    This is the first Sandra Brown book i've read in a while and I almost forgot how much I like her. Very fast-paced; hard to put down read.

    I used to read lots of Sandra Brown's books, but felt they became a bit repetitive in their story line. I purchased this book and was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the 'less than perfect' character (Griff) and the overall plot. The author kept reeling me in for another twist, right when I thought I had it all figured out. I will put her books back on my "Must Read" list.

    This was a different from ordianary book. It was exciting to see that someone who made a mistake was willing to get his life turned around for the better in doing what was necessay in a logical manner with little or no violence and attaining his goal. it was very hard to sit down since every move you had to knw the outcome.

    PB/Suspense Fiction: This book is total fumble and totally insults any person is was adopted or has adopted. So a billionaire asks a ex-con/ex-pro football player to impregnate his wife "the old fashion way". There are so many problems with this book that it will probably make my worst list of 2011. The billionaire is trusting a guy with a gambling problem to keep a secret. The con takes an STD test and then has unprotected sex with a so-called "clean" hooker. The billionaire & his wife believe the ex-football player is a good specimen for a sperm donor, even though he is a gambler, shopaholic, & GOT CAUGHT for throwing a game and sent to federal prison for five years. Then there is the problem with the billionaire not wanting anyone to know that the potential child is not really his. For any person who was adopted or child of an anonymous sperm donor, Sandra Brown just slapped you in the face. She pretty much says you don't count. She felt the need to have her intelligent, noble character turn his nose on adoption is ridiculous. That his wife can't be artificially inseminated is more ridiculous. This book is a big fat NO.

    Just about all of Sandra Brown's novels I have enjoyed and although I didn't think that this was one of her best effort, I still enjoyed the story. The love story that centered on Griff and Laura was a bit weak, and the characters could have been flushed out more, but overall the story held my interest.

    I've been a Brown fan for years, but this one just doesn't measure up. The plot was too crazy to find remotely believable and none of the characters were particularly likable. The romance is lacking and the only sex scene comes at the very end in an awkward flashback. Note about the Nook Format--it was especially poor. There were no dividers when the scene of the action would change mid-chapter, which made several parts difficult to follow. Also, the epilogue was missing from the Nook copy that I downloaded. I thought the book had ended abruptly without any resolution between the main lovers, but a whole set of pages was missing.

    I loved the book but had one problem. I read the book when first released in hardcover then decided to add to my Nook. I found the last chapter missing from the e-reader. Can anyone tell me if the last part was added to the e-reader version?

    I have read many of Sandra Brown's books and overall I would say that I have enjoyed most of them. I was a bit disappointed in Play Dirty and don't think it was one of her better stories. In Play Dirty I was always looking for what Sandra is known for; great descriptions of the character traits; superb plot development and a terrific ending. In my opinion these characteristics of Sandra were missing. I never really got the relationship Griff and Laura and Foster Speakman. This is an easy read and a relaxing read and even though I was a bit disappointed I'll probably check out her next book.
