Synopsis via Goodreads:

The Good Girl Vs. The Player

Round one begins...

Trina Clemons needed the money. Why else would she - the most organized, prepared student in school - spend the summer as a nanny and partner with the biggest slacker ever? Now she's ready to tackle nannyhood with her big binder of research and schedules. Just don't ask her about the secret job of "fixing" the bad habits of a certain high school player...

Slade Edmunds prefers easy hook-ups, and Trina is definitely not his type. She's all structure and rules, while Slade wants to just have fun. Fortunately, Trina has no idea about the bet Slade made with his best friend that he can totally get her to unwind by the end of summer...

Then the weirdest thing happens. There's chemistry. A lot of it. 

But nothing gets between a boy and a girl like a big, fat secret...

Rating: 3.5 So cute!
Cover comment: Adorable!

Trina and Slade are such an adorable couple I couldn't help but be drawn into their story. Author Lisa Brown Roberts puts the heat and the heart into heartwarming in her latest YA contemporary romance, Playing the Player. Opposites attract and they do so in such a sweet and fun way. What a lovely summer read!

Slade with his quick humor and Trina's good girl ways made for amusing moments as these two play nanny to two adorable five year olds over summer vacation. Watching Trina change her impressions about Slade made me like her even more and Slade as a 'player' was cute from the getgo. The author had just the right mix of awkward teen with the need to find one's self to keep me invested and the main character's chemistry kept me glued to the pages. Don't forget to pack this one on any kind of trip, no matter the time of year. Playing the Player gets under your skin and warms your heartstrings. I really liked it!

About the author

Lisa Brown Roberts still hasn't recovered from the teenage trauma of nearly tweezing off her eyebrows and penciling them in for an entire school year. This and other painful memories inspire her to write books in which girls big on wit and heart earn happy endings with swoony guys...eventually. 
Her almost forever home is Colorado, though she occasionally pines for the days when she lived within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. Her house is full of books, boys, four-­legged prima donnas, and lots of laughter.

There is a tour-wide giveaway of a Nanny Survival Kit (nail polish, lip balm, journal, summer scrapbook stickers, love scrapbook stickers, love quote bookmark) for US winner or a $20 Amazon Gift Card if international.
