Ask Meg, and she’ll say she’s content. A promising career, a steady boyfriend—her future is secure. Just like her position on Brentley Women’s Rugby Team.

Her fascination with Jacqueline, the team’s wild and beautiful flanker—that’s nothing more than infatuation. When Jacqueline unexpectedly corners her and kisses her breathless, Meg is blindsided.

Forced to admit her secure future isn't nearly as appealing as it had seemed, Meg realises she has two options: keep playing it safe or change the game.

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Lately, I have really broadened my horizons in the romance genre, branching out to books that I haven’t read much of or in some cases, not at all. F/F romances are few and far in between – from what I have seen, anyway – and it’s one sub-genre in romance I would like to see more of in the future.

The Playmaker, was quite enjoyable. Sitting at only 140(ish) pages, I enjoyed the level of depth that Swift was able to put into Meg. The course of the book is over the span of a few months – so there is that small part of me that feels like had it been longer, the reader could take more away from Meg’s decisions and her love for Jacqueline.

Meg is what I would have initially called a SETTLER. She is content, but longs for more in her life; realizing after spending years with her current boyfriend that their relationship isn’t what she wanted after all. I had a small issue with the way she handled the situation – however, it could have been worse.

While I got a good read on Meg – her fears, hesitations, and longing for more – but I never got a good read on Jacqueline. I liked them together – but again, I do feel like I would have enjoyed them more, with more depth to Jacqueline and/or a longer story.

Overall though, I did enjoy their story. It’s sweet, fun and one I recommend.
