He controls the game, but she’s rewriting all the rules…

Marley Lake is no stranger to awkwardness, but getting caught watching a dirty GIF by the company’s hot new IT guy exceeds even her standards. That is, until she realizes he's as turned on by it as she is. But with a big promotion on the line, she refuses to let her current dry spell be her downfall. Maybe.

...nice and safe boys didn't hold their hands at her throat. They didn't slip their hands into her panties in a public place- no matter how secluded- and whisper dirty things to her.

The very second that I started reading Changing His Game, I knew that I have found me a new author to love. The lighthearted and humorous writing style grabbed my attention right away. As did the nerdy and tech heroine that got caught looking at a sexy gif on tumblr by who she thinks is the hot g

Oh my ovaries. This book was everything I hoped it would be and more. I started it during my break at work, which wasn't the smartest idea on multiple levels. For one, it's dirty as hell. My cheeks must have been flaming. Also, it meant having to put it down a third of the way through, and that was pure torture. I so wanted to devour this book in one sitting. It's the perfect combination of nerdy and sexy, with lovable characters and a fun story line, and I had to see where Megan was

Any book that starts with this kind of line is a good book for me.

"Of course, she was all for rainbows. Her favorite show as a kid was Rainbow Brite."


Yes, I'm a sucker for 80s cartoons and any mention and appreciation of them always get points from me. That one line gave me hope and a smile.

These lines made me laugh and that's when I settled in for a good ride!

I really enjoyed Changing His Game, set around the staff and owners of Gamers Magazine it offered a sexy twist on the boss/employee romance trope.

Marley and Austin were both really likeable characters, their story although full of the usual tropes was easy to engage in. This is my first read by Megan Erickson, and her writing style really did work for me, she also gave a few unique twists on the norm which kept this b

This was a fun and sexy little nugget.

Marley and Austin were explosive in the bedroom (and the movie theater, and the supply closet, and...well, you get my point). I loved that Marley wasn't afraid to go after and admit what she wanted. She had particular tastes in the bedroom and she fully gave herself to Austin to fulfill every one of those desires. And Austin....well, he had no problem taking control and doling out sexy demands.

However, I don't feel like the relationship betwee

Did I read the same book that my favorite bloggers loved? Because this book made me want to tear my hair off my head. Basically because of the insta-attraction, insta-sex (this is totally a thing now), insta-love and awkward dialogue. So. Many. Cringe. Moments.

Deleting review because of reasons. They are easy enough to find if you care to.
I'm leaving my original rating and review under a spoiler tag to evidentiate I did read it and the majority of this space is dedicated to the book.

Marley Lake is a woman in what has historically been known as a man’s world. She’s an editor for Gamers Magazine and she’s amazing at what she does. But her personal life has taken the back seat to establishing and proving herself. A late night in the office, a deadline on the very near horizon and a frozen computer brings the IT guy, Austin Rivers to her desk… What she completely forgets about is the dirty GIF that was on her monitor when it froze.

Austin Rivers shouldn’t be attracted to Marley

"He talked like a textbook and looked like an underwear model. The combination did absolutely everything for her libido."

I loved the concept behind this novella. I loved the geekiness of it all! Unfortunately, I had one HUGE issue with this novella, which was the inconsistent quality of the writing. For example, we would get some really great moments, accompanied by some really good writing.... And then, a couple of pages later, the quality of the writing would just plummet. Sadly, these inc

It looks like Brazen books are not for me. I’ve tried several and none of them worked for me. I don’t know what the problem is. Maybe it’s because they are short. It’s hard to develop characters and make interesting romance when you are so limited in pages, especially when a big chunk of the book is taken by sex scenes.

And I really expected to enjoy Changing His Game. A sexy nerd as a hero, a strong and driven heroine, forbidden romance (especially forbidden romance!) and sexy times – what not t

Imagine this. You're at work and on your computer doing what you usually do, but your mind starts to wander and decide to open up your Tumblr, yup the naughty one, what else? Just when you're staring at a smoking hot gif, your computer crashes right before your deadline to send something to your boss.

Enter Austin Rivers, tall, dark, broody and the last guy you want to see when you call tech support to get your computer working. But Austin is no average tech support guy, he is a se

Okay, I knew going in that this was going to be steamy. And it is. But I also knew that I like some of the author's other works and, bonus, gaming. And it doesn't disappoint. Erickson tells a tight story and manages to make this believable enough even in such a short work—a short work that would be half its length if you removed all the sex. Interestingly, she even got the tech right (though the games business is nowhere near as remunerative as she supposes—particularly with regards to games jou ...more

This is a new author for me, and I was in no way disappointed.

Marley Lake is a workaholic. Head of the copy editing team at a prominent Gamers magazine, she finds herself up against a deadline when her computer freezes.

Austin Rivers answers her helpdesk dilemma, and whilst delving into her software, he finds a sexy GIF that Marley has been keeping herself occupied with.

I like the gaming aspect of this book.

Honestly, I am only reading this series to get to some boy on boy lovin' that I am promised in book 3. I am not even looking to see who the MC's are. It is a fun game I am playing in my head.

I've been out of the MF world for quite a bit and this book is a reminder of why I needed something fresh.

It's a fun and over the top read with lots of sex and but mostly unbelievable. On to book 2 I go ;)

Changing His Game was sexy and fun!  The storyline, which moved quickly, was too cute.  I caught myself smiling from time to time, and the characters helped with that because they were so quirky and unique.  And the sexy level in this book was through the roof scorching hot.  While I did have a few personal issues, this was still an adorable book.

When Megan told me she had written a Brazen novel I about died. Seriously. I love her and all her books but to know that she wrote something that was going to be seriously hot, seriously dirty, and Adult was more than I ever thought I needed. And then I read Changing His Game and it was everything I thought it would be and more.

Marley is my kind of woman. She obviously has a strong character and work ethic which I admire greatly. She loves her brother unconditionally which I love. She’s also ea

Why I Read This Book: The setup of the IT guy catching Marley looking at a naughty GIF at work was all it took. I pre-ordered this book, something I don’t normally do.

What I Liked: I enjoy reading work place romances. There were a lot of hot, steamy scenes, including one that takes place in the office supply closet. I have to mention Austin’s solo shower scene as well. And the dinner date where Austin just couldn’t keep his hands off Marley. RAWR.

Chad was hilarious with his funny tech puns!

Nerdy boy + snarky girl + video games & comic con? Mother fucking sold.

Marley and Austin are both fantastic. I loved being in both of their heads. She's snarky and he's reserved and it's just perfection. Her brother Chad was a lot of fun and there's a teenager named Sydney who almost stole the show.

I don't even know how to review this I loved it so much. How about: it was a quick read with characters I adored and a plot I loved.

Side note: go read everything Megan puts out.

Marley Lake is a focused, career-oriented woman. Who just so happens to be checking her tumblr when she gets the dreaded “rainbow wheel” on her mac as she’s racing towards a deadline. She calls IT and then Austin Rivers shows up. He helps her unlock alot of things, including her computer. When he sees the GIF she was viewing, things get heated. And along the way, romance happens.

Megan Erickson is one of my favorite NA authors. When I discovered that she was releasing an Entangled Brazen (total guilty pleasure of mine) featuring a sexy nerdy guy, every bone in body basically screamed "WANT". I was fortunate enough to be able to get an ARC and as soon as I saw it in my inbox, I immediately dove in and holy crap did Megan Erickson deliver in every way!

It has been a while since I’ve read a Brazen and damn did I need this book. It was so steamy and so fun and just UGH it was exactly what I needed. I love how intelligent and determined the characters are AND they are sexy! So many books don’t focus on the aspects outside of the sexy, but this book does and I can’t even begin to explain how much I appreciate that.

Changing His Game has 2 of my favorite elements in a book...quick and dirty ;) Seriously though, it does have 2 well developed characters too that were close to my heart. Marley is a strong, independent and career minded woman who works as an editor at a gaming magazine. Austin is a silent partner in the magazine but misleads Marley into thinking he's just her co-worker, an IT guy that's there to help fix her computer one evening. He's also happens to be the creat

Alpha. Nerd. Like really, do you need more reason to read this book???

This was vera, vera hot. I mean my friend Danielle told me this was hot but damn... That nerd had some mouth on him.

This was some sexy, sweet, low angst fun. Could it have done with being a wee bit longer so that it could have a wee bit more story than sex? Maybe. But it's that hot who the hell cares?

This sexy and fun romance is the story of Marley and Austin. As if getting caught with a dirty GIF on her work computer by the new IT guy isn't bad enough, the fact that he's hot and Marley can picture them together in a pose just like it would be truly embarrassing - if it wasn't obvious that he seems just as interested in the picture, and her. A hot and intense fling with a work colleague whom she hardly ever sees on the job is totally justifiable, right? Only Austin's got a few secrets up his ...more

I'm not entirely sure what just happened, but I think I fell in love with a socially awkward, dominant dork of a hot man. Nothin' wrong with that. Nerds are sexy, y'all.

Marley Lake is no stranger to control. In order to rise through the ranks of the male dominated Gamers magazine, she's had a firm grasp on all aspects of her career and her life. But when her co-worker finds a dirty GIF while repairing her computer, control seems to fly out the window.
