Colton Masters:
I have no idea why I’m being so rude to her. She hasn’t done anything wrong to me. She seems nice actually, sweet. She’s attractive, that’s for sure, but she certainly isn’t trying to capitalize on it. A baggy sweatshirt and a pair of jeans? Maybe it’s the UGGS that get under my skin. The screaming designer label on her sweatshirt. Maybe it’s the fact that I haven’t stopped fantasizing about what she might look like underneath it.

Lauren Percy:
Why is he being so rude to me? He has a face that has that boy charm. Dimples, big brown eyes, sandy hair, clear skin. But as I travel to his chest, I can see this is no innocent boy. Through his white t-shirt that grips his biceps, I see the black ink of tattoos. Where I come from, I have never seen a tattoo up close and personal. His hands are calloused, his fingernails slightly bitten, and he has a slight scar on his collarbone, but it’s hard to see under the hemp choker he’s wearing. He’s sexy as hell.

Play Only For Me is a standalone New Adult Romance of two college music majors discovering themselves but ultimately discovering that true love and dreams can come with sacrifice, and that happy endings are not always one-note, scripted, already-heard songs.

MY REVIEW:
This was a very cute read. You can almost cut the tension with a knife while wanting to strangle Colton 😂 The book went at a good pace, a great coming of age story. Bad boy & a virgin. The ending wasn’t what I usually go for but it was good!

“I never stopped looking for you.”

Experience the compelling, heart warming romance of Charlotte and John as they rekindle their long-lost love.

Charlotte and John grew up as young orphans in the secluded outskirts of a rural town. Each day, they’d sneak out to the nearby forest to escape the cold grasp of the orphanage’s tyrant-ruler. However, the safety that came from their friendship was suddenly ripped apart when they got caught.

Years later, Charlotte conquered the marketing world in downtown Portland. Having gained normalcy in her life since her days in the orphanage, Charlotte never expected her world to be turned upside down by John abruptly being thrust back into her life.

But the years since the orphanage had not at all been kind to John, leaving him unable to open up to Charlotte about the details. So, Charlotte seeks to reignite John’s love for playing music, finding that his songwriting is the only way to help him express what he otherwise has difficulty saying.

Would the reunited friends discover that John’s rekindled love for music also rekindled their long-awaited, and much desired, love?
