ForePlay by Shelly Alexander is my first book by this author and it won't be my last, I was grabbed by the story line of three guys overlooked in high school for being on the chess team. They are also intelligent enough to start their own multi-million dollar corporation, Leo Foxx studied women so that he could give men like himself a chance with women giving them a second look. Business is great until a feminist group starts bashing them on websites and in front of their businesses.
Leo Foxx is the youngest CEO and mastermind behind Checkmate Inc. He is feeling all the worries of his company failing and is more than willing to listen to anyone who could help with the PR side of his business especially if the advice comes from someone in a tight fitted skirt and the reddest lips possible. Will this PR representative be a distraction for Leo and make him lose sight of his busness partners, sister and his company?
Chloe, is Leo's sisters best friend and a PR representative, it seems she has much to prove and getting the contract for Checkmate Inc. would look good to her bosses. Chloe does not have a lot of time to write up proposals since the Checkmate seems to keep getting lots of negative publicity hits online. With the temptation that is Leo and the badger that is coming from one of her bosses, this proposal has her emotions all over the place.
The chemistry that is Leo and Chloe is sexually driven at first but becomes more than that, it could also lead them to lose it all if they are not careful. ForePlay is a story of love, sex, lies and betrayal, it is also a story of believing and trusting those around you. Characters are memorable and I loved everything about this story and....I CAN"T WAIT FOR THE SECOND BOOK!!! 4.5 Stars
