A quick and fun read that gave me an hour to escape life and just enjoy Rene’s great writing. A spinoff from the Playing Games Series, this novella follows Samantha and the aftermath of her missing pup.

From the moment I started reading Sam’s story I knew it was going to be fun. I wanted that happy ending without all of the chaos a full novel brings. Not that I don’t want a full novel, because I do. This was a fun read that gives you a glimpse into all of the characters in this series. If you hav

Once again Author Rene Folsom brings the heat with this spin-off of what has to be my favorite series by her, Playing Games.

I've loved the Playing Games series, so I was excited to read a story about Maci's editor, Sam. Rene, as always, did not disappoint. Each time I read one of her novellas, I'm impressed at how well she fleshes out characters and makes me want more of them. This was no exception. I'm itching for more of Sam and Cal, whose story is a fun little twist on the idea of 'second chances'. Add the adorable puppy to the mix, and I was sold. Lest you worry that this story feels incomplete, don't; as with al ...more

LOVED this novella You do not need to have read the Playing Games series (though I highly recommend you do so, as it’s a great series) to read this novella. Would love for Sam and Cal to have their own full length novel
