4.5 Star review ~ Playing Dirty by C.L. Parker

 Amazon // B&N  // Audible // Kobo


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.


I loved the dialogue between Shaw and Cassidy.  The love/hate relationship was wonderful and funny!! How can you not love the funny banter between these two!! I think it made the book better.  Although I love everyone's POV, being able to get it from both characters at the same time was so good!!

Cassidy is a hard woman.  She goes after what she wants and she doesn't hold back.  Men don't scare her and working in the industry that she's in, makes her want more. I don't feel that she has to prove to any one how good she is but she needs to prove to herself that she is worthy and smart.  Shaw was the total opposite.  I know he works hard but things come to him a little easier.  

Cassidy and Shaw were hot...they were needy but only toward each other. The competitiveness between the two was funny and they pulled out all the strings you could think of.  Jealously is a good thing but boy when it shows up, there are a lot of things that could happen.

I loved the competion between the two to go after one man.  It was so funny and they pulled out everything they had to get him. Who was the winner? Did it stop them and how jealous can they really become?

I laughed a lot in the book!! It was absolutely funny but the intimacy between these two was nothing but HOT!!


C. L. Parker
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.
