Elijah Elliot and Beatrix London's fledgling ad agency is under siege. Not from outside competition but by Eli and Bea's unspoken lust for each other. As their unsatisfied cravings to dominate and submit bloom into vivid daydreams, the office becomes a minefield of frustrated needs and dangerous desires. Now something's gotta give or their partnership is going to self-destruct.

When Bea unveils a racy new light bondage ad campaign for their key client, she pushes Eli to cross the line he's drawn between them—the one that keeps him from doing all the hot, sinful things she imagines he's capable of...

Who knew you could have such fun with a washing machine and quarters? Did I pique your interest? Then you need to read Coin Operated.

Ginny Glass and Carina Press are new to me. Hey, I like new. Some of the best things were once new. That being said, I went into this story with my eyes wide open, ready for a great story. Ms. Glass definitely creates characters I didn’t forget. There were many times when I felt like I was right there beside them as the story went forward. Getting into a character’s head can be difficult, but worth the effort. In this case, it paid off. I was able to understand the motivation of both Bea and Eli. When they got together and let down their guard, it was danged hot.

I didn’t mind the idea of unorthodox sex toys. It made the story burn hotter. But there were a few times when I scratched my head wondering why things transpired as they did. There were plot twists I didn’t see coming and worked perfectly. I liked Eli’s fear with Bea — it was palpable and real, right when the story needed it most. Then there were other times when I didn’t understand him at all, but that made him realistic. Who really understands every facet of their partner at any given moment? Not me.

Still, the story gripped my attention and the sex scenes singed the screen. If you want a story that’s a mix of heady emotion and sex, then you need to read Coin Operated. I give it 3 cherries.
