From the blurb:
Lord Grayson Holloway goes after what he wants—be it in the law office on his clients’ behalf or in the bedchamber. His new position as partner puts him closer to achieving his goal of becoming the most successful solicitor in London. There’s just one problem—his new secretary. Broad of shoulder yet mild of manner, Edward tempts Gray like no other. Yet the young man barely notices him.
Edward Fenton tries to be a good secretary, but being in Lord Grayson’s hard, commanding presence rouses Edward’s most forbidden desires. Wicked, naughty desires no gentleman should consider giving in to, let alone with his new employer.
Gray is more than willing to mix business with pleasure. But convincing Edward to take a chance on a future with him? That might be the most challenging case Gray has ever taken on.
I liked this little Ava March novella, which worked for me even though I jumped into this series at book 3.
I love that I always know what I'm going to get with an Ava March story. Her stuff is shamelessly kinky, really well written, and set in a historical time period. I love this author's consistency, and I've really come to rely on it when I pick up an Ava March book.
This book had so much going for it: we get a virgin (!!!), some spanking, and a bunch of dirty talking. I was a happy lady with the sex, that's for sure! However, the emotional connection between Edward and Gray... yeah, that didn't quite gel for me. I'm not sure if it's because I joined the series at book 3 (though I thought that it worked well as a stand-alone), but I think I needed more time for the feelings to develop.
All in all, this was another lovely, hot romance from the queen of smutty historicals, Ava March. I think most fans of hers will be very pleased with this one.
