He’s the player of all players…

Newly broke girl Alexandria Asher just wants to live a normal life. After her parents are sent to prison on embezzlement charges, she enrolls in college under her mother’s maiden name and tries her best to pretend she’s someone else.

Tristan Prescott is everything Alex is trying to avoid. A seemingly egotistical, lazy, rich jerk, she dumps her beer on his head when he comes on to her one night at a party. This only spurs Tristan into action. He loves nothing more than a challenge. And the beautiful Alex is exactly the type of challenge that intrigues him.

Despite her reluctance, Alex finds herself quickly involved with Tristan. Underneath that playboy exterior is a good guy, a sweet and sexy guy who she is undoubtedly falling for. What they both don’t realize is the actions of Alex’s parents are the reason for so much tragedy in Tristan’s family. And when Tristan discovers who Alex and her family really is, can he forgive and forget?

Bella's 5 Star Review
What a great series by Monica Murphy!!!!

I loved Fair Game (5 Stars) and In the Dark (4 stars) so I was really excited to read Slow Play. Tristan has given Shep and Gabe a ton of crap over being in a relationship, so I was ready to watch him fall in love. 

Things I loved about this book:
- The writing - just sucks me in!
- Alternating POV - my favorite way to read a book. 
- Chemistry - we get the slow burn here....and then it just explodes!!!
- Alexandria - great heroine!!! She doesn't fawn all over Tristan like so many other girls. She won't be treated like a one night stand and there is more to her than meets the eye. She is strong, she is feisty. 

- Tristan - OMG. He's hot, confident to the point of arrogance and he's determined not to be affected by Alexandria. Most of the time, he acts like a total @sshole. But, there is also more to Tristan than meets the eye. There's nothing more attractive than watching a cocky alpha male become vulnerable. Oh man. 

These two fight the magnetic pull they feel to each other. Alexandria doesn't want to be just another notch on his bedpost. Tristan doesn't want to break his "one and done" rule. 

But they just can't stop thinking about each other. 

At first, they argue. Alex sort of hates him...and it's kind of like foreplay. 

But I love it when they just stop fighting it!

There are a couple of lose ends I wish were tied up (view spoiler), but it really didn't affect my overall enjoyment of the book. 

"You feel it," he whispers. "I touch you and it's like electricity sparks between us. I look into your eyes and I feel like I'm f#cking drowning. And when I kiss you, I never want to stop."

"I think you liked that," she says quietly and I know. I just f@cking know. 
I'm doomed. 

"I'm the most real I can get when I'm with you."


Bottom line: great chemistry, you get updates on Shep and Jade, Gabe and Lucy and Tristan and Alexandria have an awesome story. 

Highly Recommend!!
