Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Wildfire Marketing Solutions and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising". 

The first time I meet Madison Shore, I’m greeted by her knickers. She’s upside down and trying to untangle herself from my chair at a wedding.

I get to see a whole lot more of her later that night.

The second time I meet Madison Shore is in my London office. Turns out she’s a journalist writing an article about me. To keep control of my company, I need to convince people I’m more serious about business than my playboy reputation suggests. Madison holds my future in her hands.

Now I just need to convince the woman I took to bed on Saturday night that I'm not the player everyone thinks I am.

Private Player is stand-alone novel with brand new characters that have never been seen in any previous books.

My Thoughts:

Nathan is a man who seems to be all about business. He shows that not everything you see is the whole truth – especially when it comes to the press. Madison wants to prove that she’s good at what she does and shouldn’t be compared to anybody else. They meet at a special event and have me wondering if hookups at a gathering can lead anywhere. It was a great way to hold my attention.

If you are one that can read and listen to the book at the same time, I applaud you. I tried with this book and I ended up listening instead because I just couldn’t keep up with the words – kept getting distracted. Shane East does a great job in bringing Nathan to life. He gives me the accent that I’m missing when I try to do the reading. This was my first book with Clare Corbett as a narrator and I don’t think it will be my last. She also gives me the accent that I just cannot do. She also helped me put a visual, in my mind, as to what Madison may look like.

I’m a hard audience member when it comes to getting me to laugh and that includes when reading a book. The narrators help me to at least chuckle when the moment arrives. They help to keep things light which helps to move the scenes along. When reading, the author shows the connection that quickly builds between her main characters. But narrators give the reader that little bit extra that really shows what is starting to happen between them.

The bad thing about a book is that there just seems to be too many distractions that can take you away from a good read and then you have to settle back down once you’re able to get back to it. An audiobook can be taken anywhere. You just need something to put in your ears – it’s a great way to concentrate on the scenes as they come and go. I like that I have both the book and the audio version but for convenience’s sake the audiobook will win out.

The narrators also help to connect me to the mystery that revolves around some people that Nathan knows. The author is good at keeping the mystery going until almost the very end. It’s another way to hold her reader’s attention. And it’s a great way to have us looking forward to what type of ending the she has in store for us. Her narrators help with that ending as well.
