Fans of Joey W. Hill's Knights of the Boardroom series have
wondered about super-efficient admin Janet Albright and sexy
limo driver Maxwell Ackerman. In WILLING SACRIFICE, we're
treated not only to their backstory but to their discovery
of each other as more than co-workers. Ms. Hill maintains
the BDSM thread of the series but in this case the roles are
reversed as Max learns the pleasure he gains from being
Janet's submissive. The distinction between sub and Dom
isn't as strong as it is in the earlier books but it's clear
that Janet is in-charge in the bedroom.
Janet and Max have worked together for years, both loyal to
the man and the company that transformed their lives. When
they find themselves working together to save the life of
their boss's wife and unborn child their awareness of each
other deepens. The attraction between them is strong but
ex-Navy SEAL Max has never thought of himself as a
submissive, and he's well aware of Janet's sexual
preferences. An evening at the club watching her with a sub
sparks an unexpected desire that they are both more than
willing to explore.
WILLING SACRIFICE is an excellent addition to the Knights of
the Boardroom series. The men and woman from the earlier
books weave in and out of the story in a way that feels
natural. Janet and Max are fascinating characters with dark
and complex backstories. The dark and twisted circumstances
in Janet's past are slowly revealed and have a profound
influence on her relationship with Max. How she makes her
way past these issues is an integral part of the story. Max is
dealing with redefining himself as he comes to accept that
he enjoys being Janet's sub all while dealing with the
experiences and family born out of his time in the military.
The journey that Janet and Max must take to find their way
to each other is emotionally rich and ridiculously sexy.
Janet prefers her men submissive, her relationships confined
to a club environment. Which is why her attraction to former
Navy SEAL Max doesnâ€™t make a lot of sense. There isnâ€™t a
submissive bone in his honed, muscular body, suggesting that
her interest in him is best indulged as a private fantasy.
After a crisis situation reveals a different side of them
both, the attraction becomes mutual, explosive and
undeniable. They take the plunge, willing to see if the
give-and-take of their unexpected relationship can satisfy
their deepest desires. Unfortunately, ghosts from their past
might take the reins from them both, destroying the balance
of power before their love can find a way to tip the scales.
