I really wanted to hate this book.
The heroine screams all the time,
Never stands up for herself,
Gets beat up by people a lot... AND
Is in constant need of rescuing.
Yet, I found myself drawn into the story (AND LIKING IT) even though the heroine isn't spunky enough.
This is book two of the Risky Business series. Two former best friends, who were in love with a woman who "supposedly" (I say supposed because I am not convince the lying manipulating harridan is actually dead). a woman who took her own life because she could not stand to come between the two friends. Ryker, a police detective, and hot as hell is the second man on the scene, but the one who gets Sage. Parker, an investment banker is also super hot but has failed to return her affection so far.
In this installment, we see the bad guy from the first book come back to hurt Parker and Sage. In the mean time, Ryker goes undercover and finds out his partner is on the take, which places them all at risk. Sage finally gets a taste (YUM) of Parker.
Initially I wanted Ryker to be her man, but after finding out that her father is a bad ass, I find myself asking, why not both? Both men are swoon worthy, and very good in bed. Why should she choose? Parker can be a bit of a flake, but Ryker definitely has his moments...
I am angry that I have to wait five months to find out if she will develop as a leading character who can save the men she loves instead of having them save her. I do hope that Sage will grow a pair and eventually solve the issue--to my satisfaction.
Like I said, I didn't want to like this book, but I was drawn in. I hope this helps you decide that you must invest a credit. It is certainly swoon worthy!

What did you like best about Playing Dirty? What did you like least?
I don't know if I can stand another book with this much indecisiveness! One person that gets into this many situations and has this many encounters with two men is a bit much. The story was good in the first and with a few fast forwards I got through the second book. Not sure I'm willing to sit through 10 plus hours of the same old, same old for the next and hopefully last book. Too much wishy washy feelings going on!
What was most disappointing about Tiffany Snow’s story?
Saige not being able to make up her mind. Drove me crazy! Pick one guy already
What about Laura Hopatcong’s performance did you like?
She did good with voice recognition. I usually knew which character was speaking.
Was Playing Dirty worth the listening time?
Most of it. A little unrealistic. When you get burned you don't just jump into to bed for sex especially when your hand is damaged.
Any additional comments?
Why three books? Looks like an attempt to make more money. I could stand most of the bulls**t if she could choose one guy and stay with her choice. This switching back and forth all the way through both the first and second books got on my nerves.
