Monday Book Review: Playing With Her Heart, by Lauren Blakely

Playing with Her Heart, by Lauren Blakely
Published 2013 by Lauren Blakely Books

About the Book:
He's sexy, sophisticated, possessive...and my boss. 
I'm trying to resist him, I swear. I'm good at resisting, and at playing pretend too. It's what I do for a living. But as Davis Milo directs me in my first Broadway play, I'm having a harder time pretending that I don't want him to take me. On the piano. In the limo. In the dressing room. Anywhere and everywhere. And the more he guides me through staged kisses, the more I want them to be real. 
I damn well know the first rule of directing: Never fall for your leading lady. But I'm captivated by her raw talent, and fighting this desire grows harder every day I spend with her. Keeping things professional isn't an option. I want all of her. Soon we're staying late in the empty theatre, our private rehearsals spiraling into new, forbidden territory. I swear I'm not playing with her heart, but how can I be sure that what she feels is real, and not a part of the play?

My Take:

Hot, sexy romance set in New York City's theatre district, between a young Broadway hopeful and the Tony award winning director who sees something irresistible in the younger woman. Lauren Blakely is a New York Times #1 bestselling author, having hit the bestseller listings more than 100 times. She knows her way around contemporary romance.

He said/she said points of view help give the story depth and perspective, especially in this #MeToo era of casting couch accusations.

This is not that. This is a romance and the reader can see both sides of the equation, and how perfect these main characters are for each other, even before they realize it themselves.

Well paced and well written, this is another great story to add to your summer reading list!
