As I mentioned in the other review…this book is NOT for the faint of heart. This is an extremely sexual story and has earned every X in my XXX rating. I’ve made it known that I seriously dislike when people judge a book by saying “too much sex” when it’s labeled as erotica. So please, do not read this book if you have an issue with erotica and/or relationships that are not considered mainstream. Just like with book one, if you enjoy a lot of sizzle and are open-minded, you will really enjoy this book.
Where Office Intrigue introduced us to Luci and her bosses, Landon, Langston, Justin, and Ben and helps us to get a general idea of their situation, this part of the story really delves much deeper into the feelings all the characters start to develop for one another. I loved it! There was chemistry and warm-fuzzies and heartache and love. It was wonderful.
Luci has a serious problem with her self-esteem. Those who don’t understand the Dominant/submissive dynamic might think that’s a given since she’s a submissive. But that’s actually far from true and, in fact, Luci is finding her confidence from being in this unconventional relationship with all these Dominants. She found her power but still has an issue finding her voice.
I’m very thankful Nicole Edwards decided to give us short “Boss Meeting” chapters throughout both books. There were times I found myself getting upset with one of the bosses when there would be a chapter from either his point of view or where he was expressing himself more openly than he did with Luci. Then I’d start to understand his motivations. I am in no way an expert, or even super familiar with the D/s relationship outside of the fictional stories I’ve read so these insights were very helpful.
Ben and Justin remain a bit of a mystery and I can only hope the author decides to give them their HEA someday. I was glad to see more of Jordan in this part of the story and really enjoyed seeing the private side of his life. It definitely helped Luci to open up to him and she needed to have someone to talk to with all that was going on in her life.
As for Langston and Landon, I already knew I liked them. Getting to see their out of the office side really cemented them in my heart. Even though Landon wasn’t particularly happy with his brother through part of this book, they always have each other’s backs and are super supportive of each other and their business partners. They may sometimes be clueless as to what is happening in Luci’s brain, but when they do find out things she keeps close to the vest they are sure to swoop in and give her the love and support she needs and deserves…even when she doesn’t realize that’s what they’re doing.
I want to add in a quick note about this being labeled a BDSM story. Where it does have some BDSM elements, it is more like BDSM light. It may be too much for some temperaments, but if you’re looking for super hard-core whips and chains you will not find it here. There is some punishment and restraints, but nothing over the top for the more main stream mindset.
This second part of the two-part Office Intrigue Duet really elevated the story in so many ways. If you enjoyed the first part you will LOVE this part. Nicole Edwards never lets me down.

Book 2 INTRIGUED OUT OF THE OFFICE 4 stars
Overall reading experience 4.5 stars
This duet had me captivated, and pulled me from a MAJOR bookhanger, and caused one as well. In a year where I put so many books down it was so wonderful to read to back to back stories that reminded my why I love reading; that a great book can transport you to places you never imagines; that great book names you feel the character emotions; that a great book crafts a world that you believe to be true; a great book has you wondering what the cast of characters is up to after you close your kindle, because yes you don’t want to believe they are fictional!
The author has masterfully crafted a story with a woman and more than one man (yes it works amazingly it works)... with BDSM elements that is deeply emotional while being filled with hot, fun, and kinky sex!
Book 1 Office Intrigue finds Luciana (Luci) interviewing for a position with four men who run a powerful PR firm, hence the office in the title.
As the Luci’s story progresses the reader get to join her on her exploration into the world of BDSM.
This duet allows the reader to hear from not just Luci but all four men, Landon, Langston (twins), Justin and Ben. I truly adored this element in the book, it added so much to the story.
It was often times so much fun to watch these men “play” with Luci. I also want to addd I loved loved how they tried very hard not to play with her emotions. I will stop here about emotions because I really do not want to tell you how the story plays out.
Book 2 Intrigued out of the Office takes place right after book 1 ends so make sure to have it read for the minute to finish book 1.
Book 2 brings with it additional characters who really added to the story. We get to meet the twins parents, I truly adored them, King (yes there is a story read nope not telling read the book) and Mel, the twins parents.
And finally finally getting an up close and personal (like really up close look) look at Luci’s friend who told her about the position with the PR was eye opening to say the least ….ok yes super HOT BDSM Christmas scene lol
The look into the vast and diverse world of BDSM through Luci’s eyes was hot yes but also emotional and the author worked to educate the reader as to what the characters were feeling.
This is a story that is unconventional, hot, compelling and in the end a book that continues to run though my head long after I put it down.
I am so thankful the author is releasing the duet on the same day for readers, this story is this duet it is a long layered well done story with multiple main characters so being able to live in the moment and read all the way through I feel will make the readers experience amazing!
The blurb informs the readers there is lots of sex in various combinations which are both hot and laced with emotion especially as the story progresses.
All of this is accomplished with a number of very well crafted characters and scenes that was just WOW captivating, intriguing, mesmerizing and thought provoking.
I know this duet was billed as the end of the story and though it is a happy for Luci and her story… I truly hope the author will write a happy for the rest of the cast.
Ms Edwards did such an amazing job with the characters in this one I truly want to see a happy for all of them.
