    entails tongue lashing, humor, and steamy sex scenes...

    Let me start by saying, WELL DONE! Persuasion Skills is a page-turner from start to finish. It entails tongue lashing, humor, and steamy sex scenes.

    Jaxon and Pepper are best friends and business partners who have shared a welcoming peck on the cheek and hug. But an evening of celebrating quickly turns into a blissful night of passion. Holding back on their feelings adds tension to their friendship and business. To make matters worse, Pepper found herself “playing Indiana Jones” when Jaxon became MIA. Fearful their friendship was headed for the worst, Pepper continued to berate herself for indulging in “that last glass of wine”. This does not stop her from uttering a slew of cusswords and bodily harm.

    You will witness on more than one occasion how fierce Pepper can be. The first incident took place when she was a senior in college. When Jaxon walked into his dorm room, he laid eyes on skin tone the color of milk chocolate in a compromising situation with his roommate. Puzzled, he demanded answers from her since his roommate was gagged and hog-tied. After a few more blows to the roommate, Pepper calms down long enough to laugh at herself and her new protector, her “He-Man”. Believe me when I say, the nickname “He-Man” is dead-on with the scene and Jaxon’s character. Even then for the first time seeing her, Jaxon thought she was a stunning sight with a flared temper.

    When Jaxon scrutinized and devised a plan to win Pepper over, he thought of everything and I do mean everything. Will it work? Or will he admit there’s no blueprint when it comes to love? Accepting his fate and any right hooks that may come along, he is more than ready to test his skills against the feisty beauty.

    And the sex scenes… They are HOT!! Jaxon is in tune with Pepper’s body; one touch and she’s humming.

    I absolutely loved this novel. The story line and characters were captivating and well written; I had to read it twice. I’m hooked and Ms. Cremant is now on my radar for new releases, but in the meantime I will enjoy her debut novel Negotiating Skills.

    “The phrase dead or alive flashed through her mind after she hit a particularly deep pot hole”

    “He winced at a few of her more graphic and violent depictions of revenge to come. She always did have a somewhat sadistic streak.”

    “You know that you’re officially only one step away from re-enacting Misery, don’t you?” She flicked the question out at him”

    “That touching you always makes me feel like I’m drowning and all I want to breathe in is you”?

    Jaxon and Pepper have been friends since there chance meeting in college.  She was a 20 year old wanting to lose her virginity. She just happen to chose jaxon's roommate. 

    On that fateful night jaxon walked into his place he shared and found a women(Pepper) in only her panties and high heels kicking his roommate who just happened to be tied up in his jewels and also with a box of condoms in his mouth .  Way to go Pepper!!! She didn't mind having sex but being tied up without her permission was a no no.  From that day forward they became close friends.  They built a business together but what Jaxon didn't realize was that Pepper fell in love with him from day one.  As always with men it too longer the mango realize he loved her also. Hiding her feelings were getting harder and harder. 

    Afternoon a night of passion Pepper through Jaxon out not wanting to destroy the friendship they had and to keep him from knowing how she truly felt.  Jaxon realize that he loved Pepper and would do anything in his powers to get her to love him back and marry him.  So he concocted a plan to get her away from Miami and alone with him in the mountains.  To do this he disappeared from work, cancelled meeting and hid in the mountains which cause her to do something she never thought she do follow him.  She drove up the mountains on potholed roads cussing Jaxon all the way. What she didn't know was Jaxon knew she would come. He had a plan, when she arrived he disabled her car so she couldn't leave.  She Greed to spend one week with Jaxon so he could show her how go they were together. Her problem was she didn't think he would ever lover her so she fought her feelings and Jaxon. Will she give him a chance? Will his persuasion skills win her over? Or is Jaxon going to fail?   

    This is a faced paced, full of laughter, and hot sex.  If you are not into a dominant male the this is not the story for you.  There is some bondage and spankings in this story.
