Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
After realizing the error of his philandering ways, reformed badboy and bestselling author Dr. Lance Montgomery returns to win back the love of scorned beauty Asia Fowler in Jackson's zesty, steamy sequel to The Playa's Handbook. Everyone in Lance's life has commitment on the brain: best buddies Phillip McKenna and Marcus Lowery plan to marry the women in their lives, and Asia, the girl who got away, now finds herself halfheartedly engaged to humanitarian relief doctor Sean Crews, igniting a vicious rivalry between the men. A series of carefully orchestrated "chance" encounters gives Lance the chance to dare embittered Asia to test their attraction, but she resists, appealing to sister Claire and literary agent Melissa for moral support. Of course, these ladies will hatch their own plan to get Lance and Asia back together. Meanwhile, Lance's sister, Carrie, a childhood runaway, wrestles with both a blackmail scheme and her unbridled passion for Connor Hargrove, a flirty, commitment-phobic investigator on the case. Though the story's tropical-island flavored conclusion is overwhelmingly apparent right from the start, this won't deter readers from becoming absorbed in the interpersonal fireworks and sultry melodrama that has become Jackson's forte. (Nov.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
In this sequel to The Playa's Handbook (2004), a brief encounter between two sparring relationship experts changes both their lives. Lance Montgomery's scandalous The Playa's Handbook is the ultimate manual of seduction, teaching wannabes how to score while successfully avoiding commitment. As a "playa among playas," Lance lives by his own love 'em-and-leave-'em example. That changes when he meets Asia Fowler, a psychologist and successful writer with a more traditional idea of love and marriage. After a disastrous ending to their first night together, a hurt and betrayed Asia rushes out of Lance's life, and into an engagement with her longtime friend Sean. A stunned Lance uses his relentless charm to get her back: He gets a copy of her schedule, shows up at a gala event where he knows she will be and, in a very stalker-like move, arranges to be alone with her on a tiny Caribbean island. She resists him for as long as she can, but his sincerity and their mutual passion win out. The author tries to liven up the predictable story with plenty of sex scenes, but ultimately, the hyper-successful, overly confident duo prove too hard to identify with. More interesting is the subplot involving Lance's baby sister Carrie, who thwarts a would-be blackmailer with the help of a strapping ex-cop turned private investigator. Carrie's combination of vulnerability, street smarts and brazen sensuality make her easier to root for. A sexy, formulaic diversion.

    Another Great Book

    I haven't read a Brenda Jackson book I didn't like and "No More Playas" was a great book. I really enjoyed the book, I hope she has more to come because I can see a relationship with Lance brother and Asia sister.

    You Have Not Disappointed me yet

    Brenda I really did not expect to read Carrie's & Conner's story, but I really enjoyed it along with Asia & Lance. Lance & all his buddy's are no longer Playas. I really enjoyed the book. Which I enjoy everything you write.

    Book is the business!!

    I read the first one and I figured she was going to write this book but this book is almost better than the first one. You must read if you read 'The Playas Handbook'.

    No More Playas

    This book is a turn pager. Excellent, it shows that even a playa can become a lovable man for any one woman. Asia, a strong woman, trying to do right is attracted to Lance, but she thinks and knows he is like his books. So, Lance has to do everything in his power to prove that he is no longer a playa! Pick up a copy and enjoy.

    A WONDERFUL BOOK!

    Lance Montgomery, a playa expert, met his match in the prequel, The Playa's Handbook, in the form of Dr. Asia Fowler. That book left us bereft because when Lance realized that he loved Asia, she rebuffed him and accepted a marriage proposal from a longtime friend. In this sequel, we find Lance doing his best to win the heart of the woman he loves, while the relationships of the intertwined characters from the first book are resolved. I loved the ending and was not disappointed in any parts of the book. Brenda has proven herself as a writer who understands the complexities of relationships based on love, and yes, sometimes just sex. She gives us insight into both sides of the relationship that we as humans don't often consider and I appreciate that about her.

    So Good--- I was Reading AT WORK!

    This book is definitely a page turner because it shows that a playa can change from self-discovery. I loved how strong Asia was-she did not take any mess off of Dr. Montgomery. This is a great feature of the book because women can sometimes slip back into an unhealthy relationship too easily for lack of self-esteem.

    Love to Read

    GREAT BOOK!!! THe best conclusion I've ever read. The 'Prequel' to this was good, but I was left dissatisfied. This book did the job, it filled in what I missed from the first and ended leaving me with a sense of completeness.

    fine contemporary romance

    Psychologist Dr. Lance Montgomery became famous (infamous in some circles) when he wrote the best selling seduction manual THE PLAYAS HANDBOOK. This self help reference book helps males score without commitment. His tome leads him to confrontations with an enemy combatant, psychologist Dr. Asia Fowler. However before he realizes that he is in love, he hurts Asia driving her into the arms of humanitarian relief worker Dr. Sean Crews. --- Lance misses Asia and now realizes he is ready to do the unthinkable commit to a long term relationship with the woman he loves. However, Asia is now engaged to the nice caring Sean. Though an impediment, Lance begins his moves with a zeal like none he has everfelt before. He obtains her schedule and appears ¿by chance¿ at events she attends. Still he betrayed her once and he is known as the playa¿s playa so he must find a way to earn her trust because the passion between them could provide a century¿s worth of energy for a Caribbean island. --- There are other subplots involving his two pals ready to marry the women they love and his sister caught in the middle of a blackmail scheme, but the prime story line is the second chance at love between the hall of fame playa and the psychologist he cherishes. Lance is terrific as he employs his honed skills in relationships to make it with the one female who scorns him although he swears he is NO MORE PLAYAS since he wants to be a one woman man. Though this tale can stand alone, contemporary romance fans will enjoy reading both delightful tales. --- Harriet Klausner
