Playing for Keeps is LIVE!

*clears throat*

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKK!!

*composes self*

With that moment done, I'm happy to say that Playing for Keeps is FINALLY live!! And just OMGWHATAMORNINGALREADYICAN'TEVENDEAL. At the time I write this, the book hasn't even been live for 12 hours yet and is already on FIVE Apple iBooks bestseller lists.

FREAKING. FIVE. FIVE!!!

Now I've done that you want me to shut up and get on with it, don't you? Oh, sigh. We have this every time. I should know better. Again with the rambling. (In my defence, I was up half the night and am slightly delusional so *hand over mouth*)



From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Emma Hart, comes the second book in The Game series, and the story everyone wanted after The Love Game…



She's in love with him. 

He's trying not to love her. 
One night changes everything.

Aston Banks never meant to get close to Megan Harper – not even for that one night. Haunted by a childhood he refuses to face, he knew she could break through every wall he’d ever built and tear them down without even realising she was doing it.

Betraying Braden by starting a relationship with Aston wasn’t on Megan’s to-do list, but the second she sees a glimpse of someone other than the arrogant ass she’s come to know, she can’t walk away.

Aston’s childhood is worse than Megan ever guessed, but as he tries and fails to push her away, it’s clear her love is stronger than the demons that cling to him every day. And now, because of it, he finally has to deal with what he’s buried deep down.

What he doesn’t want to face. What he’s fought against for so long.

And they have to do it all without Braden finding out.

Keeping a relationship secret has never been harder.


**This book can be read as a standalone novel, but reading The Love Game (The Game, #1) beforehand is advised.**



ADD TO GOODREADS.

(I know, Smashwords needs to go live. This is because I've been lucky enough to work with the SW team to bring you the book today across all platforms, and they are in control of publishing it, not me. It was up for pre-order on B&N but there seems to be a glitch on their site, and I'm working now to resolve this issue. I hope to have the link to you ASAP!)


Normally, here, I would post an excerpt, but I'm going to link to chapter one instead since there are a TON of blogs this week with that excerpt ;)

And the playlist - because you know each of my books have one. These are the songs that inspired the novel, and the embedded song just below isn't available on Spotify, but is one of the main songs on my list. It sums up the way Aston feels about Megan perfectly. 








NOW. The book blitz schedule! I'm so incredibly honoured to know and work with SO many amazing bloggers. I've been completely blown away by their generosity in participating in this book blitz. It's a busy week, but be sure to stop by as many blogs as you can!
