Reviewed By: Roberta

Recession-stressed, out-of-work, recently evicted CEO Morgan James needs a job and has absolutely no chance of getting one, since Wall Street uses her as their scapegoat when the market crashes.

Financial mogul Donathon Cannon has more personal reasons to hate her but is more than willing to give her a job – if she wins the position by competing in a reality tv show for a chance to be his personal assistant.

But his plan come tumbling down when he realizes they are more alike than he’d ever want to admit. And when he decides to punish her in private, he'll have to keep his dominant streak - and his heart - from crossing the line.

First, let me say this story will definitely push your buttons and boundaries. The two main characters, Morgan and Donathon, will have you questioning the choices and the actions they take. Donathon not only wants to punish Morgan for her past mistakes but humiliate her. He is arrogant, controlling, condescending, and yet shows signs of compassion for the things he makes Morgan do. What got me was the way Morgan allowed herself to be dominated.

There are several secondary characters. The one who sticks out the most is Sierra. She is a true friend for Morgan to lean on.

There are certain scenes some people might find objectionable. Please understand once you get to the end of the story, Morgan and Donathons' actions will become clear or at least clearer. Reading this story made me question some of the things I sound taboo. Which in my mind, this makes it an exceptional book to read.

I would definitely like to read more of Roxy Harte's work and see what other boundaries she will have me questioning. Please pick up this book, you won't be disappointed.

  1. Thank you for such a wonderful review, Roberta. I'm glad I challenged you to question what is and isn't taboo:) I was also glad that you were able to see Donathon's compassion beneath his rough exterior.

    I'd be glad to have you review any of my future works.
