Game of Love
Written by Melissa Foster

Finding ones’ way in life is a chore. But knowing who you are can be a tougher challenge without proper feedback from a loving family and friends.
In their teenage years, Dex and Ellie were an item but not lovers in the biblical way. They were friends.
Her presence in his life gave him strength. However, Ellie had strengths of another kind but her home environment weakened them and led her to the Remington’s home, especially to Dex’s room.
Her home environment led to mental road blocks that affected the way Ellie communicated her feelings. Dex has no doubt of his abilities or who he is, because he was nurtured by his family and his best friend, unbeknown to her, Ellie.
Because of reasons not told to Dex, Ellie was taken out of his life. She is now on his door step again, four years after a prior short encounter. She still has emotional baggage – insecurities as to who she is – strengths and weaknesses.
Dex’s caring and loving pushes Ellie in the right direction, but it is a women friend of his that clearly helps Ellie see some light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s a gripping story from the beginning to end, that will have you crying, and laughing at times. Traumatic events bring us to the conclusion.
Ms. Foster’s style of characterization leaves no doubt as to who loves who; and the steam in the relationship goes up and down, keeping the reader guessing if the joining of Dex and Ellie will ever be completed.
Game of Love, The Remingtons, Book One; Love in Bloom Series stands alone. However, it may be interesting to see who will fall in love in the next book of this series.
