Sweet, seductive…and off-limits!

One rule has always worked for Elias Joss: keep your rivals close…but not too close. He didn't bring his family's construction company to new heights and incredible success by being naive.

I am never disappointed when I read a book by AlTonya Washington. Provacative Territory introduces us to Clarissa David and Elias Joss, a couple who lives intertwined before their initial meeting. Be prepared for some interesting twists and turns as their family secrets unfold. You will not be disappointed in the book or the outcome. Highly recommended.

Very good book. Chemistry was great.

Lots of suspense and mystery in this one. Imagine being summoned to your beloved Aunt Jazmina's bedside to share a dangerous secret, that only she knows about, but she dies a couple of hours before you arrive. Pretty impossible trying to figure out who is innocent and who is guilty. In addition, having handsome Elias Joss heating up your nights is not too shabby either!

Rating: 5 Divaz Starz
Synopsis: One rule has always worked for Elias Joss: keep your rivals close...but not too close. He didn't bring his family's construction company to new heights and incredible success by being naive. The only way he survived his playboy father's indiscretions was by learning to be careful and guarded. With his life all about work, there's just no room for play-especially when it comes to a certain too-tempting siren.

Great start to the Provocative Series.
First in the line up is Elias aka Eli and Clarissa aka Clay aka Clari. Love the chemistry between Eli and Clarissa from the beginning to the end.
Eli did not the whole story of the romance between his and father and Jazmina Beaumont who is the aunt of Clarissa who Clarissa is the exact image of. Eli's father had an affair with Jazmina and was going to leave his wife an only child for but Jazmina talked in out of leaving his family for her of which Eli blamed

Recommends it for: Romance
Spoiler Alert!!!
Yet again I must say you can't judge a book by it's cover. Yes, this novel falls in the hot steaming romance category. However, there was an underlying subplot that was bigger than the romance story itself. And, AND, in my opinion AlTonya Washington did a great job in developing both the story of Jazmina and the romance of Elias and Clarissa.

Overall, it was a story of forgiveness and redemption. Half of Philly hated Jazmina for her unsavory ways. At some point in her life, Jazmin
