[Kame's Review]: "Power Play"

Power Play by Mallery Malone
Publisher: St. Martin's Griffin (August 5, 2014)
Series: Billionaire's Club: New Orleans, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Raphael Jerroult a.k.a. the Crescent City Casanova, has fought his whole life—both in and out of the boxing ring. Watching his father suffer for years after his mother’s death, he’s resolved to envelop himself in a shell made of money, MMA matches, and a different woman every day. But when an old flame, and the only woman he’s ever truly let in, comes back in his life, Raphael can’t stop being distracted by the red-headed beauty with the curves that go on for days…

Macy Lovelace has no desire to start things up again with Raphael. Memories of the sweetest torture she’s ever known can’t make her forget that he’s not cut out for long-term love. But Macy’s the only girl who Raphael ever let in, the only girl who really knows his sexy, dangerous side. And with the Crescent City Casanova, the only way to keep up, is to be tied down…

Kame's Review:

Macy has been on Raphael's mind for ten years. He often sees a woman with red hair from across a room, walks over to her and comes to the realization it is not her; that did not happen at Sebastian and Renatta's party - it WAS Macy.

I liked Macy in book 1, Knock Out alot and that grew even more in this book. She is a spunky redhead who never stopped loving Raphael. Raphael is a great business man who seems to have taken to his playboy ways because he lost the girl. There are things he did to woo Macy that made me go "Awww". Together they were great; and I really enjoyed how they communicated and did just fester over things.

The plot was easy to follow and no real heartbreaking scenes. It was an incredibly quick read - a little to short for me as I really enjoyed this couple.

A great followup to the first book in the series and I have already requested book 3

4 1/2 STARS!
