Play Me Series by Tracy Wolff Book Tour


Tracy Wolff’s Play Me series centers on the love story between Aria Winston, a cocktail waitress at one of Vegas’s hottest five-star casinos and Sebastian Caine, the casino owner’s son and handpicked successor. It is an erotic romance series intended for mature audiences.

Fans of Wolff’s bestselling Ethan Frost series will be excited to learn that the characters in Play Me are closely connected to Ethan Frost and Chloe Girard from Addicted and Ruined—and that Ethan and Chloe make cameo appearances in Play Me. The third installment in the Ethan Frost series Exposed, coming February 2015, will feature the characters from both series.



Play Me Wild

In the seductive first installment of an eBook original serial from the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, a woman running from her past has finally found a bit of control . . . until her powerful new boss makes her go wild.

My name is Aria Winston. I’ve fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I’m on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.

Working as a cocktail waitress at one of Vegas’s hottest five-star casinos means putting up with a ton of bad behavior from the big spenders. But it pays the bills—and that’s all that matters to Aria, who needs every last dollar to escape from her father’s destructive grasp and the brutal man he expects her to marry. But when she lashes out against a billionaire who won’t take no for an answer, she nearly loses everything—until Sebastian steps in. The owner’s son and handpicked successor, Sebastian is dark, sexy, and kinder than any rich man should be. And when he apologizes and offers to keep her job safe, Aria can’t help the way her body reacts to his. Suddenly her job, and the security it brings her, isn’t the only thing Aria wants.

Play Me is an erotic serial intended for mature audiences. Aria and Sebastian’s story continues in Play Me: Hot.

Sebastian

There are two different video clips, one that’s five minutes long and one that is twenty-four minutes. I click on the five minute one first, then watch as Rubinov walks his fingers up the thigh of a pretty redhead about twenty years his junior. From the way she’s shoving at his hand and looking around for help, she doesn’t look like she’s enjoying the attention.

Angrily, I note the way she makes eye contact with the dealer—and how the dealer very deliberately looks away. “What the hell was that?” I demand.

“I don’t know.” Todd sounds as pissed off as I feel. “David and I have different styles of running things, but neither of us are okay with customers being harassed. Even by the high rollers.”

The fact that he has to qualify it that way only makes me more annoyed. I grew up in Vegas, in a casino about two blocks up the Strip and then in this one. I went to Harvard, worked in high-finance fund-raising. I know how this rarified world works. How money gives men a false sense of control, makes men think they can have anything they want.

That doesn’t mean I have to like it.

Twenty seconds later, a cocktail waitress—the cocktail waitress, I assume—comes into view. She’s dressed in the short navy skirt, crisp white blouse and fishnets that all the cocktail waitresses here wear and I can tell right away that Todd is right. The woman really is a looker.

She’s gorgeous actually, and for a minute I’m so busy staring at her that I lose track of what it is I’m supposed to be doing. Her dark hair is shoulder length and tied back in a ponytail that only emphasizes her stunning bone structure and long, delicate neck. She’s got dark eyes, plump lips, olive skin. She also has an angry flush to her cheeks that only makes her more attractive.

As does the control over herself—and her temper—that I can tell she’s exerting.

Interested now, as much in her as in the situation, I watch the way she moves, the way she holds herself. She’s tall even without the high heels she’s wearing, at least six foot with them, all long legs and curvy hips and an ass that looks like a million bucks in that skirt. And she carries herself like she knows she’s too good for this job, too good for this place.

Shit. Is it any wonder all the rich letches hassle her? For most of the guys she comes into contact with on a daily basis, self-denial isn’t exactly a concept they’re familiar with. Hell, I’m a pretty straightforward, always-be-respectful-when-it-comes-to-women kind of guy and all I can think about is testing that control, seeing how far I can take her before she loses it completely.

But even as I’m thinking it, she does lose it completely—though not in the way I’ve spent the last couple minutes imagining. Instead, she pulls back her tray and racks the guy, her long, curvy body moving with perfect precision. The unexpectedness—even with Todd’s warning—snaps me out of my momentary stupor and I start the clip over. I watch it again, this time paying attention to what’s going on instead of how much I want to test the waitress’s control.

It only takes about thirty seconds for me to figure out that she’s doing her best to get Rubinov to stop hassling the other woman. Another thirty seconds has my temper simmering and by the time she racks him, I’m furious that I hadn’t been there to do it for her.

The guy’s a bastard of the first order.

I play the footage one more time, just to make sure I’ve caught every nuance of the situation that I can. Then I play the longer video, watching as the waitress goes over to security, nodding toward Rubinov and the girl.

So she did try to report it, did try to get help. And the security guard turned her away. The knowledge makes the anger simmering in my veins burn hotter and higher. They stripped her of control, left her out there alone with no alternative but to do what she did. And then fired her for it.

No. Absolutely not. Maybe that’s how things went on my father’s watch, but he’s not in charge anymore. I am. And that’s not how things are going to go around here.

Shannan☆☆☆☆
Play Me Wild is laying a good foundation for the series. Sebastian is intriguing. Aria has some issues in her past. The chemistry between the two is undeniable. I love that the first book isn't all about sex, I am loving the buildup.

Can't wait to see what book #2 holds.


Angie☆☆☆☆
This is the first book in a serial. We meet Aria Winston, a cocktail waitress and Sebastian Caine, casino owner. When Aria loses her temper at work one night she thought she had lost her job. Sebastian isn’t like his father, who used to run the casino, he is much different. Sebastian tells Aria she hasn’t lost her job and apologizes for the way things were handled. What happens next sets the whole series in motion.

Characters: Well written and believable.
Sex: No
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes


Johanna☆☆☆☆
Interesting first installment, first two characters come into play. Waitress Aria, and Casino owner Sebastian. First part is kind of cat and mouse, just introduces the characters and sets the stage for what appears to be the start of a relationship. Definitely intrigued! Overall entertainment is four stars.


Stephanie☆☆☆☆
Play Me Wild is well written and has great character chemistry. It's a great start to a series and I got through it rather quickly. The sparks flying between Sebastian, the sexy, control demanding, reluctant heir to a poplar Vegas casino and Aria, a sultry cocktail waitress escaping her past has craving to see how hot things get in Play Me #2.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the first in a series of five installments making up a whole.

A quick introduction to the backgrounds of our leads – Aria and Sebastian – and an event which causes them to meet. And amazingly that is enough to get the intrigue started, and the chemistry buzzing. There are undercurrents of BDSM, but I would say definitely of the light variety ‘physically,’ more mind games and illusions of control. Cannot wait to get started on book 2.




Play Me Hot

Return to a world of secrets and desires. In the sultry second installment of an eBook original serial from the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, Aria and Sebastian turn up the heat. But will they get burned?

My name is Aria Winston. I’ve fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I’m on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.

If getting tangled up with her new boss is wrong, Aria doesn’t want to be right. Powerful men usually have a way of thinking they can take whatever they want while giving nothing back, but Sebastian is different. He’s gentle with her body. Rough in all the right places. And hot enough to make Aria break every last rule she’s set for herself. But with her history, it’ll take more than mind-blowing sex to heal the pain deep inside . . . no matter how good Sebastian’s intentions are. She’s spent her entire life fighting for control of her own life, and no one’s going to take that from her. But the more time she spends in Sebastian’s world, the deeper she’s drawn into his sensual games.

Play Me is an erotic serial intended for mature audiences. Aria and Sebastian’s story continues in Play Me: Hard.

Shannan☆☆☆☆
Play Me Hot picks up right at the end of Play Me Wild.

"Let go, baby. Let go. I'm right here to catch you."

The chemistry is off the charts. Sebastian and Aria ignite in this one. There is more background revealed and finally yes there is sex.

I can't wait to see where #3 goes.


Angie☆☆☆☆
This is the second book in a serial. This book goes by fast and it is hot!!! They say you shouldn’t hook up with your boss but when your boss is Sebastian, how can you say no?

Characters: Well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes


Johanna☆☆☆☆☆
Play Me Hot is such a good title for this installment. Rawr! I felt the heat from these erotic scenes! In this part Sebastian and Aria develop a relationship pretty quickly, and the chemistry is explosive. The cover on this one is amazing. Overall entertainment is five stars.


Stephanie☆☆☆
Play Me Hot was just that HOT. The spark between Sebastian and Aria picked up right where Play Me Wild left off and the heat only intensified. I was hoping to get a little more plot. I need to know what happens next between Aria and Sebastian. Will he find out the past that she is so desperately trying to free herself from? Thankfully, I don't have to wait for Play Me Hard.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the second in a series of 5 and book 1 needs to be read first.

The chemistry between Aria and Sebastian is electrifying. The scene in his office gives us an insight into his plans, and the hottest, most sensual first encounter. As his true nature is revealed, future passionate encounters seem inevitable.

It is a good thing that book 3 is on my Kindle as I want to read on now. This episode just asks more questions than it answers.




Play Me Hard

No one ever said love is easy. In the third installment of an eBook original serial from the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, Aria and Sebastian discover that building trust might be harder than they ever imagined.

My name is Aria Winston. I’ve fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I’m on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.

Ever since taking Aria under his wing and into his seductive domain, Sebastian hasn’t been able to think straight. Their chemistry is intoxicating. Their power exchange is exhilarating. And the sex leaves them both absolutely exhausted. But if there’s one thing Sebastian does know, it’s that he needs to protect this strong yet vulnerable woman. Because she has depths that are unknown—even to her. Aria has worked hard to establish herself as anything but submissive. That isn’t who she is, or who she wants to be. So why does it feel so sweet to give up control . . . and so intense when Sebastian takes care of needs she doesn’t even realize she has? But he has needs of his own—and secrets that run just as dark and deep as Aria’s.

Play Me is an erotic serial intended for mature audiences. Aria and Sebastian’s story continues in Play Me: Real.

Shannan☆☆☆☆
I think this one is my favorite so far. We get to see deeper into Aria's and Sebastian's past. Everyone has something they don't want known. It's not just about the sex between them, they are getting depth to the characters and the relationship.

I like the hint of the unknown.


Angie☆☆☆☆
This is the third book in a serial. Aria and Sebastian both have secrets and we get to see a glimpse of those secrets and more hot steamy sex!

Characters: Well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes


Johanna☆☆☆☆
Well we learned in this one that everyone seems to be carrying their own secrets, and Sebastian and Aria further their relationship. The sex scenes are erotic and carry a romantic feel. We also get a tidbit from Ethan Frost and how Sebastian ties in with his story. Turning out to be a pretty great serial so far. Overall entertainment is four stars.


Stephanie☆☆☆☆
Play Me Hard had a little taste of the intrigue I felt was missing in Play Me Hot. Aria learns she isn't the only one running from her past in a cliff hanger that had my jaw hitting the floor. The chemistry and heat between Sebastian and Aria only seems to get better as things progress in the story.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the third in a series of 5 and they need to be read in order.

Things are getting more complicated in both their worlds, and clearly the plot is thickening. Flat 109 is going to prove significant somehow ... There are some fabulous touches when Aria and Sebastian are together. Their conversations have progressed from stunned disbelief, but remain guarded.

The writing is smooth and the dialogue catchy. Thank goodness that book 4 is waiting for me.




Play Me Real

How do you know when something’s real? In the steamy fourth installment of an eBook original serial from the New York Times bestselling author of Ruined and Addicted, a devastating betrayal unravels a fierce yet tender connection.

My name is Aria Winston. I’ve fought desperately to escape the seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Now I’m on my own, in control of my own life and my own destiny . . . just the way I like it. Until Sebastian Caine changes everything.

Aria has learned to play Sebastian’s game. She’s given him control, taken it back, and let him push her farther than she ever imagined she could go. But when Sebastian’s past comes to light, Aria receives a glimpse behind the facade—a revelation that disturbs her even as it makes her feel closer to this simmering, complicated man. Finally she comes to understand the real reason why Sebastian feels the need to dominate everything in his path. But Aria has a tortured history, too. And together they’re a dangerous combination. Now she’s the one pushing Sebastian to the breaking point . . . and if one of them burns up, they’ll both go down together.

Play Me is an erotic serial intended for mature audiences. Aria and Sebastian’s story concludes in Play Me: Right.

Shannan☆☆☆
I am enjoying where the series is going, the buildup. We are finally finding out what makes Sebastian tick, the secrets he carries. I can't wait to see how it ends!


Angie☆☆☆☆
This is the fourth book in a serial. Sebastian’s secret is reveled and it wasn’t what I thought it would be. Of course there is more steamy sex!

Characters: Well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes


Johanna☆☆☆☆
Whoa! That was some heavy stuff. We sure are keeping it real in this part. Excellent part, my mind is still in a maelstrom of images. Well we hear Sebastian’s deal, so this next part should be Aria’s. Overall entertainment is four stars.


Stephanie☆☆☆☆
I'm really starting to enjoy where this series is going. The dark secret Sebastian thought was hidden in his past comes to light in Play Me Real. Will the intensity between them be enough to keep the fire going?


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the fourth in a series of five books – so it is definitely hotting up!

Each episode has a mixture of plot and passion. And both seem to be hotting up in equal measure. The intrigue is building nicely, so I assume a big reveal in book 5 is in the cards. We learn quite a lot about Sebastian's past, with some hints to Aria's family too. The relationship between the two is getting ever more intense – I would advise that you read this when alone – especially if you are inclined to blush as you get turned on ...

Looking forward to the final installment.




Play Me Right

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.

Shannan☆☆☆
I was disappointed with this one. Most of the questions from earlier books were answered but now I'm just left with more. I guess I expected more of a conclusion than what I got. I liked the first few books better than these last two. It seemed to become all about the sex between Sebastian and Aria. I think it needed more depth. The story was there but it wasn't the focal point.

These were my first reads from Ms. Wolff. With the little glimpse of Ethan Frost I got I definitely think that is a series I would like to check out!


Angie☆☆☆☆
This is the fifth book in a serial. Aria’s secret is revealed and Sebastian is still by her side. Together they make a plan to set things straight. I wasn’t thrilled with the ending of this book, I thought there could have been more to it; however it was a fast-paced series with lots of sex.

Characters: Well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes


Johanna☆☆☆☆
I enjoyed reading this serial, and I hope we can get more about these two. I feel the book made everything come out but I think the author could have went a bit further. I guess we will have to wait for more additions. This finally concludes their ideas on having a relationship, and everything seems to be out in the open. My overall entertainment is four stars.


Stephanie☆☆☆☆
Aria tells Sebastian of her past and her secrets in Play Me Right and it was not what I was expecting. I really enjoyed this series and feel some mixed emotions as it came to an end. Please tell me there is more Sebastian and Aria coming soon. I feel as though we are given just a taste of their story and I need to know what happens!


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the last in a series of episodic novellas. They most definitely need to be read in order! They are an easy read, with plenty of back story and some of the hottest, simplest love scenes I can remember reading – and I read a lot!

As everything starts to unravel, the chance to restore order also presents itself. For two characters who are far too quick to assume guilt, it takes family members to straighten out their logic. And although this may be the last in the series, it is easy to see that this storyline could go further. I'm hopeful of the cameo that is promised at the end.




Tracy Wolff lives with four men, teaches writing to local college students and spends as much time as she can manage immersed in worlds of her own creation. Married to the alpha hero of her dreams for twelve years, she is the mother of three young sons who spend most of their time trying to make her as crazy as possible.
