Eric Devine gets better and better. His writing is always realistically brutal, and in Press Play the bullying scenes were enough to make me simultaneously tear up and clench a fist. But Devine gripped me more than ever because of the way he forces the reader to empathize with such an imperfect character. Even under the skin, the MC isn’t perfect, but I love that Devine didn’t make Greg a saint.  Greg is like the boy who cried wolf, embellishing his videos to make them more appealing. This bites him in the a** when he catches hazing in the act and knows he has something the world would want to see. It takes growth and a little bit of unexpected friendship for him to figure out how to play his cards. Press Play gives you truth, grit, and entertainment.  Recommend.

PRESS PLAY is yet another installment of Eric Devine's heart-racing, achingly honest works. Deals with weight loss, self image, and hazing, this book grabs hold of you from the first page to the last. You will think you've reached the climax three or four different times throughout the novel. It's real, it's heartbreaking, it's sickening, it's relatable, it's honest, and it's motivational. Nothing short of remarkable.
