Overview

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author Julia Kent:

One playboy CEO. One curvy, determined administrative assistant. One hidden camera.

What could go wrong?

Lydia Charles is determined to show her boss that getting caught reading Fifty Shades of Grey in the parking lot can help the company bottom line. Preparing for the biggest work project of her life, a romance book marketing campaign, she never expected that an actual romance would interfere with the business of romance. Tough and cynical, her last office relationship exploded in her face. No man was worth it.

Until Matt Jones, a boss she didn't know she had - a boss who took the Director of Social Media job she was gunning for - swept her out of a promotion and off her feet. Lydia didn't want to respect him, much less like him - but her body had a mind of its own, turning traitor in chance encounters. After a steamy elevator episode that left her missing her panties - and most of her resolve - she decided that maybe it was time to let him get inside her - in more ways than one.

When he closed off to her unexpectedly, hurt feelings unleash a torrent of tension, with his order to follow his command triggering malicious obedience - following the exact letter of the law - in her. Interest from Matt's eccentric millionaire friend Jeremy left her hot and bothered, with threesome dreams that made her want to obey - but in the bedroom. Not the boardroom.

What Lydia didn't know was that "Matt" was really Michael Bournham, the CEO of the company, part of an undercover reality television stunt. Keeping his hands off Lydia's luscious curves was becoming an exercise in restraint, but what was harder? Keeping his heart from her. For Michael, Lydia's malicious obedience ignited a night of unbridled passion in the office that made him forget everything - including the rolling cameras - until it was too late.

Sometimes the best way to break the rules is to follow them...

    Sick of it

    This is a good book, but I AM SICK of books being released in installments!!!!!! All publishers and authors are trying to do is find ways to trick readers into spending more money than the material is actually worth.

    Incredible! This book satisfied my craving for a good BBW Erotic Romance. Lydia is a cute character with a good heart, and Matt is hot as heck. The references to Fifty Shades were funny, especially in an erotic romance that's just as hot! I will be chomping at the bit for part two. Bravo, Miss Kent.

    I was going to buy it since it was .99, but then I read it was an installment book.  This has become ridiculous......having to buy multiple books to buy the whole story.  I am boycotting all installment books.

    Really good but frustrating!

    I wish I would have known it was part one of a trilogy, but after 400pp and no movement in storyline I realized something was up. I would have definitely waited until the other volumes were released. It talks about fifty shades, well author should have been like them and released series in its entirety. I should have known when the only other books from author are broken up part books. I dont know if I will purchase anymore.

    I'm very disappointed in this book. I'm glad it was only $.99. I love to read but this book was 400+ pages and never went anywhere. It is also a the first in a series which I didn't know.
    I don't mind buying a series but I want to know ahead of time I'm not getting a conclusion after 400+ pages.
    The storyline is just fine but the writing is just okay and needs more polishing. Has good potential

    THIS BOOK WAS AWESOME!!!! The hero was delicious, the heroine feisty, and the ending done PERFECTLY! You know the "twist" is coming (I mean, he's wearing the camera the whole time) but the author wrapped it up perfectly. Loved this!!!

    All I can say is.. when is the next one coming out?? What a cliff hanger!
    Kent spins some quirky, well developed, relatable characters that you can't help but love. (Jeremy is my favorite!) Coupled with steamy sex scenes, this book is shiver-inducingly sexy and utterly brilliant. I am dying to see what happens next!

    Hot, sexy contemporary romance with a really sharp heroine and a likeable hero. I loved the idea of a CEO who goes undercover in his own company, and Lydia's love/hate relationship with her new boss was pitch perfect. I love finding new series and can't wait for the next book in the trilogy.

    Disappointing....the book moved very slow with lots of unnecessary fillers...I had to skip ahead on some parts. The female lead was very infuriating. I tried to like her but all she did was remain catty and too sarcastic throughout the entire book. Hopefully she changes drastically in the upcoming books.

    First half was great - clever dialogue and LOL funny. BUT there is no ending and I will not buy the series b/c I am annoyed with this ploy.
    Then author started to repeat herself and the story ended up going no where fast. So I found myself critiquing the details... 35+ brillant billionare falls for a sz 16 25yr old admin...he has no concern for sex harassment at work & on video...duh...her cube and his office must be isolated in the bldg for no co-workers to ever be around during any of their scenes!
