Falling Under, Book 2
Synopsis: Amber Dolors knows better than to get involved with her boss. Devastatingly handsome in his sharp suits and sexy beyond belief, he possesses an air of command that fuels her darkest fantasies. But she’s worked too hard to get this job, and keeping it will lead to a brilliant future. She won’t cross that line—even if his way of giving orders and demanding her best performance gives her delicious warm shivers.
Alexander Knight prides himself on his integrity and self-discipline. After all, he hasn’t risen to the position he enjoys by indulging his whims over ambition. He also isn’t blind. He’s certainly noticed his sharp, young assistant is hot as hell. His self-imposed sexual hermitage doesn’t stop him from watching her. And endlessly fantasizing.
The day Alec’s cool reserve cracks and Amber catches a glimpse of something simmering beneath his apparent indifference is the day everything between them changes. Alec gives her what she’s been looking for sexually—as masterful in the bedroom as he is in the boardroom. He finds himself in the grip of an affair that tests even his boundaries, while Amber’s new role as willing student pushes them both past any consideration other than mutual longing.
Review: I enjoyed the first volume which put forward themes that we don’t usually find in litterature, including the role of women in the video game industry and its consequences. The erotic side was quite well done and light which is why I was curious to get into the second novel.
Unlike the previous volume, we have a rather classic pattern for an erotic BDSM book. Indeed, we find Amber, a girl looking for a man who will satisfy her SM fantasies as it’s not the case for now. The only Problem? The man she wants and who is older than her his also her boss and he is determined not to mix business with pleasure. Still, something is going to appear between them and our heroes will find themselves swept away by a story that will take them unawares.
I was a little less carried away by this novel than with the previous one I confess. Let me explain why … I’m not necessarily a big fan of erotic or BDSM but the first volume brought me something I did not expect with a very interesting context and a good plot. Here, it is a little different because the story revolves around Amber and her desire to develop a special relationship while she does not realize the consequences of certain actions. The story evolves on her relationship with Alexander and her initiation into SM. It’s true that I wanted more, a story behind that could take me, this added to the erotic part. It was an enjoyable and quick read but it still lacked of a stronger plot for me but I think the fans of this genre will appreciate the story and spend a great time.
