Review & Giveaway: Grooming the Player
by Allie L. Adams

Don't hate the player...
Bainbridge University sophomore, Emma Rae, embraces her title of perpetually single. All the guys at BU are total players, and if there's one thing Emma hates more than anything, it's a player. 

Learn to play the game...
Ryan is tired of being the embarrassment of his frat house. Being a Delta means he should be playing the field, a different girl every night, just like the rest of his frat brothers. But he's the king of nerds, as they constantly remind him, and has never even had a real girlfriend. Hell, he isn't even allowed to live in the Delta house, instead living in a mod behind it. 

He begs Emma to turn him into a player. In return he'll bring her to the Delta DASH--the party of the year. As an underclassman, Emma isn't allowed to the DASH without a Delta escort. She quickly agrees, knowing she can turn him into anything, as she's done with so many of the ghosts of boyfriends past. 

She updates his image, teaches him how to flirt, how to kiss, and even how to drive a girl wild with his heated touch. She's groomed Ryan into the ultimate player, which is exactly what he wants.
The problem is she turns him into exactly what she wants too and must now decide whether this Project Em's Way is her greatest creation... Or her ultimate downfall.

Grooming the Player brings a humorous twist to the normally angsty new adult genre. This was a super fun, upbeat read that kept me turning the pages 

I loved the way the relationship develops between Emma and Ryan, if this  book was a made for TV movie, I would be watching.. I can't resist a make over story!  At the time of this review Grooming the Player is on-sale for the rock bottom price of .99!  You can't go wrong with this 4.5 STAR read. 

This was my first book by author, Allie K. Adams and it certainly won't be my last. She has a talent for drawing you in quickly, her characters are endearing and I love finishing a new adult read with a smile on my face.  I plan on reading the next book in the Campus Players series, Hiring the Player (review forthcoming).
