Life is passing Nadia Duskin by from her position in the mailroom. It only fulfills two necessities: keeping the repo man away and keeping her up to date on her sexy CEO.
Ethan Wright is prepared to frighten and fire the nosey girl who sorts his company’s mail. After engaging with her at one of his favorite places in the world, he digs deeper.
Together, they find the kind of pleasure that could keep them satisfied for a lifetime. Her love may be the key to putting both of their lives back on track, but to what end? When a man he’s been contracted to kill threatens Nadia’s life, he forces her to face reality. Either they’ll delve deeper into the desires neither expected or they may die trying.
Be Warned: light BDSM, anal play, spanking
Desire Unexpected by author S.J. Maylee is the first in the Assassins and Sweethearts series. Nadia works in the mail room. She has always been interested in her boss. She goes to the art museum every day on her lunch hour. She doesn’t expect the man of her dreams to be there waiting for her one day. Ethan is the Ceo of the company that Nadia works for. He really is trying to find out why she keeps asking about him. But when they meet they have a chemistry they both cannot deny. Nadia is the submissive to his dominate nature.
I like the story, it was sweet, with the right touches of heat but the right touches of it. I did find the flow of this story to be choppy. And Ethan can come off as obsessive stalker, but if you can suspend your belief this story is really great. There are some strong BDSM elements in this story but I found that they added to the whole story.
The transitions with moods were what I found choppy. Going from I don’t want you, to I want you, to obsessively thinking about the other person that was a bit much. However over all this is a great start to what promises to be a good series.
