    One thought on “The Object of the Game”

    1. This author has a strange writing style. Hard to explain, sort of poetical and not necessarily in a good way. The hero was pretty darn beta, an absent minded professor who is always backing his car into things etc. She was his ward, but is now 22 and on unemployment. Lots of stuff happens that you're not interested in. And sometimes you're not sure what exactly is going on. The writing sometimes is just vaguely unclear. And then there was a scene from page 42 to page 62 of the hero and the villa [...]

    2. RE Object of the Game - This one is definitely different. VJ tries to blame it all on the H and h's Russian blood but this was a funny book. It has some of everything-- an Alpha H who has very beta habits (he is a Cambridge Don and lectures on the Classics in Literature and he is a very keen Cricket player who frequently backs his car into immovable objects.) A tempestuous Goddess-looking h who is trying to find her niche in life, (and breaking hearts inadvertently right and left while she sorts [...]

    3. The style of writing is different in this book. It was written in a conversational tone part of it worked great but part of it dragged like the scene and chapters dedicated to playing Cricket. I am a sport enthusiast but even I was boredThe relationship between the various characters was complicated. It isn't your typical ward/guardian story. The promise Alexis gave to Nico, Natasha's dad made him feel like a creep when he started realizing the nature of his feelings for his ward. Natasha's inte [...]

    4. There's a great review that already outlines the plot of this very unusual Harlequin, so I won't go into it. It's a guardian/ward story. But to jog my own memory, this is the one with the strip club. *happy sigh* I loved this. The hero was a beta absent-minded professor who woke up nicely. I loved the scene between him and one of the strippers when he was looking for the heroine. A delicious scene. The heroine was nicely confused, but not stupid. She saw through the OM fairly quickly. There's al [...]

    5. Probably one of the best old school type harlequins I have read. I was enchanted with the hero and heroine. The first five chapters were a bit bland but other than that, it was great and the ending, omg, I adored it so much!

    6. this was about a guardian-ward romance. natasha was a cousin of alexis and alexis was an editor? natasha wanted to be a writer. the story was set in cambridge. der was also an OW ariana whom natasha thought alexis was in love wid. a lot of all dat mischief was created by their nephew (a lil boy, just a kid really!think he was 8 years old), his name was william. he loved natasha and did not want her to go away to london. in trying to get alexis and natasha reveal their feelings, he provoked them [...]

    7. I loved this one -- satisfying older Harlequin. The hero is maybe a titch too absent-minded professor, and the guardian + first cousins (once removed) angle really adds to the ick factor, but still, I really enjoyed the chase of the romance in this one.

    8. This guardian-ward romance had a little bit of everything in it, from the tame to the scandalous: unrequited love, matchmaking, a cricket match, strippers, etc. It even contained a chick-lit vibe at times. What's not to like? Well, the writing style mainly. The plot rather than the characters drove the story, resulting in less angst and emotion. The writing seemed convoluted as well. Some passages were verbose and poetic, without making much sense or supporting the narrative. Alexis and Natasha' [...]

    9. I can't believe this is a 1985 Harlequin Presents. It's pretty scandalous for the time and for Harlequin specifically.Strippers and homosexuality - it's like reading a Rock Chick book.I have to say I liked it, but my favorite character was the 8-year-old William and his scheming ways. I would have liked a lot more of him in the book since he was the best character.My favorite part was the surprise towards the end when the H and h are leaving the strip club. Didn't see that coming at all. And, of [...]

    10. I loved this book, it was definitely different from the usual 'run of the mill' Mills & Boons. Also loved the hero - a cute, sweet, beta hero who wears glasses.

    11. Awfully long descriptionsd wish it had something moreIt was romantic and I found myself turning pages eagerly at some points but I kept saying 'what the hell 'e character in this book whom I give 5/5 is Alexis.he was protrayed very well

    12. not a great book but i really liked the family, the lolita kind of streak through it. the plot was really convoluted but the interactions between the characters was surprisingly good. loved her little cousin.
