Overview

PLAY FAIR . . . OR PLAY TO WIN?

Falling in love with polar-opposite men was an intoxicating ride that nearly ended Sage Reese's life. Now it's time for Sage to decide: Parker, the clean-cut, filthy-rich business magnate . . . or Ryker, the tough-as-nails undercover detective. Her choice? Neither. Because she can't stand the thought of coming between two brothers-in-arms finally trying to repair their friendship.

Yet not everyone feels the same way, including a mysterious woman who's come to Ryker and Parker for help. Sage knows firsthand how hard it is for the two former Marines to resist a damsel in distress. But something just doesn't feel right.

Now there's a danger closing in that only Sage can see, and she intends to do everything she can to protect Parker and Ryker-even at the risk of losing them both . . .

This was an excellent conclusion. Tiffany Snow never fails to throw in the twists and turns, thus keeping me turning the page over and over. Every time I thought I had something figured out, she'd prove me wrong.

Play to Win is the third and final book in Tiffany’s Snow’s Risky Business series. While the focus was always on Sage and her choice, I always enjoyed the rebuilding of Ryker and Parker’s friendship more. While it was fun to see Sage come in to her own and step out into the world, it was far more satisfying to see the two childhood friends recover their lost friendship. In many ways this book ended the series in the only way it could have ended. Snow brings the story full circle with a satisfying conclusion. If you haven’t read this series definitely start at the beginning there are too many interconnected pieces along the way. If you’ve been reading all along I think you will enjoy the way things turn out. I really like Snow’s style and can’t wait to see where she goes from here.

Tiffany Snow has always been one of my favorite writers. She wrote the book boyfriend that remains at the top of my list to this day-Blane Kirk. She has a way of writing characters in such a way that you become emotionally attached. Trust me, I'm still licking my wounds over how the Kathleen Turner series, which broke my heart. So I was reluctant to get emotionally attached to another love triangle. But, this series and these characters were hard to resist. Sage Reese is a plucky heroine that can frustrate you one moment and have you saying "Go on, girl!"'the next. She has a problem most women would die for--two great but different men love her. Who will she choose? Over this series, we've seen her fall for both men but the connection with one just can't be denied. I loved the chemistry between the three leads and that just blooms in this last book. A face from the past throws a big wrench in the triangle and the twists and turns had me not wanting to put the book down. In the end, Sage does make a choice and it was far and away the right one. I absolutely loved this series and hate that it's only three books.

Another winner and a phenomenal conclusion to the Risky Business trilogy. I really tried to read it slowly so I could savor it, but I just had to know what would happen next. I'm afraid to try and summarize as I don't want to give anything away. As only this author can do, she leads you on an action packed and tightly crafted romantic suspense. This one is a must read for fans of the genre, but you really need to read the first two books first. If you haven't yet read one of her books, you are really missing out.

Sage Reese's life has been turned upside down in the last few months, and she is struggling to find some semblance of a normality in her life again, but her love life seems to have other plans for her, and is determined to keep from doing that. She never expected to find herself in this situation, or that is was truly possible, but she now knows that it is very possible to find yourself in love with two men at the same time. She loves them both for very different reasons, and doesn't have the slightest idea of who she should choose... but she knows she needs to choose one or the other. Just when she thinks she knows which one she wants, the other swoops in and changes her mind. Sage can't seem to bring herself to let history repeat itself, and knows the only fair thing to do here is let them both go, and help keep their friendship intact. Ryker and Parker have managed to find themselves in love with the same girl again... they are no strangers to this tricky little situation, and the last time they were here the situation ended horribly and neither man got the girl, and their friendship took a hit. Neither man is ready to walk away, and are both determined to win Sage's heart, but Sage turns the tables on them, and walks away from both of them, leaving them both devastated. Now they all must find a way to move on... but with a new danger lurking they are all thrust together once again, and all those feelings they have been trying to let go of are back front and center and are creating havoc once again... As soon as I saw that my request to preview this title was granted I was conflicted... I have been dying for months now to see how this one would all play out, but I was also wasn't ready to see it all end. This trilogy is by far one of my all time favorite reads, and for the past few months these three have been making small reappearances in my thoughts, and had me wondering what Ms. Snow had in store for them, and which one would ultimately end up with Sage's heart. As soon as I started reading this book last night, I knew I was in for a late night reading adventure... I was barely a sentence into it and it took a hold of my attention and had me flying right through the pages in search of answers... and all I will say is that it was one hell of a literary journey!! Ms. Snow definitely saved all her best literary tricks for this one... dare I day she is Master of love triangles!! I highly recommend you acquaint yourself with the men of the Risky Business series, they aim to please, and will go above and beyond to ensure that you are treated to one truly satisfying literary escape!!

4.5 Stars! “You and I belong together, and no matter how long it takes for you to realize that, I’m not giving up.” “Your eyes are like windows into your soul,” I said. “Everything else about you is hard to read, but your eyes…your eyes are so expressive. When you look at me, they change. Sometimes they burn right through me and I feel how much you want me. Other times, like now, they’re soft and warm, like you’re thinking of how much you love me.” What a fantastic conclusion to the Risky Business series. This book gave me everything that I wanted and so much more. Play to Win picks up right where the last book left off and boy does it start off with a bang. Things with Ryker, Parker, and Sage are just as complicated as ever. And just when you think things couldn’t possibly get any crazier, this trio is hit with a blast from the past. This character really stirs up trouble and will have you questioning their motives. The chemistry between our trio is stronger than ever, but this time around, the choice that Sage has to make is perfectly clear. But, her road to HEA won’t be an easy one. Her journey is tough and complicated and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Play to Win is fast paced and well-written. It is very easy to get swept up in Ryker, Parker and Sage’s story. It is filled with lots of angst, drama, romance and suspense. There’s love triangles and danger around every turn…..And twists….OMG, the twists. They just keep coming. And just when you think you’ve figured things out; BOOM! Another twist is thrown your way. I have to say, this book definitely kept me guessing and I loved every single minute of it. My only complaint is that the story is now over. But, if it’s got to end, I have to say, I am thrilled with the way things ended. *I was provided an ARC copy of this book, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*

Play to Win,  Tiffany Snow Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews Genre:  Romance, Romantic Suspense, Well, the last book ended on a real cliff-hanger – and I hate those. Sage thought Parker was dead....it certainly seemed as if he’d been killed, but we knew there was book three to come so Tiffany would find him some way out of his predicament ;-) Now book three is here, and for me its another cracking read. Parker, Ryker, Ryker, Parker – Sage just can’t choose and can’t have them both ( *shame* Two hot men...buuut its not that sort of book). For now though they seem to have called a truce, for tonight at least. So much has gone on that Sage needs them both right now. Tomorrow will be soon enough to pick up the animosity. Sage makes a choice that astonishes them though, she chooses neither of them, they were torn apart by a woman before, Natalie was the one to ruin their years of brother like friendship. Sage won’t do that again, so leaves them both. She’s broken hearted, has quit her job with Parker and turns to her parents. Dad is happy, he wants her to work for their family business, and she soon starts there. There’s drama though from the off when there’s a drive by shooting and her dad is badly injured. Parker was out with them, he’s responsible for their business finances put through his firm, and they’d had a dinner business meeting. Ryker as a cop gets pulled in and they feel Sage could be at risk too. All drama and danger once more, and Sage's attempts to stay away from them gets blown out of the water. Then someone unexpected turns up and throws them all into more confusion. I didn't not like this woman, was so suspicious of her like Sage, and yet Ryker and Parker seemed taken in by her charm, her damsel in distress situation. That’s the kind of men they are though, gallant, gentlemanly, and like many men, taken in by some timely tears and distressing tale. The story cracks on quickly, getting more and more involved and after a while the predicament Sage and her father are in, where someone seems to be looking for revenge and to close their business, seems tied to the past. It seems too that this new lady’s situation is strange, doesn’t seem to add up, and Sage can’t resist doing her own bit of snooping into her and what’s happening with her dad’s business, to the point of being foolhardy at times. I wouldn’t be able to just sit back and let things happen either, take her story at face value the way Ryker and Parker seem to, to leave it to the men to take all the risk, when its her friends being taken in, and her family, her firm that’s at risk of going under. There’s still the conundrum at first of them both wanting Sage, and being aggressive with each other but slowly we see things working out, with one of them being a definite choice although Sage still isn’t sure if his feelings are really genuine. Then just when I think its all over, all settled, we find it’s not and there’s another whacking dose of drama and danger to Sage. This time she doesn't escape so well, but what comes out does a total wrap up, closing all the lose ends. I enjoyed that extra part, felt like a bonus and certainly had me fooled. ( not that that's hard!!) There was a section from about 60 – 80% when I thought Why? Would he/she really? Without questioning anything? Why is she still? And lots of similar questions I can’t write as it would give away too much, but I was so puzzled at why things had been left a certain way, and like Sage I
