Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty, put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She’s certainly a woman who won’t be topped. Not in business anyway.
But she’s pretty sure she’d like to be topped in the bedroom.
Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Even her dominant boss, Hudson Pierce has turned down her advances, leaving her to fear that she will never find the lover she’s longing for.
Then the most unlikely candidate steps up. Boyd, her much-too-young and oh-so-hot assistant surprises her one night with bold suggestions and an authoritative demeanor he’s never shown her in the office.
It’s a bad idea…such a deliciously bad idea…but when Boyd takes the reins and leads her to sensual bliss she’s never known, the headstrong Norma can’t help but fall under his command.

Hudson Pierce was one of my first alpha loves so I went into this book thinking that no one from The Fixed Trilogy could top him. It’s Hudson for crying out loud! So there I am, jumping into this novella thinking that this would be fun and might possibly give me a little bit of a Hudson fix. I couldn’t have been more wrong about it.
Norma Anders is the Chief Financial Officer for Pierce Industries. She’s been Hudson Pierce’s right hand woman. She’s intelligent, loyal and fiercely independent. Yet, there’s something in her life that has been missing. What she wants is someone to take control in the bedroom. Thinking that Hudson is the dominant personality that she needs, she makes advances at him. Only to be turned down. What she didn’t know is that Boyd, her personal assistant has had his eye on her for a while now and he might possibly know what she needs.
Let me start with this. BOYD IS HOT! Seriously hot. When he comes at Norma with that authorative voice and barks out commands, I’m almost doing what he says myself. He seems to know exactly what Norma needs, finding the perfect balance between their working relationship and their personal relationship. Norma is getting the best of both worlds! She gets to be the strong independent woman at work and have a dominant man in her bed.
“You’re a totally different person from the one I know at the office. It’s like you wear your glasses and you’re one guy. Take them off and you turn into this.” “I assure you they’re both the same person. They guy who puts the contracts on your desk and screens your phone calls thinks about you makes as intensely as I’m thinking about it right now.”
Yep, fanning myself here. It’s not that his words are dirty. There’s just something about him that has the perfect balance of business nerdy and sexually dominant.
The only reason I didn’t give it the full 5 stars was because I’m extremely greedy and needed more from them. Since it is a novella, their time frame was over a course of several years and I just wanted more from them.
I pushed the door open and stepped onto the rooftop, grateful for the empty landscape if not for the hot, muggy night. Escape. That’s what this was. A much-needed escape.
I walked over to the railing and looked down at the street below, but my attention was still on the scene I’d just left. The awkward, horribly embarrassing scene. I groaned out loud. I could still see the look on Hudson’s face when I’d cornered him in the hallway and kissed him. Could still hear the disdain in his voice as he’d pushed me away and said, “You don’t want what I have to give, Norma. Trust me.”
But I did want what he had to give. At least, I was pretty sure I did. After the disappointing series of men I’d dated who’d failed to satisfy me in the bedroom, I’d realized I craved a lover with the confident, powerful strength of a man like Hudson Pierce. A man who controlled and had authority over me in every way possible. I’d thought that he would be the one guy who could handle that I was a smart, successful woman without letting it intimidate him. As his chief financial advisor, I’d been his right hand “man” for years. Couldn’t I also be the perfect companion elsewhere? The potential of the power couple we could make was scary and thrilling all at once.
Apparently, he didn’t have the same vision.
My flaws ran through my mind like bullet points on a PowerPoint presentation.
Too old (thirty-four, which was only a digit off from thirty-five)
Too serious (how else did a woman get to where I was in the business world?)
Too independent (I didn’t depend on anyone for anything, though I’d prefer the real deal to my seven-inch battery-operated boyfriend)
Too…not blond (the most frequent hair color of the women I’d seen on Hudson’s arm)
I groaned again. Stupid, stupid, stupid. What the hell had I been thinking? Obviously, I hadn’t been. I couldn’t even blame my behavior on being drunk—though there was plenty of alcohol at the event downstairs, I’d touched nothing but water all evening. The party was meant to be a celebration. Pierce Industries had just closed its highest earning year ever, and I was a key player in that success. Silly me for thinking that a better way to celebrate would be to announce my infatuation with my boss instead of raising a toast like everyone else.
God, Monday was going to suck. How could I face Hudson without turning beet red with shame ever again?
