Falling for the Player by Jessica Lee #mm #review @jessleenovels


Bad boy and former NFL running back Patrick Guinness is tired of meaningless sex. Ever since his scorching hot one-night stand three years ago, no one has interested him. So when Max Segreti wanders into his mechanic shop—and his life again—Patrick can’t stop thinking about the totally-out-of-his-league law grad and the possibility of getting him out of his system once and for all…

Max Segreti has spent his entire life doing what his father wants. But when he runs into the hotter-than-hell player he’s never been able to forget, he’s not thinking about studying for the bar. A distraction is the last thing he needs, but after an encounter leaves him wanting more, Max embraces the chaos that Patrick brings…even as he knows it can’t last. They’re too different to ever have a future together.

This was an okay read for me personally.  It wasn’t one that completely stood out for me, but it wasn’t one that was a complete bust either.

I personally haven’t read anything by this author before, but I did enjoy Lee’s writing style.  Which is what drew me into the story.  Max and Patrick were both good characters, and while I could get a feel of the chemistry between the two of them, the story itself was predictable for me personally.

Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoyed the story, and I did enjoy the twist that Lee threw in with Max’s father, but the story just left me wanting for a bit more I suppose.  But, this was a good read for a Sunday afternoon. It kept my attention and kept me in the story.

Overall, I would say if your looking for a lazy day read, then be sure to check this one out.
