I’ve been waiting for Hunter’s book FOREVER and it’s finally here. This was one of my most anticipated books in this series and I had no clue how I would end up feeling about it. First, Hunter’s attitude the past few books has been a downhill slope so, would I like him? And second, the fact that the heroine was dating someone else at the beginning of this book so, would it be too soon for me? Rest assured, Elle Kennedy knows just how to take a sticky situation and make you fall in love with it.
Hunter is starting off the season with a vow of celibacy because he needs to make sure he doesn’t let the team down and not having his hook-ups interfering with his game is important to him. So when he meets Demi and they have to work on a project together he knows it’ll be strictly friendly. Plus she has a boyfriend so she’s extremely off limits. I loved the time this takes to develop a friendship between them. The fact that Demi and Hunter’s personalities seemed to be just perfect for each other was also very important.
If I could complain about one thing is the fact that I didn’t like how much pressure Demi puts on Hunter to give up on his vow of celibacy just because she was now ready to have sex. Also, there’s an unexpected scene towards the end of this book that may be triggering for some people (mental health and suicide) so I figured it was right to mention it.
THE PLAY is everything I expect from Elle Kennedy. Fun, flirty, steamy, packed full of sexual tension and great banter. An entertaining read from start to finish. When can we have the next one?

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
