Synopsis: Eva Tramell is an assistant to Mark Garritty for Waters, Field and Leaman, a prominent advertising agency in the US, who finds herself working for Gideon Cross of Cross Industries. She remembers she has met him before they got to know each other in the boardroom, and since then he has felt a lustful longing for her. She feels she has been taken by surprise when she enters the Cross Industry lift and he gets in and tells her he wants to fuck her.
Story: Eva recounts how she felt to her roommate, Cary, and gets his take on things even though she hates “feeling like a vagina with legs.”
Cary acts amazed at Gideon being that coarse to her, but as a man, he really isn’t so surprised at the man’s response to a beautiful woman, even if it is his friend. Despite everything she has seen and heard from Gideon, Eva has the hots for him, and wonders what it would be like to have sex with a highly successful man such as him. He is just as interested in her, and asks her if she has a boyfriend behind the scenes – the reason for his asking is that he doesn’t want to share her body with anyone else, and who could blame him.
- Cary, he’s funny, witty and the kind of roommate everyone dreams of.
- Gideon Cross taking every opportunity to bed Eva – he’s a guy you’ll love to hate.
- Mark Garritty – works with Eva, they get on like a house on fire and hopes the new arrangement with Cross Industries works out – but little does he know that it’s all riding on Eva’s cooperation with Gideon.
Review: It’s along the same lines as Fifty Shades of Grey, but this takes place in and out of the company boardroom. It is a fun read, but not as good as some novels that have similar themes.

Sandra delights in immersing herself in anything period romance, says that supernatural romance novels have a tendency to grasp her in a way that some don’t, and thinks GLBT romances have that extra something and show a different way of how people of the same sex find love and try to keep it. She likes a wide variety of novels and is interested in reading stories, and in some cases, the shorter the better. Romance of all genres can keep her interest, but she finds that the Regency period is one of her firm favourites. Learn more about Sandra in her Reader Highlight.
