Blurb: He calls me perfect. His flawless pet. His good girl.
Broken down and wounded by my emotionally neglectful ex, I wanted someone to tell me I was good enough.
Then, I stumbled into a new job with a boss who brings me to my knees—literally. He has me do things a real secretary would never do.
Emerson Grant tells me I’m more than just good enough. I’m worthy of his praise.
There are a million reasons why I should stay away. The owner of the Salacious Players’ Club is not just my new boss, he’s twice my age.
And my ex-boyfriend’s father.
With him, I am treasured. I am adored. I am his. I’m a good girl, but I’m falling for the wrong man.
Emerson Grant knows what he wants—
And he wants me.
So how far will I go to hear his approval?
This was such a sweet forbidden romance
I was expecting much more kink than sweetness but I was happy with this story. It was a balm to my heart! Charlie and her boyfriend Beau were broken up before she met Beau’s estranged father Emerson. There was an attraction immediately but nothing could come of it since Charlie is 21 and Emerson is 40 years old. Besides, Emerson is her ex’s father so all thoughts just have to remain a fantasy…or does it is?
I like that the relationship wasn’t salacious, and the power dynamic felt very light. I dare say that this relationship felt like two lonely people connecting on a deep level. Their chemistry was good but the mental and emotional connection put this story on another level for me. I felt happy for Charlie that Emerson really listened and observed her because he was a kind, considerate and protective man. This story was a win for me.
