Essence of the Challenge by SJD Peterson


The competition is on when two sexy players set their sights on one woman who has no intention of being anyone’s prize. Will the ultimate challenge be true love?

With too many relationships ending in heartache under her belt, the new and improved Symone Adams is loud, proud and on the prowl. She has removed the heart she’s normally worn on her sleeve and tucked it safely under lock and key. What she wants now is to explore the appeal of meaningless, mind-blowing sex. After six months of self-imposed celibacy hell, she heads to Menjo’s and directly into the path of two very determined players.

Zander and Marco are pros when it comes to seduction, yet each has grown bored with their conquests. When these two strangers set their sights on the same stunning beauty, the competition is on. Both embark on a full balls-to-the-wall effort to win not only Symone’s body, but her heart as well.

What none of them can predict, though, is where their chance encounter will take them, especially Marco and Zander. While the men focus on winning Symone, it’s the electricity arcing in the air between them that will be the real challenge.

I felt that this had a slightly shaky start, but it definitely got better as the inner monologues evened out into communication – even if more by physical contact than verbally! It is definitely hot, and develops into a fascinating possibility, which remains elusive, but promising. Symone's morph into vamp is quite amusing, and she seems to become more physically attractive through the story – I enjoyed her trying to deny her feelings and go with it, she succeeded far more than most people could. The interplay between Zander and Marco was fun and, as I mentioned, full of promise. I am hoping that we get to see them again as this is the first in the series, even if only as side characters.
