Millionaire bad boy Jordan Fawkes has problems. Big problems.
That molten-hot intern he hooked up with at Comic-Con is now his assistant. No one can know they’re the stars of the cosplay sex tape that broke the Internet.
Business school hopeful April Weiss has drama. Big drama.
Working under the CFO of Draco Multimedia should be the opportunity of a lifetime for her, but Jordan Fawkes is the boss from Hell—a sexier-than-sin boss from Hell who holds all the cards for her future career.
And then there’s the small problem of a certain video…
It wasn’t too long ago that I read the first book in this series, At Any Price. I couldn’t wait to read another book by Brenna Aubrey and luckily, this one can be read as a stand-alone as it focuses on different characters.
For The Win did not start how I expected it to after reading the synopsis. I was expecting for the story to begin with April and Jordan meeting at Comic-Con and to go from there. Instead, the book starts with April waking up to find the secret sex tape she made has been broadcast over the internet and has gone viral! I really enjoyed the beginning of the book as it started off with a bang and got right into the good stuff.
While the issue of the sex tape is quite a funny one Brenna Aubrey does also bring in details of how something like this could really affect people in the workplace and I appreciated this. It wasn’t a topic that was written about and then made to sound as if it was an okay thing to do.
April is the one that filmed them having sex at Comic-Con but she has no idea that it’s Jordan who she slept with. As they were both in costume she wanted it to be an anonymous night of excitement. After realising that the video was somehow uploaded onto the internet and gone viral, she’s so embarrassed and doesn’t know what to do. The company she works for knows about the video and that it was an employee, if not two who starred in it.
Jordan has had a thing for April since she started her as an intern and the sexual tension between the two is amazing. Jordan comes across as a hard ass boss but only because he’s trying to stay away from April. He doesn’t seem able to keep himself away from her no matter how much he knows he should. Jordan knows it was April in that video and lets her know so but this ends up with him having a kind of power over her. Not that he blackmails her or anything but she feels like she has to put up with him because of what she knows.
For The Win is a really fun and intense novel. The characters were great and together they were even better. The plot focuses on April finding out about the guy in the video and also her attraction to Jordan. I really enjoyed the ‘we shouldn’t but we’re going to anyway’ aspect of the plot because it meant there was a hell of a lot of tension between April and Jordan so when anything did happen it was hot as hell! I thought that Mia and Adam were hot in the first book but April and Jordan certainly rivalled them in this department.
I can’t get enough of Brenna Aubrey at the moment and wish she had another book out soon!!
