Product Description

Product Description

Newly broke girl Alexandria Asher just wants to live a normal life. After her parents are sent to prison on embezzlement charges, she enrolls in college under her mother’s maiden name and tries her best to pretend she’s someone else.

Tristan Prescott is everything Alex is trying to avoid. A seemingly egotistical, lazy, rich jerk, she dumps her beer on his head when he comes on to her one night at a party. This only spurs Tristan into action. He loves nothing more than a challenge. And the beautiful Alex is exactly the type of challenge that intrigues him.

Despite her reluctance, Alex finds herself quickly involved with Tristan. Underneath that playboy exterior is a good guy, a sweet and sexy guy who she is undoubtedly falling for. What they both don’t realize is the actions of Alex’s parents are the reason for so much tragedy in Tristan’s family. And when Tristan discovers who Alex and her family really is, can he forgive and forget?

I was just so excited to read another most amazing book to this fabulous series, The Rules. The third story, Slow Play brings us the most truly romantic story about Tristan and Alex. I loved this astounding story both bringing two opposites together. I could not put this book down.

We meet Alexandria Asher out one night. She was on the dance floor just trying to forget all her troubles. She was happier now after she'd now met Jade and her boyfriend Shep. They then also meet his best friend Gabe who now dates Lucy.

When she eventually meets Shep's cousin, the one and only Tristan Prescott, she is just so turned off. His crass rude language just makes her want to get far away from him too, yet Tristan just couldn't keep his eyes off her that night. He was is love.

Such the most amazing romantic story. How two complete opposites can come together. I was so completely thrilled by this beautiful love story. Well done once again Monica Murphy. I thoroughly adored this most bittersweet story! It was the best!

* I recommend this book to everyone!

This is my favourite of the series. Tristan is a little annoying and complicated and some times i just want to slap him in the face but he loves fiercely and in the end i loved him too. Alex is strong and holds her cards close to her chest, she too at times is annoying but she is a worthy heroine in the story and a perfect match for Tristan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Forgiveness and Redemption 15 October 2015
By Mauaqui - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Tristan is the most heartless womanizer on campus. He gets away with his actions because he is so good looking and such a sweet talker. Woman flock to him and he is a spoiled Romeo until Alexandria.
Alexandria used to be a spoiled rich girl, until her parents were caught embezzling and their house of cards fell all around them when they were caught. Alex was a victim in this devastation. She was left only with a trust fund for her education and the clothes in her closet. She moved away and started college and a new life. She sells her former life's clothes and accessories in a consignment store to pay for rent and food and lives a quiet life until Tristan. The first meeting was explosive and a silent battle begins between the two. The sexual attraction is there but Alex needs more and Tristan needs less or so he thinks. Good story and entertaining read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised by how much I liked. 8 November 2015
By Ramblings From This Chick Blog - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. Going in I wasn't completely sure if I would like it or not. I loved the first book in the series but wasn't a fan of the second so I went into this one not knowing if I would like it or not. I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There is just something about a cocky manwhore that I simply can't resist and Tristan definitely fit the bill. He was cocky, kind of an ass and definitely a manwhore but I absolutely adored him. Yes, he's rough around the edges but when we finally see beneath his cocky exterior he was a sweetheart. I loved him and Alexandria together.

I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from Monica Murphy in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally Tristans Story!!! 4 November 2015
By chrissycf - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Finally we get Tristan's story! I've been wanting to get to know this man since book one, and was so excited to finally read his story and meet the girl that takes him out of his playboy lifestyle.

When Alexandria first meets Tristan she's attracted to him, but then he goes and opens his big mouth and things go down hill from there. These two do not get along and always seem to be annoyed and irritated with one another, but the attraction is undeniable. Seeing Tristan give Gabe and Shep so much crap for falling in love, it was hilarious to see him fight it tooth and nail when it came to Alexandria.

Alexandria has a past, one she's not proud of, and she's trying to move on from the things her parents did. When she meets Kelli and in turn Jade, Lucy, Shep, and Gabe she finally feels as if she belongs. She keeps her past a secret, but moves on and learns to enjoy her life. Being friends with who she's friends with makes it extremely difficult to ignore Tristan. She wants something more than what Tristan is known for, and isn't about to play his games. She knows he's dangerous for her heart and decides to take the safer route. When things heat up between these two, it is definitely HOT and I adored seeing them navigate through their non "relationship" of just being "friends".

Everyone around them could see how they felt about one another, but Tristan fought his feelings tooth and nail, and Alexandria was afraid to speak up and tell him how she felt. I wish Tristan wouldn't have been so afraid of how he felt about Alexandria. He was so different with her, and became a better person. Tristan was still the foul mouthed man, but no longer the playboy we've come to know. He had eyes for only one girl, and didn't see that even though he didn't want it, he was in a relationship.

When things come to a head in this book I wanted to scream at Tristan. He lashed out and I was surprised that Alexandria didn't slap him. I really didn't think that these two would be able to move past the words that were said and the secrets that had come out, but to say I loved how things ended for them would be an understatement. I really adored this book along with this series. Tristan went from the one that I wasn't so sure of to my favorite of the three men in this series. I just wish we would have gotten more of an ending/epilogue for how all of these characters ended up in the long term. Hopefully one day we can get an extended ending for this series, as I have fallen in love with all of these characters. If you're looking for a New Adult romance that will have you laughing out loud, and is full of angst, I highly suggest picking up Slow Play today, and all of The Rules series if you haven't read them yet!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this whole series 22 October 2015
By Tatia White - Published on
I remember seeing a picture that Ms. Murphy posted on Instagram saying how excited she was about the release of Slow Play, about how Tristan's story was her favorite in the series. I thought to myself that it would have to be some story to beat Shep in my book. He's always been my favorite. Well, Ms. Murphy, guess who's story is now my #1?
Man-whoring, a$$hole, black-hearted, stuck-in-his-ways Tristan. He's has selfish as they come. He uses women for one thing - his pleasure. He's never worried about what they wanted, if they got off, or if they had a preference. Get in, get off, get out. That's him, until one Halloween party when an angel dressed in white took over his every thought. Now Tristan's fighting feelings he didn't think he'd ever have to deal with.
Alexandria was just looking for a new life, away from everyone and everything that was ever involved in her past. She's focused on her and rebuilding a life where she's actually happy. The last thing she wants is the attention of the biggest player on campus. Unfortunately, that's what she has. With her new friends in tow, surely she can thwart his advantages and he'll eventually give up, right?
I loved everything, EVERYTHING, about this story. Tristan and the fight he put up. Alexandria and her will to not give in. That's the funny thing about love though. It usually knocks you over when you least expect it, and you fall hard. I couldn't stop thinking about it. Heck, I dreamed about it. I went to sleep thinking that I couldn't wait to wake up, get the oldest off to school, come back home and pick up reading again. I had to know what happened. I knew the big plot twister was coming. I knew secrets would be revealed, the past would catch up, and it would test everything Tristan and Alex had built. And it did. I didn't know if there was enough time in the story to salvage all that had went wrong. I was worried. Have no fear, though. We get the ending I did not see coming. Sexy, stubborn Tristan surprises us all.

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 Slow & Sensual, Sizzling, Sultry, Stars! 15 October 2015
By Lindy@ A Bookish Escape - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
My Thoughts:

I have really enjoyed The Rules series. I've loved all of these main characters, and watching their journey to finding true love. Shep, Gabe, and Tristan, were all sexy leading men, and I loved watching their transformations from manwhore to man in love, when they met their soul mates, Jade, Lucy, and Alex.

Tristan Prescott is the ultimate bad boy. He never sleeps with the same woman twice, is arrogant, has the worst pick-up lines, and is use to getting whatever and whoever he wants; with absolutely no effort on his part. That all changes, when he meets the beautiful, closed off, and confident, Alexandria "Alex" Asher. When Tristan see's her, he is determined to have her for the night. However, Alex, has no problems with turning down this bad boy, and the more she continues to resist him, the more he wants her.

Pretty soon Alex and Tristan are circling around each other. Flirting, and fighting, these two take two steps forward and one step back. Tristan isn't fond of labels, but Alex wants to know that he is serious about her. Another conundrum, is the fact that Alex hasn't shared her shameful family skeletons. Unfortunately, there is a connection there that neither Alex or Tristan are aware of.

From the moment I met Alex, I adored her. She was strong, independent, down to earth, and an all around good person. She knew how to put Tristan in his place, and demand the respect that she deserved. Alex was a very special lady, and the only one that had the ability to being out the best in Tristan.

Initially, Tristan was hard for me to warm up to. His arrogance, the way he spoke, and thought about women, made me angry. He was the poster child of a "bad boy." However, realistically, and little by little, he transformed. We got to see a new side of Tristan. Alex brought out a more caring, romantic, and sweet side in him, which had me swooning. The ending of Slow Play was perfect! I was left with a smile on my face, and pure joy for Tristan and Alex.

My Rating:

I give, Slow Play, by Monica Murphy, 4 Slow & Sensual, Sizzling, Sultry, Stars! By the way, there are a lot of references to the television show, Sex in the City. This is one of my favorite shows of all time, and I loved how Ms. Murphy incorporated it in to the story! Slow Play was another great story by one of my favorite authors, and I recommend The Rules series to fans of New Adult Romance.
