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 . . .
Wow! What a fantastic read!! Usually I’m not a big fan of love triangles, but after reading the synopsis, I knew I had to give this one a try. And I am so glad that I did.
Power Play follows the story of Sage, Parker and Ryker. Sage lives and breathes work. She is completely devoted to her job as an Administrative Assistant for Parker Anderson. She’s always had a harmless crush on Parker, but has never acted on it. I mean, he’s her boss after all….Enter Detective Ryker. Ryker is the complete opposite of Parker. Parker wears expensive suits and is committed to his job. Where as Ryker is more down to earth riding around on a motorcycle and a uniform of t-shirt and jeans. Parker is less obvious about his feelings, where as Ryker is not afraid to go after what he wants. And what Ryker wants is Sage. When Parker gets involved with a shady business deal, Sage will find herself caught in a deadly situation. Questions will be asked. You will be left wondering who is telling the truth? Which side is the right side? Who can Sage trust? As if that wasn’t enough, Sage finds herself caught between two men and will have choose between them, that is if she lives long enough to make that choice…..
I really enjoyed Power Play. I was hooked from the very first page. The story-line was interesting and well written. I couldn’t stop myself from devouring this book. I was hooked on the characters instantly. I loved the banter and connection between Parker, Sage and Ryker. I loved the back and forth, the push and pull, the will they won’t they. This is a book where I think the love triangle worked really well. I liked both of the men. I thought that they both could be good matches for Sage. I will say that even though I had hard time choosing which guy Sage should end up with, I do have a favorite in mind. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how that will all play out.
I loved the danger and suspense aspect of Power Play. There was never a dull a moment. I loved trying to solve the mystery and figure out Parker’s real connection to the situation. I was on the edge of my seat and constantly asking questions. I admit that I was a little frustrated with Sage at times. I felt like some of the situations that she found herself in, could have been avoided, if she would just listen. But, at the same time, it added great entertainment to the story.
Overall, I thought Power Play was a fantastic read. It was captivating from start to finish. The story was perfectly balanced. I loved the angst, romance, action, suspense, and danger.There is a bit of resolution at the end, but it will definitely leave you begging for more. I can not wait to see what will happen next for Sage, Ryker and Parker. This is my first book by Tiffany Snow and this definitely will not be my last.
