His challenge? Make her fall in love with him.
Her challenge? Play the player.
Until life changes the rules of the game.
Maddie Stevens hated Braden Carter on sight. Arrogant, egotistical, and the playboy of the University of California, Berkeley, he's everything her brother Pearce has taught her to despise. So why, when the girls challenge her to play the player, doesn't she say no? She doesn't know either.
Braden wanted fiery little Maddie the second he laid eyes on her - and he'd do anything to have her, hence why he's agreed to make her fall in love with him. After all, it's the only way he'll get what he wants. Sex.
But, as Braden discovers, there's more to the girl from Brooklyn than he ever imagined - and he can't help but care about the broken girl behind those pretty green eyes.
Maddie finds Braden isn't just a walking erection - he actually has feelings. He can be sweet, funny and his good looks don't exactly hurt. That means trouble - but when her brother Pearce turns up in Berkeley begging for her help, she realises Braden and Pearce aren't so alike anymore.
And maybe, just maybe, they're exactly what each other needs.
**New Adult Contemporary Romance. Not recommended for readers under the age of 17 due to sexual situations, strong language, and heavy subject matter**
This felt like it was written by a teenager. I want my $ back.
Needs more research
I don't know how much the author knows about northern California but her description is inaccurate. I don't know many beaches in Berkeley but most people go to telegraph ave to hang out or Oakland or sf. The weather is mostly cloudy and would be amazing for an 80 degree day. The water is freezing so no surfing or swimming occur without a wetsuit. Oh and Berkeley/Oakland area is filled with drug users and dealers especially at UC Berkeley. It's a pet peeve and where I am from. What this author is describing is southern California.
Loved every second of this book <3 I've read it twice!
