Hailed by Stacey Kennedy as “an emotional, seductive story,” this deeply sensual novel of pleasure and persuasion revolves around a high-stakes business deal in which the rules of negotiation are defined by desire.
Through grace, talent, and hard work, personal concierge Sophie Ashton has turned international corporate warfare into an art. But when she meets her new client, a suave CEO who radiates masculine heat, she knows this is no ordinary job. With a past hurt fresh in her heart, Sophie tries to keep her professional relationships exactly that: professional. But Xavier Quinn is a man who knows how to get what he wants, and soon Sophie is tempted into his wicked dance of seduction.
Xavier needs Sophie’s charm and finesse to land a coveted contract with a Japanese tech mogul, yet he’s even more intrigued by her as a woman. He sees Sophie’s darkly sensual nature and can sense her passion. He wants to dominate her, more than he’s ever wanted anything before. He’ll make her submit, though he can’t give her his heart, not after the tragic death of his last sub. Xavier assures himself he can keep his distance from Sophie . . . but can he? He’s used to taking risks in work and in life, but the stakes have never been higher. Because the game he plays with Sophie will bind them together—or destroy them both.

Thoughly enjoyed this quick paced read that was steamy and entertaining. Amazing character development in Sophie and Xavier as well as a very engaging story. Written in dual POV which I love. The story captured my attention and held it though out this story.
Finding love again, Sophie has been slow to let her walls down after having her ex-boyfriend leave her because his family would not approve of her since she was American and he was Japanese. But sparks fly between Sophie and Xavier and there are some sexy scenes that are delicious.
Looking forward to the next in this series. Hoping for an update of Sophie and Xavier. If you are looking for a fast paced entertaining story with some delicious heat this is the story for you.

Perfect escape read
This is the first book by Ms Madison I have read and I can honestly say I am now a huge fan...I will now need to read her other books as I truly enjoy her style.
This book is a wonderfully delightful romp between two perfectly matched characters...they have such good chemistry together and just really work to make this the type of story you would enjoy reading time and again because you'll get something different from it each time...I highly recommend it to anyone who just wants to escape into the world of characters that will make you smile and laugh...and perhaps even think a bit!
This book was provided by Netgalley for my honest review.
Overall this was an enjoyable story with very likeable characters &I really loved their happy ending
Sophie Ashton works as a concierge in Boston for the rich and famous and it's a long way from the foster care life that she grew up in. It's been two years since her ex-boyfriend, Sato, broke her heart and she has vowed to never start something up with another client. Well in walks Xavier Quinn....a billionaire who owns his own company and wants Sophie to devote the next month to only working for him while he is in Boston. A very large check convinces Sophie to do this. As Xavier and Sophie spend more time together, it is very obvious that they both have strong ties to each other. Sophie is hesitant to start anything after what happened with Sato, but she eventually gives in.
I loved the push and pull these two went through. Xavier is used to getting everything he wants and he decided he wanted Sophie. I really enjoyed both of these characters and their back stories. It was enjoyable learning about the Japanese culture and how they are so different with the way they do things. I really enjoyed Sophie's friends. They seemed like a really colorful bunch. I liked the part with Xavier's family but I wish there would have been more about them in the story. It seemed like there was a lot of missing back story.
Overall this was an enjoyable story with very likeable characters and I really loved their happy ending!
