This book was so much fun to read! It’s the typical boss/assistant trope, but with a fantastic twist that I loved – the boss and assistant unknowingly end up starring in a sex tape that goes viral. 😉
The blurb of this book hooked me in and I wasn’t disappointed. I may not have LOVED everything about For the Win, but it was a worthwhile read that I enjoyed a lot. It’s hot and sexy, with tons of sexual tension between the main characters, and there’s a good amount of witty banter flying between them too. I was rooting for Jordan and April from the very start.
April Weiss is in trouble – the hot hookup she recorded at Comic-Con was uploaded onto the Internet without her knowledge and has gone viral, and the company she’s interning at is in hot water because of it. They don’t know that she’s the star of it, but she’s terrified of losing her internship if they find out. Not that her internship is going so well either – she’s assisting the boss from hell: Draco Multimedia’s CFO Jordan Fawkes.
Jordan relishes making April’s life a living hell, but with a specific reason. He’s the one she recorded her sex tape with, and he had no idea their encounter was ever even recorded. He’s furious at April, but she doesn’t know she slept with him, and he intends to keep it that way. What Jordan doesn’t expect is the insane chemistry that just keeps getting hotter as they keep working together. Jordan wants April bad, and try as he might to resist, once with her just wasn’t enough.
“I can’t get that night out of my mind,” he ground out as he kissed his way all over my neck and exposed chest. “I think about it all the time.” His fist tightened again in my hair, as if with renewed frustration. “How hot it was to fuck you. All i can think about is how much I want to do it again.”
For the Win can be read as a standalone, so reading Mia and Adam’s first three books in the series isn’t necessary. We get both Jordan and April’s POVs in this novel, which I liked. Jordan was a supreme ass to April as her boss, which I didn’t like. He grew on me later on, becoming a better man, but he was certainly a jerk to her multiple times. April surprised me – she was a pushover who let people walk all over her, but she manages to grow a backbone and fight for herself. I admired how much she changed and her character grew throughout the book.
I enjoyed a lot of this book, but my only complaint is how slow the romance was between April and Jordan. I liked their characters and I liked the writing, but plot-wise, it moved a bit too slow for me. I wanted to see MORE of the romance – but that doesn’t mean that I didn’t enjoy the romance at all, because I did. The tension between Jordan and April was well-written, and they’re explosive in bed. So other than the romance being slow, For the Win is still a highly entertaining read.
