Oh the much awkward.

I couldn't get on board with either Chloe or Grant.

Chloe had low self-esteem issues that stemmed from her sister's death, I guess? Or was it before then? I'm not sure because none of it made sense. She loved cos-play and role playing during sex because that was the only time she could let loose. According to her, no one would want to be around the real Chloe...which we never really got to know.

And then there's Grant. When he's doing his role-play

3.5 - "How'd a soldier like you learn to lick a woman like that?" Stars!

The second book in the Gamers series pretty much takes up where its predecessor Changing His Game left off. Except this book focusses on Gamers Magazine owner Grant Osprey, and the woman he meets at a Comic-Con gathering.

This is a book of coincidences and collisions. Grant and Chloe agree on one night, but neither of them really forgets the other, what follows are lots of unplanned meetings and connections between the pair,

He wanted to leave breadcrumbs in their wake to show him the way back. Although something told him, after this night, he might never find his way back to the way things were.

Having absolutely loved Changing His Game, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Grant's book. Something about single dads never fails to draw me right in and Grant's joking and easy-going personality just added to the intrigue. Then there's that sexy nerd appeal of the cosplay (which I never imagined I'd enjoy).

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.

I am in love with this series! While I am very much a mood reader, I can't even imagine being in a mood where I won't want to read these books. They're that addicting. With the Gamers series I just know I'm going to get my guilty pleasure fix. These books are not-so-pure, sexy fun with hot nerds and the smart women who love them. As my saying goes, you can definitely chock this relationship up to love at first page...

Playing For Her Heart by Megan Erickson is the first book that I have read from this author and I have to say that I am quite impressed with this book. I found myself devouring and enjoying this quick sexy hot read with the added touch of gamer geek vibe to help spice things along. And when you toss in a hot single dad, I am sold!!!

Grant and Chloe get up to some naughty, nerdy role-playing. I also might have showed my Game of Thrones geekdom in this book. Sorry/not sorry.

Also? This book has one of my favorite end-of-the-book makeup scenes I've ever written. :)

Who knew that cosplay, nerds and penetrative testing could be so damn HOT? I mean, I read Changing His Game, so I had an idea that Megan Erickson’s Gamers series was super erotic, but hells bells, it’s been a good 24 hours (and one more book) since I finished Playing For Her Heart and I am STILL worked up…

Chloe Talley uses cosplay as a shield. Hiding her true self behind her character, she’s able to step away from the dorky, awkward, broken girl she normally is, and indulge in a little…fun.

I loved the first book in the series, but I enjoyed this one even more! Grant was a total chaser, be still my heart.

I was actually kind of wary for this one because the storyline involves role play sex, which isn't really my cuppa. Whenever there are scenes like that in books or TV I always cringe and feel embarrassed for those involved. Pretending to be someone else in bed just seems false to me, and I can't take it seriously. Just not my cup of tea. Thankfully the scenes like that in this book

By now, I think everyone and their mothers know my intense and deep love affair with Megan Erickson's books. This woman's writing turns me into a complete fangirl and I absolutely have no regrets for shoving her books in my friends' faces. The Gamers series is one of Megan Erickson's hottest series to date and I honestly can't get enough of the characters that each of these books feature. When I opened Playing for Her Heart, I heard that teensy voice inside my head that expressed doubt that I
4.5 stars

I absolutely loved Playing for Her Heart, if you're fed up with controlling alpha billionaires and fancy falling for a nerdy hero instead you can't go wrong with Megan Erickson's Gamer series. After really enjoying Changing His Game I was excited when I was offered a review copy of the sequel but I have to admit I wasn't sure if the author would be able to top Austin who is one of my all time favourite nerdy heroes. I'm very happy to say that she managed it and Grant has now sailed into
Um more please! This book was fantabulous! I literally read it in mostly one sitting! I couldn't put it down! It was sexy as hell! Hilarious! Great characters who were nerds and I loved them for it! :D The story line was well developed and I was captivated from page one to the end. I haven't read the first in the series yet but I never felt like I was missing anything. It was awesome.

You know how much I love it when a one night stand comes back to bite someone on the butt right? Well in Megan Erickson's Playing For Her Heart this happens in a unique and interesting way when two people attending a ComicCon convention meet and enjoy each other carnally all while staying in the characters they are dressed as for the convention. So when they meet each other again in "real life" they both find themselves trying to

Megan Erickson's Gamers series is more on the nerdy side, and I like that. They are stand alone reads, although supporting characters show up throughout the series. Grant is an owner of Gamer magazine and in his spare time likes to participate in cosplay - where he dresses as a favorite video game character and goes to Comic-Con. When the book opens, he is dressed as a hero from a video game called Arc, and has nailed it.

Our heroine, Chloe, notices his immaculate costume, and can't keep her eyes

Chloe is socially awkward and prefers to dress up as characters from her favorite video games when she wants a hook up. She's into cosplay so that she can be whoever she wants and doesn't have to let anyone in. When she goes to Comic Con and meets a guy also into cosplay, she spends a wild night with him and sneaks out after he falls asleep. Chloe has no plans to ever see him again but has no choice when she finds out he's her brother's business partner.

I enjoyed Chloe and Grant's story. They

3.5 stars. Sexy hot read. Grant and Chloe were funny and cute. love Sydney! Grant and her are cute together. the reason I didn't give it more stars Is because I don't know if he used a condom in college with his one night stand. it's not brought up.also you know he played around but I don't think he was a manwhore. I am curious about Ethan I wonder if we will get a book about him:D

H And h both have sexual pasts. H Loved the women . it's not talk about to
I didn't really like this one. I didn't buy it for one single second. There is no f'n way that Chloe could pull that off. Nope, no way. The two extremes were just too much.

My girl just told me that these books, Brazen I think they are called, are meant to be kind of over the top and I can totally dig that. This one was just over the top, unbelievable and not in the "this is fun" kind of way.

Shame because I love Sydney and would have loved to love this book.

Bring on the boy lovin'!
I didn't think anything could top Austin and Marley, but damn if Grant and Chloe don't come close.

I LOVED THESE TWO. I loved Grant and Sydney from the first book and I was beyond excited to get his story. Who knew it would take a quiet, shy girl to nail him down? Chloe is definitely not like the type of female MCs I usually love. She's a serious introvert and maybe a bit socially awkward, but she shines in her own way. The two of them together is like throwing gas on a fire.

Chloe really got on my nerves for most of the book and as much as I want to read Ethan's story I doubt I will unless it is m/m. I plan to read Chad and Owen which is book three. (rating: 2.5)

These books are so much fun and I love them. They are so sexy and funny and quirky and such a fresh type of romance. These are not your typical characters and that is probably my favorite thing about these books. They are a great romance, but with characters you won’t find anywhere else.

Chloe is a likable and relatable character. The amount of guilt and pressure she is shouldering because of her family broke my heart. I loved how smart she was and
Chloe Talley was an introverted, software specialist, who liked nothing better than kicking back in her yoga pants and nerdy tshirt. But when she attended Comic-Con, she made sure her get up correctly portrayed Sari, the enslaved ex-princess, who featured in Aric's Revenge, this year's star attraction.

Grant Osprey was part owner of Gamers magazine, and had just had a new investment partner. Ethan Talley, who had taken over from Austin Rivers, who we met in the first story of this series.

That was so much fun. Loved Grant. And his dirty mouth.

Wow, this book was delicious and Grant totally lived up to my expectations from book 1. I knew he was going to be drop dead sexy, but he also turned out to be charming, sweet, caring, loving, and all the things swoon-worthy! Chloe was adorable and I can totally relate to her identity crisis and search for finding herself. It took me till 19% into the book to connect the dots and figure out who Chloe was, I completely blame my lust for Grant on this oversight.

Now lets talk about the story line,

Can we talk about just how much I love this series? (And, literally, everything Megan writes.) But this series!? It speaks to me on so many levels. I love that her heroes and heroines are different than so many of the ones you see in romance books. I love me some nerds. Of course, I also love dirty talkin' heroes, so... bonus points. I love the humor and heart Megan brings to her books and I'm always guaranteed a fair few feels while reading. I

I am completely speechless upon finishing this one. This book is Megan's hottest book to date and I am still feeling a bit flushed even afterwards! While I enjoyed the first book in the Gamers series, I really loved this one. I think it had to do with the emphasis on the role-playing between Chloe and Grant. It was so hot to see these two act out their fantasies with one another and being the gamer girl I am, I would have no problem slipping into one of those roles if a sexy guy like

First 5 stars of 2016 as I just loved everything about this book from start to finish!

My first thought after reading the first chapter or two was: Why didn't I read this sooner?! Because OMG I'm in love with Megan Erickson's writing and her Gamers series!

Erickson's awesome writing style combines scorching hot and sexy with humor and emotion. This is my kryptonite! And she did an excellent job of having me go through it all as I could be all hot and bothered on one page and having trouble

I liked this book but it wasn’t AMAZING.
Grant and Chloe both agree to have meaningless and nameless sex for one night. From this hot encounter, single dad Grant tries his best to forget about her but when he sees her again, their sizzling attraction comes back full force.

I had a soft spot for Grant, he is awesome as a dad, and is not afraid to lay his feelings on the table. This man was patient and took Chloe ‘s pleasure at heart, wanting her to blossom and stop
