Not a Game Reviews

Prism Book Alliance

I enjoyed Not a Game and highly recommend it. With its distinctly different characters, strong scenes of physical and emotional connection, and sweet HEA, it is a lovely m/m romance with excellent promise for a new series.

Jaymie: From the stories of friendships that develop into love to enemies who find they fit perfectly with one another, destined mates and second chance love, I always feel good after reading one of Cardeno C's books....f you want to read a story with just a tad bit of angst and a whole lot of sweet, great down to earth characters, romance and fun, Not A Game is a great choice. Heather: I seriously loved this book, I would bet I had a smile through most of this book. ...his is a book that I will reread. It's sweet, loving, funny and made my heart sigh.

 I’m a big fan of Cardeno C. I always know I’m going to be entertained by the characters, the setting and the plot. I always laugh, cry, get a little hot and bothered and know there won’t be much angst....I love this couple. They are sweet, funny, sexy and perfect for each other. I love the old jokes and the humor! And I love Oliver’s friend Tamra. She cracks me up!

These two establish a strong physical connection from the very beginning. Their intimate scenes are erotic, detailed, and emotional. Not only do they connect on a physical level, but their dialogue is frank and direct as they get to know each other and their comfort levels rise, particularly Ollie’s. They work well together in all aspects, and I especially enjoyed watching Ollie come out of his shell and revel in his sexuality with abandon.

Open Sky Book Reviews

The writing is excellent as always. I couldn’t put this down and in fact started reading it again as soon as I’d finished. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a sweet, somewhat unique, low-angst romance. It’s funny, terribly sweet and somewhat thought provoking.
