Game of Love (The Remingtons Book #1) by Melissa Foster with Giveaway & Review

Game of Love
The Remington’s Book One
By: Melissa Foster

Ellie Parker is a master at building walls around her heart. In the twenty-five years she’s been alive, Dex Remington has been the only person who has always believed in her and been there for her. But four years earlier, she came to Dex seeking comfort and then disappeared like a thief in the night, leaving him a broken man.

Dex Remington is one of the top PC game developers in the United States. He’s handsome, smart, and numb. So damn numb that he’s not sure he’ll ever find a reason to feel again.

A chance encounter sparks intense desires in Ellie and Dex. Desires that make her want to run—and make him want to feel. A combination of lust and fear leads these young lovers down a dangerous path. Is it possible to cross a burned bridge, or are they destined to be apart forever?

My Review: 5 stars
Another awesome introduction to a new series from Melissa Foster! I love the depth that she brings to her characters, making them so realistic and relatable. This is the first book in The Remingtons series, and as usual, Melissa was able to weave a fantastic story using real life models. I loved that Dex was a gamer and was successful, but that ultimately it meant not that much in comparison to what he felt for Ellie. He has always loved her, since he was a teen. Ellie, is a bit damaged, a bit broken, but Dex for her has always been her safe place. She has known that she loved him for years, but when you've gone through what she has you learn not to rely on anyone. The fact that Ellie KNOWS that Dex is and always will be her safe place is a huge step for her. However knowing and being able to live that reality is sometimes a difficult thing to do. It takes a lot of patience for the other person, which luckily for Ellie - Dex has. I loved that both of these characters were a bit damaged, but were there for each other. There are twists and turns in the story, however Melissa always knows how to end a book that leaves me with a warm, happy feeling. I love that about her writing. I have been a fan for a while, and will continue to be. Reading anything by Melissa is always good for me.
