“Ruthless Player” (Westfall U #2) – R.C. Stephens

*Read my ARC review!

Holland

Hockey winger and campus hottie, Cole Davis, might be an MVP with the ladies, but I’m not falling for a player… not with medical school on the line.

With our best friends dating, our forced proximity is inevitable.

 That doesn’t mean I have to like it—or the way he makes me feel. Like I’m missing out and there’s more to life than sitting on the sidelines.

It only takes one moment of weakness to remind myself why I should have stayed away from Cole.

 He might be a ruthless player, but nothing about this is a game.

Cole

Holland Donovan knows exactly what she wants out of life— and it isn’t me.

She’s not looking for any distractions, and I’m a one-night kind of guy, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting her.

 From the first electric kiss—I know one night will never be enough.

 I just need to convince her that I’m in it for the long haul—this isn’t just about scoring.

 On the ice I’m a pro at blocking shots and stealing passes, but when it comes to Holland the rules change.

I won’t stop fighting for her, for us, until I make her mine.

Knives Out meets One of Us is Lying! In this twisty thriller a group of famous TikTokers begin turning on each other when one member is found dead at their beachfront Malibu mansion.

35 million followers. One dead body.

The six teenagers who make up the Lit Lair have it made. A beachfront mansion, millions of followers, stunning good looks, and sponsorship deals worth more money than they ever dreamed. They live together, making videos about their perfect lives.

Except it’s not so perfect after one of them turns up dead in the infinity pool. When the group TikTok account starts posting cryptic messages, the police stop looking outside the house for suspects—and start looking straight at them. Everyone in the Lit Lair had reasons why their lives would have been easier without Sydney Reynolds.

But only one of them killed her.
