The Playmaker by Lane Swift

The Playmaker Ask Meg, and she’ll say she’s content. A promising career, a steady boyfriend—her future is secure. Just like her position on Brentley Women’s Rugby Team.

Her fascination with Jacqueline, the team’s wild and beautiful flanker—that’s nothing more than infatuation. When Jacqueline unexpectedly corners her and kisses her breathless, Meg is blindsided.

Forced to admit her secure future isn’t nearly as appealing as it had seemed, Meg realises she has two options: keep playing it safe or change the game.addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16

 The Playmaker is the perfect story about love, heartbreak, attraction, conflict, and so many other emotions. The author portrayed each one well, making the reader feel each one alongside of Meg. She seems to coast through life always doing the right thing. Even if that conflicts with her own happiness. I found Meg easy to connect with throughout the story. When she broke things off with her longtime boyfriend, I felt pain and fear alongside of her. As for Jacqueline, I found her difficult to connect with. But, she made Meg happy and that made it easy to tolerate her.

The emotions and angst throughout the story really pull at the reader. As for the chemistry between Meg and Jacqueline, it was off the charts HOT!!! However, the sensuality of their sex scenes made the relationship seem more long term than a rebound quickie. Like I mentioned, the author did such a fantastic job of portraying each emotion and making it easy to connect with them. I loved that most about this book.

If you have an open mind and enjoy LGBT stories, I highly suggest picking up this short book to read.
