Tempting, till the end. my first book of sylvia day, but not a last one. ( )

I enjoyed this book, though there were a few things about it that made me a little bit irritated (i.e. wish it were really that easy to just switch your life around, as Jax ended up doing). Still, that being said, I really enjoyed the relationship between Jax and Gia despite it being sort of messed up (although, I guess that was the best part, now that I think of it). ( )

I received this from first reads for an honest review. It was a quick read and I need more Jackson and Gia! They make a really great couple. Jax was the bad boy you love to hate in the beginning but he redeemed himself by the end. I understood her actions and her reasoning but in sometimes it feel like no matter what Jax did he was damned if he did and damned if he didn't.

"You're flashy, Gianna . Guys like to fuck flash. Makes 'em feel like they're banging a porn star. But that's what turns them of, too. Enjoy him while it lasts." ( )

IT WAS A breezy fall morning when I entered the mirrored glass skyscraper in midtown Manhattan, leaving the cacophony of blaring horns and pedestrians chatter behind to step into cool quiet.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0373622430, Paperback)

Never mix business with pleasure. Never bring politics into the bedroom. In a way I did both when I took Jackson Rutledge as a lover. I can't say I wasn't warned.

Two years later, he was back. Walking into a deal I'd worked hard to close. Under the tutelage of Lei Yeung, one of the sharpest businesswomen in New York, I had picked up a thing or two since Jax walked away. I wasn't the girl he once knew, but he hadn't changed. Unlike the last time we'd drifted into each other's lives, I knew exactly what I was dealing with... and how addictive his touch could be.

The inner circle of glamour, sex, and privilege was Jax's playground--but this time, I knew the rules of the game. In the cutthroat business world, one adage rules all: keep your enemies close and your ex-lovers closer...
