Pleasure Games

Juno Ashmore is a glassblower who is in desperate need of money. Her friend will convince her to enter in a contest to win the heart of a billionaire. With her being on the show she will automatically get fifty thousand dollars. Juno will be excited for the show but will want to back out when she meets the bachelor.

Heathcliff Forester had arranged an opportunity to get the woman he had loved back in his life. He will do all that he can to get Juno to understand he had never stopped loving her.

Pleasure Games is a novella within the series Games by Jessica Clare. I liked this novella but I was wondering if I wouldn’t. This was a version of the Bachelor if you could not guess. So, Heathcliff was doing all he could to get Juno back and he rigged the dating show to make sure that she would come to him. I didn’t like the lying but Heathcliff was doing it because he truly loved her, so I pretty much forgave him for the lying to Juno. Heathcliff was very suave but I liked to see a vulnerability when he was scared of losing Juno. Now Juno’s character was a girl who didn’t like handouts and had a problem with running away when she got scared. I wanted to laugh at Juno’s emotions at times because it felt real. She was fighting her attraction and claimed that she didn’t want Heathcliff but every time he talked to another woman she got jealous.

I was happy with the ending as Jessica Clare wraps up everything in a predictable way but nevertheless I wanted that ending.

I am reading Partner Games next which will complete the Games series.
