The Good Girl Vs. The Player
Round one begins...

Trina Clemons needed the money. Why else would she - the most organized, prepared student in school - spend the summer as a nanny and partner with the biggest slacker ever? Now she's ready to tackle nannyhood with her big binder of research and schedules. Just don't ask her about the secret job of "fixing" the bad habits of a certain high school player...

Slade Edmunds prefers easy hook-ups, and Trina is definitely not his type. She's all structure and rules, while Slade wants to just have fun. Fortunately, Trina has no idea about the bet Slade made with his best friend that he can totally get her to unwind by the end of summer...

Then the weirdest thing happens. There's chemistry. A lot of it.
But nothing gets between a boy and a girl like a big, fat secret...

Since “player falls in love” is one of our all time favorite tropes, we thought we would love this one. We liked it, but we didn’t love it.

The 411:

Good girl Trina and total player Slade are being nannies for the summer. Of course both of them have secrets–including that Slade made a bet with his best friend about Trina.  As sparks fly between the two of them, what will happen when their truths come to light

What We Loved:

We thought this story had some fun times and some swoony moments.

Heart Border

Um...Not So Much:

We had trouble connecting with the characters. There was a lot of drama, and the whole book seemed kind of immature to us.

Heart Border

Bottom Line:

If you like young YA with clean romance, you might enjoy Playing the Player by Lisa Brown Roberts.
