*Note: Thank you Dana Burkey for sending me an ARC of Playing for Love. This does not affect my reviews. This is my opinion.*

This story is all about a girl named Fiona who is inlove with her brother’s bestfriend: Jordan. She is doing everything just to win Jordan. She changed herself to get noticed. She joined the soccer team for him.She PLANNED everything.

 I always get irritated with Fiona because she acts like an elementary student and when she always thinks: ” I MUST DO THIS TO GET NOTICED BY HIM”  so that Jordan will fall inlove with her. I know it’s normal but I don’t like her attitude, she acts like a BRAT. SPOILED BRAT. I admit I don’t like her and her bestfriends. They always expect something, and end up wrong. When they always call her “FABULOUS FIONA” it makes me cringe and irritated. However, I really like Jordan because he is so caring with Fiona. She acts like her boyfriend but for Jordan she’s just a LITTLE SISTER. Ross may act like a jerk in the beginning but later on he changed. He’s the type of brother I want, tbh. That’s what I look for every book: CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.

The plot was okay. I like it. Although, the progress is kind of slow. At first, I thought It’s all about romance and things like that but boy I was wrong. The story were journal entries which I like. I was not satisfied with the ending. I LOVE   like the story eventhought it’s cliche.It’s a fast paced, page turner book. If your suffering with a reading slump, I recommend this. It’s a cute and light read.
