Cocky football players, school rivalry, and the girls who get in their way. Get ready.... The Raiders are back!

Felicity Giles has a list.

Lose her virginity.
Meet her knight-in-shining-armor and fall in love.
Have the best senior year a girl can have.
The only problem? Her knight isn’t a saint, he’s a villain, and she’s pretty sure he’ll destroy her before ever handing over a piece of his heart.

Jason Ford has a plan.

Win State and go down as one of the most successful quarterbacks in Rixon Raider history.
Head off to college and pursue his dream of being drafted to the NFL.
Avoid the girl under his skin. Felicity Giles, his stepsister’s best friend and perpetual pain in his ass.

She’s annoying as hell.

She’s a game to him, nothing more.

Until his arch rival comes after him and the few people he cares about...and Felicity gets caught in the crossfire.

And suddenly, hating her feels a whole lot like falling in love.

QB One is officially off the market!

Overall 3.5 stars
Performance 4 stars
Story 3 stars

The Game You Play surprised me in a good way. After listening to the first book, I wasn't a huge fan of the hero (Jason), but I hoped for the best and dove in. I have to say that LA Cotton did a very good job redeeming this alpha a-hole. This is an angsty YA/NA romance, so don't expect rainbows and unicorns. Jason really lives up to his reputation for being a manwhore and world class jerk many times in the book and though I still don't love him, I do feel like I understand him and his motivations better. I didn't enjoy all the OW drama and that he still "passed the time" after things had already started with Felicity (even if it wasn't official and he denied his feelings/the connection). I liked Felicity and that she grew through the course of the book, but I do wish that she would have put her foot down more and not been a complete doormat for Jason.

I understand that this is YA/NA, so miscommunications and misunderstandings are par for the course, but the entire feud with Thatcher and his threats were a bit much. As I did in the first book, I often wondered where the parental supervision was and still feel like having this book series take place in college would have been a better choice. Sarah Puckett and Wen Ross did a wonderful job narrating and I really enjoyed all of the emotion they put into it. Puckett's performance was especially moving. I'm excited for Asher (and Mya's!) story next, especially after he was friend zoned by Felicity and his selflessness at the end of the book.

This Series Is So Good

You will remember Felicity and Jason from the first book. Jason was the meanest from the first book so I was scared I wouldn’t be able to root for him. By the end I was fully behind he and Felicity and I can’t wait for the next book!

Loved Felicity and Jason!

Book Two is just as fantastic as book one! I fell in love even more with these characters and the Rixon Raiders world that LA Cotton has built. A fantastic book, one filled with heartbreak and sacrifice, I hung on every word performed by Sarah and Wen. I adore these two narrating together! They are two of my favorites and a seriously dynamic duo. Loved it so much!
Jason is a serious asshole, but I loved his transformation and the levels of him that you get to see as his layers are peeled away. So many feels in this one.

great series

Fantastic story. I really enjoy this series. I was given this book for a honest review and I can say you definitely want to read and listen to this series. Jason was a real A-hole in this first book and he starts out the same in thistle. Then when he and Fe start hooking up he begins to change his ways. He felt pressured to be the best and pushes and pulls poor Fe around. A few times I just wanted to scream. The audiobook was amazing. Love the narration. very complete and strong characters. I cant wait to complete this series. Looking forward to Ash.

YA BULLY ROMANCE

This book was okay overall but I could not get over Jason's character. I was hoping for a better redeeming moment where I would see the light and the universe would be okay again. great performance as always,

QB finally gives love a chance!

I asked to receive this free review Audible book and wrote this unbiased review.
L. A. Cotton has written a high school romance filled with lots of angst, drama, hurt feelings, misunderstandings, revelations, and love. In other words typical feelings of high schoolers. Jason feels love is not for him and we will learn why. Felicity knows this but her heart can't help itself. Their road to love is a rocky one that is filled with twists and turns. You will feel like kicking some sense into Jason.

Sarah Puckett and Wen Ross are two extremely talented narrators. They draw you into the story by making you feel the emotions of these characters. I highly recommend this Audible book.

Fantastic one of my favorites

The audiobook was fantastic and totally recommend it Wen Ross is great and Sarah Puckett did a terrific job. This series has become one of my top favorite ones, Jason and Felicity, they have been getting at each other, their back and forth animosity, Jason always hurting Felicity, all the angst between them and the chemistry they can't deny, all the drama surrounding them, the twists and the angst will grab you and hold you until you are done. This is a perfect read for enemies to lovers trope lovers, I absolutely recommend reading the first one, and I can't wait for more from the author, a top favorite 2019 read!

Touchdown for QB1

Y’all, I think I spent about 85% of this book cussing Jase out!
Ok, now that I have that out...
I loved seeing Cam and Hailee all loved up, and sweet Asher holding back from shooting his shot, while encouraging the rest of the world to not mess things up. And I can’t wait for Asher’s book.
But Jase & Flick? When I got done yelling at him, my whole heart just pitter pattered over his sweetness that he kept tucked far far away.
His walls were high, but she scaled them like a champ.
This stuff right here? Absolute heart melting GOLD:
“I’d chase you to the ends of the earth. You’re mine, Felicity. Every single piece of you.”
A million stars. Seriously.
