Publisher's Summary

Ben is the last unattached member of the five-man executive team of K&A Associates. The other four, all Masters, have found the submissives of their dreams. That's fine. The sharp-edged lawyer knows he's the most hardcore of them all, with extreme tastes as a Master he satisfies physically through experienced club submissives. He doesn't really need anything more.

Marcie has loved Ben since she was 16. He's never behaved as anything more than a protective big brother, a family friend. But now she's 23 and starting her career as a corporate investigator. She may be a blood-and-bone-deep submissive, but she won't hesitate to use her aggressive talents to prove she's meant to be his. With a Master as tough as Ben, she'll have to take whatever measures are needed - even if her deepest desire isn't a hostile takeover of his heart, but an unconditional surrender to it.

Another Winner

This is a powerful book for those of us who like the darker side of the darker side. As with every book in this genre, the characters' resistance to taking the step we all know they're going to take gets a little annoying. However Ms. Hill makes the details and nature of that resistance sufficiently entrancing. Marcie is a delightful character. She is ballsy in a way that makes her desire for total submission compelling. Starting each chapter with correspondence between Marcie and Ben is a great way to briefly recount important backstory issues as well as foreshadow the events in the future. Very clever device and another example of why I love Joey W. Hill's work so much
Maxine Mitchell, as always is right on the money. Her voice is like so much honey but morphs to the characters as needed. She brings Marcie to life.
Ms. Hill has one of the most imaginative minds in the setup and execution of BDSM scenes I'm convinced she could train Doms to do the real deal. Many of the scenes are accompanied by the initial reaction of Holy F**k! how does she come up with this stuff!? Then of course one must deal with the visceral response the scenes elicit. Suffice to say that clothing must be adjusted frequently.
