Publisher's Summary

Sophie Scaife almost ran away once, trading her ticket to college for a ticket to Tokyo. But a delayed flight and a hot one-night stand with a stranger changed her mind, putting her firmly on track to a coveted position at a New York fashion magazine.

When the irresistible stranger from that one incredible night turns out to be her new boss - billionaire and publishing magnate Neil Elwood - Sophie can't resist the chance to rekindle the spark between them...and the opportunity to explore her submissive side with the most dominant man she's ever known.

Neil is the only man who has ever understood Sophie's need to submit in the bedroom and the only man who has ever satisfied those desires. When their scorching, no-strings-attached sexual relationship becomes something more, Sophie must choose between her career and heart...or risk losing them both.

Great read. .. WARNING cliffhanger

This was a great story though the British accent kind of threw me off at first. After I got used to it, I was able to enjoy the book. I was not warned so I would like to warn you that there's a cliffhanger!! and the second book is not out on audible yet! other than that really great story and amazing sex scenes!

Subpar all around

Pretty boring, no story line or depth of characters, and unoriginal on top of it.
Narrator was a bit annoying.

Enough already

The book was decent enough. The male character did not treat the female like a BDSM whipping post. I just can't understand why the author couldn't wrap the story up in 12 hours... and to add insult to injury, it looks like the story continues for another 4 books. I just don't want to know the ending bad enough to commit to four more books.

I'm on the fence

It was an okay read.
The pace was a bit slow and I found the main characters annoying at times. The book didn't feel like a complete story. I'm okay with cliff hangers, but this was an abrupt end to a building story.
I'm not sure if I'll continue the next book or not...

Tooooo much of the same ol same ol.

The narrating was awful!!!! the first book started out good. I finished it. I was looking forward to the second book. The second book was such a disappointment. I didn't even finish. The author over did it with the story line.
I felt like I was just reliving each chapter.

unoriginal, boring, poor storyline & uninteresting

Characters were not built much at all. There really was NO story. The entire book is around mediocre sex. Even the sex scenes were not that original. The narration was also not good. The hero's voice sounded like an old woman with the worst British accent you have ever heard. I am VERY disappointed. It was painful to listen to it, so I decided to stop with five hours left and move on to something better. I recommend you steer completely off this book.

Couldn't finish it...

Too many things I couldn't handle about the book. Their age difference was a turn off for me, maybe because I'd not be inclined to want a man 20+ years my senior, at least not as my sexual fantasy. Then the BDSM got too rough for me when she wanted him to hit her with a belt and be spanked very hard. Then he begins talking about his experience as a sub to a bad dom, a male dom! Done. Obviously this wasn't the book for me, though many others seemed to love it. To each their own. Wish it had been a little more clear in the description. Still shaking it off...ugh!
