The Game that Breaks Us by Micalea Smeltzer Blog Tour!

The Game That Breaks Us by Micalea Smeltzer
Genre: New Adult
Series: Us #3

Release Date: June 27th

Hockey’s bad boy needs to clean up his reputation…

Bennett James has built his career at being the best, on and off the ice, and now it’s come back to bite him. The media has turned against him, and with a near career-ending injury, he needs to clean up his act and prove that he’s serious about the game. For Bennett, working with his old coach at his alma mater feels like a step back, but it might be just what he needs.

…and she’s going to help him do it.

Grace Wentworth has always been the good girl, and she’s tired of that stigma. She wants to prove that she can get down and dirty with the best of them. The problem? She doesn’t know how.

Bennett will teach the good girl how to be bad, if she pretends to be his goody two-shoes girlfriend in front of the media.

But what happens when the game becomes real?

(on sale for a limited time)


I love Micalea's work and so when I was given the opportunity for this ARC I was so excited! Especially considering I have an addiction to Hockey Romances. While this book doesn't feature hockey heavily the fact that Bennett is a hockey player going through rehab to get back on the ice is enough for me, especially considering the NHL season ended just a little while ago. 

The plot itself certainly had a few big shockers and surprises for the readers, adding that bit of shock value to keep an already captive reader even more entranced. Add that to two main characters that are flawed enough to be believable and lifelike not to mention occasionally awkward(which is funny for the reader), The Game that Breaks Us is one that I had a hard time putting down. I enjoyed reading each encounter that the two had with each other and other characters(including a few familiar characters for those who have read previous works by Micalea). 

Overall this was a fun read that I had a hard time putting down once I started.
