Publisher's summary

Journalist Samantha Jameson always wanted to be one of the boys, but Ryan Terell won't let her join the club. Fresh from the battlegrounds of Iraq, reporting on a bunch of overgrown boys playing pro football is just the change of scenery she needs. If trying to be taken seriously in the world of sports writing wasn't hard enough, Ryan, her college crush, is only making it harder. As a tight-end for the team she's covering, he is strictly off limits.

Ryan Terell is a playmaker on and off the field, but when Samantha uncovers his moves, he throws out the playbook. Just as he claims his sweetest victory, Samantha's investigation into a steroid scandal involving his team forces him to call a time-out to their off the record trysts. But then a life threatening injury on the field will force them both to decide just how far they'll go to win the game.

Winner of the NECRWA First Kiss Contest. A Kindle Bestseller.

Critic reviews

" Playing For Keeps is entertaining...readers will enjoy the unfolding relationship and anticipate the sequel featuring the secondary characters." ( Romantic Times Book Reviews)
In Liz Matis' latest from Little Hondo Press, Playing For Keeps you will get a wildly sexy romance with depth and laughs. A really fun read, the personalities of each of the main characters really shine bright in this romance making you fall in love with them, flaws and all. After all I think that is what makes a story so great, is seeing that your beloved characters seem so real and human as you do. With a strong supporting cast and a promised sequel this is a warm hearting and sexy romance that will surely heat up your cold winter nights. A page turner, bring on the sequel.( Book Junkie)

A Nice short listen.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I was an OK book, it had all the makes of a great book but just fell a little flat.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most Interesting was the back story, but we did not get to see much of that.

Any additional comments?

This was a good book, and if it was on sale it would be a winner for sure.
