The Game, Kirsten Backhard by Shawnte Borris

The Game, Kirsten Backhard by Shawnte Borris



SYNOPSIS


Kirsten Backhard is a highly respected senior negotiating executive who plays with some of the most powerful men in her field.



She is confident, sexy and hell on heels. She fights with a straight face, doesn’t back down easily and she has no scruples about using her ASSets to get the deal done her way.



Kirsten loves the thrill of toying with the game in a man’s world. She is in control of both her professional and personal life, until one heartbreaking night changes everything and for the first time she starts losing.

Can Kirsten negotiate the game of love as well as she does at work? Can she play a love-em and leave-em game as well as a man does? 

Or did she already lose when her heart was dealt to the one man who broke it?
Contains crude language, sexual intercourse, and really bad jokes.


Jennifer's Review 

“Love is most weak when there is more doubt that there is trust, but love is most strong when you learn to trust even with all the doubts.”
~Shawnte Borris - The Game~

This book is filled with tons of emotions. While I was reading this I laughed, cried, and occasionally wanted to toss my Kindle across the room. Kirsten is a highly respected senior negotiating executive who doesn’t take any shit from anyone. Drew is Kirsten’s brother, Derek’s, friend and he and Kirsten have been having a secret relationship. As the story begins Kirsten is confiding in Liz, her best friend, that she just caught Drew cheating. Kirsten decides that she is not going to let a man hurt her ever again; from now on she will use them for sex and that is all she needs. Then Kirsten’s world begins to crumble even more when she learns that her best friend, Liz, is getting married. Kirsten is happy for Liz but she knows that things will never be the same for them again. Eventually Drew redeems himself when the truth finally comes out about what happened the night that Kirsten saw him with the other woman. As you learn more about Kirsten you can begin to understand why she is so protective of her heart and tried to close herself off from love. This is one of those books that not only draws you in with the main characters but makes you fall in love with the secondary characters as well. The style of writing was a little hard for me to really get into at the beginning of this book because I am a very visual person and I tend to like a little more descriptions in books. However, the more I read and got to know the characters in this story I was hooked! I am really looking forward to Shawnte Borris continuing this series so that I can find out what happens with Liz and Derek.

I give this book 4 Stars

EXCERPT

Teaser One:

First of all, Mother, it is called a sperm bank, not a sperm bar.I cannot believe I am having this conversation right now. “And where did you get this information from?”
Max looked over at me, smirking.
“Why does it matter where I heard it from? What will people think?” cried my mother.
“F**k! Mom, no one is gonna care where or how I get a baby.” I want to crawl into a hole and die. “Mom, you wouldn’t by any chance be talking to Marie, would you? Is that where all this came from? Did she tell you I’m planning to go to a spermbank? Or did she tell you I should think about going to a spermbank?”
“That’s not the point, Kirsten. The point is that it’s time for you to settle down and think about having a family. You need to be more like Marie,” mmom lectured.
“Like MarieMy sister, Marie? The one who wears yoga pants and ponytails everywhere.”

Teaser Two:

Meg, Caroline, and Amanda all stared at me with glistening eyesbefore they jumped off the bar top.
“Someone is going to get laid by the very hot bartender,” Sandragiggled as she joined the girls.
“Shut up, I said.
“Here. Put this in your purse.” Meg pushed something in between my fingers.
“What is it?” I asked.
“It’s a high-tech condom.”
“High-tech condom?” I held it in my hand“What the hell?”
“Girl, it’s got ginkgo biloba in it. It stimulates the clit something fierce.”
“Really?” I put the clit-stimulator condom in my purse. Oh hell.“I need a drink.”
