Winning the Game
by Leesa Bow
There’s one catch: appear on a reality show to reinvent himself.
Football is Rhett’s lifeblood, but his family and the orchard farm in the country where he grew up means more, especially as his family relies on his wage to keep the business afloat. So Rhett puts his opinion of reality shows aside to concentrate on doing whatever it takes to be re-signed.
Career-focused TV mentor, Tori Winchester doesn’t have time for men, or a social life, which suits her fine. When Rhett Williams arrives on set with his blond beach hair and his mesmerizing blue eyes, her resolve begins to crumble. He’s not the spoiled bad boy casting had told her to expect.
Getting involved with someone like Rhett could not only damage her long-term career prospects, they could both lose everything.
In a game of cat and mouse, Rhett is playing the one game he doesn’t want to win…
I haven’t had a boyfriend in years either. So long that all my orifices have been reinstated to virginal status.
Some mistakes can be prevented… Others are meant to happen.
Winning the Game had an interesting premise, amusing and entertaining storylines, and a few interesting and endearing characters, although the vast majority of the cast were dishearteningly shallow, manipulative, and self-serving. I grew increasingly annoyed and disappointed with the main character of Tori as her seesawing, waffling, and deceit became increasingly tiresome and tedious. Rhett was a highly likable and cleverly amusing bad boy who had been forced into participating in a “scripted drama” reality program under duress to save his sports career. I felt considerable empathy for him as he had been blackmailed into cooperating with ambitious network vipers and had been exploited by everyone by the end of the story. Among the angst and backstabbing and between the Tori’s flip-flopping, a covert yet sweet and steamy romance was blooming. Of course, those were my favorite chapters.
