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.
The Play Mate was funny, sexy and perfect afternoon read. From the get go you just know that things are going to be interesting to say the very least and they were. Once I started reading I couldn’t and didn’t want to put it down for any reason at all.
I can only imagine someone planning out what Evie did and thinking it would go off without a hitch. If it was for someone like Smith though I think I may have schemed to get into his bed as well. Now I have to admit at first for me Evie came across as a character that I thought I would really hate but that quickly went away once I got to know her character more. Smith didn’t want to want his best friend’s little sister, but once certain events occur he can’t not want her. I loved his character from the start, I was instantly drawn in and wanted to know more about who Smith really was.
The Play Mate is a standalone and one I really loved. Kendall Ryan has another winner on her hands with this one and I highly recommend The Play Mate to anyone looking for a great book to read because you will find it in this one.
