Without a doubt, Nicole Edwards is well known for her steamy, erotic novels that have an emphasis on dominant/submissive relationships, BDSM, partner-sharing, and various forms of sexual kink. These elements are neither a surprise NOR a game changer for me. In fact, I am not easily offended by erotica, regardless of how it is packaged and delivered. But moving these elements to an office setting in such a pervasive way, DID, however, give me several moments of pause. So, before moving forward with my review, let me first address, AND put to rest, my initial concerns.
In today’s climate--where the sexual harassment and assault of women in the work place by men in a position of power, permeates the news almost daily--it’s only natural for a novel with a strong emphasis on sex within the confines of an office setting, to cultivate a bit of unease. Personally, it was the secrecy (with regards to the boss’ true intent), as well as the term “job requirements” (to describe the direction in which they hoped to move their office interactions), that I disliked the most. But putting those two objections aside, I feel that hesitant and/or sensitive readers need to be informed of a few important and very pertinent facts before proceeding:
1. ALL participants are willing, consenting adults. AT NO TIME was Luci forced, threatened, or coerced into doing something against her will.
2. Luci’s job was NEVER in jeopardy. Throughout this book (and the next), it was made crystal clear, that regardless of Luci’s participation and/or choices, her position within the company was always safe and secure.
3. Each of Luci’s bosses recognized and respected her true value to their company. When it came to her work, Luci was given a great deal of responsibility and was often praised for her abilities and efforts.
4. This is a work of FICTION--a fantasy put in print--one that many women might like to indulge in and enjoy.
So... having now addressed any potential concerns, let me move on by saying that “Office Intrigue” is by far, one of the hottest, naughtiest, most explosive books I have read to date! I swear, I could practically see the steam rising from my Kindle!!
While the mutually agreed upon office arrangement between these 5 individuals is sinfully sexy and unique, it’s the compelling characters that hooked me, keeping me engaged from start to finish. Each of Luci’s wickedly naughty bosses are more than just sexual dominants. They have distinctly different personalities to go along with their distinctly different kinks and needs. I loved peeling back the layers, discovering more about the men who—not only claim Luci’s body—but who will ultimately claim a piece of her heart.
But by the end of part one in this duet, it becomes abundantly clear that not all of these men will claim an equal part. As feelings evolve and the dynamic between their interactions changes, so does their relationships moving forward. And, as each of them will eventually ascertain, introspection and self-discovery is not solely reserved for Luci—a complication to their arrangement that was totally unforeseen. Or… was it?
Since both parts of this Office Intrigue duet have been released simultaneously, there's no break in the story's flow. As far as I'm concerned, this lack of interruption, makes for a wonderful added plus!
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.
