Playing for Keeps, Miami Piranhas, Book 1 By: Beth Bolden Narrated by: Darcy Stark

"Absolutely LOVED the narrator’s enthusiasm!!" Tatted_book_freak listened to Playing For Keeps and shares their review.

From the blurb:

Sebastian Howard is the best damn cornerback in the NFL.

Or at least he was.

Age and injuries have taken a toll, and while most people have written him off, Sebastian isn’t ready to acknowledge that at only 32, he’s already in the twilight of his career.

He signs with the Miami Piranhas intending to prove everyone wrong, only to realize that the head coach’s son, out-and-proud Beau Dawson, doesn’t believe he can.

Beau is infuriating but brilliant, and when he offers to help him on the field, Sebastian wants to say yes, but there’s one thing stopping him: the unexpected, inconvenient, and all-consuming crush he doesn’t want to have on Beau.

But Beau isn’t interested in playing it safe, with football or with anything else, and soon they’re embroiled in a hot—and secret—affair that would finish Sebastian’s career if Coach Dawson found out.

As Sebastian falls harder for Beau, he begins to realize that actually the worst thing in the world isn’t getting benched, but losing the man he loves.

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

The physical copy of this book was fun and exciting, but the audio rendition was absolute perfection! 

Darcy Stark amazes me with their vocals, and how they differentiated distinctly between the characters was astonishing! Every emotion was captured, personalities were formed, and bonds were created amongst the players.  

Ten stars for bringing this romance to life!! (and not too bad with that Tennessee accent, Darcy).

Rating: 5 Stars

Lesetiger's Review:

From the beginning, I felt the attraction that exists between the two. It took a while for them to get closer and a friendship slowly developed. I enjoyed following the further development of their relationship.

I love sports romance and this book is no exception. There was enough sports and interesting characters to make this book an enjoyable read.

The audiobook was narrated by Darcy Stark who is a fantastic narrator. He was a pleasure to listen to. He portrayed Sebastian, Beau and the other characters well along with their emotions and he brought the book to life.

I am already looking forward to more audiobooks in this series!
