    The Stripper & The Tycoon

    Not Emma Holly's best, but In The Flesh is still a good read. Chloe is in control of the relationship and while she does find herself in the end, she is a complete wench through out most of the book. She treats David like trash and does everything in her power to destroy any chance she has for happiness. The sex is hot, the secondary characters interesting (as usual), and the plot is good, but this book was not as interesting to me as some of her others. I prefer my main characters to have a genuine warmth for themselves and each other and this wasn't there for most of the book.

    Fine erotic romance

    After a successful announcement of acquiring a financially troubled Korean hardware firm, Japanese American David Imakita, CEO of the number one entertainment and gaming software in the world, heads to his car with his best friend and bodyguard Sato. However, they intercede in an incident between a couple; Sato restrains the male but the woman kicks her opponent in his treasured parts. When David tries to keep her from damaging her antagonist further, she goes wild after him; although receiving bruises he subdues her. Thus David meets cheeky Chloe Dubois, the model for his Laura Fleet software program.--- Out of loyalty Sato worries for his boss because of how he seems smitten with Chloe. He has her investigated and learns that she has some nasty skeletons in her family closet. Still, Sato is unable to stop David from falling in love; to her shock the siren reciprocates her employer¿s feelings.--- No one does erotic romance integrated into a solid contemporary love story better than Emma Holly as the sex scenes enhance the lead couple¿s relationship as opposed to being tossed in to shock readers. The glimpse into the software gaming world adds intrigue while the support cast especially Sato and her family to include her missing sister Mary Alice add depth to the enticing plot. Though some readers may feel disturbed by a homosexual encounter and the use of profanity (it is the most descriptive concise verb, noun, and adjective of the sexual act), sub-genre fans will appreciate submissive reading IN THE FLESH.--- Harriet Klausner
