This bad boy is about to get played…
After getting her heart broken by a player again, Whitney Porter is done with men. She's focusing on her future career and her first assignment at the college newspaper: Posing as a sports writer for an exposé on the extra perks jocks receive. But Hudson Decker, the bad boy of the hockey team, is about to test her resolve. To keep herself from breaking her no-sex rule with the temptingly tattooed athlete, she decides to use him for a side project: Anatomy of a Player, to help Whitney—and women everywhere—spot a player, learn what makes him tick, and how to avoid falling for one.
With his life spiraling out of control, Hudson Decker's looking for a distraction. When his teammates bet him that he can't land the gorgeous but prickly new reporter, he accepts the challenge, boasting he'll have her in bed by the end of the semester. But Whitney is so much more than Hudson expected, and soon enough, he's in too deep. The last thing he needs is another complication, but staying away isn't an option. One thing's for certain: this girl totally throws him off his game.
I really enjoyed this book. I thought it had a great cast of characters and I loved seeing the two MC’s of the first book.
While this book was very predictable, it really didn’t take away anything for me.
Whitney and Hudson don’t see eye to eye at first. Hudson is just like the guys that Whiney would usually date and there that causes a few problems. But, as time goes on so does their attraction to each other. As they spend more time together, their attraction grows. But one stupid bet could cause Hudson everything that he’s wanted.
I can’t honestly think of anything bad about this book. I really enjoyed the characters, the plot, and the romance. I’m really excited for the next book in this series.
If you like sassy heroines with very impressive fashion sense and an alpha hockey player that usually get what they want then this book would be a great read.
