His best friend's little sister is all grown up … and ready to play in a whole new way.

Smith Hamilton has it all—he's smart, good-looking and loaded. But he remembers a time when he had nothing and no one, so he's not about to mess up, especially with his best friend’s little sister. That means keeping Evie at arm's length … even though the once pesky little girl is now a buxom bombshell. A sexy blonde who pushes his self-control to the limit the night she crawls into bed with him.

Evie Reed knows she's blessed—with an exclusive education, a family who loves her, and a new job managing social media for her family's lingerie company. But she wants more, like a reason to wear the sexy lingerie herself. She has just the man in mind to help with that. She's crushed on Smith forever. Surely tricking her way into his bed will force him to see her in a new, adult way.

Except that when Evie's plan leads to disaster, she and Smith must decide—ignore the attraction sizzling between them, or become play mates and risk it all.

Can I just say that Kendall Ryan could write the phone book and I would read it! I’m blown away every time I read one of her flirty and romantic love stories. You might not know that I’ve only recently discovered Ms. Ryan’s AWESOMENESS and I have been a HUGE fan ever since. She creates such amazingly colorful characters who make us laugh, cry, and swoon. They are always uber sexy with a nice dose of sweet. It’s the PERFECT combination to giving us an all-around fun and entertaining love story.

“I didn’t know I was starving until I’d tasted her.”

Falling in love with your older brother’s best friend can be messy, but Evie Reed does it with class and sass. I absolutely ADORED Smith and Evie together. Their slow-burn romance had me on the edge of my seat, yearning for more. THE PLAY MATE is such an accurate title to this story. It’s playful, flirty, passionate, and sexy. Add it a dash of hilarity, and you got yourself a WINNING romance!

“What do you want?”


“That’s a dangerous thing to say to a man.”

Oh, Smith Hamilton was just scrumptious! He is an all-around GREAT guy who doesn’t want to lose a part of his family, but he also can’t stay away from Evie, once he’s had a taste. The attraction is killer. The sex is OFF THE CHARTS. The romance was bursting off of every single page. Kendall Ryan’s stories always leave me with a HUGE smile on my face and such a great feeling of contentment. I love her characters. I love her writing. I love that she brings her A-Game every single time. Another absolute must-read from the amazing Ms. Ryan.
