Players gotta play.
Hate is like a poison. It contaminates everything.
So does doubt.
Even though I deny what I overheard, even though I insist it isn’t true, the seed of doubt has been planted. I can’t help but be tormented with the endless what-if’s that have taken over our lives.
Romeo and I were happy in love. The future stretched before us brighter than any star in the darkest sky. Now everything is broken. Literally broken. Romeo’s entire career is at stake, my entire future is threatened… and my past?
It’s coming back to haunt me.
To haunt us.
Romeo says we’re in this together and right now the only sure thing is us. But how far can a love so new be pushed? The lengths we will have to go to save each other puts everything at risk.
Romeo is a #player but how much of the game can one person play?

I received a copy of this story for an honest review.
#Player picks up right where #Hater left off, with Rimmel and Romeo recovering from Zach's violent attack and waiting to find out the impact on Romeo's football future. Its hard to say much more without giving away any spoilers but I will say that author Cambria Hebert kicks things off with a ton of emotion and the story rockets to a stellar resolution.
What I Loved: Once I jumped into #Player I could not stop reading until I reached the very last page. Then I found myself reading the story again the next day and again the day after that. Author Cambria Hebert has created something special with the Hashtag Series and her conclusion to Romeo and Rimmel's love story knocks it out of the park. There's drama, action, angst, humor, heat, and the promise of a brilliant future for her leads. Romeo and Rimmel have grown so much over three books, the conclusion was everything I could hope for them.
What I Didn't Love: #Player is a five star read for me so there really isn't anything that I didn't love. The only thing that would have added to the story for me is a little more insight into the resolution of Rimmel's academic woes. But that's a small reader want, not a real storyline need.
"Don't forget this moment. Don't forget the absolute truth in the way you feel right now. I love you and I'm not going to stop."
"I was her soft place to fall. I was her strength in that moment. I was her comfort."
"His mouth was like a giant eraser to my chalkboard. Everything inside me was wiped blank, and all that remained was his mouth."
"I don't think we'll ever be normal. But I guarantee we're going to be happy."
"I don't know how I got so lucky, I don't know how I found a love so pure. But I was going to spend the rest of my life thanking God every day."
The Hashtag Series has been such a joy for me as a reader and a blogger. I've consumed Romeo and Rimmel's story again and again and every time I jump back in I'm just as captivated and excited to read it as I was the very first read. #Player is a wonderful finale and I highly recommend it. #Player should not be read as a standalone and if you haven't already jumped into the Hashtag Series you will need to read #Nerd and #Hater first.
Though Romeo and Rimmel's love story has been wrapped up in a neat little bow I'm happy to report #Player won't be the last time we see the pair. Both will be making an appearance in #Selfie, which will focus on Braeden, Romeo's best friend and Rimmel's self-appointed Big Brother for Life. I for one can't wait.
