What happens next is a bunch of fun, games, and falling in love. Both Maddie and Braden are all about winning the game, playing it how they need to to make the other one fall in love with each other, just to leave them at the end of four weeks.
I loved watching these two interact, together, as well as with their friends. Maddie, as much as she hated to admit it, really started to trust Braden and Braden started to see there was more to life then love them and leave them.
Watching Maddie open up and discuss her past with Braden, made my heart break for her, the things she has gone through no one should have to, and she's learned so much from it. Braden, as much as he thinks he's still just playing the game, you can tell he really is starting to fall for her.
No one really sees it coming, but everything blows up one night and it's not good at all. Watching the two of them apart is horrible, all I wanted was for these two to be together, they bring out the best in one another. As much as it sucks watching them fall apart, I think Maddie needed it. She was able to figure things out on her own, and do things she has needed to do for a while.
I enjoyed watching these two figure out their own lives, as well as what it meant to be in a relationship. Braden and Maddie's story is sweet, and watching them grow up was amazing. When both are playing a game where the goal is to make the other fall in love, what happens when they are the one falling? Read The Love Game and find out!
Maddie a girl trying to escape her heartache in Brooklyn moves to Cali to go to college. She instantly hates Brayden because he reminds her of her brother. Her brother ruined her best friend. So when her friends ask her to Play the Player she agrees. She thinks she has nothing to worry about because she hates him. Can she Play the Player and not fall in love?
Brayden is a man whore. He has a harem of blondes. He instantly wants Maddie when he sees her. He knows she doesn't like him. So when his friends give him a challenge to make her fall in love with him and sleep with him. He accepts! Can he make it through the game without falling in love?
They journey this game takes them on is funny and definitely heartbreaking. Will the game they played bring them together or tear them apart?
I give this book 4stars! What a great book Emma Hart!!!!!
I definitely liked the second half of the book better, so my advice is to stick with it, no matter how annoying the games and unrealistic setting. Yeah, right, UC Berkeley with girls dormitories where guys aren't allowed, beaches nearby with bonfires attended by the entire freshman class, and bells ringing to signal the end of class. Last I checked, dorms at Berkeley had coed floors, there's no beach with surfing until you get to Santa Cruz (arguably, maybe Half Moon Bay, Pacifica or Ocean Beach in SF, all on the OTHER side of the Bay) and definitely no fires allowed on beaches in California. But... don't let that distract you because things get more emotional and realistic after Maddie's brother Pearce shows up begging her for money for drugs.
Finally, some real drama and opportunity for Braden to show the concern he is capable of and for their "game" relationship to deepen. The ending was a little bit more drawn out than I expected, but I have to keep reminding myself they're not even twenty, barely out of high school. The scene with Maddie's best friend and father were very touching as is the admission at the end that love is worth fighting for and keeping.
