Former SAS officer Adam Granger has wanted Beth Harrison ever since she came to work for him, but he fears dating his luscious assistant might prove awkward.

Beth’s been attracted to Adam from the start. Alpha male through and through, he is the model for the fictional Dom in the novel she’s writing. But getting involved with her boss? Probably not a good idea.

When Beth is mugged on her way home, she finds herself in Adam’s arms and in his life. She discovers that he is the Dom she’s always wanted, but ghosts from his past have come back to haunt him, putting his business and his life at risk. Beth’s life is threatened and Adam must do all he can to protect what he holds most dear.


Review:  Master of Velvet by Kirstie Abbot is not part of a series but I would love to see these characters again in the near future. I chose this book because I have not read this author before and this book looked interesting.

Beth Harrison is Adam Granger’s personal assistant. While she is attracted to her boss, she does not want to date him due to his track record with woman. Beth spends her down time writing a novel where Adam is the model for the Dom in her book. Beth is strong and confident woman.

Adam is a former SAS officer and a Dom. He is a hot and sexy man who is attracted to his assistant. Adam has a dark past with the SAS that leaves a bit haunted and unwilling to discuss it. All his past has left him with is nightmares.

The chemistry between Adam and Beth is blistering. The sex scenes between them is scorching. The connection between Adam and Beth that went beyond the bedroom was great to see. Adam had a lot of respect for Beth and I loved how he tried to protect her.

This book was well written that kept me on my toes all the way through. While it was set in London, it did not have a whole lot of English slang, making it an easy read. I had a hard time putting this book down. The main and secondary characters were interesting and realistic. This was a fabulous read. I will be looking for more books by this author.
