Alexa Drake is strong, confident and schmexy, or is she? She runs the London office at Patrick Collins Media, the way Jennifer Domenico describes the way the staff interacts with her reminded me of Sandra Bullock in The Proposal. You know where they all turn and run, IM-ing each other that she is in the office. She is commanding and seems like she is in control, however not where Scott Patrick (SP) is concerned. He is the only man to make her to go her knees, literally.
Scott Patrick is dominant, sexy, funny, and sometimes just a complete @ $ $. He doesn't believe in love, but if anyone is going to change that it's Lexi. He takes Lexi as his sub and agrees to show her how to become successful in business, what he doesn't count on is how he will feel once it is time to let her go. He goes to London to see her, and try to win her back, but Alexa is going to do everything in her power to not allow Scotty back in her heart.
"You can act as bad as you want, Alexa. You and I both know I taught you how to f&^%. I created you. You and me, we'll never be over. You know it. I know it."
If they didn't have enough drama though, SP's best friend and co-owner of their agency sets his sights on the gorgeous Lexi. Brett is the complete polar opposite of Scott in every single way! Scott is dominating and Brett is kind and gentle, and poor Alexa is caught in this game. My heart breaks for her, because as strong as she is, she is completely devistated by how Scott ended their relationship. Trust is not something she has with almost anyone, and she basically shut down all of her emotions to keep herself safe.
Alexa and Scott are both damaged, they battle quite a bit and she is often raging her own war in her head. The sexual desire to be submissive, but the fact is that in her business world she is dominant. Scott is her one weakness and has the ultimate power to break her completely. The s e x and fore-play is very descriptive, and completely provocative. I personally loved the verbal sparing most.
"Poor Scotty, you just can't stand that you don't have as much power over me as you used to. It's killing you, isn't it?"
There are a lot of twists, turns and some Oh my what moments. It is definitely not your typical love story, but what a story it is. I can't wait to read more from this author.
Alexa becomes Scott's assistant, later proposes an arrangement to innocent Alexa that would not only groom her in all she'll need to be one a great business woman, but also groom her to be his in every way. Some years later she gets a promotion, but just prior, he brakes her heart by braking up their arrangement in a very demeaning way so she can feel free to pursue her career dreams and relocate to London when the promotion is offered.
Needless to say, she's heart broken, becomes a hard business woman and devotes her life to her career with some kink of her own. Scott is pretty much broken too, but we only see the absolute dominant grand a$$hole he is to her. As a reader I truly had a love/hate relationship with Scott's character. It aggrevated me how they both excused oral things performed with other people as not having sex, simply because there was no intercourse.
Anyway, in comes Brett, looking to mend Alexas heart, but what a surprise when he turns out to be the total opposite of dominant Scott.... boy oh boy! And then there is Martina, what a hoot! Every office should have one of her, and we all should dream on having a friend like her.
So an excellent and interesting read- I recommend it!
