Laurelin Paige’s all-new contemporary romance, DIRTY SEXY PLAYER is NOW AVAILABLE!
Cover Designer: Laurelin Paige & Tom Barnes
Available in audio first, New York Times best-selling author Laurelin Paige’s newest red-hot romance!
Weston King knows how to play. But wild nights and owning an extensive collection of women’s panties don’t carry the thrill they once did, so when his business partner Donovan suggests an outrageous plan to allow them to take over their competition, Wes takes him up on the offer. The crazy idea? Marry the competitor.
Elizabeth Dyson, the bride-to-be in question, is on board with the plan. She wants access to her trust fund and can only get it once she marries. Each has something the other wants – all they have to do is pretend to like each other well enough to tie the knot.
Only trouble is, playing fiancé to Elizabeth isn’t quite that simple. Wes finds her sexy and brilliant…and soon wishes their engagement wasn’t fake at all. Not that he’d ever tell her that.
But a lover boy like Wes can only stand an empty bed for so long…and even the best of players has to put down his cards eventually.
NOW AVAILABLE WITH THE FINEST VENDORS

Weston King and Elizabeth Dyson like you never got the chance to see them in the Dirty duet. From the very moment I discovered that this author was going to be releasing a duology about this pair, I just knew from the pit of my stomach that it was going to be combustible and totally off the charts hot. Like hotter than the sun hot. You can’t set up a fake business marriage and not have the plans turn inside out and upside down.
If you have read the Dirty duet, you’re well aware of how devious and despising Donovan can be, and believe you me he doesn’t change his tune at all. This story runs in the same timeline as the previous story and there are a lot of scenes that readers of the previous books will recognise as they were also in the other duology set from another point of view. Like so many stories before this, but unlike some of those, this doesn’t feel like a do-over. The feel is different; there’s more ambience and more emotion. More heat and emotion.
‘One week to try and forget how incredible our night had been.
But how did you forget a night that was unforgettable?’
The relationship between Weston and Elizabeth is hugely impacted by other characters in this mess of a tale. The confusion over why others would be so interested in the real status of their relationship weighed heavily on me most of the time. How could someone who has been around for so many years as a friend suddenly appear so calculating and black-hearted? Which we know they can be, but how much of their soul are they willing to give away for the betterment of their own portfolio? Alternatively, is all this venom about protecting someone as close as family from being hurt? I’ll let you decide that one when you read this little goldmine of iniquity.
“It’s not for keeps, you know.”
“I don’t gather that it’s really any of your business.”
“Oh, my dear, but it is my business. This who arrangement has been my business.”
The most interesting scenes of all were the ones with Weston’s parents, which left no room for imagination about how Weston felt about them and why it was the way it was with his parents.
Polar opposites though is Elizabeth, she is close to her family and avidly wants to spend time with them; whereas Weston couldn’t be any more rabid with his avoidance. This made me wonder how such a wonderfully open and friendly person such as Weston could be so hateful and spiteful.
Do not be surprised to learn that this book like the previous duet, ends in a cliffhanger, and as much as I hate cliffhangers, this one had to end the way it did. How else would the door be left open for the sequel!
