Blurb:
Cash Turner could never resist a woman in need. It's what shapes his desires--and sealed his fate. Recently released from prison after serving time for a murder he didn't commit, Cash has to keep his head down and stay out of trouble. That means avoiding the curvy, delicious temptation of Dreama Agosto . . . a woman who holds his future in her hands.

Dreama knew returning to work wouldn't be easy, but she wasn't prepared for Cash Turner. He's tall, commanding, the first man to spark her interest in a year . . . and her newest parolee. It doesn't take long for Dreama to realize that there's more to him--and his case--than meets the eye. As the two of them investigate the murder that led to his incarceration, they explore the growing desire between them, risking more than her career. Because now that the real killer has set his sights on Dreama, she's also risking her life.
 

The Review: 3 Stars

The book stars off with a bang. An act of violence that leaves you a little confused as to where the story is going but also very curious about it.

Cash is a little broken, he wasn't held an easy card in life. He is a good man and a rather likable character. 
Dreama was the true star of the book. Her confidence, determination and courage while at the same time still fragile and suffering some ptsd made her relatable and very likable. 

The negatives for me would be one, the intimate scenes- I really really didn't care for them and the "I want you to hurt me" comment at the end was very off putting. And two, although I enjoyed the suspense aspect of it some parts were so far fetched they were eye rolling. 

All in all For His Pleasure had a good story, it just wasn't one that will stay with me for long. It was rather generic in many ways.
