Where should I begin? Gage is the youngest Coulter and Becker is an only child. This was a good blend of emotions. He was always trying to measure up to his siblings and do what was expected. She was an overachiever with very high goals.

She has secrets. He has secrets. They finally found someone they thought they could trust with their secrets. But then things change. Ones secret is exposed by the one trusted to keep it. Trust is broken.

Trust is key to a relationship and it was nice to see it

This was an extremely enjoyable and sweet story. That drew me in from the start and kept me engaged throughout. I really liked both lead characters Gage and Beckett and thought they were perfect for each other. And that their relationship was paced well. There was also little in the way of angst and it was great to meet other members of the Coulter family. Whose books I've not had a chance to read. And I would definitely recommend Gage to others. Especially if you are a fan of the Player boo

I've not read the first three books in this series and I plan to do that soon because Fox, Ransom, and Gage have been pretty amazing reads.

Becker has been through a tough time in the past and is now attempting to live some semblance of a regular college life. But getting trapped in a bathroom at a frat party one night and being forced to witness a couple get busy was not part of the plan. Being unable to keep her eyes the guy who catches her voyeurism, she bursts out of the room and escapes th

One sign of a good series is that each book becomes your favorite. The Player series is a good one. Yep, I fell for Gage, too. The youngest sibling, he felt the stress of college grades, getting the starting spot on the Basketball team, and his dad's failing health. He didn't need to add a love life to this salad. He was being responsible, finding a tutor to help him up his grades, he sure didn't expect her to be the woman he'd been caught in a situation with as his savior. Not to mention she wa ...more

I have read all the books in this series and have loved them all but I think gage and Becker's story is my favorite.
Both come from families that expect a lot of them and have put pressure on them just in different ways.
Becker is trying to navigate her life after the prom incident without her father's support or belief that what she says happened, happened. She lost her mother and now her father is over protective and also can't necessarily be around her because it hurts too much as she looks lik

Gage and Echo's stories are my favorite in The Player Series. Loved that Echo stood up to Gramps and told him what she thought of him. Bravo to Echo. Gage is so cute in this book. He tries so hard to do the right thing with Becker, but he always manages to screw things up. When talking to his brothers, they listen to let him come to the conclusion of what he did and figure out what he needs to do. I really liked Becker, she is smart, quiet and independent. She has a secret that she has been livi ...more

I received and read this book as an ARC.

I love all the Coulter Brothers and every book i read becomes my favorite.. Gage is the youngest of all the Coulter brothers. He feels that he has to live up to his father’s and brothers fame, so he’s feeling the pressure. He is struggling to make his father proud, be on the starting basketball team and keep up his grades as well. When his college work starts to suffer he gets a call from the academics department saying he either brings up the grades or h

Gage came from a long line of extraordinaire athletes and was expected to carry the family's legacy. Becker was a very studious child that lost her mother at a young age and never knew how to bond with her father. Gage accumulated so much stress that his grades were tanking (legacy in danger). Becker was always conforming to her father's demands and dated an ......... Becker encountered Gage receiving ....... from her hiding spot in the restroom. Gage rescued Becker from an insensitive ....... b ...more

Gage has the talent. He has the dream. Yet real life keeps getting in the way. His grades are slipping, his father's sick and one chance at salvaging his spot on the team, lays in the hands of his greatest distraction. Becker is on her way to making her dreams into reality, when her fast pace hits a large speed bump. The big man on campus with the ego to match needs a helping hand. Can she let go of her preconceived notions and finally see the man. What I admire most about Nana Malone is that he ...more

Love this! Gage is a great character and so is Becks. They both have family pressure to deal with. All the players have their own unique story but I think this is one of the more emotional ones. What make this player different from all the others is how he takes patience and compassion to a whole new level. There's intrigue, family drama and everlasting love in the mix. Beck's fathers behavior is appalling, I wanted to reach into the pages and smack him. Gage grandfather attitude hasn't improved ...more

Gage and Becker had really good chemistry. I do have to admit, that at the beginning of the book I had to keep reminding myself that Becker was the female lead. But, I didn't feel too bad when Gage told her Becker was a guy's name. Lol.

Both Gage and Becker had some of the same concerns. Each coming from famous families, and all the trappings that go along. I really liked that Gage and Becker had each other's backs. It might not be something you would expect from some young adults.

A sweet, sexy s

Gage is the youngest Coulter. And feels that he has to live up to his father’s and brothers fame, so he’s feeling the pressure. Then his college work starts to suffer and he needs a tutor.
Becker has had a really bad experience with a jock. Her father has her on a tight leash since her mother died and unfortunately the jock is her father’s associate’s son. She’s feeling pressured into following a course she really doesn’t want to do. She’s trying to raise enough money to go to New York, after she

I am voluntarily reviewing this arc of this book. Gage is a basketball ball player Becker is just a student who wants to succeed and not be bothered by her father n his choice of a boyfriend for her. Becker is wanting to earn this internship award she's unlikely to get it due to actual year in college but she wants to try. Their advisor sets them up for her to tutor him due to his grades. This book will surprise you regarding what happened in the past. I loved seeing the siblings from the prior ...more

I love the book and the whole series!!! Nana alone us on fire right now. This is Gage and Becker story. It gives a realistic view of what happens in college. I actually felt like I was there because I remember my daughter telling me things like this happening. This book deals with a touchy subject with class. I love Gage and how he treated Becker and the compassion and patience he had for her. His protectiveness was on another level for a young man. Becker was a strong young woman who was dealt ...more

Gage is the youngest coulter and trying to go to school, play basketball to follow in all of his families footsteps, deal with his fathers illness and the family scandal about ransom. Gage's grades start to show the stress he is under so he needs a tutor where is how he meets Becker "Becks" Johnson. To watch these two meet and get to know each other and help each other is great. Nana Malone again keeps you wanting more of this series by keeping all the other family members in the story. You are ...more

Nana's love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin. It was a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana, and Nana was a precocious thirteen. She's been in love with kick butt heroines ever since. With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters.
