Love all that delicious tension! This lighthearted enemies to lovers romance is filled with chemistry and humor, making the pages fly by. Our hero is a shameless playboy who has finally met his match, and sparks fly between the two right away. I loved all of the bickering that is really banter, the humor, and the slow build from loathe to love. And while it took a long, long time for the hero to grow on me, he did win me over by the end.
The story follows Birdie, a country music star on the rise. She’s set to audition for her very first acting role and has been warned by her friends that her potential co-star is not the kind of guy whose charms she should fall for. An established actor, Andrew has a reputation for being a bit of a jerk and for loving all of the things that come with the Hollywood lifestyle – including the endless buffet of women. When he meets Birdie, it’s lust at first sight, but she is immediately put off by the personality beneath the pretty package. The two heat up the screen, and it’s not long before their relationship shifts in a new direction.
I always love the humor in Monroe’s books, and there’s definitely plenty of that in this one. There’s also a whole lot of CHEMISTRY between these two; they have zero problems in that department. My only real disconnect from this one is Andrew. He is just a little too oversexed and arrogant for my personal tastes, so my like of Birdie would diminish every time she fell for his charms. It’s also a slow burn (which I love), but these two are still flirting with other people halfway in (which I don’t love), and denying that there’s anything more than heat for even longer. That’s really the only thing that holds me back from calling this a 5-star read. I enjoyed it from start to finish, read it in one or two sittings, but wanted to like the characters a little more. That being said, Andrew really does show his sweet side in the back half and I grew to like him a lot more. I received an ARC via Social Butterfly PR and am voluntarily leaving a review of this tension-filled romance.
Hate the Player, a slow burn and hilarious romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Max Monroe is LIVE EARLY!
“Roses are red, violets are blue, stay away from Andrew Watson’s *ahem* because no other women ever do.”
That’s quite the way to start a conversation at a casual lunch, huh? Grilled chicken, French fries, and pelvic-fatigue, oh my!
And that’s not even the worst of it.
My friend Raquel didn’t pull any punches when she warned me about my brand-new co-star and his notoriously player-esque ways. Apparently, my most important mission on my first role in a feature film is to stay immune to his charms.
Are you kidding me? Production costs on this movie are in the hundreds of thousands a day, and staying away from a panty-whispering, vajayjay-charmer is supposed to be at the top of my list? Pfft. Puh-lease.
It doesn’t matter that he’s annoyingly attractive, uber rich, crazy famous, and lusted after by ninety percent of the female population; Andrew Watson is trouble with a capital T—especially for a woman like me.
As a preventative measure, I’ve decided to go ahead and hate him.
Don’t worry, you guys, I’m completely in control. There’s absolutely no way I’m going to do something stupid like fall in love with him.
I can hate the player but still secretly love his addictive game.
I’m sure of it.
