GR's Summary:

He controls the game, but she’s rewriting all the rules… 

Marley Lake is no stranger to awkwardness, but getting caught watching a dirty GIF by the company’s hot new IT guy exceeds even her standards. That is, until she realizes he's as turned on by it as she is. But with a big promotion on the line, she refuses to let her current dry spell be her downfall. Maybe. 

Austin Rivers has no business lusting after the irresistible editor of Gamers Magazine. He's a secret partner in the business—and technically Marley’s boss. One look at that GIF, though, and he’s ready to install a whole lot more than just software…as long as she never finds out who he really is. 

But reality’s not as virtual as it seems, and when Austin’s identity jeopardizes Marley’s promotion, he has to change his game or risk losing the only woman with the cheat code to his heart.

My Thoughts:

What a blast!  Ms. Erickson takes her readers on quite a sexy, entertaining, daring, delectable, and wild ride!  I loved Changing His Game!  I've read all of Ms. Erickson's books, and no matter what she writes, she never fails to amaze me!  

In Changing His Game, we get Marley Lake and Austin Rivers story.  Marly is a dedicated and ambitious career woman.  All of her time has been spent diligently working as the head of a copy editing team at Gamers, a quarterly magazine.  She is lonely, and lacks romance in her life.  She has fantasies of a man dominating her, and being completely in control sexually.  This is due to the fact that she has a career that brings about a lot of stress, and where she always has to be in control.

Austin Rivers is a wealthy man.  He is highly intelligent, and earned his success at a young age after he developed a widely popular video game.  He is also a silent partner with his best friend Grant at the Gamers Magazine.  Unfortunately, many people have tried to steal and take advantage of his wealth, even family members.  So he keeps to himself, is introverted, and has a brooding personality.  The only people that he interacts with on a regular basis are his best friend Grant, and Grant's fourteen year old daughter, Sydney.

One day while Marley is working on a project for work, her computer freezes.  She calls IT, and when the technician arrives, it is Austin.  Marley doesn't know that Austin is technically her boss, and thinks he is part of the IT team.  Marley and Austin share  a palpable attraction.  When Austin unfreezes Marley's computer, he see's a naughty GIF of a man dominating a woman sexually.  Marley is embarrassed, because she forgot all about the window to her Tumblr account that she left open.  As the two of them look at this GIF, they start imagining the other as part of their sexual fantasies.  This event is the catalyst for what eventually leads to a sizzling hot love affair between Marley and Austin.  However, Austin is in quite the predicament due to his ownership in Gamers.  

Changing His Game was raw, intense, and passionate!  What a great story!  I loved Marley and Austin.  Marley was intelligent, ambitious, hard working, dedicated, and independent.  Austin was very caring (under his broody exterior,) sexy, exciting, powerful, and dreamy!  These two together were combustible!  I loved the sexual anticipation in the story, and how Marley and Austin complimented each other perfectly.  Austin had the need to control, and Marley had the need to be controlled!  They were perfect together! Whew!  What I loved even more was that their sexual relationship was a stepping stone for  both of them to have a deeper emotional connection and intimacy!  What a wonderful reading escape!

My Rating:

I highly recommend, Changing His Game, by Megan Erickson!  This story flew by!  It was so entertaining, sexy, fun, and took me on a wonderful sexual adventure!  I give Changing His Game, 4 So Sexy, Savage Desires, Erotic, Dominating Fantasy Filled Stars!  Great job Ms. Erickson!

About Megan Erickson:

Megan Erickson grew up in a family that averages 5’5” on a good day and started writing to create characters who could reach the top kitchen shelf. 

She’s got a couple of tattoos, has a thing for gladiators and has been called a crazy cat lady. After working as a journalist for years, she decided she liked creating her own endings better and switched back to fiction. 

She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kids and two cats. And no, she still can’t reach the stupid top shelf.
