She’s been playing it close…
Ara Martin and college football star Ty Masters have been best friends since the first day of school when Ty literally ran her over. She fell for him immediately, but having lived under the shadow of her famous father, she knows a relationship with irresistible Ty would only end in heartbreak. For four years, she’s kept her feelings hidden. But one drunken encounter weeks before graduation is about to expose Ara’s biggest secret and destroy her most treasured relationship.
He’s been playing for keeps…
Ty is about to be drafted into the NFL, but his personal life is a mess. He’s got an agent he doesn’t like, a brother who can’t stop offering his opinion, and a beautiful woman he craves but can’t have. He can fire his agent and ignore his brother, but he’s not sure what to do about Ara. Ty’s been able to run down every quarterback he’s faced, but his sexy, stubborn best friend keeps slipping through his fingers.
Luckily, he’s not one for giving up, and once he gets his hands on her, he’s never letting go.

Played is a great addition to the Jen Frederick’s Gridiron series about sexy college football players and the feisty women who love them. Once I started Played I didn’t want to stop. I whipped through this book in a matter of hours. I enjoyed Knox’s special appearances (I mean you can’t have Ty’s book without his identical twin showing up) with his twinie spidey sense. Ty is funny, charming and dedicated to football. I love the friends-to-lovers subgenre of romance and it was fun seeing them get together. Jen Frederick’s use of awesome secondary character make Played even better. If you’re looking for a sexy, sporty friends-to-lovers romance with some twin shenanigans thrown in then Played is the book for you!
- Fuck, I love this guy. Platonically, I mean.
- I’ll wear her down. I didn’t become an elite athlete by quitting at the first sign of any resistance.
