Blog Blitz Review & Giveaway ~ Weak (Weakness #1) for Him by Lyra Parish

Weak for Him Cover

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"  

Teaser 3


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.

Love could be cruel, toxic, and overpowering. 


Yea. That works, but I’m gonna add a few more words to describe this story:


The man was fucking intoxicating to the bone and I hated him for putting a spell on me. I didn’t believe in love at first sight, but lust, yes, I was a firm believer of lust at first sight. That asshole. 

Jennifer had a plan when she moved to Las Vegas. She wanted to leave her life in Texas behind, especially after her parents’ death. Things started off terribly as soon as she showed up in Vegas. First a man walks in on her in her hotel room while she bathes then she gets a flat tire and shows up late for a very important job interview; a job in which all her future hopes rested. But what happens next maybe just what she needed, or it could be just the beginning of something completely different.

“You drive me crazy. Your hair. Your smell. Your innocence.” 

Finnley Felton wants Jennifer. After walking in on her in her hotel room, he offers her a job. Finnley heads The Elite, a very high-end escort service and he wants to sell Jennifer’s innocence to the highest bidder. The only problem: He wants her for himself. He tries to deny his feelings, his attraction to her, but how long can he continue to push her away? How long can he fight especially after he’s already sold her virginity? Can he give up what he consider is his?

Love and lust flowed through my veins, and I felt completely powerless as he touched me. We lost ourselves in the moment, in the nibbles and kisses, in the powerful exchange of pent-up emotions 

This story drove me up the fucking wall. I admired the heroine for never giving up the fight, but there came a time in the story where I just wanted her to say fuck Finn and his crazy ass mind games. It’s not like she didn’t have other options. As for Finn, well, he drove me completely NUTS. He was one stubborn ass Hero. He’s sexy as sin and the scenes between him and Jennifer were hot. Who knew foreplay could be just as sexy as them actually getting it on. Finn was definitely a master at manipulation and mind games. Sorry to be the barer of bad news, but this story is just beginning.
