Board Stiff (Taking Advantage #1) Reviews

5 stars – Samantha Martin’s Book Reviews

Board Stiff is a ravishing tale of primal need and the instant attraction that sparks between a man and a woman. John is a man that knows what he wants, and he wants Elizabeth. He has never experienced the raging inferno of need that engulfs him when he sees her for the first time. Since his last relationship he has strictly been a no strings attached kind of guy.

Elizabeth can’t help but feel John’s eyes on her. He is like a magnet that draws her to him. When their eyes collide the world around them just slips away. When he bursts into her office and makes his intentions known, she is not sure is she wants to slap him or tackle him.

From the first glance to the first heated kiss this story will seduce you, make you weak at the knees, arouse you, and set you free. The beauty, the simplicity of desire, and the instinctual need of two people coming together and completing one another shines through in this erotic story.

4.5 Stars – Night Owls Review Top Pick – Chris from Night Owl Reviews

John Dorsey is a dream come true. Aggressive and not afraid to ask for he wants, he enters the picture like a tornado and sweeps Elizabeth right off her feet. Their first meeting gave me the tingles and it just gets better from there. Both are at the top of their game in their respective fields and both can have their pick of partners. Elizabeth is initially put off at John’s coarse handling but her inner secret submissive self finds it intriguing. Sure she’s in control at work, but why not cut loose with John? How hot is it that they want each other and don’t let conventional relationship rules get in the way?

This is a quick read and doesn’t try to be more than that. The author starts off fast and it just goes faster. I was totally into the chemistry and sex that John and Elizabeth generate together and happy with the optimistic ending as well as the clues that Elizabeth was different for John right from the start. I really look forward to the next story in this series.

4 stars – Nicole @ Books ‘N Pearls

I liked this story. This is a short, sweet interlude. It’s an instant attraction story, so you don’t get a lot of buildup. John and Elizabeth see each other at a board meeting and are instantly attracted to each other. A brief, searing kiss has them planning a date that escalates quickly. The sex is hot. I didn’t care for the repetitive nature of the wording. A little variation in some of the words used would have been a little less distracting. But the story was still hot and will get your engine running. I purchased the book from a publisher during a sale after having my eye on it for a while and was not disappointed. I think Instant Attraction stories are fun to read, and will be reading the rest in the series. I also love that the covers seem to represent the characters in the story. It really adds to the visuals.
