REVIEW – The Game Plan (Game On, #3) by Kristen Callihan

TGP Amazon


A beard-related dare and one hot-as-hell kiss changes everything.

NFL center Ethan Dexter’s focus has always been on playing football and little else. Except when it comes to one particular woman. The lovely Fiona Mackenzie might not care about his fame, but she’s also never looked at him as anything more than one of her brother-in-law’s best friend. That ends now.

Fi doesn’t know what to make of Dex. The bearded, tattooed, mountain of man-muscle looks more like a biker than a football player. Rumor has it he’s a virgin, but she finds that hard to believe. Because from the moment he decides to turn his quiet intensity on her she’s left weak at the knees and aching to see his famous control fully unleashed.

Dex is looking for a forever girl, but they live vastly different lives in separate cities. Fi ought to guard her heart and walk away. But Dex has upped his game and is using all his considerable charm to convince Fi he’s her forever man.

(ARC provided in exchange for an honest review)

This book is a great addition to the fantastic Game On series. Kristen Callihan created a gorgeous story with the signature style that we have grown to love about these books, but managed to make it completely different. Very sweet and original, loved Dex and Fi’s story…


Dexter is big, tattooed, and has piercings in all the right places, but images can be deceiving and the hard exterior of this football super star might not be all there is to him.

Fiona knew Dexter from when he used to play college football with her sister’s husband, but she never really noticed him, and she really doesn’t know why because he is absolutely gorgeous. Fiona had been busy with school, partying and then trying to establish herself in the real world.

What Fiona doesn’t know is that she has been completely lost and looking for the answers in all the wrong places. Until Ethan Dexter comes into her life and very bluntly and deliciously puts everything into perspective for her.

Dex and Fiona finally get together but the timing always feels wrong, plus they live in separate cities. Fiona has issues with being left behind and broken hearted, and Dex is very insecure about his inexperience when it comes to love, but these two will find a way into a future together, or will they?…


I really enjoyed this book. As a fan of this series I loved being able to get a glimpse into the lives of all my other favorite characters from previous books.

The banter and interactions between Dex and Fi were totally hilarious and I really loved how different they were yet they complemented each other perfectly.

I highly recommend this book, it’s a super fun and romantic read. Perfect for Fall…
