    Play Your Hand is a short sweet romance fic set just after the Thrawn Trilogy. Romance isn't really my favourite genre yet despite this I find it to be well written and engaging throughout, if a bit clichéd. It's much more of a fluff piece and is a nice length for it. An enjoyable read if nothing else. 4/5

    It's under Fidelius.
    High Score:
    -Pretty good with charactarization.
    -Well written, no unnecessary lengthy fluffs in the middle
    -Plot was meh~ nothing new or groundbreaking
    -I was disappointed with the ending. It felt wayy too rushed. Also, the last action by Mara was completely out of character. She's not one to change her mind on impulse like that. It would have been better if she had left then, followed by a reunion epilogue or something similar.

    4/5 because, well it was a good read despite the ending. There aren't any serious flaws to it other than being a bit bland for those who want action.

    I read this at some point in the last month, and I barely remember it. From what I do recall, the writing was basically fine, and there were a couple of cute moments, but nothing especially interesting. I guess I'd probably rate it at 3/5.
