✾ Synopsis ✾

The Good Girl Vs. The Player

Round one begins...

Trina Clemons needed the money. Why else would she - the most organized, prepared student in school - spend the summer as a nanny and partner with the biggest slacker ever? Now she's ready to tackle nannyhood with her big binder of research and schedules. Just don't ask her about the secret job of "fixing" the bad habits of a certain high school player...

Slade Edmunds prefers easy hook-ups, and Trina is definitely not his type. She's all structure and rules, while Slade wants to just have fun. Fortunately, Trina has no idea about the bet Slade made with his best friend that he can totally get her to unwind by the end of summer...

Then the weirdest thing happens. There's chemistry. A lot of it.

But nothing gets between a boy and a girl like a big, fat secret...

✿ My Review ✿

Trina Clemons and Slade Edmunds couldn't be more different: she follows all the rules, is extremely organized and loves schedules; he is a slacker, a player and loves to go with the flow. But now they are going to spend the summer together as the nannies of two 5 year-olds.
Although at first their partnership seems to be difficult, as the time passes they get to know each other and a relationship starts to blossom.
But they are keeping secrets from each other, both from their pasts and how they got the nanny job.
How will they react when they find out the truth?

Playing the Player is an awesome YA book. The story is very captivating and I couldn't stop reading it. It has everything a good YA book must have: drama, angst and lots of funny and awkward moments.

Trina and Slade are total opposites, but they really complement each other. I loved the chemistry between them.
A tragic event in Trina's past made her a very cautious person that likes to have a plan to the unexpected. She loves her mother and to fight for the underdogs. I loved how she started to let loose and have more confidence in herself after spending time with Slade and the kids.
Slade is a bad boy slacker and a player. He had his heart broken by a girl before and now he doesn't believe in falling in love, but he has a big heart. He becomes more responsible after spending time with Trina and the kids and I loved to see how much he changed.
Max and Gillian are awesome! I loved them! Like Trina and Slade, they're total opposites but they're best friends.

Overall, Playing the Player is an awesome YA book. Lisa Brown Roberts wrote a fantastic story that keeps the reader wanting more and created great characters that make the reader connect with them.
Can't wait read more of her work!

✿ The Author ✿

Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn't recovered from the teenage trauma of nearly tweezing off her eyebrows and penciling them in for an entire school year. This and other painful memories inspire her to write books in which girls big on wit and heart earn happy endings with swoony guys... eventually.

Her almost forever home is Colorado, though she occasionally pines for the days when she lived within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. Her house is full of books, boys, four-­legged prima donnas, and lots of laughter.
