Book Review: Trick Play

 



Everyone in Heston Lake is obsessed with Heston U’s hockey team except me. I’d rather do a live reading from the spiciest romance on my bookshelf nude than talk hockey.

I could ignore my college town transforming into a sports bar during hockey season, but there’s no escaping the players fueling their obsession. My twin brother…and his best friend on the team.

#22. Alex Keller. Talented winger. The handsome hotshot player every girl on campus dreams of.

And my fake boyfriend for the next two weeks.

His idea, 
not mine.

I doubt he knew I existed—until he stops the football team from teasing me. All it takes is a pet name and his strong arm around me. Playing along is my only option.

I’m ready to go back to my side of the divide between nerds like me and athletes like Alex, but he refuses. He’s determined to protect me for real, even if our relationship is fake.

The only problem is…he’s too good at pretending. Our act fools everyone—including me.


Note: Trick Play first appeared in the Billionaires and Babes anthology. This version has been expanded with additional content.

My Review

I absolutely loved this book. I saw a lot of myself in Lainey. Being an introvert and bookworm, I prefer books better then to the company of big crowds. If you love he falls first romances with dashes of spice, then you need to pick up a copy of this book and score big!

There were times where Alex could have come off as cocky but instead, he came off as genuine. I loved that he was not afraid to show a more vulnerable side. It was not just the intimate moments that I could not get enough of between Lainey and Alex. Like the moment when Alex sweep Lainey's hair to the side and kissed her on the side of the neck...swoon.
