Romance Review | For the Win by Brenna Aubrey

Overview: Millionaire bad boy Jordan Fawkes has problems. Big problems. 
That molten-hot intern he hooked up with at Comic-Con is now his assistant. No one can know they’re the stars of the cosplay sex tape that broke the Internet.

Business school hopeful April Weiss has drama. Big drama. 
Working under the CFO of Draco Multimedia should be the opportunity of a lifetime for her, but Jordan Fawkes is the boss from Hell—a sexier-than-sin boss from Hell who holds all the cards for her future career.

And then there’s the small problem of a certain video…

My Review: A very inappropriate but I like it 4 stars for Brenna Aubrey's For the Win. The story line can be considered cliche but I think it does well to hold its own and develop. Aubrey's a talented writer and does a great job at shaping both Jordan and April. The only reason the story lost a star for me was the ending was happy but it didn't wrap everything up in a pretty bow with like an epilogue that sees the couple in say six months to a year making it and being further in love. 

What I really enjoyed was Jordan. Jordan, oh, Jordan. The man is a devilishly charming man with just the right amount of asshole mixed in. Honestly, he's such an asshole but that's why I was laughing through all the first ten chapters of the book. He's confident, witty, clever, sexy, charming, and a downright dick. He's been burned before and took up the policy that nice guys really do finish last so he won't be a nice guy. He grows and shapes until it is obvious that April has a hold on him that he can't quite shake.

April is smart, has some daddy issues and parenting issues, but is a good young woman. She struggles with expressing herself in regards to standing up for herself. In other words, April is a doormat a lot of the times. Well, a doormat to the outside world but has a pretty sassy mouth in her mind until Jordan coaxes her to snap a bit. April is just as taken with Jordan as he is with her, even if he is a dick. 

The two push each other's buttons, hurt one another, and fall into each other. They say love is merely a sickness, an obsession, and these two can attest to that. Jordan can't get April off the brain, and to a degree, away from his cock. April can't give up Jordan because she's addicted. The two are good for one another and it takes some pushing on April's part for Jordan to see that love is always worth the risk.
