****ADULT 18+ ONLY****
Ben is the last unattached member of the five-man executive team of K&A Associates. The other four, all Masters, have found the submissive of their dreams. That’s fine. The sharp-edged lawyer knows he’s the most hardcore of all of them, with extreme tastes as a Master he satisfies physically through experienced club submissives. He doesn’t really need anything more than that.
Marcie has loved Ben since she was sixteen. He’s never behaved as anything more than a protective big brother, a family friend. But now she’s twenty three and starting her career as a corporate investigator. She may be a blood-and-bone deep submissive, but she won’t hesitate to use her aggressive talents to prove she’s meant to be his. With a Master as tough as Ben, she’ll have to take whatever measures are needed—even if her deepest desire isn’t a hostile takeover of his heart, but an unconditional surrender to it.
Reader Advisory: Marcie’s sexual journey contains a group scene of female/female sexual exploration. The Masters also share her in a brief group scene.
I must admit after reading Fifty Shades and Bared to You, I thought I was pretty good with BDSM books. Well, how wrong was I? This book takes you deep into the world of BDSM. I myself don't participate, but I'm sure it could go deeper. The descriptions are wonderful. The movie for this book was playing in my head as I was reading. At first, I was a little put off by the level of BDSM Hill shows, but I fell in love with the characters. And I was a goner. I didn't read the first four books, but I am dying to go back and read them. Yes, it gets dark, (well, dark for me) but the story is told beautifully. There are some intense sessions with caning, f/f group scene, she is shared with four other men, and various instruments are used. But don't let that fool you. There is also a great love story! Hostile Takeover pushed my comfort levels and I loved it.
I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley.
