Lexie Bellamy can handle a boardroom. Relationships, however, are a minefield that always blow up. When a business trip takes her to Spain, Lexie knows she'll have no problem closing the deal. But spending uninterrupted one-on-one time with her crazy-hot coworker might be more than she can take.
At the office, Lexie gets to call the shots. But this trip is the perfect opportunity for Dane Huntley to show his gorgeous boss how good it can feel when someone else takes charge...
Miles away from home, giving in to Dane's naughty commands feels so easy. But when the trip is over, Lexie's determined to go back to their professional relationship. Dane, though, has other ideas. He'll have to prove that what they've found together is real... and he has no intention of letting go.
He hadn't exactly stayed glued to her side all night, but he'd never been far away. Still, this was the closest he'd stood since they'd first arrived. All her reasons for keeping him at a distance had seemed so important at the beginning of the night, but with every hour that passed, it became less and less of a concern.
She'd already let loose more than she usually did. How much worse would it really be to lean into him a little? Tip her head until it rested against the broad strength of his chest or bury her nose against his throat and drink the woodsy maleness of his scent?
A lot. It would be a lot worse.
Fighting the temptation, she plunked her elbows on the table and dropped her head into her hands.
Dane's warm chuckle brushed the back of her neck like a caress. "You holding up all right, Ms. Bellamy?"
"Lexie," she insisted, the word muffled by her hands. Slurred. "And I'm fine." Flexing her feet, she shifted her head, twisting her neck to the side so she could slot open her eyes and look at him. "If I'd known we'd be walking between bars, I'd have changed out of these heels, though."
"Well, that would be a pity."
His gaze flashed dark, and for half a second, she was back on the plane, stripped down to her bra and panties, Dane standing over her and growling at her not to take off her shoes.
She gave a full-body shudder. "Sadist."
I found Lexie and Dane to be amazing characters and I loved their sexy and forbidden attraction. Their story delved into the world of BDSM but it was all done in a very tasteful manner so I think for people who don’t like this genre too much it will still be a good book. Dane may have been under Lexie in their professional job but when it came to their personal lives she was the one submitting to him, which made for some great scenes. I loved that about the book and found it unique for that reason since it’s usually the Hero that’s the big bad Dom in every aspect of his life. Instead, we got to see their roles switch in and out of the bedroom and it made their story really interesting.
This wasn’t just a big book of smut though, there was a lot of relationship involved also and we got to see Lexie working her way towards trusting Dane. I really liked that we got to see these two building their relationship slowly before going all it and it one of the reasons I was so involved in the story. Bottom line, this is a definite recommend from me and I hope a lot of people will give it a try. I haven’t read the first two books in this series and I wasn’t lost at all so it’s not necessary to read this series in order.
