Melody Cartwright has never had a problem with change, but for the first time in her life the changes are beyond her control—she suddenly has a niece she never knew, but has to prove herself to; her best friend is making huge life changes of her own; and she has to deal with her ex and his crazy new girlfriend who has stalker tendencies.
When Melody meets confident, sexy Julian, she’s not interested in a relationship. He tells her it’s possible for a man and a woman to just be friends, and despite his ultra-charming ways there’s something about him that makes Melody believe he could be right.
During a time of change and turmoil, it doesn’t take long for Julian to become everything Melody never knew she needed in her life. But is it possible for them to remain ‘just friends’ or will Melody be a game changer for Julian the playboy?
As soon as Olivia and Melody moved in together and said that they always wanted to have a cute apartment by themselves like Monica and Rachel from Friends, I was hooked! Olivia and Melody had me cracking up. I just loved watching the two of them together.
But what I really loved about The Game Changer is that even the secondary characters were fully fleshed out and developed. You got to know everyone, and each of their stories was effortlessly woven into the main plot. Marie Landry makes writing seem effortless. She made me tear up in BOTH of her books. (and I am not an easy crier people!) She is just a powerful writer. I loved Blue Sky Days, but I loved The Game Changer even more.
Melody meets Julian, who I absolutely loved as well, pretty quickly in the story but the romance and friendship builds between them throughout the book. No one can classify this as insta-love. This is the real, believable kind of love that will have you rooting for the two of them and sometimes wanting to hit them upside the head so they can just get over themselves and make something happen already! Because you know they are so perfect together, but just like real life things happen, there are ups and downs, and of course, there is change.
The Game Changer is one of those rare books that I fell in love with one page one. I had to put it down a few times because I didn’t want it to end. I want to read it again and again. The Game Changer is a must read!
