REVIEW: A Very Filthy Game by Lauren Blakely


* * * * * * * * * *


It’s a fine line between lust and obsession…

Lately, I’ve been full of questions. Then one hot summer night I find all the answers when I kiss another guy for the first time. But all too soon, he disappears, leaving me wondering who my mystery man was.

Then I can’t stop thinking about him. Even on the ball field, I’m daydreaming about his hungry hands, and the filthy things he whispered in his posh British accent.

Somehow I still win one of the biggest games of my career, and afterward the man surprises me with an invitation: “Meet me in a private suite.”

When I RSVP, he makes me an offer – one chance to try all the things I’ve never experienced. Then we’ll walk away.

But once will never be enough. Soon I’m locked into an intense lessons-in-seduction game with the secretive billionaire who keeps love at a distance, all while he pushes the boundaries of my brand new desires.

And soon I learn that all my desires come with a terrible cost, as he breaks down the walls around my heart.

A Very Filthy Game is a lessons-in-seduction, first times, forbidden MM romance between a billionaire and an athlete…

Lauren Blakely set the pages on fire in A Very Filthy Game. An athlete just coming into his sexuality and a billionaire confident in his, Gunnar and Rafe are engulfed in an inferno of attraction from the moment their eyes meet for the first time. Gunnar is looking to explore this newly discovered side of himself, and Rafe is the man he wants to show him the way. Neither is looking for a relationship when things start between them, but they’re connecting on more than just a sexual level. When you add in some professional entanglements, things get complicated.

I listened to the audiobook version of A Very Filthy Game, and Shane East and Joe Arden were perfection. Shane East brought the British billionaire, Rafe, to life with his smooth-as-silk voice, and Joe Arden’s performance as Gunnar was a consuming blend of vulnerable and cocky. As heart-racing as it was heart-tugging, this was a complex, hard-fought love story full of first-times, fiery chemistry and swoony heroes. An absolutely addictive read, I burned through two pairs of Air Pods listening to this book! Five smooches from me for A Very Filthy Game by Lauren Blakely!
