I’m Payton Blake. A successful, balanced twenty-something girl living the dream.
OK. So it’s a big-ass lie.
I could be all of those things. If I had friends outside of work. And if I didn’t mainline watermelon slushies like they were a food group. It wouldn’t hurt if I’d had sex in the last year, either. (My best friend insists Jorge the Nightstand Boyfriend doesn’t count.)
But when you know where you’re headed, who needs to enjoy the ride? Even if part of me longed for a little between-the-sheets adventure, Max Donovan would be the last guy I’d call.
Sure, he made the indie video game that broke the internet. His eyebrow piercing’s sexy, in an ‘are-you-in-a-band?’ way, and fighting with him gets me off faster than Jorge on bezerker mode. But he’s arrogant. Presumptuous. Colder than a cactus and twice as prickly.
None of it changes the fact that I crave Max Donovan like a watermelon slushy on a hot summer day.
I should ignore him. But I can’t, because he just became my biggest client. And whether he’ll admit it or not, he needs me even more than I need him.
Game on, Max Donovan
I must thank the publisher for providing me with a copy of play. This book blew me away I started reading and couldn’t stop until I’d finished. The characters where brilliant and although very different from each other the attraction was electric.
Payton works hard and isn’t one to break the rules she’s plays everything safe and doesn’t like to step outside the box. When the finance company throws her a client that isn’t what she’s expecting she has to learn to play a different game. Payton wants to hate Max but she can’t help the way her body craves his attention and as much as she wants to play by the rules the attraction becomes too much. Soon she finds herself trying to close the deal and avoid getting hurt. Max makes her feel alive again and be the girl she use to be before her mum got sick. Can she help save Max’s business and her heart or will it be game over?
