Book 4 in the Gaming the System Series

Millionaire bad boy Jordan Fawkes has problems.

Big problems.

That molten-hot intern he hooked up with at Comic-Con is now his assistant. No one can know they’re the stars of the cosplay sex tape that broke the Internet.

Business school hopeful April Weiss has drama. Big drama.

Working under the CFO of Draco Multimedia should be the opportunity of a lifetime for her, but Jordan Fawkes is the boss from Hell—a sexier-than-sin boss from Hell who holds all the cards for her future career.

And then there’s the small problem of a certain video…


Steamy Romance Lighthearted

For the Win is Brenna Aubrey's fourth installation in her Gaming the System series, and it's the first book that steps away from Adam and Mia. For the Win centers on Jordan, CFO of Draco, Adam's best friend, and well-known playboy who doesn't believe in relationship, and April Weiss, a Draco intern, who is hired to be Jordan's assistant, in exchange for a recommendation of business school. All is well, until April, in a spiral over her dysfunctional family, gets drunk at comic con, and with the nudging of a "friend", sets out to fulfill a fantasy: anonymous sex. And who better then the guy dressed up as Falco, from Dragon Epoch, with a helmet that covers his face. And why not record it, for an extra thrill? It's hot. The best she's ever had. It also ends up viral the next morning. Which also happens to be her first day working for Jordan, who just so happens to be the guy she hooked up with at comic con.

After the emotional subject manner of the last book, I am glad that Brenna wrote a book featuring a more lighthearted romance. It's not the first secret identity romance I have read, nor is it the first boss and the intern, or enemies to lovers romance, but I gotta say - it's the first romance I have read that starts out with anonymous cos-play sex at comic con! It added a flair of fun to picture a dressed up bounty hunter and elf going at it. The story itself was fun, and since their relationship is settled in the one book, less frustrating, as they work out their issues quickly. The main problem with it is its predictably. There is no sense of mystery.

The characters were likeable, and each had valid, reasonable reasons for being the way they were.

For the Win is a lighthearted romance, which was much needed after the darkness of the last two books in the series. It can be read as a standalone, but I prefer it in the series, as we get a nice "before" picture of our protagonists. If you like sexy, secret-identity, enemy to lover type romances, you will enjoy this one!
