When Hanna “Ziggy” Bergstrom moves to New York City for graduate school, Will Sumner thinks his responsibilities to his best friend’s nerdy little sister will be limited to the occasional dinner and check-in. Little does he know that Ziggy is ready to break out of her bookworm academic shell and move more into bombshell territory. Of course she figures the gorgeous womanizing venture capitalist Will is the best person to help mentor her in this new field of study: dating.
Will takes on the challenge with more than a healthy dose of skepticism and humor, but soon finds that Ziggy just needed a tiny push, not a world of change, to reveal a woman every man seems to notice. Soon “Ziggy” is gone and the unfiltered, innocently seductive Hanna Bergstrom is hijacking his dreams, his moods, and even his orderly no-strings-attached dating life—beginning the night his mentoring activities move between the sheets.
5 star review!

I am in love with this entire series and have not been disappointed by any of the books. There is a slight possibility that Beautiful Player was my absolute favourite in the series which is a hard decision to make. Who could possibly beat Bennett Ryan? I think it is time that you met Will Sumner!
I can completely relate to Hanna; she is a very introverted and an independent person. But where she has her experiments, I have my books. NERD LIFE RULES!!!
When her family become concerned with her “loneliness”, they convince her to contact Will who is her brothers best friend. But Hanna has fancied him since she was just 12 years old; this can only lead to enhancing her feelings, right? You sure won’t be disappointed by the chemistry between Hanna and Will. You could toast marshmallows on the pages of this book and I’m surprise that it didn’t go up in flames with all the hot and steaminess!
Will is just.. I don’t even know what to say about him. You can’t help but love him throughout the book because he would change everything that defines who he is at the time to be what Hanna deserves. Obviously like all relationships, they don’t communicate and Hanna just thinks that their relationship is just like Will’s casual flings. Stupid. Stupid. STUPID!
Along the way we get to see the whole gang again with Bennett, Chloe, Max & Sara making regular appearances. I was in tears over the sassy dialogue between the characters; especially Hanna & Will. There’s a whole lot of suspense, excitement and misunderstandings in Beautiful Player that will definitely make fans of the series VERY happy!
I will now sit patiently until I can get my hands on Beautiful Beginning. I’m in need of a wedding as soon as possible!!
