Playing for a night…or for keeps?

When family troubles bring her to Las Vegas and face-to-face with the man who knows all her darkest desires, resisting temptation is futile. A night of no-holds-barred sin? Jackpot.

Props for being all about pro-women

women are awesome

Initially, I was worried. Heroine was having plenty of self-doubt coming face to face with an old flame who was all alpha - but good alpha so slow your roll! But then she settles into herself and who she is and what she wants and it turns out, she's the one with some serious control. Alpha hero actually has feelings and self-doubt and desires. Hurrah!

Good, quick, super steamy read. If you want erotica, this is what it should be - there was a story for all this

I read this book for the Unapologetic Romance Readers' New Years 2017 Reading Challenge. For more info about what this is, click here.

I've heard a lot about Alisha Rai but I've never actually read any of her work before PLAY WITH ME. Whoo, now I'm starting to think I should correct that...because this book is hot!

Tatiana and Wyatt were teenage lovers. Then they had a bad split. Now, Tatiana is about to contact Wyatt again for the first tim

Feels like pretty much everything I am reading these days is either erotica, feminist stuff, manga or an amalgamation of the former two. I generally tend to skim most of the erotica because sex (the way it's written) bores me but holy fucking Beelzebub in a bra, this one got me all

This scene summarizes the romance quite well in this book:

Before she could marshal her thoughts to answer, he slapped her nipple again.
She cried out, and he paused. “Hurt?”

Wyatt returned to working the nipples with his fingers, both soothing and inflaming the sting. “Too much?”

She narrowed her eyes at him. “Shut up and spank my tits, Caine.”

Ha! I love this heroine. Tatiana and Wyatt were high school sweethearts. Well, sweetheart might be too tame a term. These two dated for years, and expe

HOT! Rai writes the heroes I like. It is completely possible to write a dominant Alpha male who isnt a crazed psycho and Rai does just that. Gimme more!

Ooh, baby. Alisha Rai writes some sexy stuff, man. SEX-AY STUFF! Complete with cheesecake. And domination games. And former lovers reunited. WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE?

*ahem* Right. So, Tatiana and Wyatt have a history. A long, tangled history where they went their separate ways but never forgot one another. Tatiana's reappearance in Wyatt's life is ... complicated. She's there for a reason. He *might* have a secret or two that could jeopardize the potential for more of a relationship.

Oh, and they have

DNF at 15%. (Attempted to read Nov 2016)

I never warmed up to Wyatt and couldn't stop eyerolling at Tatiana's self-doubt. Even the fact that it's only 118 pages long wasn't enough to continue reading it. :|

First time reading this author (whose name has popped up plenty on bookish Twitter.) I'm not impressed with her prose. That said, I'm looking forward to reading Be My Fantasy at some point in the future.

and I think I'm dehydrated now...
Pretty good read, might consider reading the rest in the series.

Tatiana heads to Vegas to meet with Wyatt in hopes of convincing him to drop the charges against her brother. Wyatt doesn't know that she's on her way there to try to convince him so she's hoping that she'll get the upper hand. Armed with proof of their previous relationship/love, she's hoping that he'll have gone 'soft' or not be as delish as he once was.

Wyatt knows that the kid he just busted for embezzling money from him is Tatia

Tatiana and Wyatt were crazy about each other as teenagers, they were perfect for each other and loved to experiment together in the bedroom but they came from very different backgrounds and that eventually pulled them apart. Ten years later a chance encounter throws them back together, they've both changed a lot since they last saw each other but neither of them ever forgot their first love and the attraction they feel towards each other hasn't dulled. What is supposed to be a night of hot sex ...more
3.5 for me. Whole story takes place in two days, but I felt like I knew Tatiana and Wyatte. Tatiana's newly discovered brother, embezzeled money from her ex-boyfriend, Wyatte, and she came to Las Vegas to fix the problem. Tatiana and Wyatte had a relatioship 7 years ago, and they never got over each other so the chemistry was palpable from the get go. Deeper feelings develop as they have sex through the book. I wanted more communication between Tatiana and Wyatte, there was a lot of internal mon ...more
Sex scenes are hot! From the moment Wyatt and Tatiana reconnected they've had that explosive chemistry and hot office sex to start the book. Not a lot of drama/plot to this story, just old flames reconnecting and learning more about each other now that they're adults. Lots of hot dirty sex! I do wonder if the bdsm aspect of their lives will get more intense as to what's been done so far in the first book. Looking forward to reading more about them.

I love Alisha Rai. Read with wine, preferably on a Friday night.

Serials are going to be the death of me, but this was ridiculously hot. Alisha Rai is a master. I will read anything she writes.

If I had reviewed this closer to when I finished it, I would have more to say than I thought it was hot, but I didn't and I don't. But it was hot.
Play With Me was a quick, sexy, and surprisingly sweet read. Tatiana and Wyatt dated for several years as teens and young adults. Now, they're being reunited after ten years. Tatiana's brother stole from Wyatt, and she's there to plead his case and pay off his debts. But Wyatt doesn't want her money. He wants her. For one night. The chemistry is still there from when they were younger, and it seems to be even stronger now. It also becomes quickly apparent that those two don't do vanilla. Their o ...more

I enjoyed this short romance novel! While I'm not really into this particular kink (that's totally on me), I liked the way it was written - there was clear consent and a great back and forth between the hero/heroine. Their past relationship (they had dated in high school/college and were each other's firsts) really helped the heightened and deep emotions feel authentic. I will definitely read the other books in this series!

MinnChica: I adore Alisha Rai’s writing style, so when I saw the blurb and read an excerpt from this book, I was super excited. I love my BDSM-esque books, and Tatiana and Wyatt have some super hot and kinky love scenes. Rai did everything so wonderfully in this book, my only negative reaction was the length, especially given the fact this is going to be a trilogy. I am not a big fan of the new trend in romance where a

This novella was flat-out dirty fun. As high school and college sweethearts, Tatiana and Wyatt explored everything together and learned to embrace their kinks. Now after 10 years apart, they still know what they want and how to give it to each other. Play With Me was pure sexual tension from the first sentence and it only got hotter from there. I loved both characters. It was refreshing to read about two adults who are happy with who they are. What they want isn’t wrong and they don’t w

I usually like this author, but this book was short and - meh. It was a fun premise, and there were a couple of good scenes - Rai writes well - but there wasn't any real intensity in the characters or drive in the plot.

3.5 Stars

A very good start to a very promising, sexy, new erotic romance series.

good erotic novella. I liked the chemistry between the two. sex was hot and often and unique. :)

Play With Me is really only a book for romance lovers. There are romance or adult fiction books I 100% recommend to everyone but this is one that only people who truly enjoy this genre will like. Reason being it's pretty much only romance and sex. There is little plot and the little it has is nothing to write home about. Does this make the book bad? No. It just means it's a book in a sea of book and people who enjoy romance will be the ones most likely to get a kick out of it. I read many ge
Pretty good book. The H and h use to date in the past, broke up, years later meet again. This book is pretty much based on the day they meet again. Her newly found brother (she was adopted and just found she had a brpther) embezzled money from the H and the h goes to his casino that he owns to make a deal with him for her brother. They work it out. Then they have one night together. The sex is Hot, a lot of bdsm dom sub stuff as well as role play and Idk what it's called but when they use harsh ...more

Okay, this book is about a reconnection of two exes, who decide that they want to spend one more night together. The idea sounds pretty innocuous however, they were dirty birds. And it was not for me, not my thing. It was a bit too rough for me, but to be fair, the kind of stuff they were about just isn't my thing. I did however like that they were still loving towards each other even though they'd been broken up for years.
So that's it, Alisha Rai's books are good, this particular story just was
Pretty solid kinky smut. I don't really have any complaints - there were no overtly problematic elements that creeped me out or anything - but there's also not enough of depth to raise this above a solid 3 stars. It was pure entertainment, and even though the character's played around with power dynamics the characters came across as equals in their relationship and consent was handled well. There are for sure some worn-out tropes in this, but not in a way I minded - I got exactly what I signed ...more

This story is very, very short so there's nothing much going on plot-wise. I would have loved to see this more developed (going more in-depth into their past, and keep the last part going for a few more pages, at least).

The somewhat low rating is mostly because of current mood, because otherwise this book (?) has been great. If anyone's in search of a fast and fun erotica, this is literally it.
