Fair Play is about a woman named Ashlyn and a man named Noah, who happens to be her older brother's best friend...and the guy she has avoided since her crush-gone-bad days. Now her director thinks that Noah is the key to her creativity, she has no choice but to collaborate with her worst enemy. Everything Ashlyn thought she wanted is put to the test and the guy she swore she was over still has her in his grasp.
Tracy A. Ward's novel, Fair Play, was an absolute sensual read, with a splash of romance and drama. The novel was reasonable paced, the dialogue felt right, and the characters felt real. I felt like every page was sizzling with the chemistry that seemed to be bouncing off of both Ashlyn and Noah. Speaking of chemistry and characters, I felt that Tracy A. Ward was able to both realistically and wondrously bring to life the characters. They seemed both real yet so unique.
If you haven't yet picked up Fair Play, I recommend you do so today.
Summary from Goodreads:
Writing three plays for a nationally acclaimed theater in Phair, Texas, wasn’t supposed to put my inheritance at risk and force me into constant contact with Noah Blake--the very guy I love to hate. But with one chance to prove to my controlling father that I can succeed as a playwright, I’ve developed a major case of writer’s block.
Cue Noah, my older brother’s best friend and the guy I’ve avoided since my crush-gone-bad days. And now my director thinks he’s the key to unleashing my creativity. He thinks Noah is my muse. Discovering the fate of the theater is also in my hands, I have no choice but to collaborate with my worst enemy. But it’s more than just a great scene Noah inspires. Now everything I thought I wanted is put to the test. And the guy I swore I was over still has a hold on my heart.
