Spotlight and Giveaway: Playing her Secret Crush ~ Casey Griffin


PLAYING HER SECRET CRUSH by Casey Griffin.jpg All her life, Katie has been chosen last for everything: the last picked on the playground, the last picked by her absent father, and definitely the last picked by boys—even her secret crush, Alex, friend-zoned her. This senior year, Katie is determined to come first.

But then Alex asks her to help him find a date?!

Alex has been living life in the fast lane, but he’s ready to slow down—with a girlfriend. The last person on earth he’d consider? The girl his brother developed serious feelings for before he died: Katie. The only way Alex is going to get over Katie is by falling for someone new. And who better to help him find his new crush than the girl he can’t stop thinking about?

What can possibly go wrong?

I won’t lie to you… Thrillers aren’t usually my thing because it’s too close to the Horror genre for me. With that being said, I couldn’t put this book down. This was great storytelling, even when Theresa frustrated you! Let me back up… Theresa is a nurse who is married to a man who is down on his luck and snaps. He brutally attacks her and she’s saved by Ryan, a successful movie star who is barely existing.

Over some time, they do get to know each other, and they are attracted to each other. Ryan finally starts to live again, and Theresa is moving on with her life. The only problem, Theresa’s husband is still out there. Can the two of them finally get a chance to live their best lives? Ryan was a put in a few unfortunate situations that were beyond his control, and Theresa made decisions based on those situations (without having the full information). Her decisions did make sense but as the reader, you are frustrated because you know the full situation. One of the things I loved about this story was usually the female lead would make horrendous decisions and try to justify them. With Saved, Theresa’s decision made sense.

This was a great story from start to finish. I’m happy I was approved for this story, so thank you Curiosity Quills Press!
