The Game (Paperback)
Janessa Reynolds is a studious and ambitious person, while Bryan ODonald is just a remorseless player using girls for their hearts, and she is next. When they are nudged into each others direction, she decides to spend the last month of her senior year with a boyfriend, making memories and living. Unfortunately, the only contender that she could consider is Bryan. But as they date, they realize they are more similar than they initially thought, especially their past, which has been filled with domestic and child abuse by their fathers. While one continued to live that way beyond the age of five, the other did not, but they are still the only ones that really understand what the other is going through. As they start to fall for each other, Bryan makes a rash decision that causes him to lose her. Can she forgive him? Can he erase the doubt that he planted in her head and start again?
