Off the wall steamy fun dynamics go hand in hand with Talia Hunter. In the next Rich List series book, Lacey and Bronson were both characters with backbone that stood by their firmly placed stances with no room for compromise. That in itself was not a surprise, what was a surprise was how this author's skillful writing managed to not label either of them with the villain title. While their motives were different and their determination to succeed in achieving their goals was equally focused neither Lacey or Bronson came off as unlikable and their chemistry made sense. Ms. Hunter does good despair but even better she gives good resolution. With well-paced humor and sadness this story was an attention magnet from page one. Talia Hunter's writing knows its strengths and brought a seriously great read to her audience in How To Pleasure a Playboy.
*I was given an advanced copy. All opinions expressed are my own.*
*While part of a series this work can be read as a stand alone.*
HOW TO PLEASURE A PLAYBOY is the latest in Talia Hunter’s Rich List Romance series, interconnected standalones set in Australia. Ms. Hunter writes in a confident and relaxed style, and she still manages to remain eloquent: I could too easily picture the once-grand building reduced to such a state that only someone as stubborn as Lacey could insist on having it renovated; she really was pig-headed about the whole thing, even though it was mostly to placate her irascible father. I laughed out loud at the Hunger Games references, because Lacey almost made it just that with her shenanigans to make Bronson leave, which all backfired. For once, Lacey and Bronson’s bickering was not unpleasant. Although they decidedly agree to disagree, they get to know each other’s reasons better, and while nothing will make them change their minds, they cannot help the attraction that was there from the start.
Bronson was nicer about the whole situation, but he didn’t gloat or resort to dirty tricks. He could see the Baxter objectively, while Lacey couldn’t, and I did like him better than I did Lacey. Ms. Hunter writes great heroes: they are not wimps, but neither are they bullies; they feel like real people, and so do her heroines. Every character is well crafted, although I must admit my favourite was Crystal, Lacey’s elderly neighbour: she is outspoken, sympathetic, as well as naughty and sweet.
HOW TO PLEASURE A PLAYBOY is a nicely paced romance, with just enough drama to keep things interesting, and the sex scenes are really scrumptious, with the right amount of spice and sweetness. This sort of trope can easily be brought over the top, but Ms. Hunter knows how to ground her story, as demonstrated in the intelligent conversations, the lovely ending and the beautiful epilogue. Talia Hunter never fails to entertain and charm!
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
I give 4 ½ stars
The plot should not be taken to seriously, because if I start to think too hard about it I assume I would find several things that were – how to phrase this – lets say not totally developed. I found myself several times thinking “really?”, which is a clear sign of that for me.
Due to the setup and some story strings I involuntary had a cast ready in my head – so if you want to know what my setup looked like, it would be from the movie : Two weeks notice … where “Dedicated environmental lawyer Lucy Kelson (Sandra Bullock) goes to work for billionaire George Wade (Hugh Grant) as part of a deal to preserve a community center.”
And once that setup took residence in my head, I neglected to think about the parts of the plot that at first did not feel so well developed and I simply started going with the flow and that turned out quite well for me.
I think readers are going to enjoy the funny and witty banter between the leading characters so I would like to recommend this book to all the people that liked the movie I mentioned and to everybody who thinks this blurb would be something they might like to read.
Bronson Reyne has big plans for the Baxter, but renovating it is not one of them. After meeting Lacey he is pulled into a winner takes all bet in which he has to prove himself and survive one week living in the conditions of the Baxter.
With Lacey and Bronson sharing space and fighting their attraction for each other, something has to give if Lacey will be able to save the building she loves.
I enjoyed this book. Lacey is very stubborn and she really is not able to see reason of how unsafe of a condition the building she lives in is in. But, she loves it and the life she and her family has had there so she is unwilling to let it slip away. Bronson while portrayed as a playboy is anything but, and he acts like such a sweet and caring guy when it comes to Lacey, even if he can’t ultimately give her want she wants.
I would have liked a little more storyline other than the large amount dedicated to Lacey and Bronson living in the pretty disgusting ruins of the building.
This book was a light and enjoyable read. I loved the ending, and it was all in all a satisfying and well written read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
