Book review - Not Safe For Work by L.A Witt (M/M BDSM romance) 4.5 stars

Not Safe For Work by L.A Witt
M/m BDSM romance 
4.5/5 stars 


They’re a match made in the dungeon…until their secret gets out.
Bored senseless in a meeting, architectural modeler Jon McNeill amuses himself with a kinky dating app on his phone. Then the app matches him with another user…who’s six feet away. Suddenly Jon finds himself on the same page as someone way above his pay grade: millionaire property developer Rick Pierce. His firm’s biggest—and hottest—client.
The app isn’t kidding either. They’re a perfect match. Jon’s a Dom, Rick’s a sub, and bondage is their thing. Both guys are well into their forties, know their way around the bedroom, and definitely appreciate a good suit. And the best part? They’re a match outside the bedroom too.
But office relationships aren’t easy to keep a secret. When the truth comes out, Jon is certain he’s about to get fired. Instead, his bosses throw him a curve ball—an ultimatum that puts both his job and his relationship in jeopardy. 
Warning: Contains literal and figurative sex machines, blindfolds, a sub being punished during a business meeting, enough rope to tangle up a millionaire, and a Golden Girls marathon.


Not Safe For Work is an entertaining and seriously hot m/m BDSM romance. The thing that I most liked about this book was that the main characters were in their forties, it was so refreshing to read about older characters with normal problems. It was also nice to have two characters who communicated well and actually talked to each other about their problems. The only slight negative I can find was that the middle of the book felt a little slow, but the story soon picked back up again. I've read three books by this author now, and this one is by far my favourite - I'll definitely be reading more of her work in the future.

Jon is divorced, struggling to put his three children through college and feels under appreciated at work. During a boring meeting he logs onto a kinky dating app and finds out that his perfect match is sitting just six feet away from him! Rick is a super important client of the firm that Jon works for and is way out of his league. But when they meet up and start to explore Jon discovers that Rick really is his dream submissive - and he is the Dom that Rick has spent forever searching for. But when Jon's bosses find out about them they issue him an ultimatum that could mean the end of their relationship.

The story is told entirely from Jon's point of view, and I must say that I absolutely loved him. He really is a good guy, he's adorable - not that a Dom would appreciate me calling him adorable! Rick was really sweet too - a hard ass in the boardroom but a (slightly bratty) sub in the bedroom. The connection between them was strong and their chemistry was sizzling. The bedroom (and dungeon) scenes were amazing, they were very hot and very enjoyable. There were also some hilarious moments, thanks to Jon and his work mates. Their banter and antics in the NSFW zone were brilliant. This fabulous book receives four and a half stars.

Book review - Master No by Lexi Blake (BDSM romance) - 5 stars

Master No by Lexi Blake 
BDSM romance 
5/5 stars 


Disavowed by those he swore to protect…

Tennessee Smith is a wanted man. Betrayed by his government and hunted by his former employer, he’s been stripped of everything he holds dear. If the CIA finds him, they’re sure to take his life as well. His only shot at getting it all back is taking down the man who burned him. He knows just how to get to Senator Hank McDonald and that’s through his daughter, Faith. In order to seduce her, he must become something he never thought he’d be—a Dom.

Overcome by isolation and duty…

All her life, Dr. Faith “Mac” McDonald has felt alone, even among her family. Dedicating herself to helping others and making a difference in the world has brought her some peace, but a year spent fighting the Ebola virus in West Africa has taken a toll. She’s come home for two months of relaxation before she goes back into the field. After holding so many lives in her hands, nothing restores her like the act of submission. Returning to her favorite club, Mac is drawn to the mysterious new Dom all the subs are talking about, Master No. In the safety of his arms, she finds herself falling head over heels in love.

Forced to choose between love and revenge…

On an exclusive Caribbean island, Ten and Mac explore their mutual attraction, but her father’s plots run deeper than Ten could possibly have imagined. With McKay-Taggart by his side, Ten searches for a way to stop the senator, even as his feelings for Mac become too strong to deny. In the end, he must choose between love and revenge—a choice that will change his life forever.


Wow! Master No is an awesome book, I didn't want it to end. Regular readers will know I love Lexi Blake's Masters and Mercenaries series, so when I say that this book is my favourite book in the series you'll know it's pretty damn good! This is ex CIA agent Ten's story, and it's just as exciting and action packed as I expected. There is a lot going on in this book, and some of the events are heartbreaking - the author had me crying buckets at one point. There are a lot of twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat - and OMG what an ending!

Former CIA agent Tennessee Smith has been betrayed by the country he served and he's out for revenge. Senator Hank McDonald destroyed Ten's career and now he's going to destroy the senator and prove his own innocence. His plan involves using the senator's daughter Faith to gain access to their private Caribbean island. He poses as a Dom to gain Faith's trust and soon finds himself falling for   her - but the doctor is far too good and innocent for a damaged man like Ten. But in the end he has to choose between Faith and his plans for revenge.

Ten is a great character and I love his relationship with the McKay-Taggart crew - especially his friendship with Big Tag. I didn't really approve of the way he lied to and used Faith, but I know why he did it. But when he started to care about her I just wanted to give him a slap and tell him to come clean! You can't help but like Faith, she is a truly good person who's dedicated her life to caring for those less fortunate than her.  Faith and Ten are good together, but there are lots of obstacles in their path - including Faith's father. 

Master No is a real emotional roller coaster ride - one minute I'd be laughing at the McKay-Taggart gang's banter, then the next minute I'd be in tears. It's definitely a stand out book in a five star series, Master No is a must read. Five fabulous stars!
