Susan Scott Shelley's latest book in the Game of Love series captivates its audience with the lovable characters of Irisa Rostov and Domingo Torres. Irisa Rostov is the band manager for the multi-platinum band, The Fury, and sister to their lead singer. The highly stressful job of managing the band's activities becomes even more stressful when the band seems to be disconnecting with each other. Domingo "Dom" Torres also seems to have his share of problems. A fight during Spring Training lands him in hot water with the general manager and constant critique on his baseball plays from his father. Upon meeting each other, sparks fly and desire sizzles between the two. A look here and a touch there is all that is needed to convey their feelings for each other. Deciding to give this relationship a chance, both Irisa and Dom seem happier than normal. But then work comes in between them. Will they forego their relationship to keep their careers or will they manage to juggle both before irreparable damage is done to both their professional and personal lives?
Susan Scott Shelley's book had me captivated from page 1. The characters, Irisa and Dom, were absolutely adorable. Their vulnerabilities and strengths were well balanced and their character development throughout the story was written superbly. This is your typical 'boy meets girl and they fall in love' scenario, but the story is anything but typical. Shelley managed to convey the complex emotions and desires of each character, both main and secondary, with just the right amount of detail, allowing the reader to form a bond with the characters. The amount of sports jargon was also limited to popular phrases and words so that even those who are not sports inclined can follow the story without getting lost. If you love books in a series in which the extra characters in the book get their own book, then you'll love this series. I'm looking forward to the next book. Enjoy.
