It should be no surprise to you, nor is it a surprise to me, that 𝐏𝐥𝐚𝐲𝐞𝐫 by Staci Hart is my favorite ROMANCE OF THE YEAR! It’s hard to continue writing this review because I don’t think I could ever do it justice. I kinda feel that way with everything that Staci writes because everything she gives us is PURE MAGIC! The writing is impeccable. These characters, oh my, these characters are LIFE! The imagery is just incredible. The plot? It was absolutely addicting and so full of meaning and heart. The journey…well, that was just unforgettable.
Sam and Val (and the entire gang) are some of my most favorite characters that I’ve ever had the joy of reading about. The banter, the loyalty, the pep talks, it was just all amazing. I’ve never wanted to jump through the pages of a book so bad! Player is EVERYTHING you could ever want in a love story. Sam and Val had this undeniable connection…they just made me feel everything. They gave me hope. They made me smile. They made me laugh and it wouldn’t be a Staci Hart romance unless I shed a tear or two. Ugh! I could go on and on about these characters but I want, no, I need you to experience everything you possibly can for yourself.
This book was an easy choice for my TOP FAVORITE, and it wasn’t just because the romance blew me away (which it SO did). It’s because this is so much MORE. I didn’t know reading a book in this genre could teach me so much, help me gain confidence, make me want MORE out of everything. Val and her #𝘀𝗾𝘂𝗮𝗱𝗴𝗼𝗮𝗹𝘀 makes me want to be brave. Staci Hart makes me want to be brave. She’s an inspiration, along with the characters she has brought to life. I can’t wait to see what greatness she brings us next!
