Fair Game
By Taylor Lunsford
Releasing April 23rd, 2018
Entangled Publishing

In her designer shoes and power suits, Vivien Monroe couldn’t be more out of place in the video game company she inherited from her eccentric father. Not only does she have to sort out her father’s last request and deal with a younger sister she barely knows, she has to go toe-to-toe with her father’s protégé—a man who makes her think about the last thing she should be thinking about right now.

With his thick-framed glasses and graphic tees, Liam Bennett is the exact opposite of what she needs right now. His relaxed, out-of-the-box attitude reminds her too much of her father’s more exasperating quirks, but his dedication and quiet stubbornness begin to drive her crazy in a completely different way.
All Vivien wants is to get back to her life in New York, but someone is stealing the company’s best game ideas, and an FBI agent is sniffing around. She’ll save her father’s legacy for her sister and then she’s out of there—if she can leave Liam behind.

In Fair Game by Taylor Lunsford, Vivien Monroe can't believe she's inherited her father's company, not when they were estranged for years. Yet, she's determined to do what's right for the company and the sister she barely knows. Luckily, she's got an ally in her father's protégé since the company is facing trouble with someone stealing the company's gaming ideas, which has drawn the attention of an FBI agent determined to find the culprit. Will Vivien be able to save her family's legacy, have a better relationship with her sister and then leave or will she realize that being back in Texas is the best thing that's happened to her in a long time?

This was such an interesting and riveting read, of which I loved it from the very beginning, as the heroine can't believe she's in the situation she's in since she didn't have a good relationship with her father and finds it hard to understand why he made the decision he did. Will she be able do turns things around for the company and make sure the FBI finds what they need to take down whoever is sabotaging the company? Will Vivien stay and get to know her sister better or will she return to her old life? However, it was from the moment the hero and heroine meet that had me reading quickly, determined to discover whether the heroine will give Liam a chance since he knows a lot about the company and could be a very good ally.

As for the dialogue, it was intense due to the main characters back stories, what the heroine faces with the trouble someone is determined to cause and I could understand why the heroine feels the way she does about being back home. Her relationship with her father was strained. Why did her father treat her the way he did? Why was it really hard for her father to be around her? Moreover, both the main characters were fantastic and I loved how determined the hero was to help the heroine, especially because not only does the company need her but so does Vivien's sister who she doesn't have a very close relationship. Will she ever have a close relationship with her sister? 

With the heroine, she's resilient, courageous, hard-working and I liked that she was willing to do everything she can to make sure everything is running smoothly with the company before she makes any big decisions. I also liked that she gave the hero a chance, even though it's not easy for her to trust after everything she went through with her last relationship. While the hero, he's a good guy in the way he's determined to make the heroine see how good she is for the company. He can be persuasive and isn't afraid to push Vivien when he thinks she needs it. Yet, what I liked most of all about the hero is how supportive he was of not only the heroine but also her sister who definitely needs his support just as much as Vivien. 

Overall, Ms. Lunsford has delivered a very good read in this book where emotions run high at times; the chemistry between Vivien and Liam was strong; the romance was deliciously hot with the hero determined to show the heroine how much he wants her; and the ending had me liking how brave the heroine was in doing everything she could to make things right with everyone she's let down, especially Liam and her sister. How could she live with herself if she didn't do everything she could to save the company from someone determined to use it for their own personal gain? Will the FBI get their man with Vivien's help? However, it was how things turned out for the hero and heroine that had me cheering because they're good together and nothing should keep them apart. I would recommend Fair Game by Taylor Lunsford, if you enjoy boss-employee romances, the friends to lovers trope, or books by authors Tonya Burrows, Cathy Skendrovich, Allison B. Hanson and Claudia Shelton.
