He needs a great idea

She can provide it—but at what cost?

The battle lines are drawn when army medic turned EMT Ava Andrews enters a contest devised by San Francisco entrepreneur Kyle Quinn. The first responder isn’t just competing for a tempting grand prize. She’s fighting her attraction to the self-made millionaire…and losing the war. But private and professional boundaries blur when a breach of trust threatens Ava’s future with Kyle.

 

 

Guest Post – Family Game Night by Cari Lynn Webb

In my new release, Ava’s Prize-a Harlequin Heartwarming sweet romance-my heroine, Ava Andrews plays a game called: You Know What We Need with her family and friends.

Here is an explanation from ten-year old, Ben Sawyer-the son of Ava’s best friend and paramedic partner, Dan Sawyer.

Confidence tipped the boy’s chin up and strengthened his voice. “My aunt and I are inventors, too.”

“That’s nothing.” Ava waved her hands between them as if trying to wipe Ben’s words from the air. “That’s just a game we play.”

Kyle liked the tinge on Ava’s cheeks. “What’s the game?”

Ben rubbed his hands together. “It’s called You Know What We Need?”

Kyle knew what he needed. He needed another million-dollar idea. And he needed it yesterday. Still, he wanted to share Ben’s enthusiasm, feel that same innocent excitement for something. He’d felt it once with the Medi-Spy. “How do you play?”

“Someone says, ‘You know what we need?’ and then tells everyone their idea. We discuss the idea, then vote if we like it or not. You get points if everyone likes it.” Ben’s eyes widened, and horror lowered his voice to secret-telling level. “But if we vote it down, you lose double the points.”

“You have rules?”

“Every good game has rules.” Ben looked at him as if Kyle shouldn’t ask such ridiculous questions. “It needs to be fair.”

Kyle nodded. His contest would be fair, too. But could it work? Could one simple contest keep him from financial ruin? “What are the rules?”

“Everyone gets a turn. You can tell your idea anytime. Any place, except church and anytime Dad tells you to be quiet. Otherwise you can’t interrupt.” Ben held up his fingers and counted. “This is the most important one—you can’t make fun of an idea.”

“What does the winner get?” Kyle asked. A family game was all fine and good. But his contest needed a winner. In a viable contest, there needed to be a prize.

“Bragging rights.” Dan’s voice was matter-of-fact, as if nothing else mattered.

Family game night is also a huge part of our family. I have two teenage daughters and they like to remind me and family and friends that I wouldn’t let them win even when they were five years old. We might be a little competitive in our house, but I can also say that we’ve enjoyed many nights of laughter and fun during an intense game of Monopoly or Sorry. We also like to play cards: Five Crowns, Thirty-One and Uno all rank high on our list of favorites. Early favorites were Clue Junior, Candyland and SpongeBob SquarePants Operation.

For car rides, carpools, waiting rooms and restaurants, we’ve relied on I Spy and Twenty Questions. More recently, Would You Rather, Punch Buggy and If I questions have filled the time with more laughs, on-going conversations and debates.

We like to include family and friends in our game nights as often as possible. And like Ava and her friends, everyone wants to win, if only to earn bragging rights until the next game night.

So, tell me – do you have a favorite game we should add to our family game nights?

Happy Reading!
