    Giving this a 35 4 stars As a YA readerlover I'm giving this a 4 but as a general contemporary romance I'm giving it a 35Review at Of Pens and Pages This feels like a really bad movie I said One where you just know everything's going to blow up in a huge mess at the end Trina Clemons has her job as a babysitter to adorable five year olds Max and Gillian but she's also stuck to mentor the school slackerplayer Slade Edmunds in the guise of a nannying partnership She'd rather spend her time doing something else but Slade's mom is paying additional and she needs the moneyShe's not expecting the best but she believes she can resist his charm; he's never been exactly nice to her anyway She still can't forget the fact that he gave her the nickname 'Bird Brain' when she was advocating to save the tree with the hawks And Slade Edmunds isn't the biggest fan of Trina either He thinks she's uptight and 100% serious with her binders and organizational skills Two seemingly opposite kids who have bad impressions on each other have in common than they first thought After a disastrous nannying day that ended with two crying toddlers and one crying nanny the two start anew to make their partnership work They actually get along and soon they both realize they feel an attraction that's getting hard to resistThe achiever and the school player one with a tragic backstory misunderstandings plus secrets and constant denial of feelings This alternating POV novel is as cliche as it sounds but it's what I loved about this book the most It reminded me of the books I used to read in high school where I'd end up giddy and giggly and feel like a teenager As the story progressed we got to see about Trina and Slade and a little bit of side characters like Desi and Alex Trina and Slade's best friends Max and Gillian mirrored our two nannies but these two tykes got along perfectly from the beginning 'til the endI have to say though the end felt a bit rushed and it was uite noticeable since the pace from start to somewhere near the end was uite steady compared to the end I was close to panicking when I was in the 80% mark and the conflict hasn't been properly addressed But overall I really enjoyed this story It's light sweet and cute I might read it again when I'm in the mood for a light fluffly YA novel If you're a fan of that kind of YA and stories where opposites attract you might enjoy this book Contemporary copy given by publisher in exchange for an honest review Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

    Spontaneity isn't bad It might even be epic I should've known that I'll finish this in one sitting and that I will swoon like crazy Entangled Crush can can do no wrong in my book And Playing the Player is an evidence to that Get ready girls Slade is about to intrude your very organized life by distracting you with his not so good clothing style and irresistible charm No one can be immune Trina can attest to that I have been a fan Lisa Brown Roberts ever since I read How Not To Fall In Love After reading that book I was so sure that there'll be amazing books ahead from Roberts that's why I was ecstatic when I found out about Playing the Player and let me tell you I was not disappointed at all In fact it exceeded my expectations Trina is another heroine you'll admire With her pixie fairy vibe and super uptight trait you'd she would be annoying but nooooooo I can't help but admire her whole personality I loved her even because of her character development that you will totally see throughout the story She'll go from the neat freak girl to the girl who loves spontaneity And how did that happen? Well with the help of our hero of course Oh man Slade SLADE PEOPLE SLADE You know my favorite thing about this book? Is that the love interest isn't cliche so he's not your usual dark any broody mysterious hero Everybody needs a break from that right? Slade is obnoxious a charm inducer and a swoony stud wrapped in a very bad clothing ensemble And yes you will still LOVE him to pieces The friendship between Slade and Alex who is gay is very adorable Alex was such a delight to read even though he caused some trouble between my OTP It's incredible how Roberts inserted a very little diversity in the story and yet the impact was huge The friendship is one of the huge reason why this book is different from others Even the kids that Slade and Trina are nanny ing didn't fail to crack me up They add cuteness to the already swoon worthy love story of their nannies I just wished that Trina and Slade had moments together as a couple though but other than that I have no problem with the book 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 Roberts did it again With characters that you will fall for romance and friendships that you'll swoon over Playing the Player absolutely deserves your attention

    “I wondered if this was how it felt to sell your soul to the devil I bet there were awesome cookies in hell too” Such a cute young adult book I really enjoyed reading thisthe story is extremely fun and uirky but with some serious elements and delicate topicsThe characters are very interesting and I loved reading from both Trina’s and Slade’s POV Throughout this book both main characters develop a lot and you’ll get to know their stories a bit you’ll realize that they are much complex than they seemOf coursethere are some pretty awesome supporting characters like Gilly and Maxkids that they’re babysittingAlexSlade’s best friend and DesiTrina’s best friendAndyeahnot everything goes the way Trina plannedbut she knew things would get complicated eventually “This feels like a really bad movie” I said “One where you just know everything’s going to blow up in a huge mess at the end” And so did SladeBut you’ll have to read the book to find out what happens to them Ohand SladeI would definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for a nice young adult book with a very cute romantic storyYou can read this review on BookishFever

    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 Plus it had the perfect amount of angst that pulled at my heart Playing the Player was the perfect feel good story and such a huge win Not even two weeks into this gig and it had all turned upside down and backward Trina Ironically I started out this book unsure if it was going to work for me Slade Edmunds came across as a slacker who seemed to have maturity issues and Trina Clemons was a control freak who didn't know how to let loose and have fun But I was so wrong So very wrong Because while that may have been my first impression of them I got to learn who they were I got to understand why they were the way they were since we got to alternate being in both of their heads And I absolutely loved the both of them “You’re late” she announced I looked around at the empty library “ Yeah it was crazy We had to drive in circles waiting for a parking spot Almost as bad as a concert at Red Rocks” Trina’s glare intensified and her chest shifted higher Why was I noticing this? Slade Trina got a job being a nanny to both Gillian and Max Well technically she was Gillian's nanny and Slade was supposed to be Max's nanny But here's the thing Gillian was being paid to nanny both kids and she was also being paid to report back on how Slade was performing to his mom Slade's mom was friends with the kiddos mom and thinks that Gillian will help her son mature and grow up It sounds like a recipe headed for a huge disaster right? While I guessed how a few things would play out it definitely didn't take away from the story that unfolded “Naked party” Gillian screeched Before I could stop her she’d peeled off her sundress and shot up the stairs in her swimsuit Max followed her giggling with Spike in pursuit The two little kids they were nannying Gillian and Max were beyond crazy and energetic They made me laugh so hard Saying they added chaos to Trina and Slade's day is a huge understatement And Slade and Trina already have a rocky past He's the reason she earned the nickname Bird Brain years ago Plus they are literally the polar opposites from one another in almost every way imaginable Slade was relaxed calm and enjoyed being a player so no one could break his heart again Trina was controlling and had the minutes of her day planned down to a T So between the two of them and the crazy kiddos things were bound to be explosive hilarious and emotional And as time proceeded Spade's playboy charm started to affect Trina and Trina's cute pixie ways started to cloud Slade's head “I know the Heimlich” I kneeled in front of him worried by all his hacking noises “Do you want me to do the Heimlich on you? Give me one finger for yes two fingers for no” Still coughing violently he waved four fingers at me two on each hand Geez Whatever Not like I’d hurt him I totally knew what I was doing from Babysitter First Aid class I stomped away and opened cupboards until I found a glass then filled it with water and handed it to him Trina Playing the Player was so cute and it was filled with such a charming story I have to say that my favorite scenes by far were the shredder incident oh my gosh I went from laughing so hard to crying And the climbing wall Butterflies excitement and nervousness consumed my thoughts while those moments took place If you're looking for a book that is going to make you laugh feel giddy and fall in love then this is definitely your book I can't wait to discover the other books this author has written “You called me a man whore” He looked surprised then he laughed “No I didn’t But I wish I had How ’bout I just call you bro ho for short? Since you’re hardly a man” I splashed water at him as hard as I could “Bro ho” he yelled sending a wave of water my direction Slade talking to his bff Alex PS I have to give a huge shout out to Trina's best friend Desi and Slade's best friend Alex They were so full of life and added so much to the story lineARC kindly provided by Entangled Crush via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review For of my reviews please visit

    35 STARSI'm pleasantly surprised with this one I picked it up completely by random on Overdrive and it was exactly what I needed right now It was fast light fluffy a little frustrating at times I'm not gonna lie but I enjoyed it view spoilerI will say that both Trina and Slade frustrated me at timesespecially Trina with those envelopes at the end Oh YA loves its misunderstandings doesn't it? I'm at least glad that they got resolved rather uicklyfor the most part Also some things did feel really rushed and I really wish some of the side characters were included towards the end because I really liked them The children in particular were adorable and they kind of disappeared towards the end hide spoiler

    This is a beautifully written teen romanceI'm not a big fan of YA romance mostly because the characters are so youngI haven't read too many so I don't have much to compare this to But if I was in my late teens I am sure that I would absolutely cherish every second of it It'd be a book I'd read over and over and over again until the pages were worn and much loved That's why I've given this 5 stars Because for what it is its absolutely brilliantSlade and Trina truly hate one another at the beginning of the story But a reluctant friendship slowly develops as they are forced into a summer job togetherThe friendship grows and eventually they fall in love But the secrets they've kept threaten to destroy themI loved it Pure innocent romance

    35 StarsPlaying the Player is a very cute YA contemporary romance Lisa really knows how to play out these young adult issues and topicsI have no doubt that many young adults will love this story I enjoyed reading about the characters different personalities and watching each grow a bit Trina and Slade are very reluctant to be hanging out together for their summer job but neither really have a choiceThe beginning moved at a great pace as they got to know one another and saw a different side to one another However I felt the conflict and how it was resolved felt sort of rushed at the end I don't think there was really any other way to have that play out So I think my issue with the pace was the timeline everything was based on The beginning went day to day and then near the end each chapter was sort of fast forwarded weeks instead of the day to day as is was before Other than that I felt the book was well written and flowed wellIf you are looking for a uick light read or something where you don't want to get too caught up in drama this is the book for you It's a perfect read for young adults

    45 starsPlaying the Player was such a fun sweet and entertaining readLoved both Trina and Slade they were likable and very relatable Trina is the nerd who is organized to a fault she thinks her way is the right way and doesn't let people get too close she doesn't trust easily Her past has left her cautious of taking risks and just letting go and having funThen we have Slade the boy who is totally opposite to Trina He's laid back loves life and just having funHe's known as a player but behind this is a boy who is scared of being hurt so he doesn't do relationshipsSlade made me laugh with his uick wit and sarcasm loved himWatching these two work together as nannies was a hoot Trina with her daily binder all organized and set out to the min and Slade with his lets just go with it attitude you knew this wasn't going to go well But as things start to go wrong Slade steps up and takes charge what we saw was a boy a lot smarter than he lets people see Watching this Slade made Trina warm to him and start to let her walls down It was heartwarming seeing them get closer and opening up to each otherFor me the two 5 year old's Gillian and Max that Trina and Slade were in charge of nearly stole the show I laughed out loud so many times I couldn't help but love them both dearly Gillian was funny and such a spit fire god I loved her D And Max what a sweet sensitive little boy he was seriously I need a book about them in the future lol If you're looking for a sweet fun and heartwarming read with great characters you'll love Playing the Player I was so caught up with the story I read it in one sitting Thank you Entangled Crush via Netgalley for the advance copy in exchange for my honest thoughts
