****4 stars****

First, I want to thank the author, Ms. Kenya Wright for contacting me on Goodreads and asking me to read and review her book, Theirs to Play. When I first read the blurb, I was intrigued and also a little hesitant since it involved two brothers vying the attention of one woman. I usually avoid love triangles because my emotions can never take it and usually the characters that I root for ends up not getting the girl but this was not the case. As for in Theirs to Play, I was surprised on how much I really enjoyed reading this book and it reminded me of the movie, Cruel Intentions. From the prologue to the very last page, this book kept me entertained and left me wanting for Theirs To Crave (book 2).


Frederick and Max are European brothers who live a life of leisure and luxury. They are gorgeous, rich and can have any woman they want. With a billionaire father, they don't have to work but just travel the world, spend money left and right, and have any women at their disposal. So what do two rich brothers do to keep themselves entertained? Well, they make wagers and choose a woman they both would seduce and see who would get her to fall in love with them first and sleep with. In other words,they don't care of the many hearts they hurt since its all a game for them since they have nothing better to do.


When Frederick and Max docks their yacht in Miami, their eyes caught the attention of Dawn,an Irish-Puerto Rican,who is a first year law student. For Max, he gets his thrill with gambling while Frederick gets his thrill in this game of seduction and chase. Well the game got interesting for Max when he ups the ante and makes a wager with his older brother on who can bed Dawn first. For Frederick, he is attracted to Dawn and is drawn to her sexual charisma and personality. As for Dawn, this is not her first time being seduced and courted by a wealthy man so she knows from the get go what these two brothers are trying to do. Dawn can only be described as sassy, intelligent, sexy, captivating, and insightful. She is one strong heroine who knows how to play the game. She sees what Max and Frederick are trying to do and decides to play along knowing she can't fall for their charms.


Well with two men vying for her attention, Dawn is one strong heroine which I absolutely adored about her. She was never the damsel in distress and knew her score when it came to the game Max and Freddy were playing. She saw through the facade each brother had. Never meeting a woman who challenged them so much, both brothers couldn't help falling for her beauty and charm especially Freddy. At the end of in Theirs to Play, the triangle and has now become a square when her ex-boyfriend comes back into the picture at the end of the book.


Overall, I enjoyed reading this book and finished it one sitting. I enjoyed the alternating POVs of Dawn, Frederick and Max. It gave readers a greater insight on the different personalities of each the main characters. The only thing I have to complain about this book is that it ends with a cliffhanger.
