“You’ll either be the death of me or my salvation.”
I don’t do romance. I possess. I use. And when I get bored, I discard. I’m not the good guy. Life stomped all the goodness out of me years ago. Now I’ll scheme and manipulate to get what I want.
What Do I Want?
He walks into my office with a confidence that whets my appetite. By force of habit, I am compelled to exert my dominance. This man who matches me in wit and physical strength will get down on his knees. I will make him beg.
There’s only one problem.
I’ve found me a man whose will won’t bend even when his body is broken. A man who satisfies my demons only too well. How can a relationship that starts so wrong face anything but disaster?
After two years away, my best friend Tate pulls up in town with a new boyfriend in tow. What’s my plan? For his boyfriend to become an ex and for me to be the new man in Tate’s life.
What’s Standing In My Way ?
He’s only supposed to help me to get rid of Bryan but makes the most ridiculous proposition for him to render his assistance. He wants me on my knees. The worst part of it is that I can’t refuse. He may have the upper hand, but I will not submit to him. It doesn’t matter how much I crave the punishment he doles out with his Cat-O’-Nine. But the more I know Keith, the more I want from him. Not just his punishment. Not just his bondage. Keith thinks I’ll be either his salvation or the death of him, but what if he will be the death of me?
Corporate Bondage is 70k+ steamy romance with HEA between two unlikely anti-heroes you will love.
This book starts out really intense and dark from the very first chapter, grabbing the reader’s attention from the get-go.
Both MC’s are unapologetic, spiteful assholes in the beginning (middle, end…), which is very refreshing and original! Have no fear… they grow on you!
I loved the passive aggressive side that Gio showed Bryan (awful, but something we all can relate too I’m sure) and the bitchy & snarky conversations and internal dialogue from Keith and Gio both. This made for really entertaining reading, but then, I love me a good anti-hero…and here you get two for the price of one!
A good redemption story has such potential to really touch a reader, and this was an outstanding one!
I’m so impressed with how the author let all that anger and hurt turn into hesitant caring and then love. This is an amazing love story, because the MC’s fight it, and each other, so much, and they are far more vulnerable beneath all their armor than your average MC, especially Keith.
I honestly couldn’t put this book down!!
At a certain point, Keith’s past catches up with him, just when he’s finally starting to believe that love and happiness might be possible for him after all. Such a cruel move, Ms. Holmes!
It made the story even more intense though, so well done! But oh…poor Keith and Gio.
The epilogue is cute and very sweet, all the while staying true to the MC’s grouchy natures, that not even a HEA can take away completely.
