playing with fire elements of love 2 Reviews
Ok this book was so freakin' good. You absolutely hate the main character Ryhs as he is such an asshole, but then you start rooting for him. It was truly a roller coaster ride that I didn't want to end. Would recommend this book to all my 18+ old friends as it is a love story with a hint of naughty. ;)
OkIt was good. A little predictable. It's the first romance I have read in a long long long time. I guess it was alright
Playing with Fire is a New Adult book by Callie Sparks, and a companion novel to her debut novel, Hot Water. Where the first novel is lighthearted and fun, Playing with Fire goes a little deeper and has a bit more bite. Alex Bliss is the first female Junior Associate at Williams & Williams, and no one is more unhappy about her presence than the misogynistic Rhys Bradley. I read Hot Water first, though it is not necessary, and I was not a fan at all of Rhys Bradley. There, he is the supposed best friend of Caden Williams, one of Hot Water's main characters and CEO of Williams & Williams. He's terribly competitive with Caden and not the type of best friend I'd ever want. Rhys sees women as just another notch in his belt, and at first, it seems like Alex is no different. But, she's smart - probably smarter than Rhys even - and she knows more about Rhys Bradley than any other woman in the room. Plus, she's got the drive and determination to be successful thanks to an Autistic brother and family that needs her support. Nothing is going to get in Alex's way, especially not Rhys. But life has a way of derailing us when we least expect it, and this is where Playing with Fire really grabs the reader's attention. Rhys faces an unexpected challenge - although it is completely plausible for a man with his history - and the only person who can help him is the one person he doesn't want help from - Alex Bliss. Will Alex and Rhys find a way to get past their boardroom competitiveness, or will Rhys's past ruin his chance at both present and future happiness?I enjoyed Hot Water a lot because it was lighthearted, romantic and fun. I enjoyed Playing with Fire more, though, because it dove deeper into why Rhys is the way he is and how he got to where he is in his life. Because of this, I was rooting for him to come out on top by the end of the novel. I felt like both Alex and Rhys are very believable in their struggles with one another and with their lives. I also liked some of the darkness that seeps into the book, and thought it was just enough without overwhelming the entire story. The plotting is fast-paced, the energy is electric and the sexual tension oozes throughout the novel. This is a highly entertaining, enjoyable sophomore novel from Callie Sparks, and definitely worth making an appearance on your Nook or Kindle this summer!
Alex Bliss is driven to become one of the best at Williams and Williams. Nothing and no one will get in her way. When she realizes the cocky and oh so chauvinistic pig, senior associate Rhys Bradley is the same Rhys that broke her BFF's heart and drove her to her death, things in the office just became a little more interesting. Alex's goal is not only to be on top, but to avenge her friend and bring Rhys crashing down. Rhys not believing that William & William would allow a woman as a junior associate set his eyes on bringing Alex down. However, unexpected events in Rhys's life bring him to the mercy of Alex and he finds he needs her more then he has ever needed anyone else.
I have to admit, I started this book fully hating Rhys- and felt that there wasnt much that would change that. Yet again tho Callie comes thru and uses her great character building and gets you right in the heart! I have to admit, I laughed a lot in this book, loved seeing Rhys so out of his element. And really rooted for Alex who has such a good heart and drive to succeed. You dont have to read the first in the series to read this but It def gives you a better picture of the change that Rhys goes thru. A definite read especially if you read Hot Water!
Rhys is actually able to redeem his selfish ass in this book. It is darker than the first one. Rhys and Alex both have real problems in which they have to deal. It is worth reading. Rhys was such an a-hole in the first book I wasn't sure I wanted to read this, but I am happy I did.
My heart just broke for this man. IN the first book Rhys wasn't my Fave person but now he is......
This was insane and crazy!!!! There is no way I would fall in love with someone my BFF slept with! Girl code b-word!!!!! At least he changed into a better person but holy crap man....
