Play With Me
Anna Katmore
Released: November 28th 2013
She's prepared to play soccer to get her man, but she never bargained for the team's captain. 

Ryan Hunter's parties are legend. And tonight she's going to be there. 

Liza Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she's a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Liza craves, she's just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she's prepared to play ball to get her man. 

The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school. Ryan Hunter. 

My Review of Play With Me
I really enjoyed this quick contemporary novella. The romance is hot and the tension just right. I can’t wait to read more about this trio and hope there is more from them in the future. A light romantic read that’s fun and sucks you in easily.

It follows Liza Matthews as she gets ready to see her longtime friend Tony after a long summer without him. They’re thick as thieves since they were really little, but things change. Tony has his eyes on someone else, the malicious Chloe, even though Liza always dreamed she’d be the apple of his eye. Trying to win his affections back, she tries out for the soccer team and to her surprise, makes the team. Is Ryan, the soccer team’s captain responsible for that? Who is this legendary playboy who throws legendary parties? Liza is finally getting to go to one and sees a whole other side of Ryan. Will things heat up with Ryan’s eyes set on her and will Tony realize just what he’s lost by casting her to the side or will it be too late? Why is Ryan looking really dreamy to Liza, even though he’s making her work hard to be on the soccer team?

A great short romp in the world of these three characters. I look forward to more from this author and she definitely has a new fan of her work.

The quick-and-dirty:

I'm a girl with a passion for writing.

The genres you'll find me hanging out at are contemporary and paranormal YA, but I'm also snooping into some adult paranormal right now. All of them romances...of course.

The nitty-gritty:

I'm an Austrian lass--totally uncomplicated and up to anything fun. 

I grew up in Vienna, not by free will but because my parents decided to move there when I was only 4 years old. I. Hated. The. City. Everything about it. So right after graduation I moved back to Upper Austria, where I settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop. 

I've been a storyteller all my life. Already in kindergarten, I came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. My teacher would call me a liar. I call it the cornerstone of my writing career. 

People always told me you can't make a living with being an author. So when my first novella PLAY WITH ME came out and shot straight to the stars within the first week, I was totally dumbstruck. Took me a while to realize what was happening, LOL. 

And the personal stuff:

At the (awesome) age of seventeen, I met the love of my life. But he was a playboy, and I was so not going to be his next trophy. It took him another four years of fighting for me until I finally decided to give that "couple-thing" with him a shot. I'm now married to this man. ;-) 

We have an eleven-year-old son, and together we travel a lot...although I sometimes wish the trips were shorter because I can't wait to get back to my laptop and my many stories. Unless we're in Disneyland. No stress to go home then...
