Moment of Weakness by Toni J. Strawn

The 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.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is a fun, sexy and enjoyable read. It is the first in the series, so leaves the ending open – but in a good way.

I found the acts and thoughts of the two leads to be very entertaining. Their actions were regularly hot and most often in complete contravention of their words. I always enjoy it when the female lead is reluctant to get involved, and institutes men's rules – for a man to want to break them. She does a reasonable job of continuing to maintain control, and not appear to capitulate too quickly – which can be annoying. The writing is good, the pace fast and the story has enough depth.

I do hope Ms. Strawn is busy creating book 2 for our entertainment.

Toni Strawn lives in the beautiful South Island of New Zealand, the adventurers’ playground. Like all writers with an overactive imagination, Toni would prefer to throw her heroines off a cliff with a book of matches, string and a rusty Swiss-army knife, than do any adventuring of her own. A self-confessed tom-boy, Toni likes her heroes tough and her heroines tougher.

While not furiously trying to wreck her heroine’s lives before finding them a happily ever after, Toni can be found feeding her addiction to paranormal romance novels. Get Toni’s must-have reading list of paranormal romance series here.
