PLAY FAIR . . . OR PLAY TO WIN?
Falling in love with polar-opposite men was an intoxicating ride that nearly ended Sage Reese's life. Now it's time for Sage to decide: Parker, the clean-cut, filthy-rich business magnate . . . or Ryker, the tough-as-nails undercover detective. Her choice? Neither. Because she can't stand the thought of coming between two brothers-in-arms finally trying to repair their friendship.
Yet not everyone feels the same way, including a mysterious woman who's come to Ryker and Parker for help. Sage knows firsthand how hard it is for the two former Marines to resist a damsel in distress. But something just doesn't feel right.
Now there's a danger closing in that only Sage can see, and she intends to do everything she can to protect Parker and Ryker-even at the risk of losing them both . . .
Play To Win
You must read Power Play and Playing Dirty BEFORE you read Play to win!
So, this book picks up where Playing Dirty left off: Sage torn between Ryker and Parker. I have always been #TeamRyker but these books are all about the back and forth! I am NOT a fan of love triangles. Its probably my least favorite trope. But, I like Tiffany Snow so I thought I would give it a try. I really enjoyed book 1; Book 2 was okay for me. Playing to Win was meh. I’m glad its over, and I know who she ends up with; other than that, I did a LOT of skimming. I think this series could have been 2 books. There was too much back and forth and extra drama that just got tedious after awhile. Playing to Win introduced a new character who really forces Sage’s hand in terms of her ‘choice’. I’m not a fan of that either because I feel that having the choice made for Sage takes out the idea of who she really LOVED more. But, again, after I have invested in books 1 and 2, I wanted to know how it ended damn it!

Necessary Risk by Tara Wyatt, The Cornerstone by Kate Canterbary, then you will probably like Playing to Win!
A native of St. Louis, Missouri, Tiffany Snow earned degrees in Education and History from the University of Missouri-Columbia, before launching a career in Information Technology. After over a decade in IT, she switched careers to what she always dreamed of doing – writing. Tiffany is the author of romantic suspense novels such as the Kathleen Turner Series, which includes No Turning Back, Turn to Me and Turning Point. Since she’s drawn to character-driven books herself, that’s what she loves to write, and the guy always gets his girl. She feeds her love of books with avid reading, yet she manages to spare time and considerable affection for trivia, eighties hair bands, the St. Louis Cardinals, and Elvis. She and her husband have two daughters and one dog.
I asked Tiffany what her favorite jobs were for our book heroes! I must say, I love her choices:
- Assassin (Ok, how freaking awesome does this sound!? I need a book with an assassin hero!)
- Hacker (I love this one too!)
