The Cover: I like this cover, I think it would be even better if it showed the model’s face but I really like the stance and the vibe it gives off to the viewer. B+
Basics: Filthy Player was released on October 9th 2017 and is 261 pages long. Genre wise Filthy Player belongs to sports, sports romance, contemporary romance.
Description: The Raleigh Rough Riders are back, and this time Super Bowl Quarterback Beaux Hale finds himself playing the most important game of his life.
Every woman knows Beaux Hale is nothing but a player. Yet the first time he walks into Paige Halloway’s restaurant and flashes his sexy grin, she feels a heat between them spark. Too bad he opens his mouth and ruins it.
He may think his money, fame, and sexy looks will attract any woman—but he’s wrong.
Paige doesn’t have time for a man. She’s too busy keeping a roof over her head and taking care of her father to care about relationships.
Lucky for Beaux, he’s a man who’s ready to use all the plays at his disposal. He didn’t bring his team a Super Bowl victory by giving up at the first block in his path—and Paige Halloway has just become his new long-game.
Beaux also knows that sometimes, in order to win and claim your prize, you have to get a little bit filthy.
Overall thoughts: I was really happy and a bit shocked at how much I enjoyed Filthy Player! I am not a big sports (especially football) person so I didn’t know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. Stacey Lynn is seriously one of the best authors to mix real life issues with contemporary romance. I read so many romance books and although I enjoy and love them…a lot of what happens in those books doesn’t happen in real life. That is okay because that’s the whole point of reading, to forget real life and dream for a bit, but it’s also nice to read something and know that what’s going on in the book is real life.
Paige is a great leading lady, she’s driven, loyal and hardworking woman who just wants to make ends meet and take care of her Dad. She’s given up a lot for her Dad but she doesn’t mind taking care of him and I really just adored her for being so protective over her dad. Beau is perfection, he is literally every woman’s dreamboat in one way or another. Some people like cocky, silly men while others like the rich, athletically fit men and there are some readers who just want to read about a character that is caring and understanding. Well…Beaux is a combination of those three traits.
Paige and Beaux have great chemistry and I really enjoyed reading about them. Paige had so many responsibility and it was hard for her to really let herself have fun or settle down. Beaux wanted that for her and I just really liked the book’s flow of their relationship and how he really tried to make things work between them.
Filthy Player has seriously been one of my favorite reads for the end of 2017 and I’m excited to read the rest of the Rough Riders series!
