Hollywood Players Club: Mason - Alexis Adaire
Reading Challenge Category: Free ARC from Booksprout
Business is business… until it gets extremely personal. Mason Stark: As owner of a Hollywood talent agency, I've caused fists to be slammed on desks all over town. My negotiating skills have earned me the nickname "Mason Shark." I get what I want in this town because I refuse to bow down to anyone. I'm handsome and rich, and my buddies and I get more tail than we can handle. Somehow I've managed to convince the gorgeous owner of a rival agency to make a friendly wager, and when she loses she'll have to serve as my private sex slave for an entire week. Why would she make such a bet? I don't know, and to be honest, I don't give a shit. Claire Jarrett: Mason Stark means nothing to me. Sure, he's breathtakingly sexy, but he's also a key business rival who, in less than twenty-four hours, has insulted a major studio head, said actresses don't deserve equal pay, and had restroom sex with an important colleague of mine simply to piss me off. Stark is a total alpha male dick and I will do just about anything to win our bet and avoid having to submit to his every whim for a week. So why do I keep imagining what would happen if I lose?
I read book one in this series ages ago but then never got around to reading the rest. So, when the second book popped up on Booksprout as the author is rebranding the series, I grabbed it! This is just as fiery and steamy as I remember the first book to be. There is no holding back on the sex scenes; they are graphic, erotic and dirty! I really liked Claire, she was so feisty, and her personality didn’t change as she became enamoured with Mason. She remained a ball-breaker, and this was great as so often the woman becomes weak when she falls for a dominant male. The author really has a knack for getting this right as I said something similar about the female lead in the ‘Drake’ book. Claire and Mason were really well matched, and I thought it fun when she was trying to bring Mason down a peg or two. I was holding my breath to see who would come out on top. Who did win the bet?!? This was a very different book to the steamy ones I usually read. There are multiple partners for the protagonists, and it read as more of a real scenario rather than make-believe. I’m really looking forward to the other two books in the series, especially Link who we got to meet a little more in this book. He sounds like a tank, so his story should be fascinating. This was a fast-paced and exciting book and a great escape from reality.
