Review: Playing Dirty by Amy Andrews
Playing Dirty - Amy Andrews

4.25 stars - Reviewed for Wit and Sin

 

The first rule any player for the Sydney Smoke learns is this: Stay away from the coach’s daughter. That’s all well and good for newly-traded hotshot Kyle Leighton. He’s come to be coached by Griffin King and no woman would ever take precedence over rugby. Only when Kyle goes to a bar and has a blazing hot one-night stand with the mysterious Val, he has no idea that she’s the one woman in all of Sydney he’s supposed to stay away from. One mistake like that could jeopardize his career – not to mention Val’s already strained relationship with her father. It’s clear to both Val and Kyle that they should stay away from one another. Except some passions burn too hot to ignore…

Playing Dirty is smoking hot and a whole lot of fun. Where can I put an order in for one of Amy Andrews’s Sydney Smoke players? Ms. Andrews has a gift for penning insanely hot athletes who are seriously sexy, incredibly talented on the pitch and in the bedroom, and yet they’re never full of themselves. In other words, the whole team is made up of perfect book boyfriend material and Kyle Leighton is no exception. Kyle is talented, fun, and has a big heart. He isn’t flawless and it drove me nuts when he made decisions in Val’s interest without talking to her, but when he makes mistakes they’re made with good intentions and a kind heart. Val is a blast to read about and I’ve been looking forward to her story from the very first book in the series. Like Kyle, she’s a funny and kind protagonist and it’s easy to adore her. She and Kyle have a red hot romance that made the pages of Playing Dirty fly by and I was rooting for them every step of the way.

Kyle and Val’s romance shines, but there’s an equally important secondary plot in Playing Dirtythat will just tug on your heartstrings. Val carries a lot of hurt buried not-so-deep beneath the surface and it’s due to her relationship with her father. She desperately wants her father’s love, but there’s so much grief and guilt in their past that Griff can’t see past to give it to her. Kyle, the outsider in this situation, gets involved because he can’t bear to see Val hurting. The result is a messy, emotional journey that’s intertwined with the romance and I loved it.

Playing Dirty is the sixth book in the Sydney Smoke Rugby series but it can easily be read as a standalone. Every book in this series is a great mix of humor, heat, and heart and Kyle and Val’s story is no exception. I adored Playing Dirty and by the time I finished it I was grinning like a loon (it doesn’t hurt that Ms. Andrews’s heroes excel at incredibly fun, over-the-top displays of affection). I can’t wait to see what Ms. Andrews has in store for readers in the next Sydney Smoke book!

Dirty Fake Fiancé - Meghan Kelly,Sky Corgan

 

Lenka lands herself in more hot water than she could have dreamed when she makes a deal with a beautiful stranger. Not only is her heart at risk but his crazy ex quickly marks a target on her back. Dirty Fake Fiance is one plot twist after another. It's crazy. It's sexy, romantic and sweet. It also tempts with a hint of danger and a smidge of heart. With Corgan and Kelly leading the way, we're in for an exciting ride.

Review: “The Flesh Cartel #18: The Long Road (The Flesh Cartel Season 5: Reclamation)” (The Flesh Cartel, #18) by Rachel Haimowitz & Heidi Belleau
The Flesh Cartel #18: The Long Road (The Flesh Cartel Season 5: Reclamation) - Heidi Belleau,Rachel Haimowitz

 

Please note that this is my rating for the entire series!

 

This 19-book novella series felt more like a long book that's been divided into 19 chapters, and it feels kinda weird to rate each chapter of a book individually (and it also couldn't possibly do the whole story justice this way).

 

But if I HAD to rate this instalment on its own, my rating would be:

 

 

~ 4.5 stars ~
