Never trust a smiling girl when she tells you what her name is. Especially not when she’s a furry, one of the exotic mass produced clones of the city of San Iadras. Is her name Jamie? Really? There are a hundred and sixty-eight girls with that exact face, and that exact voice purring out the same little lies.
Oh, she’s single. Unattached, no boyfriend to speak of, just looking for something casual and sensual and unimaginably pleasurable. Just for tonight. No strings. And her name’s Jaybird. It’s not Jaybird either? Well, it’s close. It’s Jayden. No? Does it really matter?
The truth is, Jade Dixon’s desperate to be anyone but herself. She’s out for a one-night stand, but her heart’s so broken the shards could cut her to pieces. So she’ll protect herself from those old hurts however she has to. She’ll be Jamie, she’ll be Jayden, she’ll play any game, so long as she gets one more night of ecstasy.
But Jade’s about to find out that she’s not the only one who can play games.
