They’re a match made in the dungeon…until their secret gets out.
Bored senseless in a meeting, architectural modeler Jon McNeill amuses himself with a kinky dating app on his phone. Then the app matches him with another user…who’s six feet away. Suddenly Jon finds himself on the same page as someone way above his pay grade: millionaire property developer Rick Pierce. His firm’s biggest—and hottest—client.
The app isn’t kidding either. They’re a perfect match. Jon’s a Dom, Rick’s a sub, and bondage is their thing. Both guys are well into their forties, know their way around the bedroom, and definitely appreciate a good suit. And the best part? They’re a match outside the bedroom too.
But office relationships aren’t easy to keep a secret. When the truth comes out, Jon is certain he’s about to get fired. Instead, his bosses throw him a curve ball—an ultimatum that puts both his job and his relationship in jeopardy.
Warning: Contains literal and figurative sex machines, blindfolds, a sub being punished during a business meeting, enough rope to tangle up a millionaire, and a Golden Girls marathon.
I was thrilled when I discovered Not Safe For Work a novel by LA Witt, one with a BDSM genre tag, no less! LA Witt never disappoints and I found that to be true once again.
There were many things to like about Not Safe For Work. The two main protagonists, Jon and Rick were very down to earth, middle-aged guys. They were more established in life. This wasn’t their first relationship and they had colorful pasts. Jon identified as bisexual and he had two ex-wives and three college-aged kids. He was like the rest of us hardworking individuals, living paycheck to paycheck and working like mad to make ends meet and put his kids through school.
Rick was an interesting individual. Since we only get Jon’s POV, Rick is a bit of an anomaly. We know he started his life in humble beginnings. That propelled him to work hard and become a successful businessman. His company builds buildings and leases spaces and condos for business owners and people at affordable prices. He knew what it was like to spend every dime putting a roof over his families heads he watched his mom do that and he wanted to alleviate that hardship for others. Rick was a smart but caring businessman.
Jon and Rick hook up when they ping each other through an app for men looking for kink. Jon being a Dom and Rick being a submissive, their kinks matched up perfectly. They decide to take a risk and see if they’d be compatible. Boy were they ever!
The heat level is sizzling in Not Safe For Work. They start out slow, their lust taking over but also playing it safe. They get off and enjoy getting to know each other’s likes and dislikes learning their bodies. Rick’s a natural submissive. He wants to please and he does so flawlessly. Rick enjoys the dominance. He’s not into intense sadism. He likes to push Rick just enough but their BDSM scenes are about the dominance, bondage, sensations and getting off. When the Wartenberg Wheel is pulled out (more than once), settle in a for some of the hottest sessions in the book! For Jon and Rick it’s about connection and feelings. It’s more for both men than just the kink. The kink brings them together but they quickly discover that they’re getting so much more from each other. Now they just have to navigate outside forces that work against them in order to stay together.
RATING: BAD ASS BOOTS!
