Review – Playing Games by Donna Alam @word_hoor

Title: Playing Games
Author: Donna Alam
Genre: Erotic Romance


Everyone has secrets. What would it take to make you whisper yours?
Louise had no interest in relationships until one night turned her whole world around.
Hold me down. Kiss me hard. Fuck me harder.
A stranger in a strange city, she wasn’t looking to lose control. Until she did.
Intensely. Irrevocably. Dangerously.
She handed herself over to him.
One night. His rules. No names.
But he had other plans.
She’s an enigma. Unfinished business. Potential. She’s what he wants. Again and again.
And though the last thing he wanted to do was hurt her, it was on his agenda somewhere. Because relationships are messy and painful.

It’s not all about Playing Games.


Reading the blurb, you might get the impression that this story is an explicit adult read.  And, whilst there is no doubt that this is NSFW, it is not as a result of overly graphic content.

I felt like there was a nod to THAT book, but with much less of the clichéd vocabulary.  Rather, for the most part, the sex games are hinted at. Certainly, I have read books which have been much more … detailed.  And I think that this is one of the reasons why I enjoyed the book.  It makes for a very entertaining read – hot, sultry and downright sexy.

Be warned, this is hot stuff.

About the author

Donna Alam writes about exotic locations and the men you aren’t married to, but wish you were. Escapism reads with heart and humour and, of course, plenty of steam.

Hailing from the North of England, she’s a nomad at heart moving houses and continents more times than she cares to recall. She once worked at a school like the one described in her Pretty Trilogy. Alas, there were no handsome male protagonists hanging around there.

An Eclectic reader and part-time perv, she’s a huge fan of smart men, as well as protagonists with a fair measure of inappropriateness.
