Book Review: Matchplay by Dakota Madison


Kindle Edition

Published March 17th 2013
Short on Time Books 
A Girl, a Guy, a Tournament and a Challenge

The Girl: At a time when most girls obsess about homecoming and high school prom, Rainy Dey spent her senior year caring for her dying mother. So when her father drops her off at college to start her freshman year, his words of advice to his bookish daughter are to start acting like a young person and finally have some fun.

The Guy: College senior, Aaron Donavan, aka Mr. Hot-and-Knows-It, is President of the Clubhouse, a social club for the college’s most wealthy and popular guys. Aaron can have any girl on campus except the one who challenges and excites him the most—Rainy Dey.

The Tournament: Every year, the senior members of The Clubhouse engage in a golf-inspired tournament to see who can sleep with the most freshman girls. When Rainy finds out about the tournament, she believes Aaron’s only interest in her is to score points by taking her V-Card.

The Challenge: Can Aaron convince Rainy that his feelings for her are true and that she won’t be just another notch on his tournament scorecard?

This NEW ADULT ROMANCE contains language and content indented for adult readers (18+).


I don't know how I feel about this book. Normally I have one definite emotion for it but this one was just... I don't know. The beginning started off pretty good. Rainy Dey is all innocent and sweet. She is a freshman in college and upon her dad dropping her off she meets the glorious Evan and Aaron. Of course they are smoking hot so you can just imagine that she isn't exactly trying to run from them. Her roommate Olivia and her brother Lucas step in and take her under their wings.Rainy tries to stand her grown and keep Aaron at arms length but when they are put together to work on a project, Rainy can't help the way she feels for Aaron.
Lucas is a super geek but crazy sweet. He is interested in Rainy but how can he compete with sexy Aaron. Even though he knows he doesn't have a change with her, he is still there to come to the rescue whenever Rainy needs him.
Aaron can't help falling for Rainy. She's different from any girl he's met before and is willing to change his ways for her. Being the president of The Clubhouse puts some strain on their relationship. Not only does she have to worry about what other will think of her and the talk of her loosing her V card but Evan and some of Aaron's friends make Rainy question herself. 
Here is where things go downhill. Aaron is completely open with their relationship. The minute his family and old friends come into the picture, he changes. He is so set on having her claim him to the world but he can't seem to do the same. The whole last quarter of the book just pisses me off. I really didn't like the ending even if it did end with an "aww" factor. 

How do you guys feel about this book?
