Hi Everyone!  It’s Friday at last and you know what that means…another addition of Fresh Face Friday.  This week I have a great erotic romance that will be sure to steam up your tablets or burn your fingers turning the page.  Kelsie Belle’s Playing for Keeps is a hot little romance that is also emotionally poignant at times.  This story will definitely have you turning through the pages wondering what will happen next.  For my full review be sure to keep reading after the book blurb.  I hope you all have a great weekend!

21493048Book Blurb:

Left broken and bleeding, night club owner and accountant
Cassidy Samson did her best to pick up the pieces of her broken self and move on with her life. She vowed never to let anyone get close to her heart again…until the potent force of a pair of green eyes threatens to bring her to her knees.

Hired as the new guitarist in the band at the Escape Lounge,
Cameron Chase is intrigued and aroused by Cassidy’s tough-as-nails attitude and sets out to barrel through the formidable wall she has constructed around her heart, to get to the real woman behind the façade. He agrees to play by her rules in a reckless game of lust in hopes of finding love.
But will Cam be able to chase away the demons of Cassidy’s past that threaten to consume her? Will his love be strong enough to make her whole again?

Review:

Cassidy is a successful bar owner and is pleased with her life.  She has overcome the past and is running her life the way she wants it without anyone else.  That is until her house band hires a new guitarist, Cameron Chase.  When Cassidy and Cam meet for the first time the vibe is electric and this scares Cassidy.  She is not interested in any kind of relationship or getting closer to any man other than an anonymous roll in the hay.  Unfortunately, the very persistent Cam has other ideas and he won’t let up until Cassidy will let him in.  How long will Cassidy let the past dictate her future and if she can move passed it will Cam still be there to love her?

This was a great little novel.  It had lots of steamy sex scenes that spice up a story that can have very emotional turns.  I really loved Cam.  I think he is definitely a guy that any girl would want chasing her.  Cassidy eventually grew on me but it took time.  It was a bit tiresome the way she continually snapped at people and how her emotions were not controllable.  At times I felt like she was almost too off-putting.  I understand why her character was the way she was but it felt a bit extreme to me.  The story was good and I liked the little bit of intrigue that was thrown in there.  Though it was predictable who the bad guy was.  Overall, I think it was an enjoyable read and would recommend it to anyone look for a some spice and a good story.
