Playing Hard to Get by Monica Murphy
Knox Maguire is the king of our college campus.
Star offensive tight end on the football team.
He is the complete opposite of me in every way.
I'm quiet. He's loud.
I'm shy. He's definitely not.
Everyone loves him. No one knows me.
Fresh out of a breakup, I don't really trust him, and why should I? Knox is the ultimate player. When I become his English tutor, I tell myself we need to keep things between us strictly business. Watching my mother deal with my ex-athlete father long, long ago taught me to stay far away from that type of man.
Yet Knox is impossible to resist. Next thing I know, we're getting hot and heavy in the library—and that was never part of the plan. When Knox admits he can't stop thinking about me, I have a realization.
I can't stop thinking about him either.
Instead of keeping my distance, I pull him in closer. Until somehow, we're spending all of our time together and I find myself falling for Knox. Hard.
Will this actually work between us? Or am I getting played?
5+ Heart Review by Lorena
This has been one of my favorites this year by Monica Murphy!
My gosh this story was freaking adorable. These characters have become some of my favorites. I loved everything about them, their banter, their humor and just the way they were with each other. How quickly Knox fell for Joanna and the easiness, and how comfortable they were with each other since they met.
I just loved everything about this story. Knox was just so easy going and how he just got along so quickly with Joanna had me captivated. He was a down to earth kind of guy and how he always complimented Joanna and made her feel things she had never felt before. Her ex did a number on her and it was very hard for her to trust what anybody said to her when it came to compliments.
But Knox always had a way with her and just the camaraderie between them was fantastic!
A top read for 2022!!
