    You Will Fall For Caleb and Especially Lollipop!

    This is one of my favourite books in a favourite series. Lots of emotional healing for both Hero Caleb and especially Heroine Sadie. You will fall in love with Caleb; he is so patient and loving and insightful and knows that although Sadie is a bit of work, she is worth it. You feel for Sadie's angst-ridden past, but admire her for her courage and determination in her emotional growth and healing. It was fun to see them cross paths with other characters in this series. Although the book addresses serious issues, there is also witty dialogue and several laugh-out-loud moments as I have come to expect from this gifted author. The star of this book however is Lollipop the Puppy and the scenes with her and Caleb will absolutely melt your heart. I finished this story with a happy sigh of satisfaction and affection. Going on my 2019 Favourite Reads List.

    Loved Caleb and Sadie

    How can you not help but fall in love with a three legged dog, Lollipop!! So that's what Sadie and Caleb did, so they share joint custody. Very opposite of each other but will soon find they are fighting some of the past demons and can't fight the physical attraction between them. Loved Sadie, such a past and broken but is determined to do for her self. She is now so strong and wants to help others with their scars. Caleb is my new book boyfriend, he looks so put together on the outside but has his own demons he has been fighting with. He is so good to Sadie. Now his sisters, I could do without, they are such PITA's!! This is the perfect read with plenty of banter, humor and a sexy relationship. Plus I loved Lollipop!!

    Contemporary Romance

    For a year Caleb Parker and Sadie Lane have seen one another around. With the Pacific Pier Building a hive of business and friendships and both Caleb and Sadie often in the area it is not surprising that they would see one another over the past year when there for business or pleasure. One night their lives change when they take on the challenge of co-owning an abandoned dog. With forced exchanges of three-legged Lollipop, frequent Lollipop-updates via tex messages and eventually more personal messages between them the two begin to leave their preconceptions misconceptions behind and really get to know one another. As their backstories come out I began to know and really like Caleb and Sadie and see how they might be able to have a future together...well...maybe. Sadie did have a bit more trust and communication issues than Caleb did and her family issues were perhaps harder to surmount than Caleb’s were BUT as the story unfolded the two did finally figure out what was important to them and it just happened to be being a couple. Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    A Must Read

    I absolutely loved Sadie and Caleb’s story in Playing for Keeps by Jill Shalvis, book seven in her Heartbreaker Bay series. Caleb Parker is a wealthy successful entrepreneur who is very close to his sisters, who all work with him. The Parker family is loyal and protective of each other. Sadie Lane is working two jobs, tattoo artist and in a spa, in order to make ends meet. She appears tough, always needing to have the last, often sarcastic response, as she does not care to open herself to a chance of again getting hurt. She is private, keeping her past to herself, and unlike Caleb, is not close to her family. One stormy, rainy night, Caleb encounters an abandoned three legged dog, trying to catch it. Sadie, who knows Caleb as a businessman who she calls “Suits”, tries to help him with capturing the dog. Together they rescue the dog and decide they both want to keep the dog Lollipop, as Sadie named her. Sadie and Caleb decide co-owning the dog is best, forcing them to work together, and learn how to ask someone else for help. Caleb was an asthmatic and scrawny youngster, often the victim of bullies. One day he met a dojo who helped him learn to protect himself and save his life. As Caleb made his mark in the world he made sure his sisters and mom had all they needed, money-wise, and helped others, like his old dojo, in dire straits. Sadie was a round peg in a family of square holes; she did not fit. Misunderstood by her family she suffered from their over the top concern with her and her differences; losing much of her freedom and confidence. It was not surprising that she wouldn’t let people get close to her. Caleb wanted to help her, take care of her but knew she would resent any interference in her life. On paper Caleb and Sadie were opposites, him rich and she struggling, but they both loved that dog to pieces. As they spent time together, getting to know each other, their attraction grew and became steamy. I loved that Caleb was the first to truly see Sadie, through her walls, through her armor, and started understanding her. Saying that, Caleb and Sadie are experts as sabotaging any relationship they’ve been in and this one has its moments; especially when a major misunderstanding occurs causing trust issues. Like the other residents in Cow Hollow, I was cheering on these two toward a happy ending. Ms. Shalvis wrote a wonderfully sexy, emotional and heartwarming story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with amusing and sexy banter, out loud laughs, sarcasm, and endearing characters not only giving Sadie and Caleb a chance at having a solid, loving future together but also a wonderful network of supportive friends. This book is totally in Jill Shalvis’ voice; I could hear her voice and many of her funny tales as I read this book. I highly recommend Playing for Keeps to other readers. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
