I'm Payton Blake. A twenty-something girl living the dream.

Sure, my co-workers are misogynists, my best friend might be an undercover spy, and the only love I've been getting is from Jorge the Nightstand Boyfriend. 

Welcome to the modern world. 

I’m not looking for real-life love. Even if I had time in my day after bailing out my family, Max Donovan is the last guy I'd call. 

The gamer-turned-CEO has the kind of blue eyes you could drown in. A piercing that makes me bite my lip. And I'd pay a lot of money to see that man with his joystick.

But he's arrogant. Cocky. Jaded. Did I mention divorced?

He also just became my biggest client. Which means even if I want to stay away from him, something tells me he's not staying away from me.

Game on, Max Donovan.

If you like smart, quirky, slow-burn romance that pays off like fireworks on the Fourth of July? You'll love PLAY! For fans of Lauren Blakely, Melanie Harlow and Kendall Ryan.


  • I loved it

    Yep, this really is as the synopsis says "a quirky 70k word standalone about life, love, and the pursuit of orgasms, I mean, video games." I adored this story so much, I loved Max, he was arrogant, smouldering and sexy, ooh, and rich and intelligent. What's not to like? Then we have Payton, she was an absolute blast, she's funny, sexy, intelligent, and just a straight up good honest person, I loved her. Payton works for a bank and is appointed to manage a financial loan for Max who owns one of the biggest gaming companies going. Let's just say they don't always see eye to eye in business. Lines get crossed and business becomes pleasure. Payton is unable to mix the two, the lines get all blurry. Does Max trust Payton enough to let her truly 'in'? The chemistry between the two is a definite 'hell yes", and the banter between all the characters that make up this wonderful story just adds to the fun, easy vibe of the book. Loved it. I received an advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
