Overview

I’m good in a boardroom, but I’m better in the bedroom. Much better. I can charm the skirt off any woman in one encounter. I’ll even give her an orgasm before I put her in a cab. Or three. No more or she’ll start making plans for the future and I’m not into that.

Or I wasn’t until Genevieve Fasbender. She’s the first woman in five years that I want to spend the whole night with. And she’s the first woman who’s told me I’m not what she wants in a lover, even after multiple O’s. She’s brash and bold and stubborn as hell, and she doesn’t believe it’s possible to satisfy her.

But I’m up for the challenge.

And after an incident in my brother’s office closet―a downright dirty incident―I think I’m just the guy to deliver.

Genevieve Fasbender will never know what’s coming.

My Thoughts

I love that some how I managed to read all these stories out of order since I feel like reading this fifth installment that tells us the story of Genny and Chandler after i’ve seen Slay play out gives me a better sense of what the epilogue really mean and what their story truly began as.

We remember from Slay that Genny is Edward’s daughter, a girl who’s insanely intelligent but unfortunately finds herself in the position where her father doesn’t want her to be as close to him in business because he doesn’t want her to see the man that he’s become after all these years. He wants her to keep this cleaner version of him in her mind. So when the opportunity arises to work with Chandler on an opportunity to strengthen everyone’s business, she dives in and Chandler is there with her.

What’s nice about this story is that we see their interactions start as a game of cat and mouse. Genny really wants nothing more from Chandler than to use him for a night because she knows who he is, and then move on. When he realizes who she is, that makes the game more interesting, and add to that the notion that he’s really interested in her, he’s intrigued and can’t get her out of his head, well we know that this can’t end well.

So for the bulk of this story we watch the chase – and we watch on the edge of our seat to see what it will take to crack. Once it cracks, we’re back on the edge of our seat to see the fallout.

There’s the history between Genny’s stepmother Celia and Hudson, Chandler’s older brother that comes in between them, and of course it’s neither of their story to get into the mud on, yet it derails them. There’s the fear that they won’t be truly appreciated for the ideas that they put together since they’re the #2s in their families, so we also hold our breath in the hopes for a happy ending.

All while this is happening, we get the expected steam, passion and heat that comes from our author Laurelin Paige and I have to say that i’m excited to see what’s next since I realized that there are so many other books in this world that i’ve yet to read. So on that note, I hope you liked this one and i’m off to the next. Enjoy!
