Always intense, super sexy and entertaining, I've never been let down by a book by Lynda Aicher! In this one a woman gets to explore some of her deepest fantasies, only to discover that the man fulfilling them is one of her bosses at work. Brie decides to take a chance on her sexual fantasies when a friend gives her a night at the Boardroom, a sex club that rotates to different boardroom locations. It's top quality and fully confidential, with non disclosure agreements a must as the men and women who frequent it are well known in the business community. Brie has always wanted to be blindfolded and pleasured by multiple men, and there's a particular man on her night that anchors her and makes her feel safe even though she can't see him. It makes her want to experience it again, and as it turns out, her second night, he's there too. But it's not until she's at work and he calls her by Brie instead of her professional name of Brighton that she realizes that man is none other than one of her bosses at her company, Ryan. Ryan is the lawyer for the club and he recognizes Brie right away, but he can't reveal to her that he knows who she is. When he inadvertently slips at work, he's already prepared to deal with the professional fallout if she should reveal the existence of the club. But Brie surprises him by wanting to continue her boardroom adventures - with him. What starts as a fun sexual escapade becomes more as they start to care for each other. But Ryan is determined to stay clear of relationships and commitment, even as he discovers he wants to be with Brie outside of their agreement. They work well together, they play well together - can he overcome his issues to be in a real relationship too? Blind Trust looks at a bunch of kinks including multiple sex partners, exhibitionism, and voyeurism all in the process of delivering a sexy, emotional romance. Ryan and Brie are obviously sexually compatible and while their initial encounters involve other partners, it gradually evolves into a monogamous relationship. Their work relationship gets a bit complicated though they still manage to get their projects done and there are some sexy scenes that happen outside of the official Boardroom club. Trusting one another with sex isn't enough though, and Ryan must overcome some issues from his past to give Brie the happy ending she deserves. There are some interesting secondary characters and I'm looking forward to reading their stories, and more of this series!

From Lynda Aicher, author of the bestselling Wicked Play books, comes an exclusive invitation to the Boardroom—where working late has its rewards A blindfold. Four men intent on only her pleasure. Knowing she’s being watched. It’s her ultimate erotic fantasy—and it’s really happening. Brighton Wakeford has played by the rules her entire life. From her country-club upbringing to her job as a paralegal, she’s the image of propriety and class. And she’s tired of it. An invitation to the Boardroom is Brighton’s chance to transform. Here she’s Brie—free to explore her wildest cravings, her most scandalous desires. As the lawyer for the exclusive Boardroom club, Ryan Burns knows confidentiality is vital.

So when he recognizes a beautiful, blindfolded and very willing new participant as a coworker, he knows he should back off. Brighton Wakeford is business. The Boardroom is about pleasure. But the rules are about to change. Review: This is the second book in the Boardroom series and though I did not read the first book it did not hinder my enjoyment of reading this book. This book starts out very sexily and does not stop. I liked all the forbidden-ness in the book, from the Boardroom and what goes on in there to the workplace romance. I really liked Bri and Ryan, both separately and only. I found them more likeable as they worked out their issues and became a couple. The Author is very good a writing a well-rounded story. It is a short read, so I easily read it in an afternoon. 3.5Stars *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book provided by the publisher.*

Review Love this series so much, I'm already anticipating the next book. This is Ryan and Brighton's (aka Brie)story. Brighton wants to experience a night in the boardroom for her Happy Birthday and so her friend Lori arranges this evening for her; having Jacob bring her. Understandably nervous and blindfolded, once she relaxes enough and seems to gravitate to one man there Ryan, who is also house council and friend of Trevor. When Ryan recognizes Brighton from the law firm they both work at, it sets off a whole different path for these two. Brie meets with Lori and wants to return to the Boardroom one more time and Ryan is there. It's then that what Brie's instinct was telling her was true. That Ryan was the man in the Boardroom. An attorney at the firm she works for and now a man whom she's working closely on a case on. These two are flammable, totally. I wasn't sure which way they would end up and you have to read the book to find out and get the full, panty melting story. I liked Brighton and Ryan both. I didn't care much for Lori her friend and also a member of the Boardroom. There were times when I wanted to smack her when Brie had some very valid questions and Lori's response was not only immature but played Brie's dilemma off like she was insignificant. She really rubbed me the wrong way. But the real story lies between Ryan and Brie and it's another stellar read from the Boardroom. Yes you need this one! **arc from NetGalley and Publisher for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.** (less)

While this could easily be read as a standalone, I went back and reread the previous book because I misremembered just enough to keep confusing myself! Brie is a paralegal and Ryan is a partner at the law firm she works at. So basically, this is a office romance with a dash of kinky sex club, abusive childhoods, and emotional issues. Brie hides her emotions – hides pretty much her entire self – behind a placid country-club facade – years of her mother nitpicking any perceived flaw have led her to be afraid to be anything other than blandly perfect. The results of Ryan’s abusive childhood mean he expects any sort of relationship to be quid pro quo – if someone does something nice for him, he expects they’re always looking for something in return – and he approaches life very logically, with little to no emotional input. His ex-wife basically called him an emotionless robot. A somewhat anonymous encounter (he recognizes her, but she doesn’t recognize him) at a kinky sex club leads to an awareness that they can’t ignore. I especially liked the progress of the relationship in this book. There’s not really any giant romantic gestures or big discussions – they just slowly start spending more time together to the point that, by the time Brie needs to find a new apartment, Ryan simply invites her to move in with him, pointing out quite logically that they’re already spending lots of time at his place and then adds in the adorably sweet addendum that he really likes waking up with her and cuddling with her after work. Brie is suffocating in the mold her mother has made for her, and she struggles to figure out if what she feels for Ryan is because she wants him, or because he fits her mom’s “perfect husband” checklist. This – and Ryan’s scars from his abusive family – are the main roadblocks to their relationship, and I thought were handed very well. “I’m not very good at this.” The honesty came out on a rush of trust he rarely extended. She ran her fingers through the short hairs near his nape, inciting small shivers that chased each other to his heart. “I’ve noticed.” Her smile matched the teasing spark in her eyes. “And I get it.” His brows dipped. “You do?” She lifted to press her lips to his in a short but gentle kiss. “I do.” Her tongue traced a quick path over her bottom lip. “It’s a little new for me too.” “You?” He shook his head. “I can’t see that.” Her brow lifted in staunch reprimand. “Getting f***ed by my boss in a room full of watchers is not something I can claim experience with.” As with the previous entry in the series, this book is seriously steamy, with the kink focus being on exhibitionism this time. Besides that, there’s a lot of witty banter between Brie and Ryan, which I loved. The only piece I didn’t care much for was Lori, Brie’s friend who’s a member of the Boardroom and the person who initially set her up with them. She seemed very dismissive of Brie’s worries at times, and I wished Brie would’ve had a more empathetic sounding board. Overall, I very much enjoyed this book, and I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a steamy office romance! I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
