I've never been so stupid in my entire life.
Elise Parrish, my teammate's incredibly sweet and gorgeous younger sister, should have been off-limits, but my hockey stick didn't get the memo.
After our team won the championship, our flirting turned physical, and I took her to bed. Then shame sent her running the next morning from our catastrophic mistake.
She thinks I don't remember that night - but every detail is burned into my brain so deeply, I'll never forget. The feel of her in my arms, the soft whimpers of pleasure I coaxed from her perfect lips....
And now I've spent three months trying to get her out of my head, but I'm starting to understand she's the only girl I'll ever want.
I have one shot to show her I can be exactly what she needs, but Elise won't be easily convinced.
That's okay, because I'm good under pressure, and this time, I'm playing for keeps.

Sweet, charming and adorable read!
I originally listed to the Audible Original of Playing for Keeps by Kendall Ryan and loved it! So when I had the opportunity to read it, I jumped on the chance! This is an older brother’s best friend romance with all kinds of feels! Justin Brady has been friends Owen and Elise Parish forever. As best friends with Owen, his little sister was always a fixture in their lives. But now they are grown and there isn’t anything little about Elise. But bro code dictates he stay as far away from her as he can. But a night of celebrating leads to an unforgettable night together they both try desperately to forget.
Elise and Justin have tried to deny the attraction they feel for each other, so much so, they never expected the other to feel the same way. But when things come to a head, can they keep things fun and light? I loved Justin. He was a truly a good guy who did not think he deserved Elise. He was such a caring and strong man. Elise grew up around hockey and hockey players all her life. She saw the good in Justin, even when he did not see it. She was very likeable, sweet and considerate.
I absolutely loved Justin and Elise’s story in Playing for Keeps by Kendall Ryan. A sweet and delightful older brother’s best friend romance with light angst and a whole lot of charm. I definitely recommend either listening or reading this charming read!
Loved it! Happy reading!
I want my money back
Not worth the price! The book was only fair and lacked all juicy details. There was like 2 times that the author wrote dirty explicit encounters. The book wasn’t as thorough as i hoped.
