In a high-stakes game of love, attraction, and desire, two people playing for all the wrong reasons are about to discover how delicious it can be when plans go deliciously awry and love is all that matters. Like father, like daughter. That’s what businessman Alex Trahern thinks about Isabel Harrison. If the prestigious headhunter thinks she can steal his top employee, just like her father stole his dad’s ideas, she’s dead wrong. Alex is always a man with a plan, and his plan is to get revenge on John Harrison through his daughter. But there’s no contingency plan for the impact Isabel’s sparkling green eyes and honey brown hair have on the decidedly non-business side of his brain… If at first you don’t succeed, change the game. After some relationship flameouts, Isabel’s decided to leave love out of it and approach her search for a husband like finding a suitable job candidate. And according to her list of requirements, Alex Trahern certainly has potential. He’s sexy. (Check.) Forceful and fascinating. (Check, check.) Also arrogant, obnoxious, and way too hot for her own good. (Erase. Start over.) Now, if only she could find out what he’s really after…

Change the Game by Lucy Monroe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This has what used to be one of my favorite romance tropes in it. Man is out for revenge and he doesn’t care about what or who gets in his way but yet he finds himself attracted to the daughter of the man he hates and convinces her to marry him. This isn’t a dark story – there is plenty of humor when they meet because Isabel isn’t a pushover and she fights for her beliefs. Alex was basically a good guy torn between a revenge he’s wanted for years and about wanting to have Isabel also. He makes quite a few mistakes and I have to say Isabel is more of a forgiving person than I would ever be but deep down you knew he did care for her and had hopes he would make the right decision in the end. This also had the bonus of another romance – Alex’s partner and secretary – but their romance didn’t end well and it’s the set up for the next book in the series.
