Blurb:

They’re a match made in the dungeon…until their secret gets out.

Bored senseless in a meeting, architectural modeler Jon McNeill amuses himself with a kinky dating app on his phone. Then the app matches him with another user…who’s six feet away. Suddenly Jon finds himself on the same page as someone way above his pay grade: millionaire property developer Rick Pierce. His firm’s biggest—and hottest—client.

The app isn’t kidding either. They’re a perfect match. Jon’s a Dom, Rick’s a sub, and bondage is their thing. Both guys are well into their forties, know their way around the bedroom, and definitely appreciate a good suit. And the best part? They’re a match outside the bedroom too.

But office relationships aren’t easy to keep a secret. When the truth comes out, Jon is certain he’s about to get fired. Instead, his bosses throw him a curve ball—an ultimatum that puts both his job and his relationship in jeopardy.

Warning: Contains literal and figurative sex machines, blindfolds, a sub being punished during a business meeting, enough rope to tangle up a millionaire, and a Golden Girls marathon.

I’m not going to lie – this blurb had me at “Golden Girls marathon”. MM GoldenGirls

I loved that for once there was open, honest communication. COMMUNICATION, PEOPLE!! Can I get a hallelujah?
Hallelujah

I LOVED that Jon and Rick openly talked to one another, they checked in with one another, they shored each other up and took care of each other. It wasn’t all kink all the time. Though there was definitely kink…
Golden Girls - jump

I was absolutely entranced with the story and – even when I was raging uncontrollably at the bastards Jon works for –

Golden Girls - Unbelievable

Golden Girls - Go to Hell

L.A. Witt created characters I cared about. To be honest, situations and things that would have normally made me crazy were swept away in the love I had for Jon and Rick. There were so many work situations with Jon that I totally related to: the constant meetings interfering with your deadlines, the inappropriate but hysterical banter with co-workers…
Golden Girls - Rose nodding approval

I loved that Jon and Rick were in their forties and acted like it. I loved that the characters were highly attracted and wanted each other, but grew into their relationship. I just loved this story…I would totally recommend!

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I’m in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.
