On the Flap
Olivia Walker has just hit rock bottom. About to lose her job and become homeless, she can’t see a way out of the mess her life has become until Alex Davenport enters her life with a proposal she is in no position to refuse.
Wealthy and arrogant, Alex is used to getting whatever he wants and he has set his eyes on Olivia. For months he has watched her, waiting for the perfect opportunity to present itself to make her his, and finally it has appeared. But Alex is hiding a secret, one that he is determined to protect until, one day, Olivia makes a discovery that sets her on a course of self-discovery. Together they explore Olivia’s submissive side, pushing boundaries and taking her on the wildest ride of her life.
But when Olivia’s past threatens to expose Alex’s secret lifestyle, the time for truths and full disclosure is at hand. Can Alex let go of the fears that have bound his true nature? And can a couple that fell in lust find their own happily ever after?
Warning: This book is intended for mature audiences as it contains explicit sex scenes and BDSM themes.
Olivia has had a tough go of life. She’s barely making ends meet soon to be without a job or a home all while shouldering the responsibility of taking care of her ailing mother. To make everything okay for just a little longer, she just needs to purchase an exclusive book for her demanding boss.
Alex has success and wealth, unfortunately he also has a loving and meddling family who wants him married. He has no desire to have a long term relationship considering he has certain proclivities in the bedroom which those close to him know nothing about. Taken by a woman, he sets a plan into action to get what he wants.
I really enjoyed this book. It doesn’t quite follow the typical formula of a bdsm or even romance novel and yet doesn’t stray so far that it’s off-putting. For the plot directly, I like how Olivia and Alex did everything backwards. They put a marriage before a friendship or relationship but in their case it works. Olivia is great because while she comes across as a natural submissive, she’s also feisty and independent. On the flip side, Alex believes himself to be a firm sadist but he isn’t quite that either. Overall this is a book that is well written and just different enough to stand out. I can’t wait for further projects from Bibi.
