My Review for Playing:
3 1/2-4 stars
So after Tempting (the first book), I was hoping Walker would be a great book and it was going pretty well.
Walker- another tattoo parlor owner, self-described man whore, and friend of Brendon
Iris- college student, finding herself, and 3 months sober
Walker and Iris just meet and decide to be screw buddies. Walker has a history of his sister doing drugs and such and he wants nothing more to do with people that have an addiction. So he has no idea about Iris’s past. But since they are not supposed to have that type of relationship she does not in trust him with that information right away.
Again it seems Crystal likes to bring real life into her books. There is quite a bit of drama in her books. I for one don’t mind a little bit but this is a bit much. Again this story was better than Tempting but I would not do a reread.
I voluntarily read an advance reader copy for my honest review.

My Review for Tempting:
So I wanted to love this book, but it was like reading a soap opera. There is just too much drama.
Kaylee- is under age and in love with Brendon her best friends brother. It is also mentioned that she is on meds and suffers from depression.
Brendon- is older, a tattoo business owner and highly attracted to Kaylee.
When Kaylee has to move into Brendon’s house their relationship gets strained due to their sexual wants. But Brendan and Kaylee have many issues they need to get over including her age.
I just couldn’t get over the constant reminder of how much they want each other but can’t due to whatever reason. There was always a reason. Even in the end, there was a reason Kaylee couldn’t live with him. I mean come on. It was too much like real life for me.
