Title: Playing With Fire

Author: Paisley Walker

Genre: NA Erotica


Goodreads Link:




My name is Laken Thompson, and I have come up with an idea that is too good to surpass. Being a twenty five year old that just graduated college and has accrued an insane amount of debt it’s the best thing I can think of. I am auctioning off the most precious thing I have. My virginity. 


What I wasn’t planning on was the man that changed everything. Asher Braxton, the epitome of stunning. The man that has everything, except for me. I’ve run for months from the devilishly handsome man stalking me like some prey. Just when I thought I evaded his advances his voice is the one I hear to make a bid. On shaky legs I pray that someone will outbid him, but the thought in my head is… I’m playing with fire and this time I hope I don’t get burned.

Playing With Fire is an enjoyable book with a sexy alpha hero and a strong heroine.  There are lots of steamy scenes with a good plot to back it up.  I would have given it five stars, but I found the first half of the book a little slow for my tastes.  The story is told from both of the main characters points of view which I liked, and both had distinctive 'voices'.  I liked the author's writing style, she can definitely pen a good story, so I would read more of her books.

Asher Braxton is gorgeous, extremely rich and has girls throwing themselves at him - but the girl that he has wanted for months and months will have nothing to do with him.  Laken is having nothing but bad luck, and when she finds herself with a massive debt she has no idea what to do.  Her best friend helps her come up with a rather crazy plan to auction off her most prized asset - her virginity!  You can guess who bids in the auction - Asher! Lots of drama and sexy times ensue and the results make for great reading.

There are some fantastic characters in the book.  Asher and Laken are both great, but for me Pappy steals the show - I loved him!  Asher is a real alpha male and a total playboy, but behind the flashy exterior he has such a soft heart.  Laken is a strong woman, she works hard and has values she is determined to stand by, but circumstances force her to make a drastic decision.  The chemistry between the two of them is sizzling, they make a great couple.  Nothing is straight forward for them though, they have obstacles to overcome.  Playing With Fire gets four out of five stars.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review
