Making a Play by Abbi Glines - NO

Making a Play (Field Party, #5) by Abbi Glines, 313 pages.  Simon Pulse, 2019. $19.  

Content: Language: R (105+ swears; 55 “f”); Mature Content: PG-13; Violence: PG.  



Ryker is a player and has never settled down with any one girl, until he spots the new girl, Aurora.  Aurora is nervous about being the new girl, but her twin brother, Hunter, has been going to Lawton High so she knows he will help her.  Aurora is deaf, but she knows how to navigate in the hearing world, so when Hunter tries to help Aurora and keep Ryker away, Aurora is frustrated.  Against racism, disabilities and other’s criticism, Aurora and Ryker try to make a relationship work.  

The Field Party series is a group of guys who are all on the same football team, so in order to understand the other side stories going on in this book, you have to read the other books.  Ryker’s insta-love for Aurora is cheesy and he waxes poetic about her often which is boring.  There isn’t much of a story, it’s all about their deep love for each other which nobody can possibly understand-gag.  The make out sessions are descriptive and not romantic at all, mostly yuck.
