Being labelled a player never stopped me from being successful with women. Until I met Truly Harbury.
Truly was the first girl who ever turned me down.
The first female friend I ever had.
And she might just be the first woman I ever fall in love with.
When an emergency means she needs my help running her family's charity, I'm happy to introduce her to the glitz and glamour of the London business world—taking her to dinners, coaching her through speeches, zipping up the sexy evening gown I helped her pick out.
The more time we spend together, the more I want to convince her I'm not a man to avoid, that we're not as unsuited as she believes.
She sees herself as the book-reading, science-loving introvert while I'm the dangerous, outgoing, charmer.
She thinks I love parties and people whereas she prefers pajamas and a takeaway.
What she doesn't realize is that I like everything about her from the way her smile lights up a room, her curves light up my imagination, and especially the way her lips taste when coated with tequila.
Truly Harbury is the first woman I ever fell in love with. I just need to know if I'm still in the friend zone or whether this player has found his happily ever after.

Review: International Player
International Player by Louise Bay is another standalone romance with a gorgeous hero and an exceptional heroine. Told in dual POV between Truly and Noah, this story is quirky, romantic, emotional and has a great happy ending.
Truly has always been the Yin to her sisters Yang. They each have areas in which they excel and Truly is perfectly satisfied staying in her box. But when her sister has to take a step back from their foundation and fundraising and speech giving Truly has to step up. Something she has always allowed her sister to excel in as she is just not good at it. At all. So when her brother-in-law suggests that Noah step in and help Truly with her confidence and fundraising she can't say no - even if spending more time with him, in close proximity is the last thing her heart needs.
Noah is not a guy who commits long term to relationships. While not really a player, he isn't commitment centric. But when he spends time in Truly's company again he remembers how close they were before he left for the States and is definitely ready to rekindle their friendship - and maybe even more.
Romantic & sweet, steamy and a little angsty this was another great read from a must-read author for me. Enjoy!
