RELEASE BLITZ - Lyra Parish - Weak for Him
Title: Weak for Him (Weakness #1)
Author: Lyra Parish
Genre: New Adult
Release Date: January 11, 2014
"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"
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?"
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.

I received an ARC of Weak for Him, in return for an honest review.
Jesus, Mary mother of Joseph! Hold on while I go down a pint of anything that contains over 75% ice! Jeepers is this book HOT , my fingers have been singed!
Bloodeeeeee-Hell I knew that was going to be on the high end of HOT as let's face it, it's all about the sex industry, but I wasn't expecting this to scorch as much as it did. Considering how long it takes for full on penetrative sex to happen this book just blows the freakin heat factor through the roof right from the start!
Although this says #1 in the series and the next book Weak Without Him carries on their story, this (without giving anything away) does not finish on a cliffhanger which is refreshing. I am intrigued as to where #2 will go with their story, there is several possible avenues as enemies certainly get chalked up during this book and trysts that may well turn nasty, oooh it just enforces the need to read on in this series.
To be honest I wasn't sure that I was going to like Finnley, truth be told I didn't warm to him straight away and I also struggled a little with Jennifer's decisions and what felt like lack of self respect at the start. Especially when she was stood in Finnley's office and she just did what he asked. Seemed a little too 'oh well, whatever' in my opinion. Arguments screamed in my head that after the sale of her family home she really doesn't need to go down this avenue, she has time to sort herself out. So when she does what Finnley wants my inner sensible subconcious had a bit of a hard time agreeing with it. But jeez their chemistry was off the friggin chart from the get go and then factor Luke into the mix and bam there is confusion abound, so my inner subconcious took a back seat and didn't argue with me anymore.
If you're after a hot erotic read, full of chemistry and like living on the edge of what may or may not happen then you'll love this and I have to say your in for a right treat.
