The Ex (The Boss Book 4) by Abigail Barnette

OUT OF 5 STARS

OUT OF 5 STARS

Shameless Recommendation

Kyleigh Jane Alt Rom Mini <Banner
Rarely is there a series that can hold my interest through 4+ books. Either it hits a point of me being annoyed that the characters can't get their ish together 3 books later, or there is no longer any real meat to the story, just reading like: "sex, passing of time, big obstacle, sex, more time passes, sex, misunderstanding, sex." Not so with The Boss series.

Four books later, this is still one of my absolute favorite stories. Not because it’s hotter than hot (which it is) and not because it’s unique (which it is), but because it is written with such a terrifically intimate sincerity. Look, I’m no authority on the BDSM community. I am not — nor have I ever been — in a D/s relationship. But to me, Neil and Sophie have such an honest mutual vulnerability and respect that really appeals to me. Exploring and pushing boundaries together with an indelible thick-and-thin love. A gorgeous, deliciously erotic, responsible portrayal of life and love within dominance and submission, that doesn’t strip itself of substance, or give me the this-doesn’t-feel-quite-right heebie-jeebs. Abigail Barnette not only engages and entertains me with her writing, but she impresses me tremendously. I can not wait to read what 2015 has in store for Neil and Sophie. [December 2014]

Publisher Synopsis

via Amazon

TRIGGER WARNING: This book contains frank discussion of recovery from rape and suicidal thoughts.

Magazine editor-in-chief, bride-to-be, and soon-to-be-step-grandmother at twenty-six, Sophie Scaife is looking forward to married life with her fiancé and Dom, wickedly sadistic billionaire Neil Elwood. As they enter unexplored sensual territory, Neil leads Sophie to the very edge between pain and pleasure—and she discovers a surprising new side to her sexuality.

While Sophie balances her hectic work routine with her devotion to her unconventional family, Neil has to adjust to life as a retired mogul. With their big day drawing nearer, they have to forge through pre-wedding jitters, personal crises, and an unexpected houseguest to get to their kinky ever after.

But a decades old trauma still haunts Neil. When the private details draw public interest, Sophie learns that the scars of his past are greater than he let on—and he’ll need all of her love to heal them…

“I am going to eat you, Sophie. I’m going to restrain you and take as much of that delicious cunt as I want. Until you’re begging me to stop. Until you’re begging for my cock.”

GENRE

I suppose I was introduced to romance at an early age. When I was around 10 years old, I happened upon a highlighted and dog eared copy of “The Joy Of Sex” on my mother’s bookshelf. I was shocked. I was fascinated. Maybe it was the 1970s power muffs, maybe it was the mustaches, maybe it was phrases such as “tongue bath”, who knows. As a teen, hiding Danielle Steel and VC Andrews paperbacks, I think I was drawn to reading romance/erotica because I felt like I was reading something I wasn't supposed to. Something forbidden. As an adult, I enjoy the truth of love. The triumph and tragedy. The build and the break. I'm drawn to stories with grit, and substance, and meat on their bones. The format breakers, the unusual. I’m always searching for that next great read. The story that burrows deep into your guts, and changes you.
