Sarah doesn’t believe in anything but the here and now. Superstition and the paranormal means nothing to her, which is why she finds it strange that ever since her boss stared wearing a particular tie clip holding a reflective stone, she can’t help but wonder how to make his life more pleasurable.
With so many people to manage, the dashing Mr. Kane has little reason to talk to one of his secretaries, until her beauty turns his head at the office. He considers it a perfect opportunity to show her something she’s never seen before and soon notices how particularly susceptible she is to his influence.
Indulge in this steamy read about a powerful boss and naïve secretary, and discover what it is about him that makes her want to obey his every need.

I liked the flow of this one, had a good pace to it. Sarah starts out thinking that she is nothing more than invisible at the work place, especially with men, although that might be more that she is hiding herself rather than them not noticing her. When they do it shocks her. So I love her reaction when Mr Kane first comes up to her desk. Just happens to be when she is making a paperclip fort – customer calls can get annoying so you need a distraction every now and then. She is drawn to Mr Kane, from his strong persona that he exudes, but also soon finds him more alluring after noticing his tie clip. Something he likes to make sure is in front of her face when talking to her.
The first meeting between them you are not quite sure whether anything happened but more given the idea that it might have. Or it could have been subtler to start with by asking her to wear something new and a bit more revealing the next day – which she does – just to test if it works. It’s the second meeting that things all start to heat up – I wonder if he has soundproof walls because I doubt either of them was quiet!
Love the little paranormal twist with the gem that has been thrown into the mix. Seems that this magic gem almost puts people in a trance like state to become more susceptible to suggestions. Mr Kane’s main suggestion being to get her naked. It seems that he has become drawn to her also but needed a little help to speed things up. Though from how she acts around him when she doesn’t see the tie clip I’m thinking he could have had her anyway, this just sped things up. As soon as they are in each other’s company you can almost feel the hunger coming off them.
It seems to be an easy cross over for Sarah to call him Mr Kane and then Sir. It seems this might not have been something he had first thought about, but soon found he liked it that much better when she used it. Almost like creating a Dom/Sub relationship between them, as he clearly wants to take care of her. He obviously wants to keep her, which is something she is very glad about.
You can see that a connection has been created between them and holds up even when the tie clip can’t be seen. Would be interesting to see them down the road to see if he still uses it to his advantage or whether he suggests she have a go playing with it to.
