Players gotta play.
Romeo is a #player but how much of the game can one person play?
(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!
