This is a sweet love story with elements of kink. Carla is an independent woman who wants to live her love life like a man, one night stands with no strings attached, or so she thinks. Andrew is an accountant who works with her & wants to get to know Carla better. She sees him as an O.K., ordinary guy, nothing special. One night, when Carla has too much to drink they have their one night stand. Andrew wants more, Carla doesn't. He goes about learning about being dominant, and seducing her, until she comes around. There are interesting back stories for both Carla & Andrew that flesh out the characters nicely. I would recommend Ms. Ellisson's books to anyone who wants HEA with hot sex, but nothing too crazy.
