Part of a serial? Yes.
Cliffhanger? No, but considering this is a spinoff of another series, some sub-plots don’t end here.

Good things never have to end. Tracy Wolff, the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, brings her eBook original serial to an unforgettable climax in Play Me’s sensational finale . . . for now.
My name is Aria Winston. I’ve fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I’m in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . but my future belongs to Sebastian Caine.
Technically, Aria may still be in one piece, but she’s feeling pretty damn close to broken. While she knows Sebastian would die before hurting her, their intense, steamy encounters have opened up old wounds in them both. Now Aria is considering the unthinkable: walking away again—this time to save Sebastian from the pain she knows her past will cause him. But Sebastian’s the one who set her free in the first place—how can she not show him the same care and compassion? Because, in the end, being together forever is the only thing that feels right.
Play Me is an erotic serial intended for mature audiences.
I received this book via Netgalley for an honest review.
This is the last book in the Play Me serial. I’m not as thrilled with this last part as I am with the rest of the serial.
If you’re wondering if I enjoyed reading this fifth part, the answer is yes. I really enjoyed it, but it’s a little of a let down regarding a few things.
Even though it’s a great conclusion to the story considering the characters’ story arc, but the thing is, the ending of a few plot things isn’t fully reached. I’m slow so I didn’t realize that this serial is actually a spin off story of the Ethan Frost series—I have the first book, but I still have to read it. What does that mean? It means that a certain plot I was very much looking forward to isn’t going to an end in this serial. For me, it’s a let down even though I’m sure fan of this author and the Ethan Frost series must be delighted.
Is it frustrating from my standpoint? Yes, but it doesn’t ruin the reading experience or the enjoyment of this serial, so don’t worry.
Now, let me talk about the atmosphere of this last part…
It’s a little bit more mushy, fluffy than I hoped it would be. It’s kind of a different atmosphere and somehow I had a harder time buying it. Though, the characters are still as amazing as usual, the writing is great and everything is flowing wonderfully. I think I wasn’t expecting it to be so “easy“ for Sebastian and Aria. Call me twisted. 😉
As usual in this serial, it’s a fast paced installment, with good writing and a character evolution undeniable. Even though I don’t like this last installment as much as the rest of the serial, I still recommend this serial for erotica readers. I do think it’s one you shouldn’t avoid.
What I would have loved to see more in this installment or in the serial? More of Sebastian’s and Aria’s family. We’re told a lot of things, but we don’t see much. But it’s a serial and the format being this short implies that some things aren’t going to be shown.
