Playing Away

Playing Away

SHE’S PLAYING WITH FIRE…

The unforgettable debut novel from Adele Parks, author of the No. 1 ebook bestseller, The Stranger In My Home. Playing Away became an instant bestseller, is irresistible, unputdownable and the nearest thing you’ll get to an affair without actually having one…

Connie Green’s life should be perfect. She’s married to gentle, loving Luke, has a good job and really fabulous friends. She thinks she can’t be happier.

But she’s just met John Harding.

Spectacularly unsuitable and overwhelmingly sexy, he’s about to destroy her peace of mind and her happily ever after, yet she just can’t seem to resist.

And to have any chance of clearing her head, Connie needs to get out of John’s bed…

What readers are saying about Playing Away:

‘A refreshingly honest look at the lives of thirty-somethings who have been through the Bridget Jones singleton era, and have moved on. Totally engagingI couldn’t put it down!

‘I was amused, touched, romanced, saddened and thrilled by the story from start to finish. Totally unputdownable!
