Dante is a born player. This time, he's playing for keeps.
Dante Cole is a player. Women know what they're getting into before the first kiss, and as his business grows, they can expect to sign an NDA before the dessert menu lands on the table. As committed as he is to work and family, there's no room in his heart for a serious one-on-one relationship. He's afraid to look for anything more.
Marisol Aguilar only needs to work for the loathsome Dante Cole for a few weeks while her mom recuperates from a freak accident that nearly destroyed their family's livelihood. Despite her mother's inexplicable fondness for the man, Mari refuses to think highly of him. She's heard the stories. But chance encounters reveal different sides of Dante that contradict her expectations of him.
When Fate throws them together on Valentine's Day, will Mari fall victim to the player's game? Or will she be the one making the rules?
Light, sweet, and a fun read, Love Games is the second short story in the Holiday Heartbeats series by Atina Atwood.
