In this story Louise goes out with roomie Flo & wakes up in bed with the sexy Dan. A one night stand that turns out to be much more quite quickly although the pair did not exchange names Dan had snooped in her purse to get her cell # etc.....where there is a will there is a way.
Although the author provided us with images of the kinky connection the pair had it was more of hints of it not full blown descriptions of the total act which left more to the imagination. This was actually refreshing.
The author entertained us with the journey of discovery for both characters. I felt they both had much to learn about themselves & each other. I was left wondering if there would be more.
Louise makes me laugh, along with help from friend Flora. And when it comes to word games with Dan Louise plays the game well. Louise enjoyed a one night stand that certainly changed her life.
Dan has an interesting past which doesn't live too far away!!!! But what secret is Dan hiding from Louise!!!
Along with reading her Pretty series this author is fast becoming a favourite.
I felt like there was a nod to THAT book, but with much less of the clichéd vocabulary. Rather, for the most part, the sex games are hinted at. Certainly, I have read books which have been much more ... detailed. And I think that this is one of the reasons why I enjoyed the book. It makes for a very entertaining read - hot, sultry and downright sexy.
Be warned, this is hot stuff.

These two characters burn the pages up! Get ready to set your blood on fire.

Cutting Muse Blog Review
Before going into the story and the characters, I must say that the writing is simply wonderful! The language used is descriptive and creates just the right tone - the kinds that draws a reader in. Already head over heals in love with the feel, there wasn’t much need for a clincher but what made this read for me was the dialogue. There’s nothing better than the teasing banter between lovers as their initial word “game” was a lesson in seduction. Louise’ personality is illuminated in her interactions with her sarcastic roommate Flo and curious workmates. But Dan, Dan really draws Louise out oh her well protected shell.
I loved the way the story is plotted, starting at a point in time where the characters reflect back to what will turn into pivotal moments in their lives. I struggle with calling this anything but the “unfolding” of the story and for me, when it’s done right it’s magical. Once we get through their initial meeting, things are fun and naughty as they move forward with getting better acquainted.
What complicates Louise and Dan’s growing affection is his past. Ten years or so her senior, Dan’s family and his work becomes something they have to contend with. Louise herself is riddled by doubts in the advantages of committed relationships so it’s up to Dan to do right by Louise. Observing these two as their connection grows is where both fun and heartache lie. There were a few scary moments as Dan is tested by family, club members and Louise.
There were times that my heart ached (that lovely angst) but Playing Games simply left me feeling giddy. This is a 5 star read and comes with my must read recommendation. I loved the writing so much that I’ve purchased the Pretty series and I’m confident I will love them. Ms Alam you have a new fan!
Louise gets dragged out by work mates, meets a sexy stranger in a club, waking the next day and leaving before he wakes up. Told in flashbacks we get the back story of the who's, how's and why's and when Louise's sexy stranger gets in touch with her, she's tempted to meet up again. Can a one night stand really lead to a relationship? Or will it always be about sex? I loved this book, the characters are likeable, the story is great and of course it's hot. Daniel, although he wants Louise, he's keeping secrets from her and Louise doesn't exactly like to share things about herself either. It's not all plain sailing but at the same time it's not one of those drama filled books either. I really did enjoy this book, i read it in one sitting, the banter between Louise and Daniel brought a smile to my face and i ended up loving Daniel. Highly recommend if you're looking for a light hearted, sexy romance.
