It worked fine as a stand-alone. I didn't feel like I was missing out on any major plot issues by not reading the others first. There was mention of his other brothers and sister with a quick synopsis of what they do for a living, and mention of a tragedy that happened to his brother, Jack, but enough information was given to give you a sense of what you needed to know with the knowledge that he had his own book prior to this one.

Ellie Parker is a master at building walls around her heart. In the twenty-five years she’s been alive, Dex Remington has been the only person who has always believed in her and been there for her. But four years earlier she came to Dex seeking comfort, and then disappeared like a thief in the night, leaving him a broken man.
Dex Remington is one of the top PC game developers in the U.S. He’s handsome, smart, and numb. So damn numb th ...more
Ellie Parker has grown up in the “system” since she was five years old. Being bounced around from foster home to foster home and guarding herself from difficult memories has conditioned her to tread carefully with relationships and know when to run. However Dex Remington has been her friend since grade school and together they’ve depended on each other when life delivered some tough blows.
Now that they’ve grown, Dex has made his millions in the gaming industry and ...more
Don't get me wrong - Game of Love was sweet and pretty well written... but a girl can only take so much sugar. Dex was like no gamer in the history of ever because he had been moulded into this idealised hero figure. Ellie too was idealised. Before anyone points out the few reviewers who are bitching about her being whiny and having trust issues, umm NO. You lot have no clue. Do you really think people have traumatic childhoods but then turn 18 and go "well that's in the pas ...more
Game of Love is a kinda sweet story. Dex and Ellie are friends for ages and then they become a couple.
Ellie annoyed me too much. She had heaps of trust issues. It was going back and forth. And definitely it is not my cup of tea. I really couldn't enjoy it as the story wasn't really gripping.
And her trust issues just made it worse.
On the other hand, Dex is hot! Such a darling! <3
Overall, I wish I really enjoyed the story. But hope you have a better read out for this book.
My first by this author (Kindle Unlimited has me trying out new authors). Writing is quite good and the hero is a sweetie. Heroine Ellie, on the other hand, was a bit messed up and way too needy- she got annoying with her running away schtick. Props to our wonderful hero for putting up with so much!
A problem for me was the fact that the hero Dex was a super successful, and rich, developer of online games. They are simply not my thing, so the book spent an inordinate amount of time on t ...more

I think my heart just dilated a bit, because I couldn’t allow Dex not to be in it!

Game of Love is the first book that I have ever read by Melissa Foster, but it definitely won't be my last. Ellie and Dex's story is the tenth book in her Love In Bloom Series, but can be read as a standalone. I really enjoyed this book, and I can't wait to go back and read all the other ones in this series. I liked getting to meet the other Remington's in this story and I thought that Game of Love did a good job of introducing Sage for the ne ...more
Sorry to say this, but I just don't where all these stellar reviews come from. I'm just glad it was only a waste of time and not a waste of money as well since it was for free on Amazon.
Dex is a computer game developer who has only ever loved one girl, Ellie ( ugh I even had trouble remembering her name).
She grew up in foster care in his neighborhood and they became best friends with her climbing into his bedroom for comfort every night.

Ellie and Dex's story in GAME OF LOVE is beautiful, sweet and tender with characters I adore! This pair was amazing and likable right away, and there was something magical in the air when they're together. They were friends in high school, and with all of the turmoil Ellie was going through with being bounced from foster home to foster home, Dex was the one constant in her life.
Young, hot, handsome and wealthy nerd! Game of Love booked me from the first page up to the last.
Great start. You can never go wrong with a story that will get you hooked from its very first words. Besides that I dig Dex's character so much, I liked how Melissa Foster built up the story of Dex and Ellie.
Simple yet admirable characters. At first, I was really confused with Ellie's issue. However, with vivid explanations ...more
What initially drew me into this story was the fact that Dex was a sexy geek. For some reason I'm always intrigued by this type of 'hero'. Thankfully, Melissa Foster did not disappoint in her portrayal of Dex. He was sweet, nerdy and sexy as hell. His only flaw was his insecurity in regards to Ellie, but that was something I came to overlook easily once I got a clearer picture ...more

For me the two as a couple were well matched. They each had a hard time as young people and although Dex had siblings that helped him stay grounded Ellie was the touchstone person who provided him with much needed confidence when his strict father un ...more
the leading PC game developer and founder of Thrive Entertainment, Dex has not yet attained the same satisfaction in the game of
love. All he can think about right now, though, is the upcoming release of his latest creation, World of Thieves II.
Ellie Parker has seemingly overcome the odds. Moving from foster home to foster home was not easy. The one constant calm i ...more
Anyway, Dex has always protected his heart because he's vulnerable and doesn't want to be hurt. Four years back, his very best friend in the world, Ellie Parker, disappeared right after he confessed his heartfelt love to her.
She is a former foster child and has problems with trust. But when she turns up in Dex's life right before a big software relea ...more

If they have not read this book, or even this series, I would recommend listening to the book instead. The narrator made it a very pleasurable experience.
What about B.J. Harrison’s performance did you like?
I liked the whole experience. When I read the book, all I had was a picture on the cover in order to come up with what Dex looked like. But the picture didn't give me a voice and my head didn't do justice. Listening to Mr. Harrison tel ...more
