When a knee injury ends twenty-year-old Quinn Rowland’s pro tennis career, he’s not only dumped by his hot Russian girlfriend but ordered to attend college by his disinterested billionaire father. A rich kid who’s not used to being disappointed by life, Quinn and his sociopathic half-brother Sebastian create a frat house game intended to treat girls how they see them—as simple game pieces to be manipulated for their pleasure.

College sophomore Emilie Swanson knows Quinn’s reputation—after all, he did send one of her sorority sisters into therapy earlier in the semester—but the game and his charm bring them closer together and soon she starts to believe there’s more to Quinn than people think.

But what if the more is something darker than a game of toying with emotions and breaking hearts?

Quinn and Emilie might be falling for each other, but there are secrets he’s not ready to tell—and lifestyle changes he’s reluctant to make. She willingly stepped on the court, but if Emilie finds out she started out as nothing as a pawn in Quinn and Sebastian’s twisted game, she might never forgive him.

To his surprise, Quinn finds that he might finally care about someone more than he cares about himself…even if that means letting Emilie walk away for good.

    Well told love story about real life events! Language was a little vulgar but great read!
  • Engaging and Addictive

    This series has been on my TBR list for quite some time, and I finally delved in this week. I wasn't surprised to find that I was flipping pages quickly and waiting to see where Quinn and Emilie took their story. I love the interactions between the two of them, and the fact that Emilie isn't ignorant and completely unaware of Quinn's tendencies. She goes into the situation believing she has her feelings under control, but she never expects to fall for a guy with his reputation. She also never expected to see glimpses of the real Quinn hidden behind his playboy image. This story is sexy and fun and keeps you guessing where the story will take you next. I look forward to reading more from this series!

    Read this in one night, couldn't put it down. I was absolutely mesmerized by every unique feeling that arose while reading this book. I was hooked from the first chapter. Highly suggest this one and also the second book, I will be purchasing the third one soon. Can't get enough of the characters and wish I could read more about them. Emilee and Quinn, are electrifying in this book. I couldn't get enough of it.

  • Another cliche story about a player who won't admit to being in love.

    By Annmric8
    Another cliche beginning to a story that focuses on majoring in art and guys who are players and the one girl that is going to capture his attention and have him wanting to change his ways. Too predictable. To boot Quinn is rich and in a fraternity. Quinn does not get along with his father and his mother left after giving birth to him. Spoiled rich kids act so damaged and out of control. The rich look happy with all that money, but with money comes problems. Without money comes problems. Finding a balance is key. Quinn will never please his father. Can't forget the game. Quinn has two weeks to bed Emilie. Quinn plays the game so well with Emilie. Emilie has no idea she is even being played. Emilie is too trusting and stupid. Emilie needs confidence to stay away from a guy she knows will use her. Emilie starts off strong. She is able to see through his act, but then she weakens. Emilie looks past Quinn's wild and destructive behavior and gets a good look at the real Quinn. Emilie learns that Sebastian holds secrets about Quinn that can destroy his reputation. Emilie decides she wants to help Quinn. Emilie encourages Quinn to start his own business since his father won't make him apart of his and she destroys all evidence against him. Way to go Emilie. I guess a girl can change a player. All it takes is figuring out the mystery behind the pain and help fix it. The story concept was alright. The writing style was somewhat boring. I skimmed through most of the story. I got tired of Quinn pushing Emilie away and returning to his player ways. It would have been better if Quinn found ways to fix his own problems instead of Emilie figuring out ways for him.
  • Very good good

    I enjoyed this book. It was different than the usual romance. I couldn't put it down.
  • Not that good!

    By Tsneglari
    At the beginning was great, in the middle kinda repetitive and annoying. The girl kept throwing herself at him and he kept rejecting her. I didn't feel any real connection between them. They just seemed to lust over each other and a strong desire to have sex and nothing else. I only had 100 pages to finish the book but I couldn't finish it. In the end they got really annoying and it was all about sex. Couldn't keep reading it!!!!

    Great book. Kinda slow at the start. A little confusing switching back and forth but then got easier and was a great story.
