More filters. Sort order. I got through this one quickly, but I didn't enjoy what I read. May and Win didn't seem to really like each other very much. I didn't care for the way their relationship progressed and unfolded. The story just didn't feel very cohesive to me.
There are lots of nit picky things that I didn't enjoy, so I'm just going to chalk this one up as not for me. Jul 18, Janna rated it it was ok. I wondered constantly about the reasons why they both acted as they did.
In my opinion neither Win nor May were convincing as a Dom, or as a sub for that matter. On the other hand, the reason why Win starts going to the club stays in the dark too. It seems odd that he goes there to get dominated since he has a history of being a Dom. Additionally the characters came across as mean and unsympathetic.
Not only when they play the dominant part, also in the non-sexual scenes. For example, Winston apparently lusted after May for years, yet he treated her badly at work without ever showing her his feelings or personal interest. May on the other hand acts like a brat and unprofessionally, e. I need to at least like the protags and preferably understand why they behave like they behave.
Besides all that, the plot felt rather unlikely and had many holes in it, which made the protags seem inconsistent.
The Tempting of America: The Political Seduction of the Law
Getting through a list of erotic scenes. For me it was too focused on the sexual components. I guess it has something to do with the expectations you have, and yours might be different from mine. Sep 16, Jane Stewart rated it did not like it Shelves: erotic-african-american-interracial , african-american. I did not like the characters or the plot. The story was choppy and merely a backdrop for a lot of erotic sex scenes. There is rear door activity. The couple is interracial: black woman, white man. On page 16, I was angry at employee May. Her boss gave her specific instructions as to what to write in a note to someone.
S I did not like the characters or the plot. She was angry with her boss, ignored his words and wrote and sent an entirely different note. I was so angry at her dishonesty and lack of work ethic I wanted to stop reading at that point.
I need to have some sort of sympathy or positive feeling for my heroine. Her boss Win was unlikeable as well. He secretly lusted after May for four years. During that time, he never showed her any kindness, courtesy or respect. He did not give her raises and did not tell Human Resources that she completed her Bachelors Degree. He wanted to keep her working for him and not be promoted. May gets a part-time job in a sex club where she learns to be a Dominatrix. Win is her client at the club where she ties him up, humiliates him, and causes pain.
After they recognize each other, they agree that during the day at the office, Win will be the Dominant and make her do things there as a Submissive. Both of these locations are excuses for them to continue to be mean to each other, while at the same time they lust for each other. This is not a romance novel. There is no caring, affection or love. The characters have no vulnerability. May is either angry or leaving in avoidance. This is not a story being told.
This was an ineffective attempt to make May likeable and give her an excuse for the part-time job in the club. Courtney was a successful cop, known for putting away bad guys. She arrests May and Win, keeps them in jail overnight without a phone call and does not read them their Miranda rights. Of course they get off. Toward the end Madam Z tells Win that she and he had a bondage relationship years ago and he rejected her when she wanted a relationship. There was nothing else going on between them to require this as an explanation for something.
It was a weird side bar. DATA: Story length: pages. Number of sex scenes: Total number of sex scene pages: Setting: current day Virginia Beach and Norfolk, Virginia.

Corporate Infidelity, Downsizing, Seduction, and Toxic Leadership.
The biggest conflict is between May and Winston. Bridget allows the story to unfold from the rough beginning of their relationship to the surprising turn of events. Corporate Seduction is set in present day Norfolk, Virginia. There was enough description to paint a picture that seems real. The story develops to show the change in both characters and the dialogue is entertaining.
You can sense how the characters feel about each other and the author is able to use the dialogue to further move the story along. The story is told in third person and when the point-of-view switches from the main character to the next, there is no confusion. The author is able to give the reader an opportunity to feel what the characters were going through. This erotic tale does not hide behind closed bedroom doors but is for readers who are comfortable with the raw descriptions of sensual pleasure. Corporate Seduction is easy to read, humorous, lighthearted and quite enjoyable but the reader may have to sit in an air conditioned room to keep the body cool while reading this book.

Plus, I can't count the number of women at my office I've had reading her books! It also let me in on a little known side of myself, hint-hint, nudge-nudge!
Jan 23, Cherie rated it it was amazing. This review was originally written for Hearts on Fire Reviews and can also be found there. This book had the potential to be great. This inevitably constitutes a threat to male consensus and framing of appropriate action. Therefore, by virtue of their mere presence, women threaten the deconstruction of commitment.
