Blog Tour & Giveaway: Monica Murphy's "Fair Game." (The Rules #1)".

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour & Giveaway  for Monica Murphy's "Fair Game."


Bad enough Jade Frost’s boyfriend drags her to a boring poker game. Even worse that he actually threw her into the betting pot during an intense round…and lost. Talk about the perfect excuse for Jade to make him her ex-boyfriend.

Now she supposedly belongs to the ultra rich, extremely gorgeous Shep Prescott. He could have anything he wants yet he seems to be in hot pursuit of her. No matter how rude, how snarky, how impossible she acts, it doesn’t stop him. More like her horrible behavior seems to make him want her more.

When she finds herself starting to fall for him, Jade’s confused. There’s more to Shep than the carefree rich charmer he portrays. No way could he want a serious relationship with her…or could he?


I have fallen crazy in love with this book. As soon as I began reading, I knew that it was going to be good and I was right. By the time I had hit the twenty percent mark I was head over heels for Shep and Jade and hooked by their story. 

Guys have ignored me pretty much my entire life and I was used to it, 
thank you very much. The first gorgeous one who comes along has for some reason 
set his sights on me and now he won't leave me alone. I should be thrilled.

Shep was a gorgeous, slightly cocky and extremely rich collage boy. Spending most of his time enjoying the usual activities that most wealthy college kids do, gambling, drinking, girls and of course, partying hard. Life appeared to be a blast for Shep Prescott and then Jade walked into his life and things got even better.

She's a challange. No girl is ever a challenge for me. Ever.

Jade was a cute, loveable collage girl who had little confidence in her appearance so when Shep entered her life and began to pursue her she just couldn't understand why. One thing she was certain of was that she refused be another notch on Shep's bedpost. He had a reputation and she was not gonna give in to his advances, no way! However Shep was relentless. Jade had piqued his interest and was determined to know more. Let the fight commence! lol. 

"I wish you would just leave this alone." 
"Maybe I don't want to." 
"Maybe I want to see you even more. Maybe you're all I think I think about." 

Jade and Shep made one hell of an exciting couple. They shared so much chemistry that I could feel it pouring out of the pages. Their connection was impossible to ignore. Watching their relationship bloom was so addictive, I couldn't wait to see what happened next between them but at the same time I was a little afraid to keep reading, afraid that something would go horribly wrong between the couple. I loved everything about them and I did not want to see them heartbroken. 

He shouldn't affect me this way. I shouldn't care. He shouldn't matter. 
But somehow, someway. he does. He's wormed his way into my brain 
and I can't stop thinking about him.

As I have already said many times in this review, I loved this book a lot! It was one of those stories that made my heart beat faster, where I could practically feel my heart beating out of my chest. It was that good. The characters were so easy to fall in love with. Shep was so yummy. I adored every single thing about that boy. He treated Jade with so much love and tenderness, it was clear that he had fallen hard for her. Lucky girl! I was so happy that Jade had found a man like Shep to care for her. She was just so sweet and lovely and deserved to be loved and cherished in the way that came so naturally to Shep.

She blew my mind. Rocked my world. Made me smile. Made me laugh. 
Made me want something I never considered possible.

I was reading this book every spare minute that I had and I quickly devoured most of the book until suddenly, to my horror, I only had two hours of reading left. I was enjoying this story so much that I did not want it to end so I tried to savour the remaining time but it was impossible. You know when you are on a diet and you have your favourite bar of chocolate, you are determined to make it last as long as possible. Only eating one square at first but before you know it, the whole bar is gone? Well that's how I was with this book. Once I had reached the final page, I was gutted that it had ended. I wanted more Shep and Jade. More of their delicious story. Bring on the next book in the series which, even though it is Gabe's story, I am hoping for a few appearances from Jade and Shep!!

I just got fucked by Shep Prescott and lord help me, 
I think he's spoiled me for anyone else.

I have always been a huge fan of Monica Murphy, ever since reading the brilliant "One Week Girlfriend" series and I don't say this lightly because that series will always be one of my favourites however in my opinion this was Monica's best work. Jade and Shep's story has consumed me and it has gone straight to the top of the list of my favourite books by this author and definitely one of my favourite of this year so far. I never thought that I would see the day when I loved a book more than the One Week Girlfriend series. Move over Drew and Fable there is a new gorgeous couple in town! 

The minute I kissed her, touched her, everything changed. I want no one else. Just her.

If you are a fan of Monica Murphy, this is a must read and if you are a newbie to this author's work then I would highly recommend starting with this series. Hit that one-click button, peeps. You will not be disappointed! 

I know without a doubt that I'm falling. Falling in love with her. 
So I'm taking care of what's mine.

"Fair Game" gets ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️  from me!
