REVIEW: Private Parts by Tori CarringtonSunday, January 30, 2011 1:00
The third time or fourth in this case is not always the charm. I for one am glad this is the end to the Private Scandals Series.
Tori Carrington continues the tale of the Metaxas family and the collapsing town of Earnest Washington with the older brother Troy Metaxes who has overcome a lot with his whole family thwarting their sworn enemy, Manolis Philippidis .
Troy Metaxes is a steadfast trust worthy businessman who has too much faith in his fellow enemy. He is valiantly trying to save his home town since the family business had gone under and half the town lost their jobs. Since his brother and cousin feel in love with the right arms of his enemy, he has one last shot at getting Manolis Philippidis to close a viable deal to get the town back on its feet.
Manolis Philippidis has one last weapon to spring upon the Metaxes family… Kendall Banks. The sultry hot attorney who will do anything to save her family. She would just love to mix business with pleasure as long as it came in the form of Troy Metaxes. From the cooperate boardroom to the town’s only B & B there is no level where they don’t hit it off.
If you have read Private session and Private Affairs, Private Parts is just more of the same with a weak ending. As usually the characters are strong but Tori Carrington has repeated the same places and scenes, i.e. the make out cove, different couple same sheriff catching them. That got a little old. I expect more from this dynamic writing duo. I also did not care much for the story line. I don’t expect my heroines and hero’s to be perfect but what Kendall did was unethical and I feel some consequence should have happened to her for her actions even if she was trying to save her father by doing a bad thing for a good reason. I also found it redundant that a world renowned Greek tycoon cannot conduct business without blackmailing someone.
I will continue reading Tori Carrington. This is first review that didn’t get an A from me.
Subject: Troy Metaxas. Intense—and intensely sexy—businessman. He never mixes business and pleasure… until he meets his sirenlike new lawyer!Object: Kendall Banks. Hotshot attorney. Willing to do anything to save her family from ruin…no matter how devastating the cost!
Situation: They’re fighting to rescue an economically beleaguered town…right before Christmas. They’re also having mind-blowing sex that’s so steamy they can hardly be in the same room without ripping off each other’s clothes!
Unexpected maneuver: Troy discovers Kendall betrayed him…in business and in pleasure. Only one victor will emerge in this new personal battle…unless the spirit of the holidays inspires them to find a way they can both win—over and over again….
