Synopsis: Millionaire bad boy Jordan Fawkes has problems. Big problems.
That molten-hot intern he hooked up with at Comic-Con is now his assistant. No one can know they’re the stars of the cosplay sex tape that broke the Internet.

Business school hopeful April Weiss has drama. Big drama.
Working under the CFO of Draco Multimedia should be the opportunity of a lifetime for her, but Jordan Fawkes is the boss from Hell—a sexier-than-sin boss from Hell who holds all the cards for her future career.

And then there’s the small problem of a certain video…

**This novel can be read as a stand-alone**

Review: 4 Stars - For the Win might be the forth book in the Gaming Systems series, but it’s more of a companion novel featuring characters who were secondary in the first three books. And while this could be read as a standalone, future readers will get a better idea what’s happened to date and why these characters are on the road they are currently on.

Jordan is the numbers guy behind Draco Multimedia. His dream has been to take the company public. He’s been working hard to make his dream come true while helping his best friend Adam make his dream come true with the company they’ve both poured their heart and souls into since the beginning. And when his careful plans and hard work is threatened he’s out to make the person pay while trying to salvage everything he’s worked for. With the finish line oh so close and within his reach he’s battling more for his dream for the company. He’s battling to keep his feelings locked up tight after a painful past crushed him which he’s never forgotten.

And then there’s Ms. April Weiss, the bane of Jordan’s existence. She’s working alongside Jordan with the hopes of earning a recommendation to her dream school. When a bad decision goes horribly wrong for her, she’s working hard to try to control the damage.

Both of these characters are interesting the more you learn about them. They are both dealing with who they are, where they are going in their lives, where they want to be and issues they’ve carried with them that affect them from year to year.

There’s drama and angst, and serious issues which are current to this day and age. Along with characters who will keep you entertained as they work through their issues and try to deal with their pasts and a future that’s in question after a wild night at Comic-Con that could cost both Jordan and April more than they’ve ever imagined. There are also tons of steamy moments and emotions that’ll have your blood boiling one minute and your heart hurting the next.

This author without a doubt writes great characters and stories that keep me coming back for more! While I do love these books, there’s something a bit missing for me with this title. One main issue I was waiting to find out how everything would play out left me feeling a bit flat. Otherwise I’d give this a bit higher rating. I couldn’t wait to read Jordan’s story and I really wasn’t let down with his part of things within the Gaming System story, I think I’m even more so looking forward to the next book which is about Adams cousin William. And the cool thing there’s a bit of a surprise at the end of this title to give readers a taste of what’s to come! Excited doesn’t even come close to what I’m feeling for the next title to read about William!

In the end, I’m a fan of this series, these characters and this author. If you love gaming or just like strong characters with even stronger personalities and issues many people will be able to relate to, then you’ve found just the right series to dive into. I’ll be watching out for any and all info about Williams’s book and I can’t wait to get my hands on it!!
