Player by Staci Hart

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.

Player by Staci Hart is a hot contemporary romantic comedy that reminded me of that Freddie Prinz Jr. movie "She's All That" Set around a New York City Broadway musical orchestra & musicians looking for sex & love.  Awareness of self & what this life has to offer the heart if you take the risk.
Told in first person, from dual perspectives this page turner will have you laughing out loud from the start "I had a vibrator and internet access.  What more could a girl want?"  Val & her "Four glorious wallflowers." roommates & best friends are so much fun.  Supportive & caring, with quirks all their own.  Sam, a man with a heart of gold & all he could want out of life.  Drawn to Val, to protect her from guys like he thinks himself to be.  Protection that brings these two together for lessons in how to snag a guy - quickly turn dangerously - into lessons in trust & of heart break.  In the end "It's about figuring out what you want and going after it." 
This story is sexy & sweet, full of taking chances & embracing beauty, inside & out.  Loving your true self & letting others do the same.  "...unexpected harmony."
