I’m Payton Blake. A successful, balanced twenty-something living the dream.
OK. So it’s a big, shiny-ass lie.I could be all of those things. If I had friends outside of work. And if I didn’t mainline watermelon slushies like they were a food group. It wouldn’t hurt if I’d had sex in the last year, either. (My best friend insists Jorge the Nightstand Boyfriend doesn’t count.)
But when you know where you’re headed, who needs to enjoy the ride? Even if part of me longed for a little between-the-sheets adventure, Max Donovan would be the last guy I’d call.Sure, he made the indie video game that broke the internet. His eyebrow piercing’s sexy, in an ‘are-you-in-a-band?’ kind of way, and fighting with him gets me off faster than Jorge on bezerker mode. But he’s arrogant. Presumptuous. Colder than a cactus and twice as prickly. And I’m not talking about his face, because the guy’s barely old enough to shave.None of it changes the fact that I crave Max Donovan like a watermelon slushy on a hot summer day.
I should ignore him. But I can’t, because he just became my biggest client. And whether he’ll admit it or not, he needs me even more than I need him.So what happens when the girl who lives to work goes head-to-head with the guy who was born to PLAY?Game on, Max Donovan.PLAY is a sassy standalone romantic comedy about life, love, and video games. For 18+ due to language and Kindle-incinerating steamy scenes.

I love reading and writing about sassy, sexy, smart women and the guys who fall hard for them. Schooled is the introduction to my Travesty series about ambitious girls who chase their dreams of a fashion label from California to New York and back again.
My main household expenditures include books, coffee and chocolate, not necessarily in that order. Coffee = life (and I’ll defend it accordingly). I have two business degrees, neither of which I’ve leveraged into a fashion label.
Home is Canada plus occasional sunny winter escapes. Come find me on the tennis court, at the beach, on the web at www.piperlawsonbooks.com or on twitter @piperjlawson.
I love a good story that gives us characters who start to feel like we have been friends for a long time. Piper Lawson gives us Payton and Max. The dynamic between this pair starts out innocently enough but warms you like a wildfire that has no chance of being put out. Payton’s life set her up to build walls that no man should have ever conquered but Max….oh, Max. Like many marriages, Max watched his parent’s love life crumble piece by piece and when all was said and done, he no longer believed in love. He puts on a mask that emits a persona of a rough image and a cold heart. As he spends more time with Payton, Max begins to lower his walls along with hers but each having a painful past, they struggle to commit. The banter laced with sarcasm and an undiscovered passion set the scene for the pair to have a hot and steamy romance! They each have one true friend who helps keep them grounded and offers a humorous side to the story. Even with the undeniable attraction, can Max and Payton find the courage to level up in the game they’re playing? I can’t reveal if the pair ends up slaying the game and earning a gold trophy or if they end with a ‘Game Over’….you’ll have to grab it up to read for yourself!
