How do you ask the question, when you know the answer may change everything?
Sasha Brooks has been focused on one thing her entire life: her career. Newly promoted as the vice president in a New York advertising company, she has beauty, brains, and one hell of a fierce reputation. But she also has a secret that she keeps carefully guarded.
Brian Carpenter is finding out that managing his newest VP isn't without its challenges, but when it comes to Sasha, he'd expect nothing less.
His easygoing personality and Southern charm are the yang to her yin and the calm to her storm.
Over the last eight years of their friendship, the flirtations, innuendos, and chemistry have almost led to more, but Sasha has convinced herself they're better off just friends.
Until the moment she thinks he's with someone else.
Is she too late to admit her feelings?
Gathering the courage to ask the question, Sasha discovers she isn't the only one keeping secrets.
You think you know someone....
My Thoughts - Story
I’m highly impressed with this story and the author. The writing is flawless and Ms. Bondurant has such a gift for telling a story and getting the reader engrossed.
This book may have been told from Sasha’s POV but to give Brian the chance at the end of the story to express his feelings and the reasons why he did the things he did, just put the icing on the cake.
Kudos to you, Ms. Bondurant. I absolutely LOVED this story and was sucked in by the time I got to the 20% mark.
Yes, there were times I got pissed off at both of our characters and didn’t understand why they had to be so secretive about their feelings and their weaknesses, but I appreciated it by the time I got to the end of the book.
Now, also you have to realize when I first read that Brian had “dominant” rules and wanted Sasha to be submissive in the bedroom, I actually rolled my eyes because it’s been so long since I read books like this and normally find myself skimming over the sexy parts. Cause, really, how many different ways can a couple have sex?
The funny thing is though…I read EVERY SINGLE word…every sex scene – every dom/sub part and believe it or not, I found myself getting aroused.
Why? Because Ms. Bondurant may have made Brian want to be dominant in the bedroom but it was subtle and tastefully done. She didn’t force the sex on you but seamlessly entwined it through the story.
Sasha is VP of an advertising firm and friends with her boss, Brian for over eight years. She’s always had a “thing” for him but kept it locked up because of the work situation and an anxiety disorder she has had since her teenage years.
Dubbed as Sasha B. Fierce, everyone perceives her as being solid and perfect, but if they only knew the insecurites she deals with. Knowing this, Sasha fears that a relationship with Brian will only fail like all her others in the past.
It isn’t until Sasha gets wind of Brian meeting up with another woman for a booty call, that the green vines of jealousy take over and she lets her feelings known.
But, Brian has an agenda all his own. He wants Sasha to promise to submit in bed and follow his list of rules…as time goes on – it’s only inevitable that the two start to feel more than just a great FUCK.
