Neither do either of them realize that Garret would be a groomsman at his Cousin Dr. Neil Frederick’s marriage to Blair the following Saturday.
The Frederick family and the Lowry family share the matriarchal grandmother who insisted that Garret be one of Neil’s groomsmen. When Neil figures out that his hated cousin is his fiancé’s ex-boyfriend – and still loves her - he goes all out to rub Garret’s nose in the idea that Neil has won the prize. As one might imagine, the situation and the wedding preparations deteriorate into chaos while the cousins challenge each other over Blair. Meanwhile, Blair still has feelings for Garret, but she doesn’t trust him.
This story is a fitting sequel to The Substitute, the first book of the series. The last week before a wedding with all its various activities has a reputation for putting a strain on all involved – this one does so in spades.
I am so happy that Blair got her own book! She’s tough, ambitious and driven, but in a relationship of convenience lacking sparks and most of all love. Her wedding to Neil (aka the evil weasel) looms upon her and you can see she just doesn't have her heart in it. Enter ex-boyfriend Garrett in a “chance” meeting in Phoenix and her world suddenly gets turned upside-down. I desperately wanted Blair to give Garrett a second chance, but completely understood her reluctance. He broke her heart at a time when she needed him most.
I fell in love with Garrett instantly. Talk about being humble, knowing you screwed up in a big way yet determined enough to go get the only woman he ever loved. After five years of replaying his mistakes, Garrett’s only concern now was Blair and her happiness. Plain and simple. Talk about the perfect guy!
I definitely recommend The Player to anyone who likes a fun, fast read with a HEA. It left me with a “book hangover”. Now I can’t wait for Libby’s book, The Gambler!
I absolutely love these romance comedies that Denise Grover Swank has written. The Substitute was hilarious and emotional. The same can be said for The Player. The story is funny, dramatic, surprising, and something that everyone will enjoy. I don't tend to like romance novels because they are all the same. Not true for this series. In this one, Blair is getting married but it's a marriage of convenience, not of love, which is totally fine with both Blair and her fiance. However, she's been pining for her long lost boyfriend Garrett. What she doesn't expect is to run into in not once, not twice, but 3 different times. Is it fate telling her to rethink her decision to get married? Is it the "wedding curse" that is messing with her? She's got her life set on a specific course and things have to go according to plan. Or else.
The romance in this book was not over the top, not insta-love, not predictable, and completely believable. Both of the main characters are human, and they are flawed. We all question our choices when faced with life changing decisions, especially when we are young. Denise Grover Swank does a great job portraying these characters as realistic and they are totally charming. There are a lot of characters in these stories but you never feel like they are unnecessary or not important. Everyone plays a role and is included for a specific reason and not just place filler. The sexy bits (what few there are) are not too sexy for me and have just the right bit of heat for me. I highly recommend this book and this series and can't wait for the next installment.
