PLAY is a quirky 70k word standalone about life, love, and the pursuit of orgasms. I mean, video games.


I’m Payton Blake. A successful, balanced twenty-something girl living the dream.

OK, that’s a big-ass lie. I could be those things, if I stopped mainlining watermelon slushies like a food group. And if I had friends outside of work. It wouldn’t hurt if I’d had sex in the last year, either…But even if I craved some lip-biting, sheet-ripping, toe-curling action? Max Donovan is the last guy I’d call. Because he’s not just a distraction, he’s dangerous. The man should come with a warning label:



He might have built the indie video game that broke the internet, but he’s got a chip on his shoulder the size of the Titanic. He’s too smug. Too damn knowing. And that body was built for things I can’t even vocalize.

A smart girl would stay away. But I can’t, because the sexiest, bossiest nerd on the planet just became my biggest client.So…yeah.

Did I mention he has an eyebrow piercing?
