Ryan Hunter's parties are legend. And tonight she's going to be there.
Liza 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 Liza 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.
This was a very fast paced read and entertaining. Hunter was the main reason why I liked Play With Me. He was a dark and sexy character. Piper Shelly knows how to write an alpha male very well. Tony's character was also well written. I didn't know if I should love him or hate him. Sometimes I forgot about Hunter while Tony was with Liz.
I did have a few problems with play With Me, though. I know this a short story, but I felt like some aspects of the book lacked depth. For example, Liza's parents. Her mom was skimmed over most of the time, and I couldn't get a read on what kind of mother she was. I also didn't connect too well with Liza's character. She was hard to read but then again she is a teenager and I remember how confused I would get over the smallest things when I was one.
Overall, I think Play With Me was a fun and easy read. The plot was interesting enough to make me want to read more of these characters and their world.
