BOOK REVIEW- Playing Dirty (Monkey Business #1) By C.L Parker

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.


Shaw Mathews and Cassidy Whalen work for the same sport’s agency and are both gunning for a partnership position by being the first one to sign up one of America’s top athletes. Shaw being the total a**hole that he is decides to seduce the ice queen Cassidy and eliminating the competition, but Cassidy is ready with a plan of her own to take down the alpha hunk with her own seduction. I really liked this book, the characters were both strong and likable and the story line was an interesting ride between the turbulent relationship between Shaw and Cassidy but also the relationships that she shared with her close group of friends and her family. I would have to say with all the books that I have read this one would have to have the most detailed and hottest sex scenes ever, can’t wait to get stuck into book two.
