(Briar U #3)
A brand-new standalone novel in the New York Times bestselling Briar U series!
What I learned after last year’s distractions cost my hockey team our entire season? No more screwing up. No more screwing, period. As the new team captain, I need a new philosophy: hockey and school now, women later. Which means that I, Hunter Davenport, am officially going celibate…no matter how hard that makes things.
But there’s nothing in the rulebook that says I can’t be friends with a woman. And I won’t lie—my new classmate Demi Davis is one cool chick. Her smart mouth is hot as hell, and so is the rest of her, but the fact that she’s got a boyfriend eliminates the temptation to touch her.
Except three months into our friendship, Demi is single and looking for a rebound.
And she’s making a play for me.
Avoiding her is impossible. We’re paired up on a yearlong school project, but I’m confident I can resist her. We’d never work, anyway. Our backgrounds are too different, our goals aren’t aligned, and her parents hate my guts.
Hooking up is a very bad idea. Now I just have to convince my body—and my heart.
HELLS YEA! LOVED THIS ONE!!
THE DATING GAME questions with Hunter and Demi:
1. HUNTER, THERE’S A RUMOR THAT YOU’RE A MONK. WHAT IS THAT ALL ABOUT ?
”After last season’s disastrous end, I vowed to make hockey my top priority. When you’re not having sex, working out is imperative for your sanity.”
2. WOW. DOES THAT MEAN YOU ARE NO LONGER GOING TO HAVE SEX EVER AGAIN?
”It’s only until the end of the season which will put me at one full year of celibacy once I cross the finish line. And then I’ll reward myself with an entire summer of sex.”
3. DEMI, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT HUNTER?
”I think he’s incredibly hot. He has a sexy mouth and a killer smile. And dimples. What is it with me and guys with dimples? It’s like my sexual kryptonite.”
4. WHICH PIECE OF DATING ADVICE FROM YOUR PARENTS DO YOU HOLD IN HIGH REGARD, DEMI?
“Like my mom always says, know your worth. Make them work for it.”
5. HUNTER, YOU GAVE YOURSELF A NICKNAME FOR DEMI TO CALL YOU. WHAT IS IT?
”I [gave her] permission to start calling me Big Daddy.”
6. WHAT WAS HER RESPONSE TO THAT?
Now that you’ve gotten to know a little bit about Hunter & Demi, you can read about how their relationship got started. From being classmates paired up for a project to becoming friends. And a vow of celibacy for Hunter that will drive Demi to desperate measures as she tests out his willpower.
THE PLAY is the third book in a spin-off series: Briar U. It can be read as a standalone. It’s a sports/college romance about friends to lovers. Fans of this genre are going to love this book. It was unputdownable.
