REVIEW – DIRTY SEXY PLAYER (Dirty Games #1) by Laurelin Paige (Audiobook)


Available in audio first, New York Times best-selling author Laurelin Paige’s newest red-hot romance! 

Weston King knows how to play. But wild nights and owning an extensive collection of women’s panties don’t carry the thrill they once did, so when his business partner Donovan suggests an outrageous plan to allow them to take over their competition, Wes takes him up on the offer. The crazy idea? Marry the competitor.

Elizabeth Dyson, the bride-to-be in question, is on board with the plan. She wants access to her trust fund and can only get it once she marries. Each has something the other wants – all they have to do is pretend to like each other well enough to tie the knot.

Only trouble is, playing fiancé to Elizabeth isn’t quite that simple. Wes finds her sexy and brilliant…and soon wishes their engagement wasn’t fake at all. Not that he’d ever tell her that.

But a lover boy like Wes can only stand an empty bed for so long…and even the best of players has to put down his cards eventually.

Audiobooks aren’t my first preference when wanting to get lost in a story. I always worry that the voices won’t appeal to me and that it could possibly affect my enjoyment. I love to pick a quote in the book that stood out for me and share it in my review, which is pretty hard to do with audiobooks. But I will say these are perfect if you have a long commute to work or you’re planning a road trip, which I was last weekend and this audiobook made a five and a half hour drive seem like nothing at all. I love Laurelin Paige’s stories and she didn’t disappoint with “DIRTY SEXY PLAYER”. This is a spin-off of the“Dirty Duet” series, but don’t worry if you didn’t read the duet, the story is easy to follow.


For those of you who love romances with a Sexy Billionaire Alpha male and one of your favorite tropes is “enemies to lovers”, you will want to get your hands on this as soon as possible! Elizabeth Dyson is a beautiful young heiress who, according to a stipulation in her late father’s will, must get married if she wants to inherit the family’s media empire. Donovan Kinkaid, who co-owns an Advertising Corporation with two of his close friends, reaches out to Elizabeth with a proposition. She marries his partner, Weston King, and they buy a portion of her business, while she gets to keep the rest.


Weston has been a well-renowned ladies man for quite some time and the thought of marriage is not in the least bit appealing to him, until the moment he meets Elizabeth. The attraction between the two is palpable, but they seem to end up in heated arguments whenever they’re in the same room together. The two manage to successfully appear as a young couple that’s madly in love, which is crucial as Liz’s cousin, who wants to take her father’s company away from her, is suspicious of their union and has eyes everywhere on them.

Both Weston and Liz can’t deny that deep down they are starting to develop true feelings for each other and once they finally give in to the inevitable, it’s a feeling of pure relief. The constant bickering and moments of self-doubt on both ends were starting to wear on this reader’s patience!


Book one ends on the day of the couple’s wedding and an unexpected turn of events leaves us with a huge cliffhanger!! Not sure how I’m going to be able to wait until NOVEMBER to get all the answers!

Here are my overall ratings:

Hero: 4.5
Heroine: 4
Plot: 4
Angst: 4
Steam: 5
Chemistry Between Hero & Heroine: 5

DIRTY SEXY PLAYER is currently available on Audible!!
