Art of Passion Book Three; Interconnected standalone
NOT SUITABLE FOR WORK
Lexie Bellamy can handle a boardroom. Relationships, however, are a minefield that always blow up. When a business trip takes her to Spain, Lexie knows she’ll have no problem closing the deal. But spending uninterrupted one-on-one time with her crazy-hot coworker might be more than she can take.
At the office, Lexie gets to call the shots. But this trip is the perfect opportunity for Dane Huntley to show his gorgeous boss how good it can feel when someone else takes charge…
Miles away from home, giving in to Dane’s naughty commands feels so easy. But when the trip is over, Lexie’s determined to go back to their professional relationship. Dane, though, has other ideas. He’ll have to prove that what they’ve found together is real… and he has no intention of letting go.
Jeanette Grey’s skilled writing and prose make NINE KINDS OF NAUGHTY what it is. And what it is, is an erotic story woven around two vivid characters who are magnetized to one another. Erotic because the emotions crawled out of the pages and gave substance to each scene–and it was about so much more than falling between the sheets.
The dynamic of a female boss and her male assistant at work, and the sub to her Dom outside of the office made this story fiery hot and irresistible. Dane and Lexie’s relationship spun in many different ways, had to take the form of many different things, but underneath it all was their soul-deep connection. With each character inhabiting two different sides of themselves, one for work and one for home, Grey perfectly created the dance between Lexie and Dane, and the dance between each side of their own selves. In-office romances are great, but I loved the added dimension of who they were outside of the workplace and how it added another layer to them as a couple.
I haven’t read the rest of the series, as this book stands on its own, but am very interested in backtracking in order to do so. Grey has a great storytelling style and characters that are poignant and real. NINE KINDS OF NAUGHTY explores the dynamics of control and carries us into a great love story at the same time–one that enraptures and gets your heart racing.
