REVIEW: The Name of the Game by Jennifer Dawson

the name of the gamesassysynopsis4

Some people follow the rules. . .

A professor of forensic anthropology, James Donovan is the reasonable sibling among the passionate, impulsive Donovans. But there’s nothing reasonable about his reaction to baker Gracie Roberts. She’s all wild curls and mouth-watering curves, as deliciously tempting as the sugary treats she’s famous for–and twice as irritating. But before long, James decides that getting a taste of her is one indulgence he can’t pass up. . .

Some people play to win. . .

Independent, smart, and sexy, Gracie’s year-long dry spell has her itching for a man. Responsible, health-obsessed James? Not in a million years! She needs a guy who knows how to let loose! But when James sets out to show her just how satisfying a disciplined man can be when pleasure is at stake, she learns just how sweet–and spicy–he really is.

Have James and Gracie found the recipe for love

Jennifer Dawson(All information obtained from the authors website)

Jennifer Dawson grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from DePaul University with a degree in psychology. She met her husband at the public library while they were studying. To this day she still maintains she was NOT checking him out. Now, over twenty years later they’re married living in a suburb right outside of Chicago with two awesome kids and a crazy dog.

Despite going through a light FM, poem writing phase in high school, Jennifer never grew up wanting to be a writer (she had more practical aspirations of being an international super spy). Then one day, suffering from boredom and disgruntled with a book she’d been reading, she decided to put pen to paper. The rest, as they say, is history.

These days Jennifer can be found sitting behind her computer writing her next novel, chasing after her kids, keeping an ever watchful eye on her ever growing to-do list, and NOT checking out her husband.



As always I want to first thank NetGalley and Kensington Books for providing us with a copy of this book so that I would bring you this review.

I know Im way late in writing a review for the fantastic book as it came out back in September. But I hope to make up for it by telling you how much I enjoyed this story. The sexual tension between these two from the beginning is enough to scorch your fingers. I loved how it proved not everything is as seems, though James seems like that nerdy professor, he is anything but. He is actually very sexy and lots of fun. Something that Gracie learns quickly when she finally starts to realize how she feels about him. This book has your fun and sexy times as well as your funny and silly moments. It also made me smile to know that these two characters thought it was just going to be a matter of getting it out of their systems and they would be fine… little did they know they were never going to get over it so easily.

I give this book 5 studious kisses… 

Happy Reading… Adri
