THE PLAY MATE
by Kendall Ryan
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.
I remember falling totally in crush with my brother's best friend. You know the type of crush I mean... where you stomach constricts every time you see him, you lose your ability to breathe, and your knees refuse to hold you up.
Well, this is the case with Evie. Smith has always been THE ONE. Add to that the fact that he was always sweet to her, protecting her, giving her first aid when she needed it, and always being kind. Her impression of him has always been of the impossible McDreamy she would love to love.
This book is amusing with all the antics Evie goes through to seduce Smith and then hide her feelings so her brother will not have a heart attack. It is a feel good book with enough sexiness you will not want to put it down!
I am reviewing this book voluntarily because I just plain loved it! Thank you to the author for a copy of this book.
