REVIEW – PLAYER by Staci Hart


He’s a player.

He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he’ll play me with the ease of a virtuoso.

Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?

I’m his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick up lines? I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick.

But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again.

There’s so much I don’t know.

Like the fact that I’m only a bet.

But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through.

And I’m the fool who fell in love with him

*****Patty’s Review*****

*****FOUR STARS*****
{ARC Generously Provided by Author}

The girl who had hidden her body from me had gone, replaced by a woman who wanted to be seen. Those places she hated were forgotten in the safety of my arms—she knew I wouldn’t betray her. She knew I wouldn’t make her feel anything but perfect and desired.



This was my ”try a new author” book and I was happy that the story ended up being pretty entertaining. PLAYER is another modern-day twist on the play, ”Pygmalion” . The Heroine, Val, is a sweet and socially awkward woman with a size 16 curvaceous body. Sam, is her secret crush and he’s the epitome of male perfection. Most of society would never imagine these two as a couple and that’s what made this story so endearing.

Sam and Val find themselves thrown together for a month under circumstances that I won’t elaborate on because I’m going to try to keep this review brief. Sam offers to help Val build her confidence and to give her tips on flirting with the opposite sex. Never does he try to change her appearance or her personality. Throughout the story, he tries to get her to see how he views her. To Sam, she is one of the most beautiful women he’s ever known, but years of bullying has shattered Val’s self-confidence.

While they carry on this friendship for nearly a month, their true feelings for each other start to surface. But will Sam’s secret end up tearing the two apart?

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 4
Heroine: 4.5
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 4.5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 4
