This delicious romantic suspense tale is an entertaining addition to the series which features the sexy men who live in Prescott, Arizona. It is delightful that there are so many members of the McBride clan and all of them are yummy specimens of manhood. The tension ratchets up in this exciting tale which both whets one’s appetite for yummy desserts and provides an intriguing murder mystery even as one gets glimpses of some of the beautiful scenery and picturesque regions of Arizona. The sensual scenes provide a wonderful addition to this exciting tale and I look forward to more stories in this series.
“Playing With You” by Cheyenne McCray is part of the ‘Riding Tall’ series which centers around Ricki Sparks, owner of Sweet Things bakery who has moved to Prescott from Phoenix and made a fresh start on her life. Garrett McBride, private investigator, is pleasantly surprised to discover that his blind date is the attractive baker he visits most mornings. Their relationship rapidly heats up but Ricki’s new friend Deena doesn’t seem as happy about it as everyone else seems to be, perhaps because she has her own agenda. Garrett may have to call upon all of his investigative skills to protect the woman he’s come to care deeply for but even that may not be enough.
Ricki Sparks knows she can make a mean red velvet cake but can’t believe she’s let herself be talked into a blind date. When she opens the door to see the man she’s been secretly sweet on since the first day he walked into her bakery, she fears her heart will be demolished. At least she knows she’s in for a wild ride.
With a past like his, private investigator Garrett McBride doesn’t feel he’s worthy of a good woman’s love. Especially not Ricki, the sweet, beautiful baker. But its not just her delectable baked goods that keep him coming back and it isn’t long before he admits to himself that he wants her for his own. He never suspects that the greatest danger to her may come not from himself, but from the deceitful woman Ricki has befriended.
Love may not be the only thing Ricki falls into along the way as she finds herself in a world of deceit and betrayal that may cost her life. While Ricki is fighting for her life, Garrett must find her, before it’s too late.
