Country boy, Ryder Davis has the world at his feet. A stellar rugby career, a winning way with women and a beach view that keeps him in blue sky and bikini babes. He’s living the dream. The last thing he needs is a Great Dane called Tiny destroying his feng shui.

Dog whisperer, Juliet Morgan is about to start living her dream and she’s counting down the days. In two months she’ll finally be moving to Italy and no man’s going to stop her this time. Not even a rugby superstar with a badly behaved pooch.

But when Ryder skids into the animal shelter looking for help Juliet agrees to assist him with his canine issues. Pretty soon they’re assisting each other out of their clothes and tumbling headlong into a sex thing with an expiry date.

Neither of them expected it to become more. But when for now starts to feel like forever Juliet hits the panic button. Ryder knows he has to play the long game and let her walk away. After all it’s not over until the final hooter sounds and all’s fair in love and rugby.

Sizzling attraction flares the moment their eyes meet for the first time ... and takes us on a wild ride of passionate encounters, tender moments and dreams of somehow there being a happily ever after!” –Thoughts of a Blonde

“This book was fun and sexy, and had humor and heart and a ginormous, perverted Great Dane. Not to mention Ryder, cowboy-slash-rugby player, and Juliet, determined-yet-vulnerable dog whisperer. This book just flowed off the pages and into my heart, making me smile and swoon and, apparently, also making me a wee bit corny...” –Beth C., Goodreads

“This was a fantastic sexy fun read!” –Bette H., Goodreads

“This book was sexy and fun and definitely a great read. I recommend the series!” –Paris H., Goodreads

“There is a lot of sex in PLAYING WITH FOREVER; incandescent, sizzling, jaw-dropping sex, that is fun, joyful and playful. Amy Andrews writes sex scenes as if she invented them!” –Monique D., Goodreads

Amy Andrews... I bow to you. You have written a very insightful and fun tale with this fourth entry of the Sydney Smoke Rugby series. If you have read the other parts, you may have noticed the progression of crafting and heart Andrews has brought to it.

Some plans were meant to be...modified.

I think we can all feel like it's the end of the world when plans go awry. Me, I FREAK when my plans change, just ask hubby. I'm getting a little bit better as I get older but it still makes me scowl and look for the closest person to strangle. Now, I might be ...more

I loved Playing With Forever by Amy Andrews!
From the first few pages I knew this was going to my kind of read. The storyline was entertaining, the writing is well done, and the characters were a hoot to get to know.

Ryder and Juliet were great characters, I loved their honesty, their passion a ...more

This is the third book of Amy Andrews' that I've read, and I've gotta say, I keep coming back to these Sydney Smoke guys because there's just something about them! They're all smokin' hot (pun totally intended!) athletes, they're Australian (got a soft spot set aside for those Aussies!) and while th ...more

By Mindy Lou's Book Review September 22, 2017

It seems rare to find books where the Hero is all in and the heroine is the one resisting. Because of that, I usually enjoy these stories more. I loved that even though Ryder never really saw him self settling down with one woman for long, he recognized that Juliet was different. I loved this quote ...more

By Danielle September 05, 2017

I LOVED rugby star Ryder Davis !! First off..I know NOTHING about rugby. Not a thing. But it is popular in other parts of the world and it looks crazy to play. So. knowing it is a bunch of huge and smoking men who play it has me hooked. And Ryder Davis made me fall in love with him.

He meets Dog whis ...more

Playing with Forever by Amy Andrews is the fourth story in her steamy and fun Sydney Smoke Rugby series. This time it’s Ryder Davis who finds himself falling in love – except the woman of his dreams has dreams of her own that don’t include him.

When Ryder’s friend (and his coach’s daughter) Valerie c ...more

I really enjoyed this 4th book in the series. I liked #1, but loved #2 & #3. I didn't love this quite as much as 2, and 3, but it was still great, sexy fun!

Ryder Davis is a cowboy through and through. He grew up on a farm and only moved to the big city to realize his dreams of playing rugby professi ...more

WOW! Steamy – HOT – Wonderful – A True Delight!

Ryder Davis is a rugby player – but oh so much more! He is a cowboy, a brother, a son, a friend, a people person, dominant on and off the filled and skilled in both arenas, too. He knows what he wants and he wants…

By ⚜️Trea February 17, 2018

It has been a while since I'd read any of the Sydney Smoke series, so I went into this with somewhat fresh eyes. I liked Ryder well enough, but couldn't figure out why Valerie was interfering so much by getting him a dog. I loved Juliet's way with the animals, but really didn't like how adamant she ...more

By Penny September 24, 2017

There is just something fantastic about these Sidney Smoke hunks and the women who steal their hearts. I’ve been waiting to get to see Ryder in action for a very long time, and Playing With Forever didn’t disappoint at all.

His nice-guy, country-boy charm, alphaness in the bedroom (and various other ...more

Playing with Forever is the fourth book in the Sydney Smoke series by Amy Andrews. All of the books feature strong likable heroines, hot professional athletes, and lots of sex-positive messaging. I’m a fan of this series, and it’s entirely possible to start with this book and work your way backwards ...more

By Isha September 21, 2017

The dog is the star and the romance plays a close second in this immensely entertaining, laughably tempting, hard to put down romance. The sports star with the sexy physique and his pick of women is brought down to size by a mischievous pooch and a slip of a woman with big dreams and a talent for do ...more

Saddled with a dog he doesn't want but is conned into keeping for a few weeks, Ryder Davis finds the dog ignores him whenever he gives the dog a command.

How do I pick my next read? An important criterion is the author (that’s a no-brainer), but also the blurb plays a major part, especially with new-for-me authors. Playing with Forever is my first book by Amy Andrews, and the blurb made me curious. A rugby player and a Great Dane called Tiny meet Jul ...more

Ryder Davis was anticipating quiet times to make sure his ankle problem would be taken care of, but that’s when the coach’s daughter rang his doorbell and begs him to take care of a dog for a short while. A gigantic Great Dane. Just for a few days, she said. Tiny is very well-behaved, she said. What ...more

***I received an ARC through Netgalley for an honest review.***
Playing With Forever is about a Rugby player, an adorable dog, and a woman that captures their hearts. Seriously, what's not to love?

I loved how the author described everything. It wasn't overly done but made the story come to life. I co ...more

Humor, set-up, characters, story, and (did I mention?) heat made for an engaging read

Book 4 in the Sydney Smoke Rugby series, though characters do carryover through the series, you don't need to have read the previous books to enjoy this one.

What a hot and fun story this is! I loved Ryder, Juliet and the infamous Tiny! Tiny is the star of this show! He's a ladies man for sure. The dog lends a lot of humor to the story in all the right places.
