Just Business by Anna Zabo

(Takeover, #2)

Justin White may not look like an up and coming corporate superstar, but his new boss knows he has the smarts, grit, and determination to succeed. Now he just has to convince his company’s CFO, Eli Ovadia. Unfortunately, Justin can’t seem to keep his cool around the domineering Eli—and soon he finds himself taking their heat from the boardroom into the bedroom….

Still haunted by a tragic accident that left him with a wounded leg and broken heart, Eli has a need to be in control. But his desire for Justin makes him want to lose that control—and push them both far beyond their limits. But will his need to dominate Justin drive him away—or will Eli find a way to be the man he needs for both of them?

I read this on a whim and am glad I did - not perfect but it had a surprisingly sweet relationship (a little over angst filled sometimes, but it worked.)

It takes two men with bizarre histories and tragic backgrounds and pushes them together in the business world, where they find out they have the kinky desires in common and work perfectly together in that regard. Now it's just the other stuff they have to figure out...

There's an intense play scene and the series is catered toward enjoying public play, with m/m romance all wrapped in one. Unfortunately dialogue is painful sometimes, with the main character especially. The writing is multiple point of view and well done, it doesn't skip around too much and stays on point.

What was weird was sneaking this one at work during a slow time and then running into a few scenes that took me by surprise, and trying to keep a straight face through them!

The book is the second in a series (I haven't read the first), has disabled characters, tragic pasts, a relationship that works, pretty intense play, so if you're in the mood for that kind of thing - this book is definitely calling your name.
