    Read the blurb for this one and said to myself Who is going to read that silly book Put it out of my head Have been on a bit of a SB marathon and sort of wanted to keep reading her books Saw some friends had given this one 5 stars so decided to take the plunge I loved it After five long years in federal prison, Griff Burkett is a free man But the disgraced Cowboys quarterback can never return to life as he knew it before he was caught cheating In a place where football is practic Read the blurb for this one and said to myself Who is going to read that silly book Put it out of my head Have been on a bit of a SB marathon and sort of wanted to keep reading her books Saw some friends had given this one 5 stars so decided to take the plunge I loved it After five long years in federal prison, Griff Burkett is a free man But the disgraced Cowboys quarterback can never return to life as he knew it before he was caught cheating In a place where football is practically a religion, Griff committed a cardinal sin, and no one is forgiving. Enter stage left, Foster Speakman, owner and CEO of SunSouth Airlines, and his wife, Laura They have a proposition for Griff and, as he is down on his luck with little money and no job prospects, he accepts He was bored.And possibly for the first time in his life, lonely I d say Fuck you, lady , but I already did He wasn t as much of an alpha asshole as some of her other heroes His childhood had been tough He felt unworthy of love, I thought Time It had become his enemy There was no time to get bored with this one It seemed to be full on, all the way He stuffed his shirttail into his jeans as though he was furious at it He buttoned up his fly with dispatch, but his belt buckle presented a challenge When he finally managed it, he slapped it lightly into place and turned to face her Why did you lie to me He felt an expanding pressure inside his chest He d never felt anything like it before, so he couldn t put a name on it My review might be a bit vague but I think you are better off going into a SB book without knowing a lot about it When he came, so did she And it was crashing

    Play Dirty is another Sandra Brown winner for me Honestly, I didn t expect to enjoy it as much as I did I read the blurb, pieced a little bit together, and I wondered if this story was going to work for me Well, she did it again SB writes in such a way that she doesn t waste any time sucking you in and then as your turning the pages of each chapter she gives you these teasers that she so strategically strings you along with throughout the book I must say she really has perfected that talent Play Dirty is another Sandra Brown winner for me Honestly, I didn t expect to enjoy it as much as I did I read the blurb, pieced a little bit together, and I wondered if this story was going to work for me Well, she did it again SB writes in such a way that she doesn t waste any time sucking you in and then as your turning the pages of each chapter she gives you these teasers that she so strategically strings you along with throughout the book I must say she really has perfected that talent If you have read my other reviews for her books you know that they are pretty vague I always worry that I am going to give away something that I shouldn t Read through the blurb SB gives you everything and only what you need to know.Griff Burkett had life by the balls But things began to spiral in a direction that left him condemned by the very people that looked up to him and who loved him He had done the unthinkable and was paying the price Laura Speakman had a happy life I guess, but maybe not really A decision was made Something happens And life as she knew it changed Moving on and coping wouldn t be easy What Griff, Laura and her husband Foster agreed to really wasn t an ideal situation for anyone involved but the end goal was beyond worth it for Laura and Foster Griff was really ambiguous about everything Secrecy was easy enough It is the unexpected that would mess with him Things are often not what they seem People aren t always who they appear to be On the outside they appear one way and on the inside they are crumbling.cracking I m not sure if I got my fill of sexy times in this one but what happens between Griff and Laura was different It was sensual It was emotional IMO There were the typical SB twists and turns Things that happen in the last 40% will keep you on your toes There was that asshole character too Stanley Rodarte really got on my nerves Gosh I really hated him I was hoping for one ending but got something different I loved it though Thinking about it now, it really was the perfect way to end it

    It s that time of the year again the SUPER BOWL Play Dirty was my pick for a football book to get ready for the game on Sunday Griff is the former Dallas Cowboy quarterback who has just been released from prison He did 5 years for his dirty playing on the football field He was being paid to throw games We meet Griff on his release day from prison Unfortunately, the city of Dallas has not forgotten how Griff disgraced himself and America s Team Right away the plot takes off because Gri It s that time of the year again the SUPER BOWL Play Dirty was my pick for a football book to get ready for the game on Sunday Griff is the former Dallas Cowboy quarterback who has just been released from prison He did 5 years for his dirty playing on the football field He was being paid to throw games We meet Griff on his release day from prison Unfortunately, the city of Dallas has not forgotten how Griff disgraced himself and America s Team Right away the plot takes off because Griff has been offered a secret business proposal from an affluent couple the Speakmans They own an airline and are highly regarded in the community The business deal Mr Speakman offers Griff is one that will assure that Griff will never have to worry about money again BUT EVERYTHING MUST STAY BETWEEN THE THREE OF THEM If anyone finds out about this deal Griff will no longer collect his yearly million dollars Legally the deal is legit but morally it leaves Griff questioning his self worth At first the money appeals to him but as the task continues he is left feeling used A little over halfway through the story something happens that throws a huge wrench in this secret business deal The suspense picks up and the reader is left wondering if Griff is guilty All the evidence is stacking up against him The author leaves the reader waiting for clues to figure out WHO and WHY they did it Yes, it is resolved at the end of the story Mo has this way with her reviews that after I read them my interest is piqued Since my romance genre reading didn t start until three years ago I ve never heard of most of these established authors until I look to see what Mo s reading Thanks, Mo, for always knowing what book to recommend to me STANDALONE

    I couldn t put this book down I really liked it mostly I think because Griff was such a flawed person I liked that he went bad after having been given such a new start on life with his high school coach So many novels have them all turned around and on the straight and narrow never to stray again I get tired of shiny perfect heros all the time The only thing that bothered me is that he didn t seriously look for a job after getting out of prison He basically talked to one guy about a job I I couldn t put this book down I really liked it mostly I think because Griff was such a flawed person I liked that he went bad after having been given such a new start on life with his high school coach So many novels have them all turned around and on the straight and narrow never to stray again I get tired of shiny perfect heros all the time The only thing that bothered me is that he didn t seriously look for a job after getting out of prison He basically talked to one guy about a job I d have liked it better if he had beat the bushes a bit and tried sooner to straighten himself out and get an honest job But I guess the point was, he was always looking for the easy money Still I do like my flawed characters to grow and learn and he really didn t do that until the very end Still it was a page turner Griff was a wonderfully drawn character and made the entire book I choked up a couple of times
