!!Blog Tour!! Review of The Hearts Game (Kelly Brothers, 4) by Crista McHugh

The bit on the back…

What happens at Comic-Con, stays at Comic-Con…

Robotics engineer Jenny Nguyen has given up on finding Mr. Right. So when her brother and his husband approach her to act as surrogate for their child, she sees it as her only chance to have a child and accepts. One week after she initiates the process, however, she meets a man who gets her heart pumping for all the right reasons and gives into the temptation. When the test turns positive, she’s believes she can’t handle both the pregnancy and dating, but she underestimates how persistent Daniel Kelly can be.

When surgeon and gamer-geek Dan meets a pretty woman dressed as a Sailor Scout at Comic-Con, a roll of his lucky twenty-sided die tells him he should take a gamble on her. One night of passion leaves him longing for more, but Jenny’s refusal to return his calls afterward leaves him wondering if the attraction was one-sided. An accidental discovery of her pregnancy has him convinced the baby is his, and he’ll stop at nothing to win her heart.

Firstly thank you to Crista and Lisa for allowing me to take part in the blog tour for the 4th book in Crista’s Kelly Brothers series. I’ve been fortunate enough to be part of the blog tours for the first three in the series and you can check those reviews out by clicking on the links below!

This instalment is all about engineer and gamer Jenny and Dr Daniel Kelly, the 4th Kelly brother. They meet at Comic-Con and after getting together they decide on keeping what happened was a one-time thing. That is until Dan turns up in Jenny’s life coincidentally proving it’s not such a small world after all!

I was really looking forward to the next book in the series and I can confirm that all of the same things I loved about the first three are in this one too!

The first thing I’ve enjoyed about this series is Crista’s writing. I like how it draws you into the story and makes you feel like you’re hooked on the character’s story. I have enjoyed that each of them have been dual POV and that is the same here. I liked getting to know the story from both narrators Jenny and Dan as I think it allows you to get to know the story from both angles quite well.

The story is quite different to the first three as both Jenny and Dan are gamers and some of that went right over my head because it’s not something that I’m overly interested in so it’s not something I know much about. It didn’t detract from the story though in the slightest as I could still imagine what was going on and the bare bones of the book, Crista’s ability to tell a story, really held it all together.

I’ve loved each of the brothers so far and Dan has the same kind of traits in his personality as his brothers before him, which may be even more emphasised by the touching and emotional story line. He’s compassionate and kind and he is everything that Jenny needs to have in her life.

I’m looking forward to the next in the series already!
