Synopsis from Goodreads

Bedroom games are fine … but I need a woman who won’t play with my heart.

After years in the military, I’ve faced down a lot of things, and there’s not much I shy away from. Except relationships. Because when you catch your wife in bed with another man, that tends to sour even the most hardened man against women.

When I was hired to keep surveillance on a woman with a checkered past, I went into the job anticipating the worst. But what I found was a woman who turned my head. Who made my blood heat and my body burn. A woman who made me feel alive again.

A woman who was nothing like what I expected, but everything I wanted. A woman who, it turned out, needed my protection. And wanted my touch.

And as the world fell out from under us, and everything I thought I knew shifted, there was only one reality I could hold onto—that the more I got to know her, the more I wanted her. 

But if I’m going to make her mine, I’ll have to not only keep her safe, I’ll have to prove to her that I’ve conquered my own fears and doubts. That I’m done looking into the past, and that all I want is a future—with her. 


Pretty Little Player brings all of your pirate fantasies to glorious life. The eye patch wearing, Cayden, is the stuff dreams are made of. Although he has a hard time with relationships and romance. However, his mindset is completely understandable as his background is revealed. Due to his past experiences, Cayden has become cynical and jaded which he feeds on a daily basis with his choice of career. Projecting his own baggage onto everyone else ensures he casts everyone as guilty before getting to know them on a personal level.

Gracie completely blindsides Cayden, she is utterly adorable with a soft heart; kind and caring she is exactly the type of woman Cayden needs in his life. She is also absolutely gorgeous and instils confidence in all those around her. Promoting body positivity through her modelling career, Gracie also has a side project she is fiercely protective of. Which leads Cayden to doubt her, even though his intuition screams at him that she is PERFECT.

Pretty Little Player is an intense romantic suspense story that provides food for thought regarding the population’s obsession with social media and how easy it is to divulge too much information.

Pretty Little Player is a quick read with lots of action and lots of action 😉 along with some very swoon-worthy moments.
