When Raina Beck is given an invitation to The Players Club, all she wants is a night of decadence with a gorgeous, sexy stranger. The seductive, mysterious man she meets fulfills her deepest desires and most erotic fantasies, giving her a night she’ll never forget. But forgetting him isn’t quite so easy.
Logan Cruz prefers his women submissive and compliant in the bedroom . . . everything the independent Raina is not. Yet from the first moment he lays eyes on her, he’s determined to make Raina his. Despite her resistance.

When Logan is assigned to protect Raina from a stalker, everything between them changes. Sex becomes more than just physical, and emotions run deep. Falling in love was never on Raina’s agenda, but can she let go of the past and surrender the one thing he wants the most . . . her heart?

   My Review

     Raina Beck, a sassy and confident woman, meets Logan Cruz, former military turned sexy, dominant bodyguard at The Player's Club one night where they share a sizzling hot encounter. Raina goes her separate ways thinking that she'll never see Logan again, but that changes when she discovers she has a stalker.
     Logan, a man not used to chasing after women, chased Raina, but when she got away he never thought he would see her again. Until he walks in to a meeting to find that he has been assigned to protect her.
      Raina and Logan begin a sexy, steamy affair meant to last the duration of Logan's assignment, but while Logan finds himself falling for Raina, Raina finds herself giving in to reminders of the past and the feeling of not being worthy enough for Logan.
     Logan and Raina's characters are well developed and thought out. I loved Raina's personality, her tight knit group of friends, and of course her occupation and how she felt no shame for what she did for a living (You go girl!). As for Logan, he is a man who will have you begging for more with his dirty talk, good looks, kink, and his all around manliness. Plus, who can resist a former military man turned bodyguard. That man could guard my body any day!

     I loved the concept and plot of the story, but felt that the stalker aspect could have been more well developed and suspenseful. Almost from the beginning readers know who the stalker is so the stalker and there is not much stalker behavior at all so this storyline is more like background music than anything else.
     With that being said, Playing with Temptations is hot, sensual, and will have your body on fire as you read so I definitely do recommend this one to readers who enjoy dirty-talking alphas ;)
