Daniel Brown is a man of routine. You might even call him a control freak. So when the new Director of Marketing, Ryan Cole, starts shaking up Daniel’s routine, Daniel doesn’t know how to react. He finds Ryan intriguing, infuriating and oh so attractive, but he doesn’t mix business with pleasure. As their games start to grow kinkier, dare Daniel give in to his desire to let Ryan top him?
This is a really quick read. Just as you feel like you’re getting to know the characters, it’s over. While this story definitely has some erotic content, it’s relatively tame, but I get that is open to interpretation.
As other readers have pointed out, Daniel is OCD. I got that about him, but I never really got to know him, if that makes sense, Likewise with Ryan. I think that in part is due to the narration. I thought it was in third person, present tense, or it could be that the author narrates the story and it’s not actually told in either character’s POV. It’s hard to explain.
The story is slow to get going, with many pages given to the ominous appearance of donuts, and Daniel’s self-control. Once they go on their first date, things get interesting, and then bang it ends. I’m picking this series is going to be released in episodes. While the writing was solid, in this instance, I didn’t buy into the characters. It’s a must for me to want to know more about them.
I am in the minority of not loving this story, so please check out all the wonderful five star reviews. Better yet go grab a copy and see if this series is for you.
