Mae (personal assistant) and Liam (grumpy boss) lead us through a beautiful, unique relationship that felt believable in the insecurity and doubt both individuals felt. There were charming, “supportive” friends that unintentionally created awkwardness, hilarious situations (I giggled the whole way through the spa scene and I LOVED Mae’s devotion to duct tape), and such sweetness in Mae and Liam’s relationship as they learned the depths of their trust for each other as well as how compatible they really were. The sex scenes were varied- playful and exploratory in the beginning, raw and edgy at times, and poignant and romantic as Mae and Liam’s feelings for each other ripened.
Kelly did a wonderful job introducing a female-led relationship in a soft, non-threatening way. I never felt that I craved dominance in relationships, but Liam’s reverence towards Mae was so sexy- the idea of having a man who truly gains pleasure in making a woman happy has certainly been a myth in my life. It added so much realism that Mae wasn’t a ball-grinding, super demanding alpha female and that while Liam was submissive, he wasn’t a pushover. Tiptoeing outside of the mainstream male/female roles was risky on Kelly’s part, but it was a risk worth taking- it’s certainly changed my perceptions about the characteristics that my ideal “hero” would need to possess.
I loved this book. I know that some people might be uncomfortable with the idea of female-led relationships, and I challenge you to give this book a shot and approach Mae and Liam’s relationship with an open, adventurous mind. Not only will you find yourself laughing out loud at the dialogue and breathless in anticipation in their encounters as I was, but I think you’ll also see the sweetness and rarity in this story that I saw and was completely enchanted by.
A slip causing a twisted ankle was all it to make her realize the Alpha in Liam Knight, making her want him even more if that’s at all possible. He just took charge of her care by driving her home, taking her car into the mechanic, stocking her fridge with food, wrapping her ankle, and carrying her to bed. It was kind of nice and annoying how Liam was fussing over her. Of course, one would wonder why complain when a rich, gorgeous millionaire is doting on your every move. Yes, that part is nice, but it’s annoying how he just takes over. So domineering, so alpha, so…BOSSY. Well, he is her boss after all. Still, Mae is known to be bossy too, especially when it comes to the boudoir. Soon, she realized what a submissive Alpha male he is with his begging and pleading to touch her and do things to her. Mae is bossy and he seems to like it.
In the midst of this constant foreplay and her “no touch-no masturbating” rule, the two contend with a gossiping columnist, who blatantly calls her fat and him a chubby chaser. It kinda makes you wonder exactly how fat she really was. I mean, yes, she’s snarky, witty, and rough around the edges, but I couldn’t stand how bossy she got.
I mean, was this it? Was this story nothing but sexual and domineering foreplay? Not only that, but I thought the two characters weren’t good together at all. And where does the contract come in? I mean, that was the title of the book. Shouldn’t there be some type of “arrangement?”
I just got tired with this book.
