When high school golden boy Cade Gallari publicly revealed he'd slept with "fat girl" Ava Spencer to win a bet, he broke her heart. Now a decade older and a head-turner with her own concierge business, Ava isn't the gullible dreamer she once was—and she plans to prove it when Cade, hotter than ever, breezes back into town with an offer she can’t refuse.
A documentary film producer, Cade is shooting a movie about the mysterious mansion Ava inherited. And he wants her as his personal concierge. She's certainly professional enough to be at his beck and call without giving him everything he wants. Like another shot at having her in his bed. But Ava doesn't count on Cade's determination. Because he's never gotten over her. And he's not above playing dirty to score a second chance at a red-hot future...
Playing Dirty was actually the story in this trilogy I was looking forward to the most. We kind of get hints in the previous two books about what Ava’s issue is with Cade and what he did to her as kids. It’s pretty heartbreaking, actually, and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to like him because of it. I love the idea that these two have had something all through their childhood though.
Ava is this sexy, curvaceous bombshell of a woman. I loved that she isn’t your typical size 2 female. And Cade is a guy who’s worked through a lot of crap in his life, and he’s now ready to make things right. Their chemistry together is totally off the charts! I loved how they would try to out-tease each other. It was TONS of fun! While it was fun, it had really emotional moments too though, especially when we’re taken back into their past.
I read from a lot of people on Goodreads who’d read the first two books that Playing Dirty almost didn’t get published! That would have been a shame because I think this is my favorite of the three. I think I’ll look into reading more books from Susan Andersen soon.
