Title: Power Play (Risky Business #1)
Author: Tiffany Snow
Genre: Romantic Suspense
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 .
I almost didn’t read this book. I have read Tiffany Snow before and didn’t LOVE it. It wasn’t a bad book, it just didn’t make me want to run out and grab the next book in the series. But, the blurb for this one got my attention and I thought I would give it a shot. I am SO glad I did! Sage, the heroine, was a likable character. She was relatable-she reacted the way I think I would have in those situations. Tiffany Snow didn’t try to make her overly brave or completely helpless and it was refreshing! Ryker was a good character as well-alpha without being an alpha-a-hole, charming, flirty, and a bit broken. He is the one you root for the entire book! Parker, Sage’s boss was an enigma to me. He was obviously a man whore, crazy good businessman but you knew he was up to something. The suspense in this book is amazing! I have read a lot of books that claim to be romantic suspense that have maybe 1 scene wrought with pseudo-danger. This book reminded me why I love the romantic suspense genre when its written well!
Oh, and its book one of a series. Y’all know I love a series!
There is a bit of a love triangle, which I usually loathe. However, Tiffany Snow doesn’t cross the line and it didn’t bother me like most love triangles do. So, kudos for that! Also, there is a pseudo-cliffhanger that now has me really curious about the next book and where Sage, Ryker, and Parker go from here… (I am NOT good with cliffhangers, but like I said, this one isn’t quite a cliffhanger in the true sense. Just read the book and you will see what I mean!)
