Review : Play Me

Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Goodreads : Link

Living in a mansion with three hot dudes could be any girl’s dream…it’s just not Kira Wilson's. Not when Alex Dumont is one of them. 

Other girls know him as A1pha, a beautiful, arrogant pro gamer and newly minted billionaire. Kira knows him as an ex crush and a major pain in the butt. But he’s also an old friend and gaming buddy, and when she needs to hide from her abusive ex, she knows that Alex and his roommates Ethan and Ollie (her former gaming teammates) are the right friends to depend on.

Despite the rocky history between them, Kira knows Alex is right when he states that no one can protect her better than he can. Kira's just not sure that physical safety is worth the danger the grudge-holding, haunted, and utterly delicious pro gamer poses to her heart. 

But with her ex hot on her trail, and Alex looking at her in a way that’s hard to resist, she'd better figure it out soon. 

Important note from the author!
A1pha Episode 1 is the first novella in a three part planned new adult romance series about Kira Wilson and her three hot, nerdy housemates. Each installment is a little over half the length of my typical novels, with an intense cliffhanger at the end. Hope you enjoy!


Kira is on the run from her Ex boyfriend Nate. Until she can get a place of her own, she'll stay with her gamer friends Ollie and his two other room mates Ethan and Alex. The boys there will help and protect her if she needs it from her ex. Meanwhile Alex and Kira has had a past and things are kind of awkward at the moment.

From the description I had high hopes for this book, it sounds like the type of books that I like to read. When I finished this novella I couldn't help but think that I was looking for a bit more then how the book turned out. But then again it was a novella so I'll have to wait till the next book to see what happens. I've read many books were girl runs from ex into the arms to the best friend/hott ex or random guy blah blah blah. See, I wished there was a bit more to the book to leave a big impression, to make this book stand out above the rest. Who knows maybe the second book to this will leave that kind of impression.

With the way this book ended with a cliffhanger I can't help but wonder what is in store to Kira and Alex or maybe she'll switch to Ethan, who knows? (I am actually more curious on Ethan idk if I like Alex that much) I'm also curious how things are going to turn out with the ex situation.

3.5 stars
