Book Description

Everyone has secrets that define them, a past that has shaped them, and a game they play - whether they know it or not.

Despite the fact they live next door to each other, Kade and Raya have never made an effort to speak, until a wild party, four frat boys, and... a bulldozer.

Sterling Shore was supposed to be a new start for eighteen-year-old Raya Capperton. Everything was working out perfectly until her two roommates were expelled for a prank, leaving Raya with the house she couldn't afford on her own. Fate intervenes before she has the chance to find a new home, but she struggles to decide if it's divine luck or the devil's cruel sense of humor.

Twenty-one-year-old Kade Colton has his life planned out, and everything he does is an elaborate game to aid him with his future endeavors. Coming from money has made Kade's life easy, but he wants to build his own name - his own future. The thing he doesn't realize... when you only put forth superficial effort, you only acquire superficial friends.

Raya is torn between being amused or disturbed by Kade and his philosophy, but the drive behind his determination isn't what Raya expected. Little by little, her hatred fades and is replaced by emotions she never would have believed she could have for the rich jerk she desperately doesn't want to care about. Too bad you can't force yourself not to care.

The problem is... Kade's shiny name can't be tarnished, and Raya has a jaded tie she can't cut loose. Nothing about them can work, nothing about them makes sense, but nothing can seem to stop them from trying.

*Not suitable for anyone under the age of eighteen

** No cliffhanger
**New Adult Contemporary Romance
**Descriptive sex

    4.0 out of 5 stars I love the name of this as I was hooked on ... 23 Aug. 2015
    By Lauren
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I love the name of this as I was hooked on the boom now I'm hooked on this series! At the start of this you expect Kade to be the bad boy that ends up really changing to be with Raya. that is not the case though and right from the start when you start getting to know him you can see he is really cares and has his head screwed on for the future. Normally you read about the guys who live in the now and don't plan ahead but everything Kade does is for his future. Kade is super rich whereas Raya isn't so throughout this she believes she isn't good enough for him and will taint his name if she stays around. she does give the relationship a try though and all is good for a while until an ex of Kades comes to spill the beans about Raya's past. Kade then says some things and they break up but the reason she stays away is because she doesn't believe she will ever be enough for him because of her past. I love that at the end it is her past that helps Kade out. Even though they weren't speaking she went to see him when something happens to one of his family members and that's when she realises that him and his family are on the way to losing everything that matters to Kade. This is when her past comes in to help out without Kade even knowing what she does. I really did enjoy this book! and is has some great supporting characters that I can't wait to read about.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 27 Feb. 2015
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Oh wow! Great book! Loved it!

    Raya is a hardworking scholarship student with a shady past. She lives next door to Kade, who's a rich, entitled jerk.

    Kade is monied, handsome and popular and loves to party. The two never speak.

    However, a serious incident during one of his parties results in Raya having to move in with Kade, and she finds out that Kade is nothing like his public persona.

    What begins as a hate-hate relationship evolves into something more. Kade and Raya are fantastic together! I love their chemistry and how Kade slowly reveals his true colours and gets past Raya's protective walls.

    This was a really great read - I could barely put it down! Just picked up the Sterling Store boxset to read more from this author.

    Hooked On The Game......I was 'Hooked' on this book ;-)
    The story was brill, trailer park girl falls for rich boy! Rich boy falls for poor girl! I liked how they got thrown together by Kade's dad aswell. And it wasnt insta-love! There was a build up which I liked.
    Loved the characters, Raya was witty and had me laughing at some things she came out with. I actually liked her conman Dad too! Kade was omg soooo yummy, ❤ he couldnt do no wrong in my eyes.
    I struggled to put this book down other than to do the, sleep, you get the rest lol. The story flowed from one sentence to the next, there wasnt a dull moment. Brilliant uncomplicated easy read (although I didnt see the con coming ;-) ) that I really enjoyed :-)

    4.0 out of 5 stars Really good 12 July 2014
    By Herbie
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I was given a recommendation to read this book and it lived up to all expectations. I can't wait to read Kade s POV. Written from Rayas POV, she's been stereo-typed because of her father who's been spending time in prison for being a con. She moves away from her home town to get away from the whispers and cat calling. She moves in with two other students who end up getting expelled. The millionaire neighbour, Kade loves parties and his two frat boys end up bulldozing her house in a drunken joy ride. She ends up having to move in with him and ends up falling for him. In the mean time he finds out about her father and basically stereo types her as being a con too. However the irony is you don't need to be a con with no money as the story reveals that a con can be anyone with or without money and social standing. It's a really good story .. so highly recommended

    5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked from the start 25 Jun. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I love this book. It had everything in it, from humour to angst to heat and drama. It was free to kindle at the time of posting this review but rest assured I would have paid a pretty penny for it and I can predict big things from this book alone. It has good descriptive writing that moves the story along at a good pace- I was never left feeling like the story lulled or my attention dropped off and although some of the scenarios seem a tad unrealistic, just lose yourself in the story and the brilliant characters, suspend the real world for a while and just enjoy a really entertaining and engaging book. I am so excited for the next in the series. I've found another great author to follow.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read 28 May 2014
    By Laura TOP 100 REVIEWER
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I have enjoyed this authors Deadly Beauties Series and like her writing style. I'm not a great fan of paranormals so was pleased when I saw she had written this contemporary series.

    There was a great build up to Kade and Raya's romance and I enjoy stories like that as I'm not a fan of insta love. The pacing of their romance was spot on. The love scenes are well written but nothing too graphic. I really liked both Kade and Raya but I was left wondering why Kade has kept himself remote from his family (apart from his Grandfather) when they seemed so lovely. That was a bit puzzling but there is apparently a book to come from Kade's POV so maybe it will be explained more in that.

    The book flowed really well until towards the end when I thought more could have been made of the fall out between Kade and Raya. I was expecting a big argument but it just sort of petered out and then jumps to a fortnight later where things seem to have moved along quickly with concern to Raya's Dad and it almost felt like I had missed a chapter out?

    I felt it became a bit far fetched towards the end but then I enjoyed that we got to see Kade fight for Raya. All in all, this was an enjoyable read and a nice romance. I definitely like the way this author writes.

    Some good characters were introduced and I'm looking forward to reading their stories in the series. It's Tag next and that one sounds good!
