              New York Times bestselling author Lara Adrian returns to the sizzling, emotional world of the 100 Series with Play My Game, a contemporary romance between a tormented, brilliant painter and the beauty he is determined to have at any cost. She stands out like a flame in the dark. ...Out of place in my orbit, she is a bright splash of color in an abyss of darkness. An innocent in a den of sin. And I, Jared Rush, am a master of corruption. Like my paintings-dark, carnal images that have crowned me the king of the avant-garde art world while also making me a very rich man-I don't flinch away from my baser instincts. And now, every one of those instincts is hungry for the fresh-faced beauty who made the mistake of wandering into my lair. I don't know her name, but that's inconsequential. I know who she belongs to. And while she has nothing to do with the bad blood that's been festering inside me for decades, I can't help thinking about that old, unsettled score. I'm thinking about payback. And I already have a price in mind. One that begins with her. When it comes to getting what I want, I always play to win. But in the end, will the cost of my vengeance be more than I can bear to lose? While this novel is Book 5 in the 100 Series, featuring characters introduced in earlier books, PLAY MY GAME can be read as a complete standalone with a swoon-worthy HEA and no cliffhangers.
