ISHO SummaryIn this third, stand-alone installment of Amanda Black’s Apartment Novels series, sparks fly during a sexy party game.

When Eden Foster’s parents tell her they’re moving from Chicago to the Illinois suburb of Aledo, Eden is crushed. That is, until she runs crying to her jock boyfriend, who she finds on top of her so-called best friend. Moving’s not looking so bad anymore.

Now a senior at Mercer County High, Eden is ready to re-enter the dating scene. Still burned over the betrayal of her ex, she’s looking for someone sweet and innocent. With the help of her two new friends, Zoe and Amy, Eden makes a list of what she’s looking for: an eager virgin, ready for training—and no jocks.

Eden thinks she’s found what she’s looking for in Logan Black, a shy and geeky classmate. But why are Zoe and Amy convinced that the answer to her search is a party game…with kissing?

Eden better get ready, because she’s about to play the Single Game.

The Single Game is the latest addition to the erotic Apartment Novels series, which began with Lily and Ethan in The Apartment and The Blank Canvas.

isho-my-opinion2I loved The Apartment so I was excited about reading The Single Game and was happy to receive an ARC in exchange for my honest opinion.

I need to clarify that New Adult is not usually my preferred genre in romance books but, having read Amanda Black’s writing before I knew I’d like it.

Eden is a confident and smart young lady who had to deal with an arrogant jerk of a boyfriend in the past and now that she’s in a new school and ready to start dating again, she’s definitely not looking for the same traits in a boy.

Enter Logan.  He’s hot in a shy, nerdy way and he’s perfect.  He’s exactly what Eden is looking for.  Thanks to her new best friends, Eden and Logan are thrown together in “The Single Game” (imagine spin the bottle and seven minutes in heaven – it’s something like that).

As Eden and Logan get to know each other and become closer and closer I found myself saying “awwwww” a lot.  Logan says the sweetest things and is so caring. He made my heart melt. He also said very sexy things.

I really enjoyed all the characters in this book, not just the two main ones.  I loved the best friends and the parents. This was an enjoyable read and I gave it 4 delicious cappuccinos with some monkey bread on the side.
