It’s a brave thing this author has done.. instead of a damaged hero she’s written about Iris, a damaged heroine who is putting her life back together, she’s a Grad Student studying Psychology and is finally making some life goals after getting out of a bad relationship. She meets a strong-willed manwhore hero with an addict sister who keeps losing her way.. the sexual chemistry between them is strong and she quickly agrees to a one night stand.
Tattoo Artist Walker Williams hates commitment, never dates and he’s pretty much a one and done kinda guy.. but, when he has one of those steamy nights with Iris, moving on seems off. The pull between them is strong.. so is the continued attraction, the chemistry and the easy banter so they arrange an exclusive ‘friends with benefits’ arrangement to scratch each other’s sexual itch. Through various rendezvous (in and out of the bedroom) they end up spending more and more time together, getting to know each other, until they become inseparable. But Iris is keeping back a secret - one that she’s sure will destroy them.. oh she tries to come clean a few times but Walker keeps stopping her assuring her whatever it is it doesn’t matter and “the past is in the past”. Well you know how that’s going to end and it doesn’t just rock the boat it capsizes then sinks it.
Worth a credit? Yes, I really enjoyed the dual POV storyline, the vulnerabilities of the characters and the emotional struggles Iris and Walker had to eventually evolve their relationship. I did think there was a wee bit too much sex (gasp horror I know I know) and I found myself fast forwarding a few scenes. The Duet style narration is always my favorite kind and done by Kai and Wen it’s perfect and you really can’t fault it.

Playing is another great story by Crystal Kaswell. This book revolves around Walker and Iris and their relationship. Along the way we get to know them as people and want them to overcome the hurdles that are put in their way. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more from this author in this series.
The narrators did a fantastic job.
Wonderful story told by wonderful narrators. Wen & Kai bring Crystal's story to life in such a way that you really do lose yourself in it. I found myself reacting out loud... not good when you're on the bus! It's an emotional rollercoaster. Brace yourself!
