From USA Today bestselling author BJ Harvey comes the fourth and final book in the Game series and this time it’s the reformed playboy and the single mom.
“You have chlamydia.”
Three words no man wants to hear.
I’ve always been liberal with my appreciation of the female form, a firm believer in the ‘try before you buy’ principle, but living life to the fullest obviously didn’t end well for me considering the unexpected—and very unwelcome—consequence of my free and easy past.
After living through the horrendous experience that was informing my recent sexual partners of my acquired ‘condition,’ I made a vow to myself – and a bet with my best friend—that the next woman I sleep with will be the ‘one.’
What I will learn is that even when something happens and the games come to an end, there’s always the chance of something—or someone—crashing in and changing everything.
So this is my story. It may start with a venereal disease, but I promise you, I’m determined to get my happy ending.

Who would ever think an STD could change your life for the better?? Well read Game Ender and see how it transformed a playboy bachelor into a loving man and father.
Game Ender was a sweet, sexy and romantic read about unconditional love and that blood relations isn’t what makes a family.
This was another GREAT addition to this fabulous series!!! BJ Harvey can do no wrong when it comes to these characters. Every book she gives us I just devour!! I am truly sad to see this series end and knowing I have to say good bye to these characters. I truly have felt a part of their lives over the years.
Game Ender is the fourth and final book in her spin-off Game Series. This book/series can be read as a standalone, you don’t need to read the Bliss Series first or the previous books in the Game series to fully enjoy this book. I would highly recommend reading all the Bliss Series and the Game series before reading this book, but that is because you will then get the full experience of these AMAZING characters.
In Game Ender the couple that we follow are Thomas and Amy. Thomas is the best friend of Cade and a well known playboy. Amy is the best friend of Abi and Mia (both you read about in the other books of this series). I love how Ms. Harvey has weaved such a web with this cast of characters. That is why I highly recommend reading these books in order because their lives are so entangled with each other. I will say though that even if you only read this book…you won’t be lost or confused at all. Ms. Harvey fills in the blanks when need be. Amy has become pregnant and is forced to raise the baby by herself….that is until Thomas steps into the picture and helps her out. Thomas and Amy form a friendship while Thomas also forms a bond with Brody. I loved watching these characters open up to each other and show everyone that blood isn’t always what makes a family.
One thing I have loved about this spin off series, is that we get to reconnect with the characters from the Bliss Series and the previous Game Series books. We get to see what their lives have become since their books have ended.
Each of these books are fun, flirty, enjoyable and extremely sexy 😉 I think Thomas was the swooniest of all the Heroes in the Game Series. Amy talks about the whooshes she gets throughout the story and I know I felt them right along with her. Thomas has stolen a top spot on my book boyfriend list (Right next to Daniel from Temporary Bliss)
As with all of these books in this series, Game Ender, didn’t have a lot of drama, but what drama she did add, was handled well and quick. These books just really make me happy to read and I end with a HUGE smile on my face.
I think what I love the most about this series and BJ Harvey’s books is that she gives us amazing heroines. Her girls are strong, independent and not ashamed of the sexual prowess. No she doesn’t give us sluts or anything but women who like men and aren’t embarrassed to admit it. I also love that she gives us couples who act like adults. Yes they have mountains to climb and obstacles to overcome, but they do it the way you would expect an adult to handle it. Her couples are functional…if that makes sense.
I would again 100% recommend any book of BJ Harvey to any reader. If you are a fan of the fun, sexy and just all around enjoyable read then this is the series to read. If you are a fan of BJ Harvey’s, then you don’t want to miss out on this 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!!!
“I’ve narrowed it down to five reasons why a woman would throw a drink at a man.”
He leans back and crosses his perfectly toned arms over his chest.
“Impart your wisdom, oh wise bartender.” He takes another drink of his beer and—yet again—watching me like a hawk. I wish he’d stop watching me.
My confidence wavers under his intense stare but when I catch a knowing glint in his eye, it riles me up. There’s nothing worse than a guy who hides his unease behind a cocky façade, especially when I know there’s something genuine hiding there.
It’s one of the worst qualities a guy can have. It’s disingenuous and fake and if there’s two things I hate—in anyone—it’s that.
I square my shoulders and stand up straight, deciding to let him have it, putting my hands out in front of me to count on my fingers.
“One, you cheated on her.” He shakes his head, an amused smile playing on his lips.
“Two, connected to the first, you hooked up with her sister, best friend or mother . . .” He snorts at that one, chuckling under his breath as he shakes his head again.
“Right, then, the last three,” I continue. “Three through five are offending her family/job/friends or outfit, asking her to pay for your date and lastly, giving her an STD.”
His eyes grow wide and he sits bolt upright.
BJ Harvey is the USA Today Bestselling Author of the Bliss Series. She also regards herself as a smut peddler, suspense conjurer and a funny romance thinker upper.
An avid music fan, you will always find her singing some hit song badly but loving every minute of it.
