My only niggly itch...I was a bit disappointed to see it was another threesome like her Kathleen Turner Series. Ms. Snow seems to have a formula for her stories: include a love triangle. I’m generally NOT a fan of love triangles but will always go in with an open mind and I must say that so far, Ms. Snow makes it work. This story involves Sage Reese, secretary executive administrative assistant to her boss, Parker Anderson, sexy and sophisticated Investment Banker and hot gun-toting Detective, Dean Ryker. The upside, the story was different. Sage ends up smack dab in the middle of money laundering and the Russian mob. Sure, you have to suspend reality for a few things as you could pick apart the details but it makes for a good story. And Sage was at times silly in her actions but she was brave and her heart was in the right place. How she finds herself between two hot men who now despise each other is also slightly different(view spoiler)[although like the KT series, the heroine works with one of the men and the men have a past. They were connected (while in a different way) much like Blaine and Kade in the KT series (hide spoiler)] . Needless to say, I was completely entertained, liking the characters, the story and like Sage, vacillating between both Ryker and Parker. Although, by the end, I did make my choice and so did Sage. Or rather she was forced to make a choice although I'm not sure it was the right one. I don't think her heart is all in. Now I want to see how it unfolds! ***An advance reading copy was generously provided by author in exchange for an honest review.*** For more reviews and blog posts.

Power Play is the first novel in a brand new series from the creator of the Kathleen Turner series and the Tangled Ivy series. The queen of the love triangle brings us another fantastic trio of characters…Sage, Parker, and Ryker. Sage…poor little rich girl…only she’s actually quite awesome. She grew up with privilege, but she’s never let it go to her head. She’s paving her own way in the world and even though things aren’t going exactly as planned, she’s not running back to daddy with her tail tucked. No, she’s working hard as the “executive administrative assistant” for Parker Anderson, the suave, sexy, bossy boss that she’s been secretly lusting after for months. Parker is the quintessential alpha male in a suit and tie. He’s smooth, he’s sexy, he’s a bit of a playboy, but too classy to be a man-whore. In fact, he’s pretty much perfect fantasy material for Sage except for one little problem…he’s not shown an ounce of interest in his sexy secretary (ahem…executive administrative assistant. That is, until an old friend begins to show too much interest in her. Nothing like a little competition to bring out the cave man in the boss man. Ryker is Parker’s opposite…he’s a rough and ready, jeans and motorcycle guy with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. He’s also a detective, and he’s also making it clear that Ivy is in his sights just as much as the bad guy is. In addition to the organized criminal angle that gives us our suspense and intensity, we have two heroes with a past. Ryker and Parker have both wanted the same girl before, and Sage soon realizes how confusing it is to be smack dab in between two men who are this powerful and this invested. While Ryker has no problem showing her his life, his lust, and his intentions, Parker continues with the mysterious, confusing, and sexy vibe. There’s something there with both these boys, and the fact that they are so different is enticing and confusing. From my perspective...Sage is in the most delicious alpha sandwich!

    This is a story about two men with a long past with each other and the woman who comes between them. One wears expensive suits and has a powerful, authoritative presence and the other is a charming bad-boy with striking blue eyes and a wicked grin. The woman is beautiful with a likable personality; being inside her head is pretty entertaining often amusing.

If This is a story about two men with a long past with each other and the woman who comes between them. One wears expensive suits and has a powerful, authoritative presence and the other is a charming bad-boy with striking blue eyes and a wicked grin. The woman is beautiful with a likable personality; being inside her head is pretty entertaining often amusing. She also has a tendency to do really stupid things at dumb times to land herself in dangerous situations. Does ANY of this sound familiar? If you've read the Kathleen Turner series, then YES, THIS SOUNDS FRICKEN FAMILIAR cuz it's pretty much the same damn setup. Zero points for originality. Parker is a duller version of Blane and Ryker is Kade except nowhere near as charming and no added depth under that so called bad boy exterior. One big difference I found for myself though was that, in the Kathleen Turner series it wasn't until book 4 that I called bullshit on the "well-done love triangle" bit.....whereas with this series I'm ready to cry foul RIGHT NOW with book 1. Sage is cool with making out with whichever guy she happens to be with at any given time, and that to me is already a shitty handling of a love triangle. But you know what? Tiffany Snow gots skillz, because I found myself turning the pages quite easily, no matter how many times I rolled my eyes at the cheesiness (it's pretty cheesy) or how irritated I got over the characters' actions (they do a lot of irritating things). The readableness (is that a word?) and entertainment factor almost made me round up to 3 stars, but then I realized that it didn't really matter either way to me if I read the next book or not, and so this "I don't care about the sequel" feeling led me to round down instead. 2.5 stars

However, Tiffany Snow is one of the very few authors whose love triangles I will take a chance on without reading reviews first or asking my trusted book friends if they would recommend it. Power Play hooked me from the first page and I found it hard to put this book down. The characters, the chemistry between Sage and Parker/Ryker, and the suspenseful plotline all made for a great read. I really loved Sage's character and I think that she may be my favorite heroine to date from Tiffany Snow's books. She's independent, intelligent, and doesn't let her background define who she is. She is determined to blaze her own trail and find success on her own. Parker is the untouchable, sexy, businessman that is completely irresistible. He's got an air of mystery surrounding him and I really want to know more about him and his background. Ryker will definitely appeal to readers who like their cocky, arrogant, badboys =) The complete opposite of Parker, Ryker is more open and honest. Basically, what you see is what you get. He isn't afraid to pursue what he wants and is up front about it. I really liked that aspect of his character. Power Play had everything that I have come to love about Ms. Snow's books. I will be anxiously awaiting Playing Dirty (book #2) as I really want to see where Sage, Ryker, and Parker's story will end up =) ARC courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review

In the last chapter that I read before I gave up, was the main character who-I-cant-remember-the-name-of to fly with her boss to New York. Of course, she is not in first class but are instead sitting with a child that ends up spilling his coca cola on her skirt. She later realizes that it became see through and that her boss had seen her bending over without any panties since they were soaked. She is horrified and I'm a bored.

No, there are som some trouble with the booking of hotel rooms and she is without one and there are no close by hotels with any hotel room available so her boss Parker (see I remember a name) of course, tells her that she will stay in his hotel room since he have two rooms and they are adults.

    From the moment that I read the blurb for this book, I was excited. It sounded just like the kind of story that I would like and reminded me so much of one of my favorite will-they or won't they couples on television, Suits’ Harvey and Donna. The ambitious, smart, handsome, charming boss with the indispensible secretary (Sorry, Sage, I should say Administrative Assistant). The woman that knows him better than himself. The woman that he couldn't be without. So, knowing all of that, I was absolute From the moment that I read the blurb for this book, I was excited. It sounded just like the kind of story that I would like and reminded me so much of one of my favorite will-they or won't they couples on television, Suits’ Harvey and Donna. The ambitious, smart, handsome, charming boss with the indispensible secretary (Sorry, Sage, I should say Administrative Assistant). The woman that knows him better than himself. The woman that he couldn't be without. So, knowing all of that, I was absolutely jumping up and down and ready to read this. But, I had a moment of pause, when I saw that this was going to be a love triangle. I still haven't recovered from Tiffany Snow's last love triangle, The Kathleen Turner Series. I vowed I would go into this, though, with an open mind and I would not pick a side right off the bat. I was not going to subject myself to that sort of heartbreak again. There are those who will say, it's just a book. Get over it. But, you cannot just get over it with a Tiffany Snow book. She has a way of writing characters that you genuinely care about. Characters that you identify with or characters that you just want to be with. Not too many readers have that gift, but Tiffany does. So, because of Tiffany, Blane Kirk has and always will be the book boyfriend I judge all others by. I honestly did not think anyone could come close to him. Well, let me introduce you to Parker Anderson. He is Harvey Specter-esque with some Blane-like qualities. So, my promise to not get too emotionally invested or pick a side this time? Well, yeah, that's out the window. I am firmly in Team Parker. We see him through his Girl Friday, Sage Reese's eyes. She doesn't want to be the stereotypical, clichéd secretary crushing on the boss. She fights her feelings and tries to dismiss them knowing that something between them could never work. Yet, he calls and she comes running. This is done to humorous effect in the first chapter when Sage's night out with her current boyfriend is interrupted by Parker. So Mr. Wrong breaks up with Sage telling her that she’s already in a relationship with her boss even though she doesn’t seem to know it. And the other third of this triangle? Hot cop Dean Ryker. He comes off as the typical bad boy. Sage is immediately attracted to him even though she senses the hostility between him and Parker. Is Ryker flirting with her just to get under Parker’s skin? Is he using her to work an angle on his latest case? Throw in the obvious bad blood between the former friends that stems from fighting over the same girl. Will this cycle repeat itself? You know it will! But, the ride will hopefully be as fun and romantic as Tiffany Snow books always are. There's some fun banter between Ryker and Parker as they trade one-liners and there's quite a funny scene where Sage breaks up one of these fights as the two mean play a comical game of “I know you are, but what am I?” This book had it all---fun, romance, intrigue, suspense and humor. Sage makes a choice in this book, but I feel that just might be temporary. Don't count the other guy out just yet. I have a feeling that this series will join the Kathleen Turner series as one of my all-time favorites. ARC provided by Forever (Grand Central Publishing) in exchange for an honest review.

Having fallen in love with her prior series, I thought I would give Power Play a shot. Well, I am somewhat saddened to say that while I’m sure you will enjoy Power Play if you missed her prior series, for those of you who didn’t, the romantic lovers’ triangle arc and constant element of danger and suspense will seem remarkably similar to the prior series. The main difference is the rival heroes for the heroine’s attention in the Kathleen Turner series are a lawyer (who employs the heroine) and an assassin for hire who is his brother, while in Power Play you have ex-best friends, one of whom is an investment banker (who employs the heroine) and the other a police officer. In both cases, you have a clear favorite for the heroine’s attention to begin with, with the underdog constantly striving to steal away the heroine’s attention. But like in the Kathleen Turner series, listeners should also be forewarned that while there is a soft ending at the end of the first book, the battle to win a HEA is by no means over and will continue in the next books in the series. In order to get the full romantic arc, you will need to commit to listening to the entire series. Remarkably, however, the blurb for this first book neglects to warn listeners that this is a sequential series that must be read in its entirety prior to learning the romantic resolution.

Maybe I'm in the minority but I LOVE a good love triangle. There is just something so exciting about a love story with two heroes. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but it's mine. What can I say? I love options! And Sage Reese has two very yummy options to choose between. First is Parker; her boss. He is a demanding workaholic who is a little cold and cordial. Lusting after Parker is one of Sage's daily duties. Sure, she has no desire to fall into the boss/secretary cliche but the option really isn't available to her anyway. That is until Sage finds herself caught up in the shady business dealings of her boss and Detective Dean Ryker, Parker's former friend and current foe, is investigating them. "He was dangerous, unpredictable, and full of sharp edges. He made me no promises and asked for none from me. And God help me, I wanted to dip my toe into the fire the burned between us...even if I got burned." Ryker is very different from the man Sage currently pines over. He is the kind of man that sees what he wants and makes no qualms about what he will do or say to get it. That leads to some very naughty propositioning and very forward advances. While Parker is refined and reserved, Ryker is rough around the edges and uses all his charms to his advantage. But as opposite as these two men are they still share a few attributes. The biggest one that is important to this story and to love triangles in general is the chemistry. Each man offers something different to Sage but the chemistry and raw attraction is something that is combustible with each of them. With Ryker, every moment is so raw and sexual. He is the bad boy and every naughty word out of his mouth was yummy. With Parker, there is a longing between every interaction. You can feel how easily it would be for the roles between him and Sage to evolve from professional to pleasurable. Between both these yummy men it was hard to not find myself in a constant state of hot flashes and butterflies. "This isn't something you can straddle the fence on, sweetheart. It's either him, or me." But my favorite aspect of this story, besides the delicious sexual tension and the underlying backstory between Ryker and Parker, is the suspense. HOLY MOLY! I love to be kept on my toes and Power Play did just that. The villain was so swarmy and horrible. The action was continuous and left everything in an elevated state of OMG! Power Play has all the elements of adventure, romance, and suspense. It has topped the list of must-reads and I am dying to see what is next for this troubled trio! 4.5 stars

Sage was known to date but her last boyfriend thought she was tied to her job and not great in bed so that didn’t work out. Then all of the sudden in literally a matter of days she is mixed up in a Russian mob scandal about sex trafficking and kidnapping. She was beaten, kidnapped and harassed all in a matter of days. Oh and her boss Parker is being investigated for his Russian ties by his former best friend Dean Ryker; who by the way wants to protect Sage at all costs. I generally am not a big fan of triangles – this one is interesting though. Parker and Sage have undeniable chemistry but Parker has made it clear he doesn’t want Sage (as the reader we can see between the lines) while Ryker initially wanted to protect Sage develops real feelings for her – while Sage is caught in the middle. Keeping in mind that this is a trilogy who knows what will happen in the next set of books, but knowing Tiffany Snow what happened at the end of book 1 is not necessarily what’s going to happen in books 2 and 3. I have read the Ivy series by this author and the one thing I can say that seems consistent is that her books move very quickly. The Power Play is action packed with a lot of developments that happen in a very short amount of time. Sometimes so quickly that as the reader I had to go back and reread passages just to keep the timeline straight. I am good with that mainly because her writing is so good, any other author I may not be. The other thing I would caution readers is that Tiffany doesn’t shy away from graphic descriptions both in regards to her love scenes and violence. I appreciate the fact that she has the same writing approach with both. I enjoyed this edge of your seat thriller/romance and am really looking forward to the next book.

Power Play, the first installment of the Risky Business Series was everything I expected from the talented Ms. Snow plus so much more. If I had to sum up book one of this series, it would be The Kathleen Turner Series on steroids. It's bigger and better than before with more drama, more romance, and more suspense – just more of everything that I came to love in the other series. Instead of two brothers, we have two former best friends. I say former because they both use to be in love with the same woman – a woman who took her own life because she could not stand to come between the two friends. But what she didn't know is her death tore these two men apart more than ever. These two men are Ryker, a police detective, and Parker, an investment banker. Both men are swoon worthy, but I must admit that Ryker has stolen my heart. This man is the bad boy type that I find myself drawn to who is sex personified and such a smooth talker. Yep, my heart is with Ryker. I’m not sure how I feel about Parker yet. Yes, he is one sexy man, but I just don’t know how I feel about him yet – so I guess you can say that the jury is still out as far as Parker is concerned. Then we have Sage Reese, Administrative Assistant to Parker. She has been so in love with Parker since day one of her employment and is obsessively dedicated to this man. She does everything possible to make Parker’s work life flow smoothly. It’s not until Parker comes under scrutiny due to a big investment deal involving some shady Russian characters that Ryker is on Sage’s radar, and suddenly her love for Parker is not so clear cut. After all the drama and intensity that was never ending, book one ends and it appears that Sage’s decision on which man she is going to choose is pretty clear cut, but then in the final pages we learn that maybe, just maybe, one of the two men wants much, much more than we previously thought. So yes, we have a love triangle which may turn some readers off, but I must say I loved trying to guess who will end up with whom. I absolutely loved this book! I finished this one in about a day because I just couldn't put it down. It kept me guessing throughout and I was biting my nails because of all the high stakes drama that took place. This well-crafted novel had a lot of suspense with just the right amount of romance. There are plenty of twists and turns that kept me engaged throughout. Tiffany Snow hit it out of the park with this one and I can’t wait for Playing Dirty to be released. If you loved The Kathleen Turner Series or just love a good romantic suspenseful story with lots of high stakes drama and hot, steamy romance then you’re going to love this new series. 5 stars *I received a copy of this book from the Goodreads Firstreads giveaway program.

    No, no! Not again!   I get it, romance is not the most innovative genre. Much of its spell comes from playing well-known motifs time after time. It is also not unusual that authors tend to write stories similar to each other. But this is an exaggeration!

But this… this feels like rereading No Turning Back. And you know what? I actually pushed myself to read the whole book (okay, I was skipping big chunks, but it still counts) and this book is as irritating as Kathleen Turner series. I really don't think I will be reading next book in this series unless I really need it for some challenge (I seriously hope I won't).

But that was then and this is now! Like forbidden fruit, the temptation to read another action packed, sexy page turner by Tiffany Snow is just too great a pull for my will-power.

But that was then and this is now! Like forbidden fruit, the temptation to read another action packed, sexy page turner by Tiffany Snow is just too great a pull for my will-power. Is this like the Kathleen Turner Series...no! The foundations laid in Power Play provide the potential for the Risky Business Trilogy to be an even greater love story. Sage Reece loves her job which is just as well as she's pretty much on-call 24/7 for her demanding boss Parker Anderson. Not that she sees it as a hardship working for the drop-dead gorgeous man with clear blue eyes. He has her heart, although he gives the impression he's immune to her beautiful looks. Many say he's arrogant, but Parker Anderson sees himself as confident. He's the highly sought and respected Director of Investment Analytics at KLP Capital. He's cool and business-like in his work place especially when around his stunning executive administrative assistant. Their relationship is strictly professional. However, after an old arch nemesis visits his office and notices Sage, maybe the cliché boss and secretary scenario should be considered after all? When his arch nemesis turns up as a suspect in a case he's investigating, Dean Ryker wastes no time seeking out Parker Anderson for answers. What he didn't expect is to find a “bombshell” of a secretary working for his suspect. Never one to miss an opportunity, Ryker asks Sage on a date and whisks her away right from under Parker's nose. But is this tentative date for pleasure or another means to collect information and evidence for his case? Power Play is a fast paced suspenseful romance. As with all of Tiffany's books this is a well written novel laced with witty and humorous dialogue. In this tight knit love triangle, the sparks of attraction are flying everywhere as both guys vie for Sage's attention. Like Sage, I can see both positive and negative personality traits in both Parker and Ryker. I do however prefer one guy over the other, but only slightly. Power Play didn't have the same immediate impact as No Turning Back...or so I thought. This was definitely a slow burn beginning for me. In the couple of days since I finished reading this first installment of the Risky Business trilogy, I've already found myself thinking more about the protagonists than I thought I would... a feeling of deja vu? So, the seeds of a new love triangle obsession have been sown! I can't wait to find out what happens next to Sage, Parker and Ryker in the remaining books in the series; Playing Dirty and Play To Win. I just hope my pieced together fractured heart wont be broken into millions of shards again! 5 Stars ***arc generously received courtesy of Forever (Grand Central Publishing) via NetGalley*** http://norwayellesea.blogspot.no/

    Sage is Parker's secretary - excuse me, I mean executive administrative assistant. She's had a crush on her boss for years but knows he doesn't even notice her. So when the hot detective, who seems to loath her boss, comes and asks her out, why would she say no? What Sage doesn't realize is that she is now in the middle of two feuding ex-best friends, a murder investigation, and the Russian mob. This book was only okay for me.

She's had a crush on her boss for years but knows he doesn't even notice her. So when the hot detective, who seems to loath her boss, comes and asks her out, why would she say no? What Sage doesn't realize is that she is now in the middle of two feuding ex-best friends, a murder investigation, and the Russian mob. This book was only okay for me. I decided to give it a try after hearing about the Harley riding, leather wearing, tough detective but I was a little disappointed in it. The story quickly took a turn from employee hot for boss, to murder and mayhem. There were a lot of secrets the I kept trying to figure out and desperately wanted to know but they just didn't keep me interested. Sage wanted her boss something fierce, and then she wanted Ryker, but then was still attracted to Parker. I got whiplash from her constant back and forth and it wasn't her trying to figure out who she wanted, it was her just being with whoever was going after her at that time. Her character bugged me because she would just go along with whatever guy happened to be there and never actually making a decision. The story was suspenseful and intriguing enough that it had me devouring the story to get to the end so I could find out all the secrets. There was a lot of unknowns that I was desperate to find out, but I was getting a little bored with it. It was more mystery and thrill than romance but I'm hoping to see more romance in the next part. Damn these cliffhangers!

When I begin a Tiffany Snow book I KNOW I am going to get a well written, well edited, fast paced, Romance/Suspense book. I also know that NOBODY does love triangles like this author. She writes these great characters that get imbedded under your skin, and you just can’t help but feel for them as you go through their journey. I loved that weather this main character Sage, was right, wrong, or indifferent she owned what she was feeling, saying or doing. Made no excuses and she knew she really didn’t owe anybody anything, she went with it and did what she felt at the moment. I thought there was great character development because I FELT everything she felt and my heart squeezed for her when she felt rejected or hurt. I am so excited for the next book Playing Dirty (Risky Business #2) (which incidentally is NOT far off, expected release date of September 29th) Now, let’s talk about the extra little goodies. At the end of book 1 we get the prologue to book 2 and if I wasn’t already in love with Parker that definitely would have sealed the deal for me <3 There is one more thing but since I don’t like to give ANYTHING away I’m just going to say die hard Tiffany Snow fans will spot it and love it (wink, wink)I am thrilled when I can honestly tell my book besties to add this one to your TBR’s ladies!!! If you have been threatened by me in the past (LOL) and have succumbed and then loved the other series by this author than I can EASILY say you will love this one too!

Sage Reese is the Executive Administrative Assistant to Parker. Sage goes above and beyond the call of duty for Parker, their relationship is strictly professional. Though Sage harbors a one sided crush for Parker, she doesn't want to feed the boss/secretary cliché. When Parker takes on a new account, Sage is inadvertently thrown into the crosshairs of the Russian Mob. Enter badass Detective Dean Ryker. Ryker doesn't mince words with Sage; he thinks Parker is part of the problem and not the solution. Sage isn't convinced, as Parker and Ryker clearly have a history and not necessarily a good one. As events unfold, Sage is torn between the two men. Parker - her boss with whom no romantic relationship could be possible and Ryker - the badass cop that has the potential to turn their mutual attraction into more. Yes, Yes, Yes!! Tiffany Snow has done it AGAIN! Power Play is fast paced, witty, steamy, and kept me turning page after page long past bed time. I didn't want the story to end. The tension between the three characters was off the charts. Throw in the danger and mystery involved with the Russian Mob and that turned the angst up another notch. I can't wait to continue reading about Sage, Parker and Ryker in Playing Dirty.

    Yes! Yes! Yes! Finally, a series I can obsess about as much I did the Kathleen Turner series! Is it Kathleen Turner 2.0? Not at all, but it is the wonderful mess of a love triangle style Tiffany Snow became known for. I am beyond thrilled about it! This story is told by Sage. She is an only child of wealthy parents trying to make her own way in the world of high finance. Parker is her boss. He is punctual, routine, exacting, self focused, dominating of Sage's time, and oh yeah, tall dark and sexy Yes! Yes! Yes!

She is an only child of wealthy parents trying to make her own way in the world of high finance. Parker is her boss. He is punctual, routine, exacting, self focused, dominating of Sage's time, and oh yeah, tall dark and sexy handsome. Sage has been infatuated with him for a while but loves her job and believes Parker to be of high moral standards and uninterested in her. Things are running along quite smoothly until another tall dark and handsome man shows up unexpectedly at Parker's office. His name is Ryker. He is a bit more untamed and rough around the edges. He is also a cop who has business with Parker despite the apparent bad blood between them. This secret business and her association with Parker quite quickly end up placing Sage in danger. Both men have their own ideas about how to protect Sage, and each one blames the other for placing her in danger in the first place. As for Sage, she is no shrinking violet to be ordered around. She is the type to do whatever is right despite the costs. As each man tries to turn her against the other, Sage pinballs between the two seeking any safety she can find. Unfortunately, no one is safe from the enemy who has Sage in his crosshairs. She knows she has to make a choice between Ryker and Parker, but her devotion and love lie with the man who tells her they have no future. Will she stay with him or opt for the man who wants her and makes her feel important. Both men make her heart race and her hormones take notice, but only one seems like a sure thing in the long term. No matter what, she will have to hurt one in order to have the other. I completely loved this story. The characters were so well developed and intriguing with particular little idiosyncrasies. The suspense and action were generously spread throughout the story, and the chemistry was off the charts with tension and desire. I was sucked in immediately and couldn't put it down. The preview for book two at the end was superb as well and had me so excited. I just know I am going to love this series!!! An ARC was provided through Net Galley for honest review. However, the opinions in this review are all mine. I hope you love this story as much as I did.

    ★★★¾ Warning!!!!!! This book contains an epic amount of love triangle. Let's just get that out of the way. Power Play is the first installment in Tiffany Snow's adult romantic suspense series titled Risky Business. I liked this book a lot actually...despite the dreaded triangle. I actually didn't mind it too much and that's pretty rare for me. I did however very much mind the seemingly manipulation of our sweet heroine: Sage by the two heroes in this book. It got pretty annoying after a while but ★★★¾ Warning!!!!!! This book contains an epic amount of love triangle. Let's just get that out of the way.

It got pretty annoying after a while but the back and forth romance itself wasn't horrible in my opinion. Personally, I would drop them both and go find someone new but we're talking about fiction, so... My favorite part about this book was the thriller/suspense element going on. There are some pretty dark characters who enter this story and all the stress created a fast-paced feel later on in the book. This is a series I'm looking forward to continuing as long as the suspense factor doesn't end up getting outweighed by the triangle drama. I guess we'll find out! Note: I listened to the audio version of this book. It's pretty well done but a woman is altering her voice for the male parts. It just didn't sound right and I think having an additional narrator (deep-voiced male) would have done wonders for this experience. Just my opinion. My favorite quote: "I wasn't one of those women who pretended not to be impressed by a man's physique. I loved a well-built man. Ryker said he was cliche? Well, so was I. I was definitely impressed by a strong man. Sue me."

Overall, It was very typical TS style. If I had to choose a team right now it'd be Team Parker of course.

Sage is a likable heroine who has a thing for her hot boss and then finds herself attracted to his former best friend.

From some of the earlier reviews, I see choices of their favorite heroes have been made. Unlike those reviewers, I like both male characters although I am not very sympathetic towards Sage because she has the enviable task of choosing between a rich, debonair Parker and a rugged and good looking Ryker. Life is just so tough for Sage! I like that Tiffany Snow has always been able to inject reality into her characters and personalities. I do find most women I know would rather hang on to "2nd choice" rather than 'go all in' and walk away with nothing for 'the love of their life', hence love triangles are so popular. As Power Play is due for release on June 30 at all major retail outlets, I will not post any more spoilers. I enjoyed reading it and look forward to the 2nd book. And Tiffany, thanks for the little scene at a bar in New York. Always great to be visited by my favorite characters 'wink wink'.

And like many of you, fell in love with her writing and her characters in KTS ( Kathleen Turner Series). Tiffany Snow has an amazing ability to write characters (ehh at least most of whom) that you'd want to actually know and be friends with in real life. With POWER PLAY Tiffany Snow brings back the ♡triangle♡ that she is so clearly the Queen of; with Sage, Parker and Ryker.

Even though I have made an indelible decision to stay emotionally distant from both male leads of POWER PLAY. I am naturally a sucker for a man in a tailored suit. Tiffany Snow left me so emotionally destroyed after her last love triangle!!! Sage so far, is a likable character. She is loyal to her indomitable boss Parker Anderson. Who is the object of her silent affection. However she refuses to become the office cliché. So she does not act on her attraction to Parker. In walks Dean Ryker rough edges, and all around ladies man. Sage is attracted to both men. But with contrasting reasons. She does seem to have Kats ability to find trouble under a rock. Which will no doubtfully make for a melting pot of action later in the series.

    Reviews say it is a bit repetitive. Love triangle with a touch of suspense. There is a cliffhanger... so you need to read Book 2 for resolution.

I have a theory that people that liked Kade in the Kathleen Turner series will like Ryker, and the people that liked Blane will like Parker. Again, I went into this book with many reservations. I still haven't gotten over the last love triangle Tiffany Snow wrote in the Kathleen Turner Series, and I vowed after those books that I was going to wait to read this series until it was fully published, so I would know who got the girl from the start, and wouldn't get attached to the guy that got the crap ending. I probably would've stuck with that, except I won an ARC, and how could I not read it after winning an ARC?! I was ALSO wary, because I haven't enjoyed the Ivy series that Tiffany Snow has written. I can't seem to connect to any of the characters in the Ivy series, and so again, going into this book? I had a lot of reservations and was determined not to get attached to any one male character. Well, obviously, that didn't go so well. Because I'm Team Parker all the way. Having said that, I still am not allowing myself to get as attached to him as I did Blane. I am DETERMINED! I liked this book. I was actually very pleasantly surprised by this book. I liked Parker. Ryker was okay, but was kind of cliche to me. I still didn't hate him, though. Sage, I liked MOST of the time. A few things she did annoyed me. Examples: 1. Wearing a highly inappropriate cocktail dress to a business dinner. It would be one thing if it was just a regular dinner, but a business dinner? You don't show ridiculous amounts of skin at a business dinner. 2. I do NOT like how fast she jumped into bed with Ryker. She was sleeping with him and five minutes before (and after), she was thinking about Parker. So that makes me question her decision making skills. Kathleen in the KT series jumped into bed with both Blane and Kade, and I hated that. I don't want to read about another heroine that sleeps with both guys in a love triangle. But maybe that's just me. And I suspect that Sage is going to end up sleeping with both Parker and Ryker, and that's a huge turn off for me. Keep it in your pants until you pick a guy! Don't go back and forth between two guy's beds. That's just icky. So, as of now, Sage is my least favorite character, and I hope the entire series isn't her waffling between Parker and Ryker. But we'll see. Like I said, I was pleasantly surprised by this book, and I will definitely read book 2 in the series. This is definitely a step up from Snow's Ivy series. A couple of criticisms: 1. This was a little too similar to the Kathleen Turner series for me... but I still enjoyed it. 2. Tiffany Snow has said that she wished people would let go and move on from the Kathleen Turner series... but I don't think she's moved on from that series, herself. This is her 3rd series, and in both the Ivy series and this series, we've gotten a cameo of Kathleen and Kade together. OBVIOUSLY the readers aren't the only ones that can't let go. I will say that I rolled my eyes when Kade and Kathleen appeared again. (Because I think they suck and they're terrible people. TEAM BLANE!) You can't expect your readers to move on when you obviously haven't moved on, either. Enough with the Kade/Kat cameos.
