Switching Off

With his collar around her throat and her pulse pounding through her body, can she switch off enough to submit to his every whim?

Nina loves her job in middle management—her dominant personality and organisational skills make her indispensable to her employers. But, when her boss puts too many demands on her department, she finds it impossible to leave her job at her desk and enjoy her weekend with her sexy best friend, Jon.

When Jon takes away her phone and tells her she’s not allowed to check her emails until Monday morning, Nina challenges his right to order her around. His response is to kiss her into silence, then to order her to her knees. What’s even more startling is that Nina finds herself obeying—though not without a fight.

Can Jon succeed in getting Nina to switch off her managerial self as well as her phone? Or will she safeword before she can reach the sublime subspace he’s promised to guide her into?

What Readers Have Said…

I thoroughly enjoyed reading Switching Off. I believed Nina’s personality and attitude, most likely caused by her demanding workload, one that would be easy for other women in similar positions to relate to. Jon, I fell in love with from the onset, if only we could all have a calm and confident friend like him… — Romance author Donna Gallagher on Amazon.com

Switching Off was a fantastic read with a delightful insight to what many may feel about themselves and doubts they may have about how they live their lives. Well expressed and fun reading all the way through and most definitely a good way to switch off and realign a much needed part of life for most all of us. I realize this does not work for all but under the right circumstances could be fantastic. The wit and saucy undercurrents made the story so realistic that you could just see it unfolding all around you. Loved it. – Victoria Storm from Erzabet’s Enchantments
