Editorial Reviews


“Loaded with wit and snark, great characters, and lots of hot, steamy, naughty sex, Playing Dirty is sure to satisfy.”New York Times bestselling author J. Kenner

“Fun, action-packed . . . Readers will be eager to read the sequel, hoping for more rough and dirty sexual acrobatics, friendship, backstabbing, and empathy.”Publishers Weekly
“This snappy, sexy novel moves at breakneck speed, with abundant snark and sports euphemisms. . . . [C. L.] Parker’s penchant for dry humor and vivid, voracious sex scenes breathes life into a well-trodden premise.”Library Journal
“Parker writes intense storylines that anyone can relate to. Her characters are complex, with long and sometimes turbulent pasts that they have overcome, that still continues to affect their present. . . . I cannot wait to see where she takes this new series.”Fresh Fiction
Playing Dirty is [a] top ten hottest book for this year.”—Under the Covers
“Smokin’ hot, toe-curling, yummilicious! Yup . . . just a few words to describe this hot, hot read.”—The Reading Cafe
“A story and characters that are unforgettable and equally super hot, intense and emotional!”—Collector of Book Boyfriends

About the Author

C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She’s a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort all her life—which translates to “she just wouldn’t shut the hell up”—it’s no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there’s no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.

Playing Dirty is Book # 1 in Monkey Business Trio Series by C.L.Parker

This is my first book by this author and it won't be my last. I was gifted an ARC for an honest review.

We start off with two very high strung over achieving Sports Agents from Striker Sports Entertainment a very prestigious agency founded by Wade Price and Minty Prather.

Upon his retirement Monty was determined to pass over his part of the partnership to Shaw Mathews, which only caused a problem because Wade had intentions of making Cassidy Whalen partner. In lieu of it all they decided to put both Shaw and Cassidy against each other to see who would land the sort after star athlete to the company, leaving these two very competitive agents battling against each other for the big win of Denver "Rocket Man " Rockford.

The tension between these two is combustible to say the least they have a "Love/ Hate relationship but they see it as only a hateful one.

Shaw Mathews. Is a sexy charismatic playboy and will stop at nothing to get what he wants, whereas Cassidy (The Ice Queen) is very prim and proper and also gets what she wants but... What you see is not always what you get.

Both Cassidy and Shaw have hidden secrets and when they are forced to reveal them all h*** breaks lose.

Cassidy does things that she is constantly questioning to try to get this partnership, she also uses Denver's family to as bait, whereas Shaw decides his approach to seduce Cassidy will distract her and throw her off her game.

This story was very enjoyable I read it at one sitting the banter between the two main characters was brilliant and entertaining and Yes the sex between these two who supposedly hated each other was off the charts HOT.

“Playing Dirty” in three words: Entertaining. Sassy. HOT!!! This was the first book I’ve read by C.L. Parker and I couldn’t put it down. Shaw and Cassidy are sports agents vying for partnership at an elite sports agency. Whoever gets star quarterback Denver “Rocket Man” Rockford to sign as his agent will win the partnership.

This is a true enemies to lovers story in every sense. Cassidy and Shaw dislike each other, and by dislike I mean hate. Unlike similar stories though, their animosity isn’t easily resolved in the first few chapters. It’s their feud that fuels Cassidy and Shaw’s competition to sign Rocket and propels the entire storyline. Their verbal sparring and attempts to one-up each other were really enjoyable.

Simmering beneath the bitterness is some serious sexual tension and before long, the hostility between Shaw and Cassidy spills over into the bedroom. In fact, it’s fair to say this is more of an enemies and lovers story. Playing Dirty is erotica at its very best. The sex scenes are well written and absolutely panty-soaking hot. More importantly, however, the sex scenes are interwoven with an entertaining storyline and interesting characters. I loved Shaw. He comes across as an arrogant jerk but then we slowly discover that appearances are deceiving and there’s a lot that he’s hiding.

My only problem with the book is that it ends in a cliffhanger! Nowhere in the book description does it indicate this isn’t a standalone. Yes, this is the first book in the Monkey Business series, but I thought each book would deal with a different couple. I’m not sure why another book is needed to resolve Shaw and Cassidy’s story when it could easily be wrapped up in this book. I hope this isn’t another case of an author taking one good idea and dragging it out into a long, tired series.

Playing Dirty C.L.Parker (Monkey Business Trio 1)
Genre: Erotica,
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
I’ve read and enjoyed sports based romances before so was looking forward to this one. It was a fun read, lots of humour threaded through (amazenuts...that made me snigger, and the characters were very well drawn. I loved Shawn and Cassidy, and their animosity. Its that love/hate relationship and made for some great dialogue. the story is told from alternating POV and that worked well for me, letting me see their inner thoughts. Cassidy’s friends were great too and I hope they continue into the next novels.
Cassidy is a woman working in a man’s world, and has worked very hard to get where she is. She wants to make partner, but so does Shaw, and he’s also come a long way to get where he is.Their boss tells them whichever gets the new signing, gets to be partner – Game on!
Well, the heat is definitely fiery here, with plenty of steamy, sensual sex. They really just can’t seem to keep their hands off each other once they start, and even when they’re f ing they still keep up the snark and bitching, leading to some great humour. One thing though – Shaw needs to learn there’s a name for people that rely on the withdrawal method – Parents. He knows Cassidy is on the pill, but she could be lying to him after all – and most important - as he also thinks she’s sleeping with others and vice versa I’m astonished that they kept on having sex without a condom. That’s not something someone in their positions, very career orientated, would do surely? and its definitely not a message to be sending out. ( still, given the failure rate of condoms in romance novels where characters always seem to fall pregnant even though they use them, maybe it’s not such a problem!
