Police detective Tony Dartanion loves his job and wants to make captain but working in a precinct where being gay was not a good thing to be, had Tony hiding that part of himself to everyone around him. What was worse, Tony’s lover, Caelen Tomlin, deserved better than what Tony was giving him. Dancing around the issues in their relationship, Tony decides once and for all to show Caelen that he isn’t that dirty little secret and he was proud to be with him. But will Tony be in time to save his relationship or will he watch it go out the door?

Oh my, Cassandre Dayne delivers one hot sexy story to fall in love with. I fell in love with Tony and Caelen and the reader gets to know both intimately as this author weaves their relationship into the storyline with ease. I enjoyed seeing the way Tony took initiative in his relationship, showing Caelen he can change but also showing that it takes more than pretty words and hot steamy sex to make a relationship work. The writing is tight, the story flows nicely and yes, there are a lot of sex scenes but you get the sense that this was what the author wanted, to show the lengths Tony would go to make his lover see his needs will be met and spice things up a bit. I have got to admit, though, after reading this one, I needed to cool off some. Wow it gets hot in this book.

Meet Tony and Caelen. Tony is a Philly Police Detective, tired of hiding who he really is to the outside world. He knows he needs to mend things with Caelen but is it too late for them? Tony and Caelen are hot together and definitely two people with a deep connection. The reader gets an idea of what is wrong with their relationship and I enjoyed the lengths Tony went to show Caelen this. A sweet twist left me flipping the pages to see what would happen next and man, it threw me completely. I totally enjoyed that little twist and it got me to see how deeply in love these two are with one another. The secondary characters are smoking hot. I swore my fingertips were singed a few times when they came onto the scene.

GAME OVER is more than a romance between two people, it’s about the lengths a person will go to show his lover that he is everything to them. The tenderness between these two characters stole my heart even as they revved my lust up a bit. Let’s just say that walk was greatly needed. Cassandre Dayne is a highly skilled storyteller who knows how to give her readers what they want- two people who go to such lengths to show their hearts to someone, to fix what isn’t broken and let yourself fall in love with them all over again. This is an author who knows her characters-intimately- and I loved how she delivers some even more wicked fun for Caelen. I am not saying what it is, you need to read the book to find out but let’s just say it’s very, very naughty. GAME OVER is one story I want to see more of. I hope the author will go back to these characters and maybe give the secondary characters a chance to shine as well.

If you are looking for a fun, sexy read for a sunny afternoon, then I highly recommend GAME OVER and make sure you have plenty of ice to cool yourself down with…you are going to need it.
