Book Review: Game On by Nicola Marsh
One of the new Women of W.A.R. series about the women of the Australian Rules football competition, Game On follows Angie Bryant, the daughter of a legendary soccer player determined to forge her own path. Gifted with superior sporting genes, Angie still has to prove herself as the star player for the Melbourne Muses - and to Jaxon Flint, the biggest sports management agent in the business - and also the guy with whom she had a fantastically sexy one-night stand without knowing his real identity.
There are a couple of hilarious moments when Angie finally figures out her mistake, but the relationship quickly turns serious, and not in a good way. Jaxon has a lot of baggage and Angie needs to focus on her career. Finding their way to a happily ever after looks impossible for a lot of the story.
Game On is only about half the length (at 79 pages) of the other two books in this series, and it felt really rushed to me. Though I enjoyed the story, there was a lot covered in a short time, and a couple of big time skips in the book I felt could have been fleshed out more. I liked it, but I was left wanting more and feeling vaguely short-changed. Four stars.
