Playing Dirty (Windy City Kink, Book 3)
Samhain Publishing / January 27, 2015 / $4.99 digital
What seems like surrender may not be surrender at all...
Paige Nelson has an amazing new life in a new city with her own business and new friends, her abusive ex-husband firmly in her past. Plans to expand her business are running into a few roadblocks, but she doesn't need a man to help her. She can do this on her own.
From the minute he lays eyes on Paige, prominent developer Raff Lauden wants her. Intensely. Urgently. Though petite and delicate usually isn't his type, he finds himself asking her out. Even more surprising? She says no.
Paige has a history of being attracted to dominant, controlling man. The kind she swore never to get involved with again. But maybe she's trying to resist the one man who can give her everything she's ever really wanted...
This is probably my favorite book I've read so far this year, and my favorite thing about Playing Dirty by Kelly Jamieson is how human the characters are. Paige and Raff are just so well developed. They're absolutely dynamic. In fact, (perhaps excluding Paige's ex) I don't think there's a single static character in the book. I also knew going in that this book takes place in the “middle” of a series, but I had no problem keeping up. This book definitely stands alone.
