Winning the Game - Leesa Bow - Blog Tour & Review


Title: Winning The Game
Author: Leesa Bow
Genre: New Adult/ Sports Romance
Cover designer: Najila Qamber
Release Date: May 17th




Troubled Aussie football star, Rhett Williams’ infamous off-field misdemeanors land him in front of his club’s board with an ultimatum: clean up his bad-boy image or lose his contract.

There’s one catch: appear on a reality show to reinvent himself.

Football is Rhett’s lifeblood, but his family and the orchard farm in the country where he grew up means more, especially as his family relies on his wage to keep the business afloat. So Rhett puts his opinion of reality shows aside to concentrate on doing whatever it takes to be re-signed.

Career-focussed TV mentor, Tori Winchester doesn’t have time for men, or a social life, which suits her fine. When Rhett Williams arrives on set with his blond beach hair and his mesmerising blue eyes, her resolve begins to crumble. He’s not the spoiled bad boy casting had told her to expect.

Getting involved with someone like Rhett could not only damage her long-term career prospects, they could both lose everything.

In a game of cat and mouse, Rhett is playing the one game he doesn’t want to win…

Being an Australian, I love when I discover an Australian author I haven't read before.  Add to that the fact that Winning the Game is based in Adelaide, the city within which I reside and is based around a sport I love I was hooked. 

Winning the Game has a wonderful blend of drama, angst and heat, with colorful characters that are really quite complex yet believable.  The characters and story line took me through a gamut of emotions, and at times I wanted to hug Rhett and Tori, and other times I was so frustrated with them, I felt like strangling them. 

Overall I found Winning the Game to be a very enjoyable sports romance, with quite a few twists and turns that I didn't anticipate, and I was glued to my kindle from start to finish. 

I would recommend Winning the Game to anyone who enjoys an Australian theme romance, sports romance, or enjoys reality TV shows like the bachelor.  I am sure I will be reading more of Leesa's work in the future and look forward to supporting a local author. 

Leesa Bow loves to read and write spicy romance. She spends her spare time with her family, catching up with girlfriends in cafes, or taking long walks along the beautiful, southern beaches of Adelaide, Australia.
