About the Author

Janna Shay started reading at the young age of five and began a lifelong love of reading. As a child she would spend endless hours at the local library pouring through all genres of books. It wasn’t until her teens that her love of romance novels blossomed.

Always wanting to embark on a writing career, Janna worked in the accounting and secretarial fields and raised her family before trying her hand at writing. Starting by writing a family journal chronicling her family’s history, she soon found herself writing full-length novels and immersing herself in the lives of her characters.

A native Californian, Janna lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband Julian and miniature schnauzer, Kodi, and enjoys a close relationship with her children, who all live nearby.

When Janna isn’t following her dream of writing or enjoying her love of reading, she can be found engaging in activities with her family.

I started reading this in the afternoon and I absolutely couldn't put it down. I was going to just read a few pages and then go mow the lawn but I ended up reading the entire book and by the time I was done reading it was to late to do it but that is ok because I very much enjoyed this book and I loved the characters. I will be reading this book again at a later date.

Fair Play is a sensual romance that captured my interest from the very first page. I couldn't put it down. It had surprising turns that grabbed me and pulled me into the story. I recommend this novel to anyone who likes romantic stories. It is a must read.

I couldn't put the book down. I was drawn into the story. It never lost momentum and was filled with twists and turns I never saw coming. I laughed and cried and felt for Dani and what she was going through. Please read this book.

Mix together two strong and lonely people, add secrets, pour in a sexy location, and turn up the heat: FAIR PLAY delivers. Janna Shay writes well, tells a great story, and amps up the sensuality. This story takes on the cliche "All's fair in love and war." Dani and Jace, the protagonists, are completely unprepared for the torrent of emotions that come with instant attraction. They can't play fair when it comes to love. It's a battle of wills and a very sensual ride. Read it!

Book review: Fair Play by Janna Shay I thought this was a thrilling an sensual novel to read. I enjoyed the relationship between Jace and Dani. I enjoyed their sexy teasing game they play with each other throughout the story. I loved that the story took place in Sin City, Las Vegas. I really felt badly for Dani’s situation she was in when she ran away from home. This novel had it’s touching moments that made me cry and love scenes were hot. The story begins when Dani moves to Las Vegas and starts working at a casino. She meets the owner of the Diamond Casino, Jace Diamond. They quickly fall in love with each other. Jace wants forever and Dani feels she can’t offer forever due to her dark past. He discovers what happened to her in her past. Her past comes back for vengeance and vows to destroy her. In opinion the story needs more sex scenes, maybe a little more raunchiness. I understand that this is a romance and not erotica. I would recommend this novel to people who enjoy soft and sensual romances with intrigue and danger added to the mix. This novel is a Good Read.

Janna Shay has a wonderful ability to bring the reader into the story. You sympathize with Dani for fear making her deceitful. You rejoice with Dani over finding someone to love her so completely. Jace is drawn to Dani from their first encounter. Not only is he drawn to her, but he is determined to move mountains to free her from a past that threatens to defeat their love. Jace is a strong lover, but he has met his match with the feisty Dani. While she has lived a past that is scaring, she is a survivor. It was fun and exciting to join the Vegas casino life with Jace and Dani. Along with this poignant love story, Shay has woven in the miracle of family. I look forward to reading more books by Janna Shay. After you have read and enjoyed FAIR PLAY, I invite you to read books by DeAnn Smallwood: TEARS IN THE WIND, SAPPHIRE BLUE, and MONTANA STAR. Under the pen name D.M. Woods: DEATH CROSSES THE FINISH LINE.

Miss Shay, you left me in smiles! The only negative thing I can say about Dani is I didn't like that her body remained the same as it had been before childbirth (TWO childbirths)! :) Seriously, this book starts out quite hot. Typically, I tend to sway toward sweeter, more plot driven stories, BUT Fair Play became just that. Stick with it! Soon, I was enthralled and quite impressed. Especially with the hero, Jace. Quite enthralled and impressed, actually. ;)

I started reading this book and couldn't put it down until I finished the story, I loved the characters. The chemistry between Jace and Dani was sizzling and the sex scenes hot. I really enjoyed reading this book and will definitely be looking for more from this author. Read it, you won't be sorry.

When I picked up this book, I'd somehow gotten it in my head that it was romantic suspense. Turns out it was a contemporary romance with a suspense subplot, which is fine, but it led me to be a little impatient to get to the suspense part until I realized that I'd misjudged the genre. So bear the genre in mind when you read the book! There's lots of hot and heavy chemistry between the leads, Dani and Jace. Jace owns the casino where Dani gets a job. She's on the run, and doesn't intend to get involved with anyone, but she can't deny her attraction to Jace, and he's a man who's used to not being denied anything. However, she tries her hardest to pretend that he doesn't affect her. Naturally, this intrigues Jace, and he pursues her all the harder until he wins her... but that when things get tougher for the two of them. I won't give away any spoilers, but I had some difficulties with Dani's character until her big secret was revealed. She comes across as rather immature at times, and the reasons why aren't clear until you know what happened to her. If there had been some hints earlier about the nature of the trauma Dani had suffered, it would have helped me understand her better earlier in the book. Once I learned what happened, the lightbulb came on and her behavior and reactions made more sense. I also think that poor Jace was a little too understanding at times and didn't press her for information when she was flying off the handle. Yes, he's very attracted to her and falls for her, but there's a limit to the amount of drama someone should have to put up with. Dani overreacts (though, so does Jace at times) and is extremely insecure, and that gets wearing. Why Jace didn't press her harder and earlier for information, I don't know. There's also the matter of how the heck did Dani live for seven years on the run? I think that part of the story could have been quite interesting, particularly given Dani's age (especially at the start) and her lack of resources, but Jace never asks and Dani never tells. I can only imagine that she could have gotten into all sorts of jams during that time, and might have done some things to be ashamed of or to regret (instead of the incident that set her on the run, which she worries that Jace won't understand, when it was quite clear that she did the right thing, and I can't see anyone condemning her for it). These issues aside, I really got into the book once Dani's past comes back to haunt her. The villain was quite creepy, and I was very uneasy until his character was defeated. When Dani was in his clutches, I kept worrying about what would happen to her. Well done! Overall, a nice beach read--lots of sparks, fun banter, and chills. Plenty to keep you turning the pages!
