New Review – SLOW PLAY by Monica Murphy

It’s live!!! I absolutely devoured this one! A definite must read!!



He’s the player of all players…

Newly broke girl Alexandria Asher just wants to live a normal life. After her parents are sent to prison on embezzlement charges, she enrolls in college under her mother’s maiden name and tries her best to pretend she’s someone else.

Tristan Prescott is everything Alex is trying to avoid. A seemingly egotistical, lazy, rich jerk, she dumps her beer on his head when he comes on to her one night at a party. This only spurs Tristan into action. He loves nothing more than a challenge. And the beautiful Alex is exactly the type of challenge that intrigues him.

Despite her reluctance, Alex finds herself quickly involved with Tristan. Underneath that playboy exterior is a good guy, a sweet and sexy guy who she is undoubtedly falling for. What they both don’t realize is the actions of Alex’s parents are the reason for so much tragedy in Tristan’s family. And when Tristan discovers who Alex and her family really is, can he forgive and forget?


“Someday it will happen to you,” Shep says confidently. “And I can’t wait to tell you I told you so.”

Well, it’s safe to say that I completely loved Tristan and Alex’s story. I was caught hook, line and sinker, in this latest release from Monica Murphy.

In the previous books in this series, I didn’t like Tristan in the slightest. I’d be surprised if many readers did! But I think when a character is a complete man whore/douche canoe, it’s exciting for them to have a book, because you know that they’ll have a swift kick up the butt where love is concerned. And I couldn’t wait for Tristan to get that!!

What surprised me more than it maybe should have, was just how much I’d come to love and root for Tristan. I was desperate for him to get the girl, and I thought Alex was the perfect girl to knock this playboy right off his feet.

I loved the storyline, the dialogue, the dual POV, the twist (even though we knew it’s coming, the characters didn’t!!), seeing the rest of the Rules series gang, and just basically everything. This was a really addictive book, and a definite must read!!
