The Playmaker Audiobook by Andrew Grey narrated by John Solo


Dreamspinner Presents

Professional football player Hunter Davis is learning that saying he’s gay is very different from actively being in a relationship with another man—especially in the eyes of his teammates and fans. So when Hunter needs a personal assistant to keep him organized, he asks for a woman in order to prevent tongues from wagging.

Montgomery Willis badly needs to find work before he loses everything. There’s just one position at the agency where he applies, but the problem is, he’s not a woman. And he knows nothing about football. Still, Hunter gives him a chance, but only because Monty’s desperate.

Monty soon proves his worth by saving Hunter’s bacon on an important promotional shoot, and Hunter realizes he might have someone special working for him—in more ways than one. Monty’s feelings come to the surface during an outing in the park when Hunter decides to teach Monty a bit about the game, and pictures surface of them in some questionable positions. Hunter is reminded that knowing he’s gay and seeing evidence in the papers are two very different for the other players, and he might have to choose between two loves: football and Monty.


(Book reviewed here previously.)

This is a story for people looking for a nice getaway. It’s light, low on angst, has a few hot smexy times, and is lovely in the way that Andrew Grey books always are.

I loved that Monty is the one in charge of everything and everybody! He has all the answers and everyone underestimates him – but only once! The team is so supportive of him and helps even Hunter to do the right thing in regards to their relationship. He added some nice humor to this story.

Hunter is a bit less likable but he meshes well with Monty. Sometimes their relationship arc is a bit predictable, but that can be comforting at times, too. I didn’t understand fully why Hunter and Monty broke up near the end, but I was glad it was a relatively short break.


4 of 5 stars


John Solo does a really nice job with this. He attempts to give all the various secondary characters unique voices and I really appreciated how he did the female voices as well. He has an easy voice to listen to and the sound quality was excellent. This was a light hearted book and his tone really represented that.
