Blurb: Country boy, Ryder Davis has the world at his feet. A stellar rugby career, a winning way with women and a beach view that keeps him in blue sky and bikini babes. He’s living the dream. The last thing he needs is a Great Dane called Tiny destroying his feng shui.
Dog whisperer, Juliet Morgan is about to start living her dream and she’s counting down the days. In two months she’ll finally be moving to Italy and no man’s going to stop her this time. Not even a rugby superstar with a badly behaved pooch.
But when Ryder skids into the animal shelter looking for help Juliet agrees to assist him with his canine issues. Pretty soon they’re assisting each other out of their clothes and tumbling headlong into a sex thing with an expiry date.
Neither of them expected it to become more. But when for now starts to feel like forever Juliet hits the panic button. Ryder knows he has to play the long game and let her walk away. After all it’s not over until the final hooter sounds and all’s fair in love and rugby.
SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW
When I’ve thought about what I would say in this review, the first thing that has come to my mind each time is: murgh. Actually it’s more: murrrrrrrrgh, which I think is a result of dying brain cells.
Playing with Forever seemed like it would be right up my alley: hunky country boy turned superstar athlete who acquires a huge dog he can’t handle and must turn to the “dog whisperer” to make the world right.
That’s pretty much the story in a nutshell. Except, the dog whisperer doesn’t know anything about crates or dog dominance or probably even dogs. The superstar athlete can’t seem to see beyond her t&a. Favorite colors come up so I guess that’s something.
This, my friends, is pure lust-mance. Pages and pages of lust-mance in the guise of a novel. It’s well written lust-mance, mind you. If you want to read about two characters who do it everywhere like dumb bunnies, here you go.
This is definitely a “your-mileage-may-vary” since most ratings on Goodreads are 4+. But, if you follow my reviews and tend to like the books I do, please consider the precious hours of your life you’ll never get back.
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
