Review: Play Me by Katie McCoy

****4 Stars****
After reading Katie McCoy's debut novel, Game On, I was really excited to get more from her and she did not disappoint! The cover and the blurb will draw you in and once you start reading you won't want to stop. She excels at twisting a whole lot of sexy and sweet into a story that will pull you in and make you fall in love with each and every person you encounter! Play Me was completely different from her first novel but still oh so good!
Ella and Jake are both driven to succeed, but take different paths to doing that. We have Ella Thomas who is a serious classical musician who has hidden her whole life. She is shy and lacks confidence. She absolutely hates the spotlight being on her. On the other hand, we have Jake Matson who is living his dream of becoming a head chef in the restaurant world. He has worked his butt off to get to where he is today and even works the crazy hours to maintain his success. These two complement each other and make the other a better person. The chemistry is just off the charts explosive between them! I loved watching both characters grow throughout their story.
Play Me was a great combination of humor, passion, and drama. I loved all the side characters, like Dakota (Jake's best friend) and Ella's whole family was just hysterical. This was overall a good book. The only thing I didn't like was that the ending was a little bit too abrupt for my liking, with not even an epilogue as a conclusion. I definitely can't wait to see what else Katie McCoy has in store for us next!

Recipe For:
A Roll In The Hay Hot Crossed Buns Love


1 Chef (equal parts sexy and carefree)
1 Pianist (equal parts uptight and endearing)
1/8 inch of drywall between their apartments
2 opinions on everything

Combine all ingredients, mix vigorously, and be prepared for an explosion of heat.

Pianist Ella Thomas is training for the competition of her life. Finally in an apartment of her own, she can practice from dawn till dusk.
But she didn't bet on the sexy and frustrating neighbor keeping her up all night - even if he does cook like a maestro and kiss like it’s his job.

Jake Matson is living his dream as Head Chef at one of the most popular restaurants in San Francisco. He's easy going, flirtatious and not looking for love. He didn't expect to be completely distracted by the girl next door, whose buttoned-up appearance hides the seductive firecracker underneath.

What happens when opposites attract? As their tension fires up, can they create a new kind of music together or will everything boil over?
