Review: Playing Dirty by C.L. Parker

Playing Dirty

Summary small

Shaw Matthews plays to win, and he intends to snag a coveted partnership at San Diego’s hottest sports agency by signing America’s top athlete. Only one woman stands in his way: rival agent Cassidy Whalen. But eliminating the competition will be Shaw’s pleasure when he concocts an ingenious plan to seduce Cassidy and show the beautiful ballbreaker who’s the better man for the job. That is, until Cassidy turns the tables—and their steamy encounters start breaking all the rules.

Cassidy has worked hard to make it in a man’s cutthroat arena, and she isn’t going down without a fight, not even against the six-two alpha hunk whose rock-hard body awakens desires she’s never known before. As Cassidy shares night after night of unending passion with Shaw, the game begins to change. Now Cassidy stands to lose everything—unless a fiery contest of wills can become a winning proposition for two people who keep raising the stakes.

Playing Dirty is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

My Review small

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Shaw and Cassidy are on the same team but are still super competitive with each other. I think their bosses had a stroke of genius pitting them against each other. (I am sure they disagree but they’re fictional so I can say that without repercussions.)

Both characters worked very hard to get where they are. They both have different backgrounds but that doesn’t lessen how hard each of them has worked.

Their rivalry manages to get them into situations that are hot, hot, hot! Neither of them wants to back down so they go all in with everything they do. Once I started reading I had to keep going and find out what would happen next.

Then I got to the end.


This is book 1 of a trilogy so I knew it was going to happen but I wasn’t ready for it to end! I did that thing where I keep swiping my finger on the screen hoping it would turn and there would be more.

Another part of the book I just loved was Cassidy’s friends. They each have their own stories that I seriously hope get to be told throughout the rest of the trilogy.

P.S. Don’t tell them I said they were fictional.
