Our weekend together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college, Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother landed his dream job. It should have...

    I absolutely loved this book. I love it when you get two characters who are just made for each other. The story flowed brilliantly and pretty much from the very first chapter I was hooked

    I have re read it twice and will probably read again and again

    I love when two well-known authors get together and write a book. I wasn’t disappointed with J.S. Scott and Ruth Cardello writing as both are gifted writers.

    Well Played has the making of a movie, a friend who been betrayed by his best friend and fiancé, the sister of the best friend who secretly loves the one betrayed.

    Graham an upcoming football star gets the surprise of his life when he goes to visit his best friend. Hurt and vulnerable he turns to his peanut (Lauren) for comfort.

    Fabulous book.. I loved the combining of the two authors, really you could not tell, they have gelled perfectly.

    The relationship between Lauren and Graeme was believable, I enjoyed the way the story gave us insight into their past relationship, it filled it out and gave us a greater understanding of both.

    Lauren's quirky ways, being a geek, brilliant and her issues was well written.

    Having someone at your back that has their own trials like Graeme was very believable.

    I would definitely recommend this story, it has all the emotive things you need for a great read. Heart break, longing, romance, achievement, lust, connections, love..

    Well done to both authors.

    I reviewed honest and openly, it is my own thoughts and feelings

    Authors J.S. Scott and Ruth Cardello have delivered a perfect TOUCHDOWN!!

    I read this book in one sitting. I am a lover of sport romances and friends to lovers too and this beauty just offered me all that and more.

    After finding Graham's fiance in a very (what shall we call it) compromising position with her brother, Lauren is stricken with the burden to be the one who will possibly destroy Graham's heart by revealing the truth. She loves Graham, she has, ever since she was a kid, he has been as much as an important part of her life growing up like a brother, only those sibling feelings were becoming something more complicated lately and she didn't see Graham like a brother, she ached for his touch and the realisation of what her brother had done hit her like a freight train, could she possibly have a chance to get closer to Graham?

    Graham has had to overcome many obstacles to be the man he is today. His success came at a hefty price and he has worked damn hard to fulfil his dream of becoming a pro football player. There are two people who have always been at his side and supported him from early age, Lauren and her brother. They have been best friends forever and he sees them as the family he never had. Now with his life in order and a future with his fiance things are looking up, however as we all know what they say about the best laid plans, nothing prepares Graham to find out of the betrayal of the two people who supposed to love him the most, the confession from Lauren lips about what went down between her brother and his girlfriend leaves him cold. The feeling however, is not a prolonged one, and he suddenly realises the relationship wasn't based on love, he is almost relieved. Never in a million years he was prepared to all of a sudden feel something so powerful for Lauren, is like a blindfold was lifted from his eyes and he was seeing her from the first time.

    When the two of them act on their emotions, this brings a world of complications and doubts. One thing is for sure though, they are both up to an unchartered territory and neither imagine what life suddenly has thrown at them. Graham thinks the game of football is a challenging one, he never expects to find himself fighting for something bigger. Lauren finds herself asking if Graham could be an eligible receiver of her love and devotion. Only one way to find out..

    All I can say is this story was wonderful. Well written and with plenty of unbridled passion, of course its is not surprise coming from these two magnificent writers.

    Well Played is certainly a must read of 2018 and I can't wait to read the next book by them.

    What should be a happy weekend for all of them turns out to be a betrayal when Jack is caught with Grahams fiancé

    Graham and Lauren grew up together, Lauren her brother Jack and their father were a family to Graham that he never had. Graham grew up in foster homes under difficult circumstances because of this he’s determined to have a better life as a professional football player, but along the way he’s stepped on some people which he’s not proud of. Graham is also keeping a very personal and painful secret from Lauren.

    Lauren is brilliant but she’s very insecure about herself. She’s see’s herself as not very attractive and needing to loose weight. Graham is her best friend and he also has her heart, but has no idea. The weekend they are supposed to be celebrating starts something between the two of them that’s always been there but Graham refused to let himself love Lauren because of his personal secret he’s kept from her.

    Lauren and Graham start a journey together and learn a lot about themselves and each other. I loved this book it’s very heartwarming and deals with a subject that affects many people.

    When reading a collaboration between authors you can sometimes tell the difference between the two while reading, but Well Played is so well done it flows together seamlessly. Don’t miss out on this book.

    Lauren caught her brother Jack red-handed with his bestfriend’s fiance on his bed. Not a sight she’d ever wanted to see nor imagine, specially from her brother. She was torn if she’d tell Graham about or let them discover the truth. But Lauren’s conscience was guilt-tripping her. Graham was also her friend… more than a friend… he was the man she’d been crushing on forever. But Graham didn’t look at her that way.

    Lauren caught her brother Jack red-handed with his bestfriend’s fiance on his bed. Not a sight she’d ever wanted to see nor imagine, specially from her brother. She was torn if she’d tell Graham about or let them discover the truth. But Lauren’s conscience was guilt-tripping her. Graham was also her friend… more than a friend… he was the man she’d been crushing on forever. But Graham didn’t look at her that way. Star football player Graham had already planned his life – professional football career, marriage and a happy home. Lauren was his bestfriend’s sister, extremely smart and a smashing beauty, but he kept his distance. When her brother stole his fiance from him, he was devastated and could never trust again.

    I had such a marvelous time reading this. I liked that this wasn’t an insta-love kind of relationship although I didn’t approve of how Graham immediately slept with Lauren after the whole betraying fiasco. Felt like it was a revenge sex and I couldn’t help but feel bad for the girl, even if she was full on board with the idea. Graham’s anger issues and ugly past really did a number on him, and I understood how this prevented him from believing in true love. How these two struggling lovers faced their personal demons was what made this story all the more engaging to read.

    This story is great not only for sports fans but also to those who like best friends turned to lovers trope.

    Ruth Cardello and JS Scott sure know how to make women swoon. Well Played was a well written book and I commend these talented women for a job well done. I couldn’t tear my eyes away from the book once I started reading it!

    Well done! Ms. Scott & Ms. Cardello have written a truly entertaining & steamy book. Graham & Lauren each have their own unique challenges in life. Although Graham has had more than his fair share. I loved the flow of their developing relationship, but I did think the focus on parts of Graham's past was a bit overdone. Overall, I’ve always enjoyed the friends to lovers type stories.

    I’ve always liked knowing the “hows” and “whys”, but felt the reasoning behind Hope and Jack’s betraya

    I’ve always liked knowing the “hows” and “whys”, but felt the reasoning behind Hope and Jack’s betrayal was lacking. But that is probably just me, but I was disappointed there wasn’t really any visible start of a resolution between Graham and Jack, they were supposed to have been best friends after all.

    Overall, a fantastic story with a great pace that keeps you wanting to know what happens next. Those are always the best, most fun books to read. Now I would love to see these two authors come up with a book for Ty (definitely) and possibly even a HEA for Jack.

    One door closed one door open.

    It’s different when u read this, not her usual style, a little bit long n repeated, maybe they r co-writer. The lines not that bad but just don’t get into the points when it needs, not clearly cut when it’s necessary.

    The character ty is interesting. The childhood friendship, support each other even they were young.
