…we're keeping our name but expanding our offerings!
They’re a match made in the dungeon…until their secret gets out.
Bored senseless in a meeting, architectural modeler Jon McNeill amuses himself with a kinky dating app on his phone. Then the app matches him with another user…who’s six feet away. Suddenly Jon finds himself on the same page as someone way above his pay grade: millionaire property developer Rick Pierce. His firm’s biggest—and hottest—client.
The app isn’t kidding either. They’re a perfect match. Jon’s a Dom, Rick’s a sub, and bondage is their thing. Both guys are well into their forties, know their way around the bedroom, and definitely appreciate a good suit. And the best part? They’re a match outside the bedroom too.
But office relationships aren’t easy to keep a secret. When the truth comes out, Jon is certain he’s about to get fired. Instead, his bosses throw him a curve ball—an ultimatum that puts both his job and his relationship in jeopardy.
Warning: Contains literal and figurative sex machines, blindfolds, a sub being punished during a business meeting, enough rope to tangle up a millionaire, and a Golden Girls marathon.
There once was a reader named Sheri.
She liked to read about Tom, Dick and Larry.
Shifters and rock stars made her happy.
Uniforms of any kind tickled her fancy.
She never turned any story away.
Till one day a bondage book left her in dismay.
A break from BDSM might be best.
Then LA delivered a treasure chest.
A master with a key….
That appeared to be written…just for me.
Okay, okay…I’ll stop with the declaration of my love for L.A. because I’ve said it before. Ahhh hell, in case you missed it- I lurve her. If I’m going to read a BDSM book, THIS is exactly the book that I’m searching for. It couldn’t have been timed any better and damn if I needed this book. As I mentioned above the last BDSM book I read knocked me back to the edge of reconsidering any other books with this element. It’s not my comfort zone, but I like to walk the line, push my limits and Dom/Sub stories are a direct tap into my vein of unease. I’ve found I usually come out on top and I’m grateful for the awakening.
This was an ecstatic wake-up call that not all Dom’s are the same.
Jon works for an architectural firm, he’s the guy that builds all the teeny tiny models of potential builds. He’s middle-aged, divorced, and working like a dog to put his three kids through college. And I freakin’ loved him! This is a good thing because it’s strictly his head that we hang out in. Odd as it may seem, his ex-wife is living with him. They split on good terms, co-parent like rockstars and when Karen was in a tough spot, Jon didn’t hesitate to help her.
Jon has always known he’s bi-sexual but he doesn’t freely announce it. Those closest to him (including his kids) know, but he’s not out at work. Not that he’s ashamed at all, but he’s never had a reason (or a man) to bring to office parties. His work partner Teagan and his crew are a total riot. The NSFW zone AT work made me laugh and laugh and laugh some more.
Jon is suffering through yet another torturous meeting with the clients when he risks a peek at his phone. Ohh wait! I failed to mention Jon is kinky. Yep, he’s got all the toys and a fancy dungeon to play in. He’s been on the lookout for a new sub and never in a million years would he have pegged the firms biggest client as that man. Rick Pierce holds his head high and barks orders like a fierce drill sergeant. Though behind closed doors he’s most comfortable on his knees and at his lover’s mercy.
Mid-forties, creaky knees, silver highlights and the maturity to TALK through problems as they arise. Yes, yes, yes! I will admit that I enjoy a good YA or NA but I’ve grown tired of the standard ‘big misunderstanding’. It was soooo refreshing when these guys confronted the issues and worked around or through them. Well, there is this one BIG thing that Jon attempts to hide from Rick, but Rick calls his bullshit.
They are on complete opposite ends of the tax bracket and Rick is an off-limits client at work….but in the dungeon they are a perfect fit. They more they play, the more they realize they have more in common than their kink. They love to cuddle and snuggle and the aftercare is just as important as the scene. I loved the dom in Jon. He made me feel safe. I was able to cut away any anxiety when ropes, cuffs and *blinks* that machine came out to play because his strong secure hands made sure of it. He’s tough but tender, strong and sensitive, and generous in the bedroom.
The one thing that kept this from 5 full shiny stars would be the repetition. Although I appreciated the reassurance that Jon provided during any scenes, sometimes I wanted to tell him to shut up and get on with it. Ha! He does like brats, so maybe he wouldn’t have minded too much.
I can overlook this slight blemish….Jon and Rick are perfect together and their smoking hot love affair suited me perfectly as well.
