Gavin Young wants to be governor of California, and he wants it so badly that he’s willing to do anything to win. Estlyn’s job is pretty straightforward: make Young look like the better candidate. But to do that, she’ll have to frame an acquitted man for a gruesome double homicide. Young will present himself as the tough-on-crime candidate, righting society’s wrong… and then Estlyn’s family will be free. But first, she has to produce two dead bodies and a felon's prints on the murder weapon. It’s a conscience-wrenching assignment. To make matters worse, she’ll have to reach out to a contact from her past—one she hoped she’d never have to see again.
IF SHE PLAYS HIS GAME is the second book in the engaging New Adult series AFTER TWELVE by author Laney Wylde. Perfect for fans of THE HATE YOU GIVE by Angie Thomas, and television shows like REVENGE, SCANDAL, and VERONICA MARS, the AFTER TWELVE Series is a gritty social-issue drama that delivers steamy romance, intrigue, and the most bittersweet revenge plots. Estlyn's determination to right every wrong is sure to quench your thirst for justice, yet leave you wanting more.
About the author
Laney Wylde is enamored with all things southern California––the traffic, smog, surprise earthquakes, and nonindigenous palm trees. Consequently, it’s the landscape her strong and sometimes lovable female leads paint their stories on. Her New Adult novels Never Touched and the After Twelve series are bright with provocative themes, steamy romance, and inappropriately timed humor.
When Laney isn’t writing, she’s singing Taylor Swift with her little boy or asking her husband not to tell her about his work as a surgical resident while she’s eating. She daydreams about using her math degree to get into law school, then realizes that would be too much work and that she should just play pretend court on paper instead. While she loves a good book, nothing beats 30 Rock with a bag of popcorn and M&Ms.
