4 Stars

Charlotte Belmont almost lost her life when she tried to protect someone else’s, and although she would do it again, not everyone in her life was, or ever will be, happy with her decision… 

Dalton Prescott has made his interest in Charlie very clear, but getting her to open up and trust him feels like a losing game, every time he attempts it…


Playing for Keeps was a sweet, sexy, and emotionally fulfilling read in the incredible Hope Valley series. Charlotte and Dalton’s love story was all about redemption and giving yourself the life you deserve… while accepting the love of someone who deserves you right back…

Charlotte feels like her life has been tainted with one bad decision after another, with her last one being so bad that it put her in the hospital with a gunshot wound. And while she is used to finding a way to stand back up and pick up the pieces of her life, Charlie vows that this time will be different, and she is swearing off men to prove it… 

Dalton blames himself for Charlie’s injury, and questions the choices she made that lead up to it, namely her slipping his protective watch to run to a certified madman. And while the answers he needs are anything but forthcoming, Dalton refuses to let Charlie slip through his fingers, ever again…

I really enjoyed this book! Charlie and Dalton’s story had just enough angst and sexiness to keep the pages turning, while the emotional development paved the way for a healthy, lasting relationship that they both undoubtably deserved. I also adored the friendships in this book, and Dalton’s family was such an incredible gift to the previous and painfully solitary life of Charlie.

This was another great read in the entertaining Hope Valley series! I love every single character in which we have been introduced to so far, and Charlie and Dalton are no exception! And while I am still savoring this latest book in the series… I am beyond excited to see what will come next in Hope Valley!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
