Publisher's Summary

In the aftermath of a major health scare, Pepper Holts makes the relief-inspired decision to seize the day. Unfortunately, most of her "seizing" involves a bit of merlot and her best friend's pants! After a shared night of passion, she realizes that her feelings for Jax are a lot more complicated than she ever thought.

Jax has finally realized that his allergy to marriage has nothing to do with the institution itself, and everything to do with the women in his bed-or more specifically, the one woman not in his bed. Her reaction to their one night together has him scrambling to regroup. So he does what he knows best - he disappears, and he thinks. The plan is to convince Pepper to stay with him at a secluded cabin for one week. One week of pretending to be a happily married couple to show her how great they could be together.

Friends to marriage

I choose this rating because it was such a good storyline and the narration was explicitly performed. Jackson and Pepper had been in love with each other 10!years before acting upon it and they both thought the the other didn't love them in that way. I loved the way that Jackson knew Pepper so well that he had Plan A and B outlined. But he hadn't planned on Pepper giving him a sucker punch when she arrived. Some parts were hilarious!

This book is definitely for adults 18 and older.

not what I was expecting

I skipped past most of it because it was so predictable. The woman saying I won't to but I can't through most of the book. it was like the author was trying to keep the book going long enough to be a book and not just a paragraph. For me the story was over by the first chapter. It was a waste of my money.

persuasion skills

I just wish it was a lot longer. Other than that it was really good. Very well written.

Cute

If you could sum up Persuasion Skills in three words, what would they be?

Sexy, tropish and entertaining.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Maybe longer? Or a more confident heroine(and confident with male validation type confidence).

Which scene was your favorite?

The flashbacks of them having sex for the first time ;p

Funny yet Short

This was a very funny and sexy best friend to lovers story. While Jax is very analytical, Pepper is a firecracker. They have great chemistry together. I think this had great potential. However It ended too abruptly. I also wish their was more of a backstory. We only saw how they got to Colorado as opposed to building up to it. Overall, this was a quick and fun read. It was low angst, very sexy and full of laughs.

Rebecca Wolfe captured the wittiness of the story. I think she was a solid choice for the narrator.

It was my cup of tea

I enjoyed the narrator. The male character little kinkiness, I like it, and how they finally get together. They finally get together for knowing each other for many years.
