In the game of love, the rules are meant to be broken...
When millionaire bad boy Will Thornton tries to buy computer-geek Kate Kelly’s building out from under her, she refuses to sell. Will might be uber rich, but she won’t be bullied. Trouble is, she doesn’t expect Will to look like one of her fantasy heroes, or to make her heart beat way too fast. Fine. She can control herself long enough to wait him out. Hopefully.
There may be millions of dollars on the line, but Will is confident he can make Kate sell. 'Charming' is his middle name, and he plays the game better than anybody. Problem is, the snarky little computer-wiz is nothing like he imagined. She's impossibly cute...and a match for him in every way. It’s game on. But in a seductive battle of the sexes, only one can come out on top....
"The more I read, the more I got into the plot and fell in love with the characters. This is a must-read! :)" ~ author of Kidnapping the Brazilian Tycoon, Carmen Falcone
If ever there was proof that geek is chic, The Seduction Game is that. My not so inner geek was in heaven with this complete lose-yourself-in-the-romance fabulousness. I loved everything about it.
Kate Kelly is a geek. A completely loveable perfect geek with a stubborn streak who owns a computer... ...more

I’ll admit I love a sexy alpha hero; there’s something about all those three types rolled into to one man that drives me a little bit crazy but more than that I love, love when the heroine in a... ...more

Emma Shortt sure knows how to entertain a lady! She never fails to disappoint me and I was yet again pleased and giddy to read one of her books. This girl can write. From erotic romances like... ...more

I received a copy of The Seduction Game in exchange for my review.
Will Thornton is a property developer who wants to turn the area around Kate Kelly's computer shop, K.I.T, into a shiny new development called the Risings. But Will has... ...more
Okay, I need to say this first, and foremost, Will Thornton is NOT a bad boy! I don't know why the moniker was given to him at all throughout this book. Okay, I get that his sister calls in a bad boy, but it's more sibling ribbing than anything else.
Okay, so now that I got that out of the way,... ...more

I’m nerding out after this book as I’m excited over this book because of two things .This book appeals to my inner geek and the heroine is a geek and a serious fangirl. Thrown in the hero who is a sexy alpha male that is willing to admit when he is wrong an... ...more
Kate is a computer whiz with her own store. But that store is at risk from the millionaire Will Thornton. He wants to knock the store down because it sits in the middle of his new development. Kate is determined to play the waiting game and hope he just goes away. Will has other plans. He thinks... ...more
This started out slow--I wasn't too sure about it for the first quarter or so. Kate and Meg had a tendency to talk like they were still in college quite a bit in the beginning, which seemed off considering Kate was supposed to be a fairly successful business owner--"geek" doesn't necessarily tran... ...more
Will really wants Kate's building. Kate doesn't want to give it to him. Creepy brother in law working for Will tries to intimidate her into selling and goes a bit psycho in the process. Thinking that Will had put him up to it, Kate thinks of Will as the "enemy" so that by the time they actually d... ...more
I loved this story and it's characters!! This is a marvelous story of two people who despite their differences learn that different doesn't mean not! Geeky Kate, Super Hot Alpha Will and Meg (who deserves a story of her own)! I loved Will's tenacity with Kate, Will recognizes his desire for Kate... ...more
This has become one of my faviourite books! An enjoyable and a quick read!! It started off slow and as one of your typical books where girl meets billionnaire and falls in love. A few chapters in and I could not put the book down -the characters become personal and relatable (especially the 'geek... ...more
3.5 - 4 stars
I was drawn to The Seduction Game because of the author. I read Emma Shortt’s Waking Up Dead and loved it. Zombies, running for your life, and falling in love – what a combo! It usually always works for me. Then I saw that she wrote a contemporary romance, and I thought – what the he... ...more
ARC given by netgalley for an honest review
I do have a collection of books from this author, and so glad to have the ARC of a new book. Apart from the usual genre (a bit in erotic side) it is nice to read a slow build-up romance from the author.
The book is a about Kate, an honest small shop owner... ...more
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVED Kate. She made this book for me. I loved everything about her little geeky self. I love how she loved Star Trek over Star Wars because I do too! I love that she loves Firefly because I do too! I loved her t-shirts and how she blushed. I could go on and on...Ok, I seriously hav... ...more
I enjoyed this book. It’s a quick light read. It is well written and flows smoothly. Will and Kate have excellent chemistry and I loved their interactions. Kate is a computer geek whose business is threatened by Will’s plans to develop the neighborhood. Will just wants Kate to sell like he was to... ...more
Kate Kelly is stubborn. She won't give into the demands or the sexual seduction of Will Thorton, the billionaire developer. Kate may be a geek but she has her principles and selling her property goes against them, but she is very attracted to this determined man. Where do they go from here? Emma... ...more
Geek girl meets billionaire... This fun romance that captures the popularity of geek culture, but the twist that the geek is the girl and the guy is the "normal"one. Kate owns and runs a computer repair business from her home and Will wants to buy the property so his company can move forward with... ...more
Very well written and edited. This is a standalone book.
This is the first book I've read by this author, and I really enjoyed it. All the female characters were interesting, had strong points-of-view, and were women I'd want to spend time with in real life. The geeky technology/gamer bits were re... ...more
Geek meets alpha, hot, sexy millionaire bad boy.
I'm a geek of sorts and this put me on a happy high. Love for the geeks of the world can be seen in black and white and in print. Kate is a sexy geek that doesn't know her own appeal to the opposite sex until him. But is his delight in her or the fa... ...more
Wow. I never read books with geeky heroines, so this was a nice change -- even though I had to Google some references, LOL. Kate was likable from the beginning, I totally get why she wanted to preserve the building and her store; yet there was that veneer of vulnerability whenever Will was around... ...more
This was such a sweet cute story! I loved how hard Will fell for Kate! Kate was amazing character. She was strong, outspoken, and nerdy! Loved her and could so totally relate and see myself in her character. I am so totally into nerds, especially growing up one. She was a riot, loved the minicom... ...more
When Will tries to buy Kate’s store he’s basically met with a “Resistance is Futile” kind of attitude. In other words “NO”. He then tries to get to know her despite her reluctance to get to know him. It had a lot of wit, charm and they made a good couple despite the fact he’s a mega billionaire a... ...more
I enjoued The Seduction Game. There's something to be said for the shy, geeky girl that can win the heart of a player billionaire!
My favorite quote "He woke up thinking about her, went to bed thinking about her, and all day she was in the background of his thoughts. Just sort of there. An awaren... ...more
