Parker Brady is perfectly happy to make a mess of his life after his best friend, Samantha, left him. He felt betrayed by his most trusted friend, and now he doesn’t care about anyone anymore. The only thing that matters to him is getting girls.
The two are not so thrilled when they meet after years of being away. Old grudges resurface from the past.
Will Samantha and Parker restore their broken friendship? Or will something else rise from its ruins?”
pooled ink Review:
Thank you to the publisher for sending me a copy to review!
This book was definitely a fluff story but sometimes that’s just what you need. A cute little burst of sunshine after reading stacks of dark, serious books, or after listening to five minutes of the news. Sometimes a cute fluffy love story that puts a smile on your face despite any cheesiness or clichés is simply what the doctor ordered.
This book was pretty short, rather straightforward, and not anything new in the realm of romance. However that’s what I loved about it. It was simple, genuine, and you couldn’t help but fall in love with the leading couple.
Was it predictable? Yes. Were all the dialogue and scenarios realistic? No. But did it make me smile and feel a bit silly happy when I finished it? Absolutely.
If you’re in the mood for some light reading that will put you in a sunnier place then this book is a good choice.
Player’s Game is a delightful bite-sized tale about friendship and true love. Simple yet genuine it will have you smiling despite yourself.
