Playing Hard To Get

Playing Hard To Get


Everyone's a player on The Golden Eagles football team . . .

From TikTok sensation and New York Times bestselling author of Lancaster Prep Monica Murphy comes the first instalment in her scorching sports romance series, The Players.

Knox Maguire is the star player on the football team and the King of campus.

Everyone loves him but no one pays attention to me.

When I become his English tutor, things are kept strictly business.

Yet Knox is impossible to resist. Next thing I know, we're getting hot and heavy in the library.

When Knox admits he can't stop thinking about me, I have a realization.

I can't stop thinking about him either.

Instead of keeping my distance, I pull him in closer. Until somehow, we're spending all of our time together and I find myself falling for him. Hard.

But is this star athlete playing a game with my heart . . .
