He’s the player of all players…
Newly broke girl Alexandria Asher just wants to live a normal life. After her parents are sent to prison on embezzlement charges, she enrolls in college under her mother’s maiden name and tries her best to pretend she’s someone else.
Tristan Prescott is everything Alex is trying to avoid. A seemingly egotistical, lazy, rich jerk, she dumps her beer on his head when he comes on to her one night at a party. This only spurs Tristan into action. He loves nothing more than a challenge. And the beautiful Alex is exactly the type of challenge that intrigues him.
Despite her reluctance, Alex finds herself quickly involved with Tristan. Underneath that playboy exterior is a good guy, a sweet and sexy guy who she is undoubtedly falling for. What they both don’t realize is the actions of Alex’s parents are the reason for so much tragedy in Tristan’s family. And when Tristan discovers who Alex and her family really is, can he forgive and forget?
SARAH'S 4 STAR REVIEW:
I really enjoyed Slow Play by Monica Murphy. This is the third book in her The Rules series and focuses on bad boy Tristan. This book had me sucked in from the very first page.
Alexandria Asher just wants to live a normal life now that she is on her own since her parents are in prison for ebezzlement charges. She enrolls in college and tries hard to be a different person. She goes to a party one night with all of her friends and this is where she first meets the arrogant and cocky Tristan Prescott. She is disgusted with him from the very beginning and tries to avoid him as much as possible.
Tristan Prescott is a complete manwhore and has no interest in a long term relationship like his best friends have. He firmly believes in the one and done rule his friends decided on years ago. When he spots Alexandria at a Halloween party he tries to use his charm to get her into bed but she puts him in his place. He is quite shocked when she turns him down because everyone wants to sleep with him. There is something different about Alexandria and he finds himself wanting to spend time with her. Will Tristan decide that it might be worth giving a relationship a try if he can do it with a girl like Alexandria or will he continue with his one and done theory?
"You feel it," he whispers. "I touch you and it's like electricity sparks between us. I look into your eyes and I feel like I'm f#cking drowning. And when I kiss you, I never want to stop."
I loved the connection between Alexandia and Tristan. I enjoyed the push and pull of their relationship. The secondary characters added lots of depth to the storyline. It was fun catching up with the characters from the prevoius books. This book took me on quite an emotional rollercoater and I loved every second of it. I can't wait to see what Monica is working on next!!
