Brief synopsis: Maddie hated Braden on sight – he’s arrogant, smug and sinfully hot. It’s because of this her friends have challenge her to play him at his own game; Play the player.
Braden wants what he can’t have and right now, Princess Maddie is at the top of that list. It’s because of this his friends challenge him to make her fall in love with him.
As the couple spend time together, each attempting to win their own challenges, they each soon discover there’s more to the other than they originally thought.
What I thought: This book is probably more suited to the younger end of the young/new adult market but nevertheless, I still enjoyed it.
The story was a bit predictable in parts, but in a good way. I think it was inevitable from the start that the games would end they way they did – the way I was hoping they would! Brooklyn Maddie, and the addition of her dad and Abbi, added the unknown element of the story which kept it interesting.
Overall, a brilliant book for just 99p!
