Rules will not be broken. Especially by her.
She was a strong woman.
It turned me on.
She became my personal challenge.
It made me hard.
The more she hated me, the more I relished it.
I’m determined to break her down.
I am Paxton Williams.
I’m a power player in an underworld game only few people know exist.
She knew the rules. She knew the consequences. She should know, I’m not the man to let anyone get away …
Authors Chelsea Camaron and Ryan Michele team up to push beyond the boundaries, going darker than ever before and crossing a line into a deep, dangerous, forbidden world. One where no one escapes, even if they beg to.
This is the Power Chain Series – a four book series of interconnected stand-alone romances.
If you like intense page turners you will love this book!!!
**Received ARC for a fair and honest review**
Power Player is book 2 in the Power Chain series. This book could be read as a standalone, however I personally think it is best read in order since you miss a lot of backstory and the previous characters who are deeply entwined in the book. I would rate this book at 4.5 stars. It is a fast, intense read that was hard to put down. I really loved Laurel, that super strong woman type. She didn't just buckle/cave to Paxton's will. Paxton as a character, was more into games and winning and due to issues in his life seems very insecure and not as strong as Laurel IMO. Paxton's character is why I didn't give this book 5 stars. I loved the book.
Paxton has known Laurel and has had a thing for her since they were teens. But he didn't feel that he was good enough for her. As they years passed he settled for following Laurel around and what he felt was protecting her. When she blows him off, he doesn't take that well and decides he's going to do something about it. There's more to that but I'm not going to have any spoilers in this review.
As I said I loved Laurel, though Paxton was sort of frustrating for me. I loved the secondary characters. And you do get to see Onyx, though I wish you got more Torryn for an update to their story. There is good chemistry with the characters, this is a fun storyline which to me felt quite well developed. I like the way the stories flow into each other. Overall great, hot, fun, nail biting read! Can't wait for the next book in the series. Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!
