In the seductive first installment of an eBook original serial from the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, a woman running from her past has finally found a bit of control . . . until her powerful new boss makes her go wild.
My name is Aria Winston. I’ve fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I’m on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.
Working as a cocktail waitress at one of Vegas’s hottest five-star casinos means putting up with a ton of bad behavior from the big spenders. But it pays the bills—and that’s all that matters to Aria, who needs every last dollar to escape from her father’s destructive grasp and the brutal man he expects her to marry. But when she lashes out against a billionaire who won’t take no for an answer, she nearly loses everything—until Sebastian steps in. The owner’s son and handpicked successor, Sebastian is dark, sexy, and kinder than any rich man should be. And when he apologizes and offers to keep her job safe, Aria can’t help the way her body reacts to his. Suddenly her job, and the security it brings her, isn’t the only thing Aria wants.
Play Me is intended for mature audiences. Aria and Sebastian’s story continues in Play Me: Hot.

“Hot is not the right word to describe this book. It was blazing! . . . I am hooked on the Play Me series. I can’t wait to see where this story is going to lead.”—Smut Book Junkie Book Reviews
“This whole Play Me series totally got to me. The characters were believable, the sexual tension and their chemistry was amazing, and the overall story and plot was compelling.”—(un)Conventional Bookviews
“Tracy does an excellent job of making these characters feel real and helping the reader connect. . . . The chemistry is still smoking hot and sexy as ever with these two.”—Summer’s Book Blog
overall this was a solid and gripping read – full of tension, emotion and steam.
The first installment is gives the story background and introduces us to Aria: hiding from her father, rebelling against her family, working as a cocktail waitress in a Las Vegas casino. She’s running from / hiding something, and isn’t particularly amenable to men, most particularly men with money.
Sebastian has returned after long absence to the casino his father owns. With his father’s illness and poor decisions prior to his affliction, management of the casino has been experiencing issues. Sebastian’s unusual decision regarding the acceptable behavior from high-rollers after Aria hit a particularly distasteful Russian gambler with a tray meant to hold drinks sets the story for the two to meet, and the sparks fly.
Each installment in this serial is 5 – 6 chapters, a whole book of 250 ish hard to put down pages. I’m not certain I agree with the marketing tactic on this – a single full length book would feel less daunting and frustrating to readers – but overall this was a solid and gripping read – full of tension, emotion and steam.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
Review: Play Me #1: Play Me Wild
Play Me #1: Play Me Wild by Tracy Wolff is the first book in her 5-part serial, Play Me.
As book one, this is an introduction to the characters and their history, not a whole lot of stuff (AKA Sexy Times) going on, HOWEVER, there is so much promise of what is to come.
Aria's character is well-established with her "whale" racking incident, and so is Sebastian's with how he handles the fallout from the whole situation, not only with Aria but also with the "whale" that got racked, his staff, and other "whales".
The allusions to Sebastian's proclivities and the sexual tension between him and Aria that just LEAPS off the page, Man, this is going to be a GREAT series. Onwards to book 2, Play Me #2: Play Me Hot.
