Review and Giveaway: Playing for Keeps by Jill Shalvis

If you’re planning on falling in love… 

When it comes to the confident, charismatic Caleb Parker, Sadie Lane feels the spark—the kind that comes from rubbing each other the wrong way. She’s a tattoo artist, he’s a straight-laced mogul. But after they accidentally co-rescue an abandoned dog from a storm, Sadie sees a vulnerable side to the seemingly invincible hottie.

you’d better be sure… 

Caleb doesn’t do emotions. Growing up the underdog, he’s learned the hard way to build up an impenetrable wall. Perfect for business. Disastrous for relationships. He’s never worried about it before—not until he finally gets behind Sadie’s armor and begins to fall.

… someone is there to catch you. 

Both guarded and vulnerable, Sadie and Caleb are complete opposites. Or are they? Shocked at their undeniable connection, can they ever admit to wanting more? That all depends on what they’re each willing to risk.


Laura's Review: 

Another consistently good book from Ms. Shalvis. I LOVE the heartbreaker bay books - it might be my favorite series of hers so far. This one upheld her standard of writing feel-good, heartwarming stories, but was probably my least favorite of this series. Caleb was wonderful - a completely swoonworthy hero who might just be a little too perfect; which balanced out Sadie who really isn't all that likable as a character - and her questioning of their relationship over and over again was valid, because the reader likely will, too. Add in some VERY overbearing sisters that Caleb should have fired from his company and possibly kicked out of his life, and this was a bit more of a tough sell for me. But, I still enjoyed it and look forward to the next one Ms. Shalvis has to offer! 3.5/5 stars.
