Synopsis

"Have you heard the saying, 'sex sells'? Well, I'm the supplier." 

Finnley Felton sells sex. Jennifer Downs is a virgin. With the help of lady luck, the two meet. Money. Bright lights. Sex. Jennifer is made an offer: sell her virginity to the highest bidder and transform into one of Finnley's girls. But she finds herself weak for him, and doesn't fully realize what she's agreed to until it's too late. Will she rise to the challenge and play by the rules in a land where money is king and love is prohibited? Or will she lose herself and values in the attempt? Weak for him is not considered a "dark" read, but does have unlady-like language, adult subject matter, and s-e-x-ual situations. Weak for Him does not have a cliffhanger. There is resolution but the story does continue on. "If you think I am bluffing by when I say that "Weak For Him" will give you the ride of lifetime, then I say, take a gamble and see for yourself." –Tiffany @ The Naughty Book Dames"

Excerpt
Mr. Felton stood facing the windows in a neatly pressed suit. The black tie complemented the black suit, designer from head to toe. His green eyes met my brown gaze, and I smiled, but only received the ghost of one in return. Once the secretary left us, I searched the room, trying to take in every little detail: abstract art on the wall, a conference table in the back, and a lounge area in the middle. The afternoon light cast a yellow glow in the room. A large oak desk, which screamed business executive, had two chairs tucked in front. The room looked comfortable, welcoming, but also professional. The red velvet curtains that overlooked the atrium were jerked closed. "Hi, Finnley. Thank y—" "It's Mr. Felton." My face flushed. How could I be so inconsiderate and unprofessional? I immediately felt stupid. "Mr. Felton. Thank you for allowing me to interview. I've brought my resume and a list of recommendations. I'd love to join your accounting team if you'd allow me." I outstretched my hand and he left me standing there, awkwardly. The smile faded from my face as he leaned against the wooden desk with his arms crossed. "Take off your clothes." His voice was low and silky. "Excuse me?" The words hit me like cool water. I don't think so, asshole. "The interview has begun, Ms. Downs. If you'd like to join my team, you will do what I say and if you'd prefer not, you are more than welcome to turn around and walk that tight ass through the door, and we can pretend as if this never happened." The fierce tone behind his English accent made me cower. I froze as I calculated my next move. What the fuck? The way he looked at me, exploring my body as if he were undressing me, made my stomach flip. No one had ever observed me that way. With a sprinkle of courage, I searched the blank matter-of-fact expression that covered his face. This man was all business. As his long eyelashes hit the tops of his slightly sun-kissed cheeks, I closed my eyes to regroup my thoughts, then opened them quickly. I couldn't let my nerves get the best of me. He moved his messy hair behind his ears, and then sat on the desk, waiting, wanting, daring me to make my move. "Have you decided? Or are we going to waste the good portion of my time daydreaming?" I swallowed. All I ever wanted to do was live in Vegas among the lights and fast-paced city. How did I get myself into this? Take off my clothes? I wasn't some cheap whore to be bossed around. The thought of undressing in front of him disgusted me… or did it? My heart sped as he watched with a lust and want so fierce I shivered. It was now or never, you only live once, right? I peered behind him and stared at the Vegas strip in the distance. With perfect plump lips, and straight white teeth, Mr. Felton smiled at me. In that very moment, I decided to gamble. I didn't know why because I wasn't much for risks. If anyone was a play-it-safe type of girl, it was me. But in that moment, I wanted to be someone different. I wanted to know the outcome of what waited on the other side. I played with lady luck to see what hand she dealt. Maybe I would get lucky.

REVIEW:
**** FOUR STARS FOR WEAK FOR HIM****
This book is getting four stars from me. It was a powerful, hot, steamy, jaw dropping, mind fuck of a read.
Jennifer Downs is leaving the life she knows. She's selling her childhood home in Texas after the death of her parents and headed to Vegas for a new adventure. When she finally arrives in Vegas she checks in at her hotel and meets Finnley Felton in a very unexpected and embarrassing way!
Jennifer Downs woke the following morning to find a letter under the door offering a job opportunity from Finnley. Brushing it off she gets ready for the already planned job interview but ends up being turned down for the job. Desperate to stay in Vegas and not head back to Texas she calls Mr. Felton for his job interview.
Upon arriving Jennifer is surprised that the job she is being interviewed for it nothing near what she was expecting. But not wanting to go back to Texas she takes the challenge and agrees to be one of his "girls", one of The Elite. The Elite is a Call Girl service and Jennifer the Virgin finds herself thrown into learning all there is she needs to know about being one of The Elite.
Jennifer finds herself drawn to Finnley but being one of his girls means no relationships, no love, just sex. When she is matched up with Luketon Brand she finds that he wants more than just sex. He is a true gentleman and she finds her self interested in him. But her heart strings keep pulling her back to Finnley.
This story was very unexpected. I wasn't sure what I expected going into it but I found myself not wanting to put it down. It was very different and kept my interest and how it was going to all pan out. I love all the characters and the parts they each play. I must say my FAVORITE was when Jennifer was in the dressing room after trying on dresses and she gets into trouble for having TO MUCH fun. I was laughing. I also find myself torn between both Finnley and Luke. I love them for different reasons. And the surprise at the end left me saying WHAAAAAAT! I look forward to reading the next book! It just needs to HURRY UP AND COME OUT ALREADY!
So FOUR scorching hot, über sexy, oh my god i'm in love Stars for Weak For Him!!!!!! -Holly with Pretty Lil Page Turners
