Overview

As an accomplished architect, single dad of teenage twin girls, and co-owner of The Playground, Raleigh's hottest jazz and blues club, it's an understatement to say Malcolm Cobb has his hands full. Add to that an ex-wife who knows how to bring the drama, it's no surprise he has little time or inclination for a personal life. But when he spots stunning, voluptuous Cilla Jameson, he's suddenly considering rearranging his schedule and setting aside his concerns. . .

Independent and successful, Cilla would love to be in love. But when it comes to men, she has a lengthy list of requirements. And "no children" is at the top. Yet she can't help being intrigued by Malcolm. He's handsome, fascinating, respectful--and up for a challenge. But is Cilla? After all, the man has baggage--and it is fully packed. Can she handle the ex who's determined to keep him single? Or the twins who are not quite the angels Malcolm thinks? She'll have to decide, if she wants to play for keeps. . .

Playing For Keeps by Deborah Mello is a page-turner. The author had my emotions going all sorts of ways as she dealt with some serious issues. I felt as if I had a front row seat watching as each chapter unfolded. I found myself cheering for Malcolm and his girls and praying for their mother. The chemistry between Malcolm and Cilla was hot. The interaction between Malcolm and his daughters was priceless. The book is well written and the storyline flowed perfectly. The page count is more than adequate for the price. Playing For Keeps is part of the Sultry Southern Nights series but can be read as a standalone novel. I encourage you to read Book 1 in the series also because it’s just that good. Ms. Mello has put her all into this story and in my opinion, Playing For Keeps, is her best work thus far.
