    1. 4 karma's a bitch starsHell hath no fury like a woman scorned.What a tangled web we weep Jack Schmidt may have been going through the motions after the death of his wife, distracted by the first pretty thing that crossed his path, only now it's not so pretty. Once he catches Vanessa in bed with her trainer, he starts to see things clearly and sees her for what she truly is, a conniving-gold-digging-bitch. His first priority is getting her out of his life, but since he's been blinded by her for s [...]

    2. I really liked this story. It was original, flowed well and the characters were relatable. There were parts of the story that left me on my toes, and had me doing a double take when they happened. Alexandra, or Alex as she prefers, just moved to town and started a new job at Clear Message. It’s clear from day one that she has a “thing” for the boss. She vows not to act on it, especially after she finds out he is engaged to the wicked witch of the office.Jack is the CEO of Clear Message, an [...]

    3. ***I was provided an ARC for an honest review***Oh the ARC… I’ve laid awake at night trying to come up with a system to rate these that takes in to account that I got something for nothing. I don’t want to give too harsh of a review (when warranted) as to completely lose sight of the fact this is in fact someone’s pursuit of a dream or too light of a review that’s its really dishonest and merely padding the numbers/skewing the star rating. What I came up with is a couple of things 1. A [...]

This book has the whole [...]

    7. I had requested the author, Kali Cross to send me a copy of her book Power Play because of the synopsis she had posted. It was the first hook and oh boy did I get hooked on. This is definite a page-turner and a book you want to sit with a cup of tea and your phone on silent. We have Jack, a later thirties, very successful, Adonis kinda guy. He is breath of fresh air, when you describe the main lead with such words. First off, he has no arrogance, he is a guy you meet in regular life ( you are lu [...]

    9. ** I received this book in return for an honest review **4 1/2 starsPower Play is the first book that I have read by Kali Cross. I really loved this book.

    10. Power play by Kali Cross is a hot cotemporary romance with a twist of suspense. Quick summary: Jack discovers his fiancée, Vanessa, was only interested in him to get a 20% stake in his company, along with sharing her charms with clients. Enter Alexandra (Alex), the loyal manager whose job it is to sort out the mess. Jack’s about-to-be ex-fiancée is crazy and spiteful, and Alex has some baggage she’s running from. The sparks between Alex and Jack are too hot for them to resist. The plot has [...]

    11. I absolutely loved this book. There was enough suspense to keep me guessing. The relationship between Jack and Alex was hot! The potential for Mike and Taylor is there. And Vanessa, she is just a greedy, money hungry little twit! Alex has moved and taken a new job to get away from the bad things that have been happening in her life. On her first day at work she feels the talons from Vanessa before the two are even introduced. It is certainly a love at first sight kinda heat between Jack and Alex [...]

When I received the e book, I wasn't sure how much could be told within the storyline due to a very in depth synopsis.

The protagonists were very likable as well. a nice relaxed read with some nice steamy sections to get the blood pumping. I felt though th [...]

Overall a decent read that I would recommend.

    14. Office politics, a nasty ex and an even nastier stalker plus a steamy hot love affair. The identity of the stalker keeps you guessing till the end, which was a refreshing change from the normal damsel in distress scenario. I loved Alex's character, feisty bold and not afraid to go after what she wants while (mostly) keeping her personal integrity intact. Love scenes were detailed, steamy but tasteful.At first I was a little dubious about the first person style as it isn't easy to pull off, but K [...]
