First, I was super excited to have a book about Chloe.
Second, I was really excited to see how this series would end.
Third, tears of joy falling from my eyes.

So, Foul Play unfortunately focused more on the ongoing mystery than Chloe which kind of made me a little sad. But don't worry guys! She still meets a guy, a bad boy, who saves her life. I was rooting for Chloe and Vincent (bad guy) from the start because their romance was so sweet.

Chloe is the youngest sister in this family and she has the

I couldn't wait to start reading the third and last book in this series! At the end of book 2 we got a hint of what Chloe was up to and I was to excited to finally get her story. Foul Play is a perfect ending to this series. It's filled with an amazing romance, two great characters, a bit of mystery and suspense and three epilogues!

The extraordinarily talented Jordan Ford (Melissa Pearl) never ceases to amaze me and I find myself falling more and more in love with her writing after each new release. Foul Play is Chloe's story and I think that right from the beginning her's has been my most anticipated read of the trilogy. Let me just say that she certainly did not disappoint this ultimate fang
This book was a fabulous ending to a great and thrilling series and proof again why Jordan Ford is an auto-buy-author for me.
Chloe and Vincent's story is somehow slow burn and intense and so wonderfully heartwarming ♡
Family and friendship, faith, redemption and forgiveness all woven together into a wonderful adventure of suspense and romance.

I love how Chloe believes in Vincent right from the start, he deserves someone in his corner so badly and sweet and stubborn Chloe was just the right person

I absolutely loved this book! Foul Play was nothing like the other books in the series to me. Chloe and Vincent's story had suspense, mystery, love, and betrayal all wrapped up in one.

In this final book of the trilogy, Chloe reaches out to someone, after an unfortunate incident, who no one thinks she ever should be around...Vincent Mancini. He's the brother to a murderer, the nephew to a known criminal, and cousin to a neighborhood bully. Nobody likes the Mancini family, why should Vincent be a

Chloe’s loves to help out, which she does at a soup kitchen. Unfortunately she’s attacked, she’s saved but can they end up together. Lovely story that definitely had my interest. Wonderful author of many books.

Foul Play continues the story of the Barlow sisters; the focus on the youngest sister Chloe this time. Chloe is a light in the darkness. The rare soul that believes love overcomes all. She is good through and through, sometimes too innocent and naive, but she has a strength born out of conviction to make the world better for all. She's pure beauty. Vincent Mancini believes that hate rules the world or at least his part of it. His life is full of pain, loneliness; it's ugly and everyday is a figh ...more

Foul Play is the third and final book in the Barlow Sisters Trilogy. This time we focus on Chloe, the youngest of the three. She is a year younger than Maddie and Max, but is stubborn and passionate about what she believes. She knows it is a tough, hard world out there, but is convinced that if she can spread some goodness - just a little bit at a time - then eventually, the world will be a better place. This could lead to a whole world of hurt, but luckily for Chloe, she has a warrior who wants ...more

Great finish to the series. I didn't think I'd enjoy this one more than the last, but have to admit that it actually just nudged its way into my favorite of the series.

In the first two books, Chloe came across as sweet, but also a bit fluffy - e.g. the kind of girl just looking for her prince charming. I was pleasantly surprised to see how off base that first impression was and that she definitely had more substance to her. All of the Barlow sisters seem to get themselves into trouble, but alway

>I am an independent reviewer. This book is the 3rd book in the Barlow Sisters trilogy ends in an HEA. Chloe is the youngest and most bubbly of the Barlow sisters. Her support of bad boy, Vincent, puts Chloe on his radar. He comes to her rescue and they both feel an instant attraction. The true story of Vincent's violent home life is revealed to the reader, causing the appeal of Vincent to increase 1000%.

FOUL PLAY is book three in the Barlow Sisters series and is a sports related/"bad boy"/suspensful/young adult romance. So, I've read several books (at least 7) by author Jordan Ford and every time, I think, "This is my favorite!" but then she comes out with another book and I change my mind! THIS one's my ABSOLUTE favorite! Chloe and Vincent's story just gave me all the feels. There's an achingly sweet romance, a thrilling mystery, tension filled twists and of course the PERFECT happy ever after ...more

I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy from the author.

Foul Play is my favorite book out of this series. Chloe is the younger sister of twins Maddie and Max, and the hero is Vincent Mancini, the "bad-boy" that is mentioned in the previous books. I have always had a soft heart for the misunderstood bad boys, the ones no one wants to associate with. Chloe is a very loving and nurturing individual. She likes to see the good in everyone and sees something in Vincent that others do not. I loved thei

This entire standalone YA contemporary romance trilogy about the Barlow sisters has been absolutely brilliant, however this last instalment has been my absolute favourite. Chloe is the youngest and sweetest Barlow sister, she is intent on helping as many people in life as she can. One night after helping out at the soup kitchen across town she is attacked and things would have been alot worse if not for her rescuer Vincent Mancini.

He is the kid from the wrong side of the tracks, however Chloe s

Chloe is the only one to see the good in Vincent. Vincent falls hard an fast for the youngest Barlow sister, and soon finds himself protecting her from the people in his life. In her quest to free Vincent's brother from prison, Chloe will stumble upon two killers that will threaten her life.
Wow, I thought Chloe and Vincent were perfect for each other. Chloe will bring light and love into his life, while Vincent will protect her from darkness. These are sweet, unique, well written characters. Lik

A bittersweet end to another wonderful trilogy. Jordan Ford has done it again. The Barlow Sisters are the sisters you have always wanted. Young and just coming into who they want to be. At times afraid, but willing to do what scares them to make sure it is right. Chloe being the youngest is by far not the least timid. She knows what she wants but has not yet been able to find who she wants. Or has she? The sweet young give full of romance just might find another side of the dark, brooding boy fr ...more

I just don't have words to describe how much I enjoyed this story!
Chloe is a super sweet character, and from the very first book I hoped she would find true love and be happy. And Vincent, despite the tough exterior, is a teenager just trying to survive the adversities of a bad family.
When Chloe and Vincent begin to communicate through notes and then meet, it's apparent that their feelings are very strong, and when they both begin to investigate Vincent's brother's arrest, things get really stra

I love this books is much!!!! Honestly this book easily ranks in my top 5! This books is so sweet in so many ways but nothing compares to how kind and protective Vincent is towards Chloe. I love reading about how she brings out a different side in him that was there all along but hidden because he was a victim of circumstances. Seeing her slowly peel back layers and watching him respond to her was so entertaining and heart warming. I was devastated when it was over because I wanted to read more! ...more

I think this might be my new fave series by this author, even though I adored the BigPlay novels.
This is the 3rd book and ran parallel with the first two, they linked so well and offered closure on some points from the other two books.
This one had not only young love but a lot of suspense, drama and danger happening.
I loved this allegedly bad boy and his softer side. The reasons for his actions and behaviour and the influence that Chloe had on him.
Epilogues...yes more than one. I loved seeing a

This is my favourite book so far out of all the Barlow sisters' story. This book is sweet yet dangerous and I am just all into that. With just the right amount of romance, love and fighting against injustice, what could I possibly ask for more than that?

Chloe is such a sweet girl who likes to see the good in others and the world and honestly she is so pure in her own way. Vincent is as the author says in her author's note that he is a dark knight and I cannot argue with that because he is. Also

This was the last book in this series. I have only read the 2nd one and this one. But out of the two I absolutely loved this one. It is like a modern day fairy tale of forbidden love. He saves her from almost being attacked and raped. She helps him save his brother. He saves her father from being shot. I absolutely loved this one. It was amazingly written from the beginning to the end. Gripping with some twists and turns on what was going to happen next and some parts where you didnt see that co ...more

This book is the last in the Barlow sisters. I would say you need to read them in order to appreciate how different the girls are. Even though each book catches you up they do leave you hanging wondering what the next sister's story will be. Vincent and Chloe are the sweetest couple. Bad boy meets a girl who only sees the good in people. Together they find a friendship and more when their paths cross. You will feel so much for Vincent's character and you will cheer this fabulous couple on to the ...more

It has been one heck of a ride with the Barlow sisters. Maddie, Max, and Chloe won me over on the first page of Strike Out, and had me excited for them on the last page of Foul Play.
Foul Play was my favorite book of the series. Chloe and Vincent are the cutest couple. They have a lot of odds stacked against them and still manage to come out on top.
While each book in the Barlow sisters' trilogy is a stand alone, I recommend reading them in order. Each book adds to the previous one. It may be some

This is the last book in the series and I do believe that Jordan has made this book, not only the best, but perfect. Every question that you had was answered. The chemistry between the two characters is off the charts. You can feel it oozing off of the pages. There is a feeling of something that I can't describe. You get a relief once the book is done because Jordan just wraps this book/series up wonderfully! You need to finish this series. If you haven't started this series, you need too! So mu ...more

Chloe is the sweetest person ever. I just love her character. And Vincent... 😍😍😍
I love how he has a terrible upbringing, shitty life and still manages to be sweet and insecure about Chloe. He is just the cutest.

Miss Ford has done it again. She took us on a wild, dangerous ride but gave us some sweet mixed in to the sucky. Chloe's story was the one I was really looking forward to and it did not disappoint. It was filled with emotion and suspense around every corner, leaving you reeling. There were times I found myself holding my breath in anticipation of what the next page held. It was a page flipping good read. A perfect end to an emotionally charged series.

I loved it so much! It made me cry, laugh, love, scream. Yes, many emotions were going through my body while reading. I won't post much abuot the full story because of spoilers.

On this book we get to see Chloe and Vincent's story. Their relationship starts from a very sad situation, but who would thought that it could bring something magical? Many mysteries will be uncover. The lies, the crimes all will now be cleared up.

I absolutely loved this book! Jordan Ford has delivered another winner with Chloe and Vincent’s story and a grand-slam with this fabulous trilogy! Chloe has the biggest heart, and Vincent has the worst reputation. Together they have a fantastic story to share, wrapping up the threads of a mystery we get a taste of in Maddie and Max’s stories. This interwoven trilogy with capture your attention and keep you wrapped up until the very end!

Best of the series!

I knew I'd enjoy these two charecters, and I was right. :) This story was my favorite out of all the series. I love a good 'diamond-in-the-rough' character and Chloe is so sweet; they were a perfect match to cheer for. Loved all the epiloques at the end too. A recommendable series. Rated pg13 for minor language, mention of sex, and minimum violance.
