Three determined bosses…
Tate Baxter, Eric Cohen, and Kellan Kent are partners for one of the most respected law practices in Chicago. But these three masters of the courtroom also share a partnership in the bedroom, fulfilling the darkest needs of their female submissives night after night. Everything was fine—until they hired Annabelle Wright as their administrative assistant.
One beautiful secretary…
Belle felt sure she’d hit the jackpot with her job, but in the last year, the three gorgeous attorneys have become far more than her bosses. They’re her friends, her protectors, and in Belle’s dreams, they’re her lovers, too. But she’s given her heart to them all, so how can she choose just one?
An unforgettable night…
When her bosses escort her to a wedding, drinks and dancing turn into foreplay and fantasy. Between heated kisses, Belle admits her innocence. Surprise becomes contention and tempers flare. Heartbroken and unwilling to drive them apart, Belle leaves the firm and flees to New Orleans.
That leads to danger.
Resolved to restore her late grandmother’s home, she hopes she can move on without the men. Then Kellan, Tate, and Eric show up at her doorstep, seeking another chance. But something sinister is at work in the Crescent City and its sights are set on her. Before the trio can claim Annabelle for good, they just might have to save her life.
I have read every book in Shayla Black and Lexi Blake’s Master of Ménage Series. After I finished each book, I swore that it was my favorite. Well after finishing Their Virgin Secretary, the sixth book in the series, I must state unequivocally that this one is my favorite. Really!
I think one of the reasons that I keep changing my mind about my favorite in the series is because of the growth in Ms. Black and Ms. Blake’s writing collaboration. By this sixth book in the series, they have mastered creating interesting, fascinating characters that go above and beyond the standard romance character. This time they have created three delicious men who would intrigue me individually but together compelled me to read page after page so that I finished the book in one day.
So let me present my case for this one being the best. It has everything you could want in a romance novel – great characters, compelling dialogue, an intriguing storyline and blazing hot sex.
First there are the great characters. This time around we have three handsome, intelligent lawyers who are lusting after their secretary. It’s easy to see why Belle fell in love with these men. Eric is the referee of the group, always soothing over any conflict. He puts on a public face of calm and confidence, but he hides so much inside. Kellan was burned in the past and he’s afraid to trust love. He desperately needs Belle to teach him about the importance of family and to remind him that true love does exist. Finally there is Tate who reminds me of an overgrown puppy. He is a self-proclaimed nerd who says exactly what he is thinking. Tate has so much insecurity stemming from his lack of social graces and needs Belle to show him that he is perfect just as he is. Belle is an independent, intelligent woman who is strong enough to handle three men. She has a great sense of humor and I think that we could be good friends.
Ms. Black and Ms. Blake have an amazing ability to write such authentic dialogue that I forget I’m reading a fictional romance. Even amidst the backdrop of a haunted house and a ménage a quattro, the book is absolutely grounded in reality. The dialogue flows so easily and naturally and I found myself laughing throughout because I could easily picture each man saying those stupid things that only a man would think is okay. Tate has no filter so it’s not surprising that he would say things like “She already has my heart. I would like for her to take my penis. Is that so much to ask?” It’s these quirks that I found so endearing and made me fall in love with this book.
Then there’s the sex – the steamy, passionate, hot sex. Is it wrong to be jealous of a fictional character? Because I am totally jealous of Belle and her bedroom antics with all three men. There is just the right amount of domination, humor, love and body tingling passion to make the bedroom scenes perfect. I have read other books by Ms. Black and Ms. Blake, and let me tell you that they have perfected the art of writing love scenes that will send you straight to a cold shower.
I hope that I have made my case and convinced you that Their Virgin Secretary is truly the best one in the Master of Ménage series. Since their collaborations are only getting better, I hope and pray that Ms. Black and Ms. Blake continue to work together to create more books for this series. They seem to have fun working together and the reader is gifted with some fantastic books. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!
