Meet the Author

The quick-and-dirty: I’m a girl with a passion for writing. The genres you’ll find me hanging out at are contemporary and fantasy YA, all of them romances…of course. The nitty-gritty: I’m an Austrian lass—totally uncomplicated and up to anything fun. I grew up in Vienna, not by free will but because my parents decided to move there when I was only 4 years old. I. Hated. The. City. Everything about it. So right after graduation I moved back to Upper Austria, where I settled down with a nice husband and an awesome laptop. I’ve been a storyteller all my life. Already in kindergarten, I came up with the most exotic fantasies and tales. My teacher would call me a liar. I call it the cornerstone of my writing career. People always told me you can’t make a living with being an author. So when my first novella PLAY WITH ME came out and shot straight to the stars within the first week, I was totally dumbstruck. Took me a while to realize what was happening, LOL. And the personal stuff: At the (awesome) age of seventeen, I met the love of my life. But he was a playboy, and I was so not going to be his next trophy. It took him another four years of fighting for me until I finally decided to give that “couple-thing” with him a shot. I’m now married to this man. ;-) We have a twelve-year-old son, and together we travel a lot…although I sometimes wish the trips were shorter because I can’t wait to get back to my computer and my many stories. Unless we’re in Disneyland. No stress to go home then… If you still want to know more about me, my FAQ page is the right address for you. http://annakatmore.com/faq/

These books are both very quick reads.  I read Play With Me first and think that is a good order to read them in. Play With Me tells Liza's side of what happens between her, Tony and Ryan.  Tony has been her best friend forever and she has herself convinced that she is in love with him.  She is just waiting for Tony to realize it.  Unfortunately, he comes back from soccer camp with eyes for another girl.  We get to see all the events from Liza's POV.  She closes her eyes to the fact that Tony might be interested in someone else, so when he point blank tells her, it is quite a shock.  However, since she has been enjoying the attention of Ryan Hunter, it makes you wonder whether or not she was as clueless as she let on.  Things come to a head though when Tony lets it slip in front of her that he "asked" Ryan to spend time with her to "distract" her.  In Ryan Hunter we get to see the same story line from Ryan's POV.  It was fun to see a guy vulnerable and upset over losing out on a girl and misunderstandings that happen.  Normally you only see that from a girl's side.  I liked seeing the story from Ryan's POV after having read Liza's side because then I knew what she was feeling as I learned what he was feeling as well.  Did that make sense?  It is hard to tell you much more without spilling the beans on how the story ends.  If you are worried that you might be bored reading essentially the same story again, don't be.  I found it to be a lot of fun and enjoyed reading all the way to the end.

This book was amazing! I loved hearing the story in Ryan's POV. I just couldn't put it down. I loved how her feelings for her way before the ever started talking and how there love grew stronger. I strongly reccomend this novel but read Play With Me first.

Basically, Ryan Hunter is what happened in Play With Me, but everything is in Hunter's point of view. For some reason, I'm not a big fan of the name Ryan. No offense to Ryan's out there. Maybe it's because I don't think the Ryan's I see are super hot at school...but anyways, Hunter just sounds better. In Ryan Hunter, we learn more about the hero and his story. He doesn't get every girl like everyone thinks and he also isn't the player like everyone thinks.  I'm trying to decided between if I would have liked this storyline better with the two POVs side by side in one book or a separate Ryan Hunter POV like it is now. Since this is super short read, I think it can pass, but if it was a long book, I think having to two separate books of the same story can be a bit repetitive.  Overall Thoughts:  This was an amazing read that I thoroughly enjoyed. Although I didn't super connect and fall in love the characters and really ship Ryan and Lisa, it was a great light read.  The Rating: (1-10): 7~

I really debated on whether or not I should write two reviews, one for each of these books. It kind of made sense for a little bit because they really are separate entities, but I eventually decided that because they were essentially the same general story, it would be more helpful if I just compared them together instead of separately. And in the interest of full disclosure, I want to tell you all that these are both novellas. I mean, they're still pretty long for novellas (around a hundred pages each), but I wouldn't exactly consider them full length novels either. I probably should have been able to figure that out, but apparently I missed that fact before I started reading. Not that I think that there's anything wrong with that; these books were the perfect length for this type of story. It's just that I wasn't expecting it. In general I felt that both of these books were very light, and I really liked that. Yeah, sometimes you may want to read something a little deeper, but not every book needs to make you question the universe with some sort of philosophical mumbo jumbo. Sometimes you just want those short and sweet novels that make you smile and laugh, and you can just leave it at that. Normally, I'm not a huge fan of summery, contemporary romance novels, but this one really worked for me. I thought that it was really funny, and it actually stayed true to how normal teenagers think and act without being cheesy or annoying. Sometimes I'm wary of reading anything from your typical "young adult's" perspective because as a young adult myself, I can personally vouch for the fact that we are capable of thinking past our hormones. As hard as it may be to believe, there is a brain in there somewhere. Gratefully, I actually saw those brains in each (or at least most) of these characters. Yeah, their judgement may have gotten a little clouded at times due to other influences, but that's normal for everybody! And even allowing that, they wouldn't just excuse betrayal or anything along those lines with the excuse, "Oh, but he/she really loves me!" They were actually rational, but believably so. Still, this is a story where the main characters are pretty young. They don't know everything about the world yet (even though they may like to think that they do), and they're going to make mistakes. I feel like above all else, Piper Shelly's greatest accomplishment here was capturing that. While she did allow her characters to actually seem intelligent, they were still as vulnerable and relatively inexperienced as they should be. Now for my comparison of the two. If I had to choose, I would say that I liked Ryan Hunter just a little bit more for a few reasons. First of all, this is the longer one (by about thirty pages) and it made me laugh more often. Secondly, it was sooooooo sweet to read about how much Ryan really cared about Liza. I couldn't care less about his so called "player" reputation; he really did love her, and he wasn't afraid to show it. And honestly, I have to admit that his scheming to get her to like him was pretty fantastic. Taylor

Loved the hot romance without the overly graphic sex. Interesting and emotional. I loved reading the story from both Liza and Ryan's point of view.
