Payton always had one rule she lived by, no boyfriends until after college. No one seemed to agree with her, even her own mother who had her at age sixteen. Returning to school after an accident that flipped Payton’s world upside down left her feeling out of control. Holding on to her rule seemed to be her only lifeline.
Josh had been letting the past rule his life for too long. Finally being at school, he’d become his own man, and he’d been putting all that behind him. Just when he thought he had it all put together, life got crazy. Not only did his ex show back up, but Josh also found he couldn’t get Payton Whitmore out of his head.
Once Josh convinces Payton to give him a shot, she’s so closed off that he wonders if it’s even worth it. Josh can tell there’s something special about Payton though, and as soon as he goes all in, he’s ready to show her that some rules are made to be broken.
**Playing by the Rules is the first book in the Portwood Brothers series. It's a full length novel (approximately 80,000 words and 466 printed pages).
Needs a new editor
This book is entertaining enough with relatively likable characters, but it is riddled with typographical errors. I lost count of the number of times "your" and "you're" we're used interchangeably and almost inevitably incorrectly. A good editor or better proofreading would fix that. The story was enjoyable enough to warrant more stars if the grammatical errors hadn't distracted so much while reading.
