The Pleasure of Panic by J.A. Huss ~ Review & Swoon Thursday (@jahuss)

Although I still need to read the first book in this series, I had to jump into this one, and what a thrilling ride it was! There were plenty of hot and steamy moments, but the suspense... argh! Loved it!

A new day. A new game. A new girl to (try and) please.
Issy Grey is a control freak. There’s no problem she can’t solve. Issy’s also a successful self-help author, presenter, and life coach. She has every answer, every time you ask for it.
That is… until her BFF butts into her life and signs her up for a sexual fantasy fulfillment game she never asked to play!
Now she can’t turn it off! She can’t quit, because Jordan Wells refuses to admit she’s even a player!
And she can’t get rid of the man assigned to pleasure her with panic, because he’s her new bodyguard!
Just… WTF?

Every time I pick up a read by J.A. Huss, I know it is going to be one hell of a mind trip, and The Pleasure of Panic was just that and more! It was a whirl wind romance, that developed with danger building all around them. Issy and Finn both had demons in their past, that seemed to resurface after they met, which they both needed to face, together. It certainly was a fast paced read that kept me on the edge of my seat!

After Issy's meeting with Jordan, I was left dumb struck... He basically brushed her off, but why? Was Issy in this game or not? However, as things began to happen, I kept asking that question as Issy's well constructed world was tumbling down around her. As for Finn and his chaotic past, it looked as though it had caught up to him as well, and as their world's collided they had to work together and learn to trust a stranger, just to make it out alive.

I loved how strong and determined Issy was and she sure showed Finn that she could handle herself! I was seriously in stitches as she showed Finn exactly how ruthless she could be! I loved seeing Issy and Finn together as they Finn had great chemistry. Although they both had different reasons, they were more than happy to explore that growing connection between them, and boy was it hot!

After reading The Pleasure of Panic, I know I need to go back and read the first book, Total Exposure (which I now have). I'm wondering if these are a lot of little games, or whether they are all part of one grand master plan! Jordan is still a bit of a mystery to ma and I'm keen to see more of him, and to find out where Huss is going with this mind bending series!

Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

A steamy kiss ... and a sweet moment. Considering how hot and heavy these two get, these are pretty tame!

He simply bows his head and… there he is. His mouth finds mine, his full lips covering me, then he nips my lip, making me gasp in surprise. I open my eyes to look up at him. Normally I keep my eyes closed for kissing, but the unexpected pain associated with the pleasure of the kiss knocks me off my game.
Did I enjoy that?
He doesn’t give me time to decide because he takes my face in both his hands and knocks me sideways as he crushes me with his lips.
My legs almost buckle for a moment. My heart either speeds up or stops altogether, I’m not sure. My mind spins—maybe from the wine at dinner, but maybe not.
I think I… swoon.

“Tomorrow,” she says, the word thick with sleep. “You’ll still be here, right?”
I can’t stop the smile. Even if I wanted to, I wouldn’t be able to. “I’m not going anywhere, babe. At least not without you.”
I don’t see it, but I feel it. Her lips curving upward against my chest.
