Review: Player by Staci Hart


I should have known it was only a game.

I should have known he was too good to be true.

He’s nothing but a player…

Player, an all-new sexy, standalone romantic comedy from Staci Hart, is LIVE!


He’s a player.

He plays the bass with expert fingers. He plays women with intoxicating charm. And he’ll play me with the ease of a virtuoso.

Who better to teach me to play than the master himself?

I’m his model student, front row, pencil sharp. Pick up lines? I’ve got them. Free drinks? By the dozen. Kissing? Let me grab my chapstick.

But the most valuable lesson I’ve learned is that there’s so much I don’t know. Like why his touch sets off a chain reaction straight to my nethers. Or how I’m certain each kiss is the best I’ll ever have, until the moment his lips take mine again.

There’s so much I don’t know.

Like the fact that I’m only a bet.

But we are what we are. He’s a player, through and through.

And I’m the fool who fell in love with him.

My Review

“Tonight called for red lipstick and victory rolls”

“In Sam’s arms, things like physics and gravity no longer existed. I didn’t need to do anything but trust him as he spun me away, my arm flying out in a mirror of his.”

“Love is music. It’s learning when to be loud and when to be soft. It’s riding the scales up and down. Learning the curves ans strings to play the song of your heart. You have to know when to lead and when to follow. When you’re wrong and when you’re right. Love is music, hijo mio. It’s the greatest music there is.”

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been waiting rather impatiently for a new romance from Staci Hart. So, when I heard that Player would be releasing soon, I was over the moon. I was so excited and couldn’t wait to see what this author had in store for her readers in this new romantic comedy.

Player hooked me right away. It had a very She’s All That vibe going for it. A bet between friends that turns into lessons in love and romance….I mean how can you go wrong. You know this book is going to take you on one heck of a ride and all you can do is sit back, relax and hold on….

You may think you have heard this story before or that you know what’s going to happen, but I promise you that you haven’t met characters like Val or Sam. The chemistry and tension between these two is just scorching. I mean, I literally could not get enough of these two. They entertained me with their humor and banter. They made me swoon and fall in love with their imperfections. They made me see beauty in places I may not have seen it before. They kept me breathless in anticipation and left me begging for more. Sure these two characters couldn’t be more opposite. Val was curvy and shy with a mouth that lacks filter. And Sam is the player. The guy who knows he’s all that and a bag of chips. He has the best confidence and his heart is always in the right place. So, while at first glance, these two shouldn’t have worked, they totally did. They balanced each other and brought out the best in one another. Their friendship was fantastic and every girl should have a guy look at her the way that Sam looked at Val—some seriously swoon worthy stuff there!

The road to happily ever after wasn’t an easy one for Sam and Val. You had to know they wouldn’t be able to just ride off into the sunset. Their story had just the right amount of angst, drama and fight. I loved watching Sam and Val figure things out. And I loved watching Sam fight for his happily ever after.

Player was a fabulous read from begging to end. I love, love, loved getting wrapped up in Sam & Val’s story. These two captivated my mind and captured my heart. I loved getting lost between the pages and seeing how Sam & Val’s story would play out. From an entertaining story-line to fantastic characters to a fake relationship and lessons in love. To angsty moments and moments that made you swoon. To moments that frustrated you and left you aching for more. Player hit all the marks for me and was a fun story to spend my day getting lost in.

About the Author

Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.

From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
