Play Nice by LP Maxa ~ BLOG TOUR & REVIEW



For Dash Conner, lead singer of The Devil’s Share, everything he wanted was his for the asking. Whiskey. Drugs. Money. Sex. But not Lexi Grant. For the first time since he picked up a guitar, a girl was actually demanding he woo her. For a chance with her, Dash would do that and more.

Lexi Grant was no groupie. Just because the biggest rock star in the world smiled at her didn’t mean she had to fall into bed with him—but it was going to be awfully hard to resist that impish smile and those tatted abs. Surely one night of fun wouldn’t hurt anyone.

Unless that night ends with a broken condom.

For Lexi and Dash, that’s just the beginning. Add an overly affectionate pit bull, a missing guitarist, a house full of sorority girls, a junkie ex-bandmate and an extreme aversion to Jäger, and it’s either a recipe for disaster or true love.

Review By: Amy E

The cover and blurb were what first caught my attention.  They are both eye catching and piqued my interest.  The amazing characters, engaging storyline, and feisty female lead is what kept it.  I read PlayNice straight through one night because I was unable to put it down.

Lexi and Dash are both funny, charismatic, and relatable characters.  They both had me laughing on every other page.  The writing flowed so easily i quickly lost myself in their story.  When you add in a group of well developed and extremely likeable supporting characters the story got even better.  I felt like I was emotionally connect to everyone in the book not just the main characters.

Though their story was told over just a few short months I never felt like it was rushed.  They experienced everything a couple dating for years would which made this book more believable and enjoyable.

Review By: Dawn

I have to say some of my favortie books are rockstar romances. This book i couldnt put down once i stared it.
This book had me right from the start. When Lexi first meets Dash he is on stage while she is visting her best friends brother who happens to be the drumer for his group. The attractions between the 2 of them is something that can be felt through out the book. The way they banter back and forth with each other as well as with the other members of the band had me laughing out loud. I loved that there was thrilling heartbreaking scenes in this book as well as some really sappy love moments.
This Book also had some real life moments that i can image people struggle with in everyday life. That is what made it stand out the most to me. The real lifeness that it protrayed.
If you love quick whit with some drama added in than this is a book that you dont want to miss out on.

Amy elbowed me in the ribs, “Uh, Lex? Dash is staring at you.”

In order to keep myself from ogling him, I’d taken up counting the number of topless women in the crowd. FYI: I got to twenty without even having to search that hard. I looked back in Dash’s direction. Yep, he was staring. I smiled. I couldn’t help it. He smiled back. His smile was one of those panty-dropping megawatt smiles—the kind that makes you feel like you are the only person in the world that could elicit that particular smile, even though you know logically many a girl have been lured in with it.

Dash kept his eyes on mine, but spoke into his microphone. “Uh, guys? There is a sexy brunette standing over here to my right. Does she belong to one of y’all? Please tell me she doesn’t.” He winked at me again. Amy had a death grip on my arm.

Luke stood up and peered over his drums trying to see into the shadows to where we were standing. “Is she standing next to a blonde chick with big blue eyes that’s drooling even though she’s clearly wearing a wedding ring?” The crowd laughed and so did Amy.

Dash chuckled, “As a matter of fact, yes she is.”

Luke nodded and sat back down. “That’s my friend Lexi.”

Dash’s smile grew. “Well isn’t that just the best thing I’ve heard all night. So, Lexi…are you enjoying the show?”

I couldn’t help but laugh at this situation. A rock god was flirting with me over the sound system in a sold-out stadium. I nodded my head yes.

“Good. Can I get you anything? This is officially our first date by the way.”

I bit down on my lip, contemplating how to play this. I could laugh him off and say no…or…I could have the time of my life with a rock star. I tipped my hand back towards my mouth, indicating I wanted a drink.

“Could someone please get my girl a drink?” Dash turned back towards the crowd. “Sorry about that folks but I’ve been staring at her since the show started.” He led into the next song; the crowd sang every word right along with him.

Some guy walked over and handed each of us a beer. Amy turned to me. “Holy shit, Lex. You have to do him. You have to. On behalf of every married woman out there, you have to sleep with Dash Conner.”

“On behalf of every married woman, Ams? Or on behalf of you?” I took a long pull of my beer. Amy married her college sweetheart and even though she was in fact drooling, they were deliriously happy together.

“Come on, Lexi. One night with a sexy rock god. Who turns that down?”

“I do. I’m too old for one night stands, rock god or not.”
