When the fearless, larger-than-life Nathan Donovan becomes her boss, Kelsey Lane’s life is turned upside down. The multimillionaire wants her by his side, but his demands don’t end there.

The youngest, boldest of the dynamic Donovan brothers, Nathan is accustomed to getting what he wants. And he focuses his attention on the smart, sexy Kelsey. He quickly discovers she’s unlike any woman he’s ever known.

She meets him, desire for desire, getting deep inside him, destroying the barriers he keeps around his heart. He wonders, though, if she’s willing to give him the one thing he demands…


Review:  Have you ever judged a book by its cover? If so, then author Sierra Cartwright absolutely nailed it with Boss, the third book in the Donovan Dynasty series. The appeal is in the simplicity of the cover, yet readers can easily recognize the erotic adventure that awaits.

Although I didn’t start at the beginning of the series, there were no problems jumping right in. If anything, my desire to read the other two books increased as a result of my enjoyment of this one.

Kelsey Lane is depicted as an independent, take charge kind of woman. I found her to be somewhat feisty, especially in dealing with Nathan Donovan. It was interesting to watch her introduction into the BDSM lifestyle as a submissive. Nathan, on the other hand, is undoubtedly well suited for his role as a Dom. The author presented elements of D/s in such a way that it would appeal to readers new to the genre.

I’d definitely describe this as a high octane kind of read, with plenty of sizzling scenes. When Nathan says he will teach Kelsey to be a submissive, he’s not kidding around. However, there’s certainly enough of a storyline to provide a proper balance. The author also added tidbits of humor along the way such as Sinbad the hamster. Being able to provide such a good balance is the mark of an experienced author. There’s no doubt that this author knows her material.

Whether the two can mesh outside the office is the challenge, especially since Nathan is determined to maintain control. This was a fantastically hot read, packed with high quality heat delivered by an author who clearly knows how to deliver a sizzling story.
