*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
2.5* rounded up as it was a freebie. Some proofreading would have helped. This is the most glaring error:

... my gaze locked on her striking blue eyes. (ch. 5)
She narrows her stunning hazel eyes at me (same ch. 5)

Otherwise, a quick, uncomplicated story with some steam and a feel-good ending.

5 1/2 Stars. It’s been awhile since I read a light hearted book that was as much fun as this one was.

The story centers around Sophie, a gossip columnist and Logan, a man working for his Dad’s investment firm that has acquired the gossip magazine. Circumstances force Sophie’s hand and she must work on a project with Logan. And so begins this enjoyable adventure. I absolutely loved the full development of these characters. You got a good sense of who they really are. Their directness and banter h

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!! 🖤🖤

Missed the feel good for me

The jacket blurb sold this to me, so good job! Sadly, that neat synopsis was more fun than the book itself. First gripe, Sophie has “ striking blue eyes” on page 76 but on Page 78 they are “stunning hazel eyes”. Come on, sort this out!
Logan was one dimensional for me, I didn’t like him or his Magnum. Sophie is likeable but not convincing enough.
Left me disappointed.

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. You will love to see the transformation in Logan and Sophie’s rel

What a fun lighthearted read, with added drama hat wasn’t over the top.
I loved all the characters, especially Sophie. She’s your lovable girl next door and I was glad to see her get her HEA. Logan was smooth and with Soph on his team, he became totally swoon worthy.
If you want a fun, sometimes funny and a tad sexy, this is the book for you.

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.  

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

ehh just ok...Honestly, the first chapter made me almost drop the book completely. I didn't like Logan's character. He was a jerk. He slightly redeemed himself throughout the rest of the book. The book was super quick, almost too rushed. But, the scenes in Hawaii were creative and hilarious. And the epilogue was really good. ...more

Raise your game/c. Leo

I enjoyed the story of loga n and sophie, one a wealthy playboy who buy out companies about to bankrupt and the girl who is a journalist that writes for gossip magazine. Both are on a mission to save the company she works for and he owns to prove to his father he has what it takes and in competition with his brother. If you like humorist story with a twist you will like this one.

Team Ka'pipi! OK, this was quick and entertaining. Did I absolutely love it? Not really, but I for sure didn't dislike it. It was just not one of my favorite Cassia Leo books. I just didn't connect with Logan and Sophie like I usually do with her characters. I still liked them, they just didn't intrigue me. Raise Your Game has a pretty standard storyline, moves quickly, and doesn't really throw any curveballs at the reader. It's pretty much what you'd expect. ...more

Sweet and sexy

I really enjoyed this fun little romp. The storyline was quirky and the characters we're fun. Logan is sexy and conceited with the worst reputation in New York. He chooses Sophie to be his partner in an elaborate ruse, with the caveat she will get a new position and big raise.

The two end up deep in lies and deep in lust. How they work together to create a relationship and come out winners makes for a quick and enjoyable read.

Sophie is the "celebrity whisperer" and writes about them for a gossip rag - not what she envisioned herself doing in college. When she gets conned into pretending to be married to the new head of her magazine, Logan Pierce, a man known for getting whatever he wants through his sexual prowess. Not exactly a match made in heaven - at first. ...more

This was an interesting story. Sophie is on the verge of loosing her job. But in a drunken girls night she emails her boss and next thing you know she is pretending to be his wife. They are attending a couples retreat with the hopes of getting the scoop on a celebrity couple. But nothing is as it seems and it blows up. But Logan isn’t giving up and he will do anything for the love of his life.

Cute story

I chose "Raise Your Game" from a giveaway. The review quote said it was a hilarious, laugh out loud romcom.
I have to be honest, I never laughed. It's not funny, but it is a cute feel good story.
Happy Reading:-)

What would you do to win?

A cute, quick, funny read. Logan and Sophie do the whole fake marriage thing to get a scoop. The way the play each other as well as those around them make for a good story.

That old saying what's done in the dark will always come to the light is so true. Sometimes there is a second chance and others just say NO!!! Siblings will always compete with other whether openly or in the dark.

Raise Your Game

Nice quick read. Interesting premise and a lot of chemistry between the H and the h. However, Logan changed his ways very quickly and issues w his brother and sister in law were left unresolved.

Just ok

2.5 stars
It was hard for me to stay invested in this book because I REALLY did not like the main characters. Sophie and Logan were manipulative and so many of the moves they made were self-serving and did not endear them to me at all.

Kept my attention

Kind of a silly book. The way they interact was amusing. They were a different couple that’s for sure. I liked the ending but hate how far in the future we were taken. Still a great ending though.
