 *Read Excerpt*


Ryan Hunter kissed more girls than he cares to remember. But the only one he ever wanted is in love with his best friend.

Watching Liza Matthews’ obsession with Tony Mitchell is a torture Ryan conceals from everyone. Until after a five-week soccer camp, where Tony gets involved with someone else, things suddenly take a different turn. Ryan knows if he doesn’t make a move now and grab his chance, he might never get another. 

Asked by Tony to distract Liza, Ryan is only too happy. He subtly seduces her first into his soccer team and later on to his party. He does all in his power to make her see that he’s not just an insufferable playboy but a guy who really cares about her.

Some one-on-one soccer training, a passionate kiss — things seem to be going the way he wants. Except Ryan didn’t reckon on his best friend showing up at the worst possible moment and destroying everything…



Have you ever had a thing for someone for so long? Someone who doesn’t even notice you exist, yet you know almost everything about that person? And what happens if you finally get a chance to be with that person?

This book was quite a pleasant surprise. I already know the story through Liza’s POV. But still, this book made me fall in love with the story and Ryan so much more. Having a glimpse of Ryan’s side of the story, it made me understand why he was judged as an ass and all that. I loved how Piper Shelly made this book different from Play with Me. I sure loved this even more than the first book!

In this book, I learned more about Ryan Hunter and his secret crush on Liza Mathews. It made me fall in love with him even more because it’s really rare for a guy to love a girl secretly and can wait that long for her. Ryan is really a guy worth fighting for, he may be a jerk to others because his heart belongs to only one girl and when he finally got her, he won’t ever let her go.

Piper Shelly made a greater job in this book. While I liked Liza’s POV during Play with Me, I loved Ryan’s more. His thoughts made me understand things and I somewhat felt like I had the chance to get a glimpse inside of a guy’s mind. This is seriously a must read! :)

    I agree with you on every point! I loved reading Ryan’s POV more than Lizzie’s. Great review. :)
