“C.L. Parker packed this book with one hell of an erotic punch!”
~ Under the Covers
Both Cassidy and Shaw are sports agents at the top of their game. They have always been in competition, but now the stakes are higher. A partnership position is up for grabs, and Cassidy and Shaw are equally qualified. Only one will get the spot and only if they land the account with San Diego’s top Quarterback. This competition will not only bring out their hate for each other, but their lust, and if they’re lucky, maybe love.
I am impressed with Cassidy and Shaw. These two are such goal-oriented people who are obsessed with winning, and because they are equally driven and competitive, they found each other irresistible. It was pure hate and lust. C.L. Parker packed this book with one hell of an erotic punch! I was taken aback with the s*x scenes in this book. It wasn’t quite BDSM but more kink, IMO. There was a lot of power play, and there were times it happened in places least expected. Bottom line, the steam factor was off the charts.
As far as the relationship goes, I thought it was cute and sometimes a little disturbing that they couldn’t see what was in front of them. As much as they played coy, it was obvious they felt something for each other. You’ll see that it’s not something they can control for very long. Unfortunately, I’m ‘not sure where Parker will take this story. Be forewarned, there is a bit of a cliffhanger at the end of this book. Cassidy and Shaw’s story is not quite over yet, and I have a feeling it will get worse before it gets better. There are signs of a love triangle in the future of this story. I’m guessing it will be a bad boy vs. the boy next door kind of story. It gives me butterflies in my stomach just thinking about it.
The story of the hero/heroine and secondary character kept me turning the pages as well. I loved that the storyline did not solely concentrate on the primary characters. I thought it gave the story a little more substance. Overall, Parker did a great job with this book. Playing Dirty is on my top ten hottest book for this year.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
