Ashley Bell meets the CEO of the company she works for while lying on the floor of her cubicle attempting to get rid of a migraine. Ben Stone is instantly drawn to Ashley but he knows he can't have her because she isn't a shifter. He has taken over his brother's company after his death (that Ben feels responsible for) but can't take over his pack. Due to his father's actions, he carries a death threat over his head. Since he can't have Ashley, he does the next best thing and creates a position as his personal assistant (which even he finds odd because he hates being around people). Shortly after Ashley starts her new job, her twin sister is kidnapped and the price of her ransome is to destroy Ben. As they work together to solve who wants to destroy Ben and who has her sister, the sparks and spankings fly.
I will admit that one of my guilty pleasures is shifter romance. And this novel did not disappoint. For something I chose at random because I didn't want to read a historical, this was awesome. I enjoyed the sexual tension between the characters and at several points in the book, I was worried that my e-reader was going to combust! I hope that this isn't the only shifter romance that the author writes. I would love to see more.
This novel isn't for the faint of heart. Ben is an Alpha dominant male that likes to spank and there is plenty.
I received this novel as an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
