We meet Meg McBride briefly towards the end of Fight With Me. She has a brief encounter with Jules & Will where she expresses some serious animosity towards Will. In the beginning of Play With Me you quickly learn why Meg is hostile towards him. Will is one of the four Montgomery brothers who all seem to be made from the sexy gene pool. He is a hot quarterback who can be a famous arrogant butt at times but when push comes to shove, Will is actually sweet and protective. Will is essentially living his dream as a football star. He's worked hard to get where he is and life for him is all about the game. That is, until he meets Megan McBride. Meg takes him by surprise when she instantly rejects him upon their first encounter. I loved Meg as a heroine. She is a woman who loves a sexy car, has a tattoo, used to sing in a rock band. To me, she was so genuine. She is a nurse working at the Seattle Children's Hospital in the cancer ward. She has a difficult job, but she loves it and she works hard. She gave up her career as a singer/musician when her best friend Leo moved to L.A. leaving her behind. Meg has had to overcome a harsh childhood and has dealt with the people who she has loved most in the world abandoning her. She definitely has trust issues not readily opening her heart to anyone. Will challenges her and even though she had a hard time voicing her feelings for him, he was simply too hard to resist. Will pulls out all the stops and this is wonderfully romantic and, as always, gave me the warm and fuzzies and is full of goofy grin loveliness. This story is hopeful, beautiful, compelling and it’s full of humor, passion, compassion and uplifting happiness. It’s paced beautifully allowing time for the relationship to believably develop, giving Meg chance to slowly reveal the reasons behind her doubts & for Will to fully understand how to help her heal. Kristen Proby has once again provided a very romantic tale with little angst and a whole lot of holy hotness. I love the fact that we get to catch up with the other couples from the previous books and get glimpses as to the other characters for future books. I am hooked.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The story was very average. I've listened to and read much better contemporary romance stories. Some stories have little to no plot but the books are engaging and some have heavy plots which keep me glued to my seat and I end up reading or listening to the story in one go.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Will is cocky and sexy, he sounds like an interesting character.
Some of the dialogue was cheesy and I got fed up of hearing Will saying 'Babe' all the time.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Mack?
I think Leah Mallach or Saskia Maarleveld would be better narrators. Jennifer Mack made this book sound like a high school story. When she narrates Will's parts, it sounds ridiculous.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Unfortunately it was just not for me. It reads like a steamy high school drama.
If you could sum up Play With Me in three words, what would they be?
Fun, sexy and great
Who was your favorite character and why?
Megan....like how she allow her man to just take care of her after first being afraid.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Play with me
Any additional comments?
This book kept me very attentive and wanting to listen to the other books.
