Tina Borlenghi is a billionaire businesswoman, heiress to the Borlenghi fortune, and living la dolce vita. She’s also a magnet for men who crave fame and celebrity. So while in New York City launching a new fashion boutique, Tina is more than intrigued when sports bar owner Luke Pederson mistakes her for a sales assistant. He’s sexier than sin and only interested in her. What’s the harm in a little steamy role-playing?
Luke can’t get enough of Tina. And yet, something feels…off. Why is she so secretive? As their role-playing encounters become more erotic, Luke’s suspicions grow. The woman rocking his world is hiding something. Something big. He’s ready to play for keeps, but finding out who Tina really is may just turn the tables on everything he thought he knew about love.
Miss Riki’s Review:
Yes, yes, yes! This book did exactly what I have been looking for in a romance by twisting the alpha status from hero to heroine. In Turning the Tables, Tina is the alpha heroine and I absolutely loved her self-assurance and air of pure power. This is a woman who knows what she wants and has worked hard to get it, to the point that she’s sick and tired of the men that come with such a position in society and business. She’s sexy, she’s smart, and she’s foreign.
Then comes Luke, who although I wouldn’t consider him an “alpha” male, is still damned hot. He mistakes Tina for a sales assistant but isn’t at all turned off by the low position. All he sees is a beautiful woman with a sharp tongue and her wits about her and he falls head first into the relationship.
The role-playing aspect of this book fit the storyline so well based on plot, but it was also such a cool device for exploring the fantasy aspect of romance. I loved Tina and Luke together and the book excels when they are playing roles for one another.
This book was pretty short and is a quick, easy read. The romance is fulfilling and the sexytimes are steamy. It was a really enjoyable read. I highly recommend it.
