*fanning self*  Okay then.  When I chose to read this, I remember commenting, “Yum! This sounds like it has the potential for some over the desk goodness.”  Alas, I was disappointed they never got to the “over the desk goodness.”  They talked about it, and was heading there at the end of the book, but *sigh* fade to black.  They did get to some other very hot stuff though.  Whew!  I, personally, liked this book.  I found Alec sexy and hot!  That British stiff upper lip and all.  *sigh* He has ethics and tries very hard to stick to them.  How was he to know that an American chit could drive him so crazy and challenge all his closely held beliefs on who he was?   Amber is ambitious.  She works hard and plans to go places.  Her personal life, boooorrrrrring!  The guys she meets just don’t do it for her.  But that new guy, he appears to be the dominating soul she may be looking for.  Too bad he doesn’t do office romance.   In spite of these two knowing the pit falls of an office romance, especially with him being a superior, and dancing around each other for the first half of the book, some things are just meant to be.    I noticed some reviewers did not like this dance, but I found it endearing.  Alec, the big bad Dom, tried so hard not to be tempted by Amber.  He knew it could cause trouble for him and career issues for her.  But Amber knew what she wanted and went after it.   Yes there was a twenty year age difference that added some interesting dynamics to the story like the frequent references to Faust and/or the pop culture graphic novels Sandman.  I personally have read neither one, but they both figured heavily in this story and underlined some of the age differences.  I liked that and thought it added dimension to the story.    Amber had exuberance and was willing to go the extra mile to learn what Alec liked and wanted.  Alec had the maturity and experience to handle her, the way she wanted to be handled.  (And did he handle her! *sigh*)  I loved their roll play.  It was so hot!  All of it.   This is not the typical erotic office romance.  NOTHING happened in the office except professionalism and the job.  I had to respect that.  Outside of work however, once they got past the “this can’t work” thing, well . . . as I said, “HOT!”   The ending was a bit of a letdown.  This writer writes such a wonderful sex scene that I would have liked to experience the “over the desk” scene rather than fade to black.  But, I can live with what went before and use my imagination.  That being said, I would have liked the office politics to have been tied up a little more tightly.  This had an unfinished feel to it.  Like deadlines were looming or word count had been reached so end of story.  That is really my only complaint about it.  It ended too soon.  I wanted more.     As for it being a book two – I don’t see how it relates to the first book in any way other than maybe the D/s aspects of the story.  This is very much a stand-alone book.  I haven’t read the first book yet, but I will.   This does get edgy, so those of you don’t like kinky sex in your reading, *waves hand and intones* “This is not the book you are looking for.  Move along.”  For those of you whose minds reside in darker places, enjoy a hot read.   I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This erotic romance is the story of Amber and Alec. Amber is Alec's twenty something assistant, forbidden in more ways than one but that doesn't stop them from engaging in an affair that could have long term consequences for them both professionally and personally. But though the sex scratches an itch they both have, will it be the start of something deeper or the road to ruin? I really enjoyed this story. Alec is a man with a dominant personality, ready and willing to use that side of him in the bedroom with a willing submissive. But though he knows this is what Amber is offering him, his conscience is very clear that this could have negative consequences for her in the workplace and before he gives in to his deepest desires, he finds a way to protect her as much as he can from any professional fallout. I really liked this about him, that he didn't just give in to his sexual attraction to this younger woman but made sure that it would be as safe for her as possible. Amber is a fun, flirty, smart young woman, with a crush on her boss that goes deeper than that - she sees that he could give her what she is craving sexually but is disappointed that he won't act on the attraction - until he finally does and then the gloves come off. The sex scenes between them are hot and definitely on the kinky side as the D/s power dynamic comes into play. But along with those scenes are ones of a more tender, intimate nature as their feelings for each other deepen. Alec realizes that his concerns about their age difference and working relationship are only a hindrance on his side, something he must come to terms with. Amber is willing to go the distance with him, it's up to him to accept that or walk away. Overall I found this to be a really interesting and unique forbidden love affair story with a sweet romance hiding underneath the kink. 5 stars!
