Playing the Player by Lisa Brown Roberts is an amazing young adult book. Roberts does an outstanding job creating the characters making them realistic and relatable. Trina and Slade decided to nanny for their best friends over the summer to help their friends. They are complete opposites and this helps make the book even more interesting. While Trina plans everything and carries an organized binder with her everywhere she goes. Slade is the laid back popular guy who’s looking for a good time. They really can’t stand each other at the being but that soon changes as the story plays out. They go from being completely mean to each other and not having much respect for the other to developing a friendship that is unexpected. When secrets are revealed their friendship gets tested. I really enjoyed reading this book and found myself laughing out loud a few times. You can get your copy HERE.
(from amazon.com) Trina Clemons needed the money. Why else would she – the most organized, prepared student in school – spend the summer as a nanny and partner with the biggest slacker ever? Now she’s ready to tackle nannyhood with her big binder of research and schedules. Just don’t ask her about the secret job of “fixing” the bad habits of a certain high school player. Slade Edmunds prefers easy hook-ups, and Trina is definitely not his type. She’s all structure and rules, while Slade wants to just have fun. Fortunately, Trina has no idea about the bet Slade made with his best friend that he can totally get her to unwind by the end of summer. Then the weirdest thing happens. There’s chemistry. A lot of it. But nothing gets between a boy and a girl like a big, fat secret.
