Publisher's Summary

Walker Williams is my f--k buddy. I get his carefree smile. I get his inked arms. I get his massive ahem.

It's the perfect arrangement. The cocky playboy makes me c--e. I hold onto my secrets.

No getting lost in his dark eyes. No melting into his soft embrace. No falling head over heels. We're playing. That's it.

I need to think about his lips on my neck, his hands on my skin, his hard body against mine. If he unlocks my heart, if he finds out the truth.... There's no way he's staying.

Playing is a smoking hot standalone romance with a friends with benefits theme, a dirty talking playboy hero, and a strong heroine who brings him to his knees. Come see why fans say "no one writes broken bad boys like Crystal Kaswell."

A STEAMY STRUGGLE TO A SWEET HEA

It’s a brave thing this author has done.. instead of a damaged hero she’s written about Iris, a damaged heroine who is putting her life back together, she’s a Grad Student studying Psychology and is finally making some life goals after getting out of a bad relationship. She meets a strong-willed manwhore hero with an addict sister who keeps losing her way.. the sexual chemistry between them is strong and she quickly agrees to a one night stand.

Tattoo Artist Walker Williams hates commitment, never dates and he’s pretty much a one and done kinda guy.. but, when he has one of those steamy nights with Iris, moving on seems off. The pull between them is strong.. so is the continued attraction, the chemistry and the easy banter so they arrange an exclusive ‘friends with benefits’ arrangement to scratch each other’s sexual itch. Through various rendezvous (in and out of the bedroom) they end up spending more and more time together, getting to know each other, until they become inseparable. But Iris is keeping back a secret - one that she’s sure will destroy them.. oh she tries to come clean a few times but Walker keeps stopping her assuring her whatever it is it doesn’t matter and “the past is in the past”. Well you know how that’s going to end and it doesn’t just rock the boat it capsizes then sinks it.

Worth a credit? Yes, I really enjoyed the dual POV storyline, the vulnerabilities of the characters and the emotional struggles Iris and Walker had to eventually evolve their relationship. I did think there was a wee bit too much sex (gasp horror I know I know) and I found myself fast forwarding a few scenes. The Duet style narration is always my favorite kind and done by Kai and Wen it’s perfect and you really can’t fault it.

Another great couple

Walker is a tatoo artist, happy to spend his nights with random women leaving all feelings and emotions aside. Then he meets Iris and they agree to start a friends with benefits hook up with no strings attached. This works out great until they begin spending all their time together and realise that they are now basically in a relationship.

Iris is hiding a secret from Walker that will change his perception of her, but is their new found bond enough to weather this storm? Another fantastic dual POV narration that kept me excited the whole way through. The sexual chemistry was off the charts Hot! Loved it. I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this audio book and this is my honest review.

HOT! HOT! HOT!

I received an ARC and this is my honest review. Walker and Iris’s story is deep and so amazing. I love how Crystal makes you feel everything along with the characters. You feel their pain, happiness and love through her writing. They struggle like everyone in life trying to find themselves and find their place. Kai and Wen step the characters up with their vocals creating a whole new experience from just reading the book. A Must Listen!
