Playing for Keeps is the third book in the Playing series by Ashlie Knapp. I loved this book because I am always drawn to the books where someone is on the run from a bad past and this one hit it home for me. While this book can be read as a standalone, characters from past books in this series do appear. I love how I am able to connect with the characters in this book and others in the series. Another great book in a great series.
Aria Cook might be the sassy and not a car in the world girl her friends and family see. Everyone sees what she wants them to see while she tends to her father’s bar and is a dancer for the Oklahoma City Thunders. What everyone doesn’t know or see is that she is running from a past that no matter how hard she tries she can’t escape. Then enter Trent, NBA star and the guy who doesn’t want anything other than to have fun. He cares about his career, his mother, and his sister. After a not to good date with Aria, he can’t walk away. He care about her and she can’t seem to get rid of him! What can happen to these two amazing characters, read and find out!
I loved this story.. From the guy who was a love and leave them, to Aria and her needing to get away from a past that haunts her. These characters are real and the story line draws you right in. I have to say this one is the best book I have read in the series. I love how Both Trent and Aria see what is blooming together as something so different and I love when things all start to come together. I give this book 4 stars and highly recommend not just this book but the series. This author truly has talent to draw you in and wanting more. I was able to read this book in one sitting and truly loved it, this is a book that I KNOW I will be reading again!
