Will Montgomery is a successful professional football player and seemingly has it all. He’s not used to being told no, and certainly doesn’t take no for an answer. So when he turns his charms on his sister’s sexy rocker-chick friend Meg, he’s not only turned down, but met with open hostility, piquing his curiosity and libido.
He’s determined to show her that he’s not the arrogant jock she thinks he is, and to get her into his bed. Megan McBride is not impressed with Will Montgomery, his fat contract, fancy car, or his arrogant public persona. She doesn’t have time for a relationship, and if she’s learned anything in life, it’s that loving means losing, so she guards her heart ferociously. But she can’t deny the overwhelming attraction to the sexy, tattooed athlete, and when Will starts breaking down her defenses and grabs hold of her heart, will she be able to admit her feelings for him? Or will her troubled past cause her to lose the first man she’s ever truly loved?
Play With Me is the third book in the With Me In Seattle Series.

I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
We meet Meg McBride briefly towards the end of Fight With Me. She has a brief encounter with Jules & Will where she expresses some serious animosity towards Will. In the beginning of Play With Me you quickly learn why Meg is hostile towards him. Will is one of the four Montgomery brothers who all seem to be made from the sexy gene pool. He is a hot quarterback who can be a famous arrogant butt at times but when push comes to shove, Will is actually sweet and protective. Will is essentially living his dream as a football star. He's worked hard to get where he is and life for him is all about the game. That is, until he meets Megan McBride. Meg takes him by surprise when she instantly rejects him upon their first encounter. I loved Meg as a heroine. She is a woman who loves a sexy car, has a tattoo, used to sing in a rock band. To me, she was so genuine. She is a nurse working at the Seattle Children's Hospital in the cancer ward. She has a difficult job, but she loves it and she works hard. She gave up her career as a singer/musician when her best friend Leo moved to L.A. leaving her behind. Meg has had to overcome a harsh childhood and has dealt with the people who she has loved most in the world abandoning her. She definitely has trust issues not readily opening her heart to anyone. Will challenges her and even though she had a hard time voicing her feelings for him, he was simply too hard to resist. Will pulls out all the stops and this is wonderfully romantic and, as always, gave me the warm and fuzzies and is full of goofy grin loveliness. This story is hopeful, beautiful, compelling and it’s full of humor, passion, compassion and uplifting happiness. It’s paced beautifully allowing time for the relationship to believably develop, giving Meg chance to slowly reveal the reasons behind her doubts & for Will to fully understand how to help her heal. Kristen Proby has once again provided a very romantic tale with little angst and a whole lot of holy hotness. I love the fact that we get to catch up with the other couples from the previous books and get glimpses as to the other characters for future books. I am hooked.

If they like erotica, 100% yes
Will...he's just a big ole' bucket of swoon.
Yes - I've listened to all of the With Me In Seattle series - she does a great job.
There is a scene where one of Meg's patient's dies...very sad.
Great series - cannot recommend them enough if you like erotica.
Will do anything for books!
I like Meg & Will a lot. Will gets serious fast and that is a bit surprising. There is no set conclusion with this one, though it is fine because there are 2 more books they will show up in. Hopefully they will show more there. There is a ton of steamy sex and a bit of stress. I have noticed though that the drama in these books is resolved pretty quickly. I think I like that, these are pretty much feel good books.
I liked the balance between the characters' careers. With him being a football player it helped to balance the story by making her a nurse in pediatric oncology.
This series is good. Romantic with vivid sex scenes. My only complaint is that the stories are repetitive. While the names and occupations change, every male subject has the same personality (overly protective and aggressive) and every female is the same (horrible trust issues and resists the man but eventually gives in). There's no variety but the series isn't unbearable.
I'm totally stuck on this series, and I'm not even trying to listen to anything else these days! I've listened to one after the other and I've been a smitten kitten each time. My only criticism of this particular story was the leading lady--she was such a tough chic, it bordered on being too much because Will was ever the gentleman throughout, and I just wanted her to give in to him. This series is hitting all my buttons. The stories are hot, funny, and just overall good love stories that make you feel good and wish you had one of these hot hunks to keep you warm!
I was swept away into their world, their fresh and new budding relationship, their desires, their hopes and dreams, their pitfalls and the closeness, love and support that their family and friends gave them. I laughed, I cried and I celebrated along with them as I became hopelessly glued to every perfect chapter.
What a brilliant, well-written book that gave me everything I hoped for..... and much much more. This book has it all.... a great storyline, humor, angst, romance, passion, hot sex scenes and a sexy drool-worthy famous leading man who's fallen for a likeable woman who unfortunately comes with some emotional baggage. Great narration finished off an awesome listen.
Worth a credit? Oh YEAH, I love Kristen Proby's books and I'm about to put ALL the others I've missed out on into my cart.... so I guess we'll be living on take-outs for a long long time.
No, I still prefer the print version but the audio version is good.
I love when Will goes to the hospital to visit with the kids.
My favorite things are my family and my books! Depending on the day, not in that order. :)
I really enjoyed this book. I thought that the interaction between the main and sub characters was well written and the book well thought out. The way that the author takes pieces of the previous book and works it into the current one is interesting. You get to see the scene from another perspective.
I loved Will from the last book. He is one of the good guys that has great family values and is looking for someone to share that with. He finds that connection with his sister's friend from college, Meg. Meg's first impression of Will is not a good one. Although it's not his fault that she gets the impression that he's a insensitive jerk, it's his mission to prove to her that he's not.
The book is swoon worthy. The lengths that Will goes to to prove to Meg that he is a wonderful guy are great. I laughed and cried at the end. It was definitely worth it!
"I've read much better contemporary romance"
The story was very average. I've listened to and read much better contemporary romance stories. Some stories have little to no plot but the books are engaging and some have heavy plots which keep me glued to my seat and I end up reading or listening to the story in one go.
Will is cocky and sexy, he sounds like an interesting character.
Some of the dialogue was cheesy and I got fed up of hearing Will saying 'Babe' all the time.
I think Leah Mallach or Saskia Maarleveld would be better narrators. Jennifer Mack made this book sound like a high school story. When she narrates Will's parts, it sounds ridiculous.
Unfortunately it was just not for me. It reads like a steamy high school drama.
Fun, sexy and great
Megan....like how she allow her man to just take care of her after first being afraid.
Play with me
This book kept me very attentive and wanting to listen to the other books.
