Audio Review: Hating the Player by Rebecca Janshak


Hating the Player (Campus Wallflowers #2)Hating the Player by Rebecca Jenshak
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

4.5 stars
I read a novel by author Rebecca Jenshak last year and really enjoyed it, so I jumped at the chance to listen to an early copy of Hating the Player. Although it reads OK as a standalone, main characters Gavin and Violet's first try at a relationship must have happened in the first book of the Campus Wallflowers series. At the start of this book, they are definitely NOT in a relationship and Violet does not like Gavin at all and is quite disappointed that he is joining their friend group on a camping trip. The forced proximity was so good (one tent!) and I loved seeing Violet's distaste for swoony Gavin melt little by little. There is a super fun fashion design storyline and Violet's friends are darling. I really enjoyed Violet and Gavin together- there was a perfect balance of companionship and spice. I will definitely be going back and listening to the first book in the series and looking forward to future Campus Wallflowers books as well. Narrators Tim Paige and Cindy Kay gave fantastic performances. Paige has narrated several books in my audio library and I really like his voice. Cindy Kay was new to me, but I hope to find her in future titles I listen to.
