He remembers everything… except the first thirty years of his life.
Sports star-turned-coach Lucas Delaunay has no recollection of his past, despite his parents’ and friends’ efforts to help him.
Enter Isabelle Ferrand, a young publicist hired to land sponsors and fundraise for Lucas’s club. He is told she was a friend. Just a friend. Everyone, Isabelle included, insists he regarded her as a sister.
Not anymore, he doesn’t.
Every night, he dreams of her naked and panting beneath him. Her taste, her smell, the way her breasts fill his palms… Every morning he wakes up rock hard, groping for her in his empty bed.
With desire spinning out of control, Lucas wonders if amnesia has changed his taste in women, or if there’s something Isabelle isn’t telling him.
And if she might be the key to unlocking his past.

Playing for Keeps is a quick read. I got through it in only a few hours. I did enjoy it but I would have liked it to be a bit longer or maybe have a second epilogue with Lucas’s POV. The story itself did flow well and if longer may have felt stretched. I enjoyed getting to know Lucas who we met briefly in book 1 (Zach’s story). I liked Isabelle and Alix Nichols portrays her realistically as being a bit gun shy with Lucas. Lucas was funny, smart and a bit conniving in his quest to figure out his past with Isabelle which is forgivable considering he doesn’t remember. Overall I enjoyed Playing for Keeps and it was fun read – just not my favorite of Alix Nichol’s books. I look forward to seeing what happens next in this series or what else is to come. Keep up the good work.
I received an advanced copy of this book for free from the author and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
