Cinderella meets FiftyShades. An erotic tale of love and lust in the office.
Kali goes to a masquerade party dressed as a sexy sub. She shouldn’t let her friend talk her into it, but behind the anonymity of the mask, Kali’s inhibitions fade away.
Ryan Blair has wanted Kali from the first moment she started working for him six months ago. So when he sees a stunning stranger in a mask and sub costume who could easily pass for Kali, he decides to play out the fantasy of mastering his sexy little secretary. Maybe that will alleviate his constant yearning for her.
When her wealthy, masterful boss takes Kali to the heights of ecstasy, not even knowing it’s her, things start to spin out of control. When Ryan figures out that she was his Cinderella sub, their days in the office become a roller coaster of passionate, mind-blowing sexual pleasure. But Kali quickly realizes that all there will ever be between them is sex and she needs so much more than that.
Should she walk away now before the pain of losing him becomes too much?
I’ve clearly forgotten about this series and it’s a shame cause i think that one thing that Ms Carew does well is give us these short stories that pack a punch of anxiety, naughtiness and heat all with a bit of romance at the end if it calls for it.
In this 2nd book in the series we meet Kali who is really good friends with Serena from the first book and the secretary for Mr Blair – a man who she finds to be unbelievably sexy. Kali and Serena are going to a costume party dressed to cause trouble and upon arriving, Kali finds that it’s not just a random costume party, but one where all the executives of their company are in attendance which makes it that much dicier. especially since Ryan Blair in there and well, she’s definitely got an attraction to him.
This quick novella takes us on a whirlwind of a few days with these 2 – where starting from the party their chemistry explodes, of course though Kali is wearing a mask so Ryan doesn’t know that it’s her although he fantasizes that it is her because of course it works out that he’s also got a crush on her. From then on, you know that their work relationship will be complicated as Kali knows what she did but Ryan didn’t.
If that weren’t enough, once the truth is revealed, they do take things up a notch and create a work sex thing – where you know someone’s either going to get into trouble or someone’s going to get their heart broken. So it’s really a question of which will happen and who’s going to get the axe dropped.
The nice thing with these shorter installments is that you have a quick build and then a quick resolution. While i think that the ending was a bit abrupt and likely far fetched in reality, i’m willing to go with it cause it’s what you would always want to see happen. So on that note, i guess i’m off to track down #3 since apparently i’ve missed the boat on this series for a bit.
