PLAYING WITH HER HEART Synopsis:
When you’re acting the role of a lifetime, how can you know if love is real—or all just a part of the show?
Twenty-three year old rising theatre star Jill McCormick has built a life out of pretending. Pretending she’s happy, pretending her long-distance crushes add up to something real, pretending she’s not haunted by the dark secret that shattered her world six years ago. Cast in her first Broadway show, she desperately needs to keep her façade intact, but that’s before she comes face to face with her devastating new boss…
Hot-shot director Davis Milo knows the first rule of directing: never fall for your leading lady. Captivated by Jill’s raw talent, he fights his feelings, but watching Jill on-stage with another man is more than his jealous streak can take. Keeping things professional isn’t an option. He wants all of her.
Soon the ingénue and her director are staying late in the empty theatre, their private rehearsals spiraling into new, forbidden territory. Caught up between fiction and reality, Jill struggles to find the truth in all their staged kisses. But how can she be sure that what she feels is real, and not a part of the play? And when two people spend their lives pretending, what happens after the final curtain falls?

What I thought
It’s no secret that I am a huge Lauren Blakely fan. I have read all of her books to date and after Trophy Husband I really didn’t think she could get any better. But no, Lauren has out done herself again. As I said back then I fell a little bit in love with Chris but OMG Davis Milo is something else!
There is nothing quite like a man that has to battle with himself to stop from breaking the rules. Especially when he was the one who set them in the first place. He set them for a reason, they were there to protect him – self preservation. Jill McCormick isn’t averse to a bit of self preservation herself. Her social life and love life were all pretend. Doing what she does best – act – she has led everyone to believe that she is happy. They even think she has a love life. And she does. Pity its all in her head. She has the perfect relationship with the man she’s in love with in her head and now she is performing with him in a Broadway play.
So what happends when Davis Milo breaks his own rules and falls in love with the girl who thinks she is in love with her co star? Worse still he has to work so closely day in and day out as he directs them both on stage.
There is nothing easier to fall into than a Lauren Blakely Book. Playing With Her Heart is no exception and similarly her characters are also hard not to fall in love with. Playing With Her Heart took me less than a day to read, and it made sure to help me do those pelvic floor exercises 😉
Hot is one word to describe this book, fantabulous is another. It was Fantabulously HOT. The only problem – as usual, is waiting around for the next one! Get cracking!
