Enemies And Playmates by Darcia Helle
5 out of 5 stars
We happened to stumble across this FREE book while searching Amazon for new books to read. I hate to admit it but this book could have easily been overlooked by us...but we are so happy it found us or we found it. Did we mention is was FREE at the time? But I think we all agree that we would pay for this book in a heartbeat.
Like the old saying states, "Keep your friend close and your enemies closer."
Darcia Helle, writes the character Alex Covington so powerful that he almost overshadows all the other characters. Alex is a successful lawyer and he wins by any means necessary. That is until he crosses paths with Jesse Ryder. Ryder is a sexy private investigator that refuses to do a job for Mr. Covington. Not to mention Ryder wants to date his daughter, Lauren Covington. Covington does not take no for an answer and threatens to make Jesse's life hell.
Just when you think you have everything figured out, the book takes you down another dark alley full of surprises. We loved how this book had everything - affairs, family secrets, backstabbing friends, and murder. You get so wrapped up in the drama of the book you almost miss that is kind of a love story.
We will definitely be reading more from Darcia Helle!!!
