Review & Giveaway Tour: Playing for Keeps by Jill Shalvis

If you’re planning on falling in love…

When it comes to the confident, charismatic Caleb Parker, Sadie Lane feels the spark—the kind that comes from rubbing each other the wrong way. She’s yoga pants, he’s a suit. She’s a tattoo artist, he’s a straight-laced mogul. But after they accidentally co-rescue an abandoned dog from a storm, Sadie sees a vulnerable side to the seemingly invincible hottie.

You’d better be sure…

Caleb doesn’t do emotions. Growing up the underdog, he’s learned the hard way to build up an impenetrable wall. Perfect for business. Disastrous for relationships. He’s never worried about it before—not until he finally gets behind Sadie’s armor and begins to fall.

Someone is there to catch you.

Both guarded and vulnerable, Sadie and Caleb are complete opposites. Or are they? Shocked at their undeniable connection, can they ever admit to wanting more? That all depends on what they’re each willing to risk.

Oh boy...

I'm pretty great at this reviewing stuff aren't I? Everyone wants to read a review that starts out with the sentence, oh boy! I just couldn't help myself, it's says so much about what I felt about this book. Let me explain.

So, first off I just love the characters of this series. So much fun. I don't remember meeting Sadie before this book. We could have but it's been awhile since the last book I read in this series so...

On the other hand we have met and loved Caleb. He is such a great guy. I also love his nosy ass sisters too, even when you want to say to them, ENOUGH! Caleb is the type of guy you'd love to have in your life. Yes he has some issues but none of them are really a negative.

Now Sadie on the other hand has so really big issues. But after reading it all I'm not sure they are all of her making. Intrigued aren't you? You'll understand when you read the book. I really felt for her and because of that I gave her a pass a few times.

Together these two work, even if you aren't sure how. I loved their journey to love, every rock moment of it. Of course that's a ton of laughter too.

If you haven't yet read a book by Jill Shalvis you are really missing out. She's the type of author that drags you into a story and makes you part of it. I really can't wait for the next book in this series!
