Review: Grooming the Player by Allie K. Adams

Grooming the Player is a short humorous romance by Allie K. Adams. This one was novella length and was cute but predictable. Emma Rae is not one for relationships, but she does tend to pick up guys and turn them into projects. When she meets Ryan at a bar, he is wearing clothes that don't fit him correctly, he has a mullet and glasses. He can barely make a coherent sentence when it comes to speaking to her, but yet she is drawn to him and decides to help him out. They make a deal that she will teach him to be a player and be successful with women and she will get to attend the Delta DASH with him. It is the most exclusive party of the year, and she has always wanted to go. But the more they get to know each other, the closer they become. Soon real feelings are developing between them, and their relationship isn't as fake as it started out as. Can they take their fake relationship and turn it into something real?

I liked Ryan and Emma. They were cute together and I really enjoyed their playfulness. They were a great couple and I liked seeing them start to develop real feelings for each other. They had a lot of chemistry together, and were really hot for each other. Ryan really surprised me with his dirty talk! I knew he was sweet, but his sexy side was completely unexpected! Emma annoyed me at times with her mood swings. She came across as really bitchy one minute, and yet the next she was almost insecure and thought that Ryan was playing her. Besides that though, I thought that these two were really great together, and they seemed to be a great balance for each other. They were opposites in a lot of ways, and yet that is what made them work so well.

Overall, this was a cute and short new adult read. I enjoyed it despite my criticisms. I would say that this one wasn't anything really new or original, but it was a fun read regardless. I liked that it kept me laughing throughout, and things weren't all angst and drama. It was refreshing to get some comedy with my romance, and I am glad that they got their HEA. I will be interested to see what Allie K. Adams has in store for the next installment of the Campus Players series. I would recommend this story if you are looking for a quick and funny romantic read, especially if you are a fan of new adult books.
