The Play

By Elle Kennedy

Briar U Series Book 3
Genre: College Romance

Release Day: October 7th, 2019


What I learned after last year’s distractions cost my hockey team our entire season? No more screwing up. No more screwing, period. As the new team captain, I need a new philosophy: hockey and school now, women later. Which means that I, Hunter Davenport, am officially going celibate…no matter how hard that makes things.

But there’s nothing in the rulebook that says I can’t be friends with a woman. And I won’t lie—my new classmate Demi Davis is one cool chick. Her smart mouth is hot as hell, and so is the rest of her, but the fact that she’s got a boyfriend eliminates the temptation to touch her.

Except three months into our friendship, Demi is single and looking for a rebound.

And she’s making a play for me.

Avoiding her is impossible. We’re paired up on a yearlong school project, but I’m confident I can resist her. We’d never work, anyway. Our backgrounds are too different, our goals aren’t aligned, and her parents hate my guts.

Hooking up is a very bad idea. Now I just have to convince my body—and my heart.

Amber’s Review:

And once again , Elle Kennedy has written a perfectly lovely book. And agin, I was sad to have read is as quickly as I did.

My prediction was wrong though. Following The Risk, I’d taken a guess that this story would be Mike Hollis’ story and I was wrong.  The Play features Hunter Davenport – whom was scorned by Summer in The Chase. This time around, Hunter has decided to lead a celibate life seeing as his actions may have caused his teams loss during the season ending championship the previous year.

With sex off the table, Hunter gets to truly know his psychology class partner, Demi.  Demi has a long term boyfriend so she’s off limits to Hunter.

This is a fast paced story that keeps the reader on her toes. Once again, the Briar U series is fabulous and I hope there are more books to come.
