From the Mediterranean to the Caribbean, the game continues…

Zelda Wilder is on the run, this time from the ruthless assassins who’ve decided she knows too much to live.

“Playboy Prince” MacCallum Lockwood Tate isn’t about to let the beautiful player who stole his heart get away—if only he could decide whether he wants to save her or strangle her for her dangerous choices.

After tracking her down to a casino in St. Croix, Cal follows Zee back to Tortola where he intends to keep her safe. One problem: Zelda’s criminal liaisons are two steps ahead of her.

Lives are threatened, and all of the players’ skills are tested in this plot to capture a killer and save a princess.

Cinderella meets Ocean’s Eleven in this CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE DUET featuring secrets, lies, royal high jinks, scams and double-crosses; breathless, swooning lust, cocky princes, dominant alpha future-kings, and crafty courtiers, who are not always what they seem.

Disclaimer: This is the conclusion to Dirty Players Duet and CANNOT READ as Standalone. You NEED to read The Prince and The Player before picking this one up or even reading this review!

This book picks up exactly where The Player & The Princess (Read My Review) left off – with Zee on the run with Cal going after her to bring her back and protect her!

Rowan and Ava, on the other hand have settled into a blissful state of happiness; the only thing marring that happiness is that Zelda has now become the target of their villains. And with a background plot of betrayals, lies and spies; a kingdom to run, Queens to satisfy and scams to uncover – this was a swoony, breath-taking ride from the start to finish.

Cal catches up to Zee quite early in the book – and while I was quite happy and definitely ecstatic *fans herself* with their reunion; it still made me quite apprehensive; for if this book WASN’T about Cal and Zee getting back together, then there HAD to be a whole of a book where my heart was going to be broken more times than I could count – and I was PARTIALLY RIGHT.

While there was no heartbreak, really; there was a whole lot of twists and turns that I DID NOT see coming – I mean seriously? With my vivid imagination, there is a whole lot of scenes that I could have really done without (not really, but c’mon!) – and at one time I was really scared of the mind that Tia Louise’s – you’ll know what I am talking about when you read this book!

Zee shows a whole lot of courage in this book and that courage is only tempered by her strength. I was in awes for almost 60% of the book – she doesn’t let anything dampen her courage, not even what most would have called her stupidity (and trust me, I had my doubts) – but, n the end my exasperation with her actions is overshadowed by my respect for her as a human being (even if she is fictional!)

Cal, on the other hand, just got a whole lot of freakingly better. He was amazing in the first book; but it is here that we see that even with his human discontent showing, he still put Zee before anything else, even his need to be angry with her. It broke my heart to see him almost broken with everything happening around them; but it takes a strong man to hold our Zee’s heart and Cal proved it again (and again!) that he is definitely up for the task.

Here’s the thing – me? I read this duet together (I know; being a blogger is AH-WESOME!); so my ratings could be influenced by that, but not by much!

Was this perfect as a duet? Yes.

Was one book better than the other? I wouldn’t say so. Book 1 gave us a foundation to the story, but Book 2 is where all the action is.

Two couples in the book – my favourite? Cal and Zee; but it has to be because the focus was more on them rather than Rowan and Ava.

Sibling Rivalry? Absolutely no. There is love, respect and absolute loyalty in the relationship between both the siblings set.

For whom would I recommend this duet? Any reader, who adores their romance with a whole lot of kick in their plot with a background scandals, politics and betrayals; should definitely pick this duet up!

I only know as much as I don’t deserve him, he’s my prince. I gave my heart to him, and no matter how far I run, I’ll never stop wanting him.


Cheers, Pavi

Pick up THE PRINCE & THE PLAYER for just .99c for a limited time!!!

“Tons of laughs, sex, and suspense…THE PRINCE & THE PLAYER had me on the edge of my seat, biting my nails, and blushing like crazy!” – Shayna Renee’s Spicy Reads

Let the games begin…

Runaway Zelda Wilder will do whatever it takes to secure a better life for her and her sister Ava. Crown Prince Rowan Westringham Tate will do whatever it takes to preserve his small country.

When Zee is blackmailed into helping a vengeful statesman take down Rowan, she never expects she’ll be pulled into a web of lies and international intrigue–much less that she’ll find herself falling for Cal, Rowan’s “playboy” younger brother.

Ava’s no help, as she finds quiet walks in the moonlight discussing poetry and leadership with the brooding future king irresistible. Even more irresistible is kissing his luscious lips.

They’re in over their heads, and the more time passes, the more danger the sisters are in. Shots are fired, and it’s soon clear even a prince might not be able to rescue these players.
