Review: Just Business (Takeover #2) by Anna Zabo

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?

“He and I… We were both a bit lost. We found each other, brought each other home.”

Justin and Eli are both a bit more than lost. They each have a trauma in their past that still haunts them. Interestingly enough it is these past events that really bring them together and solidify them in the end. Their road to that point is anything but smooth. They have many issues to work out and those issues seem to get overlooked due to the fact that they can’t keep their hands (cuffs, ropes, floggers and canes) off of each other.

Outside of the bedroom and playroom Eli and Justin work together. This was the more entertaining part of Just Business for me. Eli is sharp and witty and has the best barb to most comments thrown about in the office. The banter between Eli, Justin, Sam, and Michael was thoroughly entertaining. It made Eli’s hard edge easily likable.

BDSM romances and Ds relationships really are not my thing. I keep trying them and while I’m not disappointed I still don’t get whatever it is out of them that everyone else does. With Eli and Justin’s story I didn’t care if their relationship made it or not until the moment they were both crying all over each other. At that point I became fully invested in seeing them make what they have together truly work.

Just Business easily works as a stand-alone. The couple from Takeover (Sam and Michael) have roles as friends and employer here but nothing that would require having the read the first book to fully understand and enjoy the second.
