No one ever said love is easy. In the third installment of an eBook original serial from the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, Aria and Sebastian discover that building trust might be harder than they ever imagined.
My name is Aria Winston. I've fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I'm on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.
Ever since taking Aria under his wing and into his seductive domain, Sebastian hasn't been able to think straight. Their chemistry is intoxicating. Their power exchange is exhilarating. And the sex leaves them both absolutely exhausted. But if there's one thing Sebastian does know, it's that he needs to protect this strong yet vulnerable woman. Because she has depths that are unknown—even to her. Aria has worked hard to establish herself as anything but submissive. That isn't who she is, or who she wants to be. So why does it feel so sweet to give up control . . . and so intense when Sebastian takes care of needs she doesn't even realize she has? But he has needs of his own—and secrets that run just as dark and deep as Aria's.
Play Me is an erotic serial intended for mature audiences. Aria and Sebastian's story continues in Play Me: Real.

4 "Learning Control & Revealing Secrets" Stars!
Book 3 in the Play Me series begins where Book 2 left off. Although not quite as steamy as Book 2, there is still a couple of heated scenes and we also begin unraveling some secrets that Sebastian and Aria are protecting.
In PLAY ME HARD, we get to see the effects of "sub drop". Crashing hard after their first experience together, Aria gets treated to some wonderfully sensual after care. While Aria may not understand the need, it is clear that Sebastian is well experienced in this arena, lending further evidence to my speculation that some of the secrets that he is hiding may pertain to his involvement in the BDSM world.
In addition to generally getting more used to one another, we get a surprise visit from none other than Ethan Frost from Ms. Wolff's series of the same name. Although his involvement in Play Me is quite literally "interrupted" before we get a complete sense of his involvement in the Play Me series, it is clear that Ethan and Sebastian are old friends and Ethan is looking to lean on his old pal, Sebastian, to resolve a rather thorny family issue.
Part 3 of this serial ends in quite the cliffhanger as another completely unexpected, and yet to be completely discovered, person from Sebastian's past surfaces.
I can't wait to see what happens in the next installment, Play Me Real! Hopefully we will gain further insight into the dark secrets that have made Sebastian and Aria into the characters they are today.
