A short, sweet novella.
Ryan Hunter's parties are legend. And tonight she's going to be there.
Liza Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she's a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Liza craves, she's just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she's prepared to play ball to get her man.
The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school. Ryan Hunter.
5 of 5 Play With Me
Play With Me was such a great story about first loves and first kisses and true love and friendship. This story was a quick read and I wanted more but when I found out there is going to be a book from Hunter's POV I just about had a heart attack and when you read this book you see why. There was so much going on in my head when I read this book because the story flowed so smooth that at times I had to say WTF when one of the characters acted up.
So the low down is this Liza Matthews has loved her best friend and partner in crime Tony since she was in Kindergarten. She has done every thing with him and they have spent night after night with each other. Yes they are best friends but Liza seriously loves Tony and she is head over heels with him and she decides that this is going to be the summer because she is going to tell him how she feels. Well let's just say that it does not work out that way but what does happen is EPIC because Liza is about to find out what kind of best friend Tony is and what it feels like to have a broken heart only to discover that the person you thought you loved all this time is actually not the person you REALLY love.
This is where Tony's best friend and Soccer Captain Hunter Ryan comes in. Lord he is hot sex on a platter and he plays soccer my favorite sport in the whole wide world! See Hunter has a secret and when that secret comes out Liza and Tony's life and Hunter's will change in the blink of an eye. What happens when Liza and Tony and Hunter's worlds collide and the secrets are revealed and the lies are uncovered and hearts are broken and fists start flying? Well you have to read it to find out!

I’m a cool girl with a passion for writing.
The genres you’ll find me hanging out at are contemporary and paranormal YA, but I’m also snooping into some adult paranormal right now. All of them romances…of course.
I’m an Austrian lass—totally uncomplicated and up to anything fun.
I grew up in Vienna, not by free will but because my parents decided to move there when I was only 4 years old. I. Hated. The. City. Everything about it. So right after graduation I moved back to Upper Austria, where I settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop.
I’ve been a storyteller all my life. Already in kindergarten, I came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. My teacher would call me a liar. I call it the cornerstone of my writing career.
People always told me you can’t make a living with being an author. So when my first novella PLAY WITH ME came out and shot straight to the stars within the first week, I was totally dumbstruck. Took me a while to realize what was happening, LOL.
And the personal stuff:
At the (awesome) age of seventeen, I met the love of my life. But he was a playboy, and I was so not going to be his next trophy. It took him another four years of fighting for me until I finally decided to give that “couple-thing” with him a shot. I’m now married to this man. ;-)
We have an eleven-year-old son, and together we travel a lot…although I sometimes wish the trips were shorter because I can’t wait to get back to my laptop and my many stories. Unless we’re in Disneyland. No stress to go home then…
If you still want to know more about me, my FAQ page is the right address for you. ;-)
