The Game Plan

A beard-related dare and one hot-as-hell kiss changes everything.NFL center Ethan Dexter’s focus has always been on playing football and little else. Except when it comes to one particular woman. The lovely Fiona Mackenzie might not care about his fame, but she’s also never looked at him as anything more than one of her brother-in-law’s best friend. That ends now. Fi doesn...

    See that utterly pathetic pile of melted, swooning goo on the floor right now? Yep. That's me. Who would have thought I'd meet my end at the hands of a bearded, pierced, and man-bun wearing virgin?

    Because if anyone was going to make my manwhore and asshole loving self fall completely head over heals for a virgin, it had to be Kristen Callihan. Having read 2 other male virgin books before this and being mostly underwhelmed, third time was most certainly the charm for me. Because this book? I loved it. I beyond loved it. I want to marry it and have it's babies. I want to rub myself in it and roll around basking in it's pure awesome all day. I want to lick it. Alright, you get the point here I think.

    Ethan "Dex" Dexter has always been he voice of reason. The calm and collected one. The unassuming lumbersexual. Sexy, sure. A little shy, maybe. But there was also always something clearly swimming under that calm surface and you just knew that it would come out when he got his own book. And if you haven't? Clearly you haven't read the Game On series yet. I suggest you rectify that immediately.

    Dex has had his eye on Fionna since the first day he met her. Fionna happens to be his college teammates and best friend Drew's sister in law. Two years ago she may have been too young for him. But now? All rules are off. As an NFL center, Dex is accustomed to assessing the defense and finding a way to run right through it. And it doesn't matter what defenses Fi throws out at him; they don't live in the same city, she's not into professional athletes...because when Dex sets his eyes on her, all bets are off. Game on.

    What I love particularly about this series, aside from the swoony heroes that somehow get better with each new book, is that the timeline progresses. What I mean is, with

    started when the boys were in college, and The Game Plan finds them as NFL professionals. The timeline for them progresses and isn't just stagnant with each new couple, which makes the story that much better. Because with each new book, you always get a little more about the couples from the past ones and I will never have enough of that.

    Ethan is quite easily my favorite hero in this series to date. It just doesn't get any better than him. For once an author managed to give the readers a virgin hero, but actually have a good reason to go along with it. The character development is what makes this as good as it was. Dex is a character that you will fall for after just the first chapter, and continue to fall even harder with each new one. He's this perfect balance of sweet and sexy. Dirty talker and romantic.

    Fionna was the perfect ying to his yang. She may fight anything serious with him for a hot second, but it doesn't take Dex long to tear through all of her defenses. I really loved her personality and vulnerability. I really loved that she's just as protective of him as he is of her. She's not a perfect character, but she owns her imperfections. As a matter of fact she makes you like her

    her imperfections.

    Kristen Callihan has written yet another deliciously swoony romance in her addicting series. This book had a little of everything and all of it perfectly balanced; great story, incredibly sexy, swoon worthy romantic, all tied together with wonderful secondary characters that just bring it all together. I couldn't get enough of it. There wasn't one thing about this book that I didn't love. But at the center of everything was Dex. *dreamy pervy sigh* Who would have ever thought I'd be raving this much about a male virgin. But this sweet guy had just the right amount of edge to him to appease even perverts like me. I loved him to absolute pieces.

    If you haven't yet discovered this series, you've been living under a rock and need to come out immediately and see the light. If sexy sports romances are your thing, it just doesn't get better than Game On. Period. If you've read it and loved it, prepare to have your heart stolen by Dex. Considering each book just keeps getting better and better, I can't wait to see what Kristen Calliahan has in store for us next.

    This is the first time I ever considered putting a book boyfriend's name in my screen name as is all the rage.

    In fact...lemme go...

    Bam. Done.

    Seriously though, I loved

    about Dex.

    Even the dreaded man bun.

    I love, quiet, strong, silent types.

    I even loved Fiona.

    Even when she got...indecisive.

    Seriously though, I just LOVED these two together.

    I was a little curious to see how the whole "Virgin Hero" thing would play out...because sometimes that can really turn into a train wreck outside of that usually awesome "sliding home for the first time" scene...

    But I should have known that I can always place my trust in Kristen Callihan.

    At this point, she could crap on a piece of paper and tell me it's about football and I would read it.

    My only beef now?

    I'm fucking pissed at myself for blowing through this one so fast.

    And must now begin the interminable wait for the next one.

    But them's the breaks.

    And that my fellow reader friends is exactly how a romance novel should be written. Readers, this author is so insanely talented it's almost criminal just how good Kristen Callihan actually is. I'm so in awe of her ability to grab me into the heart of her story telling. You'd have to be mad not to fall in love with this author and her crazy good, romantic inventiveness. If by any chance you haven't yet invested your time and read a book by this author, then the best advice I can give you today is; go and grab this series. I didn't think it was possible to love this set of books anymore than I already did but Callihan has blown my expectations out of the water. Bravo.

    Ethan Dexter has stood on the sidelines and fallen in love with the sassy, confident and beautiful Fiona Mackenzie for years. Unable to shake his desire for his best friends sister in law this larger than life hero decides to take the plunge and make his intentions known. Fiona 'Fi' Mackenzie has never really been interested in a forever kind of love, in fact she is known to those that are closest to her as flighty and fickle. Ready to shake this identity off, Fiona is happy to give this hulking, hero a chance at winning her over and Dex is ready to take on the challenge. Follow this beard loving, four star worthy journey and watch Fi and Dex navigate the uncertainly of life as a couple and all the heart clenching moments in between.

    Kristen Callihan is unstoppable, this book is unputdownable and these characters are unbelievably adorable. There is plenty to get wrapped up in embarking on the latest in the 'game on' series and once again this author has proven why so many readers have been counting down the days to get their hands all over this delectable romance novel. This book had its moments where it was exceptionally swoon worthy, the type of romance where you begin to hope that someone would invent a travel device that meant you were transported into the storyline personally. However with that being said, Kristen Callihan did a bloody good job of making me feel apart of the plot, so much so I honestly felt every emotion and fell in love right alongside Dex and Fi. With Plenty of flirting, passion and dirty talk I was well won over by this books hero and as for the leading lady, she's the kind of girl that I wouldn't complain about being my best friend. If you want spine tingling romantic excitement then look no further. kristen Callihan meant business with this latest under her writing belt and now I'm left begging for more.

    I'm going be short and sweet here. This book couldn't have been closer to a five star if it tried. Personally for my tastes a romance novel will always be winning brownie points if it gives me long drawn out sexual tension. The kind that has you clinging to your kindle and your heart beating with crazy anticipation of the couple finally getting together. And whilst this book had a lot of things going for it, it also had a huge case of the dreaded insta love - the right here, right now, I can't bear to be without your love for another minute style insta. All of the slow burn and anticipation was missing in this book for little old me. However, as far as a book with this as a main theme goes it was definitely winning some romance winning points. In addition I did feel at times the book was drawn out a little, but in spite of all my little niggles with this book it was still outstanding and I loved these characters something fierce. So to the already dedicated fans of this series; have no fear this latest in the 'game on' series is likely to knock your socks off.

    Kristen Callihan is a sports themed romance writing goddess. She certainly knows how to tickle 'my love for this genre' fancy and if this book is the last of this series I think I'm going to be feeling a little on the heartbroken side. To Kristen Callihan - please don't ever stop providing the romance reading community with your sweaty 'I can't help but fall in love with you' heroes and delightful heroines. And to those readers who have loved the characters of this series, you are about to fall in love with one giant of a tattooed hero and his unforgettable heroine. This author has oodles of gorgeous talent and this book is one that is not to be missed. *sigh* will I ever tire of this genre? You can believe me when I say it's likely to be never. Enjoy readers, 'Dex' is waiting to be read. Kisses.

    I think that romances with athletes, college or professional, are definitely on my top faves list along with the billionaire bad boys and bad ass bikers.

    series gives us some seriously HOT book boyfriends to swoon over. I am still very partial to Gray and was so happy that he has a huge presence

    (BR with Dee and Mel)

    I think that romances with athletes, college or professional, are definitely on my top faves list along with the billionaire bad boys and bad ass bikers.

    series gives us some seriously HOT book boyfriends to swoon over. I am still very partial to Gray and was so happy that he has a huge presence in this story.

    We've met Ethan Dexter, aka Dex, in the two previous books, but never really got a true sense of who he was. I really fell in love with him in this story and have a newly formed appreciation for body piercings!! Ethan has had a secret crush on Fiona Mackenzie for almost two years but has never made a move out of respect for his best friend, Grayson, since she is his sister in law, and also because he is somewhat of an introvert and insecure. In high school, he wasn't what you would call a hottie and he was always living in the shadows of his best friends, Gray and Drew. He wasn't bitter about it and learned to accept the way things were. But he also kept his defenses up to protect himself.

    Fiona is considered the flighty one in her family. She always goes out and tries new endeavors but as soon as things get tough, she quits. She has yet to follow through on anything. She is this way with men as well. Fi would rather have meaningless relationships with guys that don't stand a chance of lasting, rather than get mixed up in something serious. She definitely does not want anything to do with Football players because of her father. Her parents divorce really affected her and she has a deep fear of being left behind.

    Fiona and Ethan end up staying over at Gray and Ivy's house during the same week. They almost instantly become an item. But Fiona is hesitant because her life is back in NYC and Ethan's is in New Orleans, since he's the Center for the Saints. She doesn't think a long distance relationship will work and also is afraid that she will lose her anonymity by being with a professional football player.

    There's a refreshing twist thrown into this story. Usually it's the woman who ends up being a virgin, but not in this book. No, Ethan is the one who is still holding on to his v card and the reasons why will definitely break your heart. I will say that he did wait for the right girl and boy was he a fast learner!! I definitely did take a cold shower because once Ethan gets a taste of what he's been missing, he's seriously insatiable!!

    Not everything is smooth sailing for the two. There will be some challenges the couple will have to face. Will their love for each other be strong enough to overcome anything?

    If you haven't read this series, you definitely need to bump this one up your TBR!!

    Kristen Callihan delivered another enjoyable installment to this series. Ethan Dexter was a pretty wonderful hero. He has admired Ivy’s sister from a far and decides it’s time to make his move. Also ladies, he’s a twenty-four year old virgin!

    Ethan and Fiona spend vacation time at Ivy and Gray’s and Ethan makes his move.

    Ethan’s unfailing confidence in what they can be together is swoon worthy. Not to mention, the sex scenes are pretty steamy.

    I found myself more in like with this story than love, but I still enjoyed it. There’s minimal drama that is thankfully addressed between the couple before things go too far. Sexy Ethan tames flighty Fiona, his certainty and maturity was very well done.
