Play (Stage Dive #2) by Kylie Scott

Anne Rollins could have a better day. When she gets to her apartment, she realizes her roommate is gone. Not only have her roommate's things have disappeared but she also won't see the rent money she owes her. So, when her neighbor invites her to a party where the Stage Dive group will be, she finds herself wanting the distraction. As a teenager she had a huge crush on their drummer, Malcolm Ericson.

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.

Favorite quotes:

“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.” 

“Crazy eyes?” 
“Yes.” She laughed softly. “Crazy eyes.”
