Players gotta play. Hate is like a poison. It contaminates everything. So does doubt. Even though I deny what I overheard, even though I insist it isn't true, the seed of doubt has been planted. I can't help but be tormented with the endless what-if's that have taken over our lives. Romeo and I were happy in love. The future stretched before us brighter than any star in the darkest sky. Now everything is broken. Literally broken. Romeo's entire career is at stake, my entire future is threatened... and my past? It's coming back to haunt me. To haunt us. Romeo says we're in this together and right now the only sure thing is us. But how far can a love so new be pushed? The lengths we will have to go to save each other puts everything at risk. Romeo is a #player but how much of the game can one person play?
I’m surprised – and pleasantly so – at how far this story has come from the very juvenile player and the nerd cliché that I’d first gotten into in book 1.
There were aspects in the first 2 books that I couldn’t entirely believe in wholeheartedly but I felt that I simply needed to laud Cambria Hebert for sticking closely and loyally to both Romeo and Rim where most would have had written angst and pseudo-breakups typical of YA/NA romances into conflict and domestic dispute.
I was beyond glad to see this happen – a relationship where both sides were clearly invested in each other and actually fought for each other – in this installment as well and with the focus shifting to a childhood mystery, I could finally say that ‘#Player’ was a rather stellar conclusion to a series that initially, I wasn’t too sure I could get into.
