Play With Me
(Grover Beach Team #1)
Anna Katmore 

First - The Blurb:

What if you had to do the one thing you hated most to get the guy you loved to notice you?

Ryan Hunter’s parties are legend. And tonight she’s going to be there.

Lisa Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she’s a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Lisa craves, she’s just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she’s prepared to play ball to get her man.

The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school… Ryan Hunter.

Second - The Tease:

Suddenly his lips twitched.
"I can feel you staring at me," he said in the softest wake-up voice I'd ever heard. "I only hope you're a girl and not one of the drunken guys."
My breath caught in my chest. I jerked my hand back from him. Not taking his arm away from his face yet, he reached down with his other hand and slowly ran his palm over my naked thigh in the direction of my butt.
"Yep, definitely female," he purred.
In panic, I held his hand in place. "Move another inch, Hunter, and you're a dead man."

I picked this little gem up from Amazon when it was free. (It may still be free... not sure).

Lisa is in love with her best friend Tony... or so she thinks. When he returns from soccer camp with a girlfriend in tow, her jealousy rises to the surface. Thinking that the best way to win his heart back is by joining his soccer team, she does just that. Unfortunately though, she's not exactly the best player.

Under the guise of trying to help her, the team captain - Ryan (aka Hunter) - steps in by offering to give her private training sessions. But Ryan has his own agenda, and as the story unwinds, this soon becomes clear.

This was a light hearted, fun read and definitely held my attention. If you're looking for something that can be consumed in an afternoon and isn't too serious, then this might be the read for you.

My rating: 4 out of 5
