Book Notes: Playing Dirty by Susan Andersen

Playing Dirty (Hqn)"When old enemies are thrown together, all bets are off…
Way back in high school, golden boy Cade Gallari publicly revealed he'd slept with "fat girl" Ava Spencer to win a bet. Now a decade older and a head turner with her own concierge business, Ava isn't the gullible dreamer she once was— and she plans to prove it when Cade, hotter than ever, breezes back into town with an offer she can't refuse.
A documentary film producer, Cade is shooting a movie about the mysterious mansion Ava inherited. And he wants her as his personal concierge. She's certainly professional enough to be at his beck and call without giving him everything he wants. Like another shot at having her in his bed. But Ava doesn't count on Cade's determination. Because he's never gotten over her— and he's not above playing dirty to score a second chance at a red–hot future…"

Okay, yes, I have a guilty pleasure for fun little *cough*kinda slutty*cough* love stories. I read this during the read-a-thon this past month. The book was definitely different from what I thought it would be. I was hoping the book talked about the dilemma of them meeting again after years, but this book didn't do that. Though it was a fun read, there wasn't much a build-up to the relationship. A lot of the intimate scenes seemed to come out of nowhere. I would read scenes and be confused as to where the relationship leading to moments went. It became distracting and really took away from the story. Though the characters were likable, they could've used more development to get a better feel for who they were. There also wasn't much of a dilemma as the description hints to, so it began to drag the story.

An aspect I did enjoy about the book though, was that the main character being full-figured and learning to love who she was after years of fighting with it. She had a good sense of who she was before she met her love interest and it was refreshing to read about a character who doesn't really need that approval. I don't think I'd recommend this book to anyone, but for a fun, non-commitment read, it was a great choice.

:O Naughty book.

The "full-figured" aspect is kind of intriguing though.
