Beauty. Fame. A socialite. A hotel heiress of the Perconti family. And yet Arianna Perconti didn't have it all. She didn't have her freedom to make her own life decisions until she decided to be a runaway bride and take charge of her life. She couldn't marry the man that her brother, Leo wanted her to marry in order to save their hotel empire. Instead, Ari found herself running to the man who has been her secret lover. The man who was h

Didn't like these characters. Hero and Heroine were childish/whiny/immature and bratty. Couldn't deal with them.

Ari is the sheltered younger sister with brothers who wont let her live her life, in her opinion, when she crosses paths with the man whos competing with them profesionally. Rivaling hotel owners, but Jason cant resist her either.
When Ari needs a place to stay, Jason is the first one she thinks of.
Contemporary romance, emotions and smutty fluff.
3,5 - it would have been a 4 if both the Hero and the heroine didnt have their TSTL moments.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in return
The first story in the series, At His Service: Parts 1-4, was broken up into 4 parts, but fortunately this one is all nice and complete with no cliffhangers or delayed publication dates. This has now developed into a series called "Playboys of Boston." Similar to At His Service, there's a little set-up at the end for the next book. Although I'm not sure who the book will have as the H/h, the "big bad" and overarching storyline will continue. This one isn't a cliffhanger, it just leaves some thin ...more

Ari and Jason had some serious chemistry. They played some fun and kinky games; they were a hot pair for sure. If you are looking for a sexy billionaire story with a twist and a bit of intrigue, this book will be a winner for you.

Jason could be quite the charmer, “of course not.” He pressed his lips against her shoulder. “You are so much more than a plaything to me, Ari.” He could be a caring guy, “I’m right here, princess. I’m right here.” He bent down and kissed her forehead, which made her smile. “Do you hurt anywhere else?” I liked this book, it kept my attention to the end.

For His Pleasure is the second novel in the Playboys of Boston series from author Suzanne Rock and it takes place right after the events in the first novel, At His Service, though it does begin with how Arianna Perconti and Jason Stone first meet. This is the kind of book that holds great promise because of a very enticing synopsis, but then that's what blurbs a

**This was a DNF**

The description of this book sounded so good! I was super excited to read it! But I'm sad to relay that it didn't live up to my expectations at all.

From the beginning, I didn't really like the heroine, Ari. I tried over and over to give her another chance but I just couldn't get to the point where I could even tolerate her. She kept going on and on about how she didn't want to be controlled by her brother anymore and that she

I enjoyed this one. Arianna Perconti "Ari" is the overprotected younger sister of the Perconti family. She agrees to a marriage of convenience to help her family business but she just can't go through with it. When she runs from the wedding there is only one place she wants to be and that is with Jason Stone. The Perconti family biggest rival and Ari's secret fling for the last year. Jason is wild, dangerous, and the only one who gets Ari's heart racing unfortunately he'll never be anything more ...more

Just what the doctor ordered. Family rivalries, secret longings, falling for Mr. Wrong. Ms. Rock always supplies just enough of the pleasure to make you feel guilty but not regret the experience. As with every Suzanne Rock novel there is more to Jason than he wants others to see. Ari is hell bent on solving the puzzle that is Jason. In order to do that she has to let out her inner vixen. I received a copy of For His Pleasure in exchange for an honest review. Seduction goes both ways.

For His Pleasure is the first book of a new series by Suzanne Rock. Well-written with an excellent plot, dialogue, and characters. Filled with drama, angst, secrets, greed, mystery, heartbreak, lust, and sex, For His Pleasure is a definite must-read!

This book was a little difficult for me to review. On the one hand, it has lots of hot, steamy, kinky, melt your kindle, scenes. On the other, I wasn’t really crazy about either one of the main the characters and not really crazy about the plot as a whole. It was a little disappointing because the prologue grabbed me immediately and I love Suzanne's other books.

Arianna is a young woman who is to about to get married to forge an alliance for her brother. But being in a loveless marriage, even one

The companion sequel to At His Service: Parts 1-4 and it follows Arianna Perconti and Jason Stone. Two unlikely people who come together in times of struggle. I enjoyed this book because it was a good insight on who Jason Stone was as well as Arianna since she didn't have much exposure in the first book.

Um...okay so billionaire heiress leaves groom at the altar when she decides the arranged marriage she agreed to (to strengthen the family hotel business) isn't what she wants after all. She runs to her lover of a year that no one knows about because he is the families chief competition.

Meanwhile, he has his long lost brother come back into his life and talk about the good old days when they worked as gigolos conning lonely wealthy women out of money. Oh yes, and this is happening at the same tim

This was a Goodreads giveaway that I won.
In this 2nd installment of the series, we are focusing on Ari, the sister of the Perconti family, after she's decided that she can't go through with the faux marriage that her brothers had set up in the hopes of saving their business. Neither Ari nor the man she was supposed to marry wanted to go through with it because their tastes and emotions lay elsewhere, and of course there's going to be an issue when all hell breaks loose.

Mature adult. This was a great start do a new series. It does leave off with a cliffhanger but to me it's worth reading and waiting for. Arianna runs a charity that is going is through problems and her older brother basically runs her life with her other ones putting their two bits in as well. They run a very well known hotel chain but need Ari to marry into a wealthy family to help them with money. She is tired of having her life run for her and decides to leave her finance at the alter.

I was so excited to continue this series, For his pleasure continues on after'At his service' with Ari running away from an arranged marriage to help her families business, straight into the arms of her brothers enemy Jason Stone.

Jason I was super intrigued by and wanted to learn more about him. In our previous encounters with Jason he has always come across as a ruthless business man. I wanted to peel back the layers and find out what was underneath!
Ari does a spectacular job at shaking this

This book has been hard for me to think on to review. On one hand I really did enjoy it and I enjoyed it enough to want to read the book that came before this one (and this book read very well even though it's the second in the series) as well as the ones that will follow it.
On the other hand, these characters sometimes really got on my nerves. I think there was a lot of overreacting to things. Whether it being mad at something or happy or sad, it was all done very dramatically. I kept thinking

Ari has walked away from her wedding to Landon and gone to Jason Stone. The two have been having a friends with benefits relationship for over a year. But when she starts to have more feelings for him, she is afraid where it will lead. Jason has no desire for anything more, or does he? When trouble starts to brew, will he give up his relationship with Ari? Or does he put her first and risk losing everything else?

I totally loved the first book and this one doesn't disappoint. The interaction bet

This is a mixed review.

First I have to say "YES" I will be reading the next book in this series. You can't leave a girl hanging and not expect curiosity to win. Now the only problem is I find Ari to be a bit annoying as a character. She seems immature for someone of her age. Jason has his pro's and con's but I won't get into that since you will be experiencing it for yourself.

I will say that these two were humping like bunnies. LOTS and LOTS of sex. But to have a relationship based on just tha

A fast moving story with all the details that you may have hungered for in the first book if you read Leo's story in 'At His Service'. Will not disappoint with the characters or the plot, although at first I did enter the story with the preconceived notion that Ari was a bit of a wimp - but I am pleased to say she finds her back bone by the end of the story.
Jason is the bad boy of the 1st installment of this series and his struggle to show and understand his feelings towards Ari is heartwarming

I really wanted to like this book, but I was disappointed through most of the book. Once Jason's brother showed it, I knew I already knew the ending. I still don't understand how someone can trust someone they haven't seen in 10 years and know he lives for lying. My mind was blown that they couldn't figure it out. The first sex scene between Ari and Jason was good, but after that I just couldn't believe them and started skipping them because they became a little repetitive. I will say though tha ...more

There was something that didn't really work for me and I can't exactly pinpoint it. The story was ok. Arianna needed to grow up and Jason needed to open up. While we did see some of that with Jason, I think Ari was left lagging behind to be honest. She didn't seem to mature much. Their sexual energy was good but there wasn't much depth beyond that.

This is the second book in the Playboys of Boston Novel. If you loved At His Service, you can’t miss finding out about Leo’s sister. This can be read as a standalone however. Ari was marrying to save her family from ruin but is unable to go through with it and who does she turn to, her family’s biggest rival, Jason Stone. This is a fast paced drama filled adventure with lots of steam a great read!
