YA: Contemporary Romance: Play with Me

Ryan Hunter's parties are legend. And tonight she's going to be there.

Liza Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she's a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Liza craves, she's just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she's prepared to play ball to get her man.

The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school. Ryan Hunter.

Here's a little teaser...


HE’D NEVER TRIED to kiss me, even when we practically shared the same bed half of the summer. And then he was gone. For five tormenting weeks. I thought I was going to die after day two.
But today, my torture was over. Today, Anthony Mitchell returned. My best friend and future husband.
Not like I had informed him about that yet, but it wasn’t necessary. Everyone knew it, and I couldn’t wait to trade my last name, Matthews, for his. Tony and I had been hanging out since kindergarten. We were inseparable, except for the few hours every day when he had soccer training and I had—well, some time to write how much I loved him in my diary for the sixteen millionth time...

Well then you're in for a treat, Piper Shelly is offering half of Play with Me as a free read, so head on over to her website for this wonderful offer.

I've read this book, and wow, what a great story.
My review:

In this novella, sixteen-year-old Liza is so focused on her childhood crush that she's spends her entire life dreaming of her best friend Tony returning her feelings when the impossible happens and he falls for another girl. She's prepared to pull out all stakes to get him back and almost misses what's right in front of her.
The gorgeous, Ryan Hunter...
Okay, to say any more would ruin the story. The dynamics between H/h are funny and sweet.
Ryan Hunter is one yummy hero :)
And the scene with the lemon--phew hot for a YA, but so fitting. It will keep you glued to your seat until the very the end.
