For fans of Bared to You and Beautiful Bastard comes the start of an irresistible new erotic romance series in which competition is the ultimate seduction.

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.

Cassidy and Shaw are both very talented and successful sports agents.
They're both working for the same company and they can't stand each other!
And now their boss told them, that whoever wins this next huge football client, will become new partner.


Shaw decides to seduce the 'Ice-Queen', to make her lose focus.
And Cassidy .... well, her friends put that exact same idea in her head....

Now they have to not only fight to be the better agent and get the job - they have to fight against their growing feelings for each other.
But pfff - who has feelings - not those two ☺ at least they both think they still hate each other..
Let's see how long it takes them to get their HEA ☺

Or will there be a horrible Cliffhanger??

 I'm not telling you, of course ☺
I don't want to spoil your reading pleasure ☺

OK - there WILL be a Cliffy :/
I kinda thought that the next book in the series would be about secondary characters - but nope - Shaw and Cassidy's story will take longer than this one book! I LIKE!!!

Great Story!

I really enjoyed reading it.
You fall in love with Shaw really fast and we kind of get the impression from him, that it was Cassidy who's responsible for their constant fighting. She had the wrong impression of him, before he ever started working at the company. Shaw was actually looking forward to working with her...but she insulted him with her first words to him :( Poor guy.
But it's not her fault at all - it's just all those rumors she heard - all not true of course☺ And because he's just so good-looking and comfortable in his own skin - Cassidy immediately thought he must be a horrible person.

It's really funny to read about their constant fighting and insulting each other....
But there's also this huge attraction and the sizzling sexiness whenever they're in a room together!
You just know that they're perfect for each other - they just need to realize it...

We have LOTS of sexy scenes!!!

Some of them might not actually happen though ☺☺☺

There are some great characters in this book - can't wait to read more about them all in the next books!

Some things I didn't like all that much..
Nothing too bad - it was just a bit too much redundant stuff in there for me...
And they both talk a bit too much about themselves - how great they are .... not really humble those two ☺

PLAYING DIRTY was a great start to a new series!
Very sexy & funny & adorable!! GO. GET. IT.

And now please Ms. Parker - GIVE. ME. GETTING. ROUGH. NOW!!!




C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort for all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there’s no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.
