Game Point by M.J. O'Shea

Game, set… match made in heaven.

Spoiled socialite Quinn Valenzuela has no interest in sports or his family’s huge sporting goods empire, Sparta Athletics. So when Quinn learns his grandfather has died and he’s in control of the corporation, no one is more surprised than Quinn himself.

Dedicated COO Porter Davis has little time and less patience for brats like Quinn who have never done a day’s work, but circumstances leave him with little choice. Quinn claims he’s ready to leave partying behind and grow up, but it’ll take more than words to earn Porter’s respect. As it turns out, they can work—and play—together after all. A friends with benefits arrangement makes sense for the two busy men, but are they too different for it to ever develop into more? Not if Quinn can convince Porter he has his head in the game.

What happens to trust fund club kids when they finally grow up? When Quinn’s grandfather dies suddenly, he flies from Ibiza to Seattle to become the CEO of his family’s sportswear empire. Porter, the company’s hardworking COO, has little time for the spoiled rich kid playing businessman – but he does find the younger man irritatingly attractive.

The chemistry between Porter and Quinn is electric. I loved the initial animosity. I loved their hard won friendship and the bromance that becomes more than just a ‘friends with benefits’ arrangement without them noticing. Both of these men are wonderful. Quinn has more substance than we initially expect, and Porter isn’t as cold and uptight as he first appears. I really love the partnership that develops between these two.

This is a classic romance. The sex is skimmed over. They have close relationships with their families and lead a relatively traditional lifestyle. They are both affluent and Quinn’s family is extremely wealthy – but I liked the lack of conspicuous consumption. The Seattle setting is understated, and Quinn and Porter don’t really do bling.

Ultimately, this is a satisfying, feel-good read. The characters are easy to like and the story is free from unnecessary angst. It is a simple, fun, and entertaining read.

M.J. O’SHEA has never met a music festival, paintbrush, or flower crown she can stay away from. She loves rainstorms and a perfect cup of tea, beach days, music, bright colors, and more than anything a cozy evening with a really great book.

She is from the Pacific Northwest. While she lives there still and loves it, M.J. has the heart of a wanderer. So she puts all her dreams of far-off places and extraordinary people in her books.

Except for every once in a while when she does what all travelers have to do on occasion… come home.
