    One thought on “Not a Game”

    1. This is my favorite CC book since Perfect Imperfections. Not a Game is fluffier than an angora sweater and sweeter than key lime pie. Highlights: - one Oliver (geeky, chubby game designer who’s hopelessly insecure)- one Jaime (sexy, successful, and willing to teach Oliver everything he knows about giving and receiving pleasure)- AGE GAP (Jaime is 40 to Oliver’s 28; I do love me the silver foxes)- a “twist” that’s obvious almost immediately to the reader, but not to Oliver (it doesn’t [...]

    2. *sighing heartily and dreamily*Oh, Oliver, I love you. And, Jaime! You're sooooo kind and loving. Such a sweet plot, adorable characters, amazing supporting characters. I just There isn't much I have to say, you see, because it was a very subtle story. The ups and downs weren't so dramatic, because both the main characters were (amazingly) very mature and didn't argue after jumping to conclusions. Oliver had gone so far down the getting-self-confident road that he had bravely trusted his feeling [...]

    3. Cardeno C. gets cuteness RIGHT! And I'm along for the ride!! Man, I adored this book. If you are in the mood for low angst, total fluff then you've come to the right place! Cardeno C. and I have an interesting relationship. I'm a HUGE CC fan, but I've had VERY strong negative reactions and some VERY strong positive reactions to CC's books. This book was definitely in the postitive camp. I've actually read a few books with similar set-ups before. Thinking that a guy that you met at a bar is the e [...]

    4. This is a perfectly fluffy, low angst, feel good romance that I read twice in a row. And I loved every minute.Oliver Barnaby is 6'2", 290 pounds, and self-conscious about being husky and inexperienced. Now that he's moved to Seattle from Oklahoma he's ready to get some experience so he can become the "new" Oliver.I want Seattle me to be different than Oklahoma me. I have this great job now. I make enough to pay for my own place. I got a new car. But I’m not any closer to having a boyfriend.The [...]

    5. Sweet story, but I had a hard time with how these two met. (view spoiler)[How on earth could Oliver not be angry with how long James lied to him? At least a little angry? *shrugs* (hide spoiler)]All in all, a perfect Cardeno C sugar book. Can't wait for Jack's story!

    6. 4.5 StarsWhat can I say about this except that it was pretty darn awesome?! Literally, this had it all - loveable MC’s, great smex, wonderful feels, and no drama.Insecure Oliver has made it big in his eyes. He’s moved from his small town life, gotten a job he loves, and he’s determined to start things off right. On his to-do list is to be more outgoing, make some friends, and find someone to share his life with.As the blurb says, “an accidental meeting and a misunderstanding” throws Ol [...]

    7. *** 4.25 Stars ***90% of this book may have taken place in a bedroom or on its way to the bedroom, but it was 100% about the heart of the characters. This sort of book is CC's sweet spot and I loved every page.

    8. Actual rating 3.5 starsOliver just moved to Seattle to start a new job. He also wanted to remake himself into a new person. Being so self-conscious and awkward with people, he decided to hire an escort to help him. When Oliver meets Jaime, he thinks Jaime is only attracted to him because he is getting paid to. Jaime was absolutely the sweetest, kindest man ever. He treats Oliver with such reverence, it is hard for Oliver to understand. “Being with you is as comfortable as it is exciting. It fe [...]

    9. 5 Super Sweet StarsThis was an amazing story and I fell in love with Oliver and Jaime and their full of Feelz relationship! Oliver has recently moved to Seattle and has a new job at a leading tech company doing a job he loves. He has his own place, his own car, and a good income -- now he just needs a boyfriend to be happy.

    10. Not a Game was so so sweet. It was a perfect vacation read for me. Low angst, awesomely sweet with really likable characters! Oliver Barnaby is a game developer who is a bit on the heavy side. His self esteem is low and he thinks that because he's not buff, and he isn't sexually experienced, that he'll never be able to find someone to even look past his body type and give him a chance. Oliver wants to make changes in his life. He's in a great new city, has a new job that he loves, he just needs [...]

    11. I waited to post my rating and review until I had the time to read this book a second time to see if my first impression was just skewed. Unfortunately, I liked it even less the second time around.I'm trying to explain why that is because I don't want to let my poor rating stand on its own but I'm not sure how successful I will be. So I apologize in advance if I don't make much sense and for the need for a few spoilers. And I have to say that among my GR friends I'm the odd one out regarding thi [...]

    13. I enjoyed this quite a bit, but I just want to know. When is Jack's book coming out? I will just be over there -----> waiting impatiently4/10/2017 still waiting for Jack's book.

    14. And yes, I've re-read it already and needed to come back and sigh over it - Jaime so obviously besotted and insecurity but no real angstingD minor spoiler(view spoiler)[Jaime wanting to talk to BF Jack but not doing so - because Oliver wouldn't like it and he wanted everything with Oliver(hide spoiler)] is just PERFECT, the respect and care that shows is what makes this book an instant favourite.--FINALLY - this is the book I've been looking for after loving Perfect Imperfections!Cute adorable b [...]

    15. Original book review here.I honestly didn't think I could love this story any more than I already did. Easily on my favorites shelf, this is a perfectly fluffy, low angst, feel good romance that is absolutely, impeccably captured by Michael Ferraiuolo's performance.I loved every minute of it.Ferraiuolo's choices for Oliver, Jaime, and Jack's voices were faultless. He precisely captures Oliver's shyness, Jaime's infatuation, and even Jack's wistfulness.The narration is a brilliant complement to a [...]

    16. This is the Cardeno I know and love!I had so much fun reading this almost zero-angst, fluff-filled, fairy tale-like story that I am still smiling when I think of it. Oliver and Jamie make for an amazing couple. Oliver is overweight and really down on himself because of it. He truly thinks no one would ever look at him twice, let alone want him. Imagine his surprise when the superhot Jamie not only takes a second look but enters a sexual relationship with Oliver. The story is very sex-based, main [...]

    17. 3.5 starsCardeno C. writes fluff like no other. Oliver has been overweight his whole life. He is very insecure about it and thinks no one could possibly want him. Especially since his one ex-boyfriend told him he was bad in bed.So Oliver hires a prostitute, to show him the ropes.It’s like that he meets Jaime in the bar where they’re supposed to meet. Oliver tells Jaime about his insecurities and how much it helps that he is simply paying for his time so he doesn’t have to be nervous.Of cou [...]

    18. I'm giving it the full five stars. I can't help myself. Any book that makes me feel this good from beginning to end, then ends up giving me mushy mush mush tears at the HEA deserves all my stars.Oliver and Jamie are two full grown, established, mature gay men. Each have their own somewhat emotional pasts but are actively working to overcome them. When they come together, it clicks. It clicks into place and locks tight.I enjoyed their story so much. I particularly appreciated their great big hear [...]

    19. 4.5Fluffy! Sweet! No-angst!EXACTLY what I needed right now!!Gah I just ate this up.Oliver was too damn adorable! Sweet and nervous and not some unrealistic model-perfect guy, I loved him so much!Jamie and Oliver's initial meeting was too much! That whole thing was too cute!And yes (view spoiler)[ I did in fact feel dumber than a bag of hammers because I didn't see the thing that we found out at 30%, I didn't see that coming (hide spoiler)] I was glad that there wasn't some like big stupid fight [...]

    20. Oliver, a shy techy gamer decides he wants a different life when he moves to a new city for his job. After answering an ad for "services" he decides to learn some new "things". Jamie, spotting Oliver in a bar, becomes his teacher.These two were so cute and sweet together. I absolutely ADORED Jamie. He was so patient and loving with Oliver. I loved how he wanted Oliver and he was perfect in his eyes. Oliver had some serious insecurities about his body and after one failed attempt at a relationshi [...]

    21. *3.5 stars*Not my favorite book from CC, I'm afraid.What I loved he most was the fact that the chubby MC (who is not identified as bear) stayed that way, and didn't go through an extreme makeover. We definitely need more real life men in MM.However, I didn't manage to connect to the story. Too many lies that felt unecessary from Jaime's part (view spoiler)[and he didn't even reveal the truth himself, Oliver found out on his own (hide spoiler)].A little bit of conflict when Oliver found out the t [...]

    22. I checked my initial disbelief at the door (view spoiler)[ Oliver thinks Jaime is an escort he has hired to teach him how to be better in bed, but Jaime is a millionaire who happens to own the business Oliver works for (hide spoiler)] and went along with this sweet sexy tale of two men who find their ideal partner in the unlikeliest of circumstances.

    23. A sweet soft low angst romance - really a joyful journey of two unlikely people finding each other. It was really nice to read about people being celebrated and seen as beautiful regardless of their size. Jamie & Oliver were perfect.

    24. This was sweet, sweet, sweet!Adorable, straightforward characters, very low angst, and a heart-warming story.The best part was how Jamie desired Oliver for his body type, even before he knew his mind and heart. Almost every MC in popular books is the ripped, pop-culrure fantasy type, and while that is hot, an MC who is overweight, and his love desiring him especially for that fact, was a wonderful change of pace. That's pretty much it all.Couple things left undone, though. Namely, does Jaime wan [...]

    25. Ahhh, I really liked this one. This is a very sweet book. Cute and cuddly through and through. This is also a classic Cardeno C contemporary. When CC nails a contemporary romance you get highly likeable characters and a truly delightful story. That’s this book. That’s Oliver and Jaime. They are perfect for one another, their love addictive, infectious, and squoogey. Is the story full of twists or drama or action? Nope. It has a pretty standard/predictable contemporary romance trajectory. Whi [...]

    26. This is one of those books that had me smiling from beginning to end.I was sure I was gonna like it, after all CC rarely lets me down, and sure enough, I loved it!I kept imagining Oliver as Chris Pratt when he was heavier, whom I found sexy as hell btw. Oliver was this super sweet geeky guy, whose confidence was shattered by an asshole ex. He's just starting to get his life in order. He moved, he's got a job that he loves and pays nicely and he's trying to be more social. What Oliver wants more [...]

    27. OMFG !!!! engrossing, absorbing, captivating, gripping, fascinating, riveting I can't wait to read the next book!
