Player for Life by Shandi Boyes is the fourth book in the Perception Series. This series follows the band, Rise up, and its members. This story follows, Nick. Nick is the bad boy we all love and because of that, I have to say that this is the best book in this whole series. I love the cocky man Nick is but when he falls, he falls and it is amazing to read about it. Shandi Boyes again gives a book you can wrap yourself in and enjoy from beginning to end.
Nick is your typical player, cocky, headstrong, and thinks every female wants him. After getting caught sleeping with a band members girl, he needs time to really decide if he wants to remain the band. Enter Jenni, who wants to stay away from guys. She dated a player in the past and had her heart broken. Jenni doesn’t want to get hurt so she loves being with her friends and having fun. When Jenni meets Nick, she feels that all she attracts if players and tries very hard to stay away. Nick never has or wanted to get close to a female and Jenni breaks all his rules. Watching all the things these two have to face, and see that nothing will break this bond, makes this an even better read!
Shandi Boyes, truly did an amazing job and I loved that this book reached deeper levels then the other book. I loved how even with the strong attraction Nick and Jenni had, they tried so hard to remain friends. I am truly hooked on this series and in each you are able to get a look into what is going on with other members and their girlfriends. I give this book 5 stars and while yes this book can be read as a standalone, I think reading the other three books will help. This whole series is just wonderfully written and rock and roll romance that will leave you hooked and wanting more and more. WELL DONE SHANDI!!! This truly is an amazing rock and roll romance with heartache, drama, and craziness.
