Ryan Hunter kissed more girls than he cares to remember. But the only one he ever wanted is in love with his best friend.
Watching Liza Matthews’ obsession with Tony Mitchell is a torture Ryan conceals from everyone. Until after a five-week soccer camp, where Tony gets involved with someone else, things suddenly take a different turn. Ryan knows if he doesn’t make a move now and grab his chance, he might never get another.
Asked by Tony to distract Liza, Ryan is only too happy. He subtly seduces her first into his soccer team and later on to his party. He does all in his power to make her see that he’s not just an insufferable playboy but a guy who really cares about her.
Some one-on-one soccer training, a passionate kiss — things seem to be going the way he wants. Except Ryan didn’t reckon on his best friend showing up at the worst possible moment and destroying everything…
I liked Play With Me (see my mini-review here) and so I was eager to find out the story from Ryan’s POV. Getting into Ryan’s head allows me to see how much he’s in love with Liza. Being the captain of the soccer team, it’s interesting to see how Ryan manages to get Liza on the team when she has absolutely no experience in playing soccer! It’s also heartwarming to see all the little things Ryan does to cheer Liza up when she feels depressed. Viewing the lime surprise from Ryan’s POV is really sweet and I absolutely adore Ryan for his readiness to let go of grudges. I don’t know about you but if you asked me, I’d say Ryan is definitely book boyfriend material! I hope you’ll like Ryan Hunter as much as I did.
