the public fall in love—with Jericho’s secret committed relationship. The one that doesn’t exist. Yet.

The team wants someone they can trust. Someone in the inner circle. That someone is Kerry. But what will happen when Kerry realizes that for him, the romance is no longer pretend? Can Jericho love him back, or is he just playing a role?

It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve read something from M.J. O’Shea! She’s one of my favorite authors so to have read this beautiful story is such a treat because I feel like she’s in her element with this one 100%!!!! I’m so ready to dance like there’s no tomorrow because I fucking love it!!! My thirst has been quenched! M.J. is so back!!!

Okay, that’s me fantarding over M.J.  because I just totally adore this story!!! And this may just be the best one from the Dreamspun Desires Series! Whoot Hoot!  There’s nothing extraordinarily new about the story, it’s just that the writing is overflowing with loveliness!   I super-loved Kerry’s character. He’s a classic M.J. ‘s character – the all kinds of adorable kind of character. Jericho’s character however was not as likable until he stops being a jerk to Kerry. There was no major conflict here but it didn’t bother me one bit because it’s just all kinds of lovely – what with Kerry and Jericho falling for each other during their supposed ‘charade.’  I liked that they didn’t fall for each other hours upon their meeting.

 This is a book goodie all of you mm book lovers should get a hold of. Short, sweet, and just overall feelgood.
