The media calls him the “sexy senator.”

Cold, wickedly handsome, and too cocky for his own good, he gets what he wants with filthy promises and a smirk.
I had no plan to be that girl.

But that was before he found out my secret.

Before he made me a proposition—one semester. Anything goes. And my problem would go away.

You are going to LOVE hot, cocky, dirty-talking Graham! No joke, my panties melted right off. He's a man with an agenda, but sweet, conservative Eleanor is just the girl to match his strength.

She's in a financial jam after her father cuts her off, and Graham is ready to use her for his game of revenge... Only this player is about to get played.

Sparks are flying everywhere, and you're going to LOVE it. HIS PAWN is fantastic.

Holy dirty talking goodness. A strong, confident, bossy AF man that knows what he wants and goes after it whole heartily. Sometimes the best laid plans go off track and a whole new future can be found...or not? This book was addictive, well written with some the hottest banter I have ever read.

Holy hell, that was HOT! I'm embarrassed to say that this is the first book I've read by Emily Snow, and I'm still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor.

Graham aka Senator Sexy Ass is a dirty talking son of a bitch with an agenda. He's domineering and ruthless and my God, I couldn't get enough. When he sets his sights on Eleanor, he goes balls to the wall.

But Eleanor is no pushover. Somehow she falls for him while managing to keep her backbone. She's no weak, pushover and I loved that about he

I’m not sure I can write about His Pawn without blushing and needing to fan myself, because this romance is deliciously naughty and scorching hot. Graham is an alluring, wealthy, young senator who has a vendetta against Eleanor’s father. Eleanor is 11 years younger than Graham and about to finish college when he decides to seduce her as an act of revenge against her dad, and, wow, does he hypnotically and thoroughly seduce her.

Graham and Eleanor’s dynamic is charged by their intense chemistry an

Ohhh YESSS Senator Graham Delaney...he will definitely make you forget all of the above!! lol

Y'all, His Pawn was sooo freaking good. I could hardly get anything done while reading because all I wanted to do was get to the end. I was sooo sucked in and just had to find out what was going to happen next. lol

Ooooo I love a good scandalous novel and this does NOT disappoint!
Senator Graham is a tease and very dirty! He has this mystery about him that makes him intriguing.
Elle is the daughter of another Senator who has no idea she met her match with Graham.
The pages are filled with scandals and the characters are not to be trusted.
This is one of those novels you could read over and over again without getting sick of the drama!

His Pawn by Emily Snow is the story of Senator Graham Delaney and Eleanor 'Elle ' Courtney.
Elle is so close to graduation from College but after a falling out with her parents they withdrew their financial support.
Graham is a hot sing Senator who knows what he wants but doesn't do commitment. But when he meets Elle he knows he wants her. Graham goes so far as to make her an offer for him to get what he wants and her to meet her goal.

I didn't realize there was a book out for Graham until I read Love Hurts and I just don't think I was prepared. Luckily, many years have passed and even though Graham isn't done dealing with things, he is moving on.

We do get some of that history of who he is moving on with so that was no surprise. What was a surprise was how much of a dirty talker Graham is...and I don't mean that in a good way.

Don't get me wrong, I love those dirty talkers but Graham has an agenda and he just pushes thi

OH MY!!!!!! Checkmate!!!!

Emily Snow you might have changed my views on politicians. ; ) I love Snow's books they are sexy, fun, flirty and filled with angst. And she did not disappoint in this book. And holy crap did she turn up the heat in this one. Senator Delaney has no filter when it comes to Elle and what he wants. And he wants her in the worst way. And he's not going to stop until he has her.

I loved everything about this book. From the storyline to the characters created. Senator Delaney

Pretty sure its no lie that I love me an asshole in a book. Ms. Snow decided to take a male character, make him a dick and nail the hell out of it. Graham was everything that we love to hate and love to want. She writes a female that is sassy and a male that will let his every thought come out of his mouth, but yet, you are still left dying for more words and more time to get into every dirty thought that comes out of his Graham's mind.

This was the first story by Emily Snow for me and I have to say...I think I am addicted. Puhlease tell me this will be a series because those Delaney Brothers are AHMAZING!

Graham is, well...he's...kind of a jerk but I couldn't get enough! Like a good jerk? Is that possible?

There were many things here that pulled me in on this one...and I am not sure what to say without giving away the goods. The drama/danger factor kept my attention to the forefront...the attr

***ARC provided by author in exchange for an honest review***

His Pawn is a unputdownable contemporary new romance by Emily Snow, that is light on politics and full of emotion.

Eleanor, daughter to Senator Courtney, has been cut off and needs money quickly. In strolls Senator Graham Delaney, a hot AF, self assured, dirty talker, grabbing the perfect opportunity for revenge. An indecent proposal, a flawed plan, and a desperate need for each other creates an intriguing story!

Woah, dirty talking still my heart. This book was awesome, at first I wanted to slap the taste out of Graham's mouth, he was so dang cocky, but it didn't take long for me to warm up to him. This book was a page turner for sure, I enjoyed every minute of it. The pacing the story itself. This author can really tell you a story, and it was fantastic. Told in dual pov.

Elle knows how to entertain her man, "...I’m twenty-two,” I say. “For what it’s worth, your thirty-three-year-old *** could learn a thing or two from my eclectic musical tastes.” His lips do that sexy, smirking thing..." From the beginning I knew Elle and Graham were perfect for each other, they called each other out on their crap, “oh, I heard you. My balls are still thawing from all the ice you dripped all over them.” There are times Graham is just so out of his element with his woman, “what t ...more

When Graham meets Elle Courtney interviewing for a waitress position at a local dive-y sports bar one night, he immediately realizes two things: 1) he recognizes her as the daughter of a fellow Senator of the same party, and 2) h
