Leonardo Caparelli is wealthy, good-looking, and runs a highly successful business. He lives life to the fullest with a rare passion, demanding beauty and excitement from the world around him. When he hires the enigmatic Paige Palmer to be his new personal assistant, he is instantly attracted to her, but Leonardo has one rule—he never mixes business with pleasure—until now.
Running away from a troubled past, Paige travels a thousand miles across country to start work for the incredibly handsome yet ruthless billionaire. He is always in the news, and well-known for his hot temper and uncompromising attitude, and Paige soon learns that the rumors about his insatiable sexual appetite are all true.
However hard she tries to maintain her professionalism, Paige finds it impossible to deny the growing attraction between them. When she finally summons up the courage to tell Leonardo about her past, it sets off a dangerous chain of events that could threaten both their lives.
Will Leonardo be able to save Paige, or will her harrowing past destroy them both?
Review: His to Master and Enjoy is the second book in The Billionaires and Their Playgrounds by Jan Bowles. I chose this book because I enjoy reading Ms. Bowles books and each book is different from the last.
Paige had a rough life. Her last Dom was a sadist and not even sane enough to play. The courage she showed to leave her Dom, her town and start over is amazing. Not many people can show that courage.
Leonardo is a Dom but comes across as self-centered man who looks down at all those around him. He seems to want everyone around him to be perfect. However, Paige cracks his hardened exterior in a way he did not expect, leaving him wanting to protect her at all costs.
The chemistry between Paige and Leonardo is scorching. The sex scenes are explosive. Leonardo is different for Paige than anyone else. He can appreciate how tough and resilient she is. I loved that no matter how tough the situation Paige went through the more that it drew Leonardo in when I really expected him to turn and run.
This book is well written. The main and secondary characters were interesting. I loved the message this book seems to send that it’s not what’s on the outside of a person but what is on the inside of each of us that really matters. Overall, this was a wonderful book and I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
