      Product description


      “A simmering and sexy rom-com packed with funny, endearing moments.”
      —Woman’s World“A charming, steamy new rom-com for fans of Ted Lasso.”

      “Elena Armas never misses. Armas has given us an entire cast of funny, exciting characters wrapped in the most perfect small town, slow burn bow. The Long Game has everything you could ever want in a rom-com, including goats.”
      —Hannah Grace, New York Times bestselling author of Icebreaker

      The Long Game is pure fun with chemistry so palpable it will set your pages on fire while melting your heart. It’s honestly what sports romance dreams are made of!”
      Sarah Adams, New York Times bestselling author of Practice Makes Perfect

      “The Long Game is utterly charming and gloriously sexy—I couldn’t put it down! Elena Armas write slow burn like a finely tuned symphony, and I wanted nothing more than to be Cameron’s darling by the end.”
      —Lana Ferguson, author of The Nanny

      “Elena Armas is the queen of steamy, vulnerable, addicting romance. A slow-burn that had me sinking into each page, THE LONG GAME is a love letter to becoming the best version of yourself. I couldn’t get enough of Cameron and Adalyn and the way they made each other shine brighter. And the chemistry? Smoking hot.”
      —B.K. Borison, author of Lovelight Farms

      “Armas is an expert on what makes a romance reader’s heart race.”—Tessa Bailey, #1 New York Times bestselling author

      1. Elegant Fantasy

        I LOVED this book it was one of my most anticipated reads. I loved Adalyn & Cameron. Adalyn was smart, strong capable but jilted and while I did not really like her attitude in the beginning getting to know what really made her be like that softened me up. Cameron was totally swoon worthy! The way he was so caring, protective and soft towards Adalyn and the kids was adorable! This was a slow burn but nowhere I felt like I was bored because all the side characters made this book so much more entertaining especially Maria & Josie! The last half of the book made me feel so many butterflies! I was in a bad mood before reading this book but after; I was delighted because it definitely uplifted my spirit! Overall this was a typical slow burn romance but I know I’ll read this book sometime again when I need a dose of joy!

        The review is totally based on the condition of the book that it came in. I’ve got it from The CLASSIC BOOKSTORE seller and it arrived mostly perfectly. There were a few scratches and an almost invisible fold which is actually totally fine considering my biggest concern was recieving the actual copy not a pirated one. Satisfied with the product.

        ✔️grumpy x grumpy✔️sloww burn✔️hate to love✔️small town ✨✔️dual pov✔️cute side charactersWhen a PR disaster lands Adalyn Reyes in a small town, she’s tasked to help a struggling soccer team to redeem herself. What she doesn’t expect is Cameron Caldani, the former soccer legend to be there, as the coach. And things can’t get worse than her accidentally hitting him by her car in their first meeting, right? Wrong! Because, Coach Cam might just be her new neighbour too.This was such a cute, funny and heartfelt small town romance. I adored all the side characters so much. Josie, Matthew, Maria and Brandy deserve special appreciation! Oh, and how can I forget the pop culture references? And everytime Elena mentioned Sebastian Stan in the book, I smiled a little too wide. I gotta say though, the pace was a little too slow for me at times. Also, the nickname darling and love just didn’t suit the overall vibe of the book. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love these nicknames but here they didn’t fit well. Overall, it was all good!The American Roommate Experiment is still my favourite Elena book and TSLD still comes a close second! 🥹

        Soft slow burnSlow burn lovers, this one’s for you! It’s a long game indeed for these two instant enemies, with a quiet, soft story that takes its time before slowly cranking up the heat. The first half teases with smaller moments and potential-filled glances, leaving a trail of breadcrumbs towards the tension-filled romance that sparks in the back half. It gets richer and deeper as the story progresses, with a tender and intimate love story at the heart of it. These two are both grumpy at first glance, but peeling back the layers of their personalities and tearing down their walls allows them to understand the ways in which they’re perfect for each other. I loved that the hero was such a sweetheart underneath his initial gruff, and he made the ideal counterpart to the bossy, “cold” heroine. Together, they made a fantastic team, and watching them slowly connect was quite the journey.The story follows Adalyn, a woman whose father owns a professional soccer team. Adalyn has been working hard to prove herself, and that often makes people believe she’s cold and unfeeling. It’s not until a viral video ruins Adalyn’s reputation that she realizes just how little love she has in her life – punctuated by the fact that her own father has temporarily exiled her to a small town. Adalyn expects to be working with a smaller soccer team… and is dismayed to discover that it’s actually a team of little girls. Even worse? Their coach is the grumpy stranger Adalyn may or may not have hit with her car when she arrived in town. The two started feuding the moment they met, and they continue to clash over how to run the team. But the more Adalyn and Cameron get to know each other, the more they realize that their initial assumptions were all wrong. They’re both in town while grappling with some major changes in their lives, and Cameron’s unexpected support is a balm to Adalyn’s system.I ADORED The Spanish Love Deception, but the audiobook narrators ruined The American Roommate Experiment for me, so I was cautiously optimistic going into this. I wasn’t sure what to expect. So this love story snuck up on me, especially with the exceedingly slow burn at the center of it. Though I was interested in Cameron and Adalyn’s story the whole way through, the first half focuses on quietly tearing down their walls. As we learned more about each of them, I really grew to love them both as individuals – and it was easy to see the little kernels of connection. This truly is a slow burn romance that will require some patience from the reader, but it burns so good in the back half. Cameron reveals himself to be such a loving, supportive man, and I swooned over how well he understood Adalyn. He’s definitely a man with layers, and I loved peeling back all of them. As with The Spanish Love Deception, the tension starts building later in story, with some intensely intimate and spicy moments between these two. I became more emotionally invested in the story with every page, and it ended up being a pretty stellar read.Audio note: The audio was great! I cannot even tell you how disappointed I was to jump into The American Roommate Experiment on release day and discover that the narrators were ALL wrong for the story. If I close my eyes and try to remember that book, I’m still haunted by the male narrator’s over the top performance – it’s honestly the only memory I have of the story. So I wasn’t sure I was going to listen to this one on audio, but I’m glad I took the chance. This is my first experience with Frankie Corzo, but she does a phenomenal job. I loved her voice, and it was perfect for the story. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Shane East (the British accent doesn’t do it for me, sorry), but I actually really enjoyed him here. Not sure if he’s toned down the accent since I listened to him last, but his voice was right for Cameron. They both do a great job infusing emotion into the performance, so I ended up having a very successful listening experience. The runtime (13-14 hours) was longer than I could get through in a single day, but I became more and more excited to get back to the story every time I set it down. It would make a solid workday listen since the romance is such a slow burn and much of the story is upbeat, though there are several spicy moments later on. I ended up loving the audio, and it improved my reading experience for sure.

        it was okayI did not enjoy this as much as The Spanish Love Deception or the American Roommate Experiment, but I’d be hard-pressed to explain why! It was fine. I had a good time. No regrets at all and I’ll read the next book.

        We all need a Cam in our lives.Aw I liked this one! Cameron and all his British ‘darlings’ and ‘loves’ were my favorite! Cameron was great. He wasn’t afraid to be vulnerable, he admitted when he messed up, and he was such a great protector. I loved how he saw Adalyn behind her rock hard exterior. Honestly, we all need a Cam in our lives.Adalyn (Also, I really love the name Adalyn!) was pretty great too. She had some stuff to work through but she’s one of those people with a hard outer shell. You just have to get to the middle to find the good stuff. I actually really liked her and felt for her. Can you imagine growing up with her parents? Yikes. This was a slow burn with so much tension. Wonderful secondary characters. Maria 👧🏻, Brandy🐐, and my girl, Willow 🐈 were stand outs! If you win over a moody cat then I believe I can trust you.I thoroughly enjoyed this one more than I thought I would. 😊 also, thank you for normalizing therapy! Loved that:)I’m super excited for the little tease for the next book.

        Loved this gameThis is a great third novel by Elena Armas. She’s definitely growing as a writer and I really enjoyed The Long Game. The openness of what the characters are feeling is completely opposite of how they were in The Spanish Love Deception (it was a lovely surprise at the end that they actually liked each other) but my only criticism is that it was a little too much. Cam seemed to go from 0 to 100 and I loved Elena’s first two books for their slow burn (Long Game also had a very nice burn…) and what felt like a fresh way of writing for this genre. The quick-to-love almost felt like she was writing to please what’s expected? Not sure what I’m trying to say except it has a different stride. I hope to read many more books by this author, she is definitely on my “read anything that she writes” list!

      8. Kindle Customer

        Should be on romance lovers book listsCharacter driven romance that feels real. Great success attributed to character internal dialog, explaining how external reaction differs from internal. I was taken inside the character’s mind, making me feel like I knew them. Warts and all.
