✪ Review & Giveaway ✪ Power Play (Risky Business #1) ✪ Tiffany Snow ✪


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 . . .

ARC received from Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via Netgalley for an honest review

This was my first Tiffany Snow read (although I have had the Kathleen Turner sitting on my kindle forever, waiting to be read) - and I have to say, I will be moving them up my TBR quicksmart after reading Power Play.

Ms Snow certainly does have a knack for writing a love triangle!

Parker Anderson - super sexy boss man.
Sage Reese - executive administrative assistant (don't, I repeat don't call her a secretary) - totally in lust with her boss
Dean Ryker - the hot cop

I have to admit, I flip flopped all through this book as to who I wanted Sage to end up with - #TeamParker or TeamRyker.  Both guys have qualities that I adored and qualities that I disliked.  How is a poor woman to choose?

I loved that Sage finally grew a pair and stood up to them both when it was needed.

I could feel the push/pull between Sage and Parker, and I could feel the pull Sage had towards Ryker.

There is an undercurrent to the story that feels just a little bit dark, with events taking place that our quiet administrative assistant could never have expected.

Right down to the last page, Ms Snow has kept us guessing which direction Sage's feelings would go.... and even at the end when is seems like she has made her choice, all I could think was - nope, this isn't how things are going to be.

Now we have to wait until book 2, Playing Dirty, to find out how things play out.

I am very much looking forward to reading more of this trio.
