Release Blitz & Review: For the Wiin by Brenna Aubrey

For the Win

Brenna Aubrey 

Releasing: June 16, 2015

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…

Excerpt #1

Jordan glanced around and then looked at me, eyes wide. “What the hell was that about?”
I turned my head away from him, quickly brushing tears away with the back of my hand. “That was about getting the hell away from you. Too bad you can’t take a hint.”
His eyes narrowed as he watched me, then his thumb brushed across my cheek as if to verify what he was seeing. “Are you crying?”
I gave a sniff and jerked my head away. “No. Go away now.”
He ignored me, of course. “What’s going on, Weiss? Did that bartender say something to you? I’ll go fuck him up.”
“No. I’m fine. He was nice. Nicer than any other guy I’ve talked to in months.”
He didn’t say anything in reply, just scowled. If possible, he looked even hotter when he scowled—it was an intense sort of look, with his eyes narrowing like darts that could punch a hole right through me. Then he cleared his throat and looked away. He pulled a bar napkin from his back pocket and handed it to me.
I took it without a word, blotted tears from my cheeks and blew my nose. “How much have you had to drink?” he asked quietly.
“No alcohol. I do stupid shit when I drink.”
He frowned. “So what’s with the crying then?”
I shrugged. “You’re my boss, not my psychotherapist.”
“Are you going home with that bartender?”
“Is that any of your business?”
He moved in close, standing right in front of me, bracing a hand on the wall above my head. My heart hammered in my chest. He ran a finger along the line of my jaw, giving me that intense look again. His Adam’s apple bobbed as he visibly swallowed.
“I’m making it my business.” Then his finger slipped down the column of my throat, over my collarbone and right to the deep cleavage of my neckline. Where his finger traced my skin, his touch burned. I felt it clear down to my bones. My chest squeezed tight. I couldn’t breathe. He pissed me off and turned me on like no other man could. I froze as his head dipped so that his lips were mere millimeters from mine. I could feel his breath on my face. And I didn’t smell alcohol like I’d expected to.
“You’re a good girl, April Weiss. And those are the worst kind.”

My Review: 

For the Win was a great addition to the series.   As with the previous books, this one was full of laughs and hot steamy moments but also brought on a few tears as well.  Jordan and April's story was a beautifully woven blend of real life and romance and bringing it all together.  

What I enjoy about this series is that even though each story has a character focus, it's inclusive of other characters, so you get to know the friends and/or family and it just pulls it all together more.  It was nice to get glimpses of past characters and meet future ones I'd like to know more about.  

April was super smart, and also sassy and hilarious, but she was also a little down on herself.  At the start of the story she's also horrified to find that a sex video of her has been leaked and just at the start of her new job.  

Jordan, who we've seen as a manwhore, in previous books, comes across as a strong guy, but he's got a few sensitive spots.  He definitely seemed changed in his book, and I really liked him more for it, than I had in previous books.

Brenna Aubrey has pulled together a masterfully blended story with For The Win, that shows the relationship between April and Jordan forming and continuing while also bringing us completely into the fold with their surrounding lives.   You really feel sucked in, like you could actually be friends with these people and see them day to day.
