Summary: (from goodreads) Ryan Hunter's parties are legend. And tonight she's going to be there.

Liza Matthews anticipates the return of her best friend and only love since kindergarten from soccer camp. But when Tony finally shows up, his mind is more focused on another girl. And worse, she's a soccer player. Fighting for the attention Liza craves, she's just a hairbreadth away from making a very stupid decision. But when extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures, she's prepared to play ball to get her man.

The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possible—in the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school. Ryan Hunter.

First off I want to say that I absolutely loved this novella. It was an easy read and I never felt bored at all. It made me feel like a teenager all over again. Piper did a wonderful job and I look forward to reading more of her works.

The story starts off with Liza awaiting her best friend to come home from soccer camp. She is very much in love with her best friend, Tony. They are neighbors and have been inseparable since kindergarten. Liza even fantasizes about her name with his last name. So cute!! He finally gets home but Liza soon finds out he is interested in another girl. She ends up joining the soccer team to spend more time with Tony since the captain of the team is taking away her valuable time with her best friend. It started off great, she made the team! But why? She has never played soccer before; she always was on the sidelines watching, Tony. All the sudden Liza was asked to go to Ryan Hunter’s house, he threw the biggest parties but they were always invite only parties and frankly Liza never was invited. Tony ended up taking her to the party only to leave her to fend for herself while he was off with Chloe, the new girl. Liza finds herself being perused if you will by Ryan and ends up waking the next morning next to him in his bed. Whew, I literally loved this moment! The fact that Liza started to have a liking to Ryan made Tony quite jealous, and the fact that Tony was Liza’s best friend made Ryan quite jealous as well. Who will Liza end up with?

In all, this novella was amazing and I am looking forward to reading more like it. Like I said before it was an easy read, very cute. I would say it’s more for the older young adult crowd only because of the sexual innuendos. It definitely made me feel whatever Liza was feeling whether it is embarrassed or shy, I really love when a book can give you the chills or make you blush. I was on the edge of my seat with anticipation to what was going to happen next and couldn’t stop reading. The ups and downs of this story were spectacular.
