exchange of an honest review This is the story of Charlotte and Jaxon Jaxon has placed an odd advertisement looking for a woman to satisfy specific needs and Charlotte applies for the job hoping to get a story out of it for her breakthrough in journalism The plot wasn t what I was expecting to be honest I was kind of taken by surprise when I realized how Jaxon felt about the women he employed and how empty felt everything to me The story is original but depth was missing The writing was good and enjoyable The book is written by dual POV and it s interesting to see how Jaxon thinks about everything Charlotte is a young intelligent woman To be honest, I didn t particularly liked her or disliked her She didn t annoy me but she did nothing to attract my interest I liked her passion but I dislike her lack of good planning.Jaxon is a very complex character I wish there wasof him in the book I missed the connection with him as he felt cold and distant to me I start liking him towards the end of the book but it was a bit too late.The end of the book felt rushed I don t want to spoil anything and that s why I cannot give you any details I will just say that it would have been nice to have someinformation about everyone before everything was dissolved I was really excited to pick Resist up because I enjoyed Breaking Noah so very, very much But this was no Breaking Noah I just didn t enjoy it as much as I had hoped that I would That s not to say that I didn t like it I did But again, it was no Breaking Noah The book had an interesting concept This dude Jaxon puts an ad out there for basically a booty call I wouldn t say that it is along the lines of a sex slave but I ll be honest, it was in the gray area between sex slave and boot I was really excited to pick Resist up because I enjoyed Breaking Noah so very, very much But this was no Breaking Noah I just didn t enjoy it as much as I had hoped that I would That s not to say that I didn t like it I did But again, it was no Breaking Noah The book had an interesting concept This dude Jaxon puts an ad out there for basically a booty call I wouldn t say that it is along the lines of a sex slave but I ll be honest, it was in the gray area between sex slave and booty call It was closer to sex slave though Can you imagine seeing that ad and then having the cojones to answer it I would have quickly marked that one out and then moved on but not Charlotte She s a gutsy character in a way She didn t quibble about the choice of filling this position no pun intended very much She seemed pretty spunky at the beginning of this novel and mouthy as hell I enjoyed how frank and honest she was because it really challenged Jaxon It created an interesting back and forth between Charlotte and Jaxon that really held my attention and had me excited for future conversations I was left feeling a bit unresolved about the ending Don t get me wrong, there was an ending and it was okay but it felt like there wasthat should have happened I have no clue as to what that would have been but I just don t think that the ending really closed off the storyline That could be because the author is planning on a sequel I have no clue but there s nothing wrong within some instances The book didn t play out anything like I thought that it would There was a suspense aspect to the book that I hadn t known about and because of that, unlike other reviewers, I think that pulls the book out of the erotica genre because it doesn t really deserve to be there I m not a massive fan of erotica just because I think that there should beto a story than just sex Resist just doesn t fit into that box, I don t think So if you re on the fence about this book just because of the word erotica being thrown around, you shouldn t be Bite

Random House Publishing Group Loveswept and Missy Johnson.Truth be told, there really isn t much to say This book promised various levels of kinky and fucked up and that s exactly what I received as I was given a glimpse into the life of Jaxon Murphy As advertised in the book s blurb, Jaxon is very tormented, very fucked up and very much a spiteful asshat I really couldn t understand his character The same holds true for Charlotte Lucas.Regarding the sex scenes, I cringed multiple times Not because they were terribly written, but because they were downright disturbing to me I won t disclose details in this review so as to prevent leaking out spoilers All I can say is that I didn t enjoy reading them, and I just couldn t muster the will to care.This book left me with conflicting feelings It took me a while to decide whether I liked the story or not as I didn t have the faintest clue of what I was looking for in the first place Now, I m not giving Resist a low rating due to all the sexual abuse, BDSM and other equally sensitive and dark content Because I knew what I was getting into when I requested for this title Rather, I m giving this book one star solely because it didn t make sense Specifically, the plot notice the use of quotation marks was driven by a nonsensical force A lot of elements didn t add up or neatly tied together The mystery regarding Jaxon s girlfriend s disappearance was both poorly planned and executed The romance, chemistry and emotional connection between Jaxon and Char greatly lacked depth Char s motivation to unearth the truth and to write hard hitting news about Jaxon s life wasn t convincing at all Really, the entire storyline seems to be a half assed idea meant to be used as an excuse to write kinky sex scenes.Actual rating 1 star In this sizzling short novel from New York Times bestselling author Missy Johnson, a young journalist goes undercover in a world of desire and gets seduced by the billionaire bachelor she s supposed to be chasing Recent college grad Charlotte Lucas thinks she has found her breakout story It all begins when she answers a provocative want ad posted by a secretive mogul who happens to be a prime suspect in his girlfriend s disappearance Young and inexperienced, Char has never been pushed to the limit until their games take her to the very edge Char has gone in looking for the truth, but now she s in way too deep with a master who plays her body like it belongs to him Jaxon Murphy knows a lot about Char than he lets on Although the media has made him out to be a monster, he s not about to come clean about his tormented past at least not before he turns this good girl bad and sends her out to do his dirty work After all, Jax didn t make it to the top without breaking some rules But as their play grows passionate and achingly real, Jax can t resist taking a shot at something that s bigger and powerful than revenge love Praise for Missy Johnson s Code of Honor Yet again Missy Johnson slays us with an impeccable story and characters that make us think Code of Honor is a beautifully written tale of a life we can only imagine Ashley Suzanne, author of Raven and the Destined series Code of Honor is dark, sexy, and deliciously enthralling Missy Johnson takes you into a dangerous world you won t want to leave Cecy Robson, author of Once Kissed In a beautiful love story I couldn t put down, Missy Johnson weaves together mob action with an element of stepbrother taboo She s for sure an author to watch Laura Marie Altom, author of The Escort Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title I love this authors stories I ve read a few and devoured them This is really brilliant hot read that I ended up reading in one sitting The

her to help him with his dirty work When Charlotte plays his game just as well as he does, he finds that he may want to put revenge aside for something , something he thought didn t exist anyThanks for the advice, but I ll pass on the guys for the moment, I say dryly That s fine She grins I m sure there are plenty of fuckable chicks here too Within the first few chapters, I was hooked to the unique plot Missy Johnson offered with Resist A handsome, wealthy, enigmatic man searching for a woman to be whatever he needs her to be Charlotte was a feisty character, driven to apply for the position to further her career I never expected for the job to be what it was, but I loved the dialogue and emotions it brought out between Jaxson and Charlotte While I loved the push and pull between Jax and Char, I found myself desperate to knowabout Jaxson s childhood, his missing girlfriend, and the revenge he was so desperate to see through She had a spark, and I can t wait to find out what she s capable of and what she s capable of putting up with.While the concept of Resist was unique, there were plot holes and continuity issues I just couldn t ignore From the sex scenes to the suspenseful story line, several scenes didn t connect with the next and left me a bit confused At one point Charlotte seemed to have a bit of distaste for her mother and later hated her, with no explanation for the change I wish Jaxson s girls would have had a lotdetail behind them, because in the end it felt like such a minor detail that I didn t understand why anyone cared or why Jaxson really needed them Jaxson felt like he was missing something, at times he seemed like an empty shell and other times full of feelings I couldn t get a true hold on who he was as a character, which made it difficult for me to get behind Charlotte s feelings While I enjoyed Resist, I felt like the last several chapters, and the closure of Jaxon s past, were rushed through I also could have gone for a very different epilogue, but that s just me She groans, her back arching against my touch She s practically riding my hand as I pleasure her.Resist is a dark novel that is a lot sexy, very kinky, and has a hint of suspense and mystery mixed in I received an ARC of this novel in exchange for an honest review and here it is 2 stars.This is the first novel I ve read by this author and although her writing skills are fairly good, I found very little to like in this book.Charlotte is a recent college graduate with a degree in journalism but no job She s 24, unemployed and just dumped

recent college graduate with a degree in journalism but no job She s 24, unemployed and just dumped her boyfriend of 3 years when she found him cheating on her One day she reads a rather cryptic ad in which the advertiser is clearly looking for a non traditional, live in assistant aka sex slave The ad is laden with sexual undertones, and when she discovers that the ad was placed by Jaxon Murphy, a kinky millionaire playboy who is suspected of murdering his last girlfriend, she applies for the position, thinking that if she can get close to him, writing an expose of his lifestyle and possible guilt in his girlfriend s disappearance murder, the newspapers will be knocking down her door to hire her and get the story Clearly, she s willing to prostitute herself to make this happen.Jaxon is clearly an alpha male, and when he interviews Charlotte for the position, he makes it clear that not only will she be at his beck and call as an assistant, she will also be at his beck and call sexually, and that she won t need to wear underwear Jaxon proceeds to give her littleto do than filing paperwork for a couple of weeks, and it s also clear that he has a small cadre of other women in residence and on the payroll whom he also pays to fulfill his sexual whims Quite frankly, I found both main characters and their behavior both lacking in depth and rather offensive I ve read many erotic romances, but although this novel sounds like an erotic romance, I found little eroticism in it Jaxon is emotionally closed off and aside from some fairly vanilla sex scenes, most of which were of the wham, bam variety, he expects submission but doesn t treat Charlotte with as much care as one would expect a dominant to treat a submissive Beyond that is the mystery of his hostility to Ryan, his business partner, and he sets Charlotte up to go so far as to sleep with man in order to pump him no pun intended for information, and Charlotte goes along with this, until she sets off a hotel fire alarm to free herself of having to sleep with the man, and she does so by steaming up the bathroom, which, by the way, in 99.9% of smoke detectors, won t set off a smoke alarm.By the time this novel finally ends, I suppose with what some would call an HEA ending, I was so sick of the main characters and their odd ethics and morality, that I just didn t care what happened to either of them
