Bad enough Jade Frost's boyfriend drags her to a boring poker game. Even worse that he actually threw her into the betting pot during an intense round...and lost. Talk about the perfect excuse for Jade to make him her ex-boyfriend.

Now she supposedly belongs to the ultra rich, extremely gorgeous Shep Prescott. He could have anything he wants yet he seems to be in hot pursuit of her. No matter how rude, how snarky, how impossible she acts, it doesn't stop him. More like her horrible behavior seems to make him want her more.

When she finds herself starting to fall for him, Jade's confused. There's more to Shep than the carefree rich charmer he portrays. No way could he want a serious relationship with her...or could he?

Fair Game in Five Words by Monica Murphy 

It’s really hard for me to consolidate FAIR GAME into only five words. I could use so many to describe this book that gave me all the feels while I wrote it. Seriously, I had the best time writing it. Like I cracked myself up and swooned a little over Shepard Prescott (okay fine I swooned a lot). I may sound crazy, but these characters that reside in my head tend to take over and it’s like they’re real. They’re the ones dictating the story, not me… 

But I’m veering off track. So here are five words that describe FAIR GAME (first in my new NA series The Rules): 

Ridiculous: This word popped up continuously as I wrote. Shep’s name is ridiculous, the way he acts is ridiculous, Jade feels like her reaction to Shep is ridiculous…it’s all ridiculous. I love this word and always try to include the term ridiculously good looking in a book (thank you Zoolander). Now I can’t remember if I did use that term in FAIR GAME. I hope I did… 

Sexy: I can’t write a book without it being sexy. I just can’t. So that’s a guarantee. Well, at least I hope you think it’s sexy. I found Shep to be incredibly sexy, what with his relentless pursuit of Jade. He’s the type of guy who once he figures out what he wants, he won’t slow down until he gets it. And what he wants is Jade… 

Fun: If you’re used to my previous new adult series (One Week Girlfriend), then you know I can bring the angst. I know how to make characters suffer. But with FAIR GAME, there’s not much suffering. Well, Shep does suffer from a case of blue balls here and there and Jade gets super mad at him at one point, but overall, this book isn’t much on angst. It’s fun. A little silly. 

Sweet: I’m a sucker for a sweet and sexy romance. I like writing them too. I love sexual tension and having that feeling where I’m just dying for the couple to get together already, but I also like a little sweetness added to the sexy times. And I think FAIR GAME has a lot of sweetness, especially when it comes to Shep and the way he acts around Jade. He defends her so readily. He genuinely likes her, despite her initial distrust of him. And I find that sweet. Hope you do too. 

Bromance: There’s not only romance, there’s bromance in this book peeps. Shep has his best friend Gabe and his cousin (and close friend) Tristan—the three of them run an illegal gambling house (scandalous!). I wanted to focus on the friendship these three have and I plan on going even deeper with each book. I love a good bromance! I hope I’m not alone in that sentiment.

The Rules series will continue with In the Dark and Slow Play!

IN THE DARK (Book 2) August 25, 2015
Stuck spending the summer with his screwed up family, Gabriel Walker is bored out of his mind and looking for an adventure. And he seems to find it with the hot girl who lives next door. The attraction between them is instant. Electric. Soon they’re spending every stolen minute together. Talk about the perfect summer fling…

Lucy isn’t what she seems. She doesn’t live next door—she’s the maid who’s been hired to house sit for the summer while the family goes on a worldwide vacation. If Gabe wants to believe she’s a spoiled rich girl looking for some fun, she can go along with that. After the summer, she’ll never see him again.

They don’t count on running into each other at college. Now Lucy must keep up the pretense of being a rich girl—and it’s exhausting. She knows she’s falling in love with Gabe and she’s scared he feels the same. Will he still care about her when he discovers the truth?

Newly broke girl Alexandria Asher just wants to live a normal life. After her parents are sent to prison on embezzlement charges, she enrolls in college under her mother’s maiden name and tries her best to pretend she’s someone else.

Tristan Chadwick is everything Alex is trying to avoid. A seemingly egotistical, lazy, rich jerk, she dumps her beer on his head when he comes on to her one night at a party. This only spurs Tristan into action. He loves nothing more than a challenge. And the beautiful Alex is exactly the type of challenge that intrigues him.

Despite her reluctance, Alex finds herself quickly involved with Tristan. Underneath that playboy exterior is a good guy, a sweet and sexy guy who she is undoubtedly falling for. What they both don’t realize is the actions of Alex’s parents are the reason for so much tragedy in Tristan’s family. And when Tristan discovers who Alex and her family really is, can he forgive and forget?
