Mal needs a good girl soon. He needs to pretend to have a girlfriend. When he overhears Anne's cellphone conversation he knows he has found the girl. He knows Anne needs money and he will be able to provide her with it as long as she goes along with his charade. The only problem is that she keeps on giving him those crazy eyes and he likes it too much.
Let's start by saying that Play is a sweet story.
Anne is funny and she is not the usual damaged girl except for a strained relationship with her mother. She loves her sister and she is a good friend. She can understand Mal without too many issues. Even her jealousy is cute. She also can stand up for herself, even to a mean girl.
Mal surprised me. I love him in Lick. In this book he was sweet, funny, tender but when he was hurting it made me feel so sad for him.
I'm glad this story has no triangle, no cheating and the best part : NO CLIFFHANGER.
I can't wait to read Jimmy and Lena's story and then Ben - hopefully with Anne's sister.
“We’ve broken my bed,” I said, stating the obvious.
“In battle, sacrifices must be made, pumpkin.”
“Life’s a song, Anne. Let’s play.”
“C’mon, Anne. We must defend our fake sex life.”
"The first male to pee on me, however, would pay with his balls."
“I know you do, sweetie. I’ve seen the way you look at him.”
“Yes.” She laughed softly. “Crazy eyes.”
