Playing the Playboy (Heirs of Damon #2) by Noelle Adams

Playing the Playboy (Heirs of Damon Book 2)


Laurel will do anything to save her Santorini inn from the powerful Damon family, and that includes manipulating Andrew Damon, the man they’ve sent to get her off the property. Andrew might have a reputation for being irresistible to women, but she won’t have any problem resisting him. This is war, after all, and the Damons drew their weapons first.

Andrew has spent most of his life chasing women and wasting time, but he’s determined to do his duty by his family, even if that means ousting an infuriating (and gorgeous) widow from the inn that legally belongs to the Damons. He doesn’t expect to fall for her. And he definitely doesn’t expect to discover that he’s been played.


Playing the Playboy is the second story in the Heirs of Damon series, but the third one I have read. I really enjoyed book three and four and this one was good but just not as good as them. I didn't like Andrew as much as I liked Jonathan and Ben's stories.

Playing the Playboy was a good read, I did enjoy it, but it was just a light read for me. I didn't get as attached to the characters and the storyline was light fun. Laurel is living in Greece running her inn that her deceased husband gave her. She has been doing her best to keep it up and running and she loves living there. Her husband left her with a lot of debt and such so she is trying to keep the one thing she still has - her inn. When the Damon's come after her telling her the inn doesn't belong to her she is determined to fight them for it. After all it is her inn.

The Damon's acquired the inn a while ago, but it has only recently come to their attention that someone else thinks they own it. They have tried to discuss this with Laurel but she is not budging. They send Andrew to Greece to figure everything out and get the whole inn situation taken care off. They just need Laurel out of there as it is their inn.

At first Laurel decides she is going to play dirty and get some stuff to hold over the Damon's heads, but she cannot go through with it. Then she is attracted to Andrew and she really starts to like him as a person. Andrew falls for Laurel as well so things get a bit tricky. After all Andrew doesn't want to see Laurel thrown out with nothing, but he also doesn't want to disappoint his family. He tries to be fair and figure out some way for them both to be happy, but it is hard.

The two of them do work well together and there are some rough patches before they are able to work everything out. Laurel has what looks like a shady past and that causes some issues. I mean she did marry a much older man so that alone was suspect from the beginning. They eventually work it out and it was fun, but I just can't help but think of the other two books and how much more I loved those stories. This one was good, just not as good.
