Play My Game: A 100 Series Standalone Romance Kindle Edition
New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns to the sizzling, emotional world of the 100 Series with Play My Game, a contemporary romance between a tormented, brilliant painter and the beauty he is determined to have at any cost.
She stands out like a flame in the dark. Out of place in my orbit, she is a bright splash of color in an abyss of darkness. An innocent in a den of sin. And I, Jared Rush, am a master of corruption.
Like my paintings—dark, carnal images that have crowned me the king of the avant-garde art world while also making me a very rich man—I don't flinch away from my baser instincts. And now, every one of those instincts is hungry for the fresh-faced beauty who made the mistake of wandering into my lair.
I don't know her name yet, but that's inconsequential. I know who she belongs to. And while she has nothing to do with the bad blood that's been festering inside me for decades, I can’t help thinking about that old, unsettled score. I'm thinking about payback. And I already have a price in mind. One that begins with her.
When it comes to getting what I want, I always play to win. But in the end, will the cost of my vengeance be more than I can bear to lose?
While this novel is Book 5 in the 100 Series, featuring characters introduced in earlier books, PLAY MY GAME can be read as a complete standalone with a swoon-worthy HEA and no cliffhangers.

I’m a huge fan of this series and how the author keeps managing to blow me away with every story that not only enriches the world she has created, but tells the HEA of characters I wanted to know more about and this addition was no different.
I’ve been waiting for Jared Rush to find the woman who would bring him to his knees and the author has given him a worthy heroine who could not be more perfect in Melanie.
Put them together and feel the pages heat up, emotions build and their love story unravel in the most unexpected way. I loved this pairing so very much.
I’ve already said that I’m a huge fan of this author and the series, so I can honestly say that this story was riveting from start to finish and still has me thinking about Jared and Melanie long after I turned the last page. Outstanding is my last word on it.
Jared Rush is known for his highly erotic paintings and his bad boy reputation but there is many layers to Jared that come out in this book. Jared hasn't painted in two years, nothing has caught his interest until he sees her dancing in his club, the carefree way she moved her body with her auburn hair falling down her back spoke to him. He knew who she was, Melanie Laurent, she was with a man who Jared has sworn to devastate, so why not take her as well?
Melanie is a couple of months from getting her MBA, she works two jobs to help take care of her mom and her 6 year old niece after her sister died. Melanie has been with Daniel for three months and things are going well until the night he gets an invitation to play poker....secrets are revealed that have put Melanie in a position she never thought to be in.
I loved this story, the angst, the sexual tension, Melanie with her friends, and Jared with the people in his life, both friends and staff. It all came together in a story rich with details and character development.
Melanie’s story was also very compelling and I only wanted to see her express more of het freedom and passion with Jared.
Other than that, it had moments of romance, tenderness, passion, pain, and happiness. Good read!
