"Power Play" [New York Blades Series, Book 8] by Deirdre Martin

My Book Summary : Monica has been the lead actress on her soap opera for 10 years. She loves her job but doesn't always know if what she does is worth the money or not, especially when some of her friends think that to be an actress you need to be working on Broadway or pretty much anything other being on a soap, it's hard not to listen to their criticism.

Eric has just been traded onto the New York Blades, a hockey team, where he's the defenseman, and a team that his twin brother is already a part of. He has also recently been named one of People magazines hottest bachelors! So, when he's asked to do a cameo on a soap opera he has no problem with doing so, especially since it's one that he is a fan of himself. He plans on saying he's lines and hitting it big with the star of the show Roxie, who just happens to be Monica's character.

After his performance, he tries his "playboy" act on Monica and it turns into a disaster. Since, even though Eric is great looking, who would want to be hit on by someone saying corny lines over and over, definitely not Monica. However, soon after they meet Monica learns that her show is gaining a new cast member, and soon she realizes that this cast member would like nothing more than to take her spot light. So, Monica turns to her publicist to see what she can do to keep being noticed by her fans and everyone else. The problem is ... her publicist’s suggestion is to have a fake relationship with Eric for the NY Blades!

She knows that she's a good actress, so faking interest in a man she can't really stand, no problem! But after the good amount of time that they spend together, they become closer, and soon each of them aren't sure which parts the other is faking anymore and which parts are real.

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars!!! By reading the book summary on the authors website, at first I wasn't sure that I would be into this book. However, I am very happy that I gave this book a chance!! The banter & chemistry between Monica and Eric is charming and delightful to read!! You can't but route for the two to stay together!! Plus, the secondary characters from both of their lives was great to read about .... from the drama in acting to the male talk in the locker rooms!!

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK!!

My Previous Review(s) for this Series : Book 4

Book Teaser(s) :
"Because it's all I have!" Monica cried.
"That's not true," Eric countered fiercely. "You have me!"
The minute the words slipped from his mouth, Eric felt thunder in his head; he'd never said anything like that to any woman in his life. Meanwhile, Monica was looking at him warily.
"What does that mean, Eric?"
Eric struggled to put it into words. "It means I'm here. It means I'm your friend. It means . . . I don't know."
"That's great. Very helpful."
Eric looked away, feeling like an asshole. ~ within Chapter 14
