Product Description

Product Description

“I want to spend your last semester getting you out of those pearls and on all fours.”

That’s what he said to me when he found out that with one semester of college left, my father—his colleague—had cut me off. Young, wickedly handsome, and deliciously moody, Senator Graham Delaney’s filthy proposition to cover tuition in exchange for one semester of kink was terrifying and thrilling and offensive.

If you’re wondering if I told him to go screw himself after he gave me his ultimatum—if the night ended with me slapping that smirk off his face—that didn’t happen.

Instead, I did what I needed to do.

I just didn’t expect to like it.


*Volume 1 of a sexy new serial. WARNING: The pages of this novella contain filthy words, naughty situations, and is not intended for readers under the age of 18. Reader discretion advised.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed...as this was listed as an Erotica best seller 7 February 2015
By Anonymous Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I immediately one clicked Pawn after reading the blurb and started reading it right away. I was engrossed in the storyline at first.

The sexual tension built and built and built, but then
*******POSSIBLE SPOILER******

There was absolutely NO SEX in the entire book!! One small, very underestimated semi-steamy scene and nothing more. They only kissed ONCE!!!

I realize this is the beginning of a serial, but I don't know if I'm willing to invest anymore time in it, especially at how slow the pacing of the story is. I don't want to have to wait until the last book for a sex scene!

I gave this two stars as the writing was great and the characters were developed well. I just wish this would have been an erotic romance like it was listed. There really wasn't anything "erotic" about it!

4.0 out of 5 stars 4 ½ stars! Pawn, part 1(3). Dirty-talking & calculated politician sets his eye on young student seeking a clandestine affair! 1 February 2015
By Avid Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"It's crude for anyone to talk about p*** y at the dinner table, but I'm a politician, not a priest."

These novellas should be read in order:
Part 1: Pawn Volume I
Part 2: Pawn Volume II
Part 3: Pawn Volume III

In Pawn, part 1 US senator, investor and heir Graham Joshua Delaney spots student, heiress and daughter of a fellow politician, Eleanor Sutton Courtney, Elle applying for a job in a restaurant. His interest is sparked mostly on a sexual level. Upon digging deeper he discovers her college fund has been cut off by her father...

Graham masterminds a plan to get her in his bed and to carry on a clandestine affair. Elle is ill equipped to handle such a relentless, wickedly charming, dirty-talking and oh so suave politician. Graham may well appear horny and depraved, but his motives are murky, possibly hinting to the darker side of politics and sex...

GRAHAM J. DELANEY, Senator Sexy-Ass: 33 years/Heir/$$$$/US senator/Brown hair/Brown eyes/6'2".
Nine words to describe Graham Joshua Delaney: Dirty-talker, suave, cocky, flirty, ruthless, jaded, elusive, blunt and manipulative.
"I normally f*** first, dine later. I usually prefer the dining to be done alone without all the awkward chit-chat."

ELEANOR S. COURTNEY, Elle: 22 years/Journalism student/Heiress/Black hair/Green eyes/5'6".
Eight words to describe Eleanor Sutton Courtney: Smart, loyal, resourceful, reflective, honest, caring, naive and determined.
"Save your can'ts and shouldn'ts for confession, Elle. We already are."

Pawn, part 1, told from dual POVs is driven by Graham's calculated seduction of Elle and it's hard not to get swept off one's feet. Story reads a fast pace, offering the best in sizzling sexual tension and promises of some mind-blowing sex courtesy the wicked Graham. Story ends with a shocker. I will be skipping over to part 2, Pawn Volume II as soon as possible.

Depraved, dirty-talking and possibly devious hero! Interesting plot! Witty dialogue and bantering! Seduction, secrets, suspense and smut!
b>"I want to spend your last semester getting you out of those f*** ing pearls and on all fours. Close your mouth, Elle, because there's one more thing I want."

5.0 out of 5 stars loved it 28 January 2015
By Books and Boys - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Pawn by Maya St. James is volume one of a three part series. Part one has dual POVs, but is mostly told in the female lead's POV. Happily ever after? We'll just have to wait and see.

Senator Graham Delaney is gruff, possessive, straightforward, sinfully hot, and knows exactly what he wants. And he wants Elle to do what he wants with and for his own secret agenda. So he'll do whatever he has to in order to get her. Including a proposition she can't refuse.

Eleanor Courtney is the epitome of a prim and proper politician's daughter, on the outside at least. Until she's cut off by her father for her own personal thoughts and views on life and needs to find the funds to source her schooling. It seems to be perfect timing though, because the filthy mouthed senator Elle runs into decides he needs her and will pay a hefty price to have her. But is everything as it seems?

However, they both didn't expect for feelings to get mixed up in their nontraditional relationship. Graham didn't expect to crave Elle, to want her, despite his initial plans. Despite Elle not being able to fight her body's reaction to Graham, she didn't expect for him to affect her so much. Could feelings be getting in the way? Will Graham's newfound need for Elle change his planned outcome? Can Elle keep her feelings for Graham at bay and not make them personal? What will happen next now that she knows what he did to posses her?

Oh. My. God. Hot! Sinful, steamy, and smoking hot. I need more and I need more now! Graham has a filthy mouth and perverse mind that he's not afraid to share with Elle. Much to her dismay. Although, she's melting just as much as I am while reading it. I couldn't put it down and was wishing I had a full length novel in my hands. I never wanted it to end. I can feel the emotional turmoil getting ready to be unleashed and I just know the series is going to explode with more sinful steam and lust. With the certain hints of what's to come, I'm on the edge of my seat with anticipation.

Maya St. James has a winner on her hands with this one. I can't wait to read more about Elle and Graham, and I can't wait for more books from this author. Maya's writing is a great mix of smoking hot dirty talk and witty humor, with a dash of emotional angst that you know is going to develop through the series. A must read for lovers of dirty talking alphas who know what they want!

Format: Kindle Edition
Eleanor “Elle” Courtney’s father also happens to be in the Senate and he’s just recently cut her off financially. With only one semester of college left, Elle is determined to find a way to pay for school without her family’s help.

Waiting tables might not be an easy job, but Elle is willing to whatever it takes to pay her tuition. But when she’s let go after only a week she’s not left with a lot of options.

Graham Delaney loves sex but not commitment. Working in politics he has to choose very wisely when picking a woman to sleep with to avoid any scandal, and when he meets the beautiful Elle Courtney everything he needs and wants just happens to fall right in his lap.

Graham offers to pay Elle’s tuition in exchange for the semester with him, and only him. While technically she’s getting paid for sex, Elle decides this is an offer she can’t refuse. And really, what’s the worst that can happen? Graham is wickedly sexy and doesn’t want to expose their relationship to the public so the plan sounds perfect. Except what Elle doesn’t know is she’s really a Pawn in a much bigger game that Graham’s told her nothing about.

…she’s my pawn, and my lust for her is nothing but a game.
Wow, this was an awesome novella. Graham’s truly a douchebag but I loved it and I can’t wait to see how this story is going to play out.
