Give It Up is an anthology containing three Lori Foster reprints. He Sees You When You're Sleeping was issued in Jingle Bell Rock Anthology, Some Like It Hot was issued in Perfect For the Beach Anthology, and Playing Doctor was issued in When Good Things Happen to Bad Boys Anthology. The three stories are a complete trilogy.

Libby Preston suffered through her uncle's party with the knowledge that she owed him. He'd never been the doting uncle, and made sure she knew her place. And that place did not consist of having a fling in her uncle's yard during his party. With a man she didn't even know. Libby didn't have flings. She didn't have carefree sex. She was devoted to her schooling, close to graduation, and would finally be able to get free from her uncle. But she hadn't been able to escape this stranger's heated gaze. And when she slipped away from the party, he followed.

There were certainties that ruled Axel Dean's life. He was a confirmed bachelor. Women loved him, and he loved them right back. He was a dedicated gynecologist who took the health and care of his patients seriously. And he wanted this woman. Maybe just for the evening, maybe longer. But never forever. He wasn't that type of man. When he learns Libby's shocking truths, Axel starts to discover something even more unexpected. His playboy future might not be as certain as he once thought.

Playing Doctor is the sexy conclusion for this trilogy. Axel's wild, somewhat exasperating, ways had been on display in the first two stories, and it was more than past the time for him to settle. And boy does he come up with a match in Libby. Although in Playing Doctor it is obvious that it is set after the previous two stories, it can still be read on its own.
