Slow Play cover


Newly broke girl Alexandria Asher just wants to live a normal life. After her parents are sent to prison on embezzlement charges, she enrolls in college under her mother’s maiden name and tries her best to pretend she’s someone else. Tristan Chadwick is everything Alex is trying to avoid. A seemingly egotistical, lazy, rich jerk, she dumps her beer on his head when he comes on to her one night at a party. This only spurs Tristan into action. He loves nothing more than a challenge. And the beautiful Alex is exactly the type of challenge that intrigues him.

Despite her reluctance, Alex finds herself quickly involved with Tristan. Underneath that playboy exterior is a good guy, a sweet and sexy guy who she is undoubtedly falling for. What they both don’t realize is the actions of Alex’s parents are the reason for so much tragedy in Tristan’s family. And when Tristan discovers who Alex and her family really is, can he forgive and forget?

Whitney’s Four Star Review

I’ve had a thing for Tristan since starting this series.  His attitude problem made me want to smack him a few times and you know what they say… the badder they are, the harder they fall.  So I couldn’t wait to see the lady who would bring Tristan to his knees.

Alexandria is immediately likeable.  A former rich girl trying to maintain a low profile because of her parents illegal business dealings, she wants nothing to do with Tristan.  It’s fun watching her give him hell.

Unfortunately, she can’t deny her attraction to him.  Especially when he makes it clear he wants her.  The build up to their relationship worked well for me.  I felt the tension and the chemistry.  It doesn’t take a genius to figure out Tristan was going to do something to screw it up and he does.  Alexandria’s parents situation don’t help either and the two struggle to make a relationship a reality.

This has been a fun and sexy series, albeit predictable.  Monica has created a fun NA series with a cast of sexy men and fun ladies.  If you’re needing something light to read, this is a great series to pick up.  It’s been hard deciding which guy I liked the most but Tristan, I believe, has earned the top spot!
