The Refusal

The Refusal by Eve M. Riley is the first book of The Techboys series and follows the story of tech billionaire Janus Phillips who has a glamorous life that only one can only dream of. Jo Williams, a young entrepreneur operating her own security firm, has a run-in with Janus and is offered a ton of cash to help him save his company. Unfortunately, Janus has a reputation as a “playboy,” so Jo is determined to keep things professional between them.

Author Eve Riley has added tech and romance into one steamy novel making this one book that you cannot put down. As the tension between both characters builds, so does your curiosity. Riley does a fantastic job of capturing and keeping the reader’s attention.

Both characters are likable and are not at all what you expect. On the outside, Janus looks like a playboy with a fast life, but that is not the case. He is sensitive and caring and is the perfect example of why you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Jo is one of my favorite characters as she is strong, intelligent, and breaks the stereotype by working in the tech world. She can be seen as an inspiration to young girls that they can fit into that world.

The thrill of the chase was intoxicating, and I didn’t want it to end. The intimate scenes are portrayed tastefully, and I was able to sense their passion for one another. Getting to see the perspective of both characters was the cherry on top, as it provided a sense of satisfaction knowing what both characters were thinking and feeling about one another. Several interesting side characters are also introduced throughout the book, and they had me laughing hard.

The Refusal by Eve Riley is an exhilarating read, and I recommend it to those who love a good steamy romance.
