Sydney Smoke star recruit Kyle Leighton can’t believe the best sex of his life was just a one-night stand. He didn’t even know her name… Until she shows up at the locker room two weeks later and he connects the dots.

Val King. Oh shit.

Coach has one hard and fast rule: Never, ever date (much less f*ck ten ways to Sunday) his daughter. And not only did Kyle break that rule, but he wants to break it over and over again. In the shower. Against a wall. On every flat surface in his home.

But the coach and his daughter share more than just DNA. Their issues run deep and fooling around with her could widen the family chasm.

And get Kyle benched for life.

So why can’t he stop thinking about her? Flirting with her? Suggesting they date for real and damn the consequences?

* Playing By Her Rules
* Playing It Cool
* Playing the Player
* Playing With Forever

Ok, this book made me cry! We've seen throughout this series that Val and Griff (father and daughter) had a strained relationship. When I read what happened...Wow! Just tragic and very sad for all parties involved. Don't get me wrong, I loved Kyle and Val's story. I enjoyed watching them try and wor ...more

The first rule any player for the Sydney Smoke learns is this: Stay away from the coach’s daughter. That’s all well and good for newly-traded hotshot Kyle Leighton. He’s come to be coached by Griffin King and no woman would ever take precedence over rugby. On ...more

I’m just putting it out there I knew NOTHING about rugby when I started reading Amy Andrews’ Sydney Smoke series a few years back and while I still don’t know a ton, I have to say I have enjoyed this series quite a bit, but her latest book in the series, Playing Dirty is my favorite. Maybe it was be ...more

Valerie King is having a pity party for one on her twenty fourth birthday, drinking alone at a bar when Kyle Leighton, the newest signing for the Sydney Smoke, approaches her.

I enjoyed this. This is the sixth book in the Sydney Smoke Rugby series and but each book I’ve read does work as a standalone. Val King, the Smoke’s coach’s daughter, is drowning her sorrows at a local bar while celebrating her twenty fourth birthday, when she meets the newest addition to the team, ...more

One rule, just one. You don't mess with the coaches daughter. Not ever.

This amazing story starts out with Val celebrating her birthday alone drinking, when she meets rugby star Kyle Leighton. They spend an amazing night together, but by morning, she's gone, and he has no idea who she is. Unfortunately for him, it's a couple weeks later when he sees her again, and a bom ...more

By Ofelia July 06, 2018

Another amazing read by Amy Andrews. I really enjoyed reading about Val and Kyle. Val might have hooked up with Kyle in the beginning because she was depressed and also to give her dad a big f*ck you for forgetting her birthday. But what started as a one night stand soon became a lot more especially ...more

By Heather August 06, 2018

Such a great story! Not only do you have a HOT rugby player, amazing SEX scenes but you also have a great story to go with it!

I loved that the author didn't just focus on the obvious main drama in this story: the fact that he slept with his coach's daughter in an incredible one night stand. I appre ...more

This is the sixth book in the series and I enjoyed it just as much as the previous books if not more.

I don't think Val could have done any better than Kyle he was so right for her but they have their ...more

Cute, flirty, and quite the sexy read! I actually loved Val and Kyle’s inta relationship! Things started out quick and dirty, but their undeniable chemistry went to steamy and serious in no time. It was also nice to finally get a strong resolution on Val’s and her Dad, Griff, relationship. ...more

This one seriously had me tearing up...more than once, and for very different reasons! This story is so, so good...and boasts one of the best grovels I've ever seen. Seriously--future romantic leads should take notes. It's THAT good.

Kyle is just so sweet, “I was hot for you the moment I saw you sitting on that barstool all alone, murdering olives with a toothpick.” I mean the man is like a caveman, “my shirt. My icing. My come. Is it wrong to admit how hot it is knowing I’m the one who wrecked you?” Sometimes for his well-being ...more

4.5 stars - I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This book is sexy and fun and dirty in the best possible way. A one night stand between the Smoke’s newest star player and the coach’s daughter causes all sorts of problems when the coach finds out.

Val is the fiesty es ...more

I loved this book. The characters were all a little broken but the author made it work. Kyle and Val were not with each other. Despite being warned he couldn't keep away from her. The subject matter between Val and her father was a bit heavy but. the author handled their story with compassion and un ...more

I'm going to be honest here, I stink at reviews. I'm not too bad at saying why I disliked a book, lol, but why I liked one? Well, that's hard. It's so personal and weird to put yourself out there so much (for me anyway). But I love AAs writing, so I'm gonna try. I loved this book. Ok, how did I do? ...more
