Something about Ty just stole my heart. I loved everything about this guy, especially the way he treated his best friend. This friends to lovers romance was just everything. I love a slow burn, I love angst, I love a steamy, sexy, deliciously sweet love story and Played was all the things. The pace in this story was perfection. It was exquisitely crafted, pulling every emotion from me as I read... LUST, JEALOUSY, HEARTACHE, FURY, LOVE... I felt it all.
I love a good sports romance but more, I LOVE a good friends to lovers romance. Played is the full package, layering both in this unputdownable story that I devoured. Two best friends struggling with the feelings they've secretly developed for each other while also struggling with their own identities. Ty and Ara are each fighting their own battle to carve a place for themselves in a world overshadowed by the success of someone they love. It's beautiful and relatable and emotional the whole way through. I was as invested with these characters' personal journeys as I was with the attraction simmering between them. I love a sweet and sexy sports romance and Played is certainly that. But I so appreciate a deeper plot, a richly layered storyline that completely ensnares the reader in its romanticism, its drama and its well developed character dynamics. And Played is certainly all of that as well. I loved it!
Ara has been Ty's best friend for four years. She's secretly in love with him, but is so worried that moving into the love zone will damage their strong friendship she keeps her feelings to herself. A drunken night of rolling around naked together does nothing to help her confidence here -- Ty doesn't remember any of it.
What she doesn't know is that Ty is in love with her too. It takes pretty much the whole book for these two to get on the same page. Ara has some other things going on in her life that damage her confidence. She's trying to find a job in the art field on her own without her artist father's help.
I did want to slap Ara when Ty finally decides to reveal his feelings and she's still runs from him. That got a little frustrating for me, as it was clear to e-v-e-r-y-o-n-e that Ara and Ty were meant for each other.
Overall, this is a cute college romance with a nicely developed football theme. Ty is definitely swoon-worthy and every time the story mentioned his glasses, all I could see in my mind was the delicious cover!
There's some really nice "twin" shenangans going on too, which provided some nice humor.
I liked Played, I like this whole series.
Best friends to lovers isn’t something I typically go crazy for, but these two characters made me a fan. The quirky charm both of them offered had me smiling throughout the book. The friendship was believable but so was the attraction. They didn’t wake up and suddenly decide they had feelings for each other, noooooo, they have both carried a flame for years but hadn’t acted until a little liquid courage gives them the push they need.
Ty was as swoon worthy as you can possibly get. He was an alpha without being a jerk. Oh boy, when he decided to lay his feelings out to Ara, he did it with a bang. (Fans face) I loved it.
Ara was pretty skittish about love, but her reason why was completely believable. She really wanted what was best for Ty, and to keep her friendship with him in any possible way. So if that meant forgoing a romantic relationship with him then, she’d do just that.
The talk about football, the draft and transition from college to pro was done really well. That’s important to me, because if you’re going to bring a sport into a novel and make it a big focus then it has to be done right, and Fredrick always does an awesome job with that. I really loved reading these characters and was reminded again why this series is my absolute favorite, and I’ll be eagerly waiting for the next book.
However, I don't think he's a jerk anymore. I think Ty is very focused and extremely dedicated to football. I was somewhat surprised to learn he was just as dedicated to his girl! Ty has to focus on his burgeoning career and then he is hot with the realization that his long term best friend is "The One".
Are has been-there, done-that when it comes to men like Ty! That's why when he literally run her over her freshman year, she protects her heart and puts him safely in the friend zone! However, Are soon realizes that she has been a scary cat and selfish in ALL areas of her personal life.
Can Ty show St a that he can be everything she needs? Can St a get past the past and give the men in her life a chance?
Read and find out! This book was full of sex and funny situations and quirky characters that you've come to expect from Jen Fredricks. Please read this book! It's worth all the 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟!
