"Game of Love is what a good sports romance should be; fast paced, strategic, emotional, and endlessly fascinating." - 5 Star Review - Natasha Jackson for Readers' Favorite

Gemma Lennon has spent nearly all of her 21 years focused on one thing: Winning a Grand Slam. 

After a disastrous and very public scandal and subsequent loss at the Australian Open, Gemma is now laser-focused on winning the French Open. Nothing and no one will derail her shot at winning – until a heated chance encounter with brilliant and sexy Andre Reyes threatens to throw her off her game. 

Breaking her own rules, Gemma begins a whirlwind romance with Andre who shows her that love and a life off the court might be the real prize. With him, she learns to trust and love…at precisely the worst time in her career. The pressure from her home country, fans, and even the Prime Minister to be the first British woman to win in nearly four decades weighs heavily. 

As Wimbledon begins, fabricated and sensationalized news about them spreads, fueling the paparazzi, and hurting her performance. Now, she must reconsider everything, because in the high-stakes game of love, anyone can be the enemy within…even lovers and even friends. In the Game of Love, winner takes all.

What a breathtaking, earth shattering debut by Ara Grigorian!

I have so many things to say, but first I’d like make a personal note to the author, who is also very charming in real life!

Ara, I read in your bio that you are coming from an entirely different background. We are quite similar in this; you have an Engineering degree and I have a Computer Science, but our love for writing has surpassed these details. So, as a person who understands your place and as a reader/reviewer, I can honestly say that you were born to do this. Writing is your path and I feel honoured having been able to see you from your beginning.

Now, that being said, let’s go to the novel itself.

I have read so many books, some good, some great, some really amazing. So, nowadays I crave for something more; for something that will capture my heart and my mind, something truly and irrevocably worth reading.

Game of Love is out of this world. It’s a beautiful story, with original, extraordinary characters that will make everything and everyone else fade away in the background.

The author and his team could have made it sexier, with more steamy scenes and I LOVE that they didn’t. I loved the fact that the story was what mattered, and nothing more. I loved their approach and their successful work at making this a quality book.

Everything about this novel is original and it sets it apart from any other novel. I had read only one other novel about tennis, and I loved that one, too. It seems that so far, the tennis novels are really good - EXTRAORDINARILY GOOD-. So, after that other novel, I decided I wanted to read some more and here it is; Game of Love.

It has so many details about tennis that even I learnt a couple of things! I loved that the author wanted to be accurate and hence, gave a fascinating story revolving around tennis.

One other thing I loved -yes, I am aware I have been using that word repeatedly, but i can’t help it- is the characters themselves. Gemma & Andre, oh I love you so much! They are both so strong, so determined, so beautiful people...But, besides them, I felt that every other character fit perfectly in the story and everyone contributed something special to it. The ‘cast’ seemed so effortless, that it just added to this already remarkable novel.

There are so many books and so many authors out there, and you may not know what to buy etc..

Game of Love is extraordinary!


It is a fantastic book with a captivating story and amazing characters.

It is worth every penny.

If you love books, this is a MUST READ.

Game of Love receives 5 Amazing Stars!!!

About the author:

Armenian by heritage, born in Iran, lived in Barcelona, and escaped New York until he found his home in Los Angeles, Ara’s first eleven years were both busy and confusing. The fruit salad of languages would slow down his genetically encoded need to tell stories. Until then, an alter ego would be required…

He received an engineering degree from California State University Northridge and earned his MBA from the University of Southern California. Today, he is a technology executive in the entertainment industry. True to the Hollywood life, Ara wrote for a children’s television pilot that could have made him rich (but didn’t) and nearly sold a video game to a major publisher (who closed shop days later).

But something was amiss until his wife read him the riot act. “Will you stop talking about wanting to be a writer and just do it?” So with her support (and mandate), and their two boys serving as his muse, he wrote stories.

Fascinated by the human species, Ara writes about choices, relationships, and second chances. Always a sucker for a hopeful ending, he writes contemporary romance stories. He is an alumnus of both the Santa Barbara Writers Conference and Southern California Writers’ Conference (where he also serves as a workshop leader). Ara is active member of the Romance Writers of America and its Los Angeles chapter.
