My Review:

Playing for Keeps (Indianapolis Eagles, #3)Playing for Keeps by Samantha Lind

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love, love, loved Richard and Maddy! Friends, then lovers, for years, they both hid their true feelings from each other, out of fear that it was one sided! So much time wasted!

Maddy is a sports agent, a strong, independent woman, in a male dominated field. She knows who she is and what she wants from life. But her love life is just…complicated! She and Richard have had a friends with benefits relationship for years, and she has slowly developed feelings for him. Feelings she thinks have no chance of being returned. She has lived in limbo for a long time, neither moving forward in her relationship, nor moving on to something else.

Richard is a professional hockey player. He has strong feelings for Maddy, wants more with her, wants everything with her, but will take whatever she will give him. He doesn’t want to rock the boat, for fear that he will loose it all.

This story takes the friends to lovers theme to a whole new level! I love supportive Richard is when Maddy’s life spirals out of control. They are so perfect for each other! I love how, even though this is a sports romance, that isn’t the focus of the story. It’s about romance, and how a real love is about support and family. And did I say that I love, love, love Richard and Maddy?!?
