Shaw Matthews plays to win, and he intends to snag a coveted partnership at San Diego’s hottest sports agency by signing America’s top athlete.

Only one woman stands in his way: rival agent Cassidy Whalen. But eliminating the competition will be Shaw’s pleasure when he concocts an ingenious plan to seduce Cassidy—that is, until Cassidy turns the tables and their steamy encounters break all the rules.

Tantalizing from start to finish, PLAYING DIRTY leaves readers eager for the next book in Parker’s addictive series, Getting Rough.

about the author

C. L. Parker

C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there’s no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.

my review

5 Stars

HOLY HOTNESS!!  A little healthy competition between two sexually charged people makes for an exceptional plot!! I loved every aspect of Playing Dirty.  It was an excellent start to a new series – I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on the other books in this series.

Playing Dirty is Shaw and Cassidy’s love story.  The two have worked together for about a year when they are suddenly competing against one another for the same promotion.  At this point, the book kicks into high gear. Their romance ignites and consumes all the oxygen in the room.  It is sexually charged and intense.  You’re never really sure if Cassidy is going to kick Shaw in the balls or go down on him and vice versa with Shaw towards Cassidy.

What makes it so fun is that both characters are clever and calculating. Almost over the top in their cockiness  and arrogance but it is not annoying. Shaw and Cassidy will to do anything to win, neither one willing to back down. From their jobs, to their friends and with one another, they actually might be the most passionate people I’ve read about in a while. They captivate your attention and you can’t look away.  It’s incredibly entertaining.

Everything about this book drew me in. The characters. The plot. The quick, witted banter.  The erotic sex scenes. The more I read, the harder it became to put the story down. I had to see who won or how the author resolved the couples situation.  So I was completely disappointed when it ended.  I’m ready for more!!!
