Blurb (from Goodreads):

Let the game begin…

After a tragic accident which leaves her tormented by guilt, Chloe Newman accepts a scholarship to study a St. Joseph’s University. Traveling from England to Texas, the last thing she expects is to meet the schools charming quarterback on her first night. However, Parker Mitchell is a player both on and off the field.

Parker is immediately fascinated by Chloe and, after a rocky start, they manage to find a way to make their relationship work despite interference from others on campus, including Parkers jealous ex, and the ghosts that haunt Chloe’s conscience. But, the real test comes when they visit Parker’s family over Christmas break and he finds himself being pulled back into their lifestyle…


Player was such an enjoyable read! I enjoyed it from the beginning till the very end.

Chloe believes she isn’t entitled to any fun after an incident turns her life upside down. With the push from her parents, she finally decides to pursue college where she meets the ultimate player of St. Joseph’s University. Parker doesn’t do relationships but something about Chloe makes him want to want more. What happens when these two people with opposite ends begins to fall for each other?

The plot was thoroughly enjoyable! This was a typical NA read but I loved how it was all executed. Chloe isn’t an introvert but she isn’t an outgoing person as well. She still has nightmares about the incident which happened with her. I absolutely loved how she slowly came out of her shell and learned to forgive herself. I liked the chemistry between Chloe and Parker. Their relationship slowly developed but I would have loved some more angst between them but nonetheless I enjoyed it.

Parker is a great character. I loved how he treated Chloe and the fact that they both made each other a better person. In fact, all the other characters were pretty great as well and I loved every one of them and I also loved how flawed they were. I enjoyed reading about the drama surrounding their lives. I am very excited to read the next book in the series which is about Riley, Chloe’s best friend and roommate and Cameron. But more than that I am intrigued to read Dawson and Payton’s story, I sooo hope we get their story soon!

Overall, Player was a fun and light-hearted read! I enjoyed the plot and the characters were pretty awesome. The writing was smooth and easy to read and the pace was even throughout the book. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series!

Recommend it?
