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.

I received an advanced readers copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
Play Me Hard is the third instalment in the Play Me eBook series and Aria and Sebastian's story continues where it left off in the second instalment.
I felt that this instalment built a little more on the emotional connection between Aria and Sebastian. Of course they are still confused about what they are feeling and are in a denial of sorts but they are slowly coming around. The sexual chemistry is blatantly obvious from the last book and in this one, but the emotional aspect is creeping into both their heads as well. Book 2 consisted mostly of their first sexual encounter whereas this one provides more of a story. It digs a little deeper into both of their pasts but still leaves the reader wondering even when giving some clues. Over and over it mentions what happened to Aria fourteen months ago but never tells us what it was that happens. What really grabbed me though was the glimpse into Sebastian's past. Again we do don't know much about it but it becomes apparent that something very big happened there as well.
This instalment solidified my need to finish out the series because now I want answers and I need to know what happens. You will want book 4 immediately because although each book is a continuous story, there is a pretty major cliffhanger with this one.
