Playing for Keeps (Heartbreaker Bay #7) 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.

4.5 out of 5 stars

This story was so freaking adorable and fun. Sadie and Caleb's banter was priceless. Throw a cute dog and fun antics into the mix and it was pretty perfect. Playing for Keeps was an entertaining read that was heartfelt and real, from the sweet to the heat I was all in!

Sadie and Caleb totally did it for me. I loved learning their histories and seeing their interactions. They were like fire and ice and I loved their playful bickering, it was so fun! There were just so many fun scenes happening as everything unfolded, I couldn't get enough. They both have issues they're working through and I love how the author delved into those and shared something serious in a very understanding way.

The writing was pure Jill Shalvis and it was awesome. She's got an inviting way of telling a story that really gets you invested into the characters lives, making you want to be friends with them. There were wonderful descriptions and a great build as everything unfolded. It’s was a great read with the perfect amount of emotion, tension and mild drama mixed in.

This was a super fun read that made for a fantastic addition to the Heartbreaker Bay series! I highly recommend it.
