Four Star Review: Getting Played by Mia Storm
Publisher: Tempest Books
Released: May 28, 2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Length: 350 Pages
Coach Marcus Leon has always played by the rules…until he meets Addaline Grace, the seventeen-year-old senior transfer on his Oak Crest High water polo team. Addie changes all the rules, mostly because she doesn’t play any games. But as off limits as she is, the more Marcus discovers about Addie, the more he finds himself…and the more he questions whether Addie Grace might just be worth risking everything for. For Addie, water polo is anger management. She’s driven and focused because it keeps her mind off other things…like the fact she destroyed her family. Her game plan is to stay invisible and graduate so she can leave her father and the crappy town he dragged her to in her wake. But when what starts as friendly completion with Marcus turns into more than a game, Addie has to decided if she’s willing to face down her demons…and possibly ruin the man she may or may not be falling in love with in the process. What happens when the only thing you need is the one thing you can’t have?

Marcus is pretty bored with his life. It's not where he thought it would be. He imagined it much differently. They all live in a small town. Marcus is a Girls Water Polo Coach. He loves Water Polo at least. The average popular Jock in High School. But still something is missing in his life.
Addie is a girl, she's lonely in many aspects. She has an alcoholic dad and she's paid no attention. Losing a part of her life. I would understand the need for someone to fill that hole.
As you can imagine, Marcus ends up acting on his feelings. I wasn't upset reading it and understood where both of them were coming from. Nothing is forced at all. They both wanted to be together. But it's a dangerous road to go down. Sometimes, when you really love someone, you don't pay attention to the red lights flashing.
For Mia, she honestly needed Marcus. Going through what she did in a short time, can make you want to be invisible. You don't want friends, you just wanna be alone.
This is an excellent read. This is the first one I've read from Mia Storm. She puts the story together flawlessly. I really enjoyed it. I'll have to read more of her books.
