REVIEW : Persuading Him (The Heiress, Book 1) by Michelle Dare

RELEASE DATE : March 14, 2015
Kasi Markson has been in the public eye since she was a small child. Her father is the founder of Markson Aviation, a top name in the private jet industry. When her parents go through a public divorce battle, she is shoved into the spotlight. Now in her late twenties, she lives a comfortable life, but likes to keep the media at a distance.
Radek Cole is a retired Air Force officer who agrees to a last minute job. He flies the rich and famous around the country in their private aircraft. Kasi needs a pilot for her upcoming trip and Mr. Cole comes highly recommended. Little does she know that one encounter would change everything.

Kasi has an immediate and intense attraction to her new pilot and is used to getting what she wants. Initially, he turns down her advances, but her skills of persuasion are no match for him. Unfortunately, the media won’t leave them alone. What Kasi doesn’t know is that she isn’t the only one who has a public past.

Find out what happens when the heiress meets the pilot.

Thanks to NetGalley and The Hype PR for the ARC.

Going to be real honest here, I could not get into this book at all. Everything just felt so rushed, and the sex, while dirty and frequent, read so much like bad porn dialogue. 

When I read the synopsis, I thought this was something that would be interesting but it just fell so flat. It was missing the drama or angst that could have made it more readable and there was no UST between Radek and Kasi at all. As a matter of fact, I didn’t even like them either. Kasi is just so careless and floaty and Radek just came across as a massive tool.

Any chance to make this story more than just a smutfest, was left out. 

Persuading Him ends on a cliffie but I think I get off here (no pun intended), on the Kasi and Radek train.
