Power Play – The Juniper Court Series
by Lainie Suzanne
If Fifty is the new Thirty, then Nina Sullivan is today’s pin-up girl. Blessed with good genes, she’s keeping the crow’s feet and laugh lines at bay, maximizing her youthful appearance. But, factor in her lackluster sex life and she’s pushing a hundred.
In the early years of their marriage, Nina and Sully consumed each other with raw, carnal passion. And then one by one, year by year, their children snuffed out the burning flames.
Now that the kids have flown the nest, Nina is ready to douse the simmering embers of her marriage with her naughty fantasies and a little kink.

I step in front of the full-length mirror to get a passing glance before heading out the door. Though my outfit is very appropriate for the office, it’s boring. I could blend in with the walls. I don’t want to blend in. I want to stand out. Turn heads. Particularly, Sully’s. I want to look like a sexy siren. I want to tempt him into bending me over his desk for hard pounding.
People always ask what it’s like to work with your husband every day. The truth is, we rarely see each other during the day. Sully’s out on job sites most days. But today, he will be coming to the office to turn in payroll hours and expense reports. I still haven’t convinced him to do this digitally, which aggravates me to no end. But today, I will use his antiquated procedures to my advantage.
Rifling back through my closet, I select my black pencil skirt. I pair it with a white oxford shirt, unbuttoned down the front until the red lace of my bra peeks out from the sides. Sliding into my red, fuck me heels, I barely recognize the woman in the mirror staring back at me. She looks like a sex kitten.
Time to make my kitty purr.
Tanya Rae’s rating: 5 of 5 stars
Let me explain a little about the Juniper Court Series. This is a series of books, written by indie authors who write in different sub-genres along the romance spectrum. These include Romance, Ménage, Romantic Comedy, Gay Romance and BDSM. The series of books take place on one street, with each house having its own unique story. The occupants of the houses would interact, giving readers a glimpse into the neighbors’ lives, but each book would offer up its own standalone romance as well. Thanks Lainie for the description for Juniper Court Series.
Power Play is part of the Juniper Court Series and as far as I am concerned it is a MUST read! Power Play is Sully and Nina Sullivan’s story by Lainie Suzanne.
I love how Nina and Sully met in High School 33 years ago. They have been married for 29 years and things have gotten stale. Nina introduces Sully to the world of BDSM through her romance books. I love how it opens up their marriage to new things. And, OMG the cinnamon oil scene was LOL funny. Of course, I am sure it wasn’t to them.
Lainie Suzanne writes about realistic people. Her characters are in their early 50’s. Their bodies aren’t perfect. They have flaws and, they are easily relatable characters.
Just so you know that this is a short book to read. Goodreads says 111 pages.

Power Play: 39 Juniper Court (The Juniper Court Series) by Lainie Suzanne is a grown folks tale of a couple who has lost their sexual magic. This a relatable story that many couples experience. Once real life takes hold of most marriages after having kids, both people working and general life issues; that sex life they use to experience has been long gone. Many women no longer pay attention to their personal appearance and they seem to be in a rut . It isn’t intentional. It’s just life. Nina and Sully is that couple. Nina is still a good looking woman but she knows she has let herself go as far as her clothing and her and her husband’s sex life is close to non existent. She is determined to bring that spice back . She knows the love is still there between her and Sully. This is their story. What Nina does to bring sexy back was something else. I loved it. This story at times was very informational but was funny as hell. I could really relate to this story. I even picked up a few pointer. I look forward to what else will be happening at Juniper Court. I give this book 4 stars.
I’m Lainie Suzanne and I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. I currently live in North Carolina with my husband, my best friend, the love of my life.
I love reading Erotic Romance, but often found myself unable to relate to the characters. I wanted to read about a heroine I could relate to and thought other women would too. The heroine in Nexus, Katherine, is in her mid-forties, divorced, curvaceous, insecure, sassy, and feels self-conscious about her body. Things many women can relate to. I like to say I write Realistic Erotic Romance.
I’ve always had a love affair with vampires, so I decided to merge eroticism and vampirism and my novella, Blood Moon was born.
I never thought of myself as a writer, and honestly, I still don’t. I have stories and characters in my head that I want to know more about and see what kind of wicked kinkery they can get into along the way. My characters mean a lot to me; they’re part of me.
