About this ebook

The first time I meet Madison Shore, I’m greeted by her knickers. She’s upside down and trying to untangle herself from my chair at a wedding.


I get to see a whole lot more of her later that night.


The second time I meet Madison Shore is in my London office. Turns out she’s a journalist writing an article about me.


To keep control of my company, I need to convince people I’m more serious about business than my playboy reputation suggests. Madison holds my future in her hands.


Now I just need to convince the woman I took to bed on Saturday night that I'm not the player everyone thinks I am.


Private Player is a stand-alone novel.

5 star Review Private Player by Louise Bay Meeting at a mutual friends’ wedding, sparks fly between Madison Shore and Nathan Cove and in fact their meet cute was hysterical. When I first read the blurb for this book it had me laughing out loud and I knew I had to read it. To be honest it took me a little while to warm up to these characters but once I did, it was full speed ahead. After a passionate one night stand they part ways not expecting to meet again. Both are horrified when they learn that Madison has been charged with writing an article on the super successful Nathan. He needs to clean up his reputation and his board of directors are insisting that he allow her to shadow him at his meetings both professionally and personally. As they get to know one another they both realize there is more to one another than they first thought. Can they resist the attraction that seems to be getting harder to ignore. One of my favourite parts of this story was the relationship that Nathan has with his family. It was heart warming and the camaraderie and witty banter between Nathan and his brothers was humorous.

Louise Bay romances just make me happy and Private Player is no exception. This great story of Nathan and Madison is fantastic. Two people who meet at their prospective best friends wedding, have 1 fabulous night together and then each walking away but of course nothing in a good romance novel is every that easy. They meet again when Madison ends up in his office tasked to write a story about the playboy, now with his family in tow the story goes to the next level. I loved Madison and Nathan but I do have to say I felt their romance was a little rushed. Told in dual POVs we get both sides of the story which I love. Through in some old friends we have met before we get a solid romance that I throughly enjoyed.

A chance meeting at a mutual friends wedding leads to a night of passion for Nathan Cove and Madison Stone, it was only meant to be one night so what happens when they come face to face when Madison is asked to write an article on how successful Nathan is. He needs positive press and she needs this article to secure a job but will they be totally honest with each other and what happens when feelings come into play……… I loved this couple, I fell hard and fast for Nathan and I adored Madison, add in the family and friends that all have a part to play and you get an entertaining read. This book ticked all my boxes, I swooned, I smiled, I giggled and I sighed a lot throughout this wonderful read so If you ate looking for an entertaining read that will leave you with a smile on your face look no further than Private Player.
