[Book Review] Hate the Player by Max Monreo


“Roses are red, violets are blue, stay away from Andrew Watson’s *ahem* because no other women ever do.”

That’s quite the way to start a conversation at a casual lunch, huh? Grilled chicken, French fries, and pelvic-fatigue, oh my!

And that’s not even the worst of it.

My friend Raquel didn’t pull any punches when she warned me about my brand-new costar and his notoriously player-esque ways. Apparently, my most important mission on my first role in a feature film is to stay immune to his charms.

Are you kidding me? Production costs on this movie are in the hundreds of thousands a day, and staying away from a panty-whispering, vajayjay-charmer is supposed to be at the top of my list? Pfft. Puh-lease.

It doesn’t matter that he’s annoyingly attractive, uber rich, crazy famous, and lusted after by ninety percent of the female population; Andrew Watson is trouble with a capital T—especially for a woman like me.

As a preventative measure, I’ve decided to go ahead and hate him.

Don’t worry, you guys, I’m completely in control. There’s absolutely no way I’m going to do something stupid like fall in love with him.

I can hate the player but still secretly love his addictive game.

I’ve been patiently waiting for Birdies story ever since she was introduced in Tamin Hollywoods Baddest Boy and damn was it worth the wait. I think, no I know this is new favourite Max Monre novel.

Birdie has been offered the job of a lifetime playing the part of Arizona Lee in Hollywoods next big movie, the only problem is her Co-star playboy Andrew, who riles her up almost from the second they meet. Birdie has it all under control because she has decieded she hates him – seems like the perfect plan?

The chemistry and sexual tenstion between these two characters is ridiculous! They have the pefect hate lust thing going on that almost has a life of its own. The first few chapters are just brilliant the writing is bloody fantastic – I laughed out load a lot!

I adore Birdie she works are butt and doesn’t put up with any of Andrews shannigans it really was an absolute joy to read their banter so entertaining I could read these two all day. Andrew is brilliant too, he puts on this act that he’s a typical hollywood douche but really hes sweetheart.

In a nutshell…

Birdie and Andrew are awesome. Max Monroe did an amazing job with this story it was everything I wanted and more.

My Rating: 5/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
