Renee Rose ~ The Player ~ Release Blitz / ARC Review




He might be the perfect antidote.

The temptation I need to lure me back to the side of the living.



The Player, a forbidden dark mafia standalone romance from USA Today bestselling author Renee Rose, is live now!








Flynn Taylor, rock ‘n roll heartthrob, plays fast and loose.

He’s with different girls every night. Yes, girls plural.

On the brink of becoming not just a Chicago sensation, but an American icon,

he’s everything I should avoid.

Then again, maybe it doesn’t matter.

I’m so damaged, I’m not even capable of a relationship.

He might be the perfect antidote.

The temptation I need to lure me back to the side of the living.

He could help me get over my trauma. Attempt physical intimacy.

If it goes wrong–no harm, no foul, right?

If only I can keep my overprotective bratva brother from threatening

to kill him if he even touches me…







Fall in love today!

My ARC Review:

Oh I loved this one!!! Flynn and Nadia’s story is just awesome….. full of some intense emotions, heartbreaking but so full of courage and some hot passionate scenes!

Nadia is the sister of Adrian (The Cleaner), who got kidnapped, raped and tortured before Adrian set her free. She suffers terribly from nightmares and triggers and has been a recluse in her flat…. until she starts for fall for Flynn, the guitar player and brother of Story (The Enforcer), and she finds she can sit, watch and listen to him in the club and not have a panic attack.

Flynn is known for being a player, always with a different girl, but he likes Nadia and but does not realise how affected she is when he first sees her watching him. But Flynn is drawn to her in a way like no one else and can’t stay away, even though the rest of the Bratva are threatening him to keep away from her!!

These two are just awesome together, how Flynn sets her at ease and cares for her, he is the calm she needs and manages to quieten her triggers when they start. Flynn’s mum has panic attacks so he has an idea of how to be around her. They fall hard for each other, but their ride is not an easy one with lots of hurdles for them to both struggle against. Nadia doesn’t want to be the broken girl anymore and is determined to overcome her triggers, if Flynn will just carry on and help her, but she knows its just friends with benefits and he is not looking for a relationship, and she is too damaged. But Flynn develops some deep feelings for Nadia is wants more with her, but is unsure how to proceed without pressuring her.

Nadia has had some horrible things done to her, but her grit and determination to overcome this shine through, she is an absolute trooper in this, battling on!! Flynn is the calm, he always seems to know just what to do and how to act, so that she feels normal and empowered, he was so good with her, they make the perfect couple! This was a brilliant addition to this fantastic Chicago Bratva series, highly recommended reading!
