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.

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.

Book Review: 5 stars!!!
This book just finished me off! I got addicted to it since the very first word and It sucked me up so much that I didn’t understand when I got to the end of it! Plus, holy moly, WHAT AN END!! I stil haven’t recovered from that – cruel – cliffhanger!!
Seriously, I don’t really know from where should I start so I can give a review worthy of this book. My emotions are all over the place right now but one thing is absolutely certain: Shaw and Cassidy’s story REALLY ROCKED!!! Every chapter was better than the one before it. I never knew what it will happen next because the story was EXACTLY what the title says: DIRTY PLAY!! 😛
But, first, a small introduction of our fantastic characters, Shaw and Cass. Shawn Matthews and Cassidy Whalen are two agents in a sports agency. They are both the best in what they do, very dynamic and…… competitive as hell with each other! So, imagine what happens when they have to persuade the biggest American athlete to sign with one of them – which also means getting the partnership – and make him one of agency’s clients. And TA-DA! That is the moment when is GAME ON and things are going to get extremelly off-the-charts steamy.
Shaw and Cassidy start a very dirty war between them trying to succeed their mission. They pull some very dirty tricks and go to some great lengths to get what they want. The competition between them is just irresistibly delicious and….. dirty of course! 😉 But the game starts to change when they start having some very steamy & hot – WHEW! – encounters. That’s where all break loose and there is nothing that anyone can do to change it…..
As if a feisty little devil was going to appear on my shoulder and say, ‘Boyfrieeeend, you should’ve seen the dream this woman had about you. Whew!
For me, this is the first C. L. Parker book I read and I have to say that I loved it. Her writing is amazing and really captivates you. In this book, she created a story and characters that are unforgettable and equally super hot, intense and emotional! Also, each one of the characters has lines that are just some serious gems and you can’t get them out of your head once you read them!
If you’re going to give a hickey, put it where it won’t be seen.
Playing Dirty is a book that will leave you without a doubt breathless and have you really squirmy during it! And after that cliffhanger, I can’t wait until the second book is out…. I want to know what in God’s name is going to happen with these two!!
