By: Tiffany Snow

Details: Paperback from library, 336 Pages

RATING: 4.25 PARKER AND RYKER STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

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 . . .




BOOK REVIEW:

This first installment in Risky Business series had me whiplashed with how similar the recipe is for Kathleen Turner series.

Very similar, but I jumped feet first into the pages and devoured the book (while in hospital and couldn’t sleep) and I read it into the wee hours, while my roomie was softly snoring and making weird noises.

Okay, so now we have ex Marines: Parker and Ryker.

God damn these triangles are amazing.

I REALLY DON’T LIKE LOVE TRIANGLES.

But I like these ones.

This first installment had it all. Parker is simply amazing. In walks cocky Ryker and he is different and amazing.

We get some backstory.

Sage I really liked in this installment. She has her heart all crushing and hurting for Parker and he is the powerful investment guy who is mixing it up with the Russians. She is a hard worker and a team player in the office.

Sage isn’t as good a female lead as Kathleen, but I still liked her and the little bits with Megan, the chick from another part of the company.

There was so much sexual tension in this book between Parker and Sage that the pages were sizzling. He really is written very well.

Ryker has a massive chip on his shoulder with Parker and he wants to show Parker up as the bad guy.

Russian villains and action take over the story with Sage’s life on the line and I totally dug this book.

I launched myself into Playing Dirty straight away.
