About the Book: Sage Reese lives for her job. More precisely, she lives for her debonair boss, Parker Andersen. Sage handles everything for Parker, even as she fantasizes about the one thing that isn't in her job description: him. But when a high-stakes account crosses the line from shady to deadly, a tough cop starts giving Sage the attention she wishes Parker would . . .
Detective Dean Ryker couldn't be more different from Parker. While Parker wears expensive suits like a second skin and drives a BMW, Ryker's uniform is leather jackets and jeans . . . and his ride of choice is a Harley. While Parker's sexiness is a reserved, slow burn, Ryker is completely upfront about what-and who-he's after. And Sage tops his list.
Now, as Ryker digs deeper into the dark side of Parker's business, Sage finds herself caught between two men: the one she's always wanted-and the one who makes her feel wanted like never before . . . [Description from the back cover]
My Review: I'll be the first person to tell you that I am over love triangles. It's been done - a lot. But you know what, apparently there is some part of me that still sees that story line as a guilty pleasure. Power Play is a fascinating romantic suspense with a very tough choice - do you love Parker or Ryker more? On one hand, we have the sexy, clean-cut boss, and on the other hand, we have the rough and tumble cop.
The love triangle isn't the only cliche in this book. There's plenty, for exampe - the boss that doesn't notice her until another man shows interest - but the suspense in this book was worth it. I loved the story itself. Sage was in a tough place, and I was on the edge of my seat while it all played out. The Mafia angle was fascinating, and it made me both excited and nervous.
When I found out the second book featured the same people, I was a little turned off. But considering how Power Play ends, I cannot wait until the second book!
Cover Lovin': Well, this one caught my eye so that should tell you something.
Recommendation: If you still need some love triangles in your life. And if you love some suspense with your romance. And be prepared to immediately pre-order book 2!
Final Rating: FOUR out of FIVE stars (4/5). Some cliches, for sure, but overall, this was a very enjoyable read. Definitely a guilty pleasure of mine.
