When a yearly meeting of Dominance and submission takes a new direction, will both partners be up for the journey of a lifetime?
Every year billionaire Richard Barrett looks forward to a week-long liaison with what he describes as ‘the perfect sub’. Between lectures and meeting and pouring over earning figures for his aeronautics company he gets together with Serena Carter to explore their darkest desires, their joint love of BDSM and play mind games and body games together. After their week they part ways and continue their lives.
Except something always has to give in this kind of relationship and when Serena finds herself in a position with not just ropes attached but also a future of strings she’s shocked and confused by her wealthy playboy’s sudden change in attitude and his dreams of marriage.
Working for Him takes employment to whole new levels and the author, Ms Edwards, writes with an easy to read style and certainly knows how to crank up the temperature in the sex scenes. I enjoyed the premise a lot, and liked how much Richard thought of Serena. I also liked how his determination both in and out of the bedroom showed him to be a good man. The characterization of Serena was also well portrayed and I enjoyed being in her head during the down-and-dirty scenes. Richard certainly knows what he’s doing. Phew!
If you like heat, a good plot that you can fall into for a little steamy fantasy time then Working for Him is a good choice. I’ll certainly read more by this author as her writing ticks all the boxes and pushes all the buttons!
