Savannah was groomed from birth to take the reins of her father’s manufacturing empire. Her emotional armor is as tough as the steel used in her factories, and nobody is allowed past it. Business partner Matt realizes that the key to entry is to command her submission. Calling on the unique sensual talents of his four-man management team, he engineers an aggressive and erotic takeover, determined to rescue the woman he loves from the steel cage she’s manufactured around her heart. Masked and lost to the sensations the team arouses in her, Savannah is theirs, at least for this one night.

One night on Twitter I saw a tweet about this book and thought it sounded hot and kind of silly at the same time. When I found out it was by Joey W. Hill, the Mistress of Ceremonies at Authors After Dark in New Orleans, I decided to give it a try. It started off so strong, Matthew was strong and very alpha to Savannah’s characters. The passion flowed off of my Kindle and I seriously was looking at some third degree burns on my hands…then it just got plain silly. Yes, silly.

After some wrangling between Matthew and Savannah, Matthew gets Savannah all tied up with her bra. That was a turn on too, but then he gets her in even more restraints. The restraints were a custom made harness in the board room that could be lifted, lowered, turned around, made to go around the room and totally control the person hooked into it. Of course Matthew had it custom made for Savannah and this hostile take over. He even puts a mask on her that has blinders on it.

After he gets Savannah all strapped in, gagged and blindfolded, his tag team of management comes in to fulfill all of Savannah’s desires, desires she never knew she had. Here is how Matthew lays down the rules to his men.

“Rule number one, I won’t repeat. You heard it clearly enough before and she’s not ready to hear it right now.”

“You can play with her in as many and varied ways as you wish that will give her pleasure, but you can’t fuck her pussy. Understood? And if you touch her, you have to make her come. For each time you make her come, you get an extra percent share in this company, of my own stock. The man who makes her come the fastest tonight, from the time of the initial touch, will get a five percent share.”

From this point on the story goes down hill fast. It becomes a story of the fantasy of five men giving one woman incredible pleasure, but it just didn’t seem based on anything in reality that I could believe. I am going to get a little graphic here, but no where near as graphic as this book gets. First up is Lucas with lots of lip work on her clit. He gives her the first orgasm, but he isn’t in any hurry to get the fastest incentive. Then comes Jon with a sex toy prototype he created just for her. She pretty much passes out afterwards. Then Ben does something to her ass while Peter loved on her breasts. They all admit they love her but know she is made for Matthew.

It devolves down to Matthew needing to break down her walls so he can get to her heart because she has owned his heart for years.

While nothing was truly forced, or I hope it wasn’t, on Savannah, it felt like she had no choice. Then it moved onto her exploring what she wanted. It became truly unbelievable that this hot woman was a 35 year old virgin, who needed to be forced into breaking down the walls and embracing her inner sexual being.

So while I wanted to really enjoy this book, it was more silly than erotic. I don’t think I will be continuing this series but trying out one of her other books before I attend Authors After Dark in August.

Shari is the Delighted Reader. Married to her Prince Charming and mother to two Princesses and one Prince. When she is not slaving away as Cinderella she loves to get lost in the pages of a good book. Never without a reading device and a few good paperback books, because she never knows when she might get 5 minutes to read!

    Well when you put it that way— (-;

    I have not read this series, but many people swear by it. Reading your description does make it sound a bit unbelievable. Honestly, I am always turned off by the ‘dominate her for her own good’ kinds of stories because as you say, is it really consent?

    I do have the first of her vampire queen books and look forward to the read.

    Thanks for sharing your review!
