Ever since they were young, it has always been Jane and her two best friends, Rys and William Holden, against the world. With her two best friends in her life, there isn’t anything she can’t overcome, even the horrors and secrets that make up her life. Jane does have one small problem; over the years her friendship has turned into a deep and binding love for both brothers equally.

Rys and William have loved Jane for what seems like forever but they both think that they aren’t good enough and that she deserves more than they can ever give her. It’s better to be platonic friends than to ruin a lifetime of friendship. Or is it?

Author Jenika Snow packs quite a punch in Play with Fire, a story that is filled with steamy, poignant, sobering and surprising action, dialogue ,and well-crafted characters who are so fascinating and likeable that they make the reader’s heart race in anticipation of each new scene. The author superbly ventures into deep waters with the childhood abuse and humiliation that Jane has lived through at the hands of her father and to the townspeople but the author writes in such a way she captures the heartache and despair but doesn’t let it overshadow Jane’s character. Readers will adore Jane’s remarkable, realistic and giving personality as well as the two brothers who want nothing more than to take care of and love the woman of their dreams. It’s Williams touching and emotional traits along with Rys take charge, kick-butt personality that Jane needs and loves that works to help heal her soul. The bond between Jane, Rys and William is portrayed realistically, giving the readers glimpses of childhood memories the friends have shared along with the growing sexual tension and feelings that have developed as they all got older. The twists and turns the story takes makes are necessary to put some old ghosts to rest as well as to strengthen the relationship between Jane and her men.

I can’t wait to see what’s next in this exciting series!
