Living in a mansion with three hot dudes could be any girl’s dream…it’s just not Kira Wilson’s. Not when Alex Dumont is one of them.
Other girls know him as A1pha, a beautiful, arrogant pro gamer and newly minted billionaire. Kira knows him as an ex crush and a major pain in the butt. But he’s also an old friend and gaming buddy, and when she needs to hide from her abusive ex, she knows that Alex and his roommates Ethan and Ollie (her former gaming teammates) are the right friends to depend on.
Despite the rocky history between them, Kira knows Alex is right when he states that no one can protect her better than he can. Kira’s just not sure that physical safety is worth the danger the grudge-holding, haunted, and utterly delicious pro gamer poses to her heart.
But with her ex hot on her trail, and Alex looking at her in a way that’s hard to resist, she’d better figure it out soon.
Important note from the author!
A1pha Episode 1 is the first novella in a three part planned new adult romance series about Kira Wilson and her three hot, nerdy housemates. Each installment is a little over half the length of my typical novels, with an intense cliffhanger at the end. Hope you enjoy!
This book really blew me away, although very short but highly entertaining novella. Play me centers around Kira who has left an abusive relationship and runs to her ex best friends who have suddenly become rich. Although her relationship is rocky with Alex, she knows that only him and her other friends can help keep her safe from her ex.
What makes Play Me so fun is that it gives you the chance to geek out, all the characters though extremely hot are gamers. I love the interaction between the characters they are fun, flirty and sexually charged. They are described as gamers but it does not feature so much in the book to make you bored. The story is fast paced and full of tension. I really can’t wait for the next Installment of A1pha especially after being left with a major cliffhanger.
All up a fun and exciting read that really surprised me, I could not put this one down and I highly recommend it.
