*Received an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

I have such mixed feeling about this book. The premise was strong and the synopsis had me hooked instantly. Even the first few pages had a hook like nothing I’ve ever read in a contemporary romance. It started off with a bang that had me flying through the pages at lightning speed. However, the more I continued to read through, the more I wasn’t enjoying it.

Both Sophie and Logan were funny characters who had me laughing at their antics

Cassia does it again and honestly, I think I laughed the hardest I ever have at the beginning of a book! The "SQUEAK" Hahahaaaaaaaaaa! Brilliant! You have to read this one!

Raise your Game is a smart, VERY sexy, funny, cute, fast paced and easy read!

Logan, his brother Everett and their father acquire businesses. Sometimes they take over but most times they sell the businesses off, letting the employees go. Jasper Pierce has decided to let one of his sons take the company over but which one? Log

If you are in the mood for a page turner, funny, romantic and very sexy story, this book is exactly what you need!

Logan is wealthy, sexy and very experienced with women. He also needs to prove that he's capable to run his father empire. To make it happen, he needs Sophie help so he makes her a very interesting proposition.
Their chemistry is quite evident and Sophie will have a hard time to not fall into temptation... but there are some major secrets between them that will make everything fall ap

What can I say, Cassia Leo has done it again!!

What starts off as a fake marriage, Logan and Sophie ultimately learn more about themselves and each other. Logan is a wealthy, sexy as all man that doesn’t do relationships but once he meets Sophie he starts to rethink his life. This book has it all, I was hysterical at times, tearing up at others and in complete awe by the very last word!! I absolutely love this story, Logan and Sophie!! 🖤🖤

Logan Pierce is the ultimate playboy. He is one of New York’s most ruthless businessmen and most notorious womanizers. He has thirty days to prove to his dad that he is not just a womanizer. He is capable of more. He just doesn’t realize it…yet.

I don’t do commitment. Some women refuse to believe me when I tell them this.

Sophie “The Celebrity Whisperer” Bishop is a staff writer at Close-Up magazine. Logan needs to save Close-Up from bankruptcy to “prove” himself and inherit his father’s company.

What starts off as a fake marriage turns into much more. Slick businessman Logan enlists the help of Sophie in order to win over shares of his father’s company. Sophie is a journalist for a failing magazine company and needs help nailing a story about troubled couples at a sex retreat. It just makes sense that they pretend to be married and help each other out, right? Sophie gets her story and Logan wins over his dad. It’s a win-win for both.

Raise Your Game is a witty, lighthearted, cute read. I

Raise Your Game was funny, sexy, and romantic all rolled together to make a fantastic romantic comedy.

Sophie and Logan come together in the book both out for their own best interests. Sophie agrees to a “fake” marriage with Logan in order to keep her job. Logan needs this marriage to help him win a competition against his brother to gain his father’s shares of his company. There is no end to the laughs and sexy times in this book.

This is, without a doubt, a fun, one sitting kind of a story.

Although I pretty much got what I expected from this tale, there were some genuinely funny moments.  Don't get me wrong - Logan is not my favourite male protagonist, but the author makes this work.

Nicely done.

As soon as I started reading chapter 1, I was immediately hooked into the storyline. When a book can grab my attention straight away, it’s a fairly good indication that it’s going to be a great read! Cassia as always never disappoints and I actually put ‘Raise your Game’ up near the top as one of my all-time favourites by this talented author.

Raise Your Game was another great 5 star read from Cassia Leo.

I was pulled in right away with a hot and steamy scene with Logan. I had a couple of LOL moments as well. Logan has quite the reputation with women. Logan and his brother are thrown into a competition by their father, Logan has to save Close-Up magazine. If he wins he would end up with the family business.

I absolutely love everything that Cassia Leo writes. Raise Your Game is a short, sweet, sexy standalone novel. This book had me hooked from the beginning to the very end.

Her new boss Logan is a wealthy businessman who needs to figure out a way to beat his brother in a competition to take over his father's company.

I thought this was an absolutely adorable book. There were moments where I burst out in laughter - mostly from the antics at the "couples retreat."
Sophie and Logan were fantastic characters, even though they didn't start out liking each other. Sophie even went as far as writing a very descriptive email to the new owner (unknowingly) on where he could shove himself and the job she had tried (accidentally) applying for. This, unfortunately, gave Logan (the interim editor in chief) to use that to h

I received an ARC of Raise your game by Cassia Leo and it was amazing! I loved everything about the book! The banter between the couple was so real, like they were a real couple. There are several books out there about pretend couples who fall in love but this one stands out. They go to a couples sex retreat to find intimacy again and have to pretend to be a real married couple with problems. That was no problem for these two who bickered like a married couple all the time! Unlike with other boo ...more

Raise Your Game is a steamy and entertaining workplace romance. Logan is locked in a battle with his brother for control of the family company as he takes control of a failing gossip rag. Logan is sexy, charming, and a total playboy. Sophie never imagined herself as a gossip columnist or gaining a reputation for getting the dirt on celebrities, but it's a job and it pays the bills. She's determined, savvy, and feisty. Sophie isn't at all pleased to find out that Logan is her new boss or that the ...more

Thank you Cassia Leo for providing me with a real laugh out loud moment within minutes of starting Raise Your Game! That closet scene was hilariously funny.

The story of Logan and Sophie was fun and the chemistry was undeniable, even though Sophie tried her hardest to in fact deny it. She has rules that she will not break no matter how hot she finds one Logan Pierce but her head is in competition with the body part below the belt...

Raise Your Game has it all. The story will grab you from the first page and take you on a fun ride filled with hilarity and spice. You have Logan, the womanizer who will stop at nothing to obtain what he wants, and Sophie, the journalist he convinces to be his pretend-wife at a couple’s retreat to obtain the story to save their magazine.

They both get more than they bargain for as that couple’s retreat serves them a dose of reality and they learn things about themselves and each other that change

Raise the Game was a feel good romance story for me. Cocky, Rich, Alpha male who uses sex to get what he wants in the business world. And then he collides with Sophie, his most vulnerable target at a Gossip magazine who he will use to win a family bet and gain his fathers shares of Angel Investment.
Logan is known to sleep his way to the top while his brother Everett is known for bribing his way to the top. In the mix of this competition Logan must keep his eye in the prize while getting to know

From page one this book caught me "squeak ". A rom com with so many laughs that your sides will ache.

Logan is the master of takeovers for businesses that are going under. He has a very unorthodox way of doing his deals. With a father who is fed up with the way he and his brother do things he gives them both 30 days to win the company. Can he do it??

Raise Your Game was a quick sexy read! I would give this book a 4 stars and highly recommend to others. The only thing I can say that would have been better about this book is if it was longer and maybe a little more details, but in all it was a great story.

Logan the womanizer finds himself in a position to earn his father's company and the only rules is he can't sleep his way to the win... Well that would be easy if the challenge he finds himself in wasn't a fake marriage to a Sophie a spitfire

This is a fantastic read, it sucked me in from the first chapter and I must admit I was totally intrigued by Logan and he just exuded arrogance from the start.

Sophie is just one of those characters that you can't help but like, funny, has a good outlook on life despite the obstacles in her way.

This chemistry between the two was off the charts and the numerous additions to the story really gave it depth and character.

This was such a feel good story with touches of heartbreak. I'm glad what started out as a competition was a win for the right ones. Sophie was down on her luck with lay offs all around her company or she may not have taken Logan up on his offer. When they pretend to be married to get a career saving scoop things become more complicated than either one planned.

Even with this I still liked Raise Your Game. It was a fast easy read. There was humor, sexual tension and drama to keep you turning the page. The banter between Logan and Sophia made me laugh.

This is a new stand alone by Cassia Leo. Sophie is a gossip columnist for a celebrity magazine that is on the decline. Logan works for his father and comes to Sophie's magazine to try to bring sales up, his brother and he are competing to get sales up for the respective magazines their father assigned them. Logan and Sophie both agree to a plan to get the biggest celebrity scoop for the magazine. There are laughs, lies and conniving family antics. I love this book, great laughs, some heart break ...more

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review. This book was definitely a short one but it was a good one. I always enjoy watching two characters fake a relationship and ending up falling in love. I will say I was little confused of Sophie’s reaction when she found out about Logan’s competition. I don’t see how that could upset her it’s not like she came there thinking the relationship was real. Other then that, I would recommend it!

I absolutely loved this book. The chemistry between Sophie and Logan was great. Dash of flirty, sprinkle of funny, then you turn up the heat.

Sophie and Logan give has much as they take. I think they have both met their match. This little journalist is a spit fire and witty too. Logan is a bad boy (but can he be good?) who enlists Sophie's help to gain control of his fathers company. And where do they go? To a married couples retreat. You don't want to miss out on this one.

This book was funny, cute, sweet, sexy and completely entertaining!
It had fun banter and a really likable heroine, Sophia.
A bit of drama and secrets.
A family competition, a fake marriage and a couples retreat... So enjoyable!
And the sexy and hot factor was definitely there.
Very hot hero in Logan. I love a guy with a bit of bad and a bit misunderstood.
Towards the end I was in love with Logan!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
