I’ve always been a control freak. But he makes me crave submission…

Working for a hotel heiress and social media influencer may not be my dream job, but at least it allows me time to do what I really love—take photographs. Pretty good for a wholesome farm girl from Kansas trying to make it in Boston. Life may not be easy working for a diva, but at least I know what to expect.

Until blue-collar billionaire Braden Black strides into the office. He’s beyond handsome and sexy, but also domineering with a definite hard edge. I’m not sure why he’s interested in me, but within a few weeks, he’s showing me a world I never knew existed.

He’s opened up a side of me I can only face in the dark, and it’s quickly becoming an obsession. How can I give up something this addictive—even if his secrets could ultimately destroy me?
MY feelings
Why in 2020 was this book so heavily weighed down with Fifty Shades feels? Can we not come up with anything other than billionaires with BDSM obsessions and a secret that they have? Just in case that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll find it here.

I didn’t really find that the characters stood out or had this big connection. Sexually? Yeah, their chemistry was pretty good. However, in their interactions outside of sex there was nothing really there. We don’t even really find out anything about Braden so I know that Skye doesn’t know him. Let alone say she’s in love with him.

Besides that, we go through the book with all of the hush hush between what happened with Braden and Addison. We don’t know anything about this man besides the snippets that he fed to Skye like leftovers. I saw that there is a book that’s written in his POV, I might give that a try just to see if that helps give Braden some character.

Overall, It’s just an updated version of FSOG. The sex scenes are hot, but no character development.
