“…like a cop show with a bit of flare for the dramatic.”
~ Under the Covers

My level of enjoyment of POWER PLAY is a case of expectations.  The setup of this series is not something I tend to read a lot because it can get on my nerves, and I guess I didn’t realize this wouldn’t be an HEA book for the couple, but one of those love triangles that drags on throughout the series.  I’ve made those commitments before with some books, but believe me they’re not my thing.  And I wasn’t expecting that from this.  I think because of that I didn’t enjoy this as much as I probably could’ve otherwise.

Our heroine Sage is a bit of a workaholic.  She thinks very highly of her successful boss, Parker.  So much so that she hasn’t realized that all that admiration is actually something deeper.  When Parker becomes involved in a business transaction with the Russian mob, his old friend Ryker comes around snooping his involvement and immediately becomes quite taken with Parker’s assistant, Sage.  Detective Ryker that is.  And Sage finds herself in the middle of a bad situation not only between the two old friends and now sort of enemies, but in the middle of a very bad deal with the bad guys.

As far as the suspense element goes, this is actually really good!  Not that it’s suspenseful per se but it’s a good story, kind of like a cop show with a bit of flare for the dramatic.  Sage is just naive enough to want to do the right thing and ends up in situations that are a bit precarious.  She’s also in between two men that are polar opposites in many ways.  One the epitome of refined and successful, and the other the leather wearing, bike riding bad boy.  Reminded me a bit of Stephanie Plum in some ways, and the love triangle definitely goes in line with that as well.

I was hoping for a romantic resolution in the end, and we don’t get that like I mentioned before.  I’m not sure if I’ll continue and read the next book, maybe if I’m in the right mood for it this time.  The story in itself was good so I may pick it up when I’m ready for a good detective book.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
