PLAYING FOR KEEPS: BOOK 2 IN THE SMITH SISTERS’ TRILOGY
Contemporary Interracial Romance
Rating: 4 Cups
Keirra Smith teaches seventh and eighth grade math at the local middle school. She loves the everyday challenges the students bring about.
Eric Brooks used to be a cop for the Atlanta police department until he started to feel burned out. Now he works as a deputy for Appling County.
Keirra knows she is attracted to Eric, but she continues to ignore both her attraction to him and his attempts to date her. After her father was killed in the line of duty when he was a cop, Keirra decided that she would never date one herself. But slowly Eric pulls her in, and they begin a push-and-pull relationship. Then tragedy strikes and Keirra once again finds herself at the mercy of fate when a gunman takes aim at Eric.
Once again Ms. Morris takes us on a journey through the world of the Smith triplet sisters. Playing for Keeps is the second story in this trilogy, but you do not have to read the first novel to understand this book. The struggle that Keirra has with her past and the feelings for Eric are very good depictions and were very heartfelt. Eric is like a steamroller; he just rolls right over all of Keirra’s objections and pursues her until she has to give in. A good read with a realistic storyline and believable characters.
