[Review] Theirs To Play ~ Kenya Wright

Two billionaire brothers enjoy twisted games where women are the sport. They find a female, date her, and compete to see who can bed her first. 

Too bad they picked the wrong one this time. Dawn's too smart for their verbal play and too quick to get trapped by clever ploys. 

The more the brothers work to capture her heart, the more they discover she might not be theirs to play.

Aly's Review

Dawn. Oh, Dawn. Swooooon.

Okay, just kidding. But Dawn IS pretty hot. She isn't your conventional storybook heroine with typical cliches. There was no lovesick girl with delusions in this book. Dawn was sure of herself and what she wanted. She didn't fall for the sappy lines or put up with the crap that was given to her.
She was my ideal heroine - one that was long needed in the NA genre.

The best feature in Theirs To Play was the characters. They were well developed and had layers of complexity. They were the type to laugh with and get frustrated with. Kenya Wright has an obvious talent with writing, a strong and clear voice apart from the typical characters.

The love triangle (yes, there were two guys and the possibility of another one in the end. Oops. Spoiler!) was one of the good ones I've read. There's a fine line in books with love triangles, and Ms. Wright balanced herself pretty well.

Of course, no book is unblemished. I read in Goodreads that Wright had impeccable writing style, grammar, spelling, and composition. I decided to watch out for those common errors that authors tend to make. There was the occasion misspelled word (site instead of sight, taut instead of taught, its instead of it's). This was a huge turn off, especially in the steamy scenes. There were around eight of these errors - which aren't all that bad compared to the others I've read.

Despite its flaws, Theirs To Play is a definite must-read. If you're looking for an independent, strong heroine in a love triangle, I strongly suggest you read this book. A definite warning for you though; it has a "cliffy" in the end. Good luck with that, if you're planning to read it.

Always reading,
