It’s her naughty dream job—if they’re satisfied with her performance…

Eager to escape her miserable existence in Low-Life, Long Island, street-wise Dana Arthur jumps at an entry-level position with the consulting firm Cowell & Dirk. As her training period begins, she quickly discovers she’s required to do more than take messages and order office supplies. Her job description contains some deliciously naughty duties that give receptionist a whole new meaning.

Simon has almost given up on finding the right woman who will please his clients as well as his demanding partner and mentor, Ethan Cowell. No one measures up—until Dana. Her inner fire and fearless nature are perfect for the job. No matter what wicked punishment he devises to chastise her for her on-the-job mistakes, she accepts with a relish that leaves him wondering which one of them is really in control.

The last thing he expects to discover is that she’s a perfect sexual soul mate he can’t bear to share. But share he must—it’s part of his business agreement. Unless he makes Ethan the deal of a lifetime…

Dana Arthur is on a job search. After many different jobs she applies for a receptionist position at Cowell and Dirk. Dana hopes that this maybe the one job that she has been searching for. Little does she know but this job requires some unique training. Executive Vice President Simon Dirk is there to train her while Mr. Cowell is away. Could Dana’s job searches finally be over?

This book is told from Dana’s point of view as if she’s telling you the story. It is fast paced and well written. As Dana debates with herself on letting Simon do the things he does to her we learn that she is a smart and strong woman. Simon and Dana begin a strange relationship. As he trains her for her positions Simon awakens sexual feelings in Dana that she did not even know she had. Dana finds herself drawn to Simon in ways that are all new to her. The two begin to think that they have more than just a working relationship that it may go deeper than either had planned and they must deal with the missing part of this puzzle: Ethan Cowell.

This story can be intense at times and it is full of strong erotic play scenes. It is not the usual romance story so if you do not enjoy BDSM you may find this story is not for you, but I enjoyed this book.

Dana is an independent woman and Simon is an Alpha male who ends up finding more than just a fun time and a quick lay. Each day their relationship and attraction grows stronger and in the end it could be what saves them. Juniper Bell grabs the reader from the beginning and doesn’t let go until the end. I will definitely be looking for more stories from this author.
