Life isn't easy with when you live in a house with three guys, but former gamer girl Kira is trying to adjust. When she ran from an abusive relationship to hide with her old gaming teammates, she wasn't expecting life to get so complicated. Between jealousies erupting among the men and the complicated sexual tension between her and her ex crush, gorgeous pro gamer A1pha, Kira isn't sure she made the right decision in coming back.
But the choice might not be hers for much longer, because her abusive ex Nate just showed up at the mansion, and he's determined not to go home empty handed.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This has not influenced my review in any way.
Win Me is the second installment in the A!pha series, and picks up at the cliff-hanger of the first book. This review will contain some spoilers to book one, Play Me.
Win Me follows Kira who is fleeing from her violent ex-boyfriend and goes to live with three super hot gamer boys (her old gaming team). We start where Play Me left off, with Kira being approached by her ex-boyfriend out the front of Alex’s mansion.
Win Me’s best feature is that it is short, and steamy. That and a few well-placed pop culture references are about the extent of my praise.
It came as no surprise to me reading Win Me that Ashcroft’s writing style had not developed much, and that the book is carried by the sexual tension. In this sense it didn’t differ from Play Me. We discover more about Alex in Win Me which helped me to see him as not just a hunk of man meat who liked to go caveman and pick Kira up over his shoulder every thirty seconds.
Unfortunately the overpowering domination vibe continued on in Win Me with Kira being unable to look after herself, and literally scrambling around on the ground helplessly rather than doing something useful.
I would have liked Kira to develop a bit more, but Win Me falls firmly into my guilty pleasure shelf, so in the end it was entertaining.
