Story Overview:
What’s your pleasure?

From Lynda Aicher, author of the bestselling Wicked Play books, comes an exclusive invitation to the Boardroom—where working late has its rewards.

Life is about power—who has it, who doesn’t.

Anyone who says otherwise hasn’t spent time in Kennedy Keller’s business-casual two-point-five-inch heels. A woman in a world very much run by men, Kennedy does whatever it takes to keep her power, in the office and outside of it.

Until she lets her guard down and decides to submit to a man for just one night. He’s everything she doesn’t usually let herself have: sexy, strong…dominant.

Matt Hamilton said goodbye to the Dom life years ago—power games and the delectable push/pull of dominance and submission might start in the bedroom, but it never stays there.

Reunited in the Boardroom, Matt and Kennedy test their desires and boundaries…and learn that one night is never just one night.

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!
My Review:
A good measure of how much I loved this book...this is the first book I've read from this series, but immediately upon finishing it, I went online to buy print copies of the other two novels and all the ebook novellas. Yeah, I pretty much loved this story. But that's no surprise since I adored Lynda Aicher's Wicked Play series. So, the only question is...why the heck did I wait so long to pick this series up? Big mistake on my part. 

So, the premise of this book...both Matt and Kennedy are executives. They meet at a convention and have a sizzling one-night encounter. They both think that's the end since there was no exchange of any personal details besides first names, so it's a shock when they meet at the Boardroom. The Boardroom is an exclusive sexual play arrangement for some of the town's most exclusive society members of the business community. 

And things evolve from there.

As you would expect, this book is extremely hot. I loved Matt and Kennedy's interactions. There is a ton of chemistry sizzling between them, but neither one is looking for something more...but we know how that will turn out. Kennedy is focused on pleasing her father and maintaining her power in a man's world. Matt is focused on building his new company but still giving the attention that they need to his two teenagers. He doesn't have time for anything else and he learned the hard way with the kid's mother about how things can go when he indulges his proclivities. He does not engage in kink anymore...period. dot. 

Yeah, best laid plans and all that, but I liked the way the author wrote the characters relationship evolution. It felt very realistic. There was some drama and conflict, but none of it ever felt mechanized. The story is just really well-written and I highly recommend it especially if you looking for something a little bit on the spicier side. 

I received a gift copy of this book from the publisher with no obligation to post or review. This review was voluntary and is purely my honest opinion.
