Series: The Game, #1
Her challenge? Play the player.
Until life changes the rules of the game.
Maddie Stevens hated Braden Carter on sight. Arrogant, egotistical, and the playboy of the University of California, Berkeley, he's everything her brother Pearce has taught her to despise. So why, when the girls challenge her to play the player, doesn't she say no? She doesn't know either.
Braden wanted fiery little Maddie the second he laid eyes on her - and he'd do anything to have her, hence why he's agreed to make her fall in love with him. After all, it's the only way he'll get what he wants. Sex.
But, as Braden discovers, there's more to the girl from Brooklyn than he ever imagined - and he can't help but care about the broken girl behind those pretty green eyes.
Maddie finds Braden isn't just a walking erection - he actually has feelings. He can be sweet, funny and his good looks don't exactly hurt. That means trouble - but when her brother Pearce turns up in Berkeley begging for her help, she realises Braden and Pearce aren't so alike anymore.
And maybe, just maybe, they're exactly what each other needs.
I won this book and the second in the series from Megan @ Paperbook Princess. I LOVED this book! It was so fun, romantic, funny, and heartwarming. Maddie and Braden are perfect for each other, and you figure that out right away. However, it takes them a while longer to figure it out. I laughed and cried for the characters in this wonderful novel. If you want a good chick-flick novel, definitely get this!!!! I'm going to tell all my friends and family to read this. Its so fun, and I immediately started the second in the series when I finished this. Hart's writing style is very clean and straight to the point. I love that there's not tons of extra words where there doesn't need to be. But there are still enough details to make it a great novel! I can't wait to finish the other book and read anything else she writes!
