Description from

Camilla can set her watch by her hunky rocket-scientist neighbor who jogs past her window each day. She relishes each glimpse of his shirtless abs, and is dying to see more. But it’s hard to connect with a man who doesn’t seem to know she exists…

Ivan feels at home in the lab, not in social situations. When he finally approaches his attractive neighbor, it’s not for a date—he wants tutoring in how to behave at an important fundraiser. Ivan doesn’t expect the chemistry between them to be quite so explosive, and is surprised when Cami actually accepts his proposal to embark on a series of “lessons.”

Cami soon discovers Ivan’s schedule isn’t the only thing he likes to be strict about—he needs to be charge in the bedroom as well. She’s shocked at how much she comes to enjoy her submissive side, but wonders if a real relationship is in the equation…


I was surprised at the BDSM in this book. In the beginning I liked the intellectual atmosphere and I was hoping that Camilla and Ivan would find a mutual interest.  They found that interest in a Dom/Sub relationship that seemed to hold no emotional attachment for Ivan.  That Camilla went along with that scenario was a surprise since she did have an emotional attachment.  This is a short novella so the fact that it seemed to linger forever in the sex scenes was surprising to me.  The romantic ending felt forced.
