Will Addison be able to set aside her pain and anger aside and see Julian for who is now or will she forever hold the past against him? Only one way to find out.
I liked The Play Maker but I didn’t love it. I had no problem setting the story aside to adult. It honestly could have been just me and nothing to do with the book itself. Because honestly this kind of story is right up my alley. With that being said at times I wanted to punch both characters in the face for acting younger than they were. But like I already said that just could be me. If you take a chance on The Play Maker I hope you enjoy it.

At the knock, I grab the cash and open the door.
My mouth drops open and my eyes grow wide. “Julian?” I stammer. “What are you doing here?”
“I wanted to see my girl.” He holds up the takeout bag. “I have food.”
I snatch the bag, then step into the hall, looking around. “Nope. Don’t see your girl anywhere.”
“Funny.” Julian places his hand on my abdomen and guides me back into the apartment, an amused look on his face.
Walking backward, I stop and turn from him when my feet feel the transition between hardwood and tile. I distance myself from him and hurry into the kitchen to gather dinnerware.
“Have you eaten?”
I get no response.
“Hello?!” I ask, glancing over my shoulder, catching him staring at my ass. “Take a picture. It’ll last longer.”
My comment jars him and he looks up at me, a smirk on his face. “I don’t need to take a picture.” He taps his temple. “I’ve got an image of that perfect ass right here.”
I snort. “Are you hungry? There’s more than enough for two.”
He nods, striding over to where I stand with two dishes in my hands.
“I am hungry, but not for food.”
Julian extends his arms and places them onto the countertop, caging me in. He leans toward my neck and inhales, making my eyes close. “You smell good.”
“I just showered,” I reply breathlessly, desperate to maintain my composure, quickly losing the battle.
His body flush against mine, his erection presses into my stomach as he dots the skin of my neck with soft kisses until he reaches the corner of my mouth.
“I love you,” he murmurs.
My body stiffens and eyes shoot open. I shake my head as I try to refute his words, but he covers my lips with his, staking his claim. I feel the flames ignite in the pit of my belly as he clutches my face, deepening the kiss. My lips part, welcoming his tongue into my mouth.
Kissing Julian is unlike anything else I’ve ever felt. I lose all sense of awareness as he continues his relentless, yet gentle pursuit to drown me in his affection. The feeling of his tongue tangling with mine adds fuel to the fire simmering in my core.
He lowers one hand to my waist, gripping it firmly to pull me even closer, causing my back to arch. Unable to stand on my weakened legs, I raise my arms and rest them on his shoulders. A loud crash suddenly stills our kiss.
“What was that?” I mumble against his mouth.
Pulling back, a grin appears. “The dishes…”
I raise my gaze from his eyes and notice my hands empty, the plates shattered on the floor. I smile. “It’s your fault. You can’t kiss me like that when I’m in the middle of something.” I lower my arms and walk to the closet, grabbing the broom. “You turn my brain to mush.”
“And what about your body?” he asks with raised eyebrows.
I quickly sweep up the pieces and place them into the trash, then put away the broom. “I think you already know the answer to that.”
