Publisher's Summary

The bar Sophia Pearce is in doesn't look like much. The wine is bad and the decor worse. But when a sudden attack of curiosity leads her to sneak past security and into the back room, she discovers something unimaginable. The most lavish party she's ever laid eyes on, in the most unlikely of places. But that's nothing compared to what comes next, to the man she meets back there. Sebastian Lock. Gorgeous, commanding, and radiating charm, he is exactly the sort of silver-tongued rake Sophia has sworn to avoid. Unfortunately, he doesn't care much for her promises. Every instinct tells her to run, but the chemistry between them is as inescapable as gravity. Soon, he's opening her eyes to a whole new world of pleasures, pleasures she never thought she'd enjoy.
There's just one problem. Sebastian is more than he seems. Between the famous company he keeps and the almost paranoid secrecy of his employers, he's a puzzle Sophia can't quite solve, and his insistence on keeping things casual forces her to confront the demons of her past.
Can she learn to trust again? Or will Sebastian's privacy tear them apart?

Two narrators work better...

But the story was light and easy after reading something heavy. It was a fun little read. Not a heart stopping must read book; but good.

Short, but Definitely Sexy

Feisty, self-assured, corporate lawyer Sophia meets magnetic, mysterious Sebastian when she breaks into a secret party his 'company' is hosting. He knows she's out of place yet he wants to know more. When he catches her hidding in his office spying on him before she runs off, he's relentless to have her. All he can offer is casual, but she wants more. He wants her to submit to his dominance, but she's not quite sure. Sophia quickly finds out that he's worth the trouble.

Sophia struggles to trust that Sebastian isn't going to hurt her like every other man she's dated. Will he hurt her? Can she give him a chance to prove he won't?

This novella is a quick read, but certainly very steamy. It leaves the reader wanting more and on to reading book 2.
