Smith Hamilton has it all—he's smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he's not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm's length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she's blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family's lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She's crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie's plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.

The Play Mate is a cute and sweet friends to lovers and also a best friends sistertype of romance. This romance is definitely forbidden for Evie and Smith. They both secretly want each other but can’t risk it until Evie finally does something so naughty that it shocks Smith completely. She sneaks into his bed one night in a hotel and makes out with him. It isn’t until they get a little too far that Smith realizes he’s with his best friends sister…not the hottie he met at the bar earlier that night. That night is where Smith starts to realize he really wants Evie but he wants to only have a friends with benefits type of relationship. Nothing serious, ever. He is not the type of man to settle down with a woman.

Oh Smith…He acts so hard and arrogant yet deep down the man has a huge heart and loves so deeply. He just needs to allow himself to go for it. The Play Mate is one hell of a slow burn romance that keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting for them to just bang and then wait for them to fall in love… will it happen? 4 flirty and swoony stars for another fabulous read.

Hi, I'm Dena! I love my smutty books!!! The more hot sex and drama in a book, the better. Sometimes I love a dark read, but I mostly love the Hot Alpha males and can never get enough. Occasionally I really enjoy the sweet romances.I love books that hook me in right from the start and stirs emotion in me.
