Book Review: Strictly Confidential

I am in such a reading slump and my goal for September is to absolutely get out of it. I have too many book reviews coming, I have too many amazing books to read, I've got to get going. I'm only 9 books away from hitting my Goodreads Challenge goal of 105 books this year. Woot woot!

Strictly Confidential - Lynda Aicher

Life is about power—who has it, who doesn’t.

Anyone who says otherwise hasn’t spent time in Kennedy Keller’s business-casual two-point-five-inch heels. A woman in a world very much run by men, Kennedy does whatever it takes to keep her power, in the office and outside of it.

Until she lets her guard down and decides to submit to a man for just one night. He’s everything she doesn’t usually let herself have: sexy, strong…dominant.

Matt Hamilton said goodbye to the Dom life years ago—power games and the delectable push/pull of dominance and submission might start in the bedroom, but it never stays there.

Reunited in the Boardroom, Matt and Kennedy test their desires and boundaries…and learn that one night is never just one night.
This was a great book to read to get me out of my reading slump, coming in at 284 for the mass paperback this is a fast read. It starts almost immediately with some sexy action, which is what you'd expect from an erotic romance. Both the leading woman and man are interesting characters, though wildly different in different ways. They come together on a business conference and neither can let the one time encounter go. A chance meeting in The Boardroom brings them together again, to both of their surprise. They tread carefully and almost reluctantly start a relationship. It's new territory for both of them so you can expect some mishaps and an incident that threatens what they've worked so hard to build. 

Things I really liked are definitely the sex scenes in the book. There are several so if that's your thing you won't be disappointed. The only thing I found tough to chew was the incident that plays as the major conflict in the book. I didn't totally understand the situation or why each person felt the way they did but that is on me, I don't know if other people would wonder about that. I liked this book enough that I want to read the rest of this series and I'm definitely interested in Lynda Aicher's other books. This is book three in The Boardroom series but it's a stand alone, you don't need to read the others to be up to speed in this one. It's a great read and I definitely recommend it if you like the erotic romance genre, or maybe you haven't read any and would like to start.

Sorry to hear the big conflict didn't really work for you, but that's good you liked most of the book! And I hope you continue to read books that get you out of your slump.
