Summary:

In this sizzling novel from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author C. J. Ellisson, sparks fly when Heather Pierce and Tony Carmine meet at a speed dating event. Contains mature themes.

Heather Pierce is done being a wallflower, both personally and professionally. Desperate to live a different life for one night, she attends a speed dating event. Maybe here, anonymous unless she chooses otherwise, she can become someone new. When a man way out of her league sits across from her, Heather gathers her courage and takes charge of what she wants, secretly fearing he won't desire the real person she's desperate to hide.

Top acquisitions officer and international playboy Tony Carmine is about to close the biggest deal of his career. But then he meets Heather at a speed dating event . . . and discovers losing control may be exactly what he needs. Her blossoming sensuality occupies his every thought, consuming him with the need to possess the most intriguing lover he's ever encountered-until he walks into the boardroom and sees Heather on the other side of the negotiating table.

    Hot and steamy, just the way I like it. Would like to have another book like this one.

    This book started out really odd for me. The heroine spent a large part of this story pretending to be someone she wasn’t. She analyzed every word and action toward the hero, not as something she would say but as something she thought he wanted to hear. I found that strange. It made it difficult to gauge what kind of person she was. Even her relationship with her best friend felt off to me. They’d have a simple conversation and things would end up tense. Because of her behavior, I really thought I’d end up hating this book, but I didn’t. It turned around and I finally understood why the author wrote it this way. It was unusual, but in the end it worked. Heather is a person who is walked over constantly. All her relationships end poorly because she allows the men to treat her badly. When she goes to a speed dating event she decides that since no one knows her she can be anyone she wants. She meets Tony who is an executive that is sick of having to always be in control. Suddenly, she has an epiphany and orders Tony to do some very naughty things. And he obeys. Things escalate from there. Heather slowly grows into this pseudo dominatrix role and finds it empowering. She soon begins to wonder if this isn’t just some false personality she’s taken on or rather something that has been inside her the whole time. Something she has suppressed. I started to understand that by pretending to be something she wasn’t she was inadvertently finding herself. The same was true for Tony. He was used to being in control all the time. He is a workaholic who cherishes nothing as much as his next deal. He goes through a small journey of self-discovery as well. By the end everything seemed to level out for the two. There are some big role reversals and their relationship balances nicely. I was happy with the way the story finished. Overall, I think it’s a unique story. For readers who enjoy a little light BDSM, I think you’ll enjoy this book.
