Playing Dirty: Monkey Business Trio - C. L. Parker

This book is Shaw Matthews and Cassidy Whalen as rivals for a client.  They are competing for a coveted partnership position with their company.  Each has a mentor pulling for them, but they cannot decide whom to choose - so they come up with a competition for the spot.


Shaw and Cassidy are not really attracted to one another at the onset.  They learn about one another by sizing up the competition and then it begins.  While trying to win the heart of a money making sports figure, they get to know one another.


Soon they are struggling to keep their hands off each other.  Seriously HOT Shaw is thinking about Cassidy all the time.  They go to the same bar after work, and now they are running into one another everywhere they go.  They even start to stalk each other while wooing their client.


How far is too far?  Is what they are doing actually falling in love?  Shaw is sure he is beginning to see another side to Cassidy, but she is afraid to trust him.  Her past is a man who still cares about her and is easily her best friend.  Can Shaw be coming more important than him?


While there are terrific phrases, witty banter, clever quips, lots of hot sex, and much complaining... there is also a good solid story in here.  This book makes you want to root for one or the other and realize you have been rooting for them both.  Since I found it a fun read I will give it a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
