Jake & Dana's story. Great characters and story. Much more depth than the usual romance. Excellent emotional element. This is one of my favorites by this author!
My only complaint was the ebook was full of errors... grammatical, omission errors, misspelled, and more. This seems to happen a lot in ebooks and it never ceases to annoy me. Just because it's not on paper it doesn't mean the product should have shoddy workmanship. Please get proofreaders worthy of your works!!!
Keep in mind that this is an erotic romantic read. 4* of 5*
Dana knows that Mason is just a good time, that Jake is forever, but she's just interested in playing, enjoying her sexuality now that she has two men who will share her. She plays with them both, unconcerned, until one encounter with Jake changes her life. When you know you're going to be a mother, you start to realize either playtime is over...or you have to start playing for keeps. And telling Jake and Mason takes that to a whole other level.
What started out as a relatively simple menage a trois erotica romance novella with Walker's classic intense romantic angst takes a turn after that and becomes a much more serious and emotionally powerful and poignant story of love and unspeakable loss. I have nothing against the first part, really, but it lacked a bit in depth and character development for my tastes. The second part was so intense, however, and the emotions so vibrant and real as Jake and Dana try to survive a tragedy that shakes them to the soul, that it utterly eclipsed the beginning and made it seem shallow.
I can't say I enjoyed the second part - it was very dark for the genre - but it was very well written and felt very emotionally honest. I have to give Walker credit for the courage and strength to write something so personally devastating. I also have to admit I loved the end and appreciated the hope and joy and promise that was reintroduced. I may not have been expecting the breadth of the story in Playing For Keeps, but I'm glad I read it.
Originally reviewed for One Good Book Deserves Another.
what I'm making for Thanksgiving tomorrow.....My mistake?? I opened
my Kindle and started reading this book.....I could NOT put it down
until I read the last word....SO WONDERFUL!!!!! Sexy!!!-while I'm not
really into the menage thing in a love story, this was truly depicted
perfectly and just added to Jake and Dana's love story.....Shiloh Walker
never ever disappoints!!!!
Jake has loved Dana his entire life. Seeing her at the hospital where they both worked was difficult enough, but since she lived across the street from him, seeing her with Mason was killing him. He never intended to become involved in a ménage, but if it was the only way he could have her then he would take what he could get. It took everything in him to keep his cool around Mason. He just wanted to shout out his undying love from the rooftop. Jake wanted a real relationship with Dana, and hoped that someday his wish would be granted.
This is a very sensual but a highly emotional story. Most of this story is told from Jake's point of view, and we get to see his inner struggle. He has longed for Dana his entire life, and to be forced to share her is almost more than he can bare.
