MOMENT OF WEAKNESS #1

MOMENT OF WEAKNESS #1                    TONI J. STRAWN

Moment of Weakness by Toni J. StrawnThe rules of engagement are clear: it’s all-out war. And their hearts are on the line.

It’s not that Abby Harkness’s ex cheated. Hell, it’s not even that he did the dirty with her own sister. The worst part? Everyone—even her own mother—knew about it before she did.

These days, Abby’s nomadic job makes it easy to stick to the rules that protect her heart. Rule number one: Never stay in any man’s bed more than one night. But when a carefully planned tryst falls through, she finds herself stranded in a boardroom—naked—with the one man who makes her body scream danger.

Three hours of mind-blowing sex later, Marcus Brookhein walks out of the boardroom feeling like he just lost. That doesn’t sit with someone who lives and breathes competition. Next time, he’s making the rules. Starting by getting her assigned to work side by side with him.

Abby is desperate not to repeat a night of pleasure that left cracks in her carefully constructed defenses. But four long weeks of close proximity loom before her. And Marcus has a lot to teach her about playing dirty…

Warning: Contains a contest of wills with hot sex. Epic hot sex. Pushing-the-limits sex. On a conference table. On the kitchen counter. On the floor—because they never quite make it to the couch.
MY REVIEW:
     For sure this is an erotic case of cat and mouse.  This is for keeps in a way more pleasurable way.  You see Abby Harkness had been burned by love in the worst way.  Not only had she been betrayed by the man she had been planning on spending the rest of her life with, her fiancé Nathan.  Not only did he betray her he broke her.
     You see when her sister Nicky came back from abroad she never thought she would have to worry about the two people she loved the most hooking up.  Well she was wrong.  Not only did they hook up behind her back, while she was at school they did it in their home.  As if that wasn’t enough she was the last to know that it had been going on for a long time and no one wanted to hurt her including her mom.
     That’s when she said enough was enough.  She told them all off packed up and left town.  Leaving no forwarding address or phone number.  Now she has her own set of rules when it comes to guys never stay in a man’s bed more than one night with nothing more than hot hard sex.  Which never allowed the men close enough to hurt her.  Then they become murky.  Because guy number one, Logan the one she picks when she shows up at her new assignment.  He the HR guy at Croven’s, ends up being a guy just as scummy as her ex because Logan it turns out is engaged too and at no time during the 6 weeks of flirting does he say a word.
     The killer is the guy she knows is totally unsafe because he wants more from it she can tell because he too is a rule player and knows the game.  And he would not play by the, her rules he would play by his rules, Marcus Brookhein, is the one that tells her too about Logan.  So, after she set Logan straight while he was jacking off in the men’s room waiting for her to come in and watch, boy was he surprised when she brought up his fiancé.  In fact he went down right pale and his member deflated at once.  She went to the hotel bar to drink off her mad and he goes for his phone.  He leaves and Marcus quietly tells the bartender to water down her drinks then he makes his move. Asking what her rules are.  He had been watching her for the past 6 weeks play Logan and Logan play her.  So, he wanted the rules up front.  Once they were met then they could move forward in his mind.  He asks again.  She says “Only players.  Only sex.  And most importantly, only one night.”  She got cocky and asked, “Do you want to play?”  Marcus says, “I’m thinking about it.”
     Game on.  See how these two use the rules to meet and beat their own rules.  Or was it torture that they like really the pain was better than the pleasure?  You’ll have to decide when you read and see for yourself.  I give this 5 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
