Review: Pawn: Volume 2 by Maya St James
Publication Date: February 17, 2015
Series: Book 2
Rating: 5 Stars
“My motivation is simple. Greed. I want to possess you, want to fuck you speechless, want everything about you. I’m not broken. I’m nothing you’re trying to make me out to be, so unless the next words out of your mouth are ‘Fuck me, Graham,’ we’re done here. Your move, Ms. Courtney.”
That’s what the stranger I’ve agreed to crawl into bed with told me when I confronted him for betraying me. Five months. I’ve given Senator Graham Delaney permission to possess my body for five months, and I know nothing about him except that he’s manipulated me and that his dirty mouth and demanding hands set my skin on fire, leaving me writhing for more. My wickedly handsome lover is all lies and desire and secrets—all bundled up in a well-fitted suit and a grin that won over millions—and I’m determined to figure him out.
To possess him.
After all, I have four and a half months left. And I’m already getting under his skin.
My move indeed, Senator Delaney.
Volume 2 of a 3 part serial. WARNING: The pages of this novella contain filthy words and naughty situations. Reader discretion advised.
Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better with Graham and Elle. I was completely blown away with this book. I literally read it in one sitting because I could not put it down. This book deserves all 5 Stars!!!
When Volume 1 ended I couldn’t wait until Volume 2 was out. Maya left me with such a cliff hanger I wanted to throw my kindle. Elle finds out Graham lied to her and made her lose her job. But if you only knew how much he is really playing her. Have you ever loved and hated a character at the same time?? Well this is exactly how I feel about Senator Sexy-Ass aka Graham. There are sometimes I really want to slap him but other times I can see his sensitive side coming out.
I love how the overall story also plays into Graham and Elle’s relationship. There is tons of history with Graham’s past and Elle has no idea she is actually his pawn is this game. I am actually rooting for her dad to get what is coming to him because I do not like him at all. I don’t like spoilers so let me just say this book is hot and the batter between Graham and Elle is very funny. I love how Graham keeps denying Elle but yet he is only torturing himself in the long run.
This book also left me completely hanging and I wanted to scream NO!! I can only hope that Graham turns out to be a better man. I kind of love to hate him. How can you not love his dirty mouth? I can’t wait to see how the story plays out with Graham and Elle. I am crossing my fingers for a HEA. Be warned while reading Graham has a way of melting the pages right off your kindle.
