Recession-stressed, out-of-work, recently evicted CEO Morgan James needs a job and has absolutely no chance of getting one, since Wall Street uses her as their scapegoat when the market crashes.

Financial mogul Donathon Cannon has more personal reasons to hate her but is more than willing to give her a job – if she wins the position by competing in a reality tv show for a chance to be his personal assistant.

But his plan come tumbling down when he realizes they are more alike than he’d ever want to admit. And when he decides to punish her in private, he'll have to keep his dominant streak - and his heart - from crossing the line.

There is a very thin line between love and hate, and that is clearly demonstrated from the beginning in this story. The sexual tension and chemistry between Morgan James and Donathan Cannon sparks from the very first page, even as they both try to deny it. This book is fast-paced and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat.

It is very interesting how Morgan who is a very aggressive and confident business woman discovers that she enjoys being submissive and being dominated by Donathan. Morgan's growth as a woman who cares about others and who is not solely focused on her career is a great story. Her ability to figure out how to make things work and to brazen her way through the most uncomfortable of situations is endlessly interesting. I found myself wondering how she would solve each situation as it was presented and she always came through.

Donathan's character grows during the course of this book also. He “thinks” that he set up the whole scenario of a “reality show” to humiliate and punish Morgan for her misdeeds, but through the course of the story, he discovers that all of his assumptions about her are not true. He also discovers that she appeals to him on a very basic level that he cannot deny.

I highly recommend this story to those that appreciate this genre. Some of the humiliation and sexual scenes are a bit rough and there is a group scene that may be disturbing to some readers, but this reviewer loved it. The emotions that build and grow between the characters more than compensates for the strong BDSM scenes at the beginning of the story. I believe that most readers will find the ending more than satisfying. A gripping read that I have to recommend to any fans of the BDSM genre.
