*Slight spoilers included in review
Title: Games of the Heart
Series:  The Burg Series Book 4
Author:  Kristen Ashley
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Holy mother of all things perfect… Kristen Ashley did it again! Games of the Heart is book four in The Burg series, and as with all things Kristen Ashley it is absolutely the BOMB!  Games of the Heart is Mike’s book which I have been dying to get my hands on since finishing up At Peace.  I just knew, knew, knew when Kristen left Mike heartbroken in At Peace that she had someone special up her sleeve for Mike, and boy did she deliver in Dusty.  Dusty is feisty, loving, and beyond self-confident.  She just breathes life into each and every character in this book.

 What I loved most about this book is the character development that takes place for both the major and minor players in the story.  While Mike and Dusty’s relationship is the focal point of the book, Kristen Ashley creatively weaves a secondary storyline for Mike’s shy and unsure daughter Clarice, and Dusty’s love em and leave em, overly responsible nephew Finley.  The most shocking development for me however was the growth shown by Mike’s ex Audrey.  She went from #1 Bitch on the planet to really taking a look at herself and finding out that she didn’t much like what she saw.  By the end of the book she had truly became a character I could embrace.

 I’m on pins and needles waiting for my next dose of KA with Frankie and Benny’s story which is due out later this year.  I’m almost certain Kristen has set up the possibility to revisit The Burg to tell the wonderful stories of the teenage love affairs that take place as minor storylines in the Burg series.  I can totally see her telling the stories of Cal and Vi’s girls…..squee!  I digress from my obsession of ensuring there will be Kristen Ashley books for me to read when I’m old and gray.  Anyway….if you are a KA fan like me you will certainly not be disappointed with Games of the Heart.
