Power may be best when it’s shared…

He’s used to dominating…
Tarak Nektosha is a self-made man, against all odds. He accomplished that by making sure he’s the one in charge, both in the boardroom and in the bedroom.

She’s taking her power back…
Sabra Donovan has ambition to spare and energy to burn. So what if her last lover was a disappointment? She’s never going to be anyone’s plaything ever again.

Sabra’s outstanding performance at a corporate photo op attracts Tarak’s attention, and the lines begin to blur. What happens when the one on top surrenders and the one used to obeying begins to call the shots?


Review:   When you take attraction and boil it down to its most primitive level, you get pure emotion. Strip away all the pretenses and social niceties and you will find Tarak Nektosha and Sabra Donovan’s story.

Author Dawn Ryder sets the stage for an office romance in Out of Bounds. It’s not your typical scenario, though. Tarak may appear to be a civilized executive in a tailored suit, but underneath that finely polished exterior is a full-blooded Apache.

Sabra may not have climbed very far up the corporate ladder, but the last thing she plans to do is sleep her way to the top. She didn’t plan for a jaw-dropping mutual attraction with the company’s owner.

In this no-holds-barred erotic tale, Tarak and Sabra rewrite the rules of engagement. While the rich Alpha is a common character in the world of erotica, Ryder takes a different approach by matching him with a strong female. It is clear that Sabra is no simpering, clueless office groupie.

This is definitely a book that is perfect for a weekend escape from the hum-drum of cubicle life. The heat factor, not to mention the couple’s stamina, is off the charts. What warm-blooded female would turn down a man like Tarak? If you are Sabra, you want to be more than just the flavor of the day.

I would recommend some light editing to remove some pesky typos. Other than that, this is one book that lives up to the expectation of hot and spicy.
