Games We Play reminded me of Will Work for Food in all the best ways. Kendall and Cooper had an honest, adult relationship. Kendall was very blunt as was Cooper but he wasn't always as forthcoming as her. I loved that push and pull because it felt authentic. It wasn't used as a gimmick to progress the story. The supporting characters were well developed and the descriptions of the town were excellent. Not only could you visualize Coopersville, it felt like a place you'd want to visit (in the ...more

I liked this book. From the beginning, the attention to details pulled you into the book. I like that the characters have more than one dimension. Midway through the book, you feel like you have gone to Cooperville and you know these people.

Kendall, the lead female character is smart and strong. She owns her space and she is a well developed character. The challenges she faced in this book were handled in a smart way that didn't lessen who she was. All the secondary characters were also develope

I liked the premise of this book. I liked the characters. I just felt cheated in the romance part of this book. Where was it? Everytime Kendall and Coop were together, for the most part, they were having sex. He never took her out, dated her or anything . Why couldn't he wine and dine her as if they were dating? THere are other things to do besides being at the bar day in and day out or spending time at the golf course. Small towns normally have bigger towns around them that give small town ...more

I really enjoyed Cooper and Kendall. I enjoy all of Ms. Robinson books, but I fell in love with the characters of this book. They were able to accept each others short comings and still build a great relationship.

With the summer off and a fresh breakup on her mind, Professor Kendall Edwards is happy to leave bustling Austin to spend the summer in the small town of Coopersville with her aunt. On the drive down, Kendall wonders if Coopersville’s reputation for racism and intolerance is well earned.

Before she even makes it into town, Kendall gets her flirt on big time with a hunk at the gas station. She runs into the same handsome stranger out on the town’s golf course, and what do you know, Mr. Gorgeous c

Ruthie Robinson is my favorite

I loved how smart this book is...very intelligent/intellectual dialogue.
I love how smart, sexy and at the same time nice the heroine is.
I love how strong and macho and unwittingly compassionate the hero makes his compassion seem sincere and sexy
I love how the heroine didn't over push but made her positions clear.
I love how the hero is so attracted to the heroine.
I love how the hero and heroine's love developed..not too fast but it unfolded at a moderately pa

Very well written!

I was looking for a book to read over the weekend and this one certainly held my attention. I fell in love with the characters from the very beginning. I would read more books by this author.

I truly enjoy sharing my More Than Skin Romances with a large variety of readers.

I grew up in Fort Worth, Texas. Attended Clark College as an undergrad, and completed my Masters at the University of Texas in Austin. Both of my degrees are in Economics. After working in the Banking industry, I am now doing what I love - telling stories.

I enjoy reading, gardening, movies and hanging out with my sp
