This second book in the series delves *into some very needed but often kept uiet difficulties The way the Author handled the journey between *some very needed but often kept uiet difficulties The way the Author handled the journey between and Cilla "was both poignant and direct Thank ou for showing us that even in the midst of personal mess love can " both poignant and direct Thank ou for showing us that even in the midst of personal mess love can Nice story line but under developed Malcolm and Cilla relationship was okay The story about Malcom s daughter Cleo going out with her mother s boyfriend that night that part was acceptable and believable But the author went from a drug addict mother who would do anything to get a hit to the child being part of a sex crime site really But if Miss Millo wants to incorporate that as part of her story line it needs to be developed As I was reading the book the Shanell s story was too sporadic because she keeps popping in and out of the story I got that she is on drugs but Ms Millo her story line also needs to be developed Nice touch with the relationship that Cilla and Miss Cobb Malcom mother had Also at the end with Shanell speaking to CillaI would not recommend this bookLisa RampersadAAMBC Reviewer It Was All Worth ItPriscilla Cilla Jameson walks into her local Starbucks to purchase her morning Java to jump start her day and Malcolm Cobb spots her as he s having his coffee after a morning run and he knows he has to meet her What will become of these two Cilla is not fond of ready made families and Malcolm wonders if he should play or stay away I so enjoyed Playing for Keeps There was so much drama From the beginning the twists and turns held my attention I had to keep reading to see how it all turned out I loved the way Deborah Fletcher Mello dealt with the subjects of child exploitation and addictions to drugs and alcoholI highly recommend Playing for Keeps as well as the previous novel Playing with Fire Taryn and Romeo s story Reviewed by Lisa M45 St. As an accomplished architect single dad of teenage twin girls and co owner of The Playground Raleigh's hottest jazz and blues club it's an understatement to say Malcolm Cobb has his hands full Add to that an ex wife who knows how to bring the drama it's no surprise he has little time or inclination for a personal.
