In this New York Times best-selling erotic trilogy, a buttoned-up businesswoman takes her friend's advice and has a fling with a stranger on a trip to Vegas - only to find herself under his mysterious, sexy power both in the boardroom and the bedroom.
Kasie Fitzgerald knows who she's supposed to be. She's a rising-star-workaholic at a global consulting firm. She's the fiancée of a well-connected man who's won the approval of her parents. People know that she's reliable, serious, proper, cautious, pragmatic, and yes, a little predictable. She's who Dave and her family want her to be.
But as her 30th birthday looms, buried feelings begin to resurrect. Her friend takes her to Vegas for one last wild-and-crazy night. In a dress much shorter and sexier than anything she has ever dared to wear before, she hits the blackjack tables. And meets him. Under the tailored clothes it's clear that this is a man who is intense, powerful, and maybe even a little dangerous. With a touch of trepidation she accepts his invitation to get a drink, and before long, she's in his hotel room.
She never gets his full name. Perhaps his anonymity is one of the reasons she's able to give herself over to him and to the moment so completely. Perhaps it's why she's just had the most exquisite and passionate sex of her life. Shaken by her own behavior, Kasie tries to chalk it up to one crazy night. But when the mysterious gentleman she's just had a fling with shows up in her office - as the CEO of a firm her company does a billion dollars of business with a year, demanding that she handle his account, and so much more - things will never be the same again. And there's no telling where this will go....

Where oh where do I begin? This story reminds me of Accidentally On Purpose, except not as well done, AOP did a good job of making you truly care about the main character, this book not so much, she seemed constantly on the verge of becoming a megalomaniac and seemed to enjoy it. Still it was a good read.
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
I kept getting bored... so I would switch to another book. I bet if I actually listen to this...I would find it good...but I don't know... nothing is catching my attention long enough to mak me want to keep listening.
Jus eh for me.
A sale book. Don't waste credit or buy
I don't buy "romance" novels, and after reading all the Sophie Katz books by this author, had no reason to suspect this would be a dramatic change from the humorous, self-effacing, witty and clever Sophie Katz mysteries.
Boy, was I wrong! This is total eroticism VERY thinly disguised as a woman's search for independence and a sense of self. When it began with a woman on the brink of marriage reluctantly trying to have a good time in Las Vegas in provocative and revealing clothing, I still thought it might be a humorous example of how badly that could turn out.
However, the book is a continual venture into all eroticism, all the time. The message seems to say that to find yourself, you first have to act out all of your sexual fantasies (generally in front of others). Only after doing this again, and again, and again....can you stand on your own two feet (or generally lie down).
There is no humor, no wit, and certainly no mystery. Sophie Katz is much too smart to be caught dead in this book! What was this author thinking??
Didn't care for the story. I like Grace Grant.
Don't waste your credit or money
Love Romantic Erotica with a twist , thrill, suspense and a great story !
Well the passion was electric, the connection between Kasie and Robert was so hot!
I felt as though Kassie did change drastically though, forgetting how to treat people, only wanting to get to the top! Although it's only the first book, I look forward to seeing how her life continues to change. Where Robert will lead her ??? Where it leads them as a couple. I'm glad she realized her true self though, and her needs for passion. I do like her.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
I really disliked both the main characters, Robert & Cassie. Cassie, a Harvard graduate and corporate consultant, was afraid to disappoint her heartless parents or break up with her boring boyfriend/almost fiancé. Then Cassie has a one night stand with Robert, who shows up again as a client of her firm and just takes over her life. Robert, while rich and good looking, is ruthless, cold and dominating. Cassie is weak, insecure and self-centered. They both gave me the creeps. Yuck!
I love the reader, I have listened to other books by her and she as always did an outstanding job. However, I kept waiting for the story. I really thought it fell flat. I kept thinking she had a really great idea, kind of different from the standard, but she wasn't able to develop it well. I was really disappointed.
Someone who has no qualms with cheating and abuse of power
Taken a different direction after Part 1
All over the board but mostly just apathy
I just did not like the direction this story took after Part I. It kept spiraling into a bigger mess and the whole "the people with power make the rules" thing was uncomfortable to listen to.
