TBR Tuesday #68 ~ Hooked on the Game (Sterling Shore #1) by C.M. Owens

My good friend Sharrice from Reese's Reviews: My Addiction to Fiction came up with the idea of 'TBR Tuesday'

If you want to join in the fun, then just do the following:
From your book shelf or your e-reader, pick a book that you own that is still on your TBR list. Post it however you want to, then leave a link below so others can see what's waiting to be read.

This week for me its:

Hooked on the Game
(Sterling Shore #1)

C.M. Owens

Everyone has secrets that define them, a past that has shaped them, and a game they play - whether they know it or not. 

Despite the fact they live next door to each other, Kade and Raya have never made an effort to speak, until a wild party, four frat boys, and... a bulldozer. 

Sterling Shore was supposed to be a new start for eighteen-year-old Raya Capperton. Everything was working out perfectly until her two roommates were expelled for a prank, leaving Raya with the house she couldn't afford on her own. Fate intervenes before she has the chance to find a new home, but she struggles to decide if it's divine luck or the devil's cruel sense of humor. 

Twenty-one-year-old Kade Colton has his life planned out, and everything he does is an elaborate game to aid him with his future endeavors. Coming from money has made Kade's life easy, but he wants to build his own name - his own future. The thing he doesn't realize... when you only put forth superficial effort, you only acquire superficial friends. 

Raya is torn between being amused or disturbed by Kade and his philosophy, but the drive behind his determination isn't what Raya expected. Little by little, her hatred fades and is replaced by emotions she never would have believed she could have for the rich jerk she desperately doesn't want to care about. Too bad you can't force yourself not to care. 

The problem is... Kade's shiny name can't be tarnished, and Raya has a jaded tie she can't cut loose. Nothing about them can work, nothing about them makes sense, but nothing can seem to stop them from trying. 

*Not suitable for anyone under the age of eighteen 

** No cliffhanger 
**New Adult Contemporary Romance 
**Descriptive sex 


Leave a comment and tell me what's waiting on your TBR pile.


  1. Sounds good, Marilyn. I can see why you put it on your shelf. :) I hope you get the time to read it soon. I have so many books on my shelf to choose from... *hehe* Um, I still have And Falling, Fly by Skyler White on my shelf. I picked it up several years ago at Powell's Bookstore when my hubs and I were on a trip to Portland. I have no idea why I haven't read it yet. :/

  2. Interesting cover... sounds like one I'd enjoy to Marilyn! I hope you enjoy it and pick us some great teasers!
