Series: Executive Toy #1
To stay alive, Lindsay has always relied on her looks and her wits. It’s not always enough, and underneath her carefully polished exterior is a desperate woman who will do anything to survive.
When she’s called to account for her misuse of the company credit card, she hopes to flirt her way out of trouble. Instead she finds herself faced with a gorgeous stranger who is immune to her manipulation, and she’s shocked by the punishment he deals out.
No one in the office can tell her who the stranger is, and when she encounters him again weeks later, things take another unexpected turn… times three. Three handsome, rich businessmen. In their arms, she almost feels safe.
But she knows the truth: safe is an illusion, and staying alive is all that matters.
What we have here is a style of series that our author Ms. Peitsche does best. We get a leading lady that has an interesting back story that we won’t know the gist of for a while and many many successful sexy men that are going to intertwine themselves into her life. In the case of past series that i’ve read, there’s always at least 1 man who hates her, one who’s ambiguous and one that really wants to protect and coddle her. That’s what we have here.
Hawthorne, the first man that Lindsey meets is the one that hates her, and the one that seems like he’s really the Alpha among this pack. He’s not necessarily thrilled with the way that things are going but i think that he’s going to be the one to keep it all together.
Romeo (lovely name no?) is the one that is a bit ambiguous at times, he’s attracted to her of course and finds her value but he’s not necessarily leaning in any one direction.
Slade – he’s the interesting one – he definitely appreciates what she has to offer, wants to protect her and actually makes Lindsey feel safe when we’re not sure what she needs to keep running from.
Throughout this story, we get a few scenes that really makes you wonder how much one girl can take from multiple partners at the same time, and these gentlemen push her to her limits on several occasions. There are hints of what Lindsey is running from – something that has to do with her Grandfather – but to what extent – that will hopefully unfold in the coming installments.
So, between you and me, i’m really interested to see where this relationship goes. They offer her a better opportunity for work as a way to stay with them as well as to repay her debt and i think that we’ll see if that’s a good idea or not. I think that we will be left with some great tension since that’s always the case with this author, and you won’t be left wanting heat and passion and chemistry either since there’s something to be said about how Ms. Peitsche weaves a story that includes so many partners without crossing over any hard limits. so….onto the next i suppose and enjoy!
