Two Boundless Stars
The Player, is a tale of a boy and a girl. Who meet in college. The boy a total player and the girl who wants a serious relationship.
Chloe, has been dealing with a tragic accident from her past. She finally decides to head to college. Traveling from England to Texas. Parker, not much of a fan. He’s a very cocky football player. Who seems to get around.
So, the writing was good. I’m not much of a fan of third person. I feel it’s harder to get a connection to the characters in general. I have read and loved third person before. So I came into this with an open mind.
Unfortunately, the way characters spoke in the book, I don’t think anyone in Texas really speaks that way. So I was a bit confused at first, Where the story was taking place. Also, the distance between places,. If you are traveling from Texas to Napa Valley. It would take you more than a day. Plus, the traffic in Texas is horrendous
I did like Chloe and Parker together. They really developed throughout the story. It was a good/could of been better. This story has a lot of potential. Like any reviewer I don’t like giving lower starred reviews. But I have to be honest about how I felt. The talent is there, I can see why others would totally love this story.
Overall, I give this a Two Boundless Stars.
