Player by Staci Hart
He’s a player.
He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he’ll play me with the ease of a virtuoso.
Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?
I’m his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick up lines? I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick.
But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again.
There’s so much I don’t know.
Like the fact that I’m only a bet.
But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through.
And I’m the fool who fell in love with him.
I cannot even begin to convey how much I adored Val and Sam. The plot, the chemistry, the humor, it was just all spot on. It was pure Rom/Com gold.
Get comfortable for a bit, because I’m about to shamelessly gush over how much I loved Val. She was perfection. There was honestly not one thing I didn’t love about her. I’m going to get real for a second about why I connected to her so much. As a curvy girl I’ve lived her struggle for most of my adult life. Self doubt can creep in and it can gets hard sometimes, but the way she pushed through insecurities had me thinking, Yes girl, you deserve it all, you are worthy and beautiful and as bold as that red lip stick you wear. Like I said before she was perfect.
I was equally smitten with Sam. Staci writes the best “good men” and I am a sucker for good men in books. I loved how he saw Val for who she was. He helped her find that bit of confidence she needed and he found some in himself as well.
These two together were adorably awkward , sexy, and just plain fun to read. These kind of stories are always make me so happy, and exactly why I love to read. It’s always great to find a book that speaks to you, it’s even better when you find an author that can do that constantly through her stories. Hart is certainly that for me. Bravo, I absolutely loved it.
