Player: What Happens on Campus, Book 1 is a contemporary romance novel written by M.L. Sparrow. After the accident that claimed the life of her brother, Jack, Chloe had indefinitely put off her plans for college and had taken on all the overtime and holiday work she could manage until her parents finally stepped in. They knew her brother would want her to move on with her life, and her grades were good enough to get the scholarship that would enable her to study abroad. That day had finally come. She would be starting as a freshman at St. Joseph's University two years older than most of her classmates, but still Chloe hesitated about leaving her parents until her dad helped her with her final packing. When she finally arrived in South Texas, she was struck by how hot it actually was, and what a nice change it made from the chilly English weather she was accustomed to. She made friends quickly once on campus, starting with her roommate, Riley, an irrepressible party girl and compulsive shopper. But Parker was the person who really stood out for Chloe. He had helped her carry her luggage up the stairs to her dorm room that first day, and even though he had a well-deserved reputation as a player, something about his smooth Alabama drawl and the way he looked at her had her hooked.
M.L. Sparrow's contemporary chick lit novel, Player: What Happens on Campus, Book 1, is an entertaining and sweet story about two injured souls who find each other against all odds. I went from wondering how a young British woman would pick a school in South Texas to study in, to enjoying her reactions to the very different culture she was experiencing almost immediately. Watching as she slowly and carefully progresses from onlooker to participant in school was a treat. Sparrow's story is engaging, and her characters are authentic and believable. Player: What Happens on Campus, Book 1 is highly recommended.
