C. L. Parker is a romance author who writes stories that sizzle. She's a small-town girl with big-city dreams and enough tenacity to see them come to fruition. Having been the outgoing sort for all her life--which translates to "she just wouldn't shut the hell up"--it's no wonder Parker eventually turned to writing as a way to let her voice, and those of the people living inside her head, be heard. She loves hard, laughs until it hurts, and lives like there's no tomorrow. In her world, everything truly does happen for a reason.
Review: Wow, Playing Dirty really is the classic love/hate relationship story! Shaw and Cassidy begin with the absolute need to win the new client, which spirals a whole load of nasty, sexy and steamy games. Then, complications arise, namely feelings and the plot takes on a whole new spin. This book is exciting, addictive and leaves the reader wanting more!
