My Rating: 3 Stars
Tropes: Romantic Comedy(ish)
Well Played is the second book in the Well Met series. Each book features a new couple so they can be read in any order. I can say this with certainty because I haven’t had the chance (yet) to read the first one and had no problem following this one.
For the most part, I thought Well Played was a cute story. The plot is unique as it’s a love story that stems from 𝗖𝗔𝗧𝗙𝗜𝗦𝗛𝗜𝗡𝗚 which I haven’t seen much of in romance. However, I did find the story to be a little… dry? I was thinking this would be a romantic comedy and honestly didn’t find it funny in the slightest. It was also extremely slow (to me) and took me forever to read it. Perhaps I just read it at a bad time and would have enjoyed it more had I read it earlier (or later) but for NOW it wasn’t the most exciting thing I’ve picked up.
No matter how slow or humorless I found the novel, I did enjoy Stacey and Daniels 𝗨𝗡𝗖𝗢𝗡𝗩𝗘𝗡𝗧𝗜𝗢𝗡𝗔𝗟 love story. There were a few things about it that rubbed me the wrong way; how easily Stacey forgave him for his lying and how easy it was for Daniel to give up, but they did make a cute pair and watching them fall for one another through texts and emails was really cute. I also love how much of the setting revolves around a Renaissance Faire! I have never read a book like that and I found it absolutely adorable. It’s the little things like this that make a book for me and it certainly highlighted the story.
Overall, this book is getting 𝟯 𝗦𝗧𝗔𝗥𝗦 from me which means it’s a 𝗚𝗢𝗢𝗗 𝗕𝗢𝗢𝗞 but lacks a certain charm to make it completely lovable. I would certainly recommend it to fellow readers and will be taking the time to see how this world started in Well Met as soon as I can. I’ve heard form the grapevine that Well Met is a bit better than this one (no offense) and look forward to reading it!
