Blog Tour: Review of Play by Holly Roberts

Play 900


When Killian MacGregor, the hottest quarterback in the NFL, eyes the perfect pair of female legs, he spends an hour tracking the gorgeous woman in a room filled with rowdy teammates until one gets out of line.
Rebecca Cavanaugh, a long distance runner for the state team, intimidates boys and men with her quick wit and majestic height. The pre-season jock party isn’t her scene, but she’s roped into attending to provide her sister a sober ride home.

Hiding in the kitchen to avoid the athletic sex fest, a drunken thug forces Rebecca to her knees, and waves a giant ding-dong in her face. Before Rebecca can extricate herself from the hairy situation, an unknown champion saves the night. When Killian assists Rebecca off the floor, she’s stunned into silence while staring at the sexiest man alive.

Will Killian’s bad boy rep and Rebecca’s need for commitment, make this the most impossible “Play” of the season? Or, will Killian’s haunting past and need for victory destroy the most important game of his life?

“Play” is intended for readers 18+. Enjoy with caution… this book contains adult situations, erotic sex, and more balls than a girl knows what to do with.

Meet Holly

Holly Roberts Small pic
Holly S. Roberts is the bestselling author of fourteen novels, and writes under three pen names. A romantic at heart, she fell in love at the age of twelve with a boy she saw across junior high school campus. Four years later, he took notice and she never let go.
Her career in law enforcement gives her a reason to want romance, happy endings, and anything that takes her away from real life when she reads and writes. She can shoot a mean game of pool, toss back a straight shot of tequila, and recite the Gettysburg Address.
Holly lives high in the mountains in the southwest United States with her husband, Rottweiler and Chihuahua.


I dissolved into the seat of his amazing car. A low moan escaped my lips but Killian just showed his dimples and buckled me in. I wondered what he’d do if I pulled him tightly against me and sniffed… for an hour or two.
He opened his door and folded into the seat with absolute grace regardless of his size.
“Ah hell,” he muttered and turned my way. Unlatching my seatbelt, he pulled me in for the most mouthwatering kiss I’d ever had.
His lips, soft but firm, molded to mine. His tongue ran over my teeth, tasted, dipped deeper, and then plunged. He effortlessly slid out the elastic holding my hair before spreading his fingers to either side of my scalp. The kiss intensified and Killian made promises for the night ahead with his lips.
He tasted so damn good.
When he pulled back, I actually whimpered and smiled at the low rumbling growl that came from Killian’s throat. He took my lower lip between his teeth and pulled slightly before letting go. He put distance between us leaving me bereft.
“We’ll eat at my house.” He kissed my forehead, reached over, grabbed the seatbelt, and fastened me in again. My hands went to my hair as I looked around for the hair tie.
“Leave it.”
I stopped my search but couldn’t help running my fingers through the mussed tangles. Killian’s hand captured mine. “No.” He released my fingers just as fast as he verbalized the one word.
I wasn’t a pushover, didn’t have much experience with guys, but I had some. I should have argued, straightened my hair anyway, or even voiced some sort of displeasure. An electrically charged pulse shot straight to the junction of my thighs, and there I went and tried to stain his car’s upholstery.
I kept my mouth shut.

I really liked this book!

You know the saying, "Don't judge a book by its cover." well, it applies to this book. Although I understand what the author was going for, but this book needs - No, deserves a very hot ab toting, muscle bulging hunk of a man gracing the cover!

Rebecca Cavanaugh considers herself average. Average looks, average intelligence, average personality, average athletic ability. Even though she is on a full long distance running scholarship at her state university she feels ordinary. When she finds herself at a party with her self-absorbed sister only to almost be sexually assaulted but star quarterback Killian McGregor came to her rescue and drove her home.

Rebecca thinks that Killian is the sexiest man alive and she cannot stop thinking about him. So when she is interrupted in the middle of class a month later with a special delivery from Mac The Knife with tickets for her and two friends to attend his football game in the VIP skybox, she had to go.
Although she tried not to fall in love with him, but she fell hard with this chivalrous alpha male. He made it impossible not to. He did everything right. Said everything right. He was everything that she needed but never knew she wanted.

It didn't matter where we went or what we did, Killian always touched me in some small way. He desired a physical connection and seemed to take hold of my hand subconsciously. He'd done it the first night I'd meet him at the party and never stopped - Rebecca
This book gave me the warm and fuzzies, but not in a goofy way. It was full of hot steamy sex that almost melted my Kindle and had me looking over my shoulder on the couch making sure no one was looking over my shoulder at what I was reading. I think that I actually blushed a few times.

I give this book 5 super sizzling stars!!!!
