Great new read from a new author for me!!!
I was really intrigued about this book starting with the blurb and the cover. I love a good "Sleeping with your Boss" trope and was going into this thinking it was going to be similar to others in the same category of romance. What I did not expect was two powerful and strong people were sort of broken from their past. Penthouse Player was sinful and very unexpected. You get the good, bad, and sexy all in one twist.
Reina trumps the Queen card of what she takes on in life. Tristan will never back down from what he wants. I really was impressed with their first encounter. Tristan saw Reina and immediately claimed her from the arms of another man. This book had the high and lows. It was a true emotional rollercoaster.
Tara Leigh is a new to me author and I have to say she has a new fan! Penthouse Player was a great read. Great pace, great writing, and wonderfully developed characters. She took a fairly common trope and spun it in a new and fresh way.
Reina St. James grew up as a dirty little secret. Her father never stepped up and claimed her. Now she's ready to make it in his world and show him she never needed him. Starting her dream job at Bettencourt, her father's main competitor in the financial world, is just the first step. Then she snags the eye of Tristan Bettencourt and everything changes.
Fantastic read and one I recommend to everyone.
