Rosalyn "Rose" Trevor thought she had it all with her boyfriend, Asher Blaze. They were the perfect image of a teenage dream. Rose knew very well of Asher's past as a player, but, like every other foolish, naive young teenage girl in love, she believed he had changed, for the better. That is, she believed that until she realized that Asher had been cheating on her with Farrah Trevor, her (ex) favorite cousin, for about six months that day. She realized that he was just a candy-coated jerk-once the top was licked off, you may just find that the core is much sourer than expected. Because of this, instead of swearing off men, Rose does the opposite-she goes on a heartbreaking rampage. She gets a whole new, irresistible look, spending the rest of her junior year, summer, and the beginning of her senior year going from school to school locating the player of a school, making him fall, breaking his heart, and moving on to the next school. Michael Grant had never been the player-type. He had always yearned for something real, and he was sure he had found it with Clarissa Jameson. But what they had had all been a lie-Clarissa and her best friend had both gone out and tested how fast they could make a guy fall for them. Michael had merely been a test run for Clarissa. Michael switches schools and makes a new reputation for himself-a Heartbreaker. The girls all know what they're up against once he targets them, yet they all go through with it, anyways, in hopes that they will be the one to make him fall in love. Rose comes to this school and quickly deduces who the player is. What she doesn't know is that he is determined to play the game. And what he doesn't know is that two can play that game.
