Summary


THIS KIND OF BUSINESS CAN ONLY BE PERSONAL

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 . . .


The verdict


Three words: Fast, hot and intriguing. That about sums it up. 

I hadn't read a Tiffany Snow title before, also I'm not a crime/mystery fan much, but I'm  so glad I read this! Now I have another series to look forward to and add to my overstuffed TBR list.

Ever had this fear, that maybe, just maybe you won't really be able to finish your TBR list before the chief reaper rings your bell? Yeah... *deep breaths* I need to calm down...

So, back to Power Play. The fast paced writing and real, likable characters kept me entertained throughout. The overall plot felt sort of predictable and somewhat cliche, halfway through the book. Despite being over three hundred pages, it was a quick read. The love triangle and the crime angle (generally not a fan of either) were made highly absorbing by Ryker and Parker (man, having to choose sucks). Sage though, came across as overly cheesy (and dumb) and a tad annoying at times. 

Other than that, I found Power Play to be an enjoyable, quick read. Would I look forward to reading the sequels? Yes, definitely. I'm sucked in now, aren't I?
