Sage Reese lives for her job. More precisely, she lives for her debonair boss, Parker Andersen. Sage handles everything for Parker, even as she fantasizes about the one thing that isn't in her job description: him. But when a high-stakes account crosses the line from shady to deadly, a tough cop starts giving Sage the attention she

Parker Anderson. Thirty-five. An investment banker. An ex-Marine. Incredibly handsome, intimidating, successful, rich and as unobtainable as the moon. Wears five-thousand-dollar suits and walks like he owns half the city. Some call him arrogant; he says it’s confidence. Acts like a complete hard-ass, but can be considerate and kind, too.

Sage Reese. An Executive Administrative Assistant (a wannabe museum curator). Rich parents but wants to have a job on her own merits

I really enjoyed this read as it was fast paced, had mystery, intrigue and danger and of course, two hot hunky men!

My only niggly itch...I was a bit disappointed to see it was another threesome like her Kathleen Turner Series. Ms. Snow seems to have a formula for her stories: include a love triangle. I’m generally NOT a fan of love triangles but will always go in with an open mind and I must say that so far, Ms. Snow makes it work.

I’m in love again. It seems with Tiffany Snow, I fall often, I fall hard, and she keeps dishing it out. Power Play is the first novel in a brand new series from the creator of the Kathleen Turner series and the Tangled Ivy series. The queen of the love triangle brings us another fantastic trio of characters…Sage, Parker, and Ryker.

Sage…poor little rich girl…only she’s actually quite awesome. She grew up with privilege, but she’s never let it go to her head. She’

Mmmm. Not sure how to rate this one.

I just could not get the heroine ... she was thinking of one guy one minute, the other guy the next minute ... make up your mind, woman. Granted both were HOT ...



Some of the decisions, situations she got into were a bit silly ... a tad immature, I thought.

I will keep going. I know who I want her to end up with ... well, after Book 1, I do. That might change in the next book.

The queen of the love triangle has done it again! I am a sucker for a good push/pull romance and with Power Play we get it from all sides!

The lust and longing of an unrequited office romance. Parker Andersen is a no nonsense business powerhouse. He demands perfection and that things be done his way. His assistant Sage Reese is completely at his beck and call. Sage admires her demanding boss and can work for him like few before her has. She is an asset to him in the office a
This is a story about two men with a long past with each other and the woman who comes between them. One wears expensive suits and has a powerful, authoritative presence and the other is a charming bad-boy with striking blue eyes and a wicked grin. The woman is beautiful with a likable personality; being inside her head is pretty entertaining often amusing. She also has a tendency to do really stupid things at dumb times to land herself in dangerous situations.

Does ANY of this sound familiar?

1.) I stopped reading around 33% into the book. So I don't know how the book ended, but I've read the blurb for the next book so I know who she ended up with.

2.) I for some reason just can't find this kind of books any good. And, what I mean when I say this kind of books are those that spend way too much time describing how sexy every character are all the time. Ever time the main character sees any of the two male "sexy as hell" character she just swoons how sexy they are and how she just want

Love triangles are always a risky genre for me. More often than not, it seems like I end up with my heart broken when the girl doesn't pick "my" guy and he doesn't get the HEA that I wanted. However, Tiffany Snow is one of the very few authors whose love triangles I will take a chance on without reading reviews first or asking my trusted book friends if they would recommend it.

Power Play hooked me from the first page and I found it hard to put this book down. The characters, the chemistry betwe

From the moment that I read the blurb for this book, I was excited. It sounded just like the kind of story that I would like and reminded me so much of one of my favorite will-they or won't they couples on television, Suits’ Harvey and Donna. The ambitious, smart, handsome, charming boss with the indispensible secretary (Sorry, Sage, I should say Administrative Assistant). The woman that knows him better than himself. The woman that he couldn't be without. So, knowing all of that, I was absolute ...more

If you listened to or read the Kathleen Turner series by Tiffany Snow, you will not be surprised by the subject matter of her new series, Risky Business. Having fallen in love with her prior series, I thought I would give Power Play a shot. Well, I am somewhat saddened to say that while I’m sure you will enjoy Power Play if you missed her prior series, for those of you who didn’t, the romantic lovers’ triangle arc an

"He was thirty-five, incredibly handsome, successful, wealthy– and as unobtainable as the moon. But that didn't mean I couldn't enjoy the view."

Maybe I'm in the minority but I LOVE a good love triangle. There is just something so exciting about a love story with two heroes. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea but it's mine. What can I say? I love options! And Sage Reese has two very yummy options to choose between. First is Parker; her boss. He is a demanding workaholic who is a little cold an

Sage Reeves lived a quiet life, she was working for Parker Andersen as his Administrative Assistant (who she is secretly in love with) she works long hours and is basically at his beck and call. Sage was known to date but her last boyfriend thought she was tied to her job and not great in bed so that didn’t work out.

Then all of the sudden in literally a matter of days she is mixed up in a Russian mob scandal about sex trafficking and kidna
Once again, I have finished a novel written by Tiffany Snow and I find myself awestruck. Power Play, the first installment of the Risky Business Series was everything I expected from the talented Ms. Snow plus so much more. If I had to sum up book one of this series, it would be The Kathleen Turner Series on steroids. It's bigger and better than before with more drama, more romance, and more suspense – just more of everything that I came to love in the other series.

No, no! Not again!
I get it, romance is not the most innovative genre. Much of its spell comes from playing well-known motifs time after time. It is also not unusual that authors tend to write stories similar to each other. But this is an exaggeration! This book is so similar to No Turning Back it’s ridiculous!
Well, let's see:
First person narration – Check
Bridget Jones-like heroine who is so silly that it suppose to be funny – Check

This author's love triangle series should come with a “flashing light” warning because there is a chance you'll be left heartbroken like I was after The Kathleen Turner Series.

But that was then and this is now! Like forbidden fruit, the temptation to read another action packed, sexy page turner by Tiffany Snow is just too great a pull for my will-power. Is this like the Kathleen Turner! The foundations laid in Power Play provide the potential for the Risky Business Trilogy to be an

Gahhhhh How does this author get me EVERY SINGLE TIME! I LOVED IT!
Let’s talk real for a second shall we? We all have our favorite authors, our “go to authors” if you will. The ones we don’t even give a second thought to one-clicking when they release a new one. When I begin a Tiffany Snow book I KNOW I am going to get a well written, well edited, fast paced, Romance/Suspense book. I also know that NOBODY does love triangles like this author.

Sage is Parker's secretary - excuse me, I mean executive administrative assistant. She's had a crush on her boss for years but knows he doesn't even notice her. So when the hot detective, who seems to loath her boss, comes and asks her out, why would she say no? What Sage doesn't realize is that she is now in the middle of two feuding ex-best friends, a murder investigation, and the Russian mob.

This book was only okay for me. I decided to give it a try after hearing about the Harley riding, le

5 Stars

Parker Anderson is the Director of Investment Analytics at KLP Capital and exudes power and confidence. Sage Reese is the Executive Administrative Assistant to Parker. Sage goes above and beyond the call of duty for Parker, their relationship is strictly professional. Though Sage harbors a one sided crush for Parker, she doesn't want to feed the boss/secretary cliché.

When Parker takes on a new account, Sage is inadvertently thrown in

Hmm. I feel like Sage's going to end up with Parker anyway... because the last book's cover shows a woman with a man wearing a suit. LOL!

Yes! Yes! Yes! Finally, a series I can obsess about as much I did the Kathleen Turner series! Is it Kathleen Turner 2.0? Not at all, but it is the wonderful mess of a love triangle style Tiffany Snow became known for. I am beyond thrilled about it!

This story is told by Sage. She is an only child of wealthy parents trying to make her own way in the world of high finance. Parker is her boss. He is punctual, routine, exacting, self focused, dominating of Sage's time, and oh yeah, tall dark and sexy
Warning!!!!!! This book contains an epic amount of love triangle. Let's just get that out of the way.

Power Play is the first installment in Tiffany Snow's adult romantic suspense series titled Risky Business. I liked this book a lot actually...despite the dreaded triangle. I actually didn't mind it too much and that's pretty rare for me. I did however very much mind the seemingly manipulation of our sweet heroine: Sage by the two heroes in this book. It got pretty annoying after a while but


Okay, I liked it and I'm continuing with the rest of the books, but I found a lot of things were too similar to the KT series so I kept comparing the characters and my feelings towards the first book of KT to this one, so yes, I liked this one, and it was very entertaining but didn't love it and the characters as much as how when I first read book 1 in KT that I was debating my rating between 3 and 4 stars.

I still liked the chracters, there was suspense that kept me intrigued, some funny p

I received an ARC of Power Play from Grand Central Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
Power Play is classic Tiffany Snow, the writer I loved which gave me suspense and romance in my book. I was a little scared to read another of Tiffany's love triangles, but I am so glad I did. Sage is a likable heroine who has a thing for her hot boss and then finds herself attracted to his former best friend.

I received an ARC of this book about a week ago and finally had time to read it and did it all in one seating. It is fast paced as most of Tiffany Snow's books are and it is impossible to put down. Love all the major characters and boy, can she really create devious and evil villains! From some of the earlier reviews, I see choices of their favorite heroes have been made. Unlike those reviewers, I like both male characters although I am not very sympathetic towards Sage because she has the envia ...more

I think my faith in Mrs. Snow has been restored with POWER PLAY!
I have read all of her books. And like many of you, fell in love with her writing and her characters in KTS ( Kathleen Turner Series).
Tiffany Snow has an amazing ability to write characters (ehh at least most of whom) that you'd want to actually know and be friends with in real life.
With POWER PLAY Tiffany Snow brings back the ♡triangle♡ that she is so clearly the Queen of; with Sage, Parker and Ryker.

Reviews say it is a bit repetitive.
Love triangle with a touch of suspense.

There is a cliffhanger... so you need to read Book 2 for resolution.
