Talon Gold is a lot of things: good at football, bad at love. Obsessed with scoring, refuses to play by the rules. Cruel. Relentless. Brilliant. Intoxicatingly attractive. 

Despite his demanding reputation and propensity for being the most arrogant a-hole ever to strut Pacific Valley University’s picturesque campus, everyone wants a piece of him: coaches, scouts, and pretty little campus fangirls with pouty lips and perfect top knots. 

But Talon … he only wants a piece of me. 

And four straight years of infuriating rejection means I’m almost positive he’d take a night with me over a national championship trophy. 

But I’m no fool—he only wants me because he can’t have me. And with graduation approaching, time is running out. He’s more desperate than ever, pulling out all the stops and doing everything in his power to get in my good graces. 

They say, “Don’t hate the player, hate the game.” 

But to that I say, “Why not both?”

I have my reasons …

Sorry, BMOC. This victory? Not going to happen.


Hate the Game by Winter Renshaw is a beautifully captivating slow burn new adult sports romance that had my heart all twisted up. Talon Gold and Irie Davenport were complete opposites, even if he knew she was the one that kept getting away. With college graduation upon them, neither one of them expect things to suddenly change, but one they did…there was no going back.

Winter Renshaw’s storytelling ability always manages to captivate my attention and her character development makes me feel immediately connected to them. The love story of Talon and Irie made my heart ache from all the excitement and I was definitely rooting for these two right from the start. The chemistry between them was heartwarming and the build up towards their happily ever after was full of angst. Oh and the sweetness factor was on point, which had me swooning!

There hasn’t been a single Winter Renshaw story that I haven’t loved yet and this book was no exception! I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on her next story because I am ready for more!
