Then there is the big boss, Cal Ryedale, who keeps hounding her. He is stubborn, conceited, has no respect for his staff, and has been known to throw his golden cufflinks at people when mad. But he also oozes sexual energy whenever they are together. Imogen has a mental hit list going for the day she snaps and goes on a murderous rampage. Cal is often high on that list.
While visiting Wicked Ways to get marketing ideas, Imogen learns of a members-only club in the back. She is really surprised to notice that she already knows several of its members.
**** FOUR STARS! This story is written in the First Person. It is an interesting blend of Erotica and Modern Contemporary. The author succeeds in showing how difficult it is to be a single mother in the modern world; trying to juggle her home life, work life, and perhaps get a little private time to relax every now and then. The author is British. I mention this because if you live in the United States of America you should be forewarned of a couple of things. First, some English words are spelled differently. Second, you may be confused by some of the slang words; however, most are easily understood by how they are used in the sentences. (But I am still wondering what a baby’s dummy is. A pacifier?) But make no mistake about it, this is an awesome tale that will keep your attention from the first page until the last. I loved every minute of sleep that I lost while reading this gem. ****

Let me just say this now, the moment I knew I would love to have this woman as my best friend was when she admitted to having a secret hit list with her ex and his bimbo on the top. As we go through the story her secret list continues to grow but luckily for her, she has enough self-control to not act on that impulse.
Now she faces the job of all jobs, she is assigned to come up with a way to advertise Sean and Cherry’s sex toy store in a family friendly way. Oh it gets better when she finds that there is a sex club hidden behind the private door. After what she has went through I was mentally begging her to just let go and live a little. Experience sex at its greatest, find the woman that was hidden deep inside of her, buried by the role of mother, ex-wife and provider for her family. I have to say the way this was written, this was an awesome twist to this story and took the plot on a whole different direction than what we started out believing it to be.
Cal Ryedale is not only the boss, but he will become the master of so much more. He will take her to new heights and places that she would never dream of going. I really liked the chemistry between those two and how she finally let her walls down and began seeing the worth of men again.
I won’t spoil the book for you by going any farther into their story. You must read it to get the full passionate and steamy experience. I really found that with each chapter I could relate to Imogen more and more as a middle aged woman who finds herself at a cross roads in life. She took what life handed her and made the best out of it; even gained a bit more thrill than she thought was possible. Normally I connect with the male character more than the female, but her fire and determination that was mingled in with her fear and insecurity melted my heart. It made that fight to not only survive but succeed even stronger, which I feel we need more female characters like that in the book world.
This book and the author have made it on my list of books to reread and authors to watch.
