Weak For Him was electrifying. Sexy. Adventurous. Bizarre. Overpowering. Incontrollable. Strange. Deliciously Insane. Odd. Mind fuckable. Confusing.



It made quite the impression on me, not always the good one, yet it is good thing that I felt that way. Why? Because my curiosity was quenched, my need for dominance satisfied, my mind

Wow! Where to start...So I was blown away by this book from the very get go. I got the pleasure of being asked to Beta read "Weak For Him" and I do not regret my decision to say yes. I was drawn in just in the first five chapters of the book. I did everything with this book from eating all the way to taking it to the bathroom with me, because I did not want to put it down. The main character Jennifer is a foul mouthed, free spirit that is tired of living a modest lifestyle and after the death of ...more

I honestly loved these characters! Jennifer was a very strong heroine and had just the right amount of sass :)

And Finn, Finn. . .He was hot. As in sweet mother of **** HOT.
And I would root for him and Jennifer if not for the overly swoonworthy Luketon

Everything about this book was INTENSE. I could barely put it down when I was reading it, and when I did, I found myself thinking about it.
And the ending. . .oooh the ending:-D All I can say is, I can't wait for the next book :)

Instead of graduating college with her peers, jennifer was burying her parents. Instead of celebrating, Jennifer was selling her childhood home. She couldn't stay in Texas, so down on her luck she heads to Vegas. In hopes of landing her dream job. But, than dream job interview doesnt go as planned...

Enter Finnley Felton. Seller of sex. Maker of dreams when your broke and unemployed.
Something is sexy and demanding about him. He's also an asshole.

I really liked the sound of this book from the synopsis and I wasn’t disappointed.

Jennifer heads to Vegas after burying her parents to start her life over. After having a stranger walk in on her in the bath and missing out on an interview at a prestigious firm Jennifer is stuck with what to do next. She receives an offer from the mystery bathroom man and decides to take her chances.

This book blew me away. I don't have the words to describe this book, so I will quote the book.

"Words never could replace emotions, no matter how powerful or well written. I'd once heard that words could move mountains, but so could Finn's lips."

I feel like words can't do this book justice. It's in a class all it's own. It evoked so many emotions in me, but mostly I felt the emotions of the main character, Jennifer Downs, loud and clear. I certainly lusted when she lusted. I was pissed when she

I just finished Weak for Him and I just freaking loved it! I was pleasantly surprised because reading the synopsis, I didn't know if I was going to enjoy it as much. Sex sells. That is the key word in this story. Jennifer has had a run of bad luck, her parents died in a car wreck so instead of planning her graduation, she is planning their funeral. That is completely heartbreaking. At the beginning of the story she is signing over her childhood home and is leaving for Vegas. She has a plan, to g ...more

A flat tire, crazy cab ride, and a minute late.

I first captured by the description of Weak For Him and lately I read few book that I liked a lot, this is one of them.

What captured my interest is the "Have you heard the saying, 'sex sells'? Well, I'm the supplier." part, after that what a Romancekolik do if not read it right? Firstly, when I start this adventure I didn't know our hero can be despicable, sometimes swagger, but a man loyal to his taboo's till the end. Although most of the book he melts me with the dialogues, I did

I thought I already knew this story, Selling Scarlett is all about a virgin auctioning off her virginity, but I was wrong.

The prologue of the book sees Jennifer leaving Texas for a new life in Vegas. She's lost everything and is looking for a new start. She gets one alright but it's not the one she was planning on. When she arrives in Vegas she has her life planned out, her career, her future, the type of home, everything. And it all changes due to one minute, just sixty seconds. Jennifer certa

This book was FANTASTIC! It was definitely deserving 5 stars. There's something that I've always found intriguing about the escort business. (Hey, after all prostitution is the oldest profession around so someone, other than myself, has got to be intrigued by it!) Because of my curiosity about this business, I love books that have them in their story line. Throw in rich men, a virgin, some other escorts, steamy sex scenes and you have all you need for a good story.

This is where Finnley Felton comes into the picture. He offers her a job but not the job she thinks.

“Love is kisses and touches and all the little things that make your body flood with emotions such as need, want, protectiveness, jealousy, hurt, and anger. It can take your breath away, or smother you at times, and make you feel like you can't go on. Your heart may race a thousand miles per minute, then slow down, and then race again, just with a simple look. Love is deadly and can kill you from the inside out if you let it. It makes you do stupid, ridiculous things, and say senseless sappy words, or listen to silly love songs, jazz, or dance in the streets, or laugh, or smile. Love is a weapon, or a drug, and can drive a person mad. I know what love is...” 9 likes
