A white hot Standalone novella from USA Today Bestseller Lili Valente
“Bend over and lift your skirt. I’m going to show you what it’s like to spend Christmas on the naughty list…”
Let’s get one thing straight–I’m not your usual bad boy billionaire. I’m actually a nice guy. A very nice guy who also enjoys turning a woman over my knee and spanking her ass until she begs for mercy–AKA a good, hard, hold-her-down-and-teach-her-who’s-boss f*ck.
I’m a gentleman in the boardroom and a Dominant in the bedroom. I’ve also been secretly in love with my sweet, sexy, too-innocent-for-her-own-good executive assistant, Jane, for the better part of two years.
But like I said, I’m a gentleman. Any woman on my staff is strictly off limits.
Until the night I’m snowed in at the office with Jane…
The same night I discover she’s a submissive looking for a teacher…
The night I decide to make her mine…
“Are you ready to be possessed? If so, get on your knees, beautiful. The game is about to begin. Tonight, you’re mine.”
WARNING: This red-hot holiday read contains spanking, dirty talk, and a Dominant alpha male who will melt your panties off–he doesn’t care how cold it is outside. Hotness level: -five hot toddies, four roaring fires, three turtleneck sweaters, two chestnuts roasting and a spanking with a switch from that old pear tree.
Snowed in at the office would have seemed a nightmare if Jane hadn’t got a message that would change her world. She is about to get a crash course in being a submissive by the man of her dreams – who just so happens to be her boss. Whether she can turn dream into reality is something else entirely.
Even though I would have liked the story to be a bit longer and shown more of the back-story I did love how it started with Tens letter to Jane. You could almost imagine her heart rate increasing the more she read. Also with how much the idea of him becoming her Dom (if only for a night) was turning her on. Jane made the mistake – or maybe not so much mistake – of looking for a Dom to teach her about the lifestyle using her works email address. Now she just so happens to work for a tech god who monitors certain aspects of work colleagues’ emails, red flagging certain ones. Good thing too really as the background check he does on the guy/Dom she had been flirting with for the past few weeks was very bad news. Now she may be feeling a little embarrassed that Ten found her emails but I do think that on some level she hoped he would so he could bring her up on them. She had no idea he was into the world she had started to fantasize about but now she does she’s not sure how to react. You see she does want him, but for more than one night. Can she get what she really wants on this snowy winters night?
Ten has always been a Dom and from the moment he saw Jane he wanted her, under him, over him, in his office, pretty much everywhere he could think of. But from looking at her he thought she was too innocent and he didn’t want to turn her into something she wasn’t. So you can imagine his shock and delight when he came across her emails. When both of them are snowed in at the office he gives her an ultimatum. He can teach her the ways of being a sub in a safe environment where she will be his until the morning after – her job never coming into question – or she can lock herself in the staffroom where he will leave her be and never mention it again. When he returns to his office to see her kneeling waiting for him he can’t believe his luck. This night just turned into something hot enough to melt the snow outside! Well that is if they can get out of their heads and tell the other how they really feel. Neither wants it to be a onetime wonder but its not until Jane makes a rash decision putting herself at risk that they finally open up about it. When they do though, oh my, you may need to fan yourself down with how they heat things up. To begin with Jane wasn’t sure if she really wanted to be part of the Dom/sub world but one night with Ten sure makes her see the perks of it. Bet their both glad the snow came down as hard as it did as it gave them the means to be locked in somewhere together. Right where they’ve both wanted to be. He’s the boss in the office and the bedroom but Jane wouldn’t have it any other way.
Jane’s inner desires are soon to be awakened by the only man who will ever truly love, and want, her as much as she desires. Seems our girl Jane takes to being a submissive like a duck to water. Spank you very much! Hot, hot, hotter – well with the snow outside you need to find something to do to warm up. Can’t believe neither realised how the other felt though – come on you both love each other, spit it out already! Another great read by Lili Valente can’t wait to check out the rest.
