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 and show the beautiful ballbreaker who’s the better man for the job. That is, until Cassidy turns the tables—and their steamy encounters start breaking all the rules.

Cassidy has worked hard to make it in a man’s cutthroat arena, and she isn’t going down without a fight, not even against the six-two alpha hunk whose rock-hard body awakens desires she’s never known before. As Cassidy shares night after night of unending passion with Shaw, the game begins to change. Now Cassidy stands to lose everything—unless a fiery contest of wills can become a winning proposition for two people who keep raising the stakes.

Playing Dirty is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences. 

~My Thoughts~

This book for me was back and forth. Sometimes I was into it and it was going good but then Cassidy or Shaw would do something that was just unrealistic at times and make the whole thing seem not so believable. It seemed forced at times. However, it was still good. One of my favorite things about this book is how it shoves assuming something right back n each of the characters faces. Cassidy and Shaw are both strong willed people and neither of them refuge to budge. I get their emotions of hating. I get the pent up sexual frustrations. Just not all their actions and not all their words are always believable. I rolled my eyes at times but at others I was like yeah that’s right. It kept me interested enough to see the book through.

That ending …. are you kidding me? Now I absolutely have to read the next one because how can you end it like that and expect me not to have to have the next book.

Another part of what I loved about the book was the other characters. Cassidy’s and Shaw’s group of friends. It definitely added more to the story.

I really don’t know what else to say other then it was good. It definitely left off on such a cliffhanger I WILL be reading the next book cause I have to know what happens! Read it you will see you will be left needing the second one too. Happy readings!
