ONCE UPON A PLAYER (British Bad Boys #2)

ONCE UPON A PLAYER                            CHRISTINA PHILLIPS

Violet 

When my mum gets sick, I volunteer to fill in for her and clean some hot jock’s penthouse. I’ve heard all the rumors about him, so the plan is get in, clean some toilet bowls, and get out. After my last experience with a “sports hero,” I’m done with that sort of guy. 

But Lucas Carter is full of surprises. He wants to help me clean and is nothing like the toad the press has made him out to be. Resistance may be futile for some girls, but not me. Then he asks me to help him with the interior design of his new place. I can’t say, no. It’s going to look great on my resume. 

Unfortunately, spending time with Lucas is dangerous. He’s so charming and sweet, but I can’t let myself forget––once a player, always a player.

MY REVIEW:
     This was really a good book and an interesting concept.  Because you see this about a London soccer player, Lucas Carter.  Who started playing professional ball when he was seventeen and he is going to be twenty-five in a matter of days.
     But unfortunately, he had been injured and had surgery on his leg.  So, he is finally in a place where he can do physical therapy.  He also bought a new apartment that he shares part-time with his longtime best friend famous model Yolanda.  Who most of the world thinks is his love interest.  When really, they just let them think that so that no one looks to close to who they are really dating. Strictly friends though.
     The team wanted to welcome him back into town so they met at the apartment.  To which his agent hired a cleaning service to clean up the after party.  The friends that dropped in left a mess.  Being that the business is owned by Violet Henderson’s mother she volunteered to clean the place for her since she was feeling under the weather. 
     When she was confronted by the shirtless under ware only footballer she was in awe.  She had to remind herself of the promise she made to herself when her ex-boyfriend chose to have an affair behind her back and everyone knew but her.  That she would never ever date a footballer again.  She just couldn’t believe that she had to keep reminding herself of that over and over again.  But she had to say in her defense he was her teen crush.
     On that first day Lucas asked her out but she said no, she made it a strict no that she didn’t date footballers.  She said nothing against him.  She made it a rule that she didn’t date footballers.  She said her ex-cured her of all footballers.
     Two weeks later she was meeting parts of his family and even going to great lengths to be a part of the great parts of what he seems to want and need. 

     All the characters are very well rounded and full of great emotion.  Makes you see that not always do the ‘stars of fame’ that are shining so bright with fame like all the hype.  Sometimes they just want small town America again.  Like Violet was able to give Lucas a well as still see it in, Lucas.
      I give this: 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.  Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
