Blurb:  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.


Review: This starts out kind of funny. Jon is in a meeting with one of the firm’s big clients, Rick, but he’s bored out of his mind and decides to check the Grindr type app on his phone to see who is in the area. Low and behold, someone is in the same room with him, and it is none other than Rick.

I loved that these guys were both a bit older and that they had non-obvious roles. Rick is the rich client, but he’s the submissive. Jon is the lower worker bee, but he’s the experienced dom. They meet up and realize they are the perfect match. They are slightly wary of their differences outside of the bedroom, but decide to carry on outside of work. These guys were hot stuff, let me tell you.

Things go well for these two as they get to know one another over various hookups that become more and more frequent as real feelings develop. Unfortunately, work gets in the way and things go sour quickly when Jon is placed in a really bad position by his bigoted bosses. The way things work out really gave me the feels and were just the icing on the cake.

This was another typical solid story from Ms. Witt, which I have come to really enjoy. Every time, I know this is what I will get and I am never disappointed.

Overall Impression: I loved it
