He’s gonna have to beg for it…
Corinne was young once. She did everything—girls, boys, drugs, toys—and did it in high funky fashion. Reese wasn’t her first lover, but he was the first to submit to her. For a while they had something special, but it ended badly.
She’s a little older now. And the wealthy businessman who just bought the company she works for bears little resemblance to that boy. He’s commanding, domineering, and seems hell-bent on pushing her past her limits.
In a flash of anger, she falls back into their old pattern—and Reese falls right in with her. Before she knows it, she’s testing him. Then tasting him. But she can’t afford to get involved again. Her life is complicated enough without throwing in a slew of kink.
Now if only Reese would stop making her feel like the goddess she used to be…and showing her who’s been the boss all along. Then…and now.
Warning: Contains thousand-dollar, custom-tailored business suits, fuzzy green boots, goth eyeliner, and fishnet sleeves. We’ll let you discover who wears what.
Wow! I was so pleasantly surprised by this book! It was my first from this author, Megan Hart. It’s told from our heroine Corrine’s perspective in a dual timeline setup, moving back and forth from the past to the present. As a narrative device, I find this can be a little jarring if it’s not handled skillfully but I didn’t find myself feeling taken out of the story by having to juggle the timeline in my head at all with this book.
Corrine and Reese meet when she’s struggling to put herself through school working at a local diner where Reese and his college buddies sometimes hang out late at night. She’s a little older and a little wiser than he is – he’s green and a little naive. Corrine’s initial dominance over Reese probably stems largely from this, but she finds it grows into something stronger. Their relationship ultimately fails and they both move on with their lives, only to find themselves thrust back together later in life. This was a story of young love that didn’t have the room it needed to really flourish the first time around and knowing that the second time around, your decisions can’t be so cavalier.
This is not a femdom story, as it were, although Corrine takes a dominant role sexually with Reese and she and Reese both prefer it that way. I appreciated the author switching up the normal gender stereotypes in this book and how she presented it as an approachable, not-scary lifestyle. If you typically read stories with dominant men, I urge you to give this one a try. I think you’ll find Reese’s brand of worship a great change of pace!
