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.

Don't miss this sexy friends-to-lovers romp—get your copy of The Play Mate today!

    I was expecting so much more especially after the first book! The quality of the story wasn’t up to par with the first book.

    I enjoyed reading this book, but was able to put it down several times. It didn’t keep me interested.
  • Fun

    By Susanmcqusie
    Fun forbidden romance between younger sister and brother’s best friend. Evie decides that she wants a Smith to be her “do-over” when it comes to sex (her one and only time was a disaster). She sneaks into his room in Paris, and tries to seduce him. Smith is attracted to her, but says no. The problem escalates when Evie’s brother announces that they will all be working together. Of course, they cannot fight their attraction, and decide to date on the down low. Definitely a fun read.
  • Good book, ok read

    By KaylaaSmileyy
    This book was a good read very short and I thought there would be more to the story at the end before the epilogue. There were parts where I didn’t understand how one scene went to another but overall was a good book and a good read.
  • Not Quite As Good As The Room Mate

    By Katiekoz
    3.5☆ I liked The Play Mate, but I liked The Room Mate more. Again I felt like I was missing a bit of a connection with the characters. I still liked both Evie and Smith, but something isn't quite connecting with me and making me love them. They're both smart, caring, and good people; They make a good couple. The storyline was pretty good. It wasn't exactly unique, but I still liked it. There were a lot of parts that gave me a good chuckle, which I enjoyed. I thought it was a good book overall, just not my favorite of hers.
