Power Play, Tiffany Snow

 

Power Play,  Tiffany Snow
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre:  Romance,
Well, my first Tiffany Snow read. I wanted to read the Kathleen Turner series but I hate waiting ages for sequels, so never did get round to it. Maybe now they’re all released…when I’ve time and cash  Anyway this is book one of three, second to come this autumn and book three early next year – Gah, I hate the wait!
So, we meet sage, Administrative Assistant(!) to the deliciously sexy Parker. He’s got it all, looks, money and background. She’s been working for him for a year, and he’s been nothing but professional to her. He demands a lot though, it’s not a 9-5 job, he’s always calling her at odd hours to ask questions or to get her to do something. It’s the kiss of death to her latest relationship – none of them seem to survive the constant calls. Still, she loves her job and needs to be as close as she can to Parker, and she’s incredibly loyal to him.
Then the story takes off with a bang, well a murder anyway. In comes gorgeous Ryker, a detective investigating the murder. He and Parker have a bad history, former best friends from childhood they are now bitter enemies. He asks Sage out – well, tells her he’ll pick her up after work anyway. That’s like a lit fuse to Parker who warns her off, though she still goes out with Ryker.
Events move forward quickly, there’s another murder than evening while Parker and Sage are working late. It puts Parker in the crosshairs of Ryker who’s already suspicious of him, and the dangers begin to stack up. Then Parker gives off mixed signals to Sage, he wants her, he doesn’t, then he does…poor girl, she doesn’t know what to think. Why now when Ryker asks her out, when he’s had a year and done nothing?  Its only natural she wonders if either or both of them only want her to spite the other. She’s attracted to both of them, and who wouldn’t be? They are both really attractive men, not just physically but in their manner too. I really liked them as characters, and found it hard to choose one over the other and usually  in this situation one appeals much more to me. Not this time, like Sage I’m attracted to both. Somehow she’s on this rollercoaster ride where one moment its all hot kisses with Ryker, and she’s given up Parker – after all, he told her he’s toxic to relationships and doesn’t do them – then she’s getting hot and heavy with him. I hate cheating types but its not really that, she’s kind of stuck between them with each pulling out the stops. Ryker wants more with her, but Parker seems to want her but stop himself and isn’t always successful. Throw in some Russian mafia types, more murders and life-threatening danger for Sage and its a riveting, roller-coaster read. I’m not sure than banking or police work really works that way, but it makes for a great read. I Want More Now, Dammit! I hate that wait, lose the momentum that has been charged up with this read. I really enjoy this type of story when I can read all parts back to back, and immerse myself right to the end. Its not exactly a cliff-hanger, its a kind of natural break, but its clear there’s more to come and which way its headed.
Stars: five, a great read and I’ll be waiting for more.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
