My new boss is good at giving orders. But his latest demand is NSFW. Especially when his two business partners want in on our deal.
My new boss
My boss’s boss
These three are the last men I expect to meet at the BDSM club I go to with my girls to celebrate keeping my job after a hostile takeover of my company. But these dominant, sexy billionaires make it clear that my company is not the only thing they want to take over.
What 21st century, workaholic, career woman with a drawer full of BOBs and batteries would pass on three rugged alphas intent on scrutinizing her assets? But if anyone at work finds out about our NSFW activities, my reputation in the corporate world will be ruined. Worse, if any of the three of them discover I’m falling for them, they’ll drop me faster than a bad investment.
If you love steamy romance that packs heat as well as heart, then you’ll love the Her Masters series where a woman who thinks she knows what she wants will meet three men who give her exactly what she needs.

This is my first book from this author and won’t be my last as this type of story is right up my alley. This story is a very niche book and there isn’t many books out there that fit this category. But there is a big problem, Johnson toys between the fine line of a good story and straight up scenes. The BDSM elements fit this novel and there is a basis for a good story . It’s just told at full speed from the perspective of the female and you have to felt whether they truly had time to form the bond needs for a relationship like theirs.
Each of the males in the novel bring something different to the novel in and out of the club. But we truly only get to explore the dynamics of some not all. Each has their quirks and traits that brings something to the relationship. However given the fast past of their relationship and how quick things come together we only hear the true perspective of the female. The guys are secondary in their thoughts, we only hear them when it comes to the defining moments and I wanted this group to be more solid given that the heroine was a bystander dreaming of things until she met these guys and gave her want she wanted.
It had the earmarking of something good but it didn’t quiet hit the mark for me.
