Publisher's Summary

Deadly consequences ensue when an eccentric millionaire, crippled in a tragic accident, hires a fallen football hero (and ex-con) to impregnate his wife.

Griff Burkett was a school-of-hard-knocks kid, abandoned by his mother, adopted by his high-school football coach. Under his tutelage, Griff earned a scholarship to play college ball and then a multimillion-dollar contract with the Dallas Cowboys. Griff had a good heart, but his Achilles heel was his arrogance, and his gambling. At the end of his career, deep in debt, a local organized-crime kingpin offers him a chance to resolve his loans by throwing a game. Griff agrees, and walks straight into an FBI sting.

After serving time, Griff finds only closed doors. Then he is summoned to the mansion of eccentric millionaire airline owner Foster Speakman. Speakman, a recluse since a car accident left him crippled, is impotent. He offers Griff half a million dollars to impregnate his wife Laura, discreetly, and with manifold rules. One of which is, if Griff succeeds, he will leave town and never see his child as long as he lives.

Griff has few options. He's still hounded by Detective Stanley Rodarte, who organized the gambling sting, and seems set upon ruining Griff's life. Griff has little means of earning a living, no family, and few friends. So he agrees - only to quickly realize he's been set up.

    "Average story, but not overwhelming"
    Would you try another book from Sandra Brown and/or Victor Slezak?

    Definitely yes. I am a big fan of S.B., but this book just was not a favorite of mine..


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I just did not feel much for any of the characters.... Maybe the characters needed to be built up more.... Even the romance was just well... There.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Do you think Play Dirty needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No I just really would not be that interested

    "Good Read"

    I enjoyed this book as I always do enjoy most Sandra Brown's books. There's always some romance wrapped up in a good story filled with suspense. And that's what really keeps me coming back to her books. I don't just want to read a romance story. I like suspense and thrillers and when there's a good romance involved, oh well you've got me. I just want to read all of her books...and I will.

    Story
    "Money can buy anything. Not one of her best"

    Four stars due to Mr. Slezak's performance. He did the best that he could with weak material. Of course this is fiction. The premises of this story is so silly and unbelievable. It is very difficult to like any of the main characters or feel sorry for them. They are protrayed as selfish rich people who will do anything to get what they want. It is difficult to believe that a former professional athlete would be so financially destitute, conceited, and lazy that he would perform stud services for a couple of millionaires. He does this not only for the money, but actually believes that the couple wants his genetic features in their child! Give me a break. In addition, it is incredulous that a self respecting, competent, highly intelligent business woman would be motivated by guilt to have sexual intercourse with a strange man, with her husband's permission, in order to make a baby. What man who truly loves his wife would ask her to do this for him? Adding to the ridiculous plot is mental illness, a dirty cop and the mob. There is no doubt that some listeners were disturbed by the sex scenes. References to "the act" are minimal and not graphic. Actually, this entire story is disturbing and insulting. Save your money and your credits.

    I have a very fast paced life. Audio books are an awesome alternative for me. Long road trips, working out and housework arn't a bore.

    Story
    "Another captivating book by Sandra Brown."

    One thing I have learned is that the reviews are unreliable. Those that call this book predictable certainly must have a very developed imagination. I had no idea where this story was going to end up.

    I couldn't stop listening.

    I am also glad to see Ms. Brown has written so many books. I have a lot of reading in front of me.

    I love her writing style. Bravo Ms Brown, bravo!

    "Thought Provoking"

    I will never look at the Dallas Cowboys and Texas the same way again! This was a very good story. In the Brown fashion, a societal malfunction is overcome with a conscientious choice to make good. I highly recommend this book!

    "Great Story"

    As always Sandra Brown pulls you into an amazing story, but this time, you wonder "How does she come up with this stuff?" This is a great story and the only reason I did not give it five stars is b/c I was a little disappointed in the ending. Only because I was hoping we could have saw a little more into the future of our characters. But this was a great storyline that you just don't see coming. Another great exciting story from Ms. Brown!
