Gavin: Ellie Montague is smart, sensitive, and so gorgeous it hurts to look at her. She’s also an intern in my office. The office of the Prime Minister of Canada.* That’s me. The PM. She calls me that because when she calls me Sir, I get hard and she gets flustered, and as long as she’s my intern, I can’t twist my hands in her strawberry-blonde hair and show her what else I’d like her to do with that pretty pink mouth.**
Ellie: How much I like the PM varies on a daily basis. He’s intense, controlling, and a perfectionist in every way—and he demands the same of his staff. How much I want him never wavers. There’s something about him that tugs at me deep inside, and makes me wish that just once he’d cross the line in a late night work session. I’d take that secret to the grave if it meant I got a taste of the barely restrained beast inside him.*** . . . FOOTNOTES: * This is a fictional erotic romance. No prime ministers or interns were harmed in the making of this book. ** Except it’s a BDSM romance, so they were hurt a little. *** Spoiler alert: she gets more than a taste. And she likes it.
PRIME Minister (Frisky Beavers #1)
By Ainsley Booth and Sadie Haller
Mum and Dad, don’t look…I’m talking Frisky Beavers
I love my Mum and Dad and they love me. They love me so much that they follow my blog and read everything I write which makes facing my Dad kinda awkward. Some days I catch up with them and the first thing my Dad says is – “What kind of bloody rubbish are you reading?” Obviously, this is not rubbish to me but to a 70-year-old blokey bloke, he doesn’t like to read about my hearts aflutter or that a book was HOT. Well, this time, I think this book and my review will definitely push him over the edge. Prime Ministerhad hearts aflutter, was one of the HOTTEST books I’ve read this year…AND…it was KINKY!!
This story is about a couple of people who are extremely attracted to each other but are in a situation that is not conducive to a relationship. It doesn’t help that any relationship they form could end up in the spotlight. See, when you’re a single, good looking and relatively young Prime Minister, and you have a desire to spank your partner…things can get awfully messy. If that Prime Minister also falls for a smart and intelligent INTERN…well that’s beyond messy, that’s SCANDALLOUS.
Now, this is the sort of kinky I really, really enjoy. This isn’t a couple of people walking into a dungeon and getting off on the extreme emotions generated from a little kinky play.Prime Minister is about an experienced man, Gavin Strong, who likes to dominate, has to hide his predilections because of his career and has only one person he can confide in about his frustrations. Ellie Montague has had a crush on the Prime Minister for awhile. She’s not only attracted to his physical attributes, Ellie is fascinated with his mind. She respects him and is impressed with the way he has embraced his new role of leading her country. When the two of them meet, the sparks fly. Both of them know it is not an ideal situation (think Monica Lewinsky) and try to push each other away. Unfortunately, the more they try to resist, the more their attraction grows.
Seriously, this book was good. It was believable, yet heartbreaking to see what a man in power must overcome to have a happy life outside of his work. In some ways, I think it’s understandable for a relationship to develop within a party office. Not everyone is willing to take a back step to politics, war and financial debates. You have to be a special kind of Frisky Beaver to understand that your partner does have other things on their mind when you’re sitting down to dinner. What made Prime Minister special is because we get to see into Gavin’s mind, the turmoil he goes through every time he has to pick his country over his girlfriend.
Prime Minister was a bit longer than I thought it would be. I assumed it would be a bit of smutty fun with the Prime Minister bumping uglies with his intern at his desk, or her taking notes dressed in nothing but a smile. Turns out I got it all wrong. The kinky stuff was minor to the actual story of Gavin and Ellie. Yes, I still got a giggle out of their role-playing, and was extremely “interested” in some of their other play, but like I said it wasn’t just that. There is a love story and it was very sweet. I loved that Gavin loved to hold Ellie in his lap to cuddle. It made my heart flutter that he found it hard not to be touching her when they were near each other. I admired Ellie for trying to save Gavin’s career by stepping away from him…but I loved it more that Gavin wouldn’t allow it.
So, Prime Minister was definitely a winner for me. For crikey sakes Dad, if you did read this review, don’t say I didn’t warn you.
