„All I ever wanted was to be bad with you.”


Oh my heart… Despite the emotional beating it took, it’s full right now. There are no words that could express how much I love Jamie and Barbette. These two, like star-crossed lovers, made me feel longing and disappointment they both felt. But they also gave me hope, because you could feel the connection and passion they have for each other. TPATP is a perfect second chance/enemies to lovers romance, full of angst, steam and suspense.


I fell for Jamie already in the first book in the When Rivals Play series, but in The Punk and The Plaything I gave him my whole self. He’s so much more than a flirt and troblemaker we have known so far. He has a bit of vulnerability in him that makes you ready to fulfill his every request. But don’t be fooled, this guy can also be stubborn as a mule, determined and mean like nobody else. Jamie always gets what he wants and nothing gets in his way to achieve it, even if years divide him from his goal. This part also showed Bette from a completely new angle. Not so long ago I told my friend that Bebe would have to try really hard to make me warm up to Barbette, but I didn’t expect in my life to finish reading this book with such a massive girl-crush. I love Bee. Her strength, persistence not to break and for the warmth she hides behind a wall of ice. She’s a real Queen Bee, without even trying.

Although we are witnessing a constant banter and insults between Bette and Jamie most of the time, the electrifying chemistry between them is simply beyond words. The quarrels of lovers are the renewal of love- well, Bebe Reid took this saying to a whole new level. These two are simply combustible.


The Punk and The Plaything is everything I hoped for and so much more. I was immersed with this story from the very beginning and I couldn’t put it down. Bette and Jamie are now my favorite couple from Blackwood Keep. Reid described their story perfectly, unfolding all the mysteries and secrets step by step, keeping me on the edge of the seat with bated breath. TPATP is simply brilliant.



I will give away my kidney for the opportunity to read The Prince and The Pawn right now. Someone please make it happen.




The Punk and The Plaything, the third romantic standalone in the When Rivals Play series by B.B. Reid.


Never trust a nice ass and a smile. That girl is definitely poison.

When I first came to Blackwood Keep, I was just looking for a thrill.

Instead, I found a beautiful fraud—a tomboy my wildest dreams couldn’t conjure.

Bee didn’t just run with boys; she ran the boys. It was only a matter of time before I gave chase.

It took one summer for me to win her over and two to lose her forever.

My summer love turned ice queen. Without heart or thought, she ruined me.

Four years and an ocean between us, I still can’t forget that she chose my cousin…so I won’t.

“Well, isn’t this the most delicious surprise.”

My head confirmed what my eyes were showing me, but my stubborn heart still refused to believe. Jamie was back from Ireland? Why hadn’t Ever told me? Neither of those answers seemed to matter as much as why Jamie was back.

The short sleeves of the button up he wore were rolled and bunched at the shoulders, displaying the muscles he’d grown since I’d last seen him four years ago. The white cotton only pronounced his tanned skin. He’d left the buttons undone, allowing anyone who laid eyes on him to see his hard chest and defined abs…and the many tattoos that covered them. Most of them were angry and aggressive, almost scary as if he were showing off his demons for anyone to see. Recalling my sweet Jamie from long ago, and what happened the last time I’d seen him, I knew I was responsible for every one of them.

Gone was the gentle boy next door with a full mop of hair, a lanky body, and an easy smile. This boy standing before me was darker, edgier…more tragic to my lonely, fragile heart. Was that yearning burning in the pit of my stomach or fear of the unknown? Because I didn’t know this Jamie, and judging by the wicked gleam in his eyes as he flashed that mocking grin, I didn’t want to know.

“What the hell are you doing back here?”

“Is that any way to greet your first love? I got to say”—his gaze slowly traced every dip and curve of my body—“I love how well you’ve grown up, Bette.”

“First love?” I scoffed, even though it felt like he’d stolen my breath. “You were hardly that.”

“Then what was I?” he challenged, backing me against the opposite wall. “I’m breathless to hear more of your lies.”

“You were nothing.”

He flashed me that sad, beautiful smile I hadn’t realized I’d missed so much. I stood perfectly still as his wolfish gaze ate me up. As close as he stood now, he wouldn’t miss a single fucking flaw. There were many, but no one dared looked close enough to see. I might as well have been Medusa. As he ran his gaze over me, I took the time to study him as well, noting the silver bar piercing his right brow and the small diamond in his right nostril. I could have sworn I’d even glimpse a flash of metal piercing his nipples. Jamie had taken all that sinful deliciousness he naturally possessed and multiplied it by ten thousand. As if the world didn’t already have enough injustices.

“You’re so beautiful. Did it hurt?” He kept his gaze on me as he turned his head and blew out smoke.

“Did what hurt?” I could feel the heat from Jamie’s cigarette when he defiantly brushed his thumb across my bottom lip. To Jamie’s knowledge, I belonged to his cousin now, but he clearly didn’t give a damn.

“When you fell from heaven, Satan.”

I slapped his hand away while telling myself to get a grip. Jamie might have surprised me, but he was nothing I couldn’t handle. “Get lost, Jameson.”

Tapping the end of his cigarette, he sprinkled ash onto my designer blouse. A piece of the flame had fallen, burning through the sheer material, scorching my skin. Before now, I’d never thought Jamie capable of hurting me. The truth was now so blatantly blazed into our history that it could never be unwritten.

Without warning, he pressed closer until I could see nothing but the angry blackness of his eyes. “I’m afraid I’m not going anywhere. By the time I’m done with you, Barbette Montgomery, you’ll be crawling back to me… but I doubt I’ll want my cousin’s sloppy thirds.”

“I wouldn’t hold your breath.” I wasted little time pushing him away. Tragically, the moment my hand connected with his warm skin, the electricity threatening to make my broken heart beat again became too obvious to ignore. I tried to run from it, but some inexplicable need to seal our fate had me spinning on my heel to face him again. “Better yet, Jameson, do us both the favor, won’t you?”
