Play Dirty (2007)

Details Release Date: Aug 14, 2007; Writer: Sandra Brown; Genres: Mystery and Thriller, Romance; Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Cowboys quarterback Griff Burkett has just been released from jail — and his Adonis-like physique still shines. So powerhouse couple Foster and Laura Speakman, owners of SunSouth Airlines, offer him $600,000 to produce an heir for them (never mind that he's a convicted felon). Turns out the husband's an OCD-riddled paraplegic who prefers the reproductive transaction to occur ''the way God intended'' — forcing the strangers into bed. Meanwhile, a corrupt investigator bent on terrorizing Burkett with unresolved crimes keeps him equally active out of the sack. Like the Speakmans' over-the-top proposition, Sandra Brown's loopy, Harlequin romance-fueled plot (''silky, wet, and sweet'') for Play Dirty is better left unexplored. C-
