Blurb: I’m used to being in charge.
In the courtroom. In life. In the bedroom.
But then I met him.
He brings me literally to my knees.
Handsome. Charismatic. Sexy as hell.
He’s everything I desperately crave to possess.
I’m burning to get him beneath me just to have a taste.
Turns out, though, one taste isn’t enough.
And he’s starved for me too.
Two alphas fighting for dominance.
He thrives on control and I can’t give it up.
A battle of wills.
The bedroom is the battlefield and our hearts are on the line.
Review: This was definitely not the knock-down, drag-out dominant-fest the blurb suggested it would be, and it pretty much covered the gamut of tropes – instalove, GFY, Age Gap, first time, etc. Regardless, it was a somewhat surprisingly enjoyable afternoon read.
This story is pretty low on angst, yet high on sexy times and ending with satisfying sweetness. It was like a yummy meal from start to end. At first, it seemed like the typical hookup surprisingly turns into employer/employee scenario, but it didn’t play out in the typical way which I found refreshing. It does have some pretty horrible side characters and some pretty unrealistic annoying aspects, as well. I think this story would have benefited from toning down certain things, such as the negative portrayal of almost all of the female characters, or the office Christmas party essentially turning into a slutfest was a bit much and a good example of some really over-the-top sillyness. However, I was able to set most of that aside and just enjoy this for what it was – an sexy story about two guys who just fit, shared some amazing chemistry and took advantage of their second chances.
Overall Impression: I liked it
