#Player ARC review + Giveaway + Playlist

Title: #Player
Series: Hashtag Series
Author: Cambria Hebert
Genre: NA Contemp/College Romance
Release Date: March 9, 2015
Hiya everyone!
#Player is live!  Went live a day early, in fact!  So exciting! Romeo and Rimmel’s story is complete, though the series will continue on with #Selfie featuring Braeden.

Players gotta play.

Hate is like a poison. It contaminates everything.
So does doubt.
Even though I deny what I overheard, even though I insist it isn’t true, the seed of doubt has been planted. I can’t help but be tormented with the endless what-if’s that have taken over our lives.
Romeo and I were happy in love. The future stretched before us brighter than any star in the darkest sky. Now everything is broken. Literally broken. Romeo’s entire career is at stake, my entire future is threatened… and my past?
It’s coming back to haunt me.
To haunt us.
Romeo says we’re in this together and right now the only sure thing is us. But how far can a love so new be pushed? The lengths we will have to go to save each other puts everything at risk.

Romeo is a #player but how much of the game can one person play?

 My Review:


(For those who haven’t yet read #Nerd and #Hater, there will be some spoilers)

So much love for #Player.  So.  Much.  So many feels. Player picks up right where Hater left off, at the Hospital with Romeo and Rimmel dealing with the aftermath of Zach’s attack.  Kicks you right in the gut with all the feels right from the beginning.  Seriously, it’s rough.  Many tears were shed here during the reading of Player.  Don’t worry, there’s plenty happy tears as well as sad ones.  There are books you read, books that speak to you, and books you live.  Nerd and Hater spoke to me deeply, but I really lived Player.  It sucked me in and took me for a ride in the world of Alpha U.  I have some major love for this world and the characters.  Some people (who clearly don’t understand my bookish ways) might say that I’m overly attached to a certain #Nerd and her #Player and a certain BBFL.

Braeden makes an entrance in true Braeden fashion, and right off the bat he made me cry.  Cannot wait for his story.  Anymore than I could wait for Player.  It was well worth the wait, as I’ve come to expect from Cambria.  As I said, there were tears and feels.  Giggles and one particular heart-stopping moment.  Literally.  I swear my heart stopped.  I was so in the moment.  Had to literally set down my Kindle a couple of times just for a breather.  We see Rome and Rim struggle to find their footing in more ways than one, Braeden and Ivy clash, the resolution of the Zach situation, secrets and lies and truths that could ruin everything for everyone.  All and all, Player was everything I hoped for and so much more.  I think we all need a Romeo.  And a Braeden, too.  Rim’s one lucky, lucky girl.  Even when she’s having a bad day, which are fairly plentiful throughout. But don’t take my word for it! Go read it yourself.  After all, if you review it this week, Cambria offers a very nice reward. (See below). Also, go check out the giveaway.  It’s pretty sa-weet!


Cambria Hebert is a bestselling novelist of more than twenty books. She went to college for a bachelor’s degree, couldn’t pick a major, and ended up with a degree in cosmetology. So rest assured her characters will always have good hair.
Besides writing, Cambria loves a caramel latte, staying up late, sleeping in, and watching movies. She considers math human torture and has an irrational fear of chickens (yes, chickens). You can often find her running on the treadmill (she’d rather be eating a donut), painting her toenails (because she bites her fingernails), or walking her chorkie (the real boss of the house).
Cambria has written within the young adult and new adult genres, penning many paranormal and contemporary titles. Her favorite genre to read and write is romantic suspense. A few of her most recognized titles are: Text, Torch, Tryst, Masquerade, and Recalled.
