Title: Play Me
By: Diane Alberts
Series: Take a Chance #3
Even the best-laid plans can go awry.
Single-mom Kiersten Worth knows a bottle of champagne and night of hot, no-strings-attached sex is the perfect solution to her jilted bride blues…and Garrett Kelly, long-time friend and her teenaged son’s sexy basketball coach, is just the stud for the job.
Garrett wants more from the elusive temptress than a casual affair, but he never expects it to come in the form of an unexpected pregnancy. When he proposes an unorthodox solution—move in and raise their baby together—Kiersten has to decide whether to let down her guard and open her heart to the man who secretly loved her for years, or risk losing his tender embrace for good.

A Note from Diane Alberts
Things that bring you back for MOREWhen people ask me what type of authors inspire me, I often draw a blank. Not because there isn’t anyone—but because there are so many. It’s so hard to try to narrow down which few authors out of the hundreds I read and adore could have shaped me into the author I am today. So instead, I’ll talk about the type of writing that inspires me.
I love it when you can pick a book up and instantly connect with the characters. I love knowing that you can lose yourself in this fictional world that an author created, and feel so absorbed in it that the characters feel real to you. Heck, sometimes you feel as if you are the heroine, and the hero sweeps you off your feet along with her.
I try to remember the things that drew me to an author in particular. Maybe it’s the way her heroes are always caring yet totally alpha. Maybe it’s the way she always puts a touch of amusement into even the most dire circumstances. Maybe it’s the hot bedroom scenes that bring me back for more.
Whatever it might be, there’s always something that makes me need to read more of her books. More of her characters and worlds.
If not for that…why would people come back at all, right?
I’d love to know—what was the last thing that made you irrevocably fall in love with a writer, and who was it?
