Book Review ~ Play Me #3: Play Me Hard by Tracy Wolff

Play Me Hard
(Play Me #3)
by Tracy Wolff

Expected publication: December 2nd 2014 by Loveswept

No one ever said love is easy. In the third installment of an eBook original serial from the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, Aria and Sebastian discover that building trust might be harder than they ever imagined.

My name is Aria Winston. I’ve fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I’m on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.

Ever since taking Aria under his wing and into his seductive domain, Sebastian hasn’t been able to think straight. Their chemistry is intoxicating. Their power exchange is exhilarating. And the sex leaves them both absolutely exhausted. But if there’s one thing Sebastian does know, it’s that he needs to protect this strong yet vulnerable woman. Because she has depths that are unknown—even to her. Aria has worked hard to establish herself as anything but submissive. That isn’t who she is, or who she wants to be. So why does it feel so sweet to give up control . . . and so intense when Sebastian takes care of needs she doesn’t even realize she has? But he has needs of his own—and secrets that run just as dark and deep as Aria’s.

Play Me is an erotic serial intended for mature audiences. Aria and Sebastian’s story continues in Play Me: Real.

My Thoughts
In Part 3 of Play Me, Ms. Wolff dangles the carrot a little closer and gives the reader a few more clues about Sebastian and Aria’s past, but still leaves us once again with a HUGE, jaw-dropping cliffhanger without any resolution. 

So many freaking secrets!  So much hot and steamy sex!  And so much mystery and intrigue!  But most of all, so much frustration over this amazing serial!  Why the frustration you ask?  Well, because this reader NEEDS to know details, and I’m not getting very many! Yes, we get snippets, but very few, which creates so many possibilities in how this story will end. 

I really am falling in love with Sebastian as he seems to be caring and kind, and an EXCEPTIONAL lover! 

I still don’t know what to think about Aria.  We get a few more details about her past and her family, but really nothing concrete.

I really am enjoying this serial and can’t wait to keep reading on to find out the answers I so desperately need.

About the Author
Tracy Wolff collects books, English degrees and lipsticks and has been known to forget where—and sometimes who—she is when immersed in a great novel. At six she wrote her first short story—something with a rainbow and a prince—and at seven she forayed into the wonderful world of girls lit with her first Judy Blume novel. By ten she’d read everything in the young adult and classics sections of her local bookstore, so in desperation her mom started her on romance novels. And from the first page of the first book, Tracy knew she’d found her life-long love. Now an English professor at her local community college, she writes romances that run the gamut from contemporary to paranormal to erotic suspense.

And for all of those who want the unedited version:
Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.
