Review: Strictly Business  (Hooded Pleasures #1) by Sheryl Nantus

You can lead a Domme to love…but you can’t make her fall.

Kate Dubois is a Domme-for-hire for the highly exclusive Hooded Pleasures, a service offering private BDSM sessions to those who can’t—or won’t—risk appearing in an actual club.

Lately, though, she wonders if professional burnout is causing her to have painful flashbacks to a past heartbreak. When her boss insists her next client will be a breath of fresh air, Kate reluctantly agrees to an interview.

Alex Hanson dominates the world of computer game programming, but secretly he suspects he might be a sub in the bedroom. There’s only one good way to find out—hire a professional to show him the ropes.

Their first meeting puts both of them to the test—Alex’s self-control, and Kate’s realization she might just like him a little too much. But there’s no denying their emotions are inextricably entangled…a dangerous step Kate’s not sure her heart is prepared to take.

Warning: Contains a hard-core computer geek with a tender side, and a Domme who can’t afford to expose her greatest weakness—him. Geekery combined with flogging. Enjoy!

Kate Dubois is a Domme working for Hooded Pleasures-a for hire private BDSM service for those that can not be seen in a club. She’s been in a rut for the last year after her submissive left her in grand fashion in front of their whole BDSM club. Kate joined Hooded Pleasures to get her Domme needs fulfilled without all the feelings that relationships bring. Knowing Kate is in a rut, her boss gives her a special client she feels may give her the breath of fresh air she is seeking. Kate is wary but she goes to the interview anyway. Then she meets Alex.

Alex is a hot as hell geeky game programmer. A force to be reckoned with in the boardroom. After all of his relationships have left him seeking more, he comes to the conclusion he may be a submissive. He is too afraid to go to a club, so he hires Hooded Pleasures to find out once and for all if he is indeed, a submissive.

I absolutely fell in love with this book! Kate and Alex immediately clicked! I felt their chemistry and their intensity was off the charts! You can see feelings developing for both but trying so hard to keep them at bay. Kate doesn’t want to get hurt again plus there are the rules for their protection they both must abide by. Alex knows she’s hiding behind the rules because he feels he is breaking down her walls. He will not let her get away so he sets up a plan to prove what he feels for Kate. I really liked both Kate and Alex. You can see why Kate is scared and you can see why Alex is determined to show Kate he’s the real deal. I especially loved how the gamer aspect weaves it way throughout the story! It definitely adds to the compatibility showing they could be just good outside the bedroom as in. This is the first book by Sheryl Nantus that I have read and I highly recommend it. I am looking forward to additional books in the series!
