Play With Me Blog Tour!

Play With Me (Grover Beach Team, #1)Author: Piper Shelly
Publisher: Self-Published
Number of Pages: 190


"Ryan Hunter's parties are legend. And tonight she's going to be there.

Liza Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she's a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Liza craves, she's just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she's prepared to play ball to get her man.

The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school. Ryan Hunter."

When I first picked up this book for the blog tour I didn't realize that this was a novella. I was a bit disappointed when I did realize it was. Overall it was a good book and I really did enjoy it.

The characters were really well shaped. They weren't too perfect or not well written either. I really enjoyed the plot they were placed in. I found it to be amusing but still a great light read. I  really enjoyed the ending but I wished the book was an overall novel and more developed. It definitely would have made the book much more enjoyable.

I do recommend people to read this especially if you play soccer. ;) 

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!!

Author Bio
piper shellyThe quick-and-dirty:I’m a cool girl with a passion for writing.The genres you’ll find me hanging out at are contemporary and paranormal YA, but I’m also snooping into some adult paranormal right now. All of them romances…of course.The nitty-gritty:I’m an Austrian lass—totally uncomplicated and up to anything fun.I grew up in Vienna, not by free will but because my parents decided to move there when I was only 4 years old. I. Hated. The. City. Everything about it. So right after graduation I moved back to Upper Austria, where I settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop.I’ve been a storyteller all my life. Already in kindergarten, I came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. My teacher would call me a liar. I call it the cornerstone of my writing career.People always told me you can’t make a living with being an author. So when my first novella PLAY WITH ME came out and shot straight to the stars within the first week, I was totally dumbstruck. Took me a while to realize what was happening, LOL.And the personal stuff:At the (awesome) age of seventeen, I met the love of my life. But he was a playboy, and I was so not going to be his next trophy. It took him another four years of fighting for me until I finally decided to give that “couple-thing” with him a shot. I’m now married to this man. ;-)We have an eleven-year-old son, and together we travel a lot…although I sometimes wish the trips were shorter because I can’t wait to get back to my laptop and my many stories. Unless we’re in Disneyland. No stress to go home then…If you still want to know more about me, my FAQ page is the right address for you. ;-)
