Savannah was groomed from birth to take the reins of her father’s manufacturing empire. Her emotional armor is as tough as the steel used in her factories, and nobody is allowed past it. Business partner Matt realizes that the key to entry is to command her submission. Calling on the unique sensual talents of his four-man management team, he engineers an aggressive and erotic takeover, determined to rescue the woman he loves from the steel cage she’s manufactured around her heart. Masked and lost to the sensations the team arouses in her, Savannah is theirs, at least for this one night.
From time to time, you come across an author who simply gets it. There is no secret ploy, no hidden twist or turn to sell the story. There is just the primal sexual need that is manipulated and fed, leading to a climax (no pun intended) that leaves you breathless. One such author with this talent is the ever memorable Joey W. Hill, and her latest, Board Resolution, is a staunch reminder of just how good she is at what she does.
The blurb summarizes what the reader can expect, but as any fan of Ms. Hill knows, the underlying tension and release that accompanies surrender goes so much deeper. In this, we are introduced to her favorite kind of heroine – tortured and unable to extend or accept love. Savannah lives by principals instilled by an overbearing and uncaring father, and the rules have trapped her in an unhappy existence. In a ploy to lower her inhibitions and allow someone inside to nurture, cherish, and care for her as she deserves, Matt enlists the aid of his four business associates, with gifts and desires of their own. The harder Savannah fights his claim, the more determined Matt is to have her complete surrender. Using every device at his disposal, he sets out to conquer and master the woman he cannot let go, and the result is a give and take, measured with anger, resentment, enlightenment, and finally, love.
Don’t forget to pencil this one onto your TBR list. Fans of an unforgettable erotic story that provides the emotional impact I’ve come to expect with Joey W. Hill will devour Board Resolution. She’s one of my must read authors for a reason, and this is only one of many works that have taken me on a wild and unforgettable journey I couldn’t shake if I wanted to.
