  Synopsis   

 I’m sick and tired of my boss, DeVon Ricci, screwing with me. He signed the guy I was seeing just so I couldn't date him, and now he fired an employee who’d insulted me. If he wasn't expecting me to flirt with every top Hollywood executive to help him close deals, I might have thought he felt something for me. The problem is, as angry as he makes me, I can't stop thinking about him. There is only one way I know to get him out of my mind. I have to f**k him. The CEO of Mirage Talent, DeVon Ricci needs to be in control, but ever since Krissy Jensen walked into his company, he's found his control slipping. He knows what he needs to do to get it back again, but the more time he spends with her, the less he's sure he'll be able to follow through. When two passionate, headstrong people finally crash together, they can't help but ignite. The question is, will either of them be able to walk away unburned?

My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:


“I liked the way she felt in my arms and that she wanted me, but it wasn’t the way I liked it with other women.  It wasn’t about the power I had over them.  She made me feel like I was something special, and it had been a long time since a women had made me feel that way.”

My Review:


While I am still having a hard time liking DeVon, I must admit that this man sounds as slick as an oil executive, and better looking than Adonis.  And fortunately, his icy black heart seems to be thawing, though he is still very much a cruel bastard.  I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to continue reading this series after I had finished Part 1, as I had found DeVon to be utterly contemptible… but hot damn!  I do believe I am coming around as I am now totally impatient for Part 3.  The sex scenes are sizzling hot and deliciously steamy now that our two main characters are falling for each other.  However, I know I am really not suited to read book series, I worry I am going to forget too many of the salient details by the time the next book comes along.  Luckily, this series is memorable as well as brief, so I could easily go back and reread them to refresh my memory.  But the wait in between releases - now that I am invested in the story – torturous!  M.S. Parker is a naughty tease!

Cover Reveal, Giveaway: Persuading Tomorrow by J. Laslie



Book: Persuading Tomorrow
Author: J Laslie
Genre: New Adult Releasing September





When the unimaginable happens and Jordan loses her best friend on the night she had planned to tell him her feelings, it leaves her to wonder if she’s the guilty party, but her memories of that night are fuzzy. In an attempt to leave her past and the hateful stares of her peers behind, she moves across the country to live with her mother in Esterwilde, Pennsylvania. It’s a small close-knit town, but there no one should know about her past, or so she thought.
When Zyler runs into the new girl in town he can’t help but feel a connection, but he also knows her past harbors a horrible secret. He’s heard the rumors, but doesn’t believe them. Seeing Jordan in pain kills him and all he wants to do is take it away.
Jordan soon realizes that no matter what she does she’s not going to be able to outrun her past. Can Zyler show her that despite the hate and ignorance in the world that life is still worth living? Will she ever figure out the truth about the night that took away her best friend?


“You gotta stop saying things like that.”
“Why?” I see him push off the counter and step around to face me. He brings a hand up to run his thumb across my cheek and my breath hitches at the intimate contact. His touch still seems to shoot electricity through me. My skin is on high alert when he’s around and I can feel the pace of my heart pick up into a full gallop by the close proximity of him.
“Be.. because I said so?” It shouldn’t have come out as a question and it lacked the conviction that I was feeling inside.

“I don’t think you mean that. I think you like it when I say nice things about you. You just don’t know how to handle them. Jordan, you are a beautiful person no matter what people may have said to you in the past. I know you hide behind that shy exterior, but you need to push that aside and not let people put you down. You have the most amazing wavy, red hair. I didn’t even know it came in that shade naturally. Your eyes are the most brilliant green I’ve ever seen.”
