First Thought when Finished: Game On by Gabra Zackman was fun sexy romp but the story could have been more flushed out.
Overall Thoughts: I really enjoyed Game On (my stepmom enjoyed it even more) but it must be said that at times it relied a little to much on sass instead of strength of story. I wanted a little bit more from the story–more background, character building, and mystery. I liked what was there though: pacing, sass, fun, and excitement. This story was short which means I suffered from what I always do with short stories: the want of more. I will read more if this turns into a series though because I loved the characters. They were quirky, sexy, and at times a bit over a top in a totally fun way (think Stephanie Plum but with real badass skills). If you are looking for something sexy, fun, and exciting I don’t think you will be disappointed in Game On!

The narration was out of this park! Seriously it was just downright fun and brought the characters too life. You can tell they had fun with the subject matter because they let the sass fly! Totally recommend this on audio if you pick it up. You will thank me later!
