From the USA Today bestselling author of the Bliss series comes a new spin off series featuring your favorite Bliss series characters who are yet to meet their match. This time it is Zach and Danika’s turn.
I’m a gamer by nature and by profession. I’m all about strategy, performance, and coming out on top.
Five months ago I threw caution to the wind, and in the first miscalculated step of my twenty-one-year life, I made a move on my brother’s best friend.
The first mistake we made was keeping our relationship secret. The next was going off half-cocked when a train wreck of epic proportions hit us.
Now our secret is secret no more. As I struggle to deal with all of the swirling emotions, conflicted feelings, and the multitude of burned bridges that I need to mend, the one person who can help me through it all is the same man I need space from.
To fix it I’ll have to pull on my big-girl panties, focus on what I truly want in life, and put everything I have into winning the most important game I’ll ever play.
Life is a game, and it is what you make it.
Coming out unscathed is a whole other matter.

Well I will say it again…..BJ Harvey has done it again!! She can do no wrong when it comes to writing a book. As with every book I read of hers, I devoured this book!!!
Again it was so nice catching up with the “Bliss” group. I don’t think I will ever get tired of this cast of characters.
Game Maker is the second standalone novel in BJ Harvey’s spin off Game Series. In this book we again get a sibling of one of the Main characters from her Bliss Series, but we also get the Best Friend of that same character. So this is sort of a forbidden romance. I am absolutely LOVING this series and will be sad when it comes to an end. She continues give us the characters we love from before but also introduces us to new characters who are just as lovable. The story lines are fun and swoony and with out a lot of drama. I enjoy that she gives us enough drama to keep you turning the page, but truly these books would be just as great without any drama. This book will make you laugh, swoon, cry, yell and fall in love!!! This is definitely worth 5 stars to me!!
Game Maker is a fun, sexy and sweet forbidden romance between Zach (Zander’s Best Friend) and Danika (Zander’s youngest sister) As you can guess there is a significant age difference between Zach and Dani (9 years) but it really never played a factor between them. yes there were times that you could see Dani’s immaturity come out but it never slowed Zach down. This is also kind of a friends to lovers type story. Danika has been crushing on Zach since she was fourteen year old girl. Now 21 and grown, she wants to take things further with Zach. Zach never looked at Danika as anything other than his best friend’s kid sister….that is until she turns 21 and is now an adult. Forced to fight their attraction because of Zander…when things come to a head, they are explosive!!!! I loved watching these two grow together and overcome the obstacles that stand in their way.
This book was just as great as the first book in the series and one I will definitely recommend to everyone!!! Even though this book is a standalone novel and the Bliss series does not have to be read first, but as I have always recommended with interconnected standalone books, I think the Bliss series should be read before this series, so that the reader can truly connect with all the characters we meet in this book. If you are a fan of BJ Harvey’s, then you don’t want to miss out on this new series or the chance to reconnect with some old friends. If she is a new author to you, dive in and I hope you thoroughly enjoy her books like I have!!!
