When our two damaged souls came together, something explosive happened.

Something uncontrollable.

Something undeniable.

Our love was intense, irrational, possessive and consuming. We didn't live or love by socities rules. We made our own, living in our own world.

Slaves to our needs.

We were so wrapped up in each other, so blinded by lust, love and obsession, we couldn't se

I know why this series is so appealing to me, it's because he works for her. He works so hard for her, that made my heart melt. She's cold and standoffish at times, but they are unbelievably attracted to one another. And she needs him, even if she tries lying to herself. It's raw, baseline erotica - but there is a depth of feeling there with a fast track relationship, where he wants everything from her. I love his jealousy. His insecurities that drive him crazy. I love that he's not her first in ...more

It's hard to believe that I liked book 1 and 2 but I can't continue after 35 pages of both of them being so insecure and annoying. I would think after getting married they would stop being so insecure but nope they're more insecure now.

How many times did I say insecure?? Lol
Amber- Leave Me Alone I’m Reading
Mehhh.... I wanted to like this series. I really did. I kept reading after not loving the first book, which was my first mistake. These characters are so annoying! Mostly Austin, she is just the worst. David treats her like a queen and she is rotten to him. I was hoping for major character growth but got NONE. Yeah these books are HOT and I didn’t hate them or anything. Austin and David were just too much for me.
This book was so disappointing I couldn’t bring myself to finish it. In my opinion it was SUCH a let down compared to the first two and Austin was just a mega bitch x100000 in this one. I skipped around to the epilogue to see if it was worth wasn’t. I don’t even know what that epilogue was but it was...not good or even remotely sufficient for what this series should’ve been. Very disappointing. Honestly was hoping David would leave Austin for someone that deserved him, not sure wh ...more
Lynn Thinking out loud
I was so hyped when I finally saw this come to my Kindle. First of all I loved the first two books. Sadly this one was a little bit of a let down. It droned on and on. It kept repeating things. I loved the fact this couple was toxic. I loved the fact they had a screwed up relationship. But come on enough was enough. Then to top it all off most of the steamy scenes faded to black. Not cool. Not cool at all.
I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book.

I was so excited to read this book that I devoured and I was not disappointed. Their story and their relationship was very obsessed and had an intensity that was over the top.

The disclaimer was perfect; David was OTT ALPHA MALE and every question that you may have about their past was answered. The author really don’t disappoint and even the story was a little bit slow at the beginning the whole reading was worth it. The relationship was intense, raw and very demanding i

Oh how I missed David Taylor the David lol. Not only is this man a freaken God in the sheets, but he also has a heart of good. He loves feirce, hes protective, he's loyal, and he's possessive of what's his. I have to say all those qualities in a man is freaken hot. Austin on the other tended to pissed me off sometimes. I know her past haunts her but David was only putting her first. So ya there were times I wanted to smack her and say look what you have don't screw it up cause of your insecurity ...more

David Taylor... what can I say. Possessive, Dominant Alpha, Confident, Loving, Sweet, kinda Overbearing and yet everything I want. Between his issues and Austin’s there is a lot that could go wrong between them. And it does at times, nothing about these two is perfect except for the story. They story is perfect. I love reading their struggles and fights because it feels real and fantasy at the same time. This series is so unique to anything I’ve ever read and I don’t think I’ll ever read one lik ...more

I love the Reader advisory. If you don’t like OTT dominant possessive alpha male, this book is not for you.

I have never read a male character this uber alpha before, Davis is OTT as the warning suggest but you should know as this is the third book.

Austin and David are completely crazy obsessed with each other. He’s so possessive and demanding sometimes it drives her nuts but she comes to crave his intense obsessive behaviors. Lots of hot dirty sex, it has been multiplied by 100 in this book.

This was not bad but it's WAY TOO LONG. Half of the book is them winding each other up and being irrationally jealous. Don't get me wrong, their mutual insanity was entertaining but this could easily be 200 pages shorter.

Lots of hate for Austin in the reviews but I didn't feel it. She only annoyed me when the author made her do something silly to move the plot. David was OTT and he tested her feelings too much. Yes, she was a witch at some points but he was always manipulating her so I felt like

"It was filthy. Obscene. And I loved it. I loved everything about my obsessive, possessive man."

David Taylor is BACK y'all! And I couldn't be more excited. You wouldn't think that a stalker would be sexy but let me tell you...he IS. I'm talking top notch sexy. Grant knows what she's doing when it comes to alpha male lead characters. Because let me tell you...there are drool strains on the pages where I was foaming at the mouth.

Fans of Austin and David have waited for the finale in this trilogy for what seems like... well, Forever (yes, pun intended).  But author J.C. Grant definitely poured heart and soul into the final installment and made it worth every day of the wait.  

David's obsession with Austin has grown, by leaps and bounds it seems.  He is so over the top.  Austin loves him and loves the attention, most of the time.  But he can be smothering.  Very, very smothering.  There is no way I could stand this much a

Recommends it for: anyone who loves the OTT alpha!
More like WAITING for forever, amirite? That's what it felt like waiting for this book to come out, but the payoff was worth it, IMO! David is back and he's more OTT than ever.

I'm giving this read a solid 4.5 stars because if you've made it this far (this is the final installment in the Playing For trilogy), you're already familiar with David's insane alpha tendencies and have still decided to continue. Anyone giving this a negative review because of that- this isn't fricking To Kill A Mockingbi
Playing for forever is the third and final book in the playing for series. This book is the continuation of David and Austin’s story. I read this book in one sitting and wasn’t once bored. I really liked this story. In the past, Austin and David’s love has been intense but in this book, the love between them is the most intense it has ever been. I love that Austin craves David’s behaviour. She even goads him at times to get the reaction from him she craves.

I was finally glad to read the conclusion of the story. I think I forgot how insecure both were until this final book. The story line is good. It’s a mind F@$$$ read for a strong woman like me to read. No way in heck would I be able to deal!
I enjoy reading material that I could see happening and honestly this made me feel for folks who just might live the way this story unfolded.

I would read again so it’s a 5 star for me.

God I love these 2! Irrational and possessive to some but to others love and adoration. David and Austin are one of those couples that need each other so much more than others do and it makes them stronger to be together not apart. I absolutely loved this ending to this series and it will go right along with the other 2 as favorite rereads of mine.

Are you fucking serious?
The insecurity and mistrust is too fucking much
This is not healthy at all
I couldn't enjoy the story at all
I was sooooo fucking frustrated throughout the whole thing
They like to just torture each other, they just wanna get even no matter what
They hurt eachother badly
God i wanna fucking smack them so hard
Austin is a piece of shit too.

I’ve been waiting well over a year for this book to come out and it didn’t disappoint! I absolutely loved this series and I’m actually quite gutted that this is the end of it but I can always re-read it if I’m missing David and Austin. Thank you, J.C. Grant ❤️

Great Finish to this series.
I've been waiting not so patiently for Playing For Forever to release. I needed to see how Austin and David story progressed. They've struggled figuring out each other and being open but you can't deny they're made for each other!
Loved the epilogue!!!

(Maybe 3.5 stars)

I’m not exactly sure what I was expecting when I bought this book. Somewhere I kept a hope that this book would surpass my expectations and somehow be able to incorporate all my wishes for a final book, or what I would assume to be the final book. Unfortunately, that was not the case.
Not to say this book was poorly written per say, though there were multiple occasions where a careless mistake tarnished the story, such as grammar and spelling mistakes.

There was so many ups and downs, in their relationship especially when David started back up playing Baseball and Austin started Acting. They were always trying to protect one another, and also tell each other thing, but really all they ever did was hurt and keep things from eachother.
Their relationship as a whole is so toxic in ways, if you look at it, but if you stop ajd see their pasts and everything they do for eachother you realize just how much they need that to help, support, and
