    A wonderful conclusion to this series

    The final book in this series and it is a firecracker! Ethan and Lissa are a supernova couple. I mean I thought Marley and Austin were hot but these two completely tip the scales on the hot-o-meter. I was so looking forward to Ethan finally get an HEA and I'm so glad that he's found his other half in Lissa who is this amazing photographer; the one woman with enough courage to stand up to Ethan's surly character. I wish there were more characters to write about. I'm not happy it's ending :( ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

    Great end to the series!

    This is the last book in the Gamers series, a set of books I've really enjoyed that focused on a video game magazine and its employees. They've all been super sexy stories with unique characters. We've seen Ethan as this reclusive smart man in the background as a secondary character up to now, with his sister Chloe finding love in Book 2, Playing For Her Heart with his business partner and friend Grant. It's finally his turn, and he meets his match in Lissa, a photographer who was hired as part of a PR campaign for the magazine. I really enjoyed all the aspects of this story! First we have Ethan, a scarred man both inside and out, from a traumatic episode in his past that drastically changed him and damaged his relationship with his parents too. He's still trying to atone for his mistakes and hasn't forgiven himself, making it impossible for him to commit to a relationship. Then there is Lissa, a woman whose sister committed suicide. She too carries guilt for not recognizing what her sister was going through. She's trying to make some amends with a fundraising project for college scholarships, using her skills as a photographer to create an exhibit that takes people with visible scars and tells their stories. Though she initially wants to have Ethan in the exhibit, as she gets to know him she realizes that he is so intensely private that she changes her mind. Ethan can't deny he's attracted to Lissa and even though he doesn't believe he's relationship material, she has no problem with their casual hookups, resulting in some very sexy scenes between them. I really liked that Lissa was an empowered woman who was an equal partner in their encounters, and wasn't afraid to call Ethan out when he tried to apologize for his behaviour, feeling like he'd pushed her into things she wasn't ready for. I also really appreciated that this is an interracial romance, and that while Lissa is African American, her skin colour was never an issue for Ethan or his friends, and vice versa. They were just a couple falling for each other, sharing their secrets with each other, and becoming integral to each other's lives. The conflict is both internal and external, with Ethan's wariness at getting involved and Lissa's side project blindsiding Ethan and making him question their relationship. I enjoyed how the whole story played out, the cameos of the secondary characters from previous stories, and having a strong female heroine stand up for herself. There were laugh out loud moments, and some surprising tears for me too. It was a great ending to the series! I will miss these guys. 5 stars.

    Nice!

    In the 4th and final book in the Gamers series, we get to see Ethan find love! This book is steamy hot, raunchily funny and hands down a nice ending to the series. Ethan Talley has exiled himself from life for a number of years now, and he isn't happy to have his business partner forcing a newspaper interview on him, but he draws the line at having his picture taken, no matter how sexy the photographer is! Lissa Kingsman only has to hear Ethan's voice for a few minutes before she recognizes him as a YouTube gamer from years ago that she used to watch with her brother. He disappeared from the limelight all of a sudden and no one knew why. She wonders if the scars down the side of his face have something to do with it. Ethan is drawn to Lissa even though he wants nothing to do with being in front of her camera. She reaches him like no one else, and he finds himself unable to stop hooking up with her. After a few times, casual sex is no longer enough and he wants more. Are they ready to handle each other's pasts in order to have a future together?

    Well done.

    For fans of age old fairy tales, Leveling the Field by Megan Erickson may seem familiar. Beauty and the Beast has never been told quite like this however. Ms. Erickson gave it a spicy edge but kept the core message and the emotional feel. I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review. No matter how many times it's told and whole the main characters are the central message of inner beauty is what makes Beauty and the beast a classic read that is both beautiful and unique. Ms. Erickson lived up to the message with Lissa and Ethan's story and gave it her own special touch. Well done.

    Leveling the Field -Megan Erickson

    3.75 stars--LEVELING THE FIELD is the fourth installment in Megan Erickson’s contemporary, adult GAMERS erotic, romance series focusing on the men and women who work for Gamers Magazine and in the gaming industry. This is former YouTube sensation and Gamers co-owner Ethan Talley, and photographer Lissa Kingsman. LEVELING THE FIELD can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Grant is Chloe’s brother (Playing for Her Heart #2). Told from dual third person perspectives (Lissa and Ethan) LEVELING THE FIELD follows the building relationship between Lissa and Ethan. Ethan is a man who keeps to himself; hides a multitude of physical and emotional scars that have left him a broken shell of a man, and a man whose heart was destroyed with the death of someone close. Enter Lissa Kingsman, a woman whose own emotional scars remain hidden behind the glitter of boudoir photography, and a smile that presents its face to the world. When Lissa’s latest assignment to photograph the reclusive Gamer entrepreneur goes downhill, she is stunned when Ethan makes her an offer she doesn’t want to refuse. What ensues is the friends with benefits relationship between two people whose earlier years met with heartbreak, loss, and grief. Tragedy struck both families: where Ethan has shunned the outside world and the family he once loved, Lissa calls attention to the people who have overcome their scars and obstacles in life. LEVELING THE FIELD is a storyline that covers a number of issues including accidental death, suicide, gay lovers, interracial relationships, and dysfunctional family heartbreak. All of the previous storyline couples play secondary and supporting roles. We are introduced to Lissa’s parents and her brother Angel, as well as Ethan’s family-long estranged from their only son. LEVELING THE FIELD is a quick and sexy read. There are moments of heartbreak and presumed betrayal; grief and loss; acceptance and moving forward. The premise is enjoyable; the characters are colorful, animated and fun; the romance is seductive. There is no denying the attraction between our leading couple but some of their interludes felt cold and empty hearted-it is the nature of the beast that only wants $ex with no emotional after thoughts.
