My Review

Megan is an assistant at a finance firm. She goes out to one of her local hang outs with her friend and sees the CEO of her company there. He happens to be with a mob boss and Megan wonders if the rumors about him being mob-connected are true. She heads out, hoping that her boss doesn't spot her. Megan works late one evening and gets a call from the CEO, Christopher. He tells her to see him in her office and he accuses her of leaking a story to the press about his mob connection. Of course, Megan had nothing to do with "said story" and she tells that to Christopher. One thing leads to another and they have a steamy, passionate romp right there in his office.

Megan was telling the truth when she said she didn't leak the story about his mob connections, but that didn't stop her from doing some digging to write a new piece on the allegations. While working on the piece, she gets a text from Christopher. He comes by her apartment and they have another hot sex session. After Christopher leaves, she realizes that he saw her article on him and he deleted the entire content.

I wont go any further considering it is a short story.

I was really excited when I was contacted to review this story. I'm a huge fan of Cosmopolitan magazine and my favorite part is the stories in the back of the magazine. I read the first few chapters of this one a few months ago, but my TBR list is massive and I simply forgot to follow up on it. I have never read Fifty Shades of Grey, but I can see where there would be some similarities. Christopher is very dominant when it comes to the sex scenes in the book. He tells Megan how he wants it, and it's frickin' hot! The book was also a bit of a thriller. I didn't know what to expect and I was a bit shocked with the outcome. I enjoyed this the first time around and I am stoked to have finished it. If you want a quick, sexy read, this book is definitely worth it!
