    1. I picked this one up immediately after finishing the companion book, The Most Coveted Prize, because I was very intrigued with Alena's older brother, Vasilii. My instincts about him were correct. He initially comes off as a cold, forbidding, all business type hero. But underneath there is a lot of untapped passions. Laura is the woman to open that door to the intense man that Vasilli keeps tightly leashed.Sometimes I feel that romance novels just aren't romantic anymore. A sad realization for a [...]


    2. A dull, pointless story. With all that Penny Jordan wrote, I guess it's inevitable she'd run out of strong plot ideas, especially considering this is Harlequin formulaic territory where the branch of the playing field can't be stretched out far. It holds some potential, but not much, and this isn't helped since the characters seem to be driven by lust rather than love. Why on earth would it be convincing that the two could actually have fallen in love with each other with so little interaction, [...]


    3. This restored some of my faith in Ms. Jordan after the debacle that was The Most Coveted Prize. Vasilii was kind of a nice guy; he just needed to set some of his priorities straight. I thought the bit about the earring was too sweet for words.


    4. "The power of Vasili" is the story of Vasili and Laura- and a intriguing tale of a closed off cynical man, and a woman who has loved him from afar.Vasili hires Laura as his PA, even though she has a "bad" past with her previous job. Laura on the other hand, has worshipped the ground Vasili walks on since she fell for him as a teen, but the reality is much, much different.I liked the back and forth between the leads. Vasili was quite the hard and judgemental hero, whereas Laura was no doormat her [...]


    5. Like usually I hold a different opinion than most readers. I liked the first book "The Most Coveted Prize" much better than this one. This one was just ok. I had to skip many pages because of all the business related conversations and so I couldn't get into the story.



    6. This was my second Harlequin Presents ever. I generally liked the premise, the characters' backstory, and what puts them together. For the first 2/3 of the book, I was mostly onboard, enjoying it and engaged. However, the book started to break down for me at the first sex scene. There was good sexual tension leading into the scene, but the hero's behavior went from arrogant and infuriating to offensive and cruel. There was just nothing sexy or romantic about it. First, he refuses to listen to he [...]


    7. Penny'ciğimin son dönem yeni bdlerinden biriydi ben eskileri daha çok seviyorum ama bu da güzeldi 3,5 dan 4 verdim gitti:) Hem erkek hem kadın düşüncelerine aynı oranda yer vermesi benim çok hoşuma gidiyor burdada böyleydiKızımız oğlumuzun kız kardeşiyle aynı okulda okumuş 14 yaşında tutulmuş oğlumuza uzaktan. Yıllar sonra oğlumuzun çince ve rusca bilen bir yardımcıya ihtiyacı oluyor kızımıda başvuruyor ve kabul ediliyor tabii oğlumuz kız hakkında pek iyi dü [...]


    8. Jika seorang wanita sudah mencintai seorang pria sejak masih dini, hingga dibutakan perasaannya, membiarkan dirinya direndahkan, saya tdk bisa bilang wanita ini kuat. Ini adalah wanita bodoh bernama Laura yg sudi difitnah, dilecehkan, diabaikan tetapi masih saja berkorban utk menunggu cinta dari Vasilii.Vasilii yg terkena Oedipus complex syndrome, tidak bisa melepaskan bayangan ibunya. Saya bingung korelasi ini dgn chemistry mereka, yg saya yakin gak nyambung banget, tapi sangat dipaksakan oleh [...]


    9. Theme: Russian Hero, boss Hero - PA heroine, heroine wrongly accused by (everybody? lels)Reading this is like watching or sometimes thisbut i liked it hahaha, there's something wrong with me. lels.


    10. i was loving the book until rhe Hero acts like a unforgivable jerk, During the most intimate and memorable moment, it made me dislike the rest of the book, and really dislike the Heroine for being such a consistent doormat


    11. I love Penny Jordan books - she is my all time fave Mills and Boon author - but after 185 novels to her name, even I'll admit that some of them aren't that good. This one, however IS a good one, in my opinion.As plot goes, it's pretty standard Jordan fare. Laura (our heroine) needs a job after being encouraged to leave her old one if she went quietly. Her unscrupulous boss has told her that he'll keep the fact that she's been effectively sacked quiet if she goes without a fight, but - it turns o [...]


    12. I like this book more than its predecessor. What I liked:-Compared to the first book in this duology, I found the characters more likeable and the plot more entertaining.-The inclusion of Asian businessmen (Chinese businessmen to be specific) and Asia (China, haha) in the story is a breath of fresh air. In all the Harlequin novels I've read in the past, I think this is the first time I encountered a tycoon dealing with Asians in business and an author making this business dealing one of the high [...]


    13. Vasilii, taipan muda keturunan Russia-Arab, sedang mencari asisten pribadi ditengah padatnya jadwal negosiasi antara dirinya dg pengusaha berasal dari China. Prioritasnya ditengah waktu yg begitu sedikit adl asisten yg fasih berbahasa rusia dan mandarin serta tahu seluk-beluk budaya china. Krn begitu penting negosiasi ini maka sang hero mengesampingkan bahwa kandidat yg plg potensial ini adl wanita. Selama ini dirinya lbh memilih asisten pria utk menghindari adanya ketertarikan antara si wanita [...]


    14. I liked this slightly more than its predecessor, The Most Coveted Prize, which I gave 3.5 stars to, mostly because Vasili appealed to me greatly and the boss/employee dynamic is a favorite trope of mine.Despite Vasili's distrust and misunderstanding of Laura, I still liked him. Underneath Vasili's cool exterior lies the heart of a passionate man willing and able to protect those he loves. Vasili starts the story distrusting Laura. However, as he gets to know her on the job, Vasili sees what the [...]


    15. Started off pretty bad - Jordan's writing style is repetitive, and at times, really simplistic when it comes to telling the story, which being about a girl who takes on a job as a Russian's PR to undertake some sensitive Chinese negotiations, obviously had me being super-critical. That being said, when she gets to the gold of what people reading the book want, her writing is powerful and emotive, and it's impossible not to fall in love with the heartthrob of the story Vasilii and want to be in t [...]


    16. I have to say even though this book goes along in the style of the average Mills and Boon novel, for some reason this one really irritated me. I was not swept away by the hero's story of a tough life and his subsequent distrusting attitude, instead I just wanted to scream at his arrogance and refusal to treat the heroine as a decent human being. And it's both ridiculous and disappointing to see that Penny Jordan doesn't let little things like employment and discrimination laws get in the way of [...]


    17. With The Power Of Vasilii I couldn't suspend disbelief that a businessman or woman would hire someone as an employee inspite of (or is it despite?) the fact they perceived the potential new hire to be guilty of gross misconduct in their personal life and couldn't hide the personal contempt for their lack of morals. Of course, since this is a harlequin romance - the employee in question is innocent of the sexual misconduct charges laid against her - and the hero and heroine find their HEA; but I [...]


    18. A good book with good characters. There were definitely some tense moments, plenty of emotions, some angst, a little steaminess, good mix of cultures (although it was brief and a small part of the story), and a good HEA. I liked reading this, however, it didn't pull me in. This was a book that I enjoyed reading but I don't think it would be something I would search out. I liked the characters, although I did want to knock heads a few times. Kept me interested but it wasn't a page-turner kinda re [...]


    19. Laura desperately needs the PA job working for Vasilii. She knows she has to impress him but since he's taken an instant dislike to her getting the job seams highly unlikely.Vasilii would rather not hire Laura due to her dubious reputation but since she's the only qualified person for the job he has no choice but to hire her. Working together goes easier than expected until Laura is in danger and Vasilii is the only one who can protect her igniting their unwanted attraction for each other.A fabu [...]


    20. *2,5Vasilii, pria arogan kaya, angkuh, kebal terhadap godaan wanita dan Laura krn suatu keadaan membuatnya tak punya pilihan selain melamar kerja kpd Vasilii (pria yg dipujanya sejak remaja). Latar belakang keduanya, menjadikan mereka dekat walau tetap saja tak menggoyahkan cara pandang Vasilii yg 'merendahkan Laura. Sayangnya, membaca novel ini terasa agak melelahkan, karena lebih banyak narasi, para tokoh lebih banyak berdialog sendiri .


    21. 3.5 of 5awal cerita yang agak membosankan, terlalu banyak bercerita tentang masa lalu yang sering diulang-ulang, tapi makin lama ceritanya makin buat penasaran.heronya yang terlalu keras kepala dan dingin, dengan heroine nya yang terjerat cinta lama dengan si hero. heronya agak sedikit jahat awalnya, cuma makin lama makin so sweeeeeet.


    22. Okay, here's the conclusion :1. Too short2. Too slow3. Too much bitterness But the writing style of penny Jordan still made me flutter




    23. Al empezar a leer un libro de Penny Jordan provoca siempre en mí, que odie de antemano al protagonista masculino, porque se que a comportarse como un auténtico canalla, y pues nunca me fallá :D
