Ending

I loved this book but hated the ending lol if you want good reviews maybe you should have all books available to buy otherwise people could lose interest after waiting for a long time. I have memory loss so if the next book takes too long to become available I’ll probs won’t buy it coz I can’t remember what happened in the 1st book and won’t wanna waste my time listening again but hey one persons opinion won’t change anything but please let the others be available soon lol thanks xoxo oh and I love Joe Ardens voice 🥰🥰

AMAZING BOOK AND NARRATION

I loved this book. I listened to this as an audiobook and loved the narration but IT ENDED ON A CLIFFHANGER and the next book isn't an audiobook yet! I am so annoyed because this had an AMAZING ending but one that needs to continue. The romance was really cute how the rebel and the bully came together. There was some heartbreak, as there always is in a good book but overall it was amazing and I hope it continues on with the next book When I Read It (The capitals were intentional). I definitely don't regret reading/listening to this book and would definitely recommend this to those who like this genre. However, if you are a person who can't stand not reading the next book when the first one ends on a cliffhanger, don't get it until the next book is out and possible to read. I loved this book!

Couldn't Stop Listening

I was gifted a copy of the audiobook from the author in exchange for a review.

First off this book has been on my to read list for a while, but with work I don't have much time to read so the audiobook is a huge lifesaver.

This book was amazing and left me itching to pick up the next one. There were times that I laughed, was frustrated, and even wanted to cry in this book which in my opinion makes the best books.

This book is amazing and in audio it's even better

I absolutely love this story and to get to listen to in audio made it that much better! Clint and Rae's story will suck you in from the beginning. I love the character development of getting to know each one in their own POV 's. Clint is the typical good-looking bad boy of the school and he decides he's going to start to harass Rae who is the all around average student who struggles with not being very popular for having nice things due to her home life. These two do not get along at all when the book starts out and constantly are fighting. Until Clint realizes that maybe Rae Isn't So average after all and that's when the story takes a turn from Clint picking on her to Clint wanting her. I don't want to give away too much but honestly this is a great start to a wonderful series and I'm dying to see how it ends I've read the first three books just recently found out there's a fourth book coming out which I can't wait for. Rebel really knows how to write a story that captures you from the beginning and hold you there until the very end I have not read a book by this was a yet that I didn't fully enjoy so if you haven't started this series I would highly recommend doing so you won't regret it!

Disappointing

I normally enjoy high school bully romances but the character development was too fast paced & felt unrealistic how Clint went from hating and bullying Rae to all of a sudden not being able to live without her.
I prefer a slow burn and this just went too quick and his taunting was rude rather than flirty.
The writing was also obnoxious with sentences ending frequently with phrases like “some shit like that”. That exact phrase was used multiple times throughout the book- almost like the author ran out of vocab.
This is a cliff hanger but I’m afraid I won’t be picking up book 2.

A great enemies to lovers story

Play With Me is book 1 in the Diamond In The Rough series. I've just finished listening to the audiobook and it certainly didn't disappoint. I enjoyed it so much, the story was great from start to finish. I especially liked the way the relationship developed between Rae and Clint. It was very intense in parts and ended on a cliffhanger....I would definitely recommend it!

A must read

I’m not very good at writing reviews, but I will say just read/listen to this book, you will be hooked. Clint and Rae’s story has so many emotions attached to it, you feel their pain, their ups and downs and their lust and love for each other, once your hooked on this book there is good news as there are more to follow, you can thank me later!! Enjoy this book Rebel is a great writer 5 stars from me ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
