Review ~ Resist by Missy Johnson

eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: April 12th 2016

Publisher: Loveswept

Recent college grad Charlotte Lucas thinks she has found her breakout story. It all begins when she answers a provocative want ad posted by a secretive mogul who happens to be a prime suspect in his girlfriend’s disappearance. Young and inexperienced, Char has never been pushed to the limit—until their games take her to the very edge. Char has gone in looking for the truth, but now she’s in way too deep with a master who plays her body like it belongs to him.

Jaxon Murphy knows a lot more about Char than he lets on. Although the media has made him out to be a monster, he’s not about to come clean about his tormented past—at least not before he turns this good girl bad and sends her out to do his dirty work. After all, Jax didn’t make it to the top without breaking some rules. But as their play grows passionate and achingly real, Jax can’t resist taking a shot at something that’s bigger and more powerful than revenge: love.

My Opinion

I'm struggling to find the words to review this book. It's one of those reads I can't decide whether I disliked or enjoyed and the reasons for both categories are pretty similar.

Resist wasn't what I was expecting, which why I think I'm struggling. I expected more of an office, falling-for-your-boss romance. What I got was slightly different and I can't figure out if I liked Jaxon for the way he employed women.

Saying that, the start intrigued me. With Charlotte looking for a story and trying to play Jaxon. I was also intrigued by Jaxon's past. Wanting to know what happened to his family was what kept me reading. It's also what's led me to my confusion. I'm just not sure I bought into everything. There didn't seem to be enough detail and it was all a little too easy. I won't go into any depth because I don't want to spoil the book for anyone, but it played out a little quick for me.

Overall, I still have no idea what to make of this read. It was interesting to watch unfold, but the final resolve wasn't satisfying enough for me. It may be for you though.
