Head Games By Cassandra Carr

Head Games (Buffalo Intimidators #1)

*Submitted for review by author*

Genre: Erotic Romance


Leo Laporte and Scott Schaeffer are teammates on the ice and roommates off it who also share women. They’ve been coming into Kelly Chase’s bistro after games for months, and they know they want her. As the attraction grows, the men realize they want more than a one-night stand - they want forever.

Kelly’s not so sure. Yes, she wants both men. But a permanent ménage relationship? That’s taking giving her heart away to a whole new level, and a chance she’s hesitant to take. Then Leo is injured and Scott’s on the trading block, and she realizes this may be her only shot at true, everlasting love.

There are so many questions swirling around inside Kelly’s head. Can she believe in Leo and Scott’s love? And will her business and her reputation survive once people find out she’s with two men?


Scott and Leo are ice-hockey players, both who happen have to hots for luscious, curvy, apple pie making Kelly;

“―All right. Can‘t hurt. We need to present a united front if we‘re gonna do this.”
”Exactly. So both of us want her.”They‘d been attracted to Kelly since the moment they‘d laid eyes on her, but had come to the realization a few months ago that their feelings ran deeper than simple lust.”
They both team up in an effort to win Kelly over to their side, so called operation seduction. Kelly shares the desire for both Scott and Leo but is reluctant to share that fact, she believes her wanted to be wrong and with them both being known heartbreakers, she didn’t want to be another casualty but when Scott and Leo finally make their move, she is powerless to resist. The three have many bumps in the road on their way to finding happiness and working out how the relationship will work between the three, Kelly freaks out on a few occasions but her feelings always lead her back to the men she loves.
This is a prime example of how a ménage should be written. It isn’t overdone or cheesy. The characters each have a personality all of their own which leaps off the page. The way Kelly reacted after her first steamy encounter with Scott and Leo was realistic which is what I liked; she didn’t just jump on board with the plan or be accustomed to it right from the start. I really liked the side character Bonnie, she is open-minded and supportive of her friend and co-worker Kelly.  This is my first Cassandra Carr read and I loved it. I devoured this in one sitting, unable to tear myself away from the story even if my life depended on it, the steamy romps between the three were written perfectly and the plot flowed and was easy to keep up with. If someone hasn’t been introduced to the ménage genre before, this would be a good starting off point.
