"From the great cover to the intriguing synopsis, Lisa Brown Roberts brings a whole new twist to your typical good girl vs player type-of-story." -Jackie, Jackie's Book World

Trina Clemons needed the money. Why else would she - the most organized, prepared student in school - spend the summer as a nanny and partner with the biggest slacker ever? Now she's ready to tackle nannyhood with her big binder of research and schedules. Just don't ask her about the secret job of "fixing" the bad habits of a certain high school player...

Slade Edmunds prefers easy hook-ups, and Trina is definitely not his type. She's all structure and rules, while Slade wants to just have fun. Fortunately, Trina has no idea about the bet Slade made with his best friend that he can totally get her to unwind by the end of summer...

Then the weirdest thing happens. There's chemistry. A lot of it.
But nothing gets between a boy and a girl like a big, fat secret...

Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book contains a straight/gay BFF bromance, an irresistibly kissable bad boy, a good girl who wants to be kissed, some epic babysitting fails, and the occasional f-bomb.

Review

"I loved the characters, loved the conflict, and was very satisfied with the romance. The author did a fantastic job making me love her people." -Shannon (aka The Tale Temptress)

"You will laugh, you will sigh and you will swoon. *Playing the Player* will play with your emotions... and you will love every moment of it because Slade and Trina are worth it."  - Paula M. of Her Bookish Thoughts

"I think Lisa Brown Roberts did a fantastic job keeping these high schoolers true to themselves and true to actual high school students in *Playing the Player*. That does not mean that they were perfect. Not by a long shot, but they were just like so many high schoolers that I knew growing up." -Michelle from Book Briefs

"I am absolutely and totally in love with the characters; the main ones, the minor ones, the whole story, just everything." - Nicole
 
"For the love of all things adorable, swoony, and chick flick-like, you need to read Playing the Player! It was adorable from the very beginning to the very end."- Katie from Reading Transforms

Playing the Player was beyond adorable. I couldn't stop smiling or keep the laughter contained that kept bubbling out of me. I honestly can't remember the last time a book made me laugh this much.
