Blurb: Maggie was devastated when her husband divorced her because she couldn’t have children, but she eventually moved on and started her own graphic design business. When her business partner Jason indicates he wants their relationship to be personal, Maggie is tempted by the sexy young designer, but she thinks she's too old for him.

Yet an unexpected encounter featuring fuzzy handcuffs and a pink flogger leaves Maggie feeling he may just be “The One”. She’s riding a wave of happiness until a younger woman shows up claiming to be pregnant by Jason. Can Maggie and Jason’s relationship handle the strain?

Review: Well written with a solid story and characters, my only issue was with Maggie’s constant thoughts of Jason as an employee and not a business partner.
Aside from that one nick for me, the story, the sex, the rest was good. Ms Sterling has a real way with making images POP that as a reader I appreciate and love to see when I read. The conversation between characters flowed well and all in all I had a good time reading this one :)

What more could I ask for? A smokin' hot guy and steamy sex? Sounds like Christmas to me ;)

Thanks so much for the positive review and the feedback about Maggie's attitude toward Jason. :)

Maggie's looking at Jason as an employee, rather than an equal partner, was actually deliberate in that it was an area in which she needed to grow. She created psychological distance by seeing him as a young underling, rather than an equal, because she couldn't handle her attraction to a much younger man. That was one way she tried to keep herself in line. Apparently, as a writer, I didn't make that clear enough, LOL. Great feedback for me to have - now I'll remember to make sure I have my characters' motivations as clear on paper as they are in my head! :)

Thanks again for taking the time to read and review my story. I really appreciate it, and love this site. :)
