She’s playing a dangerous game…
She’s following her heart. He’s looking for redemption.
Can they beat a bad rap and slide home safe?
Chloe Barlow has always wanted to give back. But when she volunteers at the local soup kitchen, her good deed is repaid with a violent attack. The biggest surprise comes when Armitage’s resident bad boy saves Chloe and leaves a sweet note in her locker the following day. Could Chloe’s classmates have been wrong about him the whole time?
Vincent Mancini hasn’t cared about his reputation in years. At least, not until Chloe looked in his direction. With his older brother in jail and a rocky home life, it was always easy to accept the troublemaker label. But it turns out Vincent’s brother may be innocent and with Chloe agreeing to a date, things are looking up for the troublemaker…
Chloe is determined to prove her classmates wrong about Vincent by clearing his brother’s name. But as their investigation takes a dangerous turn, Chloe could end up with something much more serious than a broken heart…
Foul Play is the final standalone book in the Barlow Sisters Trilogy, a series of simmering YA contemporary romance novels. If you like forbidden love stories, complex characters, and high-adrenaline mysteries, then you’ll love Jordan Ford’s sports romance series.
The extraordinarily talented Jordan Ford (Melissa Pearl) never ceases to amaze me and I find myself falling more and more in love with her writing after each new release. Foul Play is Chloe’s story and I think that right from the beginning her’s has been my most anticipated read of the trilogy. Let me just say that she certainly did not disappoint this ultimate fangirl (seriously I’ve been stalking this girl since I read Betwixt, now The Space Between Heartbeats by Melissa Pearl back in 2012)!
After that epic ending in Strike Out I couldn’t wait to dive into Chloe’s story, but of course life got in the way and I didn’t have a chance to read it until now… This story was filled with suspense and mystery ← both of which that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very end! Chloe & Vincent’s have that whole forbidden love/Romeo & Juliet vibe to it, which I absolutely LOVE. I seriously couldn’t get enough of these two.
Vincent is so misunderstood and is feared by most of his peers because of his last name. Luckily the sweet and kindhearted Chloe knows how to look beyond the rumors and accept him for who is really is! This story shows you that you should never judge a book by it’s cover…or in this case by your last name. Mancini may be a feared name in Armitage, but no need to worry when it’s attached to Vincent Mancini because this young man has a kind heart.
Gosh…there is so much I want to say about this book, but I don’t know how to do that without giving away the entire plot…so I will just leave this with you – GO AND READ THIS STORY NOW!!! Trust me you will NOT regret giving it a chance!
