Review by Tiger Lily

Prairie dogs may be low on the food chain, but Riley Cates is anything but. More man than dawg, he’s finally carved his place in Barkus. Until Tara walks back into his life. Now there’s no turning back, because once Riley has his taste, he’ll never be able to let her go.

Tara’s drawn to the one man who holds her soul, her happiness in his paws. And no matter what happens, this time, she’s playing for keeps.

Sometimes the one that got away is the one that’s coming back into your life. It’s up to you to decide to walk away, or in the case of Riley and Tara, they are Playing for Keeps.

Ms. Montgomery writes an intriguing addition to the Dawg Town series. Her story, Playing for Keeps is the conclusion of a relationship that started five years prior. I liked the idea of using a lost love and the power of redemption. Seeing the play between Riley and Tara kept the reader engaged in the story. You wanted to see them get back together and be stronger the second time around.

Riley made a great hero because he didn’t just protect Tara, but he made her his equal partner. She controlled her destiny. It was up to her if they made it as a couple. Very sexy, indeed. Despite his somewhat brusque treatment of Tara, the passion between them sizzled. This wasn’t just sex, it was a reconnection of two souls meant to be.

Though the antagonist seemed more like a specter hovering over them, rather than a foe to fight, but I liked how Riley and Tara made it beyond their past.

If you want to read a fun yet steamy story about accepting someone for who they truly are despite what the others say, then you need to get a copy of Dawg Town: Playing for Keeps. I give this story 4 cherries.
