Peek Inside The Seduction Game

Millionaire bad boy, Will Thornton, is determined to buy computer-geek Kate Kelly’s building out from under her. He plays the game better than anybody and charming is his middle name. Problem is, the snarky, geeky, computer-wiz is impossibly cute and a match for him in every way. Kate is prepared to wait Will out, but It'll take every ounce of her self-control to win this game. Can two such radically different people come out winners in the game of seduction?

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....

Romances with millionaires are cliched but after a recommendation, I thought I’d give this novel a chance, especially since it also features a bespectacled geek girl :O)

The Seduction Game is a sweet, fun, and kooky read! I readily enjoyed reading about Will and Kate! I admit, I started reading about Kate when I read Game of Chance about her BFF Meg.

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, T ...more

This started out slow--I wasn't too sure about it for the first quarter or so.

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 heck! ...more

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 wi ...more

About the author

Emma Shortt

As a kid Emma wanted to be an astronaut, or maybe Captain Janeway. Because she didn't really think her career choices through very well she ended up in an everyday geek job, crunching numbers and sighing over syntax. It seemed a long way from the stars and in an effort to escape Emma decided to get serious about her other passion. Writing. Several years later and Emma has yet to walk on the moon or sit in the Captain's chair, but she is still writing. She scribbles stories in all sorts of genres, contemporary, paranormal, post-apocalyptic, historical, sci-fi...if she hasn't tried it yet she will before long. The only common theme is the romance. A hopeless romantic everything Emma writes has a love story in there somewhere.
